Change of lights

Post by CBDJ »

Hi, I'm new to forum, I've have regular seeds popped a month ago, they were under 6 x t5 36w bulbs in a small room I made they were doin really well, average 17°-19° bout 4inches tall just onto the 3rd node, I just bought new spider farmer led lights so I moved out into my grow room (80m2 basement) I put them on a table 12" below the sf2000 they felt ok in weight usually I'd water them hour after 4 hours darkness (5pm).. I set up a fan just above the plants half over the top half kind of cooling the lights...
Woke up this morning and the fan was just blowing cold air at them bit much an was 14° (bit cold??)
The leaves were drooping down massively (quite scary) an the pots were very light in weight
I read that they might of had transplant stress an I should of fed them after the change of environment...
Does anyone have any experience with this problem or most of all a solution to this problem... thanks

Feed them on a wet to almost dry cycle not little amounts, full wet soil...try not to let them dry out completely as the leaves will droop as you have noticed. Soil is usually good for about 4 weeks of veg, depending on the soil of course

And you can spray with water although not necessary

Hi there, welcome!

You're gonna need a heater by the sounds of it, get temps up around 25*C - 30*C lights on and a little lower lights off (about 5*C lower is a good target.). Also seedlings and LEDs are a funny mix, I'd raise the light up higher - I don;t know your light but I'd start at about 30 inches, they probably don't like it too close.

What food are you using? Plagron light mix will need feeding, have a look at the feeding schedules on the Plagron website.

No need to ph anything in soil unless the bottle tells you it needs phing.

Little and often water while they root out the pots, then drench and let dry before drenching again and letting dry again and then repeating till chop!

How old are they? What size pots? Pictures help. etc.

:oik!:

Welcome, I also agree, I have had plants die extremely quickly ( over a course of 24-48 hours ) at similar temps. Get the heating on :)

Re:first ec reading an transplant

Post by CBDJ »

Hi guys I'm about to transplant my plants from 1 litre pots to 25 litre air pruning pots the roots are at bottom of the pot so I guess they are ready to move?..
They bounced back from the heat issue i had and are drinking heavily now..
I just opened to up my ec pen an I was expecting to see 0.7 ec as I have hard water in Spain, but my pen said 911 an 12°
I've got plagrom light mix I've downloaded their schedule but I have added nothing but water b4 I have bought A an B but label in Spanish..
So I'm wanting to mix 10 litres to soak the soil between 3 × 25l pots..
How much A an B would I use?
How do I find out the e.c ?
I read it needs to be around 1.3-1.6?

Is your pen not just saying your ec is 0.9? because mine would show 900 if it was 0.9 for example. if it displays ppm then you could convert it to ec ( multiply the ppm reading by 2 and divide by 1000. Thus, if your EC is 1: 1*1000/2= 500 ppm)

What A and B brand ferts have you got... ?

You may need a bit more than 10L to soak 75L of soil too.

My 5L pots take 2L to soak them.
