Now you're cooking 😎🔥
Scrap that last thing and start over 👍
Definitely mix coco into your soil at a ratio of 2:1 (2parts soil:1part coco). It is even reccomended to do this printed on most soil bags. The coco stops the soil from compacting, aids with aeration etc and vastly improves root growth vs soil alone. This in turn noticeably increases final yield, (in my experience by about 33%+ vs soil alone). I have always mixed coco into my soil, since the first time I tried it. You can even buy pre mixed soil, like Tropic Batmix etc, that are premixed 2:1 soil:coco with added guano etc.
Biobizz Allmix is a good allround soil and biobizz nutes do a good organic job start to finish 👍 or if you want a "hot" soil for flower you can look at Plagron batmix, H&G batmix or Tropic Batmix. (But for sure always make sure theres coco mixed in 2:1 if its not already premixed) 👍

Ive not used that one myself but it looks ok👍
I would personally still mix coco into your soil, Or at least mix it into one pot and see for yourself how much of a difference it makes(with that particuar soil).
Good luck man 😎🙌 I look forward to the journal!!📷📖

FedEx showed up about 2pm. Got the ladies in some and some much needed nutes. Been fasting for the last 2 days. I'll upload photos when I get home

Start treating for bugs now. I’m sure the mites from your old plants are already marching towards fresh food.

Never saw mites on the old plants. Gnats, but they only ate the pineapple. (Non weed variety)
And we have lots of spiders out here. But I'll maintain vigilance. If they can be pointed out of any of the pictures, that would help tremendously.

This picture looks like it has webs from spider mites. I could be wrong, it could be actual spiders, but spider mites are the most common cannabis pest and everyone gets them. If you search the forums for dealing with spider mites you'll find all sorts of solutions and information on how to identify them and kill them.

Crazy, I was just finishing my own research and after seeing pictures, I don't have spider mites. That is an actual spider web. EVERYTHING around here has spider webs on it. I torched 2 black widows this month. All the white is actually pvc dust that got blown onto them. No red bugs, except lady and they are welcome.

But, thank you for the knowledge. I now know something else to be on the lookout for and what it looks like

These ladies spent a couple of days in Rockwool and solo cups until the dirt showed up. I initially put dirt in the cups with them so that they could get some roots into much needed food. In 3 days the strawberry cough had a decent chunk of soil under the Rockwool. The MAC and Gelato surprised me. They had started to run around the sides of the cup. I transplanted them right before their 6 hours of shut eye and put them out like before at sunrise. I did change  when they got their 18 and 6. I was turning the lights off at midnight and putting them outside at sunrise. Lady night, I turned the lights off at 1800, then the full spectrum grow from 0000 to 0600, then the sun from ~ 06 to 1800. Do I need to do anything else for them? Why are the leaves yellow and droopy? What are they missing and where can I get it?

I never considered the fan leaves developing before the stems, so it looked weird, almost like it was happening backwards.

Pots are too dry, your plants are unhealthy and stunted 🥀
Perhaps you should avoid the clones from that dispensary or start from seed to get a better grow/learn/share wheel started (life lesson). Sickly plants should be scrapped.

I disagree. My MAC 1 and Gelato are actually drying out right now. Poor girls were drowning. And MAC looks like she's trying to get ready for prom at freshman orientation. I'm hoping from the stress of overwatering since they've been on a strict light schedule and are now on zero sleep status until I'm sure they'll stay in veg. I may not turn them off at all. And these clones came from a different dispensary, were light years better specimens than the last place, and 9 out of 10 tenders grow their own. And to each their own, but I'll never scrap a plant that's not brown and dry.

The last 2 are of a seed of unidentified strain, found in a tin of dispensary weed. Wasn't sure if it would even sprout. I had 9 seed that popped a taproot all die so i wasn't very confident in this one, but it's taller every time I pass it.

Looks like you might need to help get the shell off if it doesn't open soon ...

I was wondering about that today. Should I or would that do more harm than good? I was going to try tomorrow if it did not fall off tonight but maybe not wait?

So after a couple days of drying out they're looking a lot better, go some good new growth. I turned the lights on and broke the knob off so I'm pretty sure we brought MAC to the present. She may have started to flower cause she was drowning and thought she was going to die.

So my MAC 1 started to flower, likely due to temp or environmental stress. After much research, I put all the plants on 24/0 to get her back to veg. My strawberry cough had me excited at her seeming indifference to anything and really quick growth as well. Now all that new growth has resulted in leaves with only 3 points when originally she was 5-7. I read that this can result from light stress. MAC and Gelato seem to have stalled out. Pics are 10 minutes old and include their home when the sun is not out. Usually till about 9am here in sunny San Diego. I would ask what to do, but I know there will be questions I have to answer before that info is available. Thanks in advance.
