Sour Diesel Auto SLOW!

Hello, I am wondering if I didn’t get regular seeds because I am going on 12 weeks and these Sour Diesels are flowering so slow. All my other ILGM autos have been done in 10 weeks, the leaves are starting to turn yellow and they drink a lot of water but I just don’t know. I realize all Autos are different but at this rate I have a month or more to go, weird, thank you in advance.IMG_0263

Can you post some pictures in regular light. What’s your light schedule?

@HornHead I usually do 20 on 4 off. Kind soil with a little cal/mag, I have been growing this way for a year without a problem. These are the thirstiest plants I have ever grown, they always looked wilted without at least 4 cups of water a day. I wonder if I had shocked them by not giving enough water early on but that seems like a stretch.IMG_0264

Looks like the kind soil has ran out of nutrients. Looks hungry. Go 12/13

13 hours of darkness would help light a fire under their butt. The droopiness and yellowing concerns me though. I start to ask a question, and then I think “but what about…” It’s probably best if you fill out a support ticket for us all to be on the same page:

@HornHead @elheffe702
Horn, you nailed it. I have included hydro bloom and the leaves have all started turning green. I have been using 2 pounds more kind soil than they even recommend in my 5 gallon rootkiller pots and kind soil emphasizes adding no nutes but that is not what I have just learned, thanks much!
