First timer here. Plants are runtz auto flowers ILGM seeds. 66 days old. Had couple problems in beginning of grow. But been pretty easy till now. Opened up tent this morning and both plants have drooping leaves and one the leaves are turning yellow. Plants are very close to light so was wondering is it light burn or something with nutrients. Just watered both of them each plant took 4 cups. Last water was Wednesday. Tent is Vivosun 2x4x60 with a vs 1000 light. Light has a 25,50,75,100% dimmer switch. Should I dim light? Can’t move light up anymore.
A little drooping is no big deal. They do that sometimes at lights on or off time and sometimes when they need water of course but also if they have just been watered.
And leaves turn yellow and fall off as a natural process.
Your plant looks very healthy. Better than a lot of growers.
Don’t over react and change anything. Looks like you are doing fine.
By the looks of the plant I would say light is a bit on the low side. The plant stretch indicates underlighting. But only a little. Next grow you should increase or lower the light and keep the stretch down more. Otherwise it is in great shape.
btw welcome to the forum
Forgot to mention light cycle is 24/7.
That’s fine for an auto. Some prefer 18/6. But she looks happy so no need to change.
I assume the light you mentioned is a VIVOSUN VS1000
As I said you can give it more light next time.
I would stick with a single plant with that light. Its a good light but not enough for multiple plants.
That is the light I got. Just got another one so I’ll 2 in tent for next grow. Do you think that will be enough lite for 3 plants in the 2x4x60? One more question when will buds start to swell? Stigmas are changing well and trichromatic are developing nicely. Buds just haven’t thickened up yet. Thanks for the great advice.
Just takes time. They go from what you see on the left to fattening up like the right.
This one was one I grew and its the same bud about a month later.
And I would probably stick with two plants if you have a second light.
You can do 3 but you probably will get the same amount of harvest from the 3 as you would with two.
I would add the second light now. They need the light to fatten up. Too little light and the buds will be airy instead of dense.
Actually a great piece of advice.
I would second this idea.
Little nervous about putting second light in plants are about 6 inches from light now. No more room in tent to move lite up.
Two lights both dimmed a little more than the one you are running now will be excellent. Its exactly what you need.
Do it like this…its a crappy drawing but you get the idea
For what it is worth…I tend to blast my plants with light.
I would turn them both to 100% and use an exhaust fan to control temperature to about 80 F.
Edit: Actually, I would super crop them about half way down the stalks and lower the lights along with turning them up to 100%.
Did the same have a 3x3 here LST got it a little wide of the light, have mine coming whenever they decide actually delivering it… must be a lot of folks ordering them now was like a 2 week wait
It’s an awesome drawing…
even looks like a little tree growing!!!
