So just doing a week by week of my first grow... Im on week two, and I am going to post pics of it.
Do they look healthy? Any advice on how to keep them healthy, and make sure they survive would be appreciated. Just wanna know overall if they look healthy or a tad droopy (I just watered)

Yes its 74%, it was around 60% before I watered them. I had watered them maybe five minutes before I took the pictures.

Allow for some stretch. Don't scorch your plants like they're in a constant 12/12 cycle because that can lead to stunted growth, which in turn, can mean a short shelf-life for your fan leaves. The evidence of which will always stack up around 2 weeks into flowering. They look like they're doing great. Gl. Oh and DO NOT over fertilize because it can be a bitch to flush the soil afterwards assuming that is soil.

Looking good. What type of soil and what do you plan to feed?

Next time plant and little more soil in those bags. Best thing to do is don't react to growing weed. Pay attention to the plant and read a lot. Your soil will carry a plant for a good 3 weeks before a mild mix should be applied. Get some good nutrients and study on the best to use and why. Always have an open mind. I suggest for a low plant count maybe a cheap distilled unless you get an RO filter. Feed in gallon mixes. Always feed a gallon of feed and always at least use a gallon of water. Anything under is sure to build up salt. For flush 1.5-2 x pot size.

Normally plants will appear droopy after a water. Just let them get pretty dry before the next

Yeah, I was gonna ask that, during the Bloom stage should I be feeding the flowers close to a gallon of water every feed of nutes?

You want to do it now. Never put less than a gallon is a good rule to follow.

I wish I could follow such rules. I've had a dry out and it cost me $40 bucks worth of worms and pretty much nuked my soil life although I didn't mind having sprigtails jumping in my eyes nose and throat.

By the way let me emphasise that I run a no till growing style so it doesn't apply to you @daniel15slas . We utilize the soil food web to feed. Amending soil with organic matter and biochar and mineral dust as well as malted grains and then using enzymes to feed microheards that are responsible for decomposing organic matter to process it down into uptakeable nutrients.

A little trick is to add aloe Vera to your waterings. Even when feeding bottled nutrients silicilic acid found in aloe will keep your plants SAR (systemic acquired resistance) up. This is a natural resistance to pestilence and disease that is locked inside but has been suppressed due to hybridization of strains. Aloe also increases your soils ability to absorb and retain moisture.

Would the Aloe Vera trick be good for my indoor sickly looking female? If so, how much aloe gel per gallon, and how often should it be used?
