white widow looking poorly
Im on my 1st grow, Iv got 2 plants that have been on 12/12 for 4 days under a 600w hps, no sign of gender yet. One of the plants (white widow) is looking really ill today, all its lower leaves and branches are drooping down.
The plant is in a 11 ltr bucket, Iv had problems with the soil compacting, and water drainage, iv not watered the ill plant in 5 days but the soil under the surface still feels a bit damp, so im wondering if this could be the problem.
Iv not used any nutes so far, but got some due to arrive in the post tommorow.
The 1st pic shows it yesterday when it was ok, the 2nd pic is today after the leaves started drooping...
Any ideas what the problem could be?
give it a good water mate, it defo needs it after 5 days, how long has it been in that compost, what are your temps, what soil did you use
could you take the plants out the room and take piccies as its better to see the leaves as the grow light make it look yellow
agreed bubbs pal that baby needs a drink.weed heed
I planted it into the 11 ltr tub about 3 weeks ago. Temps when the lights are on have been up to 30c, but mostly its around 24c, when the light is off its no lower than 10c, temps were a big problem before i got my tent and 5" extractor. The soil is B&Q cutting and seedling soil, with about 25% perlite (added by me).

Thanks a lot mate, shes is looking much better now, I'll get rid of the yellowing leaves as you said. The nutes have just arrived today (bio bizz grow and bloom) so Im going to give them there 1st small amount of food in a few more hours.
Cheers for help guys.
no worries at all skunkby,for the first feed with bio nutes go for 1ml grow and 1ml bloom per litre of water that will be fine and from then on you can go 2mls each per litre of water.I wouldne be waterin till the pots dry out so if ye watered in the last couple of days leave a bit before waterin again i usualy give them about 2litres each till the pot is soaked and very heavy then dont give them a drink till the pot is really dry and light thats how cannabis likes to be fed so the roots can search for the water.weed heed
