    Auto Diesel help. Wilting issues

    I’m new. Third grow. and looking for some advice on why this girl(diesel auto) is wilting around the buds. Im in a 4x4 tent with led pmxl 900 light. FF soil with good drainage and advanced nutrient schedule at 50% strength. I’m feeding 2x a day and not overwatering. Soil dries out fast and it’s only 40% humidity. I have a heater set at 70 and its fluctuating from 65-75. I was running all three lamp modes to get the most out of the light. Thanks in advance.

    There is some really bad info going around about watering multiple times a day with a little amount of water/nutes.

    I personally Like to Grow my Weed Easy and don't have the time to give my plants a quarter Tablespoon every half hour throughout the day for 4 months.

    Nebula and sirius's tutorial on how to water is as easy as it gets, give them a good watering to runoff and wait till the pot drys out for a couple days, simple and easy for new Growers.

    Not saying that a person can't water frequently with a little amount of water, it is just best to become an experienced grower before you push these boundaries.
    It is to easy for a new Grower to overwater.

    Right on. Thanks for the support 👍 It’s apparent to me now that the watering has been too little amount and not to saturation. Ha I feel like an idiot but that’s the fun of learning I think. Yes I have two circulation fans and an exhaust fan going. Thanks again 👍

    Too much food bro... stop the nutes for the time being... let the baby dry out.. then just water

    She looks way better, maybe just need to water more slowly and carefully. Or maybe just more frequently. I’m glad she’s recovering

    Air movement (circulation) should be 24 hrs a day- above the canopy and below.
    I am not sure if you have an exhaust fan or not.
    What happens after you water it? does it bounce back?
    If not-

    I have to agree with Canuck147 that the plants look like they are drowning- as the upper leaves looks fair.

    I would also push about 1" depth of soil away from the stem to the container edge to allow more oxygen to the roots.
    I'm assuming the pot is off the ground and on a rack?
    Punching holes in the fabric about 2-3" from the bottom will also allow more oxygen in and keep the roots from being submerged.

    Other options include root rot/pests- but the entire plant would droop.

    I’m not a big pool player. I drive machines by a gimbal/stick control 😜

    Though the wilting began when the soil was dry AF? It was dry to the point it didn’t want to easily accept water. I have two circulation fans 6 in and a 1200cfm exhaust fan off a filter set at 600cfm. Also. The other plants in my garden seem healthy. Water temperature is same as garden area and ph is steady. Ph perfect

    Thanks for the insight. I have a six inch fan running when it hits 75 degrees. I’ll back off the water/ feed and see how it goes. I’ve been feeling it out and lifting the pots. They get water when they’re dry. It’s been once every couple days till about a week ago and they just started really sucking up the moisture. Lights are set at 18-6. Thanks again 👍
    update. She’s recovering nicely. Looks like a little night and relaxing helps a lot. All perked up this morning.
    I’ll take the defoliation advice and work on that tomorrow 👍

    Same as KTM690 and WeedPharma says.
    Plus your roots have probably filled up your pots, is why they are drying out fast.
    Next time you water-feed your plants, water until good runoff,and don't water-feed again until your pot is light weight.
    Good Luck

    I agree with above- let your plant dry out-COMPLETELY- !

    A low setting- fan coming from below the canopy will help.
    The lower portion of the plant could use some trimmimg to assist with air flow.

    Do you have ventilation and circulation?

    Autos require very little nutrients and you are simply giving it too much TLC.

    Double check the light distance and schedule-

    Your feeding twice a day?? I'm thinking with water and nutes. That seems likely that they are a bit over watered and over fed. I'm water and feed every 2 to 4 days waiting for my pot to get light. Then water and or feed but I'm light on nutes and water plants seem very happy with less water and nutes. That works very good for myself I know others have their ways also but 2x per day seems overkill.
