They look like you need to start ferts. Are you talking 10hrs total light or 10 of direct sunlight?

Never had a problem outdoors with mites. Most outdoor conditions do not help the mites.

GH3(General Hydroponics) part is a specific fertilizer.
Many members use Fox Farm also, there are many different kinds.

I would mix it with the water.

Use a liquid or a water soluble fertilizer

I use fox farm soil. It is loaded with nutes so I don't feed for a while, till they ask for it. I use roots organic nutes.
You need to read read read. Good luck! And green mojo!
