I don't have experience with DWC, wish I could help you out bro.

I do notice plant leaves will droop sometimes right before lights out.

So this is Veg in mid week of week 4. PPM’s jump around from 350-400’s.

when I lower the PH the PPM’s lower also. When the ph rises so does the PPM’s.
I keep the ph around 5.5-6.0

so not sure if after a month of Veg she should be taller or bigger. I can’t remember my first grow how she went . I mean she looks healthy but after a month I thought she would be bigger.

Looks nice and healthy. I don't start counting my Veg time til almost a week after popping the seed. I don't call it Veg when they just open and are only establishing themselves. Have to let them find themselves before you throw all that stuff at them🤣

Don’t worry they will start exploding pretty soon with growth. Mine was about that size at wk 4, forced it into flower at wk 6 and by so 8 I had the entire 2x2 scrog net filled

Ya I think I’m going to push her veg for another month or two let her get bushy. And then swap her. I have a 2x3 and going to try Scrog for the first time

this was my first plant with veg, trying to get the new one to this level before swapping to flower.

Very nice, looking good! Here was mine at 4 wks from seed (top left was only girl in the bunch), end of 6 wk and 2 days from seed (when I flipped my auto to 12/12 to force her to flower quicker) and then this past Wednesday, which was about 8.5 weeks

Here she is from seed to today is exactly 4 weeks. P.H sits around 5.6-5.8 and PPM’s right now are around 420 with 150 of that being from the faucet water.

I think I’m going to let her get a little bigger before I top. Might only top once or multiple not sure. I only have a 5ft tall tent so not sure how I want to play it. I also have netting to possibly do a scrog. But I want multiple colas, I don’t want just one big cola.

Here’s an update to her. We are now 38 days from seed to now. I just topped her a few days ago and she looks and seems to be doing great.

Keeping the PPM’s around 400 or so and the p.h between 5.6-6.0. Going to do a res change this weekend. Other than that I think she’s doing pretty good. Room temp is about 76F and humidity is around 60-65%.

6/3 update:

From seed to now is 6 weeks. I had some hiccups and even broke a branch completely off which is sad. But she is doing Well.

I bought these Lst 90 degree clips that I just put on today. We’ll see how they do. PPM’s are at about 380 with 120 of that being straight tap water. P.H I like to keep her 5.7-6.0

Hard to tell from the picture, but is the seed shell still stuck on the plant? If it is you can usually remove it, very gently.

In regards to the light, I like to use small 10 watt LED shop lights from Walmart for seedlings. They have a good spectrum and use almost no electricity. The light you have will also work good, it just seems like alot of light for 1 seedling.

All in all, it looks healthy for a seedling, just need the leaves to pop open, should happen soon unless you can remove the shell, if it's on there, again its hard to tell from the pics. Good luck!!
Yeah that looks like seed casing stuck. I always give them a little nudge of myself usually if it's having hard time doing it.

I started lst on a clone I have had for roughly 10 days and the bud sites nearly tripled in that time. It's pretty amazing.
#1-2 when I first started lst 5/24
#3-4 yesterday.

6/7 update:
only a few days later but figured I’d share. I added more of those 90 degree clips. They seem to work great, a little nervous once she gets thicker if the branches will still fit in them. I’ll have to maybe remove them before flower.

she is growing but not fast enough lol. Light is 18 inches away from top, PPM’s 380-400 and p.h 5.6-6.1. I let it creep up then drop her. I’ll most likely top her one more time once she gets another node or so at the top.

that’s about it for now.

Why are some of my leaves bigger than others? Same amount of light thru out. PPM’s kept the same because she’s not showing signs of disliking it.

The tips of your leaves are getting ever so slightly yellow so I’d watch your ppm/leaf tips to see if any nute burn is starting. as for leaves being different sizes, she’ll catch up. That’s happened to me before too idt it’s an indication of anything being wrong.

PPM’s are sitting around 350 which is low. I haven’t raised it at all because she has not shown she’s needed more.
