When transplanting, I noticed jus a few tiny little green spot inside the cup.. is this the start of mold, and if so should I be worried about these 2 plants? maybe its jus chlorophyll build up or something. the roots looked healthy and unaffected but just curious what yall think

cover up the pots.. algae only grows with light. shouldn't have light hitting roots. the ones that are exposed to too much light will differentiate into non-root cells. they will turn green like stems and at minimal not function as well as a root, if not ceasing completely with enough exposure.

algae isn't good, but it won't cause any major problem. it'll eat up N near the light exposed areas, but it won't grow into the medium where light is not available.

who knows, maybe the increased competition for resources is a net positive? wouldn't assume either way and wouldn't allow it to happen on a maybe.

According to your diary your lights are on 24hrs and your humidity is low. It's doesn't mention what Ph your water/feeds are. I would recommend dropping light time down to 20hrs, increase humidity to 50% or a little higher. Make sure watering/feeding Ph is in the soil range. Ph 6.0 to 6.8 Hope this helps.

Based upon your diary, you're running light 24 hrs. at 10". I'd say to much light. A little to close. You might want to consider that 18/6 schedule, and raise your light to about 14" for awhile. Probably better off being a little to far away rather than to close. Can always lower the light if the girls start reaching. Also, I see that you really increase your light intensity during flower. That's great, but kicking out that much wattage I'd really watch my light to plant distance. Nebula, from GWE (Grow weed easy) has an excellent write up on: "Too much light vs. Too little light." I'll see if I can locate a link for you or you can just Google GWE., and that article yourself. Hope this helps. Nice work man.:+1::smile::v:

where I topped my blue dream plant. I'm curious if I cut off the two main colas that grew from the topping if the plant will benefit? I want to keep it close to height with other plants but it is growing faster.

Let me put it another way- you have a very healthy blue dream that is going to get bigger and produce more bud than the rest of the plants but you want to cut it up and limit it to be as small as the weaker and less vigorous plants? When you get lucky and one plant is growing faster and bigger than the rest- you thank your luck and do ur best to look after that plant the best. it will produce the best buds of the crop and the most buds too- every time. Do what ever u can to keep this plant happy and if that means moving the other plants out of the way then do it!! it will be worth it in the end ok. Tie down her branches if needed and let her grow, she wants to show you how big and strong she is, so let her. Never limit the biggest plant to suit the smallest, ur better off ditching the smallest one and letting the big ones do their thing.

Nitrogen toxicity from feeding too much or too often, or both.
Watering every day is a no-no, you should only water once the soil has dried from the previous watering, and only once the soil is dry to about an inch down from the surface.
Feeding every three days in soil, even if only lightly, is too much.
In soil, a schedule of plain water/plain water/feed/plain water/plain water/feed is best, and so that your plants are only being fed every 10-14 days.
Soil "holds onto" nutrients quite well, so this is the reason for only feeding every 12 days or so.
Watering to run off is vital too, if you do not do this, nutrient salts will build up in the soil to toxic levels and cause burning, like your plants are showing the symptoms of. It is also the only way to know that water has penetrated the entire way to the bottom of the pot, where most of the roots are/will be going.
At this stage I would be only be giving plain water for the next 2-3 weeks or until healthy growth returns and not flipping to 12/12 until they have fully recovered too.
Once you resume feeding, keep in mind the time frame I suggested and I am sure thinghs will pick up.
Hope this helps, Organoman.

Yeah, you seem to have some nute problems there... have you checked the PH of your runoff? You say you had an issue with lockout - did you do a flush? PH should sit between 6.0 and 6.5 with the "sweet spot" being 6.3 - if you can get it there and KEEP it there, you might be able to keep this grow going. Have you checked out the trichomes? Are they starting to turn amber? The color of the pistils isn't what you want to judge harvest time on - it's the status of the trichs! You want to see about 30% amber. I'd personally do a bit of defoliation, get rid of the yellowing/drying fan leaves, make SURE the PH is within range and keep an eye on the trichs...

Good luck!
