Seed in my weed by smeagle - Fri, 13 Oct 2017 18:10:48 EST ID:paCUvU57 No.145480 Ignore Report Quick Reply

2-3 weeks ago i found a seed in my weed. I decided "why the hell not" . So i planted in a decent sized pot, with flower soil, fertilizer included. had it under a halogen light for the first 1 1/2 week. This week bought a Led grow light, pretty sexpensive. Does it look ok to be around 3 weeks old? Should i tranplant it not or wait. got no idea what the roots look like at this point, dont even know how to lift it all out of the pot.

thankfull for tips and stuff. And i know i want a female. but a male could work too. how many grams yield am i looking at if its a male? think in terms of cannabutter.

Had my desk fan on it for a day to simulate wind, hopefully strengthen the stem. Came home after work to find it lying down completely, filled the pot with more soil to get it upright,

i was thinking of getting some foil to put around it to bounce the light around after i transplant it.

You will probably want to use better soil.
Also, how many watts is the LED rated at?

Looks pretty small as another poster said.
How "into it" are you looking to get?
I don't really know much about lights anymore especially as the technology, with LED's has advanced pretty rapidly.

You can go to your local garden center or hydro store and pick up some mylar or, what I used for my first grow, white plastic polysheeting or whatever its called. Apparently white is ment to be just as good as using foil, if not better. Unsure about mylar though.

You can find out if its a male or female by simply switching up the light schedule. Once plants are in 12 hours of dark and 12 hours of light daily they start to show sex, after around two weeks.
What light schedule do you have them on now?

Is this plant 2-3 weeks from popping out of the ground or 2-3 weeks in the soil from seed, ungerminated?

Just a get the highest actual wattage E27 LED spot you can find, doesn't have to be a "plant light". 5w is reeeally low. The plant doesn't stay up in wind because it has a weak stem due to lack of light.

its on 16/8 right now. Im into it enough that i'd like it to get some yield. BUt some have said that its a weed so it should be easy to grow, and its hardy. I\ll get a stronger light. This 5W one was realy expensive tho. 2-3 weeks after starting the germination. after the tail popped i put it in the soil.

Also. I dont wanna switch to 12/12 too early. would rather keep it 16/8 for as long as possible for best results

you wont get any results with that kind of lighting
you are trying to grow a tree in candle light

OP you need a bare minimum of 150, more like 200 watts on the plant to actually get any real yield. 5W is nothing. You need to be running it near 24/7, don't worry about cycling night until later in the veg, or even the bloom cycle. Light = growth.

The fan is clearly too strong, either back it way off, or hold off on it for another 2 or 3 weeks.

The soil looks to be below average quality, you should be watering it every 2 or 3 days, depending on how dry the soil gets. Just stick your finger in the side and hopefully it's moist to the first knuckle. Make sure there's drainage or else bad shit can happen, just drill some holes in the bottom and maybe put a piece of perlite above them before putting the plant back in the pot.

Also, with premixed soil, the fertilizer can sometimes be too much. These seedlings don't really need that much in terms of nutrients, and every time you water, the nutrients will be leeched out, so I would advise you to brew some fertilizer tea in the future, or at least buy some liquid nutrients.

Good luck.

Depends on your definition of real yield is. To someone that only smokes occasionally, 50g is plenty and can be achieved with way less than 100w.

He is lucky to get 1,5gram
you need some decent light to get to the lower branches otherwise only the top will power the plant

1000w will get you around 500g. A 100w UFO light will work 1ft away from the light. Measuring your light / reflector is a better way of seeing how much bud producing area you have.

Heres an update 1 week later. im just abour ready to move it over to a 25cm diameter plastic jar. gonna have to wait till payday to get a better light. I'd assume a 45euro led light meant for plants would be pretty good. go figure

It's stunted slightly from putting nutes into it at such a young age. For the same reason you don't feed an infant steak and potatoes, you should never give any NPK nutrients to a plant that doesn't at least have it's 3rd set of leaves. Worm castings and mushroom compost are okay to use but put them further down into the planter mixed sparsely with the other soil so the plant has time to acclimate and reach it's roots down into the more nutritious soil. If you haven't already transplanted it, drill a few holes in the bottom of the cup so the roots don't die from waterlogging. When you go to transplant it, mix about 20-30% perlite by volume into that soil for the same reason, it doesn't look like there's any in there.

No It's not. Because most people don't grow in an industrial style 365 days a year what counts is what you get for each grow.
In addition good strains yield the same independently of how long they take.

Read up on the gramm per watt debate on icmag or something if you don't believe me.

Also its decidedly female. Im 99% sure. the small pistils that become the buds are pointy and long and not small and round.

It's looking great now, right before the stage it's at now, like a week prior, is when you can start to feed it a complete veg formula and not have to worry about it being stunted. That plant in week 5 is what most should look like in week 4.
