2 gal

5.What is your soil mix?
Straight coir

Currently 6²

13. What is the temperature and humidity in your grow space??
Room temperature (72⁰)

14. What is the pH of the soil?

15. What is the pH of your run off?
Will have to check next time there is some

16. Have you noticed any insect activity in your grow space?
No insect activity.

I have to say she is resilient and after what she's lived through I'm hoping I can enjoy some buds from her.... So when I brought the plant home I transplanted it immediately into potting soil and a one gallon planter and watered it with no nutrients whatsoever in the water because it had been premixed potting soil. Well I noticed after only a day that the leaves were starting to turn yellow and brown and curl up so I raised the lights even more. Well the yellowing continued so I removed her from the lighting all together and I've just been letting her get some light from the window I also switched her out from one gallon planter to a 2 gallon planter with just straight coir so I can control any and all nutrients and she looked like she bounced back and then I started observing the same problems again with the yellowing of the leaves and so I've been afraid to have her underneath the lights at all and afraid to even water really
because I don't know what's going on.

Are you familiar with how to grow in coco?  Water to 10% runoff, feed at 1.6 EC or less, feed every watering, pH 5.8-6.2. Your plant looks like it might have nute burn, which could either be caused by the tomato food, the soil, or the combination of both.  They also might have some overwatering issues.

Figuring out watering might be a little tricky, since soil and coco have different requirements.  I'd say treat it like it's in coco, flush at maybe 0.8 EC until the runoff EC falls to a more acceptable level, then you can feed at 1.3-1.6 EC.  Fertigate whenever the medium mostly drys out, at least until the roots are developed.  Then you can water/feed once a day or more.  This brings me to another coco tip; keep the pot size small.  I have plants that were over 6 feet tall in a 1 gallon pot of coco, as long as you can feed often enough smaller pots are preferred.

You'll want a cheap EC meter and a nicer pH pen.  Apera makes a good pH pen.

Good luck with your plant!
