Hi guys, need some advice on my micro please. I've noticed this issue with my plants, where they are starting to look droopy with a yellow starting to show on the leaves. I feed every 2 to 3 days. Im using a spider farm 100w led, and a soil bought from a local hardware store which was there own brand.

@dash The soil looks very wet mate, are you letting it dry out a little between waterings? Its very easy to over water the plants, make sure you're letting the soil dry out a little before you water them againΒ 

Also, what is that white stuff on the top of the soil in the pot on the bottom right?Β

@macky thank you for the reply. I do leave it until it feels dry. I'll invest in a hydrometer to get accurate readings. I'll will let you know in due course how I go.

@Dash, I have containers about the same size and I watered them yesterday for the first time in 9 nine days. I use a cheap meter that works fairly well. I'm trying to figure out timing forΒ  watering also so this meter thingy helps me. Also remember that your not suppose to have run off with soil so I water very slowly until it leaks just a tiny bit and I take note of how water it took and that's the maximum water then. I make sure to PH the water but some don't. That's all I got hope it helps, good luck man. πŸ‘Β

@dash, ALSO, I grabbed the old kitchen scale and weighed the pots after watering, then I'm told to wait to water until the pot is half the weight. Double check this as I may be mistaken but it will work, not sure about the actual weight and timing though. You figure it out!! πŸ‘ Just let them dry out some- but don't let them dry out completely, it that makes sense! lol

I don’t see any side/bottom drain holes. Get something to Raise your Plant container off grow tent bottom Β . This will insure that water tension has a release to let the container drain and breathe.Β
