What am I doing wrong? Here is my problem, For reference, “GS plants are just generics I got from a friend”.
The GS plants will be starting weeks 6 on Sun 25. The AK will be going on week 3 on Sun 25.
I thought I was doing good for a while. Plants all looked good with the exception of GS #2, at about 2 weeks old, I started getting some brown spots on the leaves. I read a lot on here and added a little more cal mag when watering and feeding. All looked good for a while after that. I am using 1 tsp per gallon for the cal-mag
I transplanted into 3 gallon pots and shortly after. I started having this issue again. Only now on all the plants except GS #1. All get watered and fed the same. I am only using 1/2 strength for the nutes.
One thing I learned is these don’t like getting fed every day. I have to water one day and feed the next. Which brings me to issue number 2.
Why is my TDS readings higher coming out then going in?
The flash from the camera makes the plants look a little better than they actually are.
The first is what my good plant with no issues looks like. The other 3 will show the brown on the leaves.
I thought I could get a handle on this by reading but just can’t win right now.
Hopefully some one can point me in the right direction
The good plant
