Coco perlite first time grower

Discussion in 'Coco Coir' started by HammerCam, Jul 25, 2017.

  1. Grew a solid 4 month plant before finding balls on it :( . So back at square one for someone with very little knowledge. Any tips would be greatly appreciated! So here's my story in short, found (another) seed in my grinder so I said "oh what the heck" and planted it (while I wait for female seeds in the mail). My ideas for this unknown seed is to top it once able to--(someone help me out with this info). Also, it's been under an CFL light but just received purple grow lights today. How should I go about with the different lights? Also still on 1/4 nutes. One week old, when should I move to veg nutes? Last one, how do I strengthen the stem? Very flimsy.

    Thank you all!

    Had a similar mishap my first grow veg'd one for over 3 months and three for over a month and all four turned out to be male.. bought a fem seed the next day and started up my next grow the next week with gaurenteed females and some bagseeds to try again... got a 50/50 ratio 1 female bagseed 1 male so I flowered two plants and got a QP between the both of them with a mars 300 and 3 CFL

    My one tip is if you are set on continuing with bagseeds clone any females you get....also id out the light at around 18" for starters

    Would anyone recommend this? It's been a struggle when switching into 12:12 with the light in my room/ keeping it out of my closet door cracks. Figured this would cancel the hassle of moving the plant nearly every day. Any info would be great

  4. It'll flower one decent sized plant I'd recommend a 4'x2'x5' though as it'll do two plants and give you a bit more headroom

  5. Tent looks fine. Good for 1 plant as previously stated. Top at node 5. You're at 2 with 3 coming in now. Follow the manufacturers recommended light distances for your lights. And nutes are really not even needed at the point that little seedling is at. Personally I go no nutes for the first 2 weeks. Then about 250ppm for a week and slowly up the concentration from there. The plant will tell you what it wants.
    The stem will get bigger with time. You can use a silicate in your nutes if you aren't. It'll help the plant a ton.
