I posted here earlier this year for some advice on my 1st grow, unfortunately there was an unexpected medical problem and I was unable to continue. I still have most of the seeds I bought then, unfortunately IDK which are which.
If i had to guess i would say it is the Rhino Cookies but only because of the extremely chunky fans and tight inter nodes. I actually want the fucker to stretch a bit before flip haha so I can hopefully take some clones.
This Plant is about 3 weeks old and it has been a little slow due to a number of factors (don't ask) but mainly due to shit coco that was so fine it would never drain. I am now using Nutrifield Chunky 50/50 Coco for this in a 5 gallon geopot. Looking back on in i should have stuck with soil (KISS etc.)
Started off under a 130w CFL in soil and then went outside for a week during daytime inside at night. This was when plant was most healthy tbh. I transplanted to a smallish pot in photo with some Cactus Mix soil (great stuff for bagged imo) , which is a shame because H&G has been really good before. After the transplant I put it under my 250w HPS about 30~ cm away, but it quickly outgrew that pot .
So I decided fuckit I will go LED so I just a couple of days ago FIM'D it and put up a MEIZHI 600W LED which people seem very happy (these chinese LEDs have come a long way recently but ideally it will be a veg light primarily....) with and I must say feels and looks a quality unit so far, unfortunately due to extreme back problems atm its very hard for me to adjust things like lights etc and It is way to close to the plants atm. At most MAYBE 35cm, which is real bright. Tomorrow i will try and get it further away and put it outside during the day again as it warms up. Heard horror stories about LED shock from mates and online :s
Using Canna Coco A+B, Silica, Calimagic, H&G Multizyme and some stuff called Professor's Nutrients Go Roots which the dude at the shop thought was more impressive and better value than Rhizo but idk. Feeding at 1.5-1.6 EC but unfortunately my bluelab combo ph meter probe decided to die right when i need it.
ANYWAY TL;DR, What would you guys do in my situation, keep it vegging, keep it tied? let it do it's thing??, and are there any immediate suggestions that scream uh oh fix now. Pics arent the best but ill get some DSLR photos tomorrow. Ive got 4 more very healthy seedlings doing very nicely atm so not super stressed about this plant but the dark green leaves and sort of tip curling is scaring me a little
ALSO I AM IN DESPERATE NEED OF SOME AIRFLOW BECAUSE THERE IS PRACTICALLY NONE INSIDE hence moving them indoors and out. Will be doing my best do rectify situation ASAP. Temps humidity etc are fine i think.
Attached are new seedling photos from tonight and 6 days ago before transplant, you can see she exploded in size heh.
If you read this bless your soul! Any advice would be so much appreciated! Gonna hopefully build either a COB LED or Quantum strip LED (which look amazing) if this works ok.
CHEERS AND STAY HIGH
