New light above the girls, I'm in love! Such a nice bright white light let's see how they react! Added in some pics for fun as well :)

These little girls are now at 15 days above soil, GG#4 must be a resilient strain that I've managed to get all 5 this far haha

The two below are pictures of plants I seeded a few days before as dummy runners to kind of test things on and see how they do

Seem to be doing alright

Day 17 above soil
(how many days of veg would this be considered? 17?)

Topped all the gg#4 girls last night. Really hoping I did it correctly. I'll be going away for 6 days and won't be able to check on them until I come back.

Have left them on and 18/6 light schedule and gave a good feeding today hoping that it will last all 6 days, been going 5 days before watering at the moment so holding thumbs that this will be alright.

Room temp is at 23,5 degrees celcius and RH is at 62%

Really nervous for this week away but hopefully I've set them up with some good growning conditions and when I get back it's not to late to try starting some lst.

So I get back today to my plants looking extremely sad, it's actually heartbreaking. Cooling system seemed to have stopped working for some reason or other and I'm guessing the Temps sat around 33 degree celcius (95 Fahrenheit) and the RH was at 15% when I walked into the tent. Everything just went to shit while I was away.

I've started cooling the room down and gave the girls a drink of plain water to hopefully try and save them. Really hoping they not to far gone now

@Lerugged @Emilya @Hydroholic @SmokeSara

Maybe someone can give me a hand at identifying what the issue is? Maybe I overwatered before leaving for holiday?

2 days later and the girls are still looking sick :(

Although the two plants that were planted 2 weeks before are looking alright.

Really not to sure what's going on here. The only thing I have done differently is use a different soil and I'm beginning to wonder if that's not the cause for the stress?

Or would the older plants have been able to handle the heat better?

Day 25 above soil

So after the stress these girls went through of high heat, low humidity and I'm pretty sure I Over watered them even after reading @Emilya post on watering proper plants.

Rookie error that could have been avoided if I hadn't gone away for those few days over christmas

But I took advice given to me by @Pennywise and the gg#4 girls seem to be pulling through.

What I did....

1. Left them alone for 3 days
2. Put a fan on directed straight at them in order to try and dry out the soil
3. Got my RH and temp in the room RH is now in between 50 and 60 percent and the temp is around 74f
4. Removed any leaves that were badly damaged or completely shriveled yesterday

Now I'm not sure if this was the correct approach to take although it does seem to have helped them a bit and I've started seeing some new growth although they will probably be stunted.. I'm actually not sure ( have no idea)

BBelow are pictures of the little girls after a week at war

Hoping they will start to make a recovery now and start blossoming :)

Now these next to plants were my testers... I figured I may as well add them because they are part of my first grow...

Royal queen seed royal highness fem

This one I let go and tried my hand and topping and think I fimmed her by mistake but oh well she seems to be growing alright

Now this one all I know is it's a regular afghani roadkill and I tried my hand at topping and training it... Seems to be doing alright. But I'm not too sure where to go from here... Do I let it just grow out or give a go at a scrog? Being my first grow I'm leaning towards just letting it bush out but I'm not sure?

Sorry for the long and boring post

So today during inspection I found these little shits in my soil and would really like some help trying to identify them. They are only in the soil and not around the plant or leaf at all. I don't see damage to the leaves or stem as of yet but I'm worried they are some sort of larvae or root killing little bastards...

If anybody can help me identify them I would greatly appreciate that. I've researched everything I can and I'm at a loss.

They don't look like spider mites, aphids or white fly so I'm really stuck

Hmm not sure. Possibly fungus gnats larvae? Root aphids?
Other than that let them dry a bit . If fungus gnats you will see the adults soon enough. Then some peroxide in water and that will finish them off.

Looking ok for now. Just gotta let them do their thing now without too much meddling .
Cheers Rhys and happy New year's.
