Soil Growers:
1. Are you growing from seed or clones? Large 20 gal plant is from seed.
2. How old are your plants? 82 days old from seed.
3. How tall are your plants? about 12 inches
4. What size containers are they planted in? 20 gallon.
5. What is your soil mix? 40% Ocean Forest and 60% Strawberry Fields then added an additional 2 gallons of perlite to this mix. Added some worm castings a few weeks ago.
6. How often do you water and what type of water do you use? About every 3-4 days.
7. What is the pH of your water? 6.5-6.6
8. What kind of fertilizer do you use and what is its NPK ratio? No fertilizer, and botanicare cal mag at lowest strength.
9. Do you foliar feed or spray your plants with anything? No
10. What kind of lights do you use and how many watts combined? LED TS 3000 at about 350 true watts, 20 inches.
11. How close are your lights to the plants? 20 inches.
12. What size is your grow space in square feet? 16, I'm using a 4x4x80 grow tent.
13. What is the temperature and humidity in your grow space? 79F at about 47rh
14. What is the pH of the soil? Never checked it.
15. Have you noticed any insect activity in your grow space? I did have fungus nats but all are gone with use of mosquitoe bits and yellow stickys.
16. How much experience do you have growing? Had one good grow with coco and flora treo, this is my second grow and using soil this time.

The main issue is the leaves are mainly yellow although some of the lower leaves (very few of those) are darker green and I don't want the plant to die before harvest.
This plant is supposed to be Acapulco Gold, a tall plant (presently only about 12 inches) from crop king that has a flower time of 8-9 weeks. When I first germinated I let the seeds dry out to much and lost 4 out of the 5, that was first mistake. When the seedling stage started I had a stoner moment and set the timer to 16/8 and only noticed when I saw hairs growing and changed to 12/12 (day 22 from seed). The plant is now 82 days from seed, very short (which I can deal with) but not exactly sure what week of flower I am in or why its so yellow and how long I have until chop. Should I add nitrogen to try to make it green (or is it so close to chop it is normal yellow), or should I add some flower fertilizer (4-35-26 cultivation nation), or do nothing but water?

After thought, What caused the plant to be so short?

I hope I typed this in a manner that can be understood.

Well looks to be an uptake issue, nutrient depletion, root issue or transpiration. But they are close to finished anyhow so maybe a review of your watering practices would help because that may have contributed.

Do you have a fan on them?

Ability to test leaf temp because i think they will be high? Are your upper leaves crispy?

The foxtailing could also be high leaf/plant temps but partially genetics. Is there more foxtailing closer to the lights?

This may help you on the next run. You dont want to add nitrogen now. At this point your growing buds and not leaves. It’s natural to see some senescence late in the grow as the plants putting all energy into reproduction.

I would maybe different pot shape next grow for easier watering but i really dont see to much wrong or room to make improvements this late in the grow

Three fans, one tower and two small satellite fans. My temps at leaf level 79 during the day and 72 at night RH 45 during the day and about the same at night. I water every 3 to 4 days with a little cal mag and ph about 6.6. Do you think I should add the lowest dosage of the Cultivation Nation in the pic? Or just continue with just the cal-mag water. Do you think they will survive another 30 days?

There supposed to be photoperiod but I was wondering if I was sent auto by mistake by crop king. So should I continue with water and small dose cal-mag, water only, or water with small dose cal-mag and the flower nutes small dose as in pic?

Light nutrient feed every second would be what i would do. 1/4 dose

Pleasssse, ANYONE?
Crop King misrepresented and sold you the name only. If it was AG you would have had to train it at that time frame or it would have outgrown your height limit. IMO they look close to done anyway,cple weeks tops if you even want to go that far. Get better genetics from honest vendors and you will find it easier with better results.

I just figured i screwed them up that bad and stunted them. I knew they were not true AG as they were not advertised as 100% sativa. Who should I consider to be honest vendors or are you allowed to say in the forum?

Everyone has an opinion on that,there are some people on this board that supply seeds,cuttings, they have to be ethical or they will get called out.
