    Exclamation Help! Growth stunted leaves drying out and spindly

    Ok. So I am in currently in the second week of flowering. My leaves are drying up,

    some are curling under like talons, and on most of the older leaves the edges are

    all dried up. I just transplanted my girl into a 2 gallon pot 4 days ago, and used

    Organic Black Gold potting soil. I havent been using nutes lately because I thought

    she had a nute burn so Ive been using tap water only. My temp as of right now is

    74.5 degrees F and my humidity is 59 percent. I do have a small spidermite

    problem but I think it is being controlled. I have been using a no-pest strip along

    with spraying K+neem on the soil, bottom stem, and pot. I have two small fans.

    My PH was way low around 5 before transplanting

    and now I have been raising it with using water that is a higher PH. If anyone

    knows whats wrong please let me know. Thanks all!

    your link doesn't work, you should upload through this site. Need the pic though, the 5 ph could be the problem, I know you transplanted but did they have time to recover from that yet?

    you may have been experiencing nute lockout due to low ph during transplant. Test the PH value of the run off water when you water your plant. Your affected leaves will not improve. Keep an eye on the new growth. Do not give them any nutrients. Keep watering with PH balance water to about 6.5 to increase the ph level of the soil. Cut off any severely damaged leaves.

    Wow. I'm not sure if this is the best corse of action but you may want to consider throwing her back into veg so she can recover and generate some new growth. This will also give you more time to correct any issues as oppose deal with it during the crunch time.

    But honestly I'm not sure if it's smart to flip her back in such a sickly state. Hopefully things will work out and someone a little wiser than I will help ya on this one.

    O.O what have you been feeding it looks like some serious nute burn.
    You should start a journal so more people can see and help you out with this problem

    What kind of light are you using? It looks real crispy, and also what nutes and soil are you using?

    I think the big one is around 65 watts, smaller one on the left is about 45 watts, and the one on the right is a daylight bulb which is probably 25 to 30 watts. I was using miracle grow organic soil but I transplanted into a two gallon pot with organic black gold soil about 5 days ago. lately I have only been watering with distilled because i just transplanted. I am hoping she will perk up within the next few days once the roots get down to the new soil. I checked the runoff today and it looked like a ph of around 6 but I have the little vile that u drip the solution into it and compare the color and I heard that it wasnt that accurate.
