Scrumpy started grow question 3 years ago
Into week 4 now and looking at other blue mystic journals, she seems kind of stubby and slow. Im guessing this is down to pot size and other novice parts I've played. Any advice or comments would be great.

What a sweet little plant! Your leaves are a nice color, but the curling/drooping is definitely of concern. I would move the LED higher if possible (although I know that's tricky in a micro grow!) as blurple LEDs can definitely damage plants if left too close. 10-18 inches is generally a good range with LEDs. Make sure your watering is on point as well, as I could also see overwatering causing the issues you are experiencing. I like lifting the plant's pot and judging the weight (water when the pot is nice and light) or by sticking my finger in the soil (dry down at least and inch or so). For nutrients, I would try Megacrop as a very easy, economical, all in one. It very very cheap and is powdered (easy to ship if you want to buy online) but still great quality. https://greenleafnutrients.com/product/mega-crop/?v=3e8d115eb4b3 There are some great grows out there from people only using Megacrop. I wish I had known about it for my first grows. Hope that helps!

Whats up Scrumpy, looked at the info you’ve inputed and what I noticed first was your light distance. Let the plan grow into the light and not the opposite. I’ve done the same. 6” is way to close unless your running CFL or T5s. Your humidity and temps are good. As for the tomato supplements, yeah ok, I guess its better than nothing but if you are comparing to others on here generally we are all using nutrients designed for cannabis so its not quite the same but will still boost your plant. The fact your leave are drooping like that almost seems like they are in desperate needs of watering considerong your soil looked dry in the picture, if I’m mistaken then let that soil dry up and don’t let your roots suffocate/drown if you know what I mean. Move that light and those tops should be stretching this next week. Let me know if you need further assistance, Peace!

Hi mate @Scrumpy they don't look too bad for their age except you may have overwatered before taking the picture
leaves look a little drooped and clawed in shape. Air flow is a very important aspect of your grow, Do you have an
oscillating type fan inside the tent?? If not get one to allow more airflow within the grow area Other than that
they should be good to grow :+1:

Most everything looks pretty good on the grow. I think the size has something to do with your light distance. All led manufacturers vary but 6 inches is pretty close. If you raise your light to about 12 inches and monitor them you will probably see some better growth. Then adjust it up or down from there. I see some curling on the leaves also which could be from too much light intensity in this case. And the tomato food will probably work well but I would get a good stand alone nutrient like maxibloom if possible. Good luck with the rest of your grow
