- May 2nd, day 37 -

Changed all the pots today. Using Plagron Royalmix as soil.
Tangerine Dream is now in her final 12L Gronest air pruning pot. Laughing Buddha, Liberty Haze and CBD Lemon Potion are in 3L pots. Still keeping pots small because I can't move them outside yet. I will just plant them straight into these 3L pots next time though.

- May 1st, day 36 -

Apart from LSD all of the plants have started to look so much better over the past week. LSD only started to look worse by the day so I've pulled her. Luckily Barney's Farm has offered to send me some new seeds so I'll be germinating another LSD as soon as it comes in the mail

I flushed the pots with 6.5 pH water after I received my pH meter last week and I have only given them 1ml/L Power roots and 2ml/L Alga grow in 1 watering out of 3 since the flush. They seem to love it and are growing healthy and bushy fast now. I won't be home for a couple of days but I am going to transfer them to their second-last pots as soon as I get back. Feel like I already should have but I simply couldn't find the time.

Autoflowers

Tangerine Dream: Is starting to show its first pistils too now. Has grown a lot the past week and is looking a lot healthier than before.

CBD Lemon Potion: Somehow seems to be completely staggered in it's growth for the past 2 weeks and is flowering while it's about 12cm tall. Not expecting any decent yield from this but we'll see.

With this whole grow being a learning experience for me I've already taken some notes for next year. They seem pretty obvious in hindsight but I guess I'm learning the hard way

- Planting auto flowers early March is way too early for my climate. Not enough sun hours, too cold.
- When picking auto flower strains I should take a better look at seed to harvest time. 8-9 weeks is way too short for an outdoor grow with very little influence on grow conditions, even closer to summer.
- Also take a better look at climate preference, mold resistance etc. Not that I've had any problems with this so far but I didn't pay much attention to it when picking seeds this year either
- Be more prepared. Have all the pots, nutrients, seeds etc. ready before I start germinating. At least I'll have the reusables like pots and pH meter for next year. This way I won't have to change the pots more than I have to.

Will update and upload more pictures when I'm back home in 2 days.

Grow Questions
Sauswaus week 5 started grow question 3 years ago
Cant find pH section. Leaf edges are burnt. Working on a student budget, had to postpone buying pH meter. Local tabwater is 7,03 - 7,74 according to internet. Ill be adjusting pH starting Thursday. Can I go to 6.0 straight away or should I go down in steps of say 0.2 to adapt
Resolved
Leaves. Edges burnt

Go straight down man, no need to do it gradually. You can also use baking Sosa to raise ph and lemon juice to lower it.
Sauswaus week 9 started grow question 3 years ago
Lower two sets of fan leaves have gone yellow, leaves on internodes in between haven't changed colour. Not sure what's causing this. Nutes? (3-4 more weeks of time released nutes in soil) Too much water? Did water a bit extra because I wasn't going to be home for a couple of days

Hey bro! Looks like Nitrogen diffiency my friend, Nitrogen is mobile so it will gradually move up the plant from bottom to top.. You don't want this, especially in veg. Try to raise your N or use some Bio bizz fish mix or garlic beast as a foliar spray, 2ml per litre is good. A couple of times should do the trick. Keep your Ph between 6.3 and 6.8. Water a couple of times with water at Ph 6.5. Then go back to your normal nute schedule. Only water your plants when dry. You'll be fine :blush:

Happy growing :sunglasses::seedling:
