I think I fucked up. Lol. Everything seemed to be going well, I’m starting the 5th week of growth and these plants look like little dwarfs. What am I doing wrong? 72-78 degrees, 18 light 6 dark, watering. Seemed like I messed up my doing LST. Any suggestions? These are my 2 plants now. Super skunk autoflower. HELPPPP!!!1FCEB497-4865-430C-A9BB-72B367B624D4.jpeg 9A398657-6FE9-4FF5-9B17-1CBF3D9D466F.jpeg 9A398657-6FE9-4FF5-9B17-1CBF3D9D466F.jpeg 1FCEB497-4865-430C-A9BB-72B367B624D4.jpeg 9A398657-6FE9-4FF5-9B17-1CBF3D9D466F.jpeg 1FCEB497-4865-430C-A9BB-72B367B624D4.jpeg 3CB6AD9B-8314-4EAA-8FC9-DCA13BB58C1E.jpeg

I’m using Happy Frog soil, mixed with perlite. The Lost Coast is a plant wash that kills any bugs. As far as feeding I spray them with Foop occasionally. I probably give them 8 oz of water twice daily. Is that too much water? 151DA45E-FB61-4658-A04C-B7804BD2C26B.png 151DA45E-FB61-4658-A04C-B7804BD2C26B.png F85E5EEA-592F-4646-BA1E-C1B8D0C2E1CB.png

I generally water ever 3 days if not over 75degs or in flower growing fast
I water each plant until I see runoff water coming out bottom (a good flow) then stop,
I then check the weight of pot and let it dry out a few days , then pick up the plant to see how light it has gotten. Most plants will drink most water in 3 days, The soil will be dry at the surface and down a few inches this is when I water again. If you are watering everyday could be a part of your problem also.

Yes I believe you are both correct. I’m backing off the water. Shit I hope I’m not too late. Not that it’s a big deal I mean the seeds were $90, the plants started off beautifully. But over watering makes sense. Temp fluctuates a bit lowest is 70 degrees highest 80. I’m just going to let them grow a bit. If 12 weeks is the life of an autoflower I hope these little guys can recover. I’m in NY so I just wanted to give weed a shot to grow now that I’m allowed to. I’ll keep you guys posted, and thank you guys for being cool and not making me feel like an idiot. Have a great day.

I agree it could be genetics but over watering is easy to do. I bet they will be fine. Let them dry out good where plenty oxygen is pulled down to the root system and hopefully they will recover.
Autos can be funny creatures but they are a blast to grow once you get it down.
Reminds me of when I grew the 1st Autos called Lowryders. They were short and looked like Runts. Didn't care for them at all but they have come along way on Autos. I have grown them many times since then and loved them. Last one I grew was Cartys Gabagoo. She was awesome. Look in the February Bud Of The Month Contest and you will see what Gabagoo looks like.

Check your local laws , I have friends in NY and they are not allowed to grow in home until after the recreational Dispensaries open, which may never happen if the County you reside in ,Votes to not allow such actions .
Be careful who you tell, better yet think of growing as Fight Club

Ok 10 days later and I let the plants absorb the existing water in the pots. They seem to be bouncing back. I’m optimistic again. Lol. Any opinions?

yo momma...
water heavy and let dry...you mentioned you gave your plants 8 oz. twice a day...how did you determine that was the right amount...the plants look like you've been keeping them wet all the time...they'll die soon enough if you continue...water and let dry out but not letting them wilt...you don't need to keep the green wet either, you may be asking how to deal with mold soon enough...keep it simple
