Not bad. And honestly, a little extra warmth can be good. Plants really have a temperature sweet spot and that might get them into it.

Any advice on what I'm doing wrong and how to correct it? The leaves just shriveled up, it happens on all my plants. Using organic nutes and coffee grounds on top of the soil. I don't give them much nutes, mostly just water.

Getting the plants wet (not just the soil like you should be doing) creates little magnifying lenses on the plant that fry the plant when the light is on.

Hello guys,

This is my first time growing cannabis and I had some seedlings growing for about a week and half without any issues but now recently this one has begun to start pointing her serrated leaves upward and also began to show a almost transparent light tan color on the leaves. The rest of my seedlings are doing well tho so I wanted to ask and see if anyone knew anything about it and what I could do.

60Jalapeno seedlings popped up a week or so ago and now the leaves are curling up and they have a slight brown/yellow color. Anyone know what could cause this? I thought it was light or temp. I've had them under a small led bulb, around 65F is the coldest it has been. I'm new to peppers and this was just an experiment. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I'm looking to pick up a new light and wanted to know which would be a better choice, the mars hydro 600w, or the mars hydro II 400w.

600w is cheaper but the reviews of it mostly say to go for for newer mars hydro II 400w. Is 400w with the better quality of the hydro II better than a 600w older model? I know nothing of lights.

I would say that both of the lights are going to be around the same intensity. The 400w I believe can get away with lower power consumption because of reflectors being used. This means it would save you just a bit more money in the long run. I've used their old 300w on a single plant and had a pretty decent harvest, around 4oz plus trimmings out of a small 14'' w X 14'' h white widow.

Low amount of light early on will bring out low potency phenotypes. If your plant isn't covered in trichomes in veg, it's not getting enough light.

I'm doing a ton of reading since I can legally grow now, but pardon my noobiness. I want to start growing in the beginning of January. My plan is to leave the plants outside until it gets dark, then bring them in so they continue getting light so they won't flower early. How much light will they really need just to not flower? Do I really need to invest in a light just for after sunset? Or will setting the plants near the lamp that is lighting the room anyways be enough? I live in southern california so temperature shouldn't be an issue.

fine, how about this then Mr. Perfectionist
the light is about 12 inches from the soil now. Any closer and the light doesn't hit all of the plants. By putting the plants inside I'm really just trying to prevent flowering, minimizing stretching comes second.

Unfortunately my back patio is pretty sheltered, so they don't get much wind either. I might have to start pointing a fan at them. Eh it's too bad it takes so much electricity to grow out of season.

I take it that's your setup? I didn't bother reading what kind of bulb that is, if you even posted those stats. If it's led or fluorescent then you want that bulb as close as you can possibly put it without the plant touching the actual bulb, like 2-5 inches away.

I grew weed once because somebody hit me an my gf up saying somebody they knew who grows had to move state and had thirteen two week old plants that needed taken care of. I had mevet grown anhthing in my ljfe before but I was like, okay. Ended up getting six plants of sour diesel and bought about three hundo dollars worth of equippy. I grew all six plants using three small fluorescent lights, then one 150 watt fluorescent, and one 125 wall fluorescent. It was a crash course grow op with a lot of fuck ups, but I ended up getting about five or six ounces of high quality bud.

Growweedeasy dot com. It did it. My plants survived a four day power outage in 40 degree fahrenheit weather and came back to be rank as fuck. Pic is related.

You said your plants seem way too tall for how old they are? They're stretching to try and get closer to their light source. You need to either get a more powerful light, or move the one you have closer. Dunno, m8.

This is my weed from my first grow for reference using slightly improper technique with basically crap lights.

>Is there anything I can do about the stretching?

Get some proper lights and grow them exclusively indoors if you're that concerned.. Stretching is bad for indoor growing because it's hard to get the light close to the lower nodes. People who grow outdoors don't give a shit about stretching, because it doesn't matter if the sun is 491,040,000,000 feet away from the lower nodes, or 491,040,000,004 feet away.

CFL's from a hardware store can be bought for pretty cheap and work well as supplemental lighting. It also probably costs you less than $1/month in electricity. 4 26w bulbs would be perfect for 1-2 young plants

Here the plants are now, about 3 weeks after sprouting. They look pretty good as far as I can tell. I have 10" terracotta pots to eventually transplant them into. I'll probably move them after another 1.5-2 weeks? I think they have space for now, but it's hard to guess if their roots are happy. I also have some all purpose fertilizer, which I plan to start applying starting at 5 weeks after sprouting, and then every 2 weeks after that.
