Newbie needs help

34 posts in this topic

Thank you for having me and hopefully someone with more knowledge than me can put my mind at ease haha.

 

So here's a bit about the grow

2m x 2m x 2m tent

1x 4 inch inline fan exhausting 

1x 4 inch inline fan inlet 

2x internal fan on low settings

3x mars hydro ts1000 lights started on 25% as seedling now lights are on 50%

Plants since seed hatched are 30 days old

Strain is stardawg autos.

I was just watering with tap water until I realised the pH was 8! So for the past week it has gotten pH 6.5 water as I use biobizz pH down.

I also add 1ml per litre of biobizz fix mix as feed every water. 

I am giving them approx 400ml of water every 3 days as the soil dries on the top only but always damp below.

Soil has lots of perlite in it. 

 

Lights are on 20 hours off for 4 hours

Lights are 25 inches from the tip of the plants

 

I had some extremely tiny white bugs and a week ago I sprayed the tent and plants down with Dr schimmel spider mite killer and no bugs seen at all since. 

 

So a rocky start 

 

Problem I am having and I have no idea if its normal but the new growth looks twisted and very thin leaves. Also just looking for a bit of comfort or criticism on how they look.

 

There is 13 plants in there I know this is to many but I have 2 other tents identical and will be splitting them all up in a week or 2 but was saving on electric while they was small. All tents have 4 lights in as will this one soon.

 

I have ordered some pipe cleaners as the ties in using at the moment I have very lose as there not ideal 

Thank you

I've removed those last 2 posts as we don't allow links to images hosted off site sorry mate.

 

There's a few guides on how to upload to your gallery here and it gets easier with practice.

 

 

I only scanned your first post sorry but the first thing I noticed was your extraction fan is way to small for a tent that size.  Your gonna get issues with temps/odours/humidity/fresh air if you don't upgrade that soon .

A 2m2 tent is pretty big mate.

 

Depending on your lighting and ambient temps I'd be opting for an 8inch/200mm extraction as a minimum. With a 6inch/150mm inlet fan.

 

2 x 4 inch fans won't shift as much air as a single high power 6inch/150mm fan even.  So short answer is no. Even 2 won't be enough.

 

You might get away with 2 4inch fans in the depth of winter and using minimum wattage lighting, but even that wouldn't be ideal.

 

Invest in a new extraction set up.  It's the one item of kit you don't wanna skimp out on man.  

 

It's the difference between jail and no jail and between a successful grow and a waste of time/leccy/investment. IMHO.

Regards pics, are you on a mobile? If so hit the menu drop down at the top right of your browser and select "desktop version".

 

Try following the guide then. See if that helps :yinyang:
