No the moisture is not staying in the cup i have to spray it about 2 times a day. And how much water around the cup lid?
Just a few ounces until the soil just around the outside is wet. Like around 4 ounces or so then gradually increase. It will travel to where the roots are and the roots eill want to grow out to find that water.
Will do and i can give it 4oz from my spray bottle?
That’s a lot of spraying but yes. My finger would say, JB please unscrew that lid and just pour it.
This is important. Spray bottles are the bane of any new grower’s existence. They seem so helpful but I’m convinced they do more damage than good.
Just water your plant like a plant. Dump any runoff. Cover her with a dome once the medium is nice and saturated. The moisture will stay inside the dome if the soil is wet. Don’t water again til the pot is light. Not “lighter than it was,” but actually light. Like a cup of cake flour, not like a cup of brown sugar or water or fresh soil.
@HeyJB thats exactly what happened my finger was like nope… so i took the top off and kept watched on 4oz and gave her 4oz this morning. Also while in there watering i seen this bug crawling in the soil, i scooped it out and took it outside, looked like a mite of some sort. Any guess? Do i need to do anything? And i have a fan on but should i have that on yet?
If you have any bugs in there that are on the plant to start using some Captain Jacks Dead Bug
If the bug is a gnat I sprinkle some mosquito bites around the surface of the soil and that helps a lot. Also letting the top of the soil dry properly between watering will help too.
You’ll be up for the BOM Bud of the Month contest soon enough. If you have time, why not go by there and check out the entries. And if, just if, you think my bud is the best drop me a vote. If not, share the love with someone else on there and don’t forget to be ready to enter when your girls get ripe! Thanks!
@HeyJB i gotcha. I went to visit and omg i seen some of the prettiest buds ive ever seen, all flavors…got so happy i will order those things havent seen any knats and this the first bug i seen. So i was reading around and read that my humidity should be around 60-65 right now, any factz??? Shes 16days today.
It depends on the temperature of the room. Here is a link to a chart that will show you where you should be based on the temperature. Humidity and temperature - #2 by MidwestGuy
Yes. I just scrolled them buds again and there are some amazing buds.
@HeyJB thanks for the graph i had forgot i seen this. She just seems alot smaller than most in week 2 at 16days
Some are just slow. I had one do that my last grow. It was 3 weeks behind the others. All planted and sprouted at the same time. I was able to LST my other girls for a few weeks while that one caught up in height with no training. She’s now one of my plants again in my current grow as a reveg. Its really amazing to me that I get to harvest this one twice!
@HeyJB ok so for now keep her humidity up, temp good at 72-75 i gave her 4oz of water thi morning, so nuin for the next 2-5 days. Lights i have on 60% no nutes,no cal mag, no watering to runoff, and shes domed up. So she doesn’t need anything yet
Sounds like your set!
@HeyJB so just get off work, go in look at her and her dome had fell over and she is over to the right. So i picked her up and begin to backfill her. I see this white tip close to her 1st leaves and put dirt up to that point right below her leaves. After filling her in she is leaning over to the right. How would ik if i have root problems? Pics of what was seen is posted below
(So this is what her roots look like from tip over and picking her up)
(This is after i picked her up and backfilled all roots and plant)
(And these are her now after i tried to help)
Her roots seem to be bunched up at the end. Where im holding her nesr where her roots are purple and then from the white to the part that looks like dirt at the end are roots. Why dont i see white roots? And y are they bunched up like that.
She’s just barely at that size where she’s gonna start putting a lot more effort into those roots. You’ll even notice that for a week or so there’ll be 0 growth above the ground as she works on pushing out roots. She looks really good for being knocked over
@HeyJB yea not so nice this morning she was laid down in the dirt. I placed her back where she was and covered it with dirt. Will she be ok? I dont even know how the dome got knocked over with nobody at home. I was worried when i seen her and roots
No doubt she’s a little shell shocked from the incident. I believe she will be OK as long as you keep the dome on for now.
