1st time Indoor

Hello guys,

So I´m growing autoflowers for the 1st time indoor in a small tent (50x50x100) with the led light Mars Hydro T600 and a small pc fan for ventilation.

I got 4 fabric pots (3.8 litre) and Biobizz all mix. I got 3 successful germinations a week ago (Royal dwarf, Northern light and Royal Gorilla) and my questions are:

 

Shall I get a Ph meter to check the ph of the water?

I live in south London and I´m not sure if the tap water is good for the plants because I´m starting to see some white dots in the small leaves.

Not sure if it´s frome the Biobizz all mix soil, I read that can be too strong for the first weeks and can burn a little bit the leaves.

 

At what time shall I give some Biobizz nutrients to the plants?

2nd week? 3rd week?

 

I still don´t know how to post pictures but hope to do that soon. 

Thank you

Sounds like overwatering to me.

how often are you watering and how much?

 

Are you using phone or pc? 
 

e2a: no need to adjust or check ph with soil.

yes, I think so!

They look ok, they don´t look bad, I´m just worried if there was something to do with the Ph or the soil, I will do less watering next time to see how they react

Try to post a picture and I can give a more accurate diagnosis. Adjusting ph usually does more damage to soil than good.

there cool buddy. Just stick to a good wet/dry watering cycle for the next few weeks. Plants will tell you when there starting to get hungry at that point start feeding grow nutrients. You mentioned that you’re using biobizz, what ones have you got?

Biobizz have feed charts on there website. Start on half measures and work your way up, if you notice tips of leaves turning brown back off the grow a little bit. Two weeks after seeing buds starting to form start giving bloom as well as grow.

As for top max, some like it, some don’t. Ive used a bottles worth, I personally prefer not to use it, as I find it alters the taste of the finished product. I’m sure some will agree with me and others will not. I think it’s more of a preference thing.
