Clone deficiencies

Recently transplanted my clones and im not sure whats going on with them. Thought they were hungry and possibly suffering from not being hardened off (low humidity 45-50 due to the cold) but now that looks like either sulfur or nitrogen and zinc or potassium issues. Before they were transplanted they were nice and green now they are fading and getting dark spots. Recently fed them with my current veg water at transplant till runoff with some recharge. Just checked the medium ph. Its straight coco. They were all 5.9-6.0. Always water 5.9-6.0 as well. Checked my other plants that are doing fine and they are 6.2-6.4 medium ph. What can I do to help these ladies? Umols are about 350 and they are 35 inches from the light and 30 inches away from UVA. Most concerned about the GDP as its taken the most damage so far @MidwestGuy @Hellraiser @Caligurl @Newt @Myfriendis410 any help is greatly appreciated. Let me know what I mucked up so I can better myself in the future :slight_smile:





Clones often look pretty bad for the first few weeks. I’d only suggest low dose nutes and a dome to help uptake moisture. Not knowing the state of the roots I can’t do any more than that.

I’ll get on that dome right away because I kinda suspected it to be the main culprit

Here’s the temp fix till I can go buy something else that will fit over these ladies because the GSC is almost touching the top. Thought maybe some 2 liter soda bottles if it doesn’t smush the leaves together

If they are rooted (and only if), then they no longer need to take in as much of their moisture through the leaves, and the leaves can be further trimmed so that they can focus on new growth.

Yeah they were rootbound in the solo cups before transplanting. I was thinking about cutting off the damaged leafs that were initially trimmed for the cloning process

That’s what I do. Once they have good roots. Let them focus on growing rather than repairing.

That yellowing makes me think,root problems. Root rot?
I haven’t cloned but I might recommend some Recharge or Great White? Can’t hurt… will help,roots

When u transplanted from the root bound solos. Did u break up the root mass a bit by squeezing and loosening it up some. It will get the roots to blast off thru the soil a bit better and faster. Don’t go all crazy ripping roots just break up the medium a touch to loosen up the blob of root. I just massage the roots with a gentle squeeze all around the root mass then cover with great white and drop in the home.

I broke them up a little bit and then threw some great white in as well. Hoping they bounce back soon i got them domed to keep humidity up for now

Might as well so the plant doesn’t waste resources trying to fix them, then just see what the new growth looks like.

Whats this deficiency? I do believe my ladies are suffering from either zinc, potassium or magnesium deficiency. Thoughts? I’m adding 25 ml calmag to 5 gal because this problem has been persistent the past 2 weeks. Also added 5 ml bone meal. Bigger one is probably too close to the light tbh and ill deal with that if need be. They were lightening up to a brighter green and the spots were getting better last week but came back this week might be too early to tell if last weeks fix helped it or not





Still the same ppm water and always water 5.9-6.0. More details above but when soil ph checked they were all about 6.2-6.4 ph

In soil, I always shoot for a pH of 6.5.

I wasn’t sure how to word what the meter was so I can see the confusion on my medium. Im growing in canna coco coir bricks. I’ll just call it a ph probe next time so there is more clarity
