I Need help Please

Thread starter #1
Hi please I need some help with my growing. I'm trying to post a pic and ask some questions to more experienced growers.


I got 2 seeds out from a bud I bought both germinated but only one survived. I didn't have lights or any care really but she was always so strong and is surviving well today I bought some lights (she was just getting light from my window before) the plant is maybe 3 weeks old but the leaves look weird just 3. What do you know about this plant? Is it a female? Also it has a little burn I think is because I added some food. I think the color is off maybe to light? Is the first two baby leaves too far away from the soil? should i cover the steam more? Any idea of what kind this plant is?

I'm sending you a pic of my baby. If you know anything about it let me know.

Thank you in advance,

Victoria



Ps. I added plant light and the color is changing is getting darker and stronger i will upload pics soon.

Hi Victoria and welcome to :420: :welcome:

Unfortunately 'hotlinking' to offsite images isn't allowed. Take a look at New Member Start Links and the sections on posting pictures using the gallery. It's a two step process: you select the pictures and upload, but when that finishes you also have to press the "process" button. Once the pictures are in the gallery you can add them into a post using the camera icon on the editor.

Once you are able to post some pics we'll be able to offer advice :)

:Namaste:

Put lights closer. The height you see is called stretch. You want a closer distance between nodes at this point. 1.5-3cm between light and leaves is good.

It's too early to tell if it's male or female. And we will need close pictures of nodes in the future to tell.
It will be impossible to tell what strain it is. There are probably hundreds of thousands of strains, all with similar characteristics. The best we'll be able to tell is Sativa or Indica dominant.

If you see any signs of nute burn (looks like brown tips) back off the amount of nutes you're using.

You will want more lights later. You are using approximate two 23w bulbs. Don't use the equivalent number. That's only to help people replaace an incandescent bulb with an energy saving CFL bulb. Incandescent bulbs cannot effectively grow Cannabis, so that number is useless to us. Only use the actual wattage number.

I suggest 100 watts per plant in Veg as a MINIMUM. And 150 watts in Flower as a MINIMUM.

Yes you can spray the leaves. Do not spray when you are in flower though. It will cause bud rot.

I suggest a transplant into the final pot as soon as possible. 3 gallon/12 liter is the minimum size I would suggest using. Optimum size is 5 gallon 20 liter.

What are these plant grow bulbs you are using?

By keeping the bulbs close, you will get a plant that grows shorter like this:
 
ok Thank you. I was just about to water it more.
You can judge when to water based on the change in weight of the plant.

Can i just spray the leaves tho?
You shouldn't have to at this point, foliar feeding is at best a once a week thing.

Do you know anything about this plant?
No

is it a female or male?
There is no way to tell at this point, even seeds that are feminized can produce a male on occasion.

If you don't know we certainly don't know, call it "bag seed plant no.:1" until you have it grown out a bit more.

sorry im a hookie by chance :)
We all are, don't worry

I know i have to change the soil too
Not exactly, transplanting does not include changing the soil, it is more an addition of soil and a larger home. It is time to transplant when you can flip the plant and the current soil is bound together by roots.

but i just transfer it from scup to this gallon should i wait?
Use a process like I mentioned above to determine when to transplant. The process becomes your guide. For example in the process I mentioned above you would not transplant if the soil is not being held together by roots, and you would if the soil is being held together.

With some time you will get an idea of how often you should check and when to expect the transplant will need to happen.
