Newbie here… my plants are approx 40 days old and I haven’t don’t anything except water them since they were planted. The one on the left is a Girl Scout cookie strain in FF Happy frog soil and the right is wedding cake in FF ocean forest soil. They are both in 5g fabric pots.
First question is, do I need to add nutrients? If so, what? There are so many options out there I feel like I’m spinning.
2nd, the wedding cake is trying to touch the light and I’m out of room in my tent unless I move the filter/fan to the outside. What should I do?
3rd, are the yellow leaves normal at this point? The only ones that have turned yellow don’t have any flowers on them.
Thanks in advance as I have no idea on what to do from this point on.
I agree with @MidwestGuy in regards to the fertilizer. Jacks products are great and super easy. You would need to purchase Jacks Part A and Pat B. You’d also need to buy Epsom salt.
I have 3 containers that I put about an inch or two of water. I mix Par A, Part B and the Epsom salt separately. Once I’m sure they are mixed well, I pour them in. Part A first, stir… Epsom salt and stir. Then Part B and stir. Proper mixing order is important.
I advise you to search Jacks 321 on YouTube. Same with super cropping etc
A few more questions…
How do you water? Be specific. Type of water…Do you have a pH pen?. Do you currently have any nutes? As stated they are both hungry. The tall one you need to supercrop…also mentioned. Lights…type and current cycle. Do u use DLI for stage of plant? Lets start there. I too grow in foxfarms soils.
If you topped dressed with worm castings, it will take about 1 to 2 weeks for those nutes to become avail. If you can, maake a tea out of your castings and in 24 hours those nutes will be immediately available to your plant.
Like I said, I’m a newbie so I bought a Vivosun kit because it seemed like the simplest route to go. So I’m running their “recipes” for the different autoflower stages. The only thing not Vivosun is the light. It’s a mars hydro ts1000 but running off the Vivosun recipe.
I have the yellow and blue meters so I’ll figure those out tomorrow when I have a minute.
I’ve given both plants approx 1/2 gallon of worm tea (2/3 water, 1/3 worm tea) twice two days apart.
The plant on there right seems to be real mad at me now. It’s all droopy and yellow. The moisture level is in the “moist” range of the meter. I did a slurry test and the ph came back 6.5 and the ppm came back 297.
The plant on the left seems to be doing better than the other in appearance but its levels are at 6.3 and 305.
I took the soil samples from about 1”-3” under the surface and if I did these tests right… my results are basically saying my ph level is a little high but ok and my ppm is extremely low.
What is my best route to get the ppm up without burning them or am I too late and destined to fail?
Looking much better. Now just check your runoff PPM and feed when needed. Here’s the numbers I use when I used soil: 500-600 ppm after cloning, 800-900 ppm when vegetating, and 1000-1100 ppm when flowering.
