Total noob needs help with my second attempt at growing

  1. Hello all, this is my first post. This is my second attempt at getting a clone going.. my buddy gave me my first which wasn't dipped in any rooting solution.. long story short 2 weeks later no roots just a brown stem in dirt. After some research and alot of backhands to the head i got one to root. With a rooting solution in a small cube. it took almost 3 weeks to get to this point..
    Yesterday i moved her to a bigger pot with some decent soil.
    My 2 questions to you experts here is..
    1. As you can see in the photo the leaves are turning white. Is this normal? I've read that it is normal however there is so much bad info out there..
    2. Does it appear that this thing may bounce back? Below i've included the type of soil, my primative set up (if that's what you wanna call it) and a close up of where i would expect new growth to come from. Now that that area appears to be brown am i wasting my time? as a side note i put her outside this morning to try to stimulate here a bit with some better light..

  2. whoops forgot to get ya'll a picture of the soil i'm using..
    it's natures care from the home depot 20170724_165514[1].jpg
  3. Only thing now is to wait. That soil looks way to wet and compact. Try mixing perlite into soil before using for now on. Its probably suffocating. About 25 percent by volume at least.

  4. Figured someone was gonna say that. :) The picture was about 2 min after watering. I'm assuming that you think everything else looks good then?
  5. I mean not all clones survive or are the healthiest. Time will tell.

  9. Set up my auto mister from a lizard tank that I had years ago.. using it just to keep the humidity up. You can see that the original leaves dried up and died once there was new growth I pinched off the dead stuff [​IMG][​IMG]

  10. Looks like a revegged clone like if the clone was taken from a flowering plant
  11. Well when my buddy gave me this clone his was only at about week 10. He's about ready to flower his.. because I'm not seeing the sacs I'm assuming that this is just normal new growth.. unless you guys can tell me that this is a male for sure.

  13. One of the symptoms of ph issues is twisted or abnormal growth. That plant has been messed with too much. Looking at the original pictures the main grow top was removed before the plant had a second node.

    Don't overwater it. You want lots of aerating built into the soil and drainage combined with water holding capability so you have a soil that can breathe and remain damp for long periods at the same time. Generous portions of quality perlite are the key to achieving this. 15-20% perlite.

    You should be feeding between 6.2-6.5ph.
  14. Thanks for all the help ladies and gents.. my tap water is at 6.8 I'll be giving them their first round of nuts in about a week. I put in about 3 hours work yesterday putting in mylar and spent 100 on a new light.. the plant that has been the "root" of all my problems has been through a lot.. dropped (separating root from soil), put outside (burnt), overwatered, underwatered.. ex.. I'll leave yall with an update and try my best to move forward with what I have learned.. any and all input is greatly appriciated. thanks again. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
