NYGC Coco: Barney's farm &Seedsman grow
Send help plz! Lol why are my plants still so small?I should have been flipping by now but I was just able to lst them, let alone flip. Temp around 75-80f , 60-65%rh, ph is between 5.6-6.3, ppms around 850, water every couple days till 20% runoff, General hydroponics flora series plus all the additives, coco pearlite and rice hulls for medium, lux is between 35,000-45,000 but its taken a while to get them there without them trying to taco. I seriously don't know what I'm doing wrong. The only thing I can think of is when planting in the buffered coco maybe I need to let it dry more first bc the first 2 weeks the pots didn't even need watered. Hell idk.. Anyone else have a clue what is wrong bc I surely don't.
Just an update on my way late to flip photos. Lol. Their just not ready yet but I've been working on low stress training and a light defol just leaves touching the pot,coco or over future bud sites. I checked runoff ppms jic and everything looks good. About to give them a good feed now as they are starting to pick up and there's a slight yellowing on new growth. I know that's normal when they are starting to grow faster but I also increased my light recently so I want to be sure they have enough nutes to keep up their growth. Not increasing ppms at this time but just increasing watering frequency as they are getting bigger and drying out faster..the 2 smaller plants on the right side are a mephisto mix pack auto and a night owl cosmic apprentice auto(this one is in good ole Mountain dirt with some rice hulls,coco and pearlite just as an expirement) Im hoping to be able to take clones from the photos to go outside when the weather permits. Anyone have advice as the best way to root them? Just Water, coco, plugs? I have a heat mat, humidity dome, some type(not clonex) of rooting hormone powder and small light. I guess I'm just looking for which method works best. Id love to have a clone machine but I don't clone enough to justify 70$ at this point anyway. . Oh I almost forgot, I have 2 photon farms autos I am soaking to start. Its double grape slurricane auto. I buffered the coco days ago and I've been letting it dry out b4 I plant this time. I think this has been my problem bc my plants always seem a couple weeks behind schedule. Hopefully ill be able to figure this thing out lol. Thanks for everyone's advice and help! Happy growing guys! attach]90114[/attach]
Soooo I almost quit updating this grow. I'm embarrassed to say that I just flipped a couple weeks ago (3/11/22 they came out of 36 hr dark period by 3/18/22 pistils showed n I started counting flower days) lol some people are probably already done and harvesting and I just flipped 🙃 late for everything. Tbf I was waiting on my new light (switched from 1000watt DE hps/mh to a mars hydro FCE 6500) and also was trying to time my clones right. I took clones from each plant B4 flowering to go outside this spring. First time cloning so I didn't want to take them too early and not have room/lights for them until they can go outside. (VA) excuses excuses but those were 2 big factors in my decision, not to mention it's taking me over a month to get my plants out of seedling stage. Still don't know what I'm doing wrong. Planted 2 autos and let coco dry out more this time B4 planting, only misted with spray bottle and STILL only do of feeding, idk. Anyways after taking these pictures I defoliated and cleaned up the bottoms of plants n around future bud sites.
