i started my 11 tomatoe plants on march 8th, they will be indoors until early may. I am using a 120 plant grow n show bulb in metal cover like a heat lamp type thing. The plants are a little over a foot tall, in 5 inch peat cups about the size of styrofoam cup. the soil is miracle grow organic potting mix, .10% Nitrogen, .05% phosphorose, .05% potash. i am running an 18/6 light cycle but i was doing about 12/12 up until a week ago. im pretty sure i have a couple males popping up but i'm not too sure and dont want to kill my ladies.......any help for current and future would be much appreciated........PLEASE HELP!!!!!! thanks:character0103:

Okay so i planted my gems on may 6th, and i used miracle grow outdoor gardening soil......the dirt that i put them is pretty much clay so i kinda mixed it when i put the plant in. Im too fat and lazy to carry water back out to them. It was supposed to rain that nite but didnt until tonite, the 8th.....i went to water them today and the bigger leaves were like frosty white.....What is wrong?PLEASE HELp !!!!

Clay is for making pottery, not for growing pot.

Brittle frosty white leaves?
How big?
