    Arrow upside down fan leaf?

    Hello just wondering i looked at my plants a few days ago and on one of them a fan leaf had turned completely upside down i managed to gently twist it back.
    Does anybody know why this might happen?

    Don't know why it would only happen to 1 leaf, but It's a fan leaf... No biggie. If your buds start to turn inside out then I would worry, until then I wouldn't get my panties in a bunch.

    You probably need to check the ph of the solution you're using to water. Twisting can be caused by a ph problem.

    Its not a ph problem my nutrient solution is kept at around 5.2 and my soil measures at 6.6-6.8.

    I'm not going to cut of a healthy fan leave I'd rather try tying it in a position where it will be more likely to stay straight.

    Are you measuring the runoff after you feed and collect from the saucer or whatever you have under your pots? That nute solution is super low to be adding to soil. Soil is usually acidic and you need to add high 6 ph to get mid to low 6 runoff. Double check that because that kind of leaf twisting is almost always ph issue like Ms. Fox said.
