Blackwater first indoor grow

Hi all. I am new to icmag forums. I am about 2/3 through my first serious indoor grow and have already learned a lot from browsing this forum as a guest. I want to learn from my mistakes and learn to grow the best buds possible. I have learned about how to water properly, pH my h2o, how to design and set up a grow tent and many other things. Lots of good info here.

A little bit about my grow environment. 3.5' x 3.5' x 7' grow tent. 600w HPS light with air cooled hood. 4" canfan with carbon filter for ventilation. 6" canfan to cool the light. Small fan for air circulation. This is located in basement and temps are good at about 75 with light out and about 80 when light is on. Humidity has been right about 50%.

I have 3 plants that are from seed that I got from a friend who lives in the sf Bay Area. The seeds are Blackwater from Cali connection.

My biggest issue is with fertilization. As I search the forums I seem to be finding that everyone seems to do it differently and there are so many products out there that I am having a hard time getting a base line going. I am going to try to use earth juice grow for veg and budswel for flower allong with ff happy frog soil. I am using spring water from a natural spring near to me. I know someone who has used this water with success.

My girls are 27 days into flower and I am noticing that the older fan leaves are getting pale and starting to yellow. I have read that they will do that late in flower but I'm thinking that it's a bit early for mine to be doing that. Totally looks like nitrogen def to me. I have not given a lot of feeding up tell now so N deficiency seems likely. To be honest I have been scared to give much nutes since I have been reading that is the easiest way to kill them.

Is end of week 4 to early for leaves to turn pale/yellowing?
Is there anything I can or should do at this point?

New growth buds and leaves look good. Starting to get frosty at bud sights.

Should I just give budswel and get this grow over then feed more and consistantly on my next grow?

I will try to put up some pics. Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Maxiboom 5-7grms per gallon in hydro. 3-5grms per gallon in soil or soilless mixes .


U use this from start to finish google Lucas method: U can get 1000 grams for 12-15$ if using soil or soilless use it as water , water , feed so u only feed on 3rd watering . if u see tip burn back off. u could make a kelp solution and add it to the water for a quick N and K boost mix at 0.5 oz a gallon

Thanks Joint Lock.
Researching Lucas method. Sounds like a simple way to start consistantly giving nutes.

A bit underfed

Hard to see the color under this light. I hope these look ok for a first timer. Was not expecting the tall one to go from 13" to 29" in the first ten days that I switched light to 12/12.

Not sure how to post pictures

Maybe someone can help a me post a pic of my plants. I made a photo album at icmag but when I copy the URL and paste it when trying to upload it doesn't seem to work it just shows link and photo doesn't show up. I'm not too good with the tech devises. Am I not doing it right?

Took some pics this evening!

So I took a few pics tonight and I think things are going pretty well so far. Other than under feeding through out veg and first couple weeks of flower they have been pretty happy. Since this is my first go at this I really don't know what I should be expecting. I didn't do any training to them and I only topped the tall one late to let the other 2 catch up. That one has been the most agressave grower and is the one that has had the yellowing leaves.

Anyone want to give me some constructive criticism and some ideas for my next run?

I have just set up a veg tent so I will be getting my next baby's going in a week or so. I have Girl Scout cookies and Larry OG as well as more Blackwater seeds.

I'm pretty happy with how this grow has gone so far but feel free to let me know what I could be doing to keep my girls happy.

Thanks...Fiddynut

yes, one of your plants is a heavier feeder than the other and needs a good dose of gen nutrients

maybe cut back on whatever "bloom" nutrients you are using and give her a 50/50 mix of "grow"&"bloom" for a couple of waterings

sorry if im overlooking something but what did you feel them before?
