Well today is the day. It's been a fun ride but we made it. I put her in the dark Monday evening at 6pm so I will be chopping her down at 6pm today. I know it's not going to be a great yield but honestly I'm surprised I got as much as I do bc like I said it's been a fun ride. Lol. I also started my next grow, it will be 3 more Wedding Cake autos from ilgm. I want to thank everyone who helped me out along the way it really did make a difference.

So I thought it was going to be a cooler day today but I was wrong. So she isn't to happy right now bc she sat in the sunshine for most of the day and the high today was 95 degrees. I'm going to give her a nice cool watering tomorrow morning.

Ok so I went at got a ph meter and a moisture tester yesterday and come to find out it needed water 💧I really thought I had watered her to much but I guess pot plants drink a lot of water. Anyways my ph level is at 6.9. Put her in the sunshine for the day and man her buds are stacking up nicely. Hope u guys enjoy the pics and as always if u see something I need to do please let me know.

pgranger Looks great how did you ph before you got the pen?

green thumb ken

green thumb ken I didn't lol. I got grow kit from a website called apotforpot.com and the instructions told me to just u distilled bottled water and I would be ok. I've been using Aquafina water since I started and yesterday was the first day I checked the ph level and it was damn near perfect.

So watering has definitely been a challenge for me. It looks like I've overwatered her AGAIN. It's crazy bc I'm only giving her around one liter every time I water her every 4 or 5 days. The leaves are curling downwards and the leaves also feel really moist. So I guess I'll let her dry out again and only give her half of what I've been doing. I really hope she can be saved and root rot hasn't set in. Also I'm starting to see that some of my roots are starting to be visible on top of the soil, can anyone tell me if that is a normal thing?

Caliban Tips turned down could be nute overdose too. Maybe some closer pictures? How dry is soil when you finger bang the pot! 😝👍

Caliban

Caliban They don’t really look overwatered to me. Maybe another opinion?

green thumb ken

green thumb ken Yea I've been told that it could be a nute problem but my thing with that is I haven't added any nutrients to her due to the fact that it's a super soil from the website apotforpot.com. and according to their instructions they give me I'm not supposed to add anything other than water. I'm having a lot of fun growing but I'll be honest man it's very trying at times.

So I raised my grow light to 20in above canopy and it seems to be helping with the curling leaves. She's getting big. I'm so happy I've made it this far. It's definitely been a learning experience, but it's been very fun as well.

Caliban Doing great. Keep a journal. Record everything

green thumb ken Thanks man. and yea I started a journal when I started.

So I'm thinking it was light/heat stress so before I put her outside this morning before work I gave her some nice cool refrigerated water since it was going to be another 91 degree day. And I also raised my grow light to 20 inches from 12 inches like @badkarma told me. So hopefully that's what it is, I guess we will find out in a day or two. I just can't see it being a nute problem for the simple fact that I'm using super soil as my medium from apotforpot.com, and from what I understood I shouldn't have to add anything other than water and love. Anyways here's some pics of the little lady today.

Is it normal for the plants to kinda droop when it gets close to lights out? Happens every night around midnight. The last picture is what it looks like during the day.

a year ago

Caliban

Caliban Yes it is normal. Especially if they get enough light.

Caliban

Caliban But those leave tips turned down might also be too much Nutes? Hard to say from the pics. Or over water?

green thumb ken

green thumb ken Yea I think I got a little carried away when I watered her yesterday. Thanks man I thought the droop was normal just wanted to make sure.

It's been cloudy and rainy the past few days so she's loving the sun today. Even though this is my first grow I feel like She's a little small for her age, I assume the reason is because I had the overwatering issue in the beginning. But all in all I feel like she's doing well. If anyone sees something that I should know please let me know.

Secman Looking good

green thumb ken Thanks man

Mystrain420-@eaegifts

Mystrain420-@eaegifts Hey I wanted to answer your question on your current post specifically without being in that argument lol. Imo your plants are just signaling sleep when they droop specifically near bedtime. If you peek in on them during lights out you’ll see the leafs are down, when they get used to a schedule you’ll see them start to fall asleep around that time everyday especially if you have far red in your grow lights. I have a far red bulb that I run only at lights out to initiate a faster transition to sleep cycle. If your plants only droop near bedtime but are perky other times of day then you’re good imo. You can/should research for yourself though and good luck with her 👍🏾

So to me I think my little lady is doing well. She's growing, still green and starting to stink. I know she's small for her age but that was due to me overwatering her as a seedling and I had a hard time with the correction. Hopefully that won't hurt my end yield to much, but TBH I'm going to be happy with with anything she yields. This being my first grow I'm not to concerned with a big yield yet, I just want to make sure I can do this growing thing. So if anyone can give any advice or tell me if something looks wrong (besides the bug bites bc I've already sprayed with neem oil) I would greatly appreciate it.

Secman Looks good. Similar tommy girls at that age.

She's looking good for the most part. The only problem I'm having now is with some bugs eating my leaves. I sprayed with neem oil last Saturday and I'll be spraying again tomorrow and hopefully that will get rid of my bug problems.

Mystrain420-@eaegifts Spider mite probably

green thumb ken

I haven't made any entries in a few days due to trying to fix my little lady. I seem to have everything under control now. The entire time I thought I was underwatering her but I was doing just the opposite. So I let her dry out a few days and it seems she's back on track, at least I hope so🤞. I also got me a AC Infinity grow tent, I knew at some point I was going to have to get one but I was trying to hold off until I knew I could do this growing thing but I went ahead and got it. Next week I'm going to be getting an AC Infinity T4 inline duct fan. After that I should be good on my grow setup until I get used to handling more than 1 or 2 plants then I figured I would go up a tent size. Well anyways guys I hope u enjoy the pics and please let me know if u see that I'm doing something wrong. Happy 4th and happy growing 😊.

pjizzle

pjizzle Since you’re asking I’m gonna offer a gem that took too long for me to understand the importance of…small plant small pot that size should be in like half gal then in two weeks go to a full gallon and in another two weeks or three go to a three gallon will help tremendously with over and under watering issues also I put an inch or two of rocks or perelite to assist drainage and it works for me

mikeywillgrowanything I do the same as puzzle. I put Bout an inch or 2 of rocks on bottom of the plant to help with drainage. I've had similar issues with overwatering as well. I use an AC Infiniti tent and I line duct fan and absolutely love it. I just need more lights

Well still having problems, so I transferred her to her permanent pot in hopes that she can be saved. I don't know how this happened bc I've done tons of research and knew that overwatering was the biggest mistake that new growers encounter. I told myself since I know about that it wouldn't be an issue, and yet I still overwatered her. SMH. We'll see. UPDATE: It looks like transplanting her was all she needed. Thank God bc I was getting a little worried I wasn't going to be able to save her.

Cobe

Cobe Hey man I litterally had a pot with a. Seedling that size and the pot fell over 3 times in 2 weeks and the plant somehow still lived. Just keeep it simple and she should catch up to the others just fine! Good luck!

green thumb ken

green thumb ken This is my first grow so she's the only one growing for now. This is just a trial run, if im successful and see that I can do this then my next grow will be 2 or 3 🪴. Anyways since I put her in the sunshine it looks to be that she's bouncing back. She's been I the sun less than 2 hours now and her leaves are already perking up. Thanks for the advice @Cobe.

Cobe

Cobe For sure bro good luck growing, she’ll be worth it!

How to tell if it's over/under water. The leafs aren't turning yellow but the drooping is kinda bad.
