    Default First grower, need bit help.

    Hi, I'm in my second week now and my plants looking very unhealthy to me, one is nearly dead already... I had my LEDS on at 40% which is somewhere around 400w. turned it down to 150-200 now thought this might have been issue.. Anyways il post some pictures maybe u can help me... I was feeding them first week with tap water only before I got my nutrients and pH tester.. Water was at 7.6ph.. Tnx in advance

    Hello buddy will help if you give a list of your set up ,temperatures,humidity what medium you're using all that sort of thing but if you are in soil you shouldn't need any nutrients for first few weeks depending what type it is hope that helps all the best

    Hi and thnx guys for answering so quick...

    I'm growing in coco premium, perlite mixed into coco separately..

    The temp varies, usually its around 18to 22, when the lights go off temp goes somewhere around 16, depends how cold outside.. I have 5x5 dent with filter and fan installed, but whenever I turn filter fan on the temp and humidy starts dropping.. lowest I show was 38 but kinda stable at 45 to 50, I only have the fan on few hours a day, plus the air fan inside the dent, I don't have intake air coming outside in... Before when I had lights at 400w the temp went up to 29 sometimes and was plus 25 regularly..... Soil is kinda wet looking ye, I'm only feeding them every 1 to2 days now... Lights are on 20 hrs. Everything is mixed into 10 lt bucket what I'm holding inside the dent for feeding . Hope that helps abit... Got few pictures of what in using...Click image for larger version.

    the bucket with feed in does it have airstones in?
    how old is it?

    reason I am asking is I had trouble the other day but when I was talking to trex he quickly identified it for me and said stagnant water can cause root damage.
    but I always get the bucket of water add stones leave it overnight add nutes etc the day after. leave few hrs ph adjust. couple of hours check ph then feed.

    theres one thing I would be careful of extraction is better running all the time you got to think about the smell when they are flowering.
    need to sort the temp etc with fan running to balance everything asap.

    as for the temps I got told 18 is the absolute lowest it should go and 29 the absolute highest.
    I have been lucky with my temps up to now.

    as for humidity might be best getting a humidifier can set the humidity digitally and it turns on and off as needed.
    they are not that expensive and some hold 5ltr which is good for few days

    I don't have anything to measure EC right now, water is ph-d to 5.8-6.2 .... I was watering them way too much first 2 weeks id say, I was feeding them nearly every day... Now I'm waiting to dry it up a bit before giving them anymore??
    3rd day now without feeding... How low the humidity can go without having affect on plants? There were huge humidity jumps first week too. Somewhere from 35 to 91 according to that gauge

    Well, no there is no stones in it, never heard about that method tbh. It's usually there 2 days as I'm feeding 5 plants from 10 lt bucket, not sure how good it is for water there to sit just like that? For the next 3 weeks I can't buy anymore equipment, this set up already cost me bout 2k lol I defo have to buy humidifier some day.. And 1 more question about the LIGHTS , I'm using SPLED G2 Series LEDs.. PPF 2320umols, when can I turn up the power, its running currently on minimum of 20% of capacity, its around 150 to 200 wwatts.. Tnx

    Hello buddy you really do need to get an EC pen as that is most likely your problem coco needs to be watered everyday for my what I remember and fed as it has no nutrients in But Wait for someone who knows properly as I use soil

    Yeah tnx m8, that martini is available in my local shop, 60e not 2 bad, gonna have to get that soon...

    How do you guys feed ur autoplants in coco premium first 3 weeks? How much food will you give them at the time, just spray top layer wet or u pour a bottle in str8?

    It seems that the one u had with burned leafs came back alive and should I remove these leafs at tht early stage? I also flushed that plant with plenty of PhD water and it kind a looks the best out of 5 now, should I do with all of hem like that just in case if I messed up giving them too much feed at so early stage?

    M8 growing weed comes down to simple stages that are made more difficult by the more you learn, basically give them enough light and water they will do the rest, all we do is help improve yield etc..maybe i am judging you by what i did with my 1st grow(i am still a n00b), i have done about 5-6 with them all get better(except last), btw why turn ur lights down? if i was you and ur not sure..bin them and start again, follow a simple guide, dont over water and leave the lights as they are..to avoid over watering make sure there are plenty holes in the bottom of your pots, once thety start to grow i do, day 1 water, day 2 water with nutrients(plant magic old timers for me), day 3 dry then repeat day1 :P my 2 cents..Good luck m8.

    Reason was the plant as I posted above picture, leaves looked like they were burned?? One guy told me to turn power down for first few weeks and then move up gradually... So when is the right time to turn them on full blast 100%, its about 1000w very high PPF, I was running them before at 40% in second week which is somewhere around 400w... Well there's room for one grow only atm there is no backing down no matter what lol thanks mate for good info
