    this grow i am doing 6 autos, 2 gelato, 2 blackberry, 2 gg#4, all from fast buds. im growing them in coco in 5 gallon pots. im watering and feeding everyday to 10-20% runoff...light is a 575 watt led right now its about 4 foot above plants. and im using advanced nutrients. they sprouted sept 23 and are now on day 13. gave them a feed yesterday of 2 ml sensi grow coco and 2 ml b52 then deluded down to desired ppm . and hit them with a little recharge. i have been giving them orca every watering and mammoth p for the last week. switched the light to 18-6 and temps hang around mid 70's and dip to high 60's to lows 70's when lights off. also i have some co2 bags, i dont care for them as they are pretty inconsistent.

    You are way over watering. There is no reason to water daily. You need to read up on the wet/dry cycle and start practicing it. Another bit of advice for next time you don't start seedlings in 5 gal pots. Start them in solo cups or something similar. Then step them up as they grow. Best of luck.

    Autos typically live in one container their whole lives. Its generally understood that transplanting them is not advised.

    update day 20. temps 73-77 day and dips to 68 lights off. light is still on veg at 4 foot away on a 18-6 schedule. feeding 2mls per gallon sensi grow coco A+B ph to 5.6 then added orca. i fed the gg#4 70ppm and the others 120ppm. tested coco with soil pen and all are from 5.7 -6.0 ph, between all 6 pots there was about 3-4 gallons of runoff that tested 6.4ph and 80 ppm.

    i was wondering if i should start will bud ignitor now that they around about to start flowering . what do you guys think

    You might want to up the nutes some...70 ppm is like nothing. Most tap water has a higher ppm than that.

    update day 31. temps from 75-79 humidity 45-60%, light on 18/6, feeding 4mls sensi grow a+b per gallon and 2ml b-52, giving 1ml orca and .6 mammoth.


    i was under feeding them, they are much happier now, i had to correct my coco ph the little gg#4 was at 5.5 rest were 5.7-5.9 so corrected all to 6-6.1, i think i had a potassium lockout how this fixes it.
    the nodes are staggered now should i still run the sensi grow till they stop stretching and quit the b-52 and start bud ingnitor?

    Love the family portrait, they are soaking up some rays : )
    Your overall conditions sound great and good catch on the ph/K lockout. They seem to appreciate the attention!

    I read earlier posts after I posted and saw that you had been keeping your ph in the right range so I figured that 5.9 was your intent. My phone misinterprets my intent a lot too... ;)
