I’m growing OG Kush and White Widow
I’m attempting to grow organically in soil
Lighting 2 1000 watt hps and 4 450w LEDs
This is lighting a 40 sqft area.
My temps are a bit warm - highs near upper 80’s F with lights on. lows around 70 F when dark
Humidity is 45% to 60% depending on temp
Soil PH around 6.5
Plants grown in 5 gal buckets with holes drilled in the bottom and sides
My goal is to create high quality buds comparable to product that my friend grows in N. Cal.
My friend is growing in coco coir using chemical nutrients. I’m growing in a warmer / more humid location.
Many of my buds are light and airy even the best of them.
I’ve cloned a couple of the best producers and the results are more consistent.
The OG seems to have a wide variance in phenotypes while the WW is a more consistent strain in my environment.
Anyway my problems begin 4-6 weeks into flowering. Beautiful green foliage starts to yellow. Then go brown and dry. With a few of the phenotypes the plant seems to die. The symptom seems to follow the seed as clones of the same plant have performed similarly.
I’ve looked at the photos of nutrient deficiency’s and really can’t say if I’m nutrient deficient or my soil is to hot and I have a toxicity problem.
On my next grow I’m planning to have less N in the soil by using inert organic medium for the lower 2/3 of the pot and layering nutrient rich soil on top.
I’m trying to grow the plants dryer and in smaller pots
I’m working on reducing the light time high temps.
I’m thinking that the strain’s I’m growing may not be suited to growing in my tropical environment. But I love the og kush smell and fruity taste and some of the WW is crazy good.
I’d appreciate any thoughts or suggestions
Since there are so many variables any focus you can provide will be much appreciated
