Thanks lads. Good to have yous along
Looking good Spud!
When did yous start feeding in veg?
I started my nutes (and Cal-mag) at about 10 days old but only used about 20% strength
at 14 days old they got about 40%, then at 18 days they got 80%, then 100% on day 21 (I keep a log of my plants as I can't remember shit)
Starting at 10 days old was risky, as one can overload them quite easy.....many people start at 25% at about 14 days old
All depends on your growing medium. I don't feed nutes early at all and I grow in soil. I start in seed starting mix burbee organics soil/coco in a solo cup 1-16 days
Uppot to 1 gal FF ocean forest w/ 25% perlite and a tsb of Epsom salt til minimum of 42 days old
Uppot to 3 gal of same mix for flower and start my PK nutes in flower about week 3
The nutes i use
Cheers lads. I started using vitalink plant start thats basically a weak nutrient and they seem to have a bit of a burn no i just used plain water this watering
Should be fine with a little burn. Good that u watered. How much water do you. Give em? When I start out seedlings and what not I just use bottled water lol. Nestle pure life. Just take me knife and poke a hole through the top of the cap and squirt the water lol. Just seeing what others do and use
I typically will only feed nutes every second watering/feeding when growing in soil....but I most often grow in perlite (hempy style) thus they need nutes every feeding.
If you have good soil there is no rush to start the nutes
. I repot into my rols when they have their 2nd set of true leaves. This will usually hold them for a month of veg.at which time I repot again. During all this time I foliar feed with epsom, fish emulision, and seaweed extract.
Sometimes i just do plain water till 3/4 weeks old and sometimes i use the plant start. This is the first time ive seen any sort of burn this early on i just thought maybe this strain is a bit more sensitive to the nutes. I water seedlings with a little measuring cup until they are transplanted and give them 100ml at a time.
I use coco mate so theres nothing in the medium starting out
Thats normally when i would pot up aswell
I give my seedlings R/O water mixed with recharge for the first week of its seedling stage.(I grow in a soiless media. Calcinined clay and perlite) 2nd week is tap water/ro mix. At day 14 they start getting 300 ppms of jacks and calcinit. By day 16-21 they are at full strength jacks+ calcinit.
So ive plain watered again today because ive noticed the leaf burn is starting to develope on the newer growths. Im stumped as to why this is happening as ive never encountered this so early on
Maybe this particular strain is just nute sensitive? Dial it back on your next feed, see what happens.
Yeah thats what i was thinking. Ill keep it monitored anyway
It doesn't look like there's much damage done, they should recover nicely. If that's the worst that happens, you're in business!!
Yeah hopefully. Ive never had anything wrong so early into a grow. First for everything i suppose hah
I've had grows go wrong from start to finish but I still managed to get smokable bud so all good! They're tough ladies, can take a serious pounding!
I remember my very first grow, I had a few m&f white widow seeds, no lights, and a shitty damp attic with a small skylight window as my grow space. I had no concept of veg & flower periods, threw the seeds in with miracle grow and some kind of slow release tablet nute thing and just thought "right, lets see what happens." I did fuck all with them except water on occasion so unsurprisingly, the results were shockingly bad. But! 1 plant made it to the finish line and I'm telling you man, it was the nicest smoke I every had, up until that point at least. I literally got 1 joint out of it, stem n all, but she was delicious.
Just dropped my Garden of Green - Green Crack 2 seeds into the soak today. Looking forward to following your grow.
Starting to think its a difficiency and not nute burn because its gathering around the leaf edges rather than the tips
Have now transplanted them into their final 16litre smart pots. Coco that they went into was amended with some calmag and silica.
This is the girl i will probably use to clone. Shes got some nice tight node spacing and seems to be more of an indica leaning pheno and thats what i prefer. Havent decided whether to use her as a mother or take cuttings off her for a mother.
