First time grower.
Hi @PlayHouse welcome to the neighborhood I can see some tiny specs on the leaves, is that what you are talking about? If so it’s possible they are bug bites, you will have to watch for bugs
Better picture. Prolly being paranoid. She’s such a runt I want to try to maximize her potential. Ideas or thoughts?
It’s already in flower so there’s not alot you can do but keep her fed and that’s with as much light as you can and a quality cannabis specific flower food
Edit = your light can be dropped down quite a bit, probably like 10-12 inches from the plant. I would move it down to like 20 inches then wait a couple days and watch it then if the plant is still happy lower it a couple inches watch it again and if happy lower again… keep doing this until the light is 10-15 inches from the plant or if the plant looks unhappy after moving it lift it back to the last place you had it and leave it there… I hope this made sense
Thanks easy! Appreciate the input. She just started flower so was getting ready to do the light. Didn’t know how much. Thanks.
So can I take it from your comments that I can’t trim to make more colas since she’s already in flower? I know nothing about that.
Hate to be the bad news guy but that’s what I’m saying. That’s the part of autoflower I don’t like if there’s a little issue in the first month there’s no way to extend it to give it time to mend. They do continue to grow a little more once in flower so the lower branches might come up and surprise you but I wouldn’t expect to much
K cool. Thanks. Gonna have to start one from seed myself.
I would check out Nebulahaze on growweedeasy she is real easy to understand and she does these step-by-step tutorials for improving your yield. If you search for the site or her name then once you get there search on the site for “5 easy ways to improve your yield” and there’s others but I like that one. It really helped me learn a lot
Edit = don’t give up on that one though just finishing it will teach you a lot
Thanks again for the advice. I’m gonna max this pitiful runt out! Lol I’d like to follow you cuz it seems that you are a auto fan and I’m going to start down that path first.
I’ll tag you over to my thread so you can see what’s happening over there
update- looking good. Just a tad thirsty this morning cuz I’m waiting for my FF trio soil nutrients. Any recommendations on first drink? Using living soil.
I would start at week 9 on the fox schedule here it is if you don’t have it… the trio is just the three in green. The problem with changing from living soil to feeding with salt n chemicals is that you will have to ph your food n water solution… and make sure you water enough that you get a minimum of 10% runoff after your first feeding
I don’t know, but might PlayHouse need to reduce the amounts from the suggested feeding schedule, since the plant is small? And maybe start nutes in smaller amounts anyway to see how the plant takes to it? Again, I really don’t know since I’ve never used those nutes and I’m newer to growing; it just seems that I’ve seen many posts from folks who have nute burned their plants.
Thanks for the responses guys! I’ve only been using Dr. Earth home grown pump n’ grow weekly until this last week. That has a 3-2-2 ratio. Then I read lower the nitrogen and raise pk while flowering. Used shultz cactus plant food today 2-7-7 until I can figure the ph concerns. So should I not use nutrients with live soil? Inherited it with the runt.
Bought a ph meter (have) and tds meter being delivered tomorrow.
Dont really understand how or what I need to do with your statement.
I didn’t see this one first… I wouldn’t start the fox farm if you still have this. Not sure when you gave it this last or how much but it doesn’t look very hungry. You were already doing good with it… there’s a lot of reasons for a plant to stay small most of the time it’s to much or to little water so the roots don’t develop, or not enough light
