Very first grow 🙏 (going to need a lot of help)

With the autos and Fox Farms soil, I have been watering only on Wednesday and feeding/water on Saturdays. Just seems to work for me :v:

I’ve even gone 8 weeks or longer before feeding. I do the FFOF on the bottom half and FFHF on the top half. I don’t want to feed them just for the sake of feeding them. I ran into an issue with one of my earlier autos because, I automatically started feeding at 6 weeks even though it didn’t look like it needed it and ended up having to flush the hell outta the plant :v:

If your using ffof soil for your seedling ffof is ph balenced and to hot for seedlings. I get it all the time right at first then its just fine.

I’m not familiar with soil. @big123, @Hellraiser, @Cannabian, @Myfriendis410, @Missiles @Covertgrower
May have some incite.

They look :eyes: good to me, are you going to repot them before flower?

How often do you water? What is your light cycle? What size containers?
Organic or no?

Looks like it needs water, but other than that she looks good.

Repot? @Big123 They are in 5 gallon pots… I can’t imagine how hard would be to report them I don’t think I could do it at this point. Would probably damage them. I water everyday just because I don’t water until it drips from bottom… I’ve been always afraid of overwatering so I might of been under watering by accident… usually just try to wet the top layer with 1 or 2 cups. 18/6 light cycle. Using two 320w HLG lights.
@Covertgrower I might of been under watering with fear of overwatering … was concerned cuz she looks so different then her sister and both have been getting the same


And this one got topped
I also LST them…for like 2 weeks. maybe she needs a break?

They look healthy to me. Genetics causes plants if the same strain to grow in various sizes.

K was just worried cuz the leaves look a little weird but ok thanks

@Deepsix I just watered them like you said.
My faucet water was 89 PPM and I Ph the water to 6.59.
WW1 was 914ppm
WW2 was 812 ppm
Auto 1 was 1210
Auto 2 was 2510
Auto 3 was 1710
… I’m not even sure if these are good numbers but there’s a big different in numbers from the 5 gallon pots which are the white widow photos to the 3 gallon pots the auto ones…

Maybe one of you guys can help me with my PPM mentioned above… I’m not sure what to do next. The plants are 6 weeks tomorrow.

Looking big enough for a good soaking of the soil in my humble opinion :innocent:

Soaking of the soil? I was referring to the PPM levels… I’m not sure if they are too high or too low… if they need to be fed or not

Alright so I’m not real sure about this… only because I don’t water everyday like this…
But I believe you need to fully soak the soil and then some. In my opinion you need to water that soil nice and slow and completely saturate it until you begin to see some run off. That will essentially flush some of the excess salts and nutrients away. You will want to check the ppm of the run off to get a good idea what is going on in your soil.
For example. In the beginning stages of grow. With new FFHF soil my runoff ppm was close to 2500ppm. Which is pretty high in my opinion. So as the weeks went on the soil drys and I water with minimal nutrients. My feedwater ppm was really only 300ppm give or take throughout the entire grow. But as I monitored the runoff ppm it began to get lower and lower eventually getting down to 900ppm by harvest.

So I would recommend that you saturate your soil until a good amount of run off then LET THAT SOIL DRY OUT. I almost always water when I began to notice the plant was wilting a little. When it needed water, I saturated that soil until run off and checked ppm. I tried to maintain a 900/1300ppm but every strain is a little different and have different tolerances. When the soil was higher than I wanted I would only water with only 6.5ph tap water. When I noticed the number starting to get a bit lower I would feed them pretty good. You really shouldn’t have a problem with this in soil. But I believe if you can saturate and check/ maintain the ppm of the runoff you’ll be all set!
Any questions just ask! I will try my best to help. If anyone thinks I am wrong please let me know as I am still learning too! Thanks and happy growing @FreshGrowmie :heart:
