leaves problem, burn? Solved

by Arthur about September 6 - report

Hi guys,

Here are my Northern Lights Autos new photos. They were planted on 16th of August.
I have a few questions.

1) Are they grown good, big enough for this stage, age?

2) One of the plant (see the photo) have bright yellow some leaves ends. I have 600 watts LED and 20 watts LED. 600 is high enough and 20 watts I put too close to one of my plants. When I noticed yellow ends on the leaves I removed 20 watt led. Was is a burn? Both plants have the very same soil, watering, and everything else. I did not put any nutrients yet but going to start using Alaskan Fish Fertilizer once during veg. I have made a research on internet yesterday all day and seen some similar yellow leaves problems, Million guys have millions of opinions, too much nutrients, too much light etc etc etc. But why then one of my plant looks very healthy and the other one has yellow leaves ends?

3) Are my containers, pots are big enough for this stage? I guess they are 1-1.5 liter each. When or do I need to put my plants to a bigger pots?

Thanks guys. Peace.

    you started before you had your equipment.

    Don't transplant autos if possible

    pH is way too low

    plants look good

    I do not use veg fertilizers at all with autos. Soil should have enought nutrients until first pistils.

    I use FF Open Sesame,Beasty Bloon and Cha Ching for bloom

    From sprout at day zero feed roots. 

    There is more but why muddy the water.

      5. All three is best. OS is for stretch while BB is for miid flower and CC for finishing bud swell. They are not cheap bit very good.

      6. Roots need to be fed. O use Great White mycorrihaze but there are other product. Mycorrihaze is a fdungus but there are also bacteria so I use Canna Rhzotonic. Check justme comment or ask him. His product looks good but I have my own way.

    Each plant is like a human all different they have preferences, some like lots of nutes other do not. It really looks to me like you would maybe want to start fertilizing. Also make sure you never hit the leaves with the nutrient it will burn. They are looking pretty happy if you ask me. The pot size is ok but it is getting time to transfer. There is a slight problem ... It looks like there is a thrip on one of them. If you poke at them with a small stick they will run. Good LUCK! The Raven

    Your plants look good for their age but I would definitely get them into bigger pots now. I am not a fan of transplanting so the earlier you do it the better. You said you haven't gave her any nutrients yet so my guess is the leaf tip has so light burn. Looks like you are doing a good job!

      I am not a fan of transplanting neither. Can I keep the plants in these pots and giving them nutrients so they feel Okay? Is it really necessary to transplant 'em to bigger pots? Thanks.

      It is kind of hard to see from the angle of the photograph the exact size but I personally wouldn't want to grow in anything smaller than a 3 gallon pot. The bad thing about it is when you get root bound you will be in the middle of your flowering cycle a...  more

      I will not touch an auto, even a feminized seed is less robust and more unpredictable than a natural. As far as genetics... and not being consistant? You can never tell I always say... You can get the ugly sister from a beautiful stock or a gorgeous girl ...  more

    If you don’t monitor your ph your plants will look like crap throughout your grow. They’ll grow but they will have a lot of brown and rust colored leaves and your harvest will be greatly reduced

      And with a pot that small you won’t have much choice but to transplant. As soon as you get your ph straight and the plant looks healthy transplant

    I've been reading the above answers and for soil, your PH should be between 6.3-6.8, but 6.5-6.8 will work.
