    Welcome to the 420 Family Nice clean set up, and them ladies are very healthy to boot. Its nice to see some Auto strains going, especially if they have been D.C'ed. That way if, and I'm sure they will, come out nice and sticky icky icky, we can demand them back.. Anyhow welcome and I'll be one to be sure to fallow along.

    @Butcher Thanks, I hope they do come out sticky icky icky
    I have a question, i say i have a little over 3 1/2 gallons in the 5 gallon bucket and i started with 2 tsp per gallon today I put 3 tsp of ffgbh and 3tsp FFBB per gallon its only been like 3 or 4 hours and i already started to see some yellow spots forming on the top leaves. I am going to change the water again and going back down to 2 tsp of FFGBH and FFBB per gallon, I hope its ok to do that. Well we will see in the morning if any more spots form.

    @reefertwin I sure do hope so

    Your going to want to slowly up the nutes. I would definitely back off, then once you've seen that they are doing fine, thats the time to up it a bit. the key to growing canna is to keep them going, then up the nutes when they are nice and healthy. What happens is growers think that if they can take a high ppm/EC that it will help them be as potent as they can be. This is not true, you don't really want to push the nutes hard till the last few weeks of flowering. Remember that plants store away nutes and disregard what they don't need. I keep an average amount of nutrients till week 4-5 of an 8 week strain, then up the nutes 33% each week till I see a burn. At that point I stop right there and keep it there till flush. I hop this helps out, let me know if you need any more info on my thoughts. Sometimes the Canna gets me rambling to much

    a sure way of watering them is to learn the weight of the container before a good watering and post watering. You can get a scale and weight it. Or you can just use your best guess by weighing it with your hands. Another way is to dig your finger about an inch into the top soil. if its dry then time to water, if you feel moisture then your good for another day or two.

    I suggest waiting. Most soils have trace amount of nutrients to help get your seedlings started.

    When you do start, be sure to start off at a 1/4 strength nutrients.

    Doing so will get your young ones use to getting fed nutrients.

    I will wait till like the third or fourth week to give them nutes. I changed my lights over to the 250 10k MH and the plants seem to be liking the new light. the temps only raised 3* from what they were before. Again i would like to for your help.
