Newbie Growing: What Have I Done!

Good morning people, gather round,
To hear some very awkward sounds,
Not of mundane noise and some,
But more like "S**t, what have I done"?
And "it seemed a good idea in my head",
Now all these little s**ts are dead,
I have a mix of strains you see,
Growing under the same LED,
Some are big, some are small,
Some just haven't grown at all,
All these books and vids I watched,
That if I follwed I will have botched
This little crop I'm trying to grow
To help my meds count drop to low,
So here's a lowdown of my crop
And hope my touch of death will stop
I have a medikit that's looking well
And cbd critical mass to tell
Ice breaker too, and northern lights
But that one now is looking sh**e
Is hanging on but almost dead
So germed another one instead
CBD auto compassion lime
I germed 2 as they sound fine
An Auto sour diesel too
Completes the line up in my room
Now I know why many pro's
Choose a single strain to grow
So hopefully, if it's okay,
I'll need some help along the way,
And so far the best advice I've seen
Is here, on 420 magazine.
I'll start by posting pictures soon
Of burnt up tips (too close to the moon?)
Already had a bit of help
Which puts confidence in myself
So thank you loads, Pennywise,
you've saved them from a slow demise
I'll try and keep this up to date
with all wrongdoings and mistakes
that I'm surely bound to do
because I'm brand spanking new,
so thank you all for getting this far
sorry you had to press space bar
I know its rather long (she said :p )
But winged this off from in my head,
And hopefully, in 12 weeks time
I'll have some bud to call all mine
And then can process it to oil
A process I don't want to spoil
And hopefully in testing time
THC & CBD's high
Then I only need a drop
To stop my spasming a lot
So that's my plan and sticking to,
And hope some here will help me through
To be a mentor and a friend
To help me grow them to the end!!

I hope to speak to many of you guys soon, will post latest pics tonight :)

I forgot I have some pictures on this phone already!! These are from last night, the mass has severe tip burn so halved the nutes for yesterday's feed, the medikit is growing but staying very short, the ice breaker is growing tall, looking much better than last week though, the scraggly thing is northern lights, is really bad, I'm throwing it if it doesn't perk up tonight as it's been 4 days like it. The seedlings germed 3 days ago and are looking healthy, I have them under a 35w 15cm cfl bulb and have put a clear plastic cup, with holes in and sprayed with water, over each one to keep humidity high, have fan gently blowing into the holes too. Everything is in coco and 20% approx. perlite. On the plants under the LEDs I'm using 3 root boosters, silica & cal mag for now at 190ppm, temp stays between 75 & 80, R/H is a nightmare, have to keep checking every few hours, opening tent more when it's over 80% and then closing when down to 50%, keeping it in check, will be glad when they're older and can reduce the humidity, but plodding along okay for now. Still waiting for my bottles of ph up and down! Has been a PITA using lemon juice and more r/o water to ph it accurately, will be much better when it arrives, hopefully today!

So my little ones are growing fast. They only popped their heads up yesterday morning. Can somebody please tell me if the bulb is ok in this position? It's not exactly directly above them, but as you can see is more high in between them, is it ok that theya angle a little bit like this or shall I just keep turning them so that they turn back towards the light?

Thanks :) I have another image of them this morning, it seems that the growth is going really slowly, they haven't really grown much the last week, is it maybe due to the immensely burnt leaves? I did flush them and the next day gave them half the nutes that caused the damage, so might check and see if any changes tomorrow. I have a 415 watt(actual power) led in there, with both vag and bloom lights on, they were 20 inches away but have moved them 2 inches higher to see if it'll encourage it to grow. Fed them on Sunday so will feed them again today.

I am far from an expert, and grow in soil, so wouldn't dream of commenting on nutes or watering.

I'm wondering if your lights might be a bit much at the moment? 415w from the wall would be an awful lot of light, don't think they'd be any harm dropping back to just veg lights for a while. Break them in gentle so to speak.

Hopefully someone else will jump in here to confirm my thought, or tell us that it doesn't apply to coco. :)

Either way this post'll give your thread a bump.;)

I do know plants can take a shit load of abuse and bounce back, sometimes even stronger.

:Namaste:

So........ after looking at my biggest plant and wondering why the nodes are almost on top of each other, I checked the manufacturers recommendation for the LED height...I think the problem has presented itself! The light should be 32" away during veg, where I had it at 22", so will hopefully see them forming and growing a little better now I've raised it up. These are my 4 day old seedlings, looking great and healthy! Will leave them a few more days and then pop them into the tent under the main light :) As for the runt, well, she's in heaven now :rip: growing close to God :laugh:

Coco holds a lot of oxygen even when saturated, always treat coco as a form of hydroponics. With hydro feed daily with reduced nutrients as compared to soil. I rarely go over half of the manufactures recommendation.

Damn man, nice rhymes. I love it, you must have spent a long time writing that *applause*

When using coco you have to water much more often (each day and even twice a day later in the grow), with much lower nutrient levels (as Pennywise said). @Asesino85 also has a lot of experience with coco and understanding of nutrients. Here he explains how to figure out how much nutrients to use and here is his nutrient schedule. I highly recommend that you read these posts, they helped me so much with understanding nutrients! And now I can even figure out my own N-P-K instead of using the manufacturers recommendations, which are WAY high.

I'll be following your grow, hope the best for you! :goodluck:

Hi HereToLearn, nah it took me about 20 minutes, lol, wrote it in bed off the top of my head (that wasn't supposed to rhyme as well though :D) so just wrote it as I thought it :)

Thank you so much for those links mate! They'll really help me out! Having a few problems at the moment especially with my CBD mass, as you can see, the leaves are burning up like crazy! Dropped it to 170ppm but may have to drop even lower after seeing them this morning, although ice breaker seems to be okay and like it, maybe because it's sativa and will grow taller perhaps?? Will have a good look at these links right now, never a bad time in the day to start learning. :reading420magazine::thumb:
