Any tips are appreciated for new start up! Hello guys I recently just started growing almost 4 weeks ago and wondering what is wrong with this plant? I used mother earth 70/30 perlite blend. I didn’t really know what I was doing any just start a few bad roots by Clearwater genetics. Why do they look like this? I would like to try to keep it alive if possible. I’m switching to soil after I germinate these new seeds.
Pics below: I’ve done nothing but put a tiny bit of buildasoil craft blend when I started them and ph water 5.6

Do you know what happened to them? Or why that leaf looks like that? Yeah I’m waiting on some auto flowers to get here to start over!

I have a Mars hydro fc-3000
300 watts.
Do you have a recommendation what I should run the light at for starting my plants out at? I had it set a recommended for the light. I believe it’s 12-18 inches above plants at 50% so 150 watts. I definitely can see that they got too much nutrients. Waitin on some autos to get here to give it another shot🤣

I have a fce-4000 so for seedlings you want it at 36 inches and minimum on the dimmer. They dont need much until they grow older like a few branches. Also what soil you said mother earth.. theres different kinds was it coco ?

Yes sir it was mother earths 70/30 coco/perlite blend. I tested the runoff and it was really high. My buddies who have been growing for a few years told me I should start with soil. I have a bag of happy frog and ocean forest that I was thinking about mixing 50/50 and trying that? What do u think

Im first time grower and I used Miracle Grows Seedling soil. I know some hate Miracle Grow but it was 2-1-2 without long term Nitrogen release. I bought Black Gold for the next grow.
I didnt feed it any nutes until I transplanted after week 2. When I transplanted I used 1/3 Fox Farm Ocean Forest and 2/3 Happy Frog soil. In between the layers I put 4 cups of worm castings I bought at Home Depot. I also top dressed with worm castings. After week 3 I top dressed Dr Earth Tomato, Veg and Herb 4-6-3. Then week 4 i used 2 cups Dr Earth Pot of Gold Liquid Organic digested food. I guess it comes from dead animals bellies when they butcher them. It was highly acidic. My tap water is 8 pH. I always pH down my water to 6.5. After mixing 1/4 to 1 gallon the pH was still 3.3. It took 32ml of pH Down to bring it to 6.6pH. I gave the 2 autos 1 cup each and they got really green. Close to Nitro tox but they are ok and preflowering like crazy now in week 4. They are White Widows.
I wont feed them for a bit now. The 2 photo Super Skunks loved the nutes. They sucked them right up and got nice and green but no toxicities showing. They gave me no shock during transplant or when I topped them. I topped the one a few days ago and FIMd the other this morning. The smell is amazing. I am trying a small hydro grow of Purple Kush I got coming from ILGM after this harvest. But man this Super Skunk genetics are amazing.

The runt in the 3rd pic had a deformed cotyledon. It was stunted. I decieded since it was a living thing I would give it a chance. It lived up to my expectations and is now is taller than the super skunks. Its showing Sativa dominance. Its a White Widow autoflower. It is the one that is preflowering like crazy. Never underestimate a runt.

Thanks bud. Yeah I rushed into things but I just started 14 new seeds 12/14 have popped up. I switched to a 50/50 blend of fox farm happy frog and ocean forest with some worm castings. The only plant that survived this round I posted about is this girl and she’s started to do really good after I transplanted out of that Mother Earth coco and gave some recharge
