Hi all It's been a while been slacking but be reeet here is an update.

Nuitz are pictured above as you can see they are all over the gaf I have been struggling with them recently is more me fucking about so it's an easy fix.

Light - 100% 11inch this is MR. 18/6

Conditions- RH 50-54% Again something I am struggling with the weather has gone super wet in my area of jolly old and the RH is through the roof.  Temps - 22-28⁰c

I have a few questions regarding the mistakes I have made and what stage the plant is at.

1. In your opinion what week of the flower would you say I am at??  I think week 3-4,  I know its a silly question but I have fucked about on this grow and not really kept track of ewt.

2. I think I did either too many defoliation or too heavy defoliation and I seem to have underdeveloped leaves all over the plant just 3 finger would you agree??  I think I did too much and at the wrong time whats your opinion???

3. Would you say she is looking super dark green??? 

4. Should I be watering more than once a day?? The coco is never fully dry when I water and the pot is always lighter when I do water she is in a 15Ltr plastic pot.

She always goes a little droopy at about 8pm lights don't go off until 11pm could the water situation be why??

The seed popped 7/03/24.

@ukgrow89 I don't do coco or autos so I wont be much use here.lol 

Do you think it could be about two weeks since she start flowering, it doesn't look like its been all thet long.

The leaves can go droopy because of too much water and they also go droopy if it gets too dry. Iv seen folk saying that you cant over water coco but iv never used it myself.

@stootie ya I think u are right fella 2-3week it's very silly of me not to know I have some pictures with dates on so I will figure it out.  

Ya over watering coco is hard but it's defo possible.

I think the droopy leaves was more environment I seemed to suss that issue yesterday with an open tent door all day I think she is just wanting lower RH struggling with that at the min weather near me is extremely wet at the moment

@ukgrow89 morning mate, I’m not a coco grower either, but noticed, or appears there is a lack of perlite or other aeration enhancing additive. Maybe something to check with the experts.

@sevans1965 ya good shout might be the case.  Can't really add perlite now we are deep into flower.  I do use the canna coco professional + it is lovely and fluffy and I do have the coco balls throughout the medium but as u know they don't airate as good as other bits.

yes @ukgrow89 … she doesn’t look bad in all honesty, how often are you feeding 7L with nuts? I highly recommend listening to HOHG episode growing in coco and also be sure to check out Dr MJ coco for your own sanity. No doubt someone will help you, @lousytourist also grows a lot in coco!

The one thing I learnt from listening to coco grows … little and often helps with fertigation of coco. Not watering/feeding often enough can cause salt built up (higher EC), hence feeding gradually throughout the day and of course making sure dosage isn’t too high.

Are the leaves like your current pic not long after waking up? They can drop before lights off

Your plant is 11 weeks old, does the cultivar give an estimated grow/flower period? Might be a case of playing it by trichome inspection

Coco would work best if you could water it every hour on the hour. Once a day is far too infrequently, a minimum would be every 12 hours. It absolutely must not even get slightly dry.

Nutes in the input are too high -- don't believe the mfr. dosage chart, and playing with it at such levels is a recipe for all the spikes and dips you're seeing. SLOWLY, 100 to 200 EC at a time per gallon mixed of juice, lower it to around 1200, assuming you are using distilled water. When at 1200, leave it there till chop. For me that was 4mL/gallon of grow (or bloom) a + b, the calmag, and a PK for a total of 16mL/gallon of additives. That added up to around 1150.

And water her at least twice a day.

In terms of when she flowered, most of the autos I've grown flowered 4 weeks to the day of sprouting. You can use that as a starting point and you won't be far off.

@lousytourist you absolute legend I will try to make some amendments tonight.  I am unable to get to the plant in the day but I water 1 hour after lights on and I will start to give a second water in the evening when I get in from work.  Thanks for the heads up mate hopefully I can save it

Hi all got some update action.

Right let's get the specs out of the way it might be a long one this 🤣🤣🤣.

Nuitz-  are seen above in the 2 first pics

Light - 100% 11inch from the top.

RH/Temp- 55-45% 23-27⁰c

Watering schedule- 6 litre 2 times a day anything from 8 - 12 hours apart.

So it's been a good few weeks since the heroes here at Perceys made me aware of the mistakes I was making with watering and the nuitz, now as you can see I have brought some stability back and she has been much better than she was,  thanks alot guys pretty much saved me.

As you can see from the photos she took significant stress and is no where near as bulky as she could be but she gave it a good fight back 🤣🤣.

Now with her being an auto I lost a lot of grow time due to my mistake so I am milking the fuck out of her 🤣🤣 I am going to take her properly all the way and I am going to go for a more amber trichome colour just to experience and see what my preference is if u get what I mean?🤣 basically doing a small experiment, I am currently checking dayly and to my surprise there are still lots of clear trichomes so I am hoping there still might be a week of stacking in her yet.

As you can see from the post when the mistake was discoved I was advised to stick with a 1.2 EC,  but when u see my pics I went with the 0.8EC please don't think this was me thinking I know better I was just shitting it and this was the number I got when I went back to a half dose so I left it like that hope that makes sense 🤣🤣🤣.

My thought is she might go another 2 week hopefully but she is looking tired and ready to start fading but I don't really know its only my 3rd grow still learning This stuff really.

Just want to say thanks again for the help, especially @lousytourist your an absolute killer.
