okay thanks for the detailed advice, super easy to understand and I greatly appreciate it.

As of tomorrow, I will feed them since they will be due by afternoon for a watering. I will just use PH bal water only, soak the roots up enough and I'll let it get bigger.

Perhaps I will PM you if you dont mind when they get bigger and ask your further opinion on how I should go with it.

My grow is in your hands! haha.

I was following this schedule:

Week 1: No nutes, just PH balanced water. >> Recipe per gal <<
Week 2: CAL-MAG 2ML, MICRO 1ML, GRO 1ML, BLOOM 0.5ML
Week 2-4 (veg stage): CAL-MAG 2ML, MICRO 2.5ML, GRO 2.5ML, BLOOM 1ML.
Week 5-6 (early flowering): CAL-MAG 2ML, MICRO 2ML, GRO 1ML, BLOOM 2ML
Week 7-8 (Mid-flowering stage): CAL-MAG 2ML, MICRO 2ML, GRO 0.5ML, BLOOM 2ML
Week 9-10 (Late flower): CAL-MAG 0ML, MICRO 2ML, GRO 0ML, BLOOM 4ML.

I was pretty much copying a YouTuber who has great product and he layed out his feed schedule he follows for all his auto grows. My only concern now is if I stop feeding nutes and go back to water, I feel that I have no structure in my feeding schedule because now I don't know what to do and what nutes to add when and for how long since I don't have a schedule to follow nor the knowledge to make a new one up to adjust to my plant.

It's my first ever grow, feeding is the most confusing for me by far lol.

forgot to ask 1 last question (doh!)

If I am growing in CoCo/perlite medium which I am, and I just feed water as you suggested, what is the science behind it growing since coco has no nutrition for plants to feed off of?

Initially the seedling has everything it needs from their endosperm which is contained in the seed. So you don't need to feed them initially. By growing in coco once they have matured you'll have greater control over the nutrients your plants consume.

pretty much this
the coco is a good draining medium and hold nutrients pretty well, but its up to you to adjust the feedings to the plant

Just fed about 280-300ml of PH bal water with no nutes in it to each plant today, over night 1 of my plants grew a decent amount. The stem got longer and the second set of leaves are getting bigger slowly but surely.

A part of me wants to start adding nutes but you said to just feed PH bal water until the first 3 finger leaves starting showing so im just waiting on the plant to grow a bit more.

So far just keeping the feedings light, only had to feed once today and tomorrow it should be due for another in the afternoon.

Guess all I can do is wait now

Thanks so much for the help guys, I honestly feel like you guys are part of any success im having. I will have tons of questions along the way and I can get super annoying but I have good intentions and I just want my plants to have opportunity to live up to its potential is all.

right on man!
sounds like your girl is doing great and once the roots get more established you will start to see some explosive growth
yeah just stick to plain water for now
i cant touch the soil so you will have to be our eyes and hands here; if you feel like the soil is moist enough you dont have to give her all the water at once
/over watering is a very common problem
you are totally on the right track with your wait and let the plant do her thing approach
/sometimes inactvity is the best course of action
hey brother, we are here to talk about growing and learn form each other so dont feel like any of your questions are annoying
keep up the good work msi'

Thanks so much for making me feel welcome here, I was referred here by a fellow grower I met on a different community and I am grateful.

That being said, here is a picture I took a few hours ago of my two autos. Looking good so far?

Awesome!!! I'm so glad to hear and have your input. Do me a favor and don't forget about this thread haha I will be updating it with questions and pics as my plants progress and I could sure use someone with proper knowledge who can guide me to giving my plants an opportunity to live to their quality/yield potential.

A part of me wants to just give these babies some nutes but I learned that less is more and in time I will be able to make their nute mixes which I do enjoy hehe.
