WEEK 5 : 2018/04/28 to 2018/05/04
Day 29: Nothing to declare
Day 30: Defioliated a bit. A lot of buds start to appear. I think the LST worked quite well
Day 31: Stopped nutes & watering for a few days, as advised by other growers on GD
Day 32: Nothing to declare
Day 33: Dry soil, yellow leaves. Flushed soil with 10L of water to heal nute overdose. Moved the plant away from the LED (from 20cm to 25cm)
Day 34: Sun bath & fan pointed to soil to remove water excess caused by the flush
Day 35: Nothing to declare

Grow Questions
AxlWeed week 5 started grow question 4 years ago
Day 30, a lot of small buds start to appear. Do you think i should change the growing nutes to bloom ones now ? Thanks for any advice, i'm new at all these things.

See those leaves with a claw like shape? That's nutrient overdose. I would flush the media and let the plants consume what's on their leaves for a week before starting nutes again. Also get a PPM/EC meter, that will help a lot in how much to feed without guessing, specially in a micro grow when a couple of drops can put the feeding strength from ok to too much (I do microgrowing too).

And to answer your question (if you didn't have nute overdose), you would want to keep using the grow nutes until the stretch is done and start the bloom ones between the 2nd or 3d week of flower, when you notice the first signs of P-K deficiency on the lower leaves.

Hey there the guide I just looked up showed a feeding schedule of micronutrients, grow, and bloom all together for 1st 5 weeks of growing on 12/12.

Oh also the guide was a 12 week guide, the 1st 4 being micro/grow, the 2nd 4 weeks being all 3, the last 4 weeks or so being micro/bloom. I hope that helps

@Experimentgreen, Yes, first grow ! for the moment i stopped watering it, as 2 growers told me i'd better to. Next time, i'll add a bit of Bloom :) Thanks again for the advice

@AxlWeed, yes definitely, your buds will thank you for it I'm sure, especially since they're looking so good! A little bloom in there and those babies would explode! Being an auto strain though maybe start with half the recommended dose just to introduce them. :) I think everyone is so impressed by your grow! If its your first ever you should totally enter for newbie of the month in may! If it'll be harvest time that is?

@Experimentgreen, ok, thanks for the info. If i understand well, I could blend a bit of bloom nutes in my grow nutes next time.

Looks like you may be watering too much. I had the same problem. My problem was with too frequent watering. Cut it back and see what happens. Looking good either way!

@AxlWeed, I don't know about nutrients at all as I don't use them, only water. The way I can tell they are being watered too much is they look heavy and sag a little, they don't have that "spring" to them. If you look at my diary, in like the second to sixth week the plants are droopy, heavy looking and eventually the leaves start to yellow and burn. I stopped watering for seven days until they were dry and light, now my watering schedule is about 1 quart until they are dry. Don't really stick to a timed watering schedule unless the soil is actually dried out. You want those roots to get a good breath in between each watering. Hope that helps you my friend.

@anahatagardens, OK, thanks for the advice ! I see what you mean: lot of small curly leaves. I've been giving it one liter every 2 days for the past 2 weeks, maybe i have to roll back to my "one liter every 3 days" schedule. Do you think it's time to switch to blooming nutrients or is it too early?
