    Default New plant looking a little unhealthy?

    Attached are photos, two leaves looking upwards. getting a bit worried

    Growing under a light I have in my room, its a discreet grow, light is kinda shit, but way better than sunlight atm.

    Also im thinking about keeping this very small, and flower early, any suggestions?

    Strain is, Super Lemon Haze x Bubba Kushabout twenty something days old

    Hi mate my suggestion to you is get some decent light if your serious about growing your own
    Don't know where your from but you can get a decent 250 watt hps for as little as £50, and if you have a small cupboard about 3 ft x 3 ft and 5 feet high, paint it white, cheap oscillating fan and your away and build up as you go
    Because a basic room bulb ain't gonna cut it

    Yeah I deff agree ur gonna need something better then a regular bulb. Hit up eBay see what u can afford light wise it's the most important thing IMO led or hps will draw better bang for your buck in light and electricity I'm assuming ur using a 100w bulb. See what you can do it would suck to wait 4 months and get something crappy In return or worse it dies

    You can get a decent light for cheaper than a night out or a weeks worth of street weed to get you going, and a few weeks later same for a filter
    You don't have to have a tent, I bought one and after being paranoid about visitors mooching around my house I've lined a cupboard with the tent walls but white paint would serve you well it's the best choice I made

    Birthdays coming up, and few people owe me a bit of money, so definitly investing in a light when that comes, I was looking on ebay, would this be a suitable light, for 1 plant? or something a bit stronger?

    You’ll be surprised how much a plant in veg can smell also ..but as others have said unless your prepared to throw a few pounds or dollars into your setup ..your pretty much pissing into a strong wind

    Id be looking at a 60x60 cm tent with a 4 or 5” extraction and carbon filter ..a 250hps light..but then after a year or less you’ll be unhappy with tent size and want a little bigger 1.2x1.2m ....trust me ...so up to you..but a lightbulb and windowsill just won’t work

    Its good to keep an eye to not over-watering your plant, keep the rule of thumb by digging your finger into the soil and check the moisture. When you feel 1-2 fingers deep dry you can feed your babies, or do the same by checking the weight of the pot, it seems that the bed medium that u using keeps a lot of moisture, maybe u killing your plant's oxygen on the root system. Keep a working fan sending air directly to your pot or by moving, not so close to your plant so you will prevent bend, it will help with the aeration in the roots.

    I got my whole grow kit for £175 on ebay

    came with 600 watt duel spec bulb , hood , ballast
    1.2 x 1.2 x 2.0 buddah tent
    light hangers
    4" extractor and carbon filter
    50l coco
    coco feed


    granted that its a basic setup but it works perfectly & Keeps the smells hidden .

    If your going to do it atall you have to do it properly ,

    There is no point growing under the wrong lights or in the wrong environment ,

    You will end up with crappy amount of smoke for the money , risk and effort you put in ,

    £200 to get Lots of ounces every harvest is well worth it in the end

    No point taking it to flower now. You need to nurse it back to health before switching to flower. What type of soil are you using?
