I’m a first time grower from aus I thought I would start s journal of my first grow as I could use some expert advise being my first grow.

Details as follows

Strain: northern lights
Indica/sativa: mostly indica I believe
Vegetive stage

How long: 35 days since seedlings emerged so probably just over a week in veg now

Indoor hydro
Medium: coco coir with a layer of expanded clay top and bottom

I’m using 2x 45 litre grow tubs stacked one on the other with a 65 litre res outside of tent.

Light: 600watt hps with adjustable digital ballast (currently only running at 400 watts) currently without an air cooled shade.

Temps
max 24 degrees Celsius
Min 15 degrees Celsius

Humidity
Max 45 percent
Min 29 percent

Ph res 6.3

No pests that I know of

Watering: seem to be having trouble with overwatering and nutrient deficiency/toxicity I think

Am using professors nutrients a and b with some go roots go green additives mixed to 2.0 ec
Currently have 3 plants in the tent with two going outside soon.

I think that about sums it up I have attached some photos of the grow up until now.

Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated

Cheers

Edit tent is 1.2m x 1.2m x 2m heigh

Hey mate that big one looks really nice! The smaller ones with the yellowing looks similar to what I've been dealing with. The over-watering could be causing root issues which in turn cause nutrient issues, let them dry out and then give them a little extra feed next water only if the yellowing shows on the new growth. I haven't used coco before but I'm sure the translation from top-drip/LWC systems can apply to what you're experiencing. Hope this helps :thumb:
