    First inddor grow... These 2 plants are 2 weeks old today. Just curious as to see how they look for 2 weeks old? Also what you think is causing the yellowing of the bottom 2 leafs at this young age. One more question is when is a sufficient time to start feeding? I will be using the 3 fox farm nutes. Along with unsulphered molasses. I would really appreciate the feedback. Thanks a ton! 20180213_202229.jpg 20180213_202232.jpg

    Same strain. 2 plants (Bubblegum)indica dominant. i transplanted one and am transplanting the other tomorrow when my soil gets delivered. i am using black and gold potting soil. I actually thought i under watered, i was away all weekend and came back Sunday with my plants all wilted and the soil was super dry and cups were very light weight. they were way more wilted than this Sunday, they have bounced back a little bit.

    The yellowing lower leaves look like its not getting the nitrogen it needs. I attribute droopy leaves to unhappy root zones, either under or over watering is one of the causes. Both plants look like they have outgrown their dixie cups so good move on the transplant.

    I don't know soil very well or the brand you are using. But if its not amended with nutrients I would feed them at least the suggested amount for seedlings or early veg.

    Looks like you had previously overwatered it. If not, it’s underfed.

    Feed at 1/4-1/2 at around 3 weeks, or when cotyledons drop.

    Thanks a lot. I know the soil has earthworm castings. I am going to don a real light water next feeding. Thanks for your input.

    Thank you for your feedback. So feed at 1/4 to 1/2 of the suggested amount from fox farm to begin with?

    Just to see how your plant reacts for the first week.

    If u are using a hot soil like FF ocean forest no need for nutes when up potting.. I upot from solo cup to 1 gal around 14 to 21 days when the yellowing starts.
    I don't feed nutes til bout 2nd week in flower.

    I am using black gold. I will check and see how this compares to ocean forest. Thanks a lot!

    No problem. Didn't mean to be short was on break at work lol. But yeah the soil I have will burn my plants if I use nutes for the first 2 to 3 weeks. I start in solo cup up til 3 weeks if that in seed starting mix. Then uppot 1 gal, ocean forest with perlite and some calcium carbonate with Epsom salt for about 4 weeks. Then I uppot to 3 gal and flip to flower. Whole time just feeding PhD tap water. I use bloom nutes when I'm around 2 more like 3 weeks flower. System that works for me.

    Don't know anything about the soil u r using. Wish I could help more.

    Soil looks like its pretty light on nutes. If the plant continues to yellow I would give of 1/4 strength next watering.

    imo. it's better to get soil that has no nutrients/fertilizers in it, this way you can use your own and know exactly what the plant gets and when it got it. Or use a completely amended/ organic soil that has everything you need, this way you still know exactly what nutes the plant gets.

    In the Red cup, looks like she could use some nitrogen. But if you just transplanted to the bigger pot, then I would just water plain if there is any nutrients in your soil.
    Also this might be obvious to you, but it wasn't to me when I was starting.... Don't over water when you first transplant, water as if you are still watering the smaller pot for the first few days. Then as roots grow into the larger pot you can begin to water more accordingly.

    I think this last comment from @Joint Monster is more to the point: don't over water these babies in their new VERY large smartpots. The reason is because all that new soil has no roots yet, so if you soak the soil, the small root ball (still the size of the dixie cup) will just be sitting in the center of this new water-logged soil with no way to take it up. The only way the soil will dry out is from evaporation, not from uptake/transpiration, and you won't need to water for more than a week, and much higher chance of overwatering/root rot... That's why you're generally better off to incrementally up-pot instead of going straight from a solo cup to a 3 or 5+ gallon pot.... Since you just transplanted, I'd even recomend just pulling them out and putting them into ~1gal pots for a couple weeks, then go to smartpots...:cool:

    Also, if still yellowing, add ~1/4 dose of foxfarm grow big nute with some calmag and microbes (i use orca). Shoot for a ph of ~6.3
