Can anyone suggest what I am doing wrong with these plants. Thay were starters put into soil on 3/23. I did feed them twice with big bloom 1/4 of suggested dosage. past 2 waterings have been plain ph’d water.
Do you spray anything on the leaves? FFoF is very rich in nutrients and microbes and can burn (N toxicity) with overwatering. 1 gallon pot is too small. You should consider transplanting to a 3 or 5 gallon pot.
Everything WA said. They are suffering from nutrient excess and STOP the Big Bloom. Your plants DO NOT NEED the P and K.
This is a classic case of “too much love” haha. Don’t worry; you are doing okay and they will recover.
Get yourself a TDS (PPM) meter (pen type @$10 on amazon). Both pH and PPM is an important factor. You may not need to feed at all until mid/late flower.
@Myfriendis410 missed the feed. Good catch!
No I do not spray them with anything. Going to get a tds/ppm meter now, also 3 gallon fabric pots. I just watered them last night. Should I wait until they dry out a bit before before moving to 3 gallon pots? Any other suggestions on transplant? Thank you!
How big is your space? You have started 6 plants. Each really need 2x2 each. The lights you have really are inadequate. You should consider upgrading to Horticultural lighting group board DIY or kits rather than adding more inefficient burple lights.
I actually prefer the soil a bit damp for transplanting. A dose of mycorrhizai when you do plus some Superthrive.
my space is 3x3. bwhen u say horticulture lighting are you talking about mh & hps. Kits? not familiar with these
Horticultural Lighting Group
Never heard of superthrive. I have used the mycorrhizai and than i have mixed in some diatomaceous earth in the past. When you say damp… how damp? They were watered about 17 hrs ago
Rite on. Thank you
Flush with a large quantity (bucket) of pH’d water. This will flush out some of the excessive nutrients. When you transplant, use milder potting soil. Watch your new leaves for better color and less curling.
In your 3x3 your galaxy hydro 300 lights (x2) should be OK for your first grow. You definately popped too many seed for the space.
I know I did. I figured I would just go with the 3 healthiest
Could also just cut the veg time and flip to flower quicker with all of them. It will be a jungle, but at least you get some variety for smoke. Kill the duplicates. Just remember. The plants will get 2-3X bigger so you will have to compensate. No matter what, your final yield will be dictated by the lights Watt output and efficiency, not the number of plants.
Doubt the big bloom caused that. Big bloom doesn’t really have much of anything in it. Could be the ocean forrest. I do a flush of the soil before I put young plants in the 1 gallon with OF. Runoff of my bag of OF was 2200 ppm. By the time my plant was ready for the 5gal I just transplanted as is, no pre-flush.
Is that the beginning of Mag deficiency on those lower leaves?
I’ve used FFOF multiple times with no burn, but had cal or mag issues with it if not supplemented.
Good luck ironing it out!
@GeoTropic I don’t think is Cal/mg. I think it was just over watered and there’s some microbe N toxicity going on. Pretty common with FFoF.
