get rid of that paper towel under your pots , that is a no no it holds moisture and bacteria , get some plant elevators so the bottom of your plants pots can drain and dry out also they are plastic , strong and cheap and come in different sizes depending on the pot size being used , the big A has them i use the 16 inch for 10 gallon pots and 14 inch for 5 gallon pots , i wash them between each grow
Yea they are gone pot is elevated now

Checked on her this morning she is very perky after the feeding. I will get a better picture out of the tent once I get my caffeine in me. @Emilya do you think I should cut the two lower fan leaves off that are really yellow?
no, because if the plant is still needing more nutrient that it can't yet get, it will then rob it from the next leaves up the trunk. Let the plant remove the leaf when it is ready.

My lady is looking pretty good today real perky and it seems as if some of the yellow is lessening on the tips of the new growth. She defiantly took on more height too. My smart pot is elevated off the ground so any moisture can drain. The bottom of the pot is still real wet after giving it a gallon feeding Tuesday. Is that normal? Anyway here are some updated pics

Good morning fellow friends my lady is looking very good today with the yellowing leaf tips almost gone except for the lower leafs. She still doesn’t need any more water as there is still a lot of weight and bottom of smart pot is still wet. But otherwise she really is putting the growth on now almost 3 inches of height gains this week. I will veg until plant is 15-18” tall she currently is at 9 inches. Thanks for stopping by and any advice or tips is always greatly appreciated!

yep, that reaching up with all leaves like that is the sign of a very healthy plant... great job!
Couldn’t have done it without your guidance. I kind of wish I had waited one more week to up pot though I didn’t have to many roots showing when I transplanted hopefully they will be happy with my feeding and grow faster

New day new growth she defiantly put on some more width and height over night. Still showing signs that the soil is still damp from feeding Tuesday night. It’s so weird waiting this long to water but I’m letting the plant tell me when she is ready. I will probably start lst tomorrow or Monday.

Little update from today. She is looking happy and more growth added on overnight. I can feel the pot starting to get lighter and the bottom of the pot is no longer damp. I will probably hold off on watering another day or two just to be safe and wait for a sign she is thirsty. Next watering will be just plain ph water unless you folks think I should give another feed of nutes. Have a great day

the top growth shows a slight bit of tip burn that shows you gave what was needed plus just a little bit extra, just where you want to be for strong growth. That little bit extra is still in the soil, and your pH adjusted water will keep it active and the plant will love it. feed/water/feed/water... it really does work, and the plants are not starving on that water only pass because of soil's ability to temporarily store nutes. They will be fine... don't start second guessing now! :)

@Emilya was just curious what light do you run for bloom? I’ve been doing a lot of reading on lights the past few days and I believe I am strongly underpowered in that department with my light only pulling 256 true watts and my big tent is 32x60x80 dimensions. I don’t want to lose out potential yield and density because of lights but I also want something economical and led since I’m not really in a friendly place.

I have a large 12x6 bloom room, so I have a NextLight Mega covering 5x5 of that and a MarsHydro SP-3000 covering another 5x2 area. My true draw is about 900w with these two lights.

Do you think the sp3000 would be a good fit for my tent? Since I’m almost 3x5

The one thing that truly amazes me is just like clockwork an hour before lights out my girl starts to droop I know it’s natural just fascinates me their internal clock knowing lights are almost done for the day

I do! It seems to be a very excellent light, but maybe @SmokeSara can recommend to you a model that would more directly fit your 3x5 area. She is very helpful and there is also a discount available to members of this forum.

Thankyou hopefully she will chime in I really want this one to go successful I got plenty of time to purchase light since it’s a photo period seed. I just want some northern lights in my life since no dispensaries around here have it

I am sure she will show up soon... but be patient because I think she is on the other side of the world and her daylight is our night time and all that.
