Im really new to this, and i know that you cant really tell the sex untill flowering, but here are my plants 1.5 months into veg, any idea what they might be?
Do you have a fan in your grow room blowing on your lights and plants? If not you should think about getting one. Not only will it help with cooling your light but it will also help strengthen the stems on your plants. Steaking means putting a piece of wood or something in your pot and tying your plant to it for support.teckS said:The lights are fairly close.. buti dont know how close to put my spot-gro because it gets fairly hot.. its about 8" away right now.. is that too close or too far? and what does "streaking" mean? sorry about because a fricken nub at this lol
I myself would try and put the fan more on the light to keep your plants from burning. Try and put yor fan so its aiming on the light and the plants both but more on the light. This is what i do. Hope this helps ya out. If not we will try something else.teckS said:I do have a fan blowing in the grow room, i can point it more towards the plants if that would help. IF i point it directly on the plants then bend a bit but dont fall over, the root system and stem are pretty strong. I moved the light a little closer this morning and its not burning the plants. Would it be a good idea to "streak" the plants and then turn the fan more towards them or put it on a higher setting??
This what i do. Take your hand and place it right above your plants palm down so your hand is touching them. Lower your light until it feels luke warm on the back of your hand. If it feels hot then you have the light to close. Hope this helps ya.teckS said:How can i tell if my plants are getting too hot? i know the temperature range i should be in but i dont know how close i can put my light without harming the plants.. i dont really want to experiment cuz they i could burn them.. are there early signs of overheating like wilting of something?
Not sure teckS. Can you get a close up pic of the problem?teckS said:ok i did that and set the light to the right height.. i have one problem with my plants... some of the leaves.,, maybe 2 nodes down from the top.. look like they have a bite taken out of them, they look really healthy, very green, no brown or yellow spots, not even the line where the bite is has a brown outline, so it makes me think its just a deformity.. but caused by what? genetics? my nutrients?
Whats up teckS. Well as you said you over used your nutes early on. I think you may be right. I would just give them plain water for now and see what they do the next few days.teckS said:k here are the pics.. the strange cut is the first pic the second 2 are some other problems i had early on but did not carry on to the upper leaves, all of these problems are old and only on lower leaves i just want to know how to avoid it in future plants
I think the last 2 pics are nute burn because i over used my nutes early on.. i may be wrong tho.. lol im stil really new to this. but its fun as **** !
Hey teckS, good to meetcha. Hey, don't feel bad about making mistakes on your first grow. We all did. I know of no one who got it all right on the very first grow. You should have seen my first inside grow. I gaffed up the flowering real bad. ****, I'd only done outside grows at that point and I really didn't know crap about inside grows. We all learn as we go.teckS said:anybody? whats wrong with my plants
