I am a first time grower and need some help. I am trying to do this grow discreetly and cheaply so here's the low down: Outdoors, a 2ft hole in the ground with Miracle grow (don't shoot me) moisture control garden soil and some added perlite. The plant is one month and one week old. Strain is Big Bang auto. She is about 8" to 10" tall. The spot the plant is in also receives full sun.
So she was doing good right before I went away last Friday. No signs of struggle. Possible Variable: I watered her with the most I have ever watered her with, 2 litters. I usually do 1 litter every 3-5days. I watered her with 2 litters thinking that I was going away and would not be able to bring her water for 5-6 days. I noted that the temperatures in the North East here where to be in the upper 90's, figured extra water wouldn't hurt. No Nutes! Just spring water.
I go to check her last night (Wednesday) and bring her water and my heart sunk. There she was toppled over, and two larger leaves at the top of the plant were curled up. We did have some bad weather up here while I was gone. Could a thunderstorm do this?
I hope I did the right thing; I put her back up and gave her a pint of spring water. Once watered she seemed to stand back up ok. I think I am going to bring a straw and bread ties and prop her up for a little while.
Before I do anything I'd like to hear some feedback. Is she over watered, heat stressed or hit by lighting?? Any advice here would be greatly appreciated.
I will be going to check on her again in a few minutes. I will try to take some pictures. Hopefully she will be ok.
