    Re: biggreenbuds first grow !!!

    the setup is a cabinet that i built with a buddy - hieght is 2.5 feet depth is a 16 inches and its about 2 feet wide it had 4 60watt cfls in it with a computer fan blowing air into the box with an exaust on the other side of box.

    the strain is unknown bagseed i started with 3 plants one was male which i pulled the 2 remaining are female i believe one might be hermie im waiting to see exactly the plants veged for about 22 days and they are now on 12/12 which has been goin for 18 days

    the soil im using was dug up from my garden its just normal soil um i have no clue wut ph even is or how to check it and the nutrients im using are miracle grow all purpose i fed them once so far and it was 1/2 STRENGTH

    hows everything sounds so far ?

    Re: biggreenbuds first grow !!!

    shit dude those are hurtin. The difficulty with not knowing/following a nute regiment is discovering is your suffering from nute burn or a lack of nutes. Since you only used the miracle grow once the yellowing is most likely due to rootbound.

    The roots on the male means your ladies are rootbound and need to be transplanted to larger pots with more soil/room to grow in. If not the yellowing will continue to move up the plant wilting the leaves as it goes. Go out and buy one or two bags or organic potting soil, don't risk bugs/disease that will be in natural dirt from outside. It would be a shame to watch buggers devour your hard work.

    After the transplant you should also invest in a fertilizer that has a specified NPK value like 10-10-10 or something fairly even. Then begin feeding at half strength as often as she can take it. You'll probably want to play on the safe side to avoid burn.

    Ph is the measure of the acidity of your soil, like in chemistry. A low ph, (1) means the soil is too acidic. A high ph, (6.5 and up) means the soil is too alkaline. Marijuana thrives in levels between about 5.5 and 6.5.

    A final measure is don't overwater your plant. The soil should be good and dry (even 2-3 inches below surface) before each watering. I wait until my girls begin reaching for the rain (leaves lift upwards to funnel rain to the plant stem) before I water. Dry soil promotes root growth as they search for water.

    thanks potential



    my plants are 18 days into flowering can i still transplant them ?

    what if i took good soil and filled the pot the rest of the way ? the pots right now are only filled like half way

    what would you do ?

    could i put them outside ? in like a five gallon with good soil ? would they keep flowering ?

    Re: biggreenbuds first grow !!!

    Depends on the lighting in your area. You have to get online and check sunrise and sunset. You need that 12/12 lighting still!

    Transplanting in flowering is not ideal but you definitely need to do so right now. You need bigger pots (5gal is the most common, you can expect about a foot of height to a gallon) with loosely packed soil to allow the roots freedom.

    I'd put them in much larger pots with plenty of clean soil unless you mix in some perlite or vermaculite, if the budget allows. Keep them in a 12/12 light cycle and be careful with the watering. A transplant now may save them.

    Re: biggreenbuds first grow !!!

    Your medium is too wet, and that is the reason the plants are doing poorly. Using garden soil in pots can be a worry if you over water, as the roots drown, and the medium compacts. Try and go to a wet/dry cycle, and your plants will do fine.

    I don't see why you cannot take clones. It would sure speed up the process. Try and go wet/dry and finish out this grow. I don't see a need to repot/ Just poke a few holes in the medium with a chop stick lol. Get the air to the roots.

    Re: biggreenbuds first grow !!!

    what could you fit in the cabinet? Can you use square container or even doubled-up trash-bags in order to maximize space?

    You may get away with a clone from the top, maybe even topping the whole plant. You would need experience and the proper equipment in their condition. If you do decide to start over, try it anyway

    Transplant ASAP!
