Total first timer attempting to grow with "aerogarden" needing advice. Almost 2wk old autoflower showing odd blotches on leaves. Please help
I believe @dbrn32 has some experience with them.
Thank you beardless! Ill try and seek them out for advice.
Well Im soon to be wrapping up my first grow myself so I’m not going to be any help on either of those. doing photo in soil. But welcome and your in the right spot . Some good folk in here with allot of experience and happy to help.
Also I’m not sure exactly where you got your equipment but allot of these suppliers have reps that grow themselves. I wouldn’t hesitate to call them for advice to.
I know I’ve called growers choice, ac infinity, and sohum soil. They all had someone that actually sat and chopped things up with me for a good half an hour or so. Even one of the guys at sohum gave me his personal contact info. I have some real beauties thanks to folk in here and above mentioned. They’ll get you squared away.
Great advice and thanks for the welcome! Looking forward to learning the ropes.
Welcome home growmie!! @Bee
Thank you @GreggT !!!
What does your ph and ppm of nutrient solution look like? The small res on these swings a lot, and if either get out of range can your plants looking rough quickly.
I am curious, are you starting them in the aero-garden; or planning to grow to harvest in it?
@dbrn32 Ph is 6.6 and forgive my ignorance, im not sure what PPM is.
@Bobcaat Both… this plant is only supposed to be a shorty.
That’s gonna be high for hydroponic/aeroponics. 5.8 is the sweet spot, they like acidity when there’s no soil or medium to act as a buffer.
Parts per million, or TDS (total dissolved solids). It’s the measure of how much stuff is in your water, and is important to be able to assess whether your plant is getting enough or too much nutrient
What Graysin said
You will endure some challenges getting cannabis to harvest in there, but it’s possible. Keeping your solution on point is the first step.
Very difficult to grow cannabis in one. You’ll fight it all the way.
@Graysin Thank you so much!
Sorry, I had too many replies for a new user and got blocked.
So, I’m probably doing it more harm than good. Along with a high Ph, I’ve just used a 30-10-10 fertilize solution. Is this bad? I can see you all slapping your foreheads.
@dbrn32 and @Dexterado … thank you, aswell, picking up a TDS tester today.
Not necessarily. It’s my unprofessional opinion you’re too early on to be feeding super strong nutrients but without knowing what your ppm/tds is, it’s going to be difficult to help you narrow down the issue.
No worries about the replies thing, we were all there at the beginning too.
If you can’t measure your ppm or tds, you could try and reduce the amount you first did by half into the water and see if they recover by new growth. Really need to get that ph down as well. Add some ph down or some phosphoric acid to do that
@Odaharry Thank you! I’ll be doing a complete change of water tomorrow, after testing TDS and adjusting ph. Hopefully, that will help
Getting the ph down to 5.8 will help and the 30-10-10 will absolutely work. It’s more about how strong or weak is the mixture.
What nutrients is it exactly that you’re using and how much of it did you put into how much water…
I cant promise I or someone will be familiar but its a good possibility.
It’s actually Miracle-Gro for Orchids… i diluted it to 1/4 tspn per gallon water.
