ok guys these plants about about 12-14 days old from being sprouted from seed.  these are auto flowers. the ph is 5.8 , the thing that im noticing that im a little worried about is that the way the leafs are warping/bending down.

Okay, there is a link at the top of this forum asking you to fill out the questionnaire.  If you do this then we can help you.  You've been here long enough to know this by now dude.

One thing I can say is that it looks like it's stretching.  How close and what kind of light are you using.

hawk the reason i did not fill it out was cause i did not know if they looked ok or not .. just did not know if i was being the over crazy plant daddy making something out of nothing.

right now i have 525 watts of light running over each 3 plants. they are 600 watt bulbs but i have a 1000 watt ballast on boost mode for 1050 watts that has a splitter to two lights.


as for the stretching look... when i sprouted the seeds i put them in rock wool cubs and then put in a humidity dome under a cheap t-12 light and i think they did alot of stretch then. 

when i put the plants under the mh lights i had it about 2-3 feet over it.... i raised the lights to about 4-5 feet over it cause i was figuring that the plants that looked all wilted might be over heated.

10. Does your PPM/EC show a rise or fall when you do your daily PPM check? did not check daily.


11. Does your pH show a rise or fall when you do your daily check? its been raising every couple days in less then a week i had to ph it down twice. and the roots have not even gone down into the water yet to feed off the nuits yet. so i find it weird that the ph had gone up twice

14. How close are your lights to the plants? it wast about 3 feet from the the plants. but i just raised it to about 4-5 feet thinking that the plants leafs are wilting due to to much heat from the lights

So the roots aren't hitting any water yet?  If so I would raise the level so that they aren't drying out man.  That could be part of your problem.  I wouldn't be over concerned about them if the roots aren't drying out, and they don't continue to get worse.


No matter the question posted in here, you should just automatically fill the questionnaire out.  It gives us all the facts right off the bat, and helps us help you.
