What strain is it- ICE by Nirvana
Is it Indica, Sativa or Hybrid? Through an intensive process of selection among thousands of plants, we managed to create Ice, a perfect union of quantity and quality. With its ancestry of Afghan, Shiva, Northern Light and a very special Skunk, Ice is a truly spectacular hybrid. Its dense flowers are richly covered in trichomes and the buds that form along the main branches have a high flower-to-leaf ratio. Ice will flourish in both hydro and soil environments. With its heavy stone effect and almost fuel-like aroma, it's no wonder Ice won the 1998 Cannabis Cup (?) hands down.

Is it in Veg or Flower stage? Currently In veg stage
If in Veg... For how long? 2 weeks Tallest plants about 1ft 1/2
If in Flower stage... For how long? N/A
Indoor or outdoor? Indoor Grow
Soil or Hydro? Soil
If soil... what is in your mix? “Happy Frog” by Fox Farm
If soil... What size pot? 7 Gallon Pots
Size of light? 1 2x4FT T5 In addition i built a 4 bulb CFL Fixture for my 5 feminized seeds
Is it air-cooled? Just with small desk fans
Temp of Room/cab? Temp usually aroun 76% Highest was 85 degrees.
RH of Room/cab? 45%
PH of media or res? Well I’ve had some issues trying to do the PH thing, this is my first grow, and i think I’ve had some nutrient burn issues because of this; I know its supposed to be around 5.5- 6.5 but its been difficult for me to monitor this with 13 plants.
Any Pests ? Yes 2 cats, but they are not allowed in grow room
How often are you watering? Every other day
Type and strength of ferts used? Fox Farms BIG BLOOM, GROW BIG, and (TIGER BLOOM) for flowering. I’ve had issues with these nutes too. This is how i think i burnt them

Bucket Size - 7 gallon
Medium - Happy Frog - Recently Flushed my medium because of the nutrient burn ( my plants started getting small burn marks, and some leafs were twisting up and they were clawing really bad! Which i think is nitrogen Toxicity
Lights - (1) T5 & 4 CFLS
Nutrients - FOX FARMS GROW BIG, BIG BLOOM, TIGER BLOOM , EPSOM SALTS, AND CAL-MAG however i have no idea how I’m supposed to feed this to them because last time i tried they were burnt really bad! Please help

As you can probably tell I’ve had some problems with my grow; The issue was receiving “DIFFERNT” advice from So many different people, and they all had something different for me to do; This is my very first grow ever; And people assume if your a new grower that you understand certain terminology like “Feeding your plants” Im still trying to learn how to “FEED MY PLANTS”

I’ve purhcased the Fox farm line of nutrients because thats what i was told to buy, in addition the soil I’m using is Happy frog; I think i’ve got Nutrient Burns , at first i was having HEAT issues, and i was told that they were MITES< So i went out and purchased “DR DOOM” pest spray, and i found out it had nothing to do with mites.

SO then i was told they had a nitrogen difencey and that “ELPSOM SALT” and CAL MAG would cure it, well i used both those products and seemed to get worse.

I still don’t really know how to correctly check my PH levels. I was told 7.0 Is Neutral and thats where its supposed to be, but then i read online that 5.5-6.5 is ideal for plant growth, but thats partly in the red and acidic and I’m not sure if my plants with (NUTE BURNS) should be in the ACIDIC area of PH... PLEASE HELP ME!

SO recently I’ve flushed my plants- I’ve got 13 total. Im not sure i flushed them correctly, i started out using PH’d Water at 6.2 in the yellow, but then i figured because my acid levels were so high i figured i would just use the regular tap water which is around 7.0 in the green so i just poured on the water through them ... They seemed to perk right up after i flushed them, but I’m a bit concerned because some of the newer growth leaves are coming in deformed as well!

I don’t know what to do and I’m getting frustrated because a couple of my plants are starting to look fucked up!

Please help
