As the title says, can anyone help a noob shed light on some issues with my girls? I'm obviously doing something wrong and I don't know what or how to fix it. Today is day 13 and there has been zero growth in almost a week, something is burning the 1st set of true leaves in my girl on the left. I thought it might have been heat stress so I moved the lights up but the burn is still spreading. Anyhoo, here's my spec and what I've done to date: If you need any more info, please ask and thanks for reading!
- Set up:
300w Dual spec CFL and reflector hood
Mylar coating in closet
2 x Nirvana Bubblicious auto seeds
Biobizz Light soil - approx 75-80%
Perlite - approx 20-25%
Nutes: Biobizz Grow & Biobizz Bloom
Tap water - left sitting out for 24+ hours, ph checked with test indicator drops, ph reduced using trace amounts of vinegar, though admittedly I didn't start doing this till day 7.
Day 0: Germ in paper towel
Day 2: Seeds popped, transplanted to small pots and added water but did not flush soil beforehand (rookie mistake!)
Day 3: Watered approx 20-30mls each
Day 4: Both girls broke ground overnight. Watered approx 40-50mls each.
Day 6: First set of true leaves appear. Watered approx 30-40mls each.
Day 7: Ph too high, adjusted with vinegar.
Day 8: Second set of true leaves start to appear.
Day 9: Pots felt very light, added approx 100mls water to each pot.
Day 11: Second set of true leaves standing vertical like a V on both plants. Signs of burn developed on one plant. Added 1/4ml BioGrow to approx approx 170mls water and split between both plants in case of phosphorus deficiency, some foliar feeding. CFL raised to approx 3-4 inches above girls. Periodically placed a fan on them throughout the day.
Day 12: Growth on both plants stunted, no new growth since day 8. Burn getting worse on one plant, progressed to a second leaf as the day continued. Sign of nute burn on a 2nd true leaf tip in the other plant. Flushed both pots in the PM with a pint of water each. Periodically placed a fan on them throughout the day. Both plants still have vertical 2nd true leaves, but they fanned open somewhat.
Day 13: Burn on Plant A getting progressively worse on both leaves, half of one leaf is crispy! No advance of nute burn on the Plant B. No new growth on either girl. Second leaves still vertical.
