1st LED Grow SolarStorm 400 32x32x62 PICS Indoor 400Watt Solarstorm
    #654966 - 01/14/13 11:58 AM (3 years, 10 months ago)

This is my 1st LED indoor grow. I am growing in a 32x32x62 tent. I have a 400 Watt SolarStorm 400 Watt LED light. I will start off with 5 plants. Here is the basic information about the grow.

1. Are you growing from seed or clones? SEED
2. How old are your plants? 14 Days old
3. How tall are your plants? 2 - 3 inches
4. What size containers are they planted in? Dixie cups for now
5. What is your soil mix? Foxfarms Happy Frog
6. How often do you water and what type of water do you use and how much you give per watering? Almost everyday due to soil drying
7. What is the pH of your water? Distilled

So far thats all I think I need to post. Now I turn to you all for your advise. I had my light about 2 feet above my plants but just dropped it down to about 1ft to see how that works out. I will check it today often to see what they look like. I am running my light 24/7 as of now.

I have foxfarms nuts I wanna start useing. Can I start with the growbig now?

Please note the 2 plants on the left were just put in new cups today. I knocked them over and they cracked. I hope it dont kill them, they were my best plants so far.

I WILL UPDATE EVERY FEW DAYS NEW PICTURES SO PLEASE CHECK BACK.
THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT AND ADVISE YOU HAVE IS GREAT

I'd stop using distilled water unless you already have an issue with tap water. You probably don't need to water those every day, even if they are a little dry on the top. I go by weight of the container to determine watering needs. Soil can get fairly dry before water is not available to the plant.

I wouldn't start feeding them quite yet, wait until they are a little bigger.  They look good so far. What is your temperature, its hard to read.  Those that you knocked over will probably be fine but could be a little stunted if you damaged the roots too much.

Your light doesn't need to be that close in veg, but you might experiment with its distance in flower.  Just make sure when your light is that close to your seedlings that your not giving them too much heat.

To answer your questions
1st I have well water and it is VERY hard. I have a water softner but it still is bad so I cant use my house water. It also has a lots of bactira in it so I have a UV light. I thought it just be better to save a headace and use distilled. For some reason I water in the am around 9 everday and when I check in the next day its dry and light as a feather. Thats why I have been watering it so much. I could try and wait 48 hours and see how that goes.

Temps range from 75 to 82 on that one next to the plants and on the digital one around 77-82 (digital is on top)

As for the light I might back it off some I was worried they were not getting enough light but now I know. As for nuts I will hold off for another week or so. I was so worried the dam cups cracked and I had to move them to new cups. I did not pull on the roots or abother but I am still stressed over it.

Ahh, that would explain the problem. Most water softeners are just plain rock salt, which is not exactly what you want your plants to get a lot of.  If your water is store bought they will usually sell you water for much cheaper, just gotta bring a 5 gallon bottle to fill up. Walmart has it for like 23 cents a gallon for RO (< 10 ppm) What is the ppm of your well water? Don't quote me on this, but I heard somewhere that if its under 400 it shouldn't be an issue. Might have been 2 or 300, but I'm pretty sure that it was 400. You'd probably want to use the water from the garden hose, as it will most likely not be softened.  Do you know for sure that the 'bacteria' is causing any problems?  Buying water is a bitch when your plants are bigger.

If you have to stick with distilled then I would keep an eye out for any cal/mg issues. Try going 30 hrs before 48, just in case they are sucking it down like crazy, but usually small plants don't drink that much. Do you know your humidity?  how much water do you give each plant.. till runoff?

My water softner is set as soon as the water comes in my house so it would be just as bad to use hose water. I never thought to set it up after my hose hookup and its a bitch when i have to water my outside gardfen due to lack of rain.... I am also 100 positive my water has bactaria. I had it checked via that state as was told I have no choice but to get the light to kill off the bad shit...

Now another problem I am haveing is getting worse. Take a look at these two pics. Look at the bottom leaves how that look like rust. All my leaves where standing at attention now all of a sudden they are saggin. Any idea whats going on? I dont have a PH meter but I am gonna order 1 today..

I think your distilled water is causing problems, they're looking a little deficient and over watered. Remember that distilled has 0 ppm, and most nutrients expect to have some cal/mg in your tap water. I would say let them go a little longer between waterings and mix your nutrients very light for the next feeding.

If you have any bag seeds or even vegetable seeds (raw beans would work) you could experiment with the soil your using and see how light the container can get before they die, you'd be surprised.
