    Default Over watering or nutrient issue or ...?

    Hey guys so I got some bad advice and was giving my plant too much water and nutrients, or at least I think that's the problem. The leaves have gotten a bit darker at the top and started to droop over the past few days and the tips have curled down, sort of limp like and weak. Also this is my first plant so I'm a little scared it's not female could someone confirm, no matter how many joints I blaze I can't seem to shake the fear 😭

    Also any other tips or criticism is welcomed cos as I said I'm a wack ass n00b 😁👌that much that I couldn't get my images to upload from a phone or from the image host site so sorry about that 😂

    I noticed 1 of he leaves is curling down...googled that and got
    "Nitrogen Toxicity

    A Nitrogen toxicity is the result of the plant getting too much Nitrogen (usually from too high levels of nutrients overall, or by using a Vegetative nutrient in the flowering stage). It causes dark green leaves and curled tips (“the claw”).

    One of the main symptoms of an Nitrogen toxicity is curled tips (“the claw”)"

    I would stop feeding for a week.....what are you feeding them and how often? how often do you water?i do 1 day water, 2nd water+plant magic old timers, 3rd day nothing and repeat...

    I thought it might be that, thanks mate, and yeah I watered it today but just about 200mls or so. I was watering it 500+mls every day. Basically my gf's best pal's boyfriend told me to add 5ml baby bio to 1 litre every day. This seemed like too much water for my pot so I did maybe 500-700. I've realised now that's still far too much, but thanks I think I'll try your 3 day rule. My other friend gave me bio bizz, and potassium and phosphoric acid I think?not gave the plant any of that cos I was thinking of giving the plant a couple days to recover, what do you think?

    the amount of water differs, you dont want to over water, so to that aim water 2 days out of 3 and that gives them a day to dry out, my understanding the dry out day is good for them. regarding the other question, no idea,i buy feminized or auto flower, both 100% female, saves the hassle of waiting to see what sex they are...there will be stuff on here(somewhere) showing you how to tell, or youtube..but i would recommend feminized or auto flower to save the hassle...

    Letting the top inch or two get dry between watering will help convince the roots to grow and search for water a bit I think. It also reduces risks of bugs I think.

    I usually water till I see it start leaving the pot. Then I get out the turkey baster and drain the excess from the tray.

    Also, i would not be feeding that plant at all yet. If it is in anyway decent soil, theres no need for feed for at least 4 weeks. What size is the pot it's in? Looks a bit small , but hard to tell from the pic.

    Thanks guys, i gave it yesterday off to dry up a bit, first couple inches was dry so just gave it about 300 ml of water but holding back on nutes. I think colour wise it's looking a bit less overly dark. And I have a bigger pot but the box Iv got it in doesn't fit it so I'm waiting til I get a tent off my mate or build a bigger box but I might be getting the tent today. From the pictures do you it's think it's definitely female? And how many weeks would u wait til adding nutes?

    From my limited understanding, it is far too early to tell the plant's sex. And i would wait about another 7-10 days without nutes. Decent soil has enough in it to bring a plant right up to the start of flowering in most cases.

    Aw damn, fair enough then. Yeah I thought at least week seemed right but I'll give it 10 days n see how it goes, I got pretty basic soil from a supermarket I need to get more so I can put it in the bigger pot so I can check if it's got nutes in it or not.

    Haha, well you're going to laugh. I got told 1 to buy but it turns out it's only 18w, it's an led, but I'm going to either buy a mars hydro 300w if my mate doesn't come through with his 400w Hps which he had good results with on an auto. I'm a total noob so I originally just chucked a seed in a pot and I've been throwing bits n pieces together. I'm skint so my budgets super low ��

    Pop them outside if you are the uk.

    They will always be sickly until you get them under some proper light.

    A large 200w blue cfl is perfect for vegging.

    Yeah outdoors would be far preferable until you get some proper lights. They will not grow under that 18w at all. You could pick up a cheap plastic greenhouse if thats feasible. They are only about 20 quid.

    Yolomcswag i am not that far ahead of you in the n00b stakes but what i would advise is starting again with your budget for growing and buy seed(s) so your not wasting time learning male/female on top of the things u have to learn already...regarding your budget, some people spend as little as £50(or less) others 1000's..youtube will show you tons of different setups, take you time and get what suits you. mine for example is a cupboard lined with reflective sheets, led's, house hold fan, carbon filter.. u have bought other things after that but dont want to confuse the issue further.
    My first grow i had(imo) a good setup, watched loads of videos, read bits and bobs found on google and everything looked good..i ended up making mistakes and got a crap yeild, i joined here, read some more, asked some questions and i am 2/3 thru my 2nd grow and everything is (touch wood) great. regarding bio bizz i binned it as it was harsh on my girls and changed to plant magic old timers(thanks to ppl on here), its not only cheaper but the ladies seem to love it. good luck on your journey m8

    See I am in the UK but I'm in Scotland haha, so I dunno if it would be warm enough outside, it was only 19 degrees at the highest oday where I am. Iv currently got it in an old washing basket lined with a mylar emergency blanket with a lid and the light. will the fact it's got the mylar make much difference or do u think I should still just put it outside ?

    And Wasted2 i already wish I could start over and do it properly from the start but I started on a whim not knowing anything and now I don't want to have to throw it away haha and yeah I've been looking at loads of set ups and DIY ones, I quite like the idea of making my own set up rather than buying the whole thing. I've already learned so much from the few days I've been on here. And yeah I saw someone on here mention that and didn't get what he meant til u used it in context there, cheers bro good luck with urs too

    How do brother from what i can see in your pics you already have new growth shooting from the lower nodes so can't see any problem hanging onto it for a wee while whilst you think over your options just don't over water or over feed it, you got a garage or shed you can make a grow room in ??? whatever you decide i wish you well brother, all the best, G'.

    I'm also in Scotland and my mate has 7 Exo cheese going outdoors. He vegged them indoors under LEDs, hardened them off and they've been outdoors for the last 7 weeks or so? With the cracking Summer, they've exploded. Only issue was pests which it looks like he now has a handle on. He may still have to finish them off indoors, weather depending...

    Point is, you can grow a crop outdoors, even in Scotland! Doesn't mean it'll be possible every year though! Haha 😂
