  2. all the other plants are doing great except 1 purple widow seedling, which is not growing at all. The second set of leaves are just staying the same size, idk whats wrong with it. Its really dark green and has barely any yellow on it. i don't think its over-watering or under-watering because it got soaked for a few days ago and now the soil has been completely dry since yesterday. so idk lol maybe it has some sort of midget syndrome haha.
     
  3. all the other plants are almost twice the size than the one that is not growing, the third second set of leaves will just not develop. i waited to the soil was really dry and then i watered and still no luck. maybe its just a bad seed...
     
  4. im not a pro and my girls are just 9 days old, but the first thing everyone is going to ask you is, whats your pH? if its too low or high the plant may not be taking any of the nutrients in the soil
     
  5. yea thanks for replying bro and yea thts a good idea, but i just ordered a ph control kit right now so ill know soon haha. all the other plants are doing great, i kno its not the best, but for now im using MG soil but when i transplant im gonna go pick up some organic soil.
     
  6. yea i used mg for like a day and transplanted to ffof, i only had one in the MG and its by far the weakest one right now despite beign a week older than her sisters. I would stay away from MG at all costs
     
  7. yeah bro i see what you mean. Does lowes or home depot sell foxfarm soil or some other good organic soils?
     
  8. no you gotta look for the nearest hydro store, you can find it cheaper online but not after shipping because shipping a bag of soil is expensive.
     
  9. here is what a local hydro store has.
