I may have gotten a little excited for my developing flowers and given too much nutes (today I gave her plain RO water). Thoughts on the curling leaves - lower to mid level? She at the start of week 4 of flower - Purple Haze (long flowering strain).
Could be a number of reasons, over watering, nitrogen toxicity, root issues… The leaves look very green, so it might be too much nitrogen? Check the soil, your pH etc and post some results.
I also got the claw around week 4, I had fed them quarter strength nutes 2 days earlier and increased my led light from 25% to 50% Thinking I had overfed them I flushed them but after 3 more days the leaves where still clawing. I read on a forum somewhere that suggested moving my light higher from 24 inch to 36, which I did, and reduced the led to 40% and the leaves straightened out after 3 days and completley returned to normal after 5-6 days.
Chris - I have been following the GH Flora Series and one of their charts online for using with soil. I’m growing in Fox Farms Happy Frog and the plant has been in a 3 gallon cloth pot since I transplanted it from a one gallon on 3/16. I was only giving it nutes every other water, but got worried that maybe my buds needed more for their growth - so I gave it nutes the last 2 of 3 watering. Been watering every 2 days now - maybe too much - she feels a little damp on the bottom of the pot but otherwise the pot is light. When I’ve checked the run-off before the PPM is super high - someone told me you can’t test run off of amended soil as it will always be high. I haven’t checked the PH of the run off - will do that tomorrow. Maybe the soil has enough nutes? I’m also giving it Botanicare’s Sweet Raw along with the GH Flora Series Nutes. What would I need to do if it’s a root issue - it’s too late to transplant now to a larger pot - right? I’m so close to end!
Thanks - my lights aren’t adjustable - using Prism Lighting Science Stealth LED Grow Lights - 530W. I don’t think it’s too much light because it’s happening more to the older growth leaves - not the top leaves.
I think relax on the nutes and watering for a week or so and see if that resolves your issues. Obviously dont let the bags dry out, but damp is not a good sign. Its saying the roots are sitting in water, possibly your issue.
Thanks Chris - will try that.
I had to pull/snip off about 20 fan leaves that had yellowed or dried up. Some just fell off the stalk as I touched them. Her new growth around her buds seems good although some of the lower (receiving less light) sugar leaves are droopy. Some of her pistils are turning amber - most are still white/or light yellow. I’m still seeing a bit of growth in her buds - I feel like she still needs a few weeks - hoping she will make it. On the next watering I really feel like she needs something - any suggestions?
More of the same - leaves dying. Not seeing much fullness to the buds. Wondering when to harvest her. Seeing little droplets clear - so tiny hard to see - since this is my 1st time growing - mmmm.
How has she turned out @websissy
