    COCO COIR 49 day veg couple issues

    Hello again, roughly 50 day into veg in a 2.5 gallon pot, 50/50 vigro potting soil, and vigro perlite. Watering every 2 days roughly little less then half a gallon normally . Used vigoro 5-3-3 plant tone 2 days ago. Some of the leaves looking funny. Just wondering what you think.

    I upgraded from the 5 gallon spacebucket to a 44 gallon trashcan. 2 fan to 4 fan. My 6 cfl bulbs, to a 300w growstar UFO.

    I've had some other issues throughout the last month. But she keeps growing. Just never has looked great.. It is a unknown bagseed as well.

    It looks over watered and unhealthy. Why such a small pot? So you’re growing in a trash can? Whats the airflow, temp and humidity like in there? I’m thinking you’re growing in a sauna in my mind


      55% humidty, 70-80°f. 4 x 120mm fans. 2 vent, 2 exhaust. It's in my kitchen. 2.5 gallon was biggest lowes had that would fit in my original space bucket. Click image for larger version

      it's still a small enclosure with limited grow space, what would be the point of getting a bigger one?

        What about when it’s in flower ? You have room for it in that space ?
        Never seen this before I just say.

      What about the Ph levels ?
      could easily just be a Ph problem.
      but 2,5 gallon it’s maybe already root bound.
      Just because people are over 50 doesn’t mean they know everything.

        Looks unfortuitly to confined of space and grow medium seems off with nutes.

          Yea, I wanted to switch to flower earlier, but she keeps looking shitty. Ph in medium is <7.0 at roots. Over watering probabaly is the initial issue. I'm not doing the up to 1 knuckle horseshit anymore. It doesn't work.

          I did add 2 teaspoons of vigiro 5-3-3 but it was looking rough prior to that. Was hoping it needed nutrients.

          I have a 4x4 vivison tent in my amazon cart. But at my current residence I have nowhere to put it short of making my kids share a room. It out grew the 5 gallon spacebucket super fast. I suck at LST obviously.

            7,0 is way to high for coco coir !

            You should be around 5,5-6,5 in PH ..
            maybe this is the problem. ?

          It's less than 7. Using filtered tap water. I was told my last plant died because I was using bottled water. Also haven't watered recently, 3 days or 4 days. Re-opened all the drainage holes on bottom been trying dry it out more. I may of had a drainage problem.

          Would the 4 day old water ph be higher?

            Depends on what it’s in the water and what kind of supplements and fertilizer maybe ?
            It could fluctuate if not it’s been stabilized fx.

          It’s hard to LST when you only have inches either direction to work with. Don’t beat yourself up. You kept a plant alive, growing inside a bucket longer than I would’ve bet it would live.

            My only question would be - Is vigora? suitable for cannabis plants?

              That cat has been stealing leaves. He's got that 100 yard stare into that plant, lol!

            IMO SpaceBound , you have a definite pH problem. Generally coco needs to be 5.5pH to not more than 6.5 so you are high and your leaves show it. Try close to 5.5 water flush and wait a couple days for new growth. If that looks good stay at that level or + a 6.0 then vary a little f
