    Yellow leaves

    Hey Im 1 month into Flowering the plants are full of budsites I have had to stake them down b/c they have started to tip over they are a 90 day strain so they still have untill the end of July but I have noticed that some of the plants are getting alot of yellow leaves that end out drying out and falling of I know this is normal in the flowering stage but I dont know if it is normal so early into it

    Check the ph of the nute solution you're using to water. What are your temps? I've had the same issue. ;-)

    the temps are a little hot 85 degrees but I can't fix that b/c of money I'd have to buy a bigger a/c unit and the run off ph is from 6.0-7.0 I only have the droplet test when u had this problem did ur plants end up ok

    Yes, they made it. ;-) The heat is likely a big factor. Test the ph of the solution before you add it to the soil. It should be about 6.5. If I were you, I would get a tower fan in there as soon as possible to circulate the air more.

    i had a similar problem early in flowering and adding veg nutes at 1/4 strength seemed to stem the yellowing by adding extra nitrogen. Some strains burn through nitrogen early in flowering faster than others.

    Here is some good advice.

    You said u've added extra nitrogen flushed and other stuff all you can do now is wait it out and see if they will turn around. Go wet dry to make your roots get oxygen.

    without pics it'll be hard to help u my friend

    High justjr. Sounds like you've done everything you can to fix your problem, if it really is one. If your buds are needing support because they're too big, that sounds like a problem I'd love to have. Have you grown this strain in the past, if so, did it behave differently? Some pics could help. Does it look like normal yellowing or is it more of a nute type thing? If my buds are getting big, I try to stay calm when stuff like this happens. Good luck and keep us posted.
