Discolored drooping leaves, please help 1st timer

This is my first grow, I’m set up in a 4x4 ac infinity tent kit running the 400w L.E.D board light. I have two gold leafs and one gg4 all photos and all 27 days from sprouting above soil.
Yesterday the gg4 looked droopy and was showing some yellow discoloration on lower leafs. The soil was dry and in need of watering, I water about every 3 to 5 days saturating with run off. I fed using heavy 16 veg 2 formula. The ph of the run off last night was around 6.3
I’m using promix hp and temps usually are around 80 to 85 wirh RH varying from 50 t0 60 uaually closer to 60. They are in 1 gal plastic pots. With a exhale c02 bag in the tent.
I topped all three on the 16th and they were looking great after that until this happened.
Today all three are looking very droopy and are discolored and have brown showing up on the leaves I’m too new to diaganose any help would be greatly appreciated.


Welcome to the community! @Zhigaag

Those are ready to be transplanted to bigger final pots… 7 gallon fabric is what I’d suggest.

They also looked over watered or stressed… What soil?

Answer these simple questions the best you can. If you are not sure, just bring it to our attention. We will figure it out.

Indoor or outdoor? - size of grow?

Origin of seeds?

Regular, feminized, or autoflower?

Origin of water. PH, EC/TDS of source water?

PH and TDS/EC of if mixed solution?

Grow method? Soil, Soil-less, Coco, Hydro, Aquaponics. Please explain.

Nutrients or fertilizer system used.

What type of lighting are you using? LED, HID (MH, CMH, HPS), or Fluorescents? Please elaborate.

What are the temps in your growspce? Day / Night?

What is the RH = relative humidity in your growspace? Day / Night?

AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier?

Do you have a Ventilation system? Size? 4", 6"?

Co2 Yes / No?

How long have you been growing?

What budget have you set in order to grow successfully?

If you grow hydro, then please explain your hydro method. DWC, R-DWC, Ebb and Flow, Or; Other? Other?

16b. Size and temperature of solution in reservoir?


@Fiefie thank you
They are definetly stressed out, they were just watered last night. I’m using promix hp
Indoor- 4x4 tent

Ilgm seeds feminized photoperiod

Tap water it is 7.2 ph out of the tap. I let it sit and just checked ph at 9.4 in the bucket and the mixed solution is 7.03 that I’ve been giving them

Heavy 16 nutrients

AC infinity 400w led lightboard at 100% 27" above the canopy

Current temps are 79 degrees F 53% RH

Running humidifier

6" inline exhaust fan with 4" inline intake fan

Co2 exhale bag

1st run ever, I’m still cutting my teeth🤓

Haven’t set a budget I’m in quite a bit by now and want to see this through.

Would 5 gallon fabric pots be sufficient? Thats what I have on hand. Also are they alright to transplant in their current state?


Should i try running a slurry test?

Plump leaves like that usually indicates over watering. Also looks like a deficiency of sorts, hard to pin point it in the pics though, probably cause by over watering/wrong pH of water.

I am not a user of Promix… But pH of 7 sounds high… Below 6.5pH at least.

I wouldn’t use things listed to alter pH… I use pH up and pH Down.


Happy berfday @DieselGRWR !

The run off last night was 6.01 ph, is that acceptable? Or is it more about whats going in as well? 7.03 going in

Thanks buddy!


Soil, right? You want 6.5-6.8ph for your run off.

Make sure you don’t water her for a good 5-7 days after you get the pH sorted. She needs a dry cycle, I honestly wouldn’t water again until shit looks like this…


Promix hp so i guess its considered soiless its mostly peat? Would this be alright to transplant now? Fiefie says they look ready for new pots. Damn, ok I’ll wait for water for a while. Glad you showed the pic I’d probably have freaked out if they looked that way without it.
Also happy birthday

@Fiefie thanks for that, i have some ph up and down so I’ll try to dial it in better from here on out.

Not sure if peat is considered soil or more like a coco mix. Maybe someone who uses promix can chime in…

Also, you don’t have to let the drooping get THAT bad but don’t be afraid lol.

Here she is today, 2 days after watering (she perked up in 30mins after water)

I see @4204life uses promix, maybe he can chime in?


Happy Birthday!

I would treat the promix like soil. If I water til runoff my plants can go 4 days easy between waterings. My pots are 3 gallon I think.
Happy Birthday @DieselGRWR
