These guys seem to have some stunted growth from being in that shitty rock wool dish setup I had but they are making up for it now that they are in the air pots. I transplanted them into sunshine #4 because my other plants have had problems with N tox in coco loco, the only other soil mix I have...probably won’t ever be using fox farm soil again. Too expensive for what it is and it’s a pain in the ass dealing with nute probs.
Day 8: into the new grow tent tomorrow

Grow Questions
LumberjackBuds week 3 started grow question 11 months ago
So a bunch of my babies are getting this extreme leaf curling. It happened when the lights were off for only like 3 hours. Could it be windburn or Humidity? Nothing is out of whack in the Grow room temps were under 80 and humidity was >70 because I have a dehumidifier. Thanks

Hi @LumberjackBuds! Actually I think it's a combo: overwatering + high humidity + heat. I've experienced similar conditions in the past and also had this kind of leaf-curling. Also, I've seen you got some brand new QuantumBoards, be careful as they often came dimmed at 50%, but you need them dimmed around ~25% to avoid any light-stress for your babies. It seems that over-lighting is really a thing with QBs! So in this scenario I would reduce the light power, put a fan blowing around the pots to dry them quicker, maybe increase the light distance a bit, and see how it goes. Hope this helps, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

Your groom is great, what’s the floor made of?

Not yet I might build something. I could put down my heating mat too but right now the temp in there is high enough to keep the floor okay

@LumberjackBuds, I thought it was concrete just making sure.
Ok, do you have something on the flor between the pots and concrete? Concrete floor cold for plants, especially fabric pots:+1::skin-tone-3:

@PharmaZ, Concrete thankfully. It’s original purpose was to be a mud room, for after you come in from skiing/playing outside

@Stick, I think you’re right. For a while they were getting a sealed room with hot stagnant air. Plus the light is probably too close. Will the leaves recover? Edges feel a little crispy to the touch

I’d be building some run off tables with a long plastic pan underneath for catching run off you could have a great drain to waste system. And would save you getting on your knees or bending over. It’s all in my master plan for my next place:+1::skin-tone-3:

@PharmaZ, I wish I could find two meter wide containers/dishes or whatever you could call it. My grow room is exactly 4 ft by 8 ft. Maybe I’ll build it with some plastic material. But for now I have dishes for every pot and the floor is concrete so it’s not a big deal to spill. What kinda DIY contraption do you have in mind? I’d just need to find the plastic I suppose. I water with a long nozzle sprayer but yeah it can be a pain when I’m training or inspecting

I suffered the same misfortune. All my fast buds are stunted and that’s from a poor transplant on my behalf.

They’re finally picking up but theyre behind by aprox 1 weeks worth of growth. At such a young age it can be detremantal to the over all growth, size and yield. It’s crucial not to overwater at this stage, you want her searching for the water, most people kill plants that are in this state by over watering thinking the more water the faster. Small plant in a big pot needs little water les frequently. 1L max should take 1 week to need to water again, in my environment at least. Sorry for the long post just trying to offer some advise as I know how frustrating it can be to have a slow ass plant when our know she could be 2,5,10x.... times bigger :v::skin-tone-2:

@LumberjackBuds, your grow room is amazing man! I would love that space!

@PharmaZ, yeah it was a terrible system. I was just delaying the repotting lol! What do you think of my ‘grow room’?

@LumberjackBuds, that’s a point you have to water Rockwool every day but your not soaking the medium right...
