Re: How to Ask for Grow Support

My plants first started out with too high ph balance! I was told to regulate it on next watering. Last night I watered again adding nuets. Now my plants leafs are looking like tacos. what do I do to correct this problem, before it grows to a bigger problem?

Are you measuring the ph of the soil or water ??

Thanks for the extra info, im sure someone will be able to point you in the right direction.

That definatly looks like it has issues, lol.
I may be way off, but my first guess is too many nutes for a plant that size is causing a lock up.

Also as per the charts above, you may want to get your PH up to 6. what PH was that by the way? your water, your soil or your run off?

Is the harvest window of 55-65 days mean from seed to harvest or the amount of time it takes to harvest once done with veg

thats from seed, but take those times merely as a guide. reminds me of those salesmen with a golden smile and a big flash car that say 'you too could be a millionaire, just sign here' lol

nute problems, weak light, temp fluctuations e.t.c will all make the time take longer.

personally i would ignore the calender and just focus on the plant. generally you can convert from veg to flower when ever you like the size, think 5 nodes on the plant is the start of maturity.

watering schedule should be based around wet/dry. just pour enough water in to get a little bit of run off, then let them dry out till the pot is not heavy/a finger stuck into the soil comes out dry/ the leaves start to wilt a little from thirst.

as to nutes, i believe too few is better than too many, so try to err on the side of caution.

you have all the test gear to measure ppm and total alkilinity e.t.c?

Get some dolomite lime and scratch it in to your soil... Anytime you are using peat based soil as the peat breaks down the soil becomes more acidic... Lime will solve your PH problem...
