OK. So this is my first grow. I'm looking for advice, tips, help, and opinions. I have done a kit if research in the topic. Still all the help would be greatly appreciated.

Strain. Liberty Haze.
Genetics. G13×chemdawg 91
THC. 25% Cbd 1.8%

OK so I started out with MG soil. Figured out very fast that it was not good for the plant. Soil had time released nutes, not good for plant. So I had to transplant.
I went to a happy grow organic soil, mushroom compost soil, perlite, and ocean blue Pete moss.
1/2 happy grow
1/2 mushroom compost soil
1/3 perlite
1/3 ocean blue pete moss
5 gal pot.

Also have been using fish liquid 5-1-1 for right now. I do have more ferts coming. Want to bump up to a 5-3-3 or something like that. Help on this would be great. Gave her 3/4 strength ferts yesterday.

I have also been playing close attention to pH levels. My tap water is around 7.0- 8.5 . I have been adding I tbls of white vinegar to drop pH to 6.0- 6.8. Semms to b around 6.0 when drainage is done.

Notice yellow spots on leave today. You should be able to see it by the pic I posted. Have researched yelle leaves . Still not sure what it is. HELP.

I dont use vinegar every time. Its just helps in a pinch. One day I'll use it then I won't for the next few waters, just because I don't know that much about. Just read it doing research.

Here's the leaves. Now some are starting to curl up. Is this sign of heat stress been 90 and humid big change in temp over two days

Updated photo. Yesterday I noticed she was saggin a little. Think I over watered but we went from 75 degrees to 90 in a day. Big change. I also notice leaves were curling up. I researched and figured it was heat stress. Put her under the deck to shade her, plus there's a good breeze and sunlight still gets to her. I think she looks OK don't wanna water till tomorrow. Anyone got any suggestions.

I'm dealing with 88 degrees IN THE SHADE! But the humidity in the greenhouse keeps her basically wet so she doesn't ever have heat stress problems,

you could put your plant under a piece of plastic you have laying around it will cool down the direct temperature on the plant probably around 5-10 degrees, or if you can put in next to your a/c and the air movement from that should bring temps down as well,

it leans looking for sunlight, she wants some direct sun so she's searching for it

And honestly the plants looking a lot better than it was dunc014,

Re: First grow - Guidance Appreciated

So i received my new ferts today. I went with a 12-6-6 (npk) i also got humic acid. the guy at the hydro store talked me into it, and last but not least some worm casting for the top of the soil. I watered today with half the amount it called for. I will slightly increase it every water. Acid says use every ten days. I cant wait to see how she responds to the new stuff. Completely all organic ferts. Can anyone tell me if its ok to foiler feed in between feedings? thanks

Re: First grow - Guidance Appreciated

foliar feedings usually call for very low NPK, the fert i could use for foliar feeding once a week has an NPK of (0.01)(0.30)(0.70) but i dont foliar feed i just use water for misting in high temps

i dont have anything against foliar feeding, thats the great thing about cannabis... its all up to the grower
