    1. Myth Busting - Autoflowers Revegging (can autoflowers reveg? Give us your thoughts!)

    Come give us your thoughts; we want to hear from you!
  • We're looking for grower submissions for any autoflowers that they have had tested by a lab or using a home testing device. The idea is to create a grouping of tests that we can use a resource to show growers (both new and experienced) what kind of cannabinoids and terpenes some of the strains we're growing are testing out with!

    Appreciate any help and consideration! Click here for the thread!

You only need to foliar once. Maybe a second time 10 days later. Soil drench once a week with you regular fertigation.

They look better maybe a little too much nitrogen fertilizer? They will make it. Patients is a virtue when waiting for your plants to ripen.

that eases my mind! I am so excited for these! Thanks for the reply!

thanks man o green! I did the foliage once and a soil drench yesterday, but the foliar I used a real low dosage so I hope I didn’t hurt them with too much 5:2, I haven’t added any nitro ferts, but I have big bloom and cal mag and it doesn’t have any nitrogen, I haven’t used it because it was having problems, do you think I am okay to use them or should I stay the course with water only? Thanks for your time, I am so glad that they are going to make something lol, I can’t believe I grew my own!

Looking at your plants you still have too much nitrogen showing in the pots! yes you can use a little Big Bloom once a week 30%. Be careful we don't want to get the pot out of balance any worse than it already is.

Keeping it simple requires not stressing over it. I'm gonna' say something here that many might disagree with, but it makes sense to me. When you're flushing, there's no need to adjust PH (during grow, not towards harvest time) I look at it like this. When you're flushing a plant that has too many nutes (the plant is showing signs of stress from toxicity) the last thing that seems logical to me is adjusting the PH so that the plant can take in more. When flushing at this point, you're just trying to remove salt build up/nutes. Towards end of life, PH would matter, because you'd want the stored nutes going to the flowers. I'd water slowly, I see a lot of people just dump water in the pot and walk away. I'll water my plant 3-5 times before it's fully watered, this happens within 3-5 minutes. I like to let the water have time to expand through the medium, then water a little more. It might take me a lot longer, but in between there's time to do other task.
@NoSnitchNeeded The reason you ALWAYS PH the water going into your media -all media- has to do with the osmotic pressure inside the roots. The roots control the ingress of water and nutrients based on the osmotic pressure difference between the inside of the roots vs outside of the roots. If you provide a big difference suddenly the roots can be overwhelmed and stressed. They may already be under stress because you are flushing for some reason! You do not want to cause more stress! If the PH is sufficiently high or low the roots can be damaged.

I'm not sold on the perfect PH. There's a range, yes. Depending on hydro, living soil or other mediums. Take the PH of the rain after a storm, it's never the same. Things have to vary. I keep the range from 5.8-6.5 as I grow in mostly a soilless mix and feeds lots of teas. The PH of the soil tends to hover around 7, and that's when I go on the lower side of my ph, trying to push it down a little. The soil will find the balance and the plant will take what it needs. soil over PH imo.

I have been applying the 5:2, alternating between foliar And soil drench (because of the buds, I was getting spray on them no matter how careful I was, thought it might mold because my humidity has been a little high)

do you still think they look okay, and will make it to the finish? I’m hoping because it smells amazing and is filling out pretty good.

thanks man!
looks like light burn, but I could be wrong.. You running LED's? how powerful? What's the light schedule? What's the PPFD?

Mars hydro ts3000 at 75%, here is them today, left is tropical wizard, right is Northern Cheese Haze (NCH look way better health wise, must be genetics) I was thinking I might move my light up a few inches as it’s sitting about 10 inches away from the tallest one, what do yall think?

man o green posted a chart with the lights info at the beginning of the thread, I think that has the technical informationfrom manufacture

thanks everyone my first harvest will be magical and you all have been way nicer and patient than any other forum I’ve tried to get help, so once again thank you all and I hope you all get some good karma your way!
