Hi @Jrmiehazefvr

I'm also a newbie here, but perhaps giving some more detail will assist people in helping you further

 E.g.

  • Do you have photos of the plants?
  • What led grow light?
  • How far is it from the plants?
  • Pics of your setup?
  • How often do you water?
  • How old were the plants?
  • What does "keep dying" mean? Has this happened before? At the same stage?
  • Any chance you have an idea of the temperature grow room/area?
  • Bag seeds / from a seedbank? Auto/feminised etc?

Hope that helps and good luck

Are you only using palm/coco peat? I would recommend using vermicompost, peat and perlite in a 1:1:1 ratio. If you are only going to feed water you will have to pH your water to 5.8. Peat also contains no nutrients. Vermicompost does so you can feed wate for some time. Are you going organic or hydro? If you are going organic use sodium bicarb and lemon juice you pH up and down. I suggest doing an organic grow the first time round. It is more forgiving. Also invest in some soil. Organics matter has a craft soil and freedom farms has one. Welcome to the forum.

Im not too sure that light is going to do the trick. When you say your plants died, did they stretch a lot quickly and then fell over and died?

You wil have to change the soil/grow medium.

This is a set I did for a friend. Every thing cost R4200. Seeds was an extra R800. If you want all the detail send me a PM. You could get away with less if you only do one light. 21377bbefdbcfcfe573cb1dd943b6c59.jpg
