View Full Version : Slightly yellowy tips help
31-12-08, 11:49 AM
Hey, my plants are about 1 and half weeks old and a couple of them have got slightly yellow tips and one is very fractionally starting to curl a bit (the biggest one). I have been watering them about once a day since the soil seems to get very dry at the top, i don't think i could water any less as when i do it once a day the soil at the top seems to dry out a lot, should i try and always keep the soil wet or not?? also i am using a 250wat mh bulb which is about 11 inches away from the plant. and i am not using any nutrients.

Hello Trippy,I by no means am an expert on plants but to me it looks like you have had the lights a bit too close to them young ones. I did the same on my first grow as well,but managed to save them by moving the light up a bit.You also state that you are watering them every day,this is to frequent especially as you have no perlite in your soil,so try and let them dry a little before watering again.I hope I was of some help to you and good luck with the grow buddy.

thanks i will move the light up. the reason that i am watering them once a day is that i can stick my finger in the soil and it will be bone dry.

I bet if you inspect the drainage holes in the pots,and check the soil there it will be wet.Try not to water them for now and see if they perk up a bit.Just out of curiosity what soil are you using?.

well i've lifted the light up. when i water the plants i try not too give them too much water, i water them more often but with less water. it's some special one for cuttings and seedlings

Water them until you see a little drain off and then leave for a couple of days.When you water them in this way it helps to promote good root structure.When you have watered them lift your pots and gauge the weight this will tell you when they are dry.Good luck buddy
