Cheers Yall'

Sara and Munzy my friends this it the status of my plants. I am watering every second day PH 5.8 EC 1.3
Only one of the 9 plants is recovering. I have no idea what to do with the others


As you can see plants are still looking like this. Do you think I'll ever manage to get the in the right track?


Plants are looking like this still very yellow and with no bud =(


This is the only one that's still performing.



Do you guys think i should bin the plants?
I feel like shit this grow is the worst grow of my life. Man.... =(

do not bin your plants i would let them dry out completely before watering again, feel the weight of them and wait untill they are very light even if this takes 4,5,6,+ days IMO your rootzone is TOO wet

Ditto, I agree with Munzy here... let them dry off more before watering again.

Cheers Munzy and Sara

I'm doing as you say so today will be 2nd day without watering!

I feel so sick coz I was doing like I did the all the other grows!! I'll update tomorrow and post all the status.
2 plants seem to be already in the late stages of flowering while others are in the beginning!

Last summer I grew one automatic plant and I watered like this and the results were fantastic! I'm really questioning myself if there's any other thing wrong!! This time I choose smaller pots, about half the size! last time I used 11L and this time I'm using 6.5 L!

Thx for all the feed back and post again tomorrow

Peace and health

I wait until the top surface of the coco has dried off and changed to lighter colour before watering.

6.5L pots maybe a little small? 1.3EC seems low for plants of such size ? what nutes are you using and how much per L?

i use 7.5L airpots with coco and some times i water every day.. with 4 plants id use 10L of water..

Cheers yall my friends!!!

Thx for the reply Sara!! I honestly have no idea where I am failing! It's not my first or second coco grow!! I was wondering can it be the coco? Can the coco have some problem or something?

As you can see in the pics plants are slowly coming back on track but one of them is almost done.










this is the plant I think is ready to be flushed!! The other ones are still delayed!!



And this pic represents something really strange for me. As you can see the 3 plants on the back seem ok! not perfect but ok compared with the others! I'm treating all plants the same and only those 3 on the back kept on growing and the others are getting yellow!!! What can be the cause for this??


Cheers BG it's really nice to hear from you!!! How are you doing??? I hope all is well and I really hope you guys can help us to solve this economic crisis!!!


Billy Bong I agree with you I I also think pots might be too small. Last summer I grew one auto-flowering plant and I used 11L pots. When I harvested I came to a conclusion that I was waisting coco, water and nutes coz the roots didn't use all the space in the pot! So that's why I tried about half size!

What you think about EC Munzy you think 1.3 is too low? I mean plants have about 50 - 60 cm height!!!

Great to hear from you all guys!!!

i dont use an ec meter anymore so i looked back over an old grow diary i did. when my seedlings had two sets of proper leafs i was feeding them .9EC. if i remember corectly my tap water is around .5EC..

if its not a nute lock out are the plants using up the food from the leafs ?

Cheers folks!!

I forgot to put this pic on my last update so here it goes:

This pic is related to the last paragraph



Should I increase EC??

I never water my plants with EC higher than 0.6 at this stage. What do you think guys?

How much nutes are you giving per litre of water? I don't know ec values.. How much water are you giving these plants in the last picture?

On my first grow I was overwatering and they looked similar to what yours look like.

I have no idea Billy. I water those plants with EC 0.7 ATM. And I also think it's quite impossible to be overwatering. I let them dry a lot. Actually I never ever let plants plants dry as much as I am doing ATM so honestly I have no idea =/

Doctor Munzy can you make a diagnosis please?

a friend is having this problem with his plants, similar problem that your having i think.. hes growing in organic soil. its his first time using this soil. it says the soil has enough nutes to last 5 weeks these are in week 4. he has not used any nutes yet... my advice to him was to start using nutes..

munzy telling you to feed 1.0EC and thats what you were feeding your flowering plants.. so please listen to him and start feeding more. not much will happen if you over feed unless you go crazy with the nutes.. when leaves show nute burn then start to ease off..
