@msparis2195, how far is that light from it, that little girl needs a lot of light so she won’t stretch to get it. I used a 150w for my first grow, I’m interested in following this. Good luck

OK @msparis2195 has his support ticket edited into his first post. My guess is he probably hit his newb daily limit on posts.

I think we are missing the strain of MJ plant and I see pH is Na. What are you watering with? Tap, distilled?

Also the soil is miracle grow potting mix

What sort of container is that your plant is in and does it have ample drainage so that the soils drys out between watering. How often do you water and how are you watering?

Ok, miracle grow potting mix is not the ideal medium for your seedling and sprouting, if you see more yellow leaves or difformity with the real set of leaves in the incoming days you will have to give a thought about putting them in an another medium, however it’s not alarming your first set of real leaves seem to be healty :+1::ok_hand:

If you don’t already have a PH pen meter and a TDS pen meter, i’ll suggest you get those, most problem come from PH or nutrients issues , it would be wise to possess them​:+1::innocent: here’s some that’s not too pricy

Hoping that’s helping you @msparis2195 :innocent::v:

@Niala no worries. I’m not experienced enough to be offering too much advice but I just wanted to highlight some of the most probable issues.

Ok should be alright, might want move it up basically use this, if it’s too hot for the back of your hand for 10 to 15 seconds it’s too hot for your plant. Now I would try about 12 to 14 inches away an see how it does, if you see that it is starting to “stretch” gets taller and the stem won’t be able to support it, so just keep an eye try the back of your hand trick an keep us posted

I don’t believe that that is anything to worry about.
when the seedling is finished sucking the nutrient’s from it’s supply the bottom leaves will turn yellow and die and fall off

@bob31 @Hawkeye_diesel @Niala @garrigan62 the last time i water it was yesterday and this the pot im using 6"
.
but now im just thinking about starting over because this how it look now in the morning.


If i start over can i still start it off in the 6" pot and just pick a different soil to use? And thank you all for helping me, cause this is my first time every growing any type of plant, it means alot. :slight_smile:

I think you’ve over watered her just aa bit.
Push or put some more soil up around her for support.
then water once a day and that’s just lightly watering. okand let’s see if she pull’s throigh ok
I think she will.

Is that pot plastic? Hard to tell. I’m sure I read somewhere not to use clay pots. Can’t remember why but maybe worth a google.

Googled and I see no reason to not use clay. I must have dreamt it.
