Herbie's Strains: 2 pineapple express 1 green crack 1 gorilla glue 1 girl scout cookie 1 white widow x big bud

Soil: Fox Farm Ocean Forest

Buckets: 5 gallon

Lights: CFL and 4 Led panels 24 hour lighting

Water: Straight Tap Left out 72 hours

Im a new grower any help would be much appreciated. Let the games begin!!!

Nutes: None yet

germinated all seeds paper towel method 24 hrs and then into the dirt. Put my pop bottle domes on for humidity. 24 more hours in soil and they have all sprouted

Its day 31 for 4 of the plants in Fox Farm Ocean Forest Soil. The plants look good there getting a lot of new growth everyday. When should I start adding nutes Tiger Bloom or Big Bloom? Watched a Fox Farm video and they say wait 6 weeks. Then just add molasses and cal mag with no nutes the soil will do the rest. Autos have a 8 week span so do i buy nutes or just use cal mag and molasses? I am new to Autos so I don't want to burn them up

Day 34 Things are looking good going to start using tiger bloom and some cal mag on them next watering in very small amounts. Then ill increase in the 5th 7th and 8th week.

I do have one plant with some leaf curl. I've been watering every 3 to 4 days when the pots are dry so don't think its an over watering issue. Maybe when i get the cal mag and start nutes it'll work itself out. Does this look ok or is it a nutrient problem? Shes at 34 days but has had some leaf curl since germination. Its the one on the far left

4 of my plants are on day 38. I started using Flora Nova Nutes 2 days ago. Im growing in FFOF soil and one of my plants was showing a nutrient deficiency before the feeding. I know it says fox farm feeds for 30 days but i didn't think an auto flower in a 5 gallon bucket would be hungry this soon. I haven't done a ph test on my tap water yet that will be next if my pineapple express plant doesn't look better before next watering. If it was a PH problem would I see deficiency in other plants and would it have started a lot sooner then the 5th week? Hopefully the nutes solve my problem but we will see

Here's my plant that needs attention fed yesterday so we will see what new growth does. Hope its not a PH problem but I'll be checking that next if nutes don't resolve the issue

I'll back off the led panels up some I don't think the cfls would do that. Temps are good in there but if you think its light burn thats very possible. Leds are a pain to find the right distance to plants

Were at week 6 now on 4 of the plants the pineapple express that was light burned hasn't gotten any worse but i don't think I'll get a big yield off of it. Glad that I had started another one so I'll hopefully get one good pineapple out of this grow. They all seem to need feeding every 3 days or so. The two smallest in the pictures are the pineapple express and the green crack(started later then the rest). Overall I'm happy with the grow so far the white widow x big bud seems to have the most growth out of all of them so far. I have 6 more of the white widow seeds that I'm going to include in my 24 plant auto grow next month. The Girl Scout Cookie is taking second in size its the same height as the widow but not as many bud sites For my feed schedule I have been giving them 1 teaspoon of Floranova Bloom and 2 teaspoons of molasses per gallon. Can't wait till next grow to have my hps lights to see what these autos can truly do. I gave the plants some cameos outside of the grow area for pics
