Hard to tell much from the pics, but plants have their moods just like
If over watered, then let them dry out for a day or two and they'll perk back
What's the temp in the room? Do you have a fan blowing?

temps stay between 65 and 72 pretty steady. now my husband had said they looked over watered also last night I checked on them and they were dry about a half inch down into the soil so I figured water them and now this. maybe it is just a mood swing lmao I will see if I can get a picture without the led lights on them and post thank you all so much

I don't think my ph pen is working I know it's one of the most important tools to own. I've had it for a couple years so time for a new one is there a good sponsor site from GP that I can order from ?

The plants look fine to me, healthy and no real problems... one thing th@ helps is getting the feel for wh@ the pot feels like when dry, this allows you to judge if they are overwatered with little effort and on the fly.

Welcome to GP, Bloombud! You've got very good looking plants so far, no burn, overstretch or sickness evident, so no worries! A couple of things that help with growing under LED: the plants drink about half as much as they do under other lighting, and they need higher temps to help them transpire; high 70s, low 80s optimal. Soil needs to be better draining for the same reason; it's recommended to use up to 50% perlite with your soil/coco mix. Plants will need additional CalMag under LED, and even more if in coco. SO far, everyone's been right on; let the pots get very light before watering again and don't use heavy nutes with that watering as they'll drink it up fast. Watering @ correct pH is essential, especially with light system that depletes important nutrients quickly. A lot o science to say you're doing great, water less !

as they flower they naturally shed the lower fan leaves and use up all the goodness in those leaves. once they are all yellowed you can pull or cut them off to allow the light to shine on what they are shadowing now .Purficely natural for them to do this

thanx PB for the response it just seems a bit soon for some of them I noticed some of the yellowing started with the older leaves I first thought maybe its that time but talked myself into it may be something else as in lack of nitrogen over watered or some other force against me hahaha well I guess I should start my flush and get ready for the prize

Thanks for the update, BloomBud, I love the look of the plants under LED. +1 for Plant Boy's recommendation; got a ways to go, but it's the best part!
I grew out some autos when they first got hot @2009; still have some beans I got in Amsterdam of auto pineapple, diesel ryder, easy ryder, auto afghani, auto sweet tooth (not really auto). I liked 'em because they would go ahead and flower during the veg stage of my photoperiod plants, and be ready to cut by the time the others were ready to flower, providing some "meanwhile" bud. The diesel had incredible smells in flower, like sweet tarts, and the pineapple was a big, vigorous plant. But then people pointed out that I could do much better with photos, vegging them 2 weeks, then using 2/3 the electricity for flower with much better yield. Hence why I still got da beans;) Things evolve, though, and I bet since I tried em they've refined the autos quite a bit. Saw one called Muay Thai that grew HUGE outdoors and gave 33 oz. Easy 10ft plant.
Anyhoo, congrats on the healthy plants. No small feat;)

That's a very good point DW I like the auto's for that reason that they are great half time show when waiting on the photos I have a white widow and a blue dream in with the autos hope to be my mother plants also moving soon so didn't want to get a crazy set up going. So far I am liking the LED lights make's that bud porn super sexy. I must say that these plants are very strong in smell my whole house smells of fruit I mean everywhere I would recommend the Berry Ryder autos for sure as for the THC bomb I am not so fond of not seeming to do very well I had five seeds and one turned male the others look awful all started at the same time I'll get some pictures today of the THC autos maybe get some input I'm thinking about pulling them from the room and put them outside. I really should have done a journal on this grow. DW for my next run I will not be using autos that's a very good point cost to run is much less. PB thank you for looking out I took your advice and will continue to feed them the normal schedule that they have been on. again Thank You all of you for the help I hope to one day be a great grower

may not get any clones off those mother plants that will reveg. As the are already triggered to flower they will continue to do so.
Posted 26 May 2016 - 06:25 PM
the white widow's and Blue dream are not autos just put the autos in while my bd and ww grow out to get clones they are under 20 hours light grew from seed not even sure yet if they are male or female I'll try to get some pictures tonight
Posted 28 May 2016 - 07:30 AM
