    Hi guys. I'm still on the veg stage (46 days in total now) and did not started to nute my plant. I do want to keep her in veg stage and let other 3 plants to catch up as they are 3 weeks behind the schedule and i have only one tent I wonder if this is ok for a plant to stay in veg stage this long? And do i need to replant her to a bigger bucket (she is in 3l bucket now). Plant gets really hungry - i water her every 2nd day with water and she looks very healthy. If i will switch the time to 12/12 i will force other 3 plants to go to flower stage (they are about 3 weeks young).

    Get up some pics mate
    If and when you do I will ask my good buddy Sadface to chip in as he smashes photos out lol. I understand as much about photos as I do women

    Your soil has enough nutes in it "for six weeks". I am not entirely convinced that she needs feeding just yet. Feeding her is not going to make her grow faster if other parameters are not in sync. Post some pictures up like Gaz said. Because plants are biological beings, their needs differ. Just because on the calendar it says Day 46, the soil may not necessarily be depleated. Get some photos up.

    Yes, you can let them all stay in veg and let the other plants to catch up. In the mean time you can swot up on topping, and LST and other training methods to keep your older plant in a controllable size. Afterall they easily DOUBLE (or more) in size when they go into flower.

    Thirsty, or hungry? Big difference, mate. Big difference.

    What you'll find with pot size is that plants get ROUGHLY SPEAKING a bit wider than the pot's width and a bit taller than the pot is tall. So the answer to your question is, how big is your tent? Is your ventilation and lighting appropriate for that tent size? How much height do you have, i.e. between the top of the pot and the bottom of them lamp?

    Switching to 12/12 for the other 3 will not force them into flower as they are not sexually mature yet. Reducing their illuminated hours will not switch them into flower, but they may grow to be lankier and ultimately reduce yield.

    Mate, get a diary up, log your temperatures, humidity, amounts of water given to the plants, nutrients used, if any.

    At the end of the day, they are yor plants. If you rush in with nutrients and burn them, no offence but it is not anyone else's problem but yours. We here will feel for you, but live and learn. No smell, no tell, no sell.
    Fight for your health.
    Hug those who care about you, do all you can for those you love (if they want it). We just never know when it might be the last time we talk to them or see them.

    Since you are so chomping at the bit ready to go, go here for some grow books. Read them, remember what they teach. They hold answers to a lot oif grow questions.

    My favourite on is The Cannabis Grow Bible, but any Jorge Cervantes books would be brilliant as well.

    Thank you Valentina, i really appreciate your help!
    My plant is in the 7th week of growing. I have planted her on 1st of Aug after about a week of germination.
    I have cut her top once and now i have 2 tops, and i also splitted all side branches, so now i have 8 side branches and 2 tops.
    My tent is 80x80x160, so i guess this should be enough space to go up. I can still lift all of my lamps up. And the bucket i've planted her is 5l, so i guess this should be enough.
    Speaking of thirsty and hungry - i can clearly say when it is thirsty, but how do i recognize when it is hungry?

    Your plant is absolutely thriving, just keep on giving it water.

    When the lower leaves start to pale a little, look a bit miserable, post pictures.

    Giving it nutes now would be as good as nuking her.

    Sort yourself out with a hygrometer, one of those thermometer and humidity meters if you don't already have one.

    Get on with those books. The likes of Ed Rosenthal or Jorges Cerventes can answer your questions better than most of us here. Just read their books. Honest.

    Thank you Valentina. I'm reading the cannabis grow bible now. It is extremely useful book. I find a lot of information there.

    Hi guys. My plant is still in veg stage and two days ago i've noticed some yellow tips on her. I thought it has something to do with burning, so i lifted my lamps, but today i found more and more tips are getting yellow. The soil is not too wet and i am not ower watering her. Do i think correct that my plant is getting hungry?

    What have you fed her ?

    if nothing then dont worry they do that if they in good rich soil. They can ever so slightly over feed em selves but it never gets worse than that.

    Mate, you've got a while to go before you need to feed. If anything, you might want some "P/K" in your arsenal for later on. "P/K" is a Phosphorous & Potassium mixture. Most grow shops should have some version of it.



    The circled parts are the "elongated tips", which is a dead giveaway sign for excess nitrogen. I think she is on the brink of getting nute burn.

    I do not give any of nutes since the last time i got into trouble (about 3-4 weeks ago). I only feed her with tap water. The only thing i did is i added extra soil (same compost with perlite) to the bucket as it was a little too low. Is it possible that plant reacted to this? As this compost has all the necessary grow additives?
    The other 3 plants look perfect btw. They nearly reached the same height as this one. I'm just waiting until they will start forming nodes and i will switch to 12/12 all of them as now i am a bit anxious to do that, not to turn these youngsters into hermies.

    Yeah back fill causes the gentle overfeed mate but its no drama at all ignore them tips mate this isnt bottled nute damage just a greedy plant , I have one as I showed you and I don't own a bottle of anything and that soil is 8 months old and amended by me.

    Cant help with 12/12 as I only know autoflower growing

    Hello growers. Could you please help me. I think i have a problem. I spoted some signs on the leaves and it got my attention. I took a closer look and found a little white worm eating my plants. (Attached images). I got a bottle of NeemAzal that is suitable for cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers and other vegies. Question is, should i use it?
