I’ll give you my description of my setup. If you could help me define where I am in the cycle, and what I need to do to get it back in track, and for future grows, that’d wonderful. Admittedly, I started smoking a lot more in the interim, and have been pretty lazy when it comes to research lately. Wonder why. Also, listening to some of the people my family, they say all my plant needs is water. Well, I got some yellowing. So let’s see where I went wrong. Or need more care next time.
-White widow Autoflower seeds from here.
-AC infinity CloudLab 3x3 tent.
-260W XL QB V2 Rspec LED Kit.
-medium grow kit 5 gallon from apotforpot (more on that later)
-AC Infinity 6” exhaust fan with Bluetooth controller
That’s what I have. The idea was to start 2 plants at the same time. One in the medium kit from apotforpot and the other was going to just be started in the jiffy pellet and transported to Fox Farm Ocean Forest. I wanted to see what the difference would be between the 2 plants. To then determine if I would need more kits when I do multiple grows. Well that didn’t work. Only one came through, so I used the kit. Could’ve been a watering issue. Idk.
So here’s where I am. I will attach pictures but one whole side of the plant is turning yellow and seems to be drying out? I water it with the can from the kit, once every other day. Is that enough? Too much? I really am not sure. Also, I’m not sure if I’m actually in the flowering stage now, and should change my light over to 12/12. It’s on 18/6 right now btw. My questions.
-What stage am I in? And should I change my light over? I know it doesn’t matter much with AF seeds, but still
-What could the yellow be caused from? Is it fixable, and regardless, how do I prevent it for next time?
-Am I watering too much? Not enough?
-What else do I need to help this be more successful next time? Ph meter I presume? I didn’t get one yet. But if it helps, I’ll have to do it before the next crop.
-Will I need another kit? Or is the FFOF going to cut it for me next time?
I think that’s it for now. I appreciate all of your help. And I do listen and take suggestions.
As a side note, I haven’t smoked (before this year) for almost 20 years. Whether it was family, or because of my job. Being in an office now and not a line tech, I’ve been able to start smoking again. Wow. It’s an absolute life changer. It makes me wonder what I have missed for 20 years. I feel like I am a better father, husband, person. If any of you have anxieties or childhood trauma, then you know. This has literally cleared space in my head, that I didn’t even know was rented. It’s incredible. So being able to come here for support with growing my own stash, is tremendously helpful, and I thank you.
