Hi all, Thought I'd join the club and post a few pics and journal of my first ever attempt from a couple of feminized seeds I got free from a mate. This is purely an experiment really as I don't know the first thing about growing plants of any kind but thought I'd give a try and see what happens. Both seeds were potted on 15th April in the black pots shown in the pictures, the soil is 'multipurpose compost for seeds and seedlings' from a nearby garden centre and I put two Miracle-Gro All Purpose Continuous Release Plant Food Tablets in each pot (these supposedly last 6 months?). They both popped their heads through the soil on 20th April with Jack Diesel slightly ahead of Vintage. At the time I had no propoer lighting so they sat on my balcony/by the balcony door (depending on weather) and were receiving direct sunlight from about 7am to midday (on a good day) . I was actually very surprised that even worked, but I just watered a little daily and slowly but surely things began to happen. By 24th April both had started to grow their first leaves, JD still ahead of Vintage. by 6th May JD had well and truly taken the lead with a second pair of primary leaves developing and two more secondary sets (JD pictures only below) Skipping forward to around 10th May, I got hold of a 125w maxibright CFL 6400k and put both plants under the light, making a make shift grow box under a storage unit covering the timber walls with tin foil (as its all I have to hand at the minute!). I generally switch the lights on at around 7:30am and it stays on until around 11pm at night, so roughly 15-16hours of light per day. By 15th May JD was looking like this: Soon as pay day arrives i plan to improve my grow box, look in to buyiny some nutes and get a ph tester for the soil an water, but so far i think the plants have grown pretty rapid in about 6 weeks? However, my concern is that over the past week the leaves have started to look a little leathery, wrinkled and a little droopy (but that's mainly after watering) i've read this could be to nutrient deficiencies? The bottom leaves are also losing colour, and are a lighter shade of green on the verge of starting to look a little yellow. Comparison of JD and Vintage below: JD Left and Vintage on the Right: At the moment I am watering every couple of days, re-watering once the top inch or so of soil is dry. I generally put just under half a pint of tap water in each. Unfortunately the pots don't have holes in the bottom and I dont want to risk disturbing the plants by drilling a hole in while they are still potted? Looking a the pics, can anyone advise how well they think these are going and what I could do to prevent further wrinkling? I know the tap water in my area in pretty hard, normally 7-8ph so maybe that needs addressing? I also have a 3000k 125w CFL for flowering, when do you think I should be changing over? Any help would be most appreciated!
