Grow Questions
Proto420 week 3 started grow question 2 months ago
Watering
Plants seem to respond oddly to watering…. It’s like they look like they want water, but then when they get it, they act like they don’t want it… super weird. Maybe since I’m new I don’t have the knack for knowing how much to give them ¯_(ツ)_/¯

It looks like you are growing in soil. Stick your finger in the dirt. If the soil is wet before you get to the first knuckle do not water. If you hit moist soil when your finger is between the first and second knuckle it is time to water. If your finger goes in to the second knuckle and the soil is still dry you should water more frequently.

I met this kid yesterday that said he waters his plants every day and not to LST. My plan was to make the plants grow in a spiral essentially.

I just wanted to hear everyone else’s opinion on this kids statements. He has like 2.5 grows under his belt where I only have .33 grows.

Lst for maximum canopy exposure, don't water everyday because that doesn't let the roots stretch to search for water and expand. You want to find a good watering schedule for your plants, let the soil dry out but not completely. You'll see your plants slightly droop, then water and they will perk up after 15 mins. Its something you practice to master. I've seen plants that get hand watered everyday and it's not beneficial. But a soil/coco on a drip system getting watered everyday on a timer does work.

Excessive nodes and autoflowers
My plants have SO SO many nodes. In my opinion they have way way too many branches. Is there anything at all I could do as far as cutting/pinching, some of them off? They’re autoflowers and I’ve only really found people saying don’t do it.

It's to late to do it now. If you do it will stress the plant out a lot because its already into flowering. If you have a fast growing autoflower that responds well to training, you want to do all your training before you hit the 2nd week of flowering.

I do heavy training, lollipop, defoliation. I try to do everything during vegetation stage for Autoflowers.

Check out my OG Diesel Kush autoflower diary. I did a lot of cutting and training to it.

Nutes, burn, losing leaves, end of flower, home stretch.
Any suggestions on how to proceed? Like I said I’m losing leaves left and right, I have seen multiple other people complaining about this strains finicky sensitivity to nutes.

Also Like 3 or mine are already showing amber trich’s, 3 lack trichomes entirely. Progressive harvest?

If leaves are coming off rapidly it’s likely ph issue causing lockout. I’m in hydro but just had the same issue. Hope you get it sorted.
gmslave answered grow question 1 month ago
Likely your ph is out either in the soil or your reader. Do a proper calibration and check the runoff waters ph and ec levels. Cheers
