I think @Graysin has the dots pretty well figured out, maybe can help you out.
I see that now
Curious why you are adding Epsom (magnesium) without extra calcium?
My experience says the Dots need extra calcium - I usually supplemented in the form of CalMag, but since these have already been getting a disproportionate amount of magnesium from the periodic Epsom, I wouldn’t suggest it necessarily. Calcium nitrate or another form of calcium might be better suited.
My rough understanding is there’s a ratio of 2:1 for calcium:magnesium, so it’s likely been thrown out of whack with the Dots + Epsom feedings.
I read the sulfur is beneficial during flower (epsom = magnesium sulfate), guess i didn’t consider the extra mag would throw things outta whack. I’ll stop the epsom and head to the hydro shop and see what i can get for boosting calcium without the magnesium. Thanks @Graysin and @dbrn32
I just received my seeds from you yesterday. I am in the process of germinating. Once I stick them in my tent after they sprout, do I keep the light on 24 seven? Also, what should humidity be? And the temperature?. I’m using the jiffy pods after I soak them in water for 24 hours and they will be covered with a cup. Is this correct. Thank you.
Yes; this will provide constant warmth for the sprouts.
Most everyone that’s used peat pots has hated them. A better alternative is to use a Solo cup with a gazillion holes in it and filled with a seed starter or straight coco. Something without any added nutrients as the sprouts can be easily burned by strong soils.
Here’s a good read for you to get started with. Welcome to the Fam.
For seedlings i like to keep temp similar to what i try to grow in, 80f. You want rh rather high in beginning, but just do what you can.
Local hydro dude suggested calcium alone over calcium nitrate based on the flower stage. Also realized a goof worth sharing for grow dot users…epsom is a magnesium salt and (my understanding) is that grow dots aren’t salt-based therefore no need to water to runoff, but if you’re supplementing with a salt-based product you might need to water to runoff to avoid build-up. Thanks again @Graysin @dbrn32
Where did you get info to draw this conclusion on the dots? You technically don’t have to water anything to runoff, but a lot of us just do as best practice to make sure we get a good even fill on our nutrient solution.
Week 5 of flower watered last night and fed plants woke up this morning and had yellowing leaves throughout the bottom of the plant any ideas thank you please help. Just Dr Earth bud and Bloom fertilizer tea as directed I did add more water than usual it’s the first time I ever saturated the plant you don’t think it could be over watering do you the very first time I ever oversaturated the plant and it’s not setting in water
If you have pictures and fill out a support ticket we could potentially help. Based on your description it sounds like an organic soil grow? If so, the yellow leaves didn’t happen from anything you did last night. These issues are usually building for a week or two before you see them in plants. Saturating the pot isn’t really an issue either, unless it was already wet before you watered. The roots can handle being soaked as long as allowed to dry out after. It’s constantly being wet that usually causes the issues.
That’s what the guy at the hydro store told me and i may have read it on one of the journals here too. My apologies if it’s wrong, i have a great deal of respect for this forum and don’t want to spread bad info
Nobody here concerned about being right or wrong, just that we try to get you the information needed about your plants.
Nice harvest and very pretty.
I just added 50% nutrients yesterday and lowered my lights about 28 inches above plant. Can you help tell me what’s wrong ? Thank you !
What’s her ‘forever’ home? She’s ready for it and a steady supply of food. Imho
Welcome to the Forum @Gwell
Welcome to the community Growmie! I’m assuming this will be a hydro grow? What’s the root growth look like under the rock wool?
1st pic looks overwatered, the 2nd looks like she’s recovering. I would be feeding at 500 PPMs and a PH of 5.8 and only feeding a shot glass full every 2-3 days. Keeps the temp around 78-82 and RH of 65-75% and the dome will help with the RH
Small white roots just starting to come through the bottom
