my plants are tiny

Recommended Posts

Hey there lovemebucket, I'll move this into the general growing forum for ya. ;)


But yeah, those plants sound like something is definitely wrong. Could be any number of things, but the most efficient way to find out what's wrong would be either to show a pic, and describe the entire growroom/environment, as well as the history of the plant and what you've done to it. That will make it much easier to id the potential prob.


Don't worry, mj plants are fairly tough, although if you've been growing them for 2 months and they're tiny it may be better to just start again afresh. We'll be able to give you a better opinion on the subject after you've given a little more information, and ultimately a pic.


In the meantime, check out the growfaq, consider all the potential problems in the major categories, (air, water, light, nutrients, medium, ph etc...) and through a process of elimination you should find the problem. ;)


Hope this helps, and I'll look forward to helping your bubs either put out, or shove of and get yourself some new bubbas to sprout and grow. :D Talk to you soon. ;)

That light might be too close. I had the same problem with a 400W HPS at 100cm. I've moved it 130cm away and they seem to be recovering.


I think Fluro's are better to start seedlings. You can keep the light close and avoid them stretching.


P.S. best not to start on the nutes until the cotyledon leaves (the little round ones) have turned yellow, and even then best to start them at quarter strength and build up.

how old is yer globe in yer light? at 80cm for a 2 year old globe that would be like giving them a miniscule amount of light

Place your hand on the highest part of your plant & lower the light till it feels comftable. Plants like tempreatures that humans are comftable in, so use the back of your hand (knuckle side towards light) to see if the heat off the LIGHT is not too hot. Remember to leave your hand under the light for ten minutes, your plants well be under the lights for long periods.


MODS & MEMBERS, correct me if im wrong.


~ peace out
