Needing help with some weird issues

  • Well, we're still working on things and I imagine we'll see some bugs, some breaking, and things that need to get fixed. We'll start on the most critical things first and work our way down. We're still installing add-on's and squaring away some licensing stuff, but feel free to browse the board and we'll update everyone on when things are added, restored, or otherwise changed.

Hey,

I got 2 of my autos doing something crazy, so I'll give some basic info and post up some pics, any help is greatly appreciated,

1st
OG kush
Soil amended with coco and perlite
Germinated with peat pellet and transfered to 5 gal pot.
So far just phed water, with 1 drop of super thrive added in.
Temp in the grow tent high in past 24 hours was 80.
Growing with 2 t8 led tubes with a assortment of cfl and led bulbs for added support 6500k, 5000k, 3300k, 2700k.
Humidity steady at 55% fluctuating maybe 5% up or down.

2nd
Blue berry bliss
Dwc
General Hydroponics flora series with fluracious plus, supertrhive.
Germinated with a peat pellet and transfered to dwc 5 gal bucket, via hydroton, i keep the water high with the air stones on to mist the basket.
Now the peat pellet is still attached and I'm thinking its staying to saturated, and it's staying to over watered, but what do you all think?.

I think I included everything, let me know what you all think.

Ryan, you’ve come to the right place, the Calvary is en route. How old are those gals, and what are you getting for pH/ppm readings?

Ps: the water should be about a half inch below the netpot, so your medium should be dried out or mostly on your DWC lady. Don’t worry about it. Are her roots in the water?

Hey,

The plant in soil is about 4 weeks old and the dwc is 1 weed behind her, I'm not sure on the ppm, I get a different reading every time I check it, "time to get a new pen" but gh trio at half strength, in dwc I'm get around 150 ppm to 200 ppm, huge spikes, and no her roots haven't hit the water yet, I was thinking about removing her and trying to wash away the peat and manualy put pebbles around her to hold her up and see of that doesn't fix some of the over saturated issues.

But the pH on the dwc sitting at 5.8, and the pH in soil run off is is 6.5

Look I’m no expert, I have been growing only a year, and only in DWC. But if she was mine I would scrap her and start over. At 3 weeks she should be in the water. But my DWC tricks are few.

The experts will be by shortly with a more confident answer to your growing blues ... we’ve all been there. I had one that looked like that and when I went to look and see what was going on, her roots were miniaturized and illformed. I 86’d it.

Well I'm not gonna lie this is my first dwc grow, I'm using a resurculating 4 bucket system and this girl was just acting weird, I only had 3 blueberry bliss seeds so I was hoping to make her work but yeah I believe it might be time to put her down,

I mainly grow out doors with photo periods, but I figure I'd try my hand at indoor and hydroponics, but anyways I wasn't sure what was going on with these 2 girls.

What pH pen are you using? And has it been calibrated recently? Both flat look pH related.

But I concur, its probably cull time.

:toke:- Ryan... [HASHTAG]#1[/HASHTAG] is long term underfed, stunted... I see multiple defc. symptoms, and this late in the game, not much can be done to improve her... start feeding ASAP if you want to see what you can got out of her, but bloom will start soon.... yields may not be worth the effort....
....soil blending with coco is very iffy! Coco is often a component of true soil, but coco itself isn't, and by itself is considered a specialized soilless medium with a lot of do's and don't's... it's ratio in true soil is carefully balanced and the components of the soil are tailored to accommodate this. What soil brand are you using?

[HASHTAG]#2[/HASHTAG], pretty much the same,... no roots in the water, little to no feeds getting in,... if you want to run any kind of hydro, you'll need to get decent equipment for ppm and pH, they are critical to this,....
I hate to say it, but my recommendation is to reboot this grow, these plants would still need a month to finish for very little return.... Auto's are not forgiving in this way mate, veg' has to go very well because there's no time to make up for lost ground, bloom comes ready or not....

Yeah I agree, I got a auto flower that supposed to veg longs, a power plant xl, and I'm going to retry this, and see how this goes
