    Plants keep burning, I don't know what to do anymore

    I created a follow up thread to this post here. Thanks to everyone and some messing around, I was able to figure out the issue was the PH. It only took me months and cost me thousands of dollars, but did my first harvest yesterday so I'm back on track!

    Those blurples are Mars Hydryo MKII 1600 Watts.

    Easing in my bad water

    My tap water annihilated my plants for 4 months straight before I realised what was going on. I switched to distilled water with the correct PH levels and the plants have been fine since. The problem is that distilled water is expensive. I got "ph down" and I'm ready to try water that I...

    Bud Washing

    I'm back on the fence regarding this. There are so many people who are vehemently against bud washing. I've even had local growers (who's weed is amazing) look at my very strangely when I tell them I wash them. Some of these guys have also blamed the "fluffiness" of some of my buds due to the...

    Getting into hydro while in quarantine

    I ended up getting a "wilma" kit. Not sure if I'm even allowed to mention it. It sounds like the easiest way to get into hydro. It's basically just a big tub with slots for 4 plants. I only created clones today so I only need to set up the hydro part a bit later. I'll update as I go. What I...

    Getting into hydro while in quarantine

    I've sorted out my water issue and I understand PH's better now. So I want to stick with dirt, but at the same time start learning about hydro. Just one plant would do and after reading a bit, it really sounds like a lot more fun and you will get far superior results in a shorter period. So...

    Plants keep burning, I don't know what to do anymore

    Thanks for this! I do think this might be it. I'm afraid of them not getting enough nutes, depsite the soil I'm using saying that is perfect from start to finish. And I think I may have done exactly what you described here. I'm going to stick to distilled water until the plant is bigger. Thanks!

    Plants keep burning, I don't know what to do anymore

    Thanks and yes, I am supporting it now to keep it up. Just took the photo without the support to demonstrate. But still curious why it got so droopy. Never happened before. :(

    Plants keep burning, I don't know what to do anymore

    Most of the new sprouts seem to be doing okay. Pretty sure it was PH. But the "littel fighter" wasn't doing great today. When I got there, it lost all of it's firmness and was almost hanging to the side. See pictures: What do you think? Any idea what could cause it to get this droopy overnight?

    Plants keep burning, I don't know what to do anymore

    We have 1 little fighter! It's not dying! I believe the others died because there was still too much PH in the soil. But it's looking on the up. Some of the clones I took are growing a lot better now as well. Not making many leaves yet, but the roots are growing like crazy. Hoping I'll see them...

    What is the nastiest bud you have ever smoked?

    But why? Do they use poo water on the plants? Do they budwash it in the toilet? How on earth do you get poo on your bud?

    What is the nastiest bud you have ever smoked?

    On account of my plants all dying (see here) I no longer have any bud. And thanks to lockdown, getting some is difficult. So I have found myself, and I'm not proud of this, smoking a pretty nasty old bud. The bud fell off my counter about a month ago. It has been behind a cupboard with massive...

    Plants keep burning, I don't know what to do anymore

    2 of the 3 seeds I planted are turning yellow and burn-y. I'm guessing the 3rd is going to follow suite. So I no longer think the water plays any factor. It can only be the soil, or somehow the air. I still have this outlandish theory that my extraction fans are too strong and that is somehow...

    Can I plant directly from Rockwool?

    I have a few clones in rockwool. What do you normally do when you want to plant them? Do you take the rockwool "off" somehow? Or do you leave it on and just stick it "as is" in the dirt?

    Plants keep burning, I don't know what to do anymore

    > Did you switch to a seed sprouting medium?? I did not. Sprouting is not the issue. They do sprout and have sprouted for the last 3 years. Something has changed that's making everything die, and I can't figure it out. And I don't think it's the water either. The new seeds are taking forever...
