    Default First grow ever need assistance

    Hi guys,

    Being my first attempt, i have some concerns / doubts and may need some guidance

    I have some autos and some photoperiodic in the same room and light regime (20x4). Im using a cheap 600W LED, but im about to switch to 1000W.
    My first question is: Being 20x4 instead of 18x6, could that stress the photoperiodic?
    The idea is to veg the photoperiodics until the autos are ready, then switch to 12x12. Could that work?

    Also, i do have an unknown seed (pics attached), which i got from a bud, and planted it.
    And might seems to be a fem, but im not sure. Can anyone confirm?
    Pistils are already brown, like dying, dont know why.
    I used fertilizer once, and it shows signs of nutrients excess (i guess, not sure), but since then i only use water to try to wash the substratum.
    Also, this plant seems to have substratum flies, because i used the substratum available at that time. I've bought neem and using it, without any effect so far but im aware neem is not that fast.
    I dont want to compromise the entire room just for an unknown seed, but also i dont want to destroy the plant just because...

    Cheers

    I can't say that I care for the look of that soil... what is it?

    I'm still a novice, but I know that the 20-4 light schedule shouldn't matter at all!

    Have you been messing about with the light schedule?

    Strange that its a bag seed and most likely a photo plant, yet its trying to flower!
    Have you switched the light schedule on it!

    You do realise that autos can take a little while longer then what it says on the pack.
    Hope you have the room to keep on vegging a photo because once she starts to flower you need to think about the growth of a possible 3 x the size that she was when flipped!

    I dont see much nutrient burn? But she looks like she's hungry for some nitrogen (i could be very wrong but I think when they yellow from bottom up they need nitrogen)

    Take what I've said with a pinch of salt until one of the more experienced growers pop up! Like I say I'm still a novice and only on my second grow!

    YouTube and Google are always your friend too But some of the fellahs on here are a fountain of knowledge
    Best of luck with the grow!

    Almost looks like dry crushed up bark

    Hi guys
    The soil is not very good, its fertilized soil mixed with some compost, but as this was a test, i didnt had at that time better substratum so i used it.
    For all the seeds i bought, i used better soil.

    This plant came after i installed my indoor, so actually i did changed the light schedule. It was before on sunlight having less hours than it has now.
    What should i do next?
    Are you guys positive it started to flower? In that case, should i change it to 12x12? Its still very small so i wont expect much yield.

    I don't know if it started to flower yet or not but it will revert
    back to veg with the increased light.

    Thank you guys.
    BTW, one of the autos (kannabia mikromachine) is showing a stunted grow, and a weird shape. It has the same soil, light , water regime and conditions as the other, but this one is so tiny... I did nothing different on this one.
    It doesnt even look like weed. Click image for larger version.

    It looks like your soil is to hot for this one.
