Is this leaf edges curling still to much light. There's a bunch of pics lol. I think it is either to much light or low on potassium. The temp and humidity are at a Normal range. Bottom 2 pics are the second plant.

I switch a light setting to the veg setting. I didn't have it on veg setting before as it was a blueish light and I was under 5he impression blue was for seedlings but maybe it won't be as extreme of a light for them. Idk lol guess it doesn't hurt to see what happens.

Keep both veg and bloom lights on. I have a blurple light like yours with a veg and bloom switch.

Hey all just joined thanks for having me. Just started my first grow. I actually kinda jumped the gun haha. I ordered new 1000 wat led to run in my small grow tent. However wont be here for a couple weeks so I actually started my plants yesterday. Just not in the tent yet. I planted fat bastard autos under a florescent till my lights show. I'll set up the tent and move in there in about 2 weeks wondering if yall think that's ok or will I stress these autos to much or not have a good start to growth as I know autos move quick. Let me know what you think. Also I watered yesterday when planted. Should I not water now again till after they sprout. The meduim still appears wet in the middle of the 5 gallon fabric planters. Let me know what you all think about this...
Really appreciate you giving yourself a chance in growing you will notice once they reach flower that you will never go back and will never stop growing from here on out but best of luck and looking forward to following the grow and show

My 15th grow auto flowers(not including the several photo grows we did back in the 70s).
I’ll be doing photos this summer and some autos outside…

What I’ve learned
1). Ph your water (I use PH down
5 -1/4 tsp per 5 Gal H20 let sit 2 days (st. Louis water 9.5 alkalinity & plants having trouble absorbing nutrients). No more brown spots on plants as well as house plants with proper Ph…
2) Ph your water
3) Ph your water (I hope you are doing this or you get it because I didn’t for my first seven grows)
4)Add 3 to 4 Tbsp of Hoffman Chicken Manure mixed well into the soil.(before filling Pots)
5)Add 3 to 4 Tbsp worm Castings mixed well into the soil
(before filling Pots)
6) Water every 3 to 4 days, use your hands not your head !!! Meaning when top of soil feels dry and pot has reduced weight by 60 to 70% time to water…(don’t feel like you have to water every day, again use your hands not your head)
7) Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) are excellent And can help a lot of finicky plants which you will get with Auto’s
2 Tbsp per/Gal H20, I usually use the salts around day 15-20-25-30-40-50 range 3 or 4 times when general watering with no nutrients. (Water with nutrients next)
My plants are 64 and 46 days old in the picture attached.
8) If u get a stunted plant use the Epsom salt & Superthrive or BioAg Humic acid…stimulates roots, increases nutrient uptake.
I have seen at least five or six plants thrive on that stuff.
9) Add garden grade Cow Manure to soil when pre-mixing.
I use about 15% per total soil mix…(When we grew back in the 70s we actually grew on a Curtis bull breeding farm in Cary Il., their fields were full of shit seriously no bullshit story!!!!!!!
9) My lights height
25-30” seedlings
22-24” Veg
18-20” Flower
10) read up on LST & Supercroping training… also have some frog tape or any half-inch tape stuck to one of your lights because you will crack a branch & it’s hard to reach for the tape when you’re holding the branch from cracking all the way, as a matter of fact it just happened to me today on a real nice tall branch picture attached.
(Training is great to utilize 100% light efficiency, also have a box of 2 x 6 wood blocks that you can use as elevators for your pots to keep everybody close to the same height.)
11) it’s not a matter of if, but when you will get soil gnats.
Buy yellow gnat sticky paper, Cut into 2 x 3” sheets and put a shish kebab skewer through them push down into plant & and catch those suckers. It’s a yellow flag that says to the gnats Land on me !

12) Harvest-Trichomes cloudy not clear & ~ approximately 10% Amber , although my sativa‘s are harvested pretty much at 100% cloudy minimal Amber…
personally I remove all large leaves before hang drying my plants for nine days, I leave the sugar leaves on them…
And since I don’t like opening 21 quart jars twice a day for curing
I use a Lg food cooler with a screen in it where I place all my buds on top after I have trimmed the sugar leaves for curing 4-5 weeks, then I use jars & vacuum pack bags placed in jars in the refrigerator for storage @ 55-60% humidity. I keep cooler humidity at 55 to 63%, after about three or four days in the cooler the terpenes will start to smell great.
So buy a Hygrometer (humidity gauge) $6-7 At Petco, Lowe’s etc. It’s your best friend.
Note: It’s hard to wait nine days for drying before final trim & cure, but that is what you want the process of starting to convert Thca to Thc at a minimal level… Full conversion comes over 335°F when combusted in general.

Disclaimer: I didn’t read this whole thread so much of this may have been covered or other great ideas I am by no way an expert but can only repeat what works for me.
Have fun 🎶😎🎶

Ok all here we are at week 8. I will be doing an early flip on these ladies as I don't have much hight in my tent and need them super short. I relize its not ideal for Yield or what you oros would do. However I can only do what I cant do. My last feeding I gave nutes. Half recomended dosage I was watering about once every 10 days then down to 7 and they seem like they might be drinking a but more now so I may have to up that. I'll jeep same amount of nutes half recomended dosage however because of room not sure how long I can go before the flip. So far there staying short but I no they double in size quick after the flip. I only got like 35 inches to the light. From canopy

yep go ahead and start lowering hours, an hour every 4 days should be good till you get to 12/12 than leave it.. or just switch to 12/12..
more of a blue spectrum light will help keep plants shorter for first couple weeks than switch to a more red spectrum for flowering till finish if you can..
