    Thanks for replying javadog, they have some weight to them as i watered a couple of days ago. I gave them all about 5 litres of water each.when I watered, the medium was dry to about second knuckle of my index finger. I fear of over watering so I only water when the top 2 inches of the soil is dry. I gave them a serving of trace elements 2 watering ago, mixed with seasol with is a seaweed feet. I have a feeling they are getting too big for the pots they are in and needed go up a size. The are about 600-700mm (2'-2.5') each plant in height.

    Its strange because all 6 plants get fed the same time and the same amount of water and ferts when I do fert cycles. I don't over fert, I use a little less than recommended which I have read is a good thing. 3 look yellowy green and three look healthy green. This has me stumped.

    I would probably fall back on letting it dry out very well, and
    then giving it a light feed to see how it reacts. LOL, mostly
    because it usually wont hurt and you might learn more.

    I'll give that a go and keep posted. Tha ks for your help. Last year I lost a lot of growth from over watering but they were smaller plants, I'll update with pics if I have positive progression

    Yes, and no worries.

    My old joke is that when I kill plants, I do it with water.

    Good luck

    Hahaha. Nearly did that last season. Tha ks for all your help Java. +5 for you. Would you say I should transplant to bigger pots asap? Light changes in about 3 weeks here so flowering will start around mid feb

    Just wondering if someone can help me diagnose our sick plant!..we planted a seed a few months ago and let it grow by the window. about a week ago it started developing yellow spots that soon turned to browning and then the lower older leaves started drying and dying off. I checked the ph for the first time (we havent been taking things very seriously) and i got a reading of about 4.9.... from what I've gathered, this could be the cause of a calcium deficiency so i added some dolomite lime after a few days i got a reading of about 6.8. There seemed to be a spurt in new growth which looks healthy and everything seemed ok until i checked again this morning and some of the older leaves are starting to get the yellow spots again. The ph seems to have stabilised at 6.8. Its been by the window the whole time with only little airflow so today i was planning on moving it to a a room with a similar window but set up a small fan to get the air circulating. Ive upgraded it to a larger pot with just regular all purpose potting mix. I haven't fertilised it for a few weeks and when i have its just been the recommended seasol dilution a sprinkle of all purpose slow release fertiliser. I would really appreciate some advice on what to do next and what could be the cause of these leaves dying!?

    Also i should probably mention its been summer for a couple of months now in Australia so there has been some really hot days. Would it be possible that spot it is in next to the glass window is causing heat stress?

    It really should be out doors. It's not getting enough light in that spot. The stem is really thin. How often are you watering? The really bad leaves look like the leaves on my plants last season which suffered over watering. I'm still learning as well so hopefully someone can chime in. I'd say put it outside and repot into a 3/4 gallon pot

    That's 3-4 gallon pot. How tall is it? It looks about 2' which means it would be root bound in that small pot.

    Transplanting would relate to the container you want it in to flower
    and when you want to flower it.

    i.e. you will want a couple/few weeks in any new container before flipping,
    for it to be properly used during the flowering cycle.

    I only transplanted it to that pot a couple of weeks ago. its probably pushing about 3 feet! but i don't think its root bound yet. Id love to put it outside but we live next to a school and our yard is in plain sight! its killing me. The room I'm planning on moving it to has a much bigger window but again the light wont be anywhere near as much as I wish... Im not pushing for a massive yield or anything just trying to keep it alive and healthy for the next few months until the days shorten and it begins to flower. Is it possible to do indoors without a light? I think over watering may have been and issue also! My girlfriend and i weren't telling each other when we had watered it so it got a bit too much love. would that be the cause of the yellow spots? Thanks so much!

    Its never gonna get enough lite indoors without lights unfortunately. Just put it in a cupboard with a lamp with a cfl and a fan. Try slow down watering to once every 4-5 days. Being indoors the soil will take much longer to dry. I'm going throug under watering at the moment. Good luck.

    Yellowing from the bottom up is a sign of hunger. Feeding time. :0)

    I was afraid it was overwatering or something with roots.
    feed with N only?

    Overwatering is the best guess always! :^P

    It is just one of the adages that I use....Yellowing all over is bad
    but yellowing from the bottom is hunger.

    I would add Cal-Mag as usual, but, yes, N is the primary need.

    I would like a little help cloning,
    *indoor*
    my watering schedule, I'm cloning.
    almost 2 weeks ago I took cuttings from a few of my mothers, dipped the clones in my cloning gell and placed them inside rock wool cubes that had been drenched in water. I then misted my dome, set my heating pad to 72-74 degrees f and covered my babies. a few days later, they had a mildew like odor starting so I opened my air vent all the way. another few days later I took the top completely off and let a fan touch them on low (trying to get some co2 running through them. I later put the tops back on and now they smell great but look sad, very sad! 20170620_104419.jpg 20170620_104419.jpg 20170620_104434.jpg 20170620_104440.jpg 20170620_104447.jpg my clones I put in my machine at the same time, theyre looking amazing! 20170620_104542.jpg

    I have only had success with my mister-cloner, but I am pretty sure that those
    are just a little too wet....looking hard to breath in there.

    Heating pads give me pause....so often they are more beneficial to microbes
    than they are to the plant (or fungi ;0) that we are trying to propagate.

    Sorry....not much....cloning has always been a bit magical. :0)

    thank you javadog, you are exactly right too... I was drowning them, so I moved them... I snipped the ends dipped them in gell again and put them in my machine. constructional criticism is very welcomed and much appreciated. tia

    hello all my beautiful farmers,
    I am growing indoor, I have 3 separate rooms my baby room is my question....
    Last night I clipped my healthy strong sfvog mothers and put the clippings in my cloner. in this room I have 1 light I'm running on 600 right now, a fan and of course proper venting. I have 5 gallons of water in my cloner running on 24/7 and a heating cooling to make sure my water does not exceed 70degrees f. 25mml of cloning solution and....... that's it. well my clipping after only spending the night are wilting (I swear this will be the story of my life). ANY SUGGESTIONS? CONSTRUCTIONAL CRITISISM WELCOME wilters.jpg
