    Hey guys,

    A little background:

    This grow started as a clone in a rock wool cube. Planted in Ocean Forest soil and has been there for about a week and 2 days now. I have not been using any nutrients in any of my waterings, so I can't imagine it's nute burn.

    What I am experiencing right now is the tips of my new growth are exhibiting a slight yellowness and the main vein on the newest growth is showing signs of yellowing as well. Also, the newest growth is having some trouble flattening out its leaves. I have a fan blowing on my bulbs, which is reflecting wind onto the plants and thus causing a slight shake. I wonder if this has anything to do with it?

    Any ideas would be very appreciated.

    Feed them. I give new clones about 600 ppm right when I plant them in soil. I go 1000 ppm or more in hydro. FFOF barely has any nutes in it. It's ok for starting seeds, but clones need more.
    If you have a really fresh bag then it'd probably be ok. If it's been sitting it'll loose a lot of nutrients. Plus you don't even know how long they had it stocked in the store.

    A few years ago I did the exact same thing, and couldn't figure it out. I was flushing and everything. I just needed to feed in the end.

    Make sure you veg them for a little while so they can recover. If you flower right away they won't stretch or grow normally. They'll just stay the same height and start budding.

    I use liquid karma for the first feeding for soil, don't know how much, because I just add until my tds meter reads to where I want it.

    If you're looking for a rich organic soil then go with Roots Organic.

  3. Bro, thank you so much for answering. I had just watered her 3 hours ago, so I quickly ran to the store and got some Advanced Nutrients Sensi Grow A+B. Mixed up according to the bottle and am now hoping to see some good things happen.

    A quick question I have is: I noticed that the 4 ml per 1 liter of water requirement was quite large, as I only use about .5l of water per watering. Would it be safe to use 4 ml per 1 liter as a ratio and just do 2ml per .5l? Also, should I get started with a ppm meter instead? Do you have any recomendations?

    Thank you
