I’m not sure what I’m doing on taking care of these plants, trying to post on this forum, why we can’t keep the plants alive… just a mess I guess… please help

Sherry… Noclue

Welcome to the forum.

Pictures of the plants and a description (watering and feeding practices, what are you using for light,…) of how you are taking care of the plant will help us help you.


Welcome to the forum
Pics of the whole plant, and pics of specific areas of concern (under white natural light preferably)
Plus if you can fill out a support ticket (copy and paste with answers filled in) will help enormously with diagnosis of your plant

Take some time and go thru my tutorial, should give you some perspective on growing marijuana.

If you still have plants that are alive, post a pic and see if we can help you get them on the right track.


Click that little button in the green circle to load a photo. Wait until it loads 100% before editing your post or actually posting. Also, that support ticket is a lifesaver. Good luck and happy growing!!!


This was yesterday… sorry for the late response…at lunch I will use the template and answer all the questions… right now humidity is 50% and temp is 75… fan running in grow tent, humidifier going, light on (purple light) watered yesterday lightly, a smidge of water in bottom of tray for babies…. They get 12 hours of light 12 total darkness (all is off when they sleep) thank you so much for all your help and guidance it is truly appreciated… NoClue


Definitely fill out the support ticket. I can almost guarantee this is from over watering though.

It’s best to fully saturate the pot, get some runoff coming out of the bottom holes, then wait till the soil is almost completely dry before you water again.

Also, are these autoflowers or photoperiod? If they are autos, you can increase your light on schedule. Some auto growers here rum 18/6, some even run 24/0. If they are photoperiod, just so you’re aware, you can run them 18/6, which keeps them from going into flower (changing schedule to 12/12 puts a photoperiod plant into flower) then once they are large enough you then switch them to 12/12.

Also you say you have a fan in the tent, which is great, but do you actually have something like an inline fan to bring in fresh air? Pics of the whole setup would help.


Yeah , You definitely have problems how much are you watering and how often . also do you have holes in the bottom of those pots For drainage ? :v:

NA (non applicable)

What strain, Seed bank, or bag seed - seeds

Method: Soil w/salt, Organic soil, Hydroponics, Aquaponics, KNF — soil, nutrients, dried blood, bone meal

Vessels: Pots, Grow beds, Buckets, Troths - pots big and small

PH of Water, Solution, runoff (if Applicable) not sure drainage trays

PPM/TDS or EC of nutrient solution if applicable not sure

Indoor or Outdoor - indoor grow tent

Light system - yes hanging (purple light)

Temps; Day, Night - day 78 degrees

Humidity; Day, Night - day 51% right now

Ventilation system; Yes, No, Size - has holes in the tent

AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier, - humidifier (grow tent is in the closet)

Co2; Yes, No - not sure

I know I’m not much help, but if you can instruct me on what to get and how I can do that. Water too much not enough where is the happy medium? Does it get easier? I feel like I have a room full of Toddlers I’m trying to coral…. Should the humidifier be in or outside the tent? Pics attached are from this morning at 6:50 am…. I will be able to hop on here this afternoon… your help is greatly appreciated….

I can’t help as far as building a soil, but I will say that if I were you I would get Coco coir and Jack’s 321.

My info on Jack’s:
I recommend Jack’s 321. It has literally everything needed minus any beneficial microbes you may want to add (I use Real Growers Recgarge and Fish Head Farns FishSh!t). Insanely cost effective too! 3.6 grams Jacks Part A, which is the primary special sauce of Jack’s and contains trace nutrients as well. 2.4 grams Jacks Part B (Calcium Nitrate), which is your main source of, you guessed it, Calcium and Nitrogen. 1.2 grams Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulfate), for your Magnesium and a bit of Sulfur.

Part A - 1000gram bag for $26.99 = roughly 277 gallons, $0.10 per gallon.
Part B - 1000gram bag for $23.99 = roughly 416 gallons, $0.06 per gallon.
Epsom Salt - Depends on brand. Bag I bought was 5lb (2267grams) for $13.99 = 1889 gallons, $0.0074 per gallon.

Then they have 25lb bags too! :rofl:

If you see a magnesium deficiency, just add more Magnesium Sulfate… Nitrogen deficiency? Just add more Calcium Nitrate.

My info on Coco:
Using Coco is considered a form of hydroponic growing. Coco is inert, so it has virtually no nutrients in it. Most people use straight Coco or a coco/perlite mix, then add nutrients to the Coco, making it nice and rich for the plant. You simply feed Coco nearly every day because it dries fast, so no guesswork there.

Coco and sphagnum peat moss are very similar, but peat is usually too acidic to be used straight for plants, plus its not sustainable. Coco on the other hand comes from coconut husks, which would end up in a landfill if not used as they are a by-product of coconut farming, it’s pH neutral, and since it’s inert you are starting with a “blank slate” for your nutrients, provided you don’t add stuff like bat guano, etc etc. You have a far better idea of exactly what is in the substrate this way, which is my favorite thing with Coco.

Plus, and keep in mind I know nothing about organic mediums and how they work, but if you add too much bat guano or something, how can you correct it? Just have to wait for it to dissolve out and become weaker?

Again, I don’t know how that works, but it seems like more unnecessary work to get Coco, then add a bunch of stuff like bat guano, when you can just use straight Coco and a nutrient line like Jacks 321 (most common nutrients for Coco currently).

Not to mention, don’t be scared of the “water every day” thing with Coco. You can buy a 5 gallon bucket for instance, a WaveMaker (device usually used in aquariums to keep water moving and mixed) and make a large batch of nutrients for 5 days or so. When you go to feed, re-ph (pH drifts over tine), then apply tge mix to the Coco. Coco also needs less water to become saturated, so you aren’t going through like a gallon a day or whatever you normally go through with a soil based grow.

This is why a lot of people are switching to Coco. Takes out a lot of guess work, better for the environment, and from what I’ve seen gives a faster growing plant.

I know this is a wall of text, take your time reading it. But I would go an easier route than trying to start off by making your own soil… You want to eliminate as many variables as you can when you first start off IMHO.

As far as the watering goes, simply do not water again until the pot is light. You should be able to pick up the pot and tell if it is time.

I see you also aren’t testing the pH of your water, which is ok in certain circumstances. What water source are you using? Getting a pH and TDS/EC meter are going to be important.

We’re these clones? Are you sure they rooted? Lights set to 18-6 for veg


U have one plant that can be saved for sure but the other one not to sure about that , i would transplant into a bigger pot with some promix hp or a mix of ffof and ffhf i believe ur roots need more room to grow and spread out

Not sure… I have seeds that are auto flowering we will use next

I have a bigger pot… what brand of soil? I’m sorry I’m new to all this in helping him.

If u can get promix hp its a much better soil but if u cant get that fox farm ocean Forest and fox farm happy frog mix the two together

Am I chopped liver? :frowning:
