Hello everybody, Mr A has had to take an unexpected trip and has left me to look after his plants. In the short exchange we had before he went he said everything was going well but when I looked in last night, the plants look far from well. Both of the big ones have yellowed quite badly, to the point that most of the fan leaves have crisped up and dropped off. The small leaves coming out of the buds have yellowed also.
According to his poor notes in the diary, they will be due harvest in 3 or so weeks but I fear they may not get that far.

I know he is in organic soil and im at a loss of what to do with them. The only stuff I find on the feed shelf is a bag of Neem meal, a bag of kelp meal and a bag of malted barley powder. Last entry in diary was Thursday and all it says is MBD. pots felt a bit light so I know they will need water. Lights don't come on till 9pm so ive got a little time to get some sort of plan together ill also try and get some pics up then so you can see what I mean.

Please help me, I don't want to kill his plants.

I suspect that MBD is malted barley drench. I wouldn't have a clue what the recipe would contain.

Found this

...My go to for yellowing is malted barley tea... just grind up some malted barley seeds and mix with water .. give the whole crew a watering. You will get result overnight.

Some strains will yellow and there's noting we can do about it. Lots of folks try and "fix" it but that's the way they grow. At the end of the day the flowers will be green and that's all we care about!

Thank you MagicJim. I went ahead and gave them some water with a tablespoon of barley powder mixed in. They look bad.

The buds look good but they look like they're out of food. Has he any bottled nutrients there? They're sucking up all the potassium and phosphorous. Damn good looking buds but they need some food I reckon. I'm adding a disclaimer that this is only my opinion and you're still to blame if they die lol...That's what I think they're looking for and that soil needs a kick to provide it :thumb:

I don't think he threw out all his food so he must have some BioBizz Bloom there or something similar, if you give them a hit of that they won't look better but they may stay the final 3 weeks and become even fatter. The buds themselves have great growth but they look like they need more now...greedy girls :thumb:

Does he have any earthworm castings? It's a first-line response to all problems in the living soil realm. I seem to recall that Mr A tends to run his a little yellow anyway, doesn't he guys? Is this a Dark Devil Auto? The bigger leaves are simply turning their colors, at just the right time, but you do have what appears to be too much yellow.

Does he have any Langbeinite?

When I saw the picture my hand instinctively reached for my box. I scratch it into the surface and water in. I never measure, just feel my way into it.

He won't hurt you if something happens to the plants. :4: :love: At the stage they are right now he'll get a good harvest no matter what. You could lose every leaf on the plant and it would still finish. Maybe not as full, but it would be worth the grow. Take a breath and enjoy the plant. She is a pretty thing.

Yellow leaves per se aren't a sign of plant health. I've got plants and they all have yellow leaves!!

Look at the calyx - where the white hairs are coming out - that's the business end of the plant.

In your pics that part of the plant is still healthy and growing and looking GREAT.

The only thing I've ever given a yellowing plant this late in flower to keep it going is:

worm casting tea - worm castings (1/2 cup) with some alfalfa meal 1/2 cup and some kelp meal (1/2 cup)

Kinda late tho for that... it's not going to change the color of the leaves.

I don't know the strain your growing there but some strains do yellow quite a bit at this stage. If I was you and I'm not. I'd be in a panic.

Fear not young grasshopper... relax, do not over react.

If anything over watering.. let the pot lighten up before doing anything other that brewing up some compost tea. Adding chemicals to a soil grow is going to make matters worse. You will be fine. sit back and enjoy the fall colors.

Here's a pic of mine - mind you I do not trim/cut/pluck or otherwise disturb my ladies once they are in flower. I let them go .. yellow is early fall color... next they may turn orange or just fall off...this plant is completely fine and actually excelling at flower production.

Those big leaves have collected lots and lots of energy from the lights and stored it in the leaves just for this time in its life cycle. The plants flowers are asking the leaves to give up the nitrogen/ chloroplast / leaf protein.

If you look closely the yellowing is mainly those larger older leaves.. there's still green going on under those yellowing leaves.

My suggestion is to sit tight - don't over water, take a deep deep puff or 3 and relax. All is well.

Bob, your yellowing is indicative of finish, but OP's yellowing is far(!) too widespread and over the top and indicates lockout.
That said, there's nothing he can do at this point. Adding any amendments this late in flower won't reverse the issues, it'll just ruin what's left of those flowers. At this point his terpene profile is gonna' take it right in the old pooper. Best thing he can do is flush DTW (drain to waste) with ph-correct water for a week or so, then cut 'em.
I can't suss out what caused the lockout, but it seems like the effects were very sudden onset, too bad it happened while plant-sitting but it looks like the caretaker wasn't at fault.

Btw, Bob, pretty plant you got there-details? [emoji846]
