Fox farm nutrients
Started with big bloom and grow big
3 days ago switched the lighting to 12 1/2 hours dark and added tiger bloom, they are 53 days old, I feed them every other watering which is every 5 or 6 days bc I water them every 2-3 days, I spray the tent a few times a day and right before I switch the lights of!? Any help in any sort would be amazing what I’m doing right or wrong!? I’m up for learning until I know it all then do it again! These pics are from today about an hour ago!? Huge thing I can’t figure out until later on is female or male, I for some reason can’t ever figure that out and I know what I’m looking for so I don’t know why I can’t ever figure it out! I use a 2.3x2.3 spider farmer tent with the sf-1000, light is 16 inches above plant tops. I just trimmed all three today as well and done another tie down and a little twist on the tops for some lst

I had issues with them at first, they started outside, I didn’t have the tent, we got three days in a row that snowed and would rain and was cold as hell, they sat in my kitchen floor 3 days with no light, I’ve trained them way too early, I was just experimenting with these ones until my seeds come in, whatever is female I will keep and post for sure bc I’m interested as well, I have one outside that I topped when it got its 3rd node” I know that’s early af” that’s why I did it, I wanted to see how they react to everything bc I’ve only done one grow before this one and I’ve been researching for a while and I wanted to try to do it a little different, I’ve been bending them since they were about 10 days old, I also had a dumbass moment and idk what I was thinking bc I’ve done it twice and I cut all the fan leaves off

Ah, makes sense now haha

Dont worry, it must be newbie syndrome because I have found myself constantly cutting off fan leafs too... I feel like they are blocking too much

Haha that’s what i was doing, I thought well if I get rid of this then it gives this spot a chance to come up, I did a Christmas tree well 3 of them last year outdoors and didn’t hardly do much but a little bouncing we shall say to the branches every few days

Topping above the third node isn’t really too early.

Don't touch them for a while and let them build up some foliage so they can gain some acceleration in growth. Maybe even go 20 or 24 hours to increase DLI. Add a second light for flower to keep the DLI up in flower. Good luck!

I noticed this was 9 days ago. Would like to see updates later to see how they recovered.

DLI?

Daily light integral. It's a measurement of total light the plant receives in a day. For example. When you go to 12 hours the plants will literally get 50% less light than in veg. If you want bigger buds then you increase the intensity to match the prior total light given. I hope this helps.

More light equals more growth. The buds are the most important so more light during flower equals more bud.

Here is my tent cam. I vegged at 120 watts and flower at 200 watts. Day 76 total Day 46 in flower.

The leaves are mottled due to calcium lockout. First time with rockwool. Hand watering drain to waste. But it's under control now and they are swelling and throwing out white pistils. This is a single plant.

You probably dwarfed out your plants by feeding to soon, with photoperid plants dont feed anything till they gain size, use a mix made for weed like fox farm, pro mix or bio bizz, if you want weed quickly try autoflowers but they are run different than photoperid plants if you decide to try i will help you even have some seeds i dont personally like not bc there no good just dont like the strain is all.

That’s crazy all from one plant, there’s more on that than the Christmas tree I done last year outdoors

I figured I feed too early bc I did it like a week after they popped, I didn’t do all of the extras to mine last year so I had some bag seed and decided to do it completely different bc if anything happened to these plants I didn’t really care lol but I do know all three in my tent are female and I’d say I will only have some tiny buds but I’ll do it all different next time.

Our tents are exactly the same size. I think you just started trimming and defoliating to early. I tend to be impatient so I leave as many leaves on because I know it needs them for energy so it grows as fast as possible. I then start taking from the bottom first and then from the canopy once they start crowding.

I have two 150 watt lights that I dim to 120w for veg at 20 hrs and 200 watts at 12 hrs so they get the same amount of light during flower. Its really bright in there at 200 so I haven't needed more. If that's a 100 watt you have adding a second and setting it to 150w(total both lights combined) will maintain your energy to the plant the whole grow. Electric bill stays the same whether it's veg or flower. Or you could veg at 133w at 18hrs and flower at 200w with both lights from the start.

This is my first photo grow. First scrog. I fimmed her once but topping probably do the same result. I've grown one auto under an LED and two autos outside. So far every grow the yeilds have gotten better. I think it's possible to get a pound from our sized tents if we utilize all the canopy and correct genetics.

The top pic is my auto a day before harvest. I got around 166g after drying and it looks like it used maybe 40% of tent. The seedling is the current plant in bottom pic. Except now the bigger plant is growing on two 6" rockwool stacked.

The light I have is spider farmer sf-1000 I’m not really sure the wattage, I had it on 90% during veg and now 100% flower, praying for the best lol

Also, you should water all your soil that way roots can grow faster. Only rewater when pot is easy to pick up.
