Hi everyone! I’m a beginner grower, right now I’m in my 3rd growing process. This time I have consistent problems with the lack of nutrients a suppose.
I’m using fabric pots, soil, ( I suppose it has lots of coco in it, since it really puffy, using it in a first time ) mars hydro ts100, terra aquatica 3 part fertilisers. I’m controlling ph between 6,5-7; controlling temperature and humidity as well, but these stubborn plants destroying my minds since the early vegetation period. Leaves are pale green color, like it’s a lack of nitrogen, also some tips of the leaves are dry. They’re 40 days old, preflowering is coming soon. Attaching some pictures, and expecting some piece of advice from ya guys!
@gmalloy welcome to GN !
Gosh, I think your plants look pretty good ! Foliage density and color look pretty good…
They appear to be autos with the ruderalis genetics. Little bit of tip burn isn’t much of a concern. Much rather have a little tip burn than deficiencies showing up.
As you say, you may have been able to take advantage of a little bigger pots, but that’s the kind of thing you take into consideration on your next grow !
Thanks mate! You really calm me down. They’re autos, but I kinda don’t trust this seed bank since they are new on market, It says 11 weeks grow cycle. But it’s been 7th week for now, and it has no sign of pre flowering. I’m afraid they might be photos, so today I switched the light schedule to 12/12. Let’s se if it will boost the flowering.
As I mentioned before, plants had shown signs of pre flowering, but the process obviously has stopped don’t know why. Thinking that ruderalis genetics might be week since the seed bank is quite new on market. They are on their 7th week now, and actively growing. I decided to switch off the light for 48h to boost the flowering process again. I doubt that it will work, but at least I’ll give it a try.
After using the flash clean from T.A I can clearly see the good result. Looks like it dissolved the minerals on the roots, and plants can get nuts easily. Also looks like darkness did well for them, they finally start to flower.
I’ve got question. As you can see, roots had penetrated the bottom of the pot, I’ve heard that it’s better to crop them. What can you suggest me? Reminding that plans have ruderalis genetics ( which is prolly really weak ) Obviously it was a huge mistake to go for such a small pots. Will definitely go for bigger ones next time.
