Never known the cause of this leave twisting and curling. Some talk about leaves that claw which points to a Mg Def. My soil is abundant with Mg as I have had it professionally tested (1100 ppm Mg), and with a PH of 6.7 Mg should be available.

But as all shows around week 4.5 to 6 the leaves start to twist and curl, and the outer most tips start to burn which gets progressively worse through week 6 to 8 where they almost completely burn. This strange problem has seriously affected the final weeks dropping an average 2+ lbs/light to an embarrassing 1.2 per.

Anyone seen this type of twisting / curling before?




Thanks so much everyone...
