There’s definitely something going on there. I’m not a living soil grower but would like to hang about and hear what it is though.

The rest of the lot as reference
I’m using a new light HLG 650 R on 3rd click.3-4 ft above canopy,
I’m new to this soil too.

I’d say they are starving. Did you do any initial amendments? I’m not a living soil guy so I can’t make recommendations on products.

ive seen this before but i can remember what the growers said it was. i ll tag a few. @Low @MidwestGuy @Borderryan22 @BobbyDigital @OGIncognito

Sorry forgot to mention they were started as seeds in solo cups with plain Promix BX. Then added 5Tbsp/5 gal pot of this Gaia Green at same time they were transplanted per instructions from the seller.

I would amend in some earth worm castings. Or earth worm tea/brew. ASAP. It’s fast release of microbes and nitrogen. That’s the only thing I know of that’s organic. Sorry. Idk for sure I’m correct as I’ve never ran into this problem. To be transparent I tried living soil and failed miserably. Hopefully we get some more people chiming in soon. Because the next stage is browning and dying of those leaves, which will likely happen anyway. Being organic is trial and error, you really have to nail it from the gate. It also means the smaller plants will more than likely go into the same stage. Hopefully I am coherent I’ve been drinking. lol.

If these aren’t autos you still have time to fix, even if that growth dies off, just expect stunting.

After the first watering i isolated the watering to just 5 inches around the plant till it gets bigger if that makes sense.

What does your water ph look like? Test your soil as well. It looks to me like a ph issue is causing it to not be able to eat properly.

I’d recommend doing a slurry test of the soil to test where it’s at ppm/ph Also test runoff water. It’s simple just do a quick search on youtube. This will tell you what’s coming out of the soil and I think that stuff is precharged with some fertilizer and you added some additional nutes so I can’t imagine the soil lacking anything.

Watering away from the plants base is a great idea! Make her reach out and find it. :+1:

Let’s see if we can pinpoint or at least narrow down what’s going on here before adding anything else that may cause further damage.

Thanks for the tag @BudzMS ! I’m guessing a pH issue, but really not too sure. @Low had a good suggestion, I believe as well, because it does look like lack of nitrogen. I’m not an organic grower, so living soil is kinda outta my scope.

I just started using sohums. I let it cook with worm castings and the earth dust base for 2 weeks as suggested. My tap water is 7.4, so i do ph to 6.5, even tho they say it’s not necessary. Check the ph and ppm. That could be the problem. Good luck.

What is the difference between these 2? Other than cost?

I thought earth dust went out of business!
Oh finally someone else that’s using Sohum too :joy: I thought I was on an island. My guy that sold this told me said to mix this Gaia 4-4-4 fertilizer (5 Tbsp per 5 gal pot) and NOT to cook for 2 weeks but transplant immediately and just add the same dry amendments every30 days then switch fertilizer 2 weeks before flowering. Easypeasy?!?
My pH is fine 6.7 but have never run a ppm before. I thought this was the easy way so I wouldn’t have to get too crazy :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
I’ve got some ED base leftover, I’m thinking of mixing a quick tea and adding that to get rolling?

I dunno but betting the one that says “cannabis” in it is more expensive

Living soil needs to always be moist. As the little critters grow they regulate ph so no adjusting. That looks like mag def. Also calmag should be foliar applied to plants in living soil. If living soil and no cooking it will take longer to set up. Do a clump test. If soil will clump when squeezed it is right. If wont clump it is too dry. NO wet/dry cycle. Will kill the soil life. Here is a living soil grow right now.

Mix 3 tblspn base in a gallon. Shake and use immediatly. The living things die in about 15 minutes no soil. That will restart the soil.
