Ocean Forest is a full Fertilised Soil. There i a whole inside, bat guano,crab-and fishmeal etc. i think its to hard for your "youngster" She got to much nutrients in the early stage and the effect you see now... it takes time that you see the whole desaster. Bat Guano is a hard stuff fish-and crabmeal got a lot nutrients.
I would say its the soil its good for a big plant but not for such a young seedling. and its related to the strain, some can handle the nutrients better than the others. I use Biobizz Lightmix, and Biobizz allmix. I fill the pot with the allmix, then i dig a hole in the middle, and fill it with lightmix. so the young seedling gets only light nutrients, and if its getting bigger , it gets the "bigger" nues from the other soil.
I would recommedn you to transplant her into a light fertilised soil. You can use the ocean forest later. THappy growing

Fox farm ocean forest is what I am working with as well. Yeah nutrients are heavy as is, and a plant will only drink all the nutrients within 30-50 days. Most likely the plant hasn't really "gripped" the soil well yet. The plant is also pretty small for the pot, I would just do a bit of flushing to make sure it isn't the nutrients, Goodluck man =)

Ive used O.F with good results but all plants are different so you cant rule out anything. However youre rockin a 1000 light, thats strong, especially at 20 hours. Whats the distance? Sometimes the lights can slow things down or stretch them out depending on distance. Lights can also cause spotting, curling and other signs of stress, especially LEDs which vary from light to light. Best of luck happy growing.

Hi @DrDank22! Well, my guess is that the soil is too hot for such a young auto-flowering plant. According to the manufacturer, this soil is rich enough for seedlings and small plants/vegetables, so I guess it's too rich for an automatic cannabis plant (autos don't need anything but root-booster for the first days). I have to say I really don't like when the brands don't clearly explain what's in their mediums and at what percentages. As an emergency move, I'd try to flush the medium the hardcore way (under the shower!!) until every nutrients it may contains are gone. Then, help it dry by putting a fan blowing straight to your container for a few days. Finally, plan a feeding strategy you can control, with the help of well known cannabis fertilizers. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

hey man I had the same as you. basically you underwatered slightly then overwatered slightly then underwatered slightly. This made the PH of the soil fluctuate in a way that caused the plant to show symptoms of a bunch of different things like too much nutes and not enough nutes. You need to water more regularly. everything will sort of normalise itself after a while. Take it easy man, once you dial in these first three weeks it's smooth sailing from here !

Hello @DrDank22 ! This problem is not cause by the soil ( although the soil is heave ). If it was from the soil it would have happened earlier. Also i can see phosphorus deficiency maybe a little calcium and some tacoing not burned leafs or clawing ( there are a few burned tips but its possibly a potassium deficiency starting ) . I can also see some droopy leafs..... I am pretty sure your problem is under water .Give it a good watering until you have a little run of. Then lift the pot and feel the weight. When it feels light water again. Do a good watering and it will be ok. Happy growing ! :facepunch:
