What a coincidence! I've got a GDP going on in water-only LOS but it was sprouted in a 15G pot so growth is a bit slower than yours. It would be interesting to compare.

i think it would be fun to compare them. can i ask why you started in a 15gal pot?

I am doing a no-till grow. Eventually I want to plant a seed while the previous plant is in its final flowering stages. My Afghani was started in a peat pot filled with used soil then transplanted once it sprouted. She is in a pot that has run 3 plants through. This is a water-only grow although I did feed them molasses/kelp tea initially then again when I flipped her.

Don't know why but this site won't let me upload pics.

can you please explain your water only soil? is it living soil you cooked? i really hate peat pots and those pods. i have never used them successfully. i know they are acceptable but i just cant seem to make them work

It is loosely based on Clackamas Coots' mix. I used:

Promix HP 50%
Worm Castings 50% but with added perlite for extra aeration.

That is my base mix. To this I added the following amendments: (per cu.ft.)
1 cup Oyster shell flour
1 cup Eggshells crushed
2 cup Kelp meal
1 cup Alfalfa meal
1/2 cup Dolomite lime
1/2 cup Mineralized Phosphate
1 cup blood meal
1 cup bone meal

This was then moistened with LAB (Lactic Acid Bacteria) and left to stew for a couple of weeks. My first plant with this mix was transplanted (with 1" tail) then sowed some White Clover as a cover crop then mulched with Timothy Hay. Then I simply followed a wet/dry cycle to emcourage root growth.

At the second planting, I top dressed with neem meal, karanja cake and malted barley then watered with molasses/kelp tea.

There are a few recipes floating around but if you do a search for Clackamas Coots organic soil, you should be able to find it. I didn't follow the recipe to the letter but used what was available locally.

My next mix will skip the blood meal as I detected N toxicity, not enough to burn but still noticeable. Hope this helps.

edit:
In looking back at my notes, I added 2 cups of kelp meal. I also have red wiggler worms. So far no escapees LOL.

What light do you have them under? Are the serrations on the leaves turning up? A little more info on the environment they are in could help.

Looking at the second pic, I can't see any issues with heat. But then again I am a beginner myself so someone ought to spot if there is anything wrong.

its a 650r diablo i started out at 48 inches then i dropped it down a little i am running the lights at half i thought it was less at first. i have one plant with variegated leaves from sprout so thats just they way it is. i was thinking overwatered maybe but i will be transplanting them to 5 gal bags on friday so it will be easier to tell

Knowing that your using the 650R and seeing the light green and droopy leaves, I’d say it’s light stress. I think the leaves would have more of the ”taco” effect if it was heat stress.

I think you are on track with the lights, after making the switch to LEDs I had to learn a healthy respect for them as they are misleadingly bright without the heat
