They are growing...are they doing OK?

Hi. Never grown in my life, just started using the last few months and my son found a few seeds in some mango, or mango kush we bought. He dropped them in the veggie patch thinking they would not grow and two out of three sprouted. Well a bit of a shock but kind of happy and nervous at the same time. :blush:
They were growing next to the strawberries and then we found something was eating them…strawberry slugs!! So we picked them off and transplanted them into pots and they came inside on the window sill. They continued to grow but looked week and gangly. I gave them a fertilise with charlie carp (a weak solution)

I bought a grow tent set up, 1m x 1m x2m high. A filter system and a grow light. We have them under the light in the spare room. I have wrapped them in a reflective car visor until the grow tent is delivered. Up until 2 days ago they were under normal room light for approx 12 hours.

I was not planing on growing but this has turned into an exciting exercise. Hoping I can get some advice. do they look OK for approx 7 weeks? The bushy one is approx 17 cm and the smaller one is 15 cm
They have had such a tragic start to life and I am gobsmacked they are still alive.

Welcome to the community.
I only see one plant, but considering what it’s been through, it looks good.
I’d add an oscillating fan to your tent. It’ll help strengthen the plant as well as circulate air.
What soil are you using?
I’d just water it for the time being. The burnt tips on the end of the leaves indicate nutrient burn (too much).

Welcome to ILGM @leolass420. They look okay, considering. Be careful not to overwater. Try to let them dry out a little between feedings. Good people here, don’t be afraid to ask any question. :v:


OK, Thank you, @Hungrybud
I do not know as it was a seed in a bag we bought.

Thank you @elheffe702.

hey @leolass420, welcome to the forums! this is a great site with lots of very friendly, helpful, and well experienced folks. as said above, don’t be afraid to ask any questions. like you i started on a whim and had absolutely nothing when i started germinating 5 seeds lol. we both are doing it the hard way. i am one week into flowering and i doubt i would have made it this far without all the great help i have gotten on here. i also would have wasted a bunch of money on stuff i shouldn’t have gotten lol. there are lots of topics on here to read and that will help a bunch and the grow bible is good also. good luck with your grow, have patience, and most common mistake is overwatering, i haven’t yet (knock on wood) lol.


Thank you @monkman,
I hope yours gives you some nice buds. :grinning: I have had some wonderful advice on my first post and I really appreciate it.

I have noticed that they are greening and thickening up since I put them under the light. I can not wait for the tent and air filter to arrive. I will set up in the shed so the room does not smell, at the moment it smells like we had a weed party.
