Too Much Nitrogen? How To Recover?


New Member
One month in veg after flowering. In Hyponex soil 3 gallons under 600 watt MH light. I have flushed the plant, and the runoff is PH 6. What should I do next?

look into the ph thing. I am not a soil guy, but I think soil ph should be around 6.5. Also, are you feeding the plant nutrients or is it in the soil already. I am not familiar with "hyponex" but if it has slow release ferts then try not to water until it is ABSOLUTELY necessary, as giving water will give it nutrients. Looks like you have been doing something right up till this point though...

It seems the potting soil with fertilizer is popular enough that I can't find any without it. I am trying to get clones started from this plant, just don't know if I will succeed on the first try or not. So I am trying to keep this plant alive as long as possible. This has turned into a learning experience for me. I will post again to let you know if there is improvement or not. Thanks for the replies.

Ok, it looked like I was going to lose her, so I decided to get radical and experiment. Pulled her out of the pot, and removed most of the soil. Then I repotted her in some fresh sunshine advanced mix 4. Now I am lightly watering with PH adjusted (5.9) water only every other day. I expected wilting but that didn’t happen. I think she looks better, and seems to be growing with no shock from the transplant.
