Do you have drain holes in the pot?

Possibly a hydrophobic issue.
When soil becomes very dry the water you give simply runs outside the soil and out the bottom without wetting the whole mass of soil.
That dirt looks bone dry to me.


They are in the soil from A pot to grow in that we ordered last year. There are holes in the bottom also.

Also LED grow light. The water meter we have says wet. Also were started in a pod like you get to start seedlings. Could the dirt be old? Hate like heck to lose these. Also is there a difference between feminized and autoflower? This is the last few feminized seeds we had from last year. This time we have autos.

They look cold. What the temperature fluctuation throughout a 24 hour cycle?

Temp staying around 72-74 degrees without the light.

We check with the meter but I think the dang thing ain’t working. Usually everyday spraying the top of the soil with water.

I think my hubby is very over protective of these girls. He is constantly with them and checking. I say leave them alone as long as they have water and light. As they say Let it go!!


LED grow light in front of sunny window.

Gonna water good then transplant in her permanent home with happy frog and coco.

Would it be wrong if I told you your hubby maybe helping just by being a “helicopter parent” ?

The co2 he is exhaling over them while exhausting his and your nerves over them will benefit them by giving them another source they can use to fuel their growth.

Keep telling him not to tho so he will


I told him I was gonna put him in “therapy” if he didn’t stop lol. His mojo is hurting our girls mojo!! Maybe a sedative would work lol!! But I will take your advice. Leave him alone to hover the plants!! I will probably set him up a cot in the grow room when we move them to it. Atleast he doesn’t talk to them. That’s my job!!

Personally I only scold my girls and tell them to not mess with any boys or I’ll kill them!

Spraying wont do it now. They need water.
And those soil moisture meters are all but worthless.
The pH ones that jab into the dirt dont work either.


They look over watered and droopy


I dont think I would mix the two. Use one or the other. Soil needs wet/dry cycles and coco needs to be watered daily.


UNLESS you buy a soil meter from a reputable company. Like blue lab, apara, Hanna, their soil meters are awesome.
