Uuuh, what's wrong?

Hey ladies and gents! I need help…this is my second grow and one of my babies seems to be taking a while to breath the husk of the seed. This is going on 5 days (from planting)and when I checked on her eariler today the one on the right seemed to be what they called “stretching”…where she was off to the side.

The first pic show the type of pot that I used. In that picture I drilled holes in the indented circles you see in the picture.

The second picture is of my babies in the grow tent. As you can see I’ve cut the bottom halves of water bottles off and use them 4 feeding(WATER). Haven’t started plant food yet.

QUESTIONS: Should I start plant food on the very next cycle?

Should I not pour where the red arrow is pointing and feed from top down? (Does it make a difference)

Should I get rid of her so she doesn’t compete for light?

They only compete when they are in the same pot

Looks like you may have a seed husk stuck on that one. You’ll need to carefully remove it or she’s going to keep on stretching until she falls over.


if you’d fill out the form @KoolHandLuke posted it would be easier to answer your questions. Like

What kind of light are you running? Or

What kind of dirt? Or is it dirt? like coco or promix? most soils that are good for our type of growing has nutes in it & won’t need any for several weeks. I would water & feed from the top. There are systems that feed from the bottom like auto pot. I also would drill a few more holes in the bottom of your pot.

Well arent you the sharp knife in the drawer.! I was definitely afraid if damaging but…got’er done.


Need info to help. Most importantly ,what’s ur light source? Then what soil? Unless coco u don’t need nutes yet. U might want to move light closer and add a little soil to pot to support stretching stems. Make sure ph water to 6.1-6.5 and check run off ph or transplant.
