Do i have nute burn? And a question about trichomes

Got some kinda burn going on me thinks. What say you? :smile:

Also ive been checking triches for several weeks now and every site ive tested have triches with no heads so i cant tell if they’re clear milky or amber. The 1 out of 100 i can find with a head is still clear. Why no heads? Im looking on both leaves and calyx’s on every cola. They’re all just pointy and jagged and there’s also barely anymore white pistils left, they’re all red/brown

Going on 50 days in flower give or take. Calander next grow :stuck_out_tongue:

If you aren’t seeing heads on your trichs you are probably looking at trichs on the pistils. You need to look on a calyx on a flower.

Yes, that looks like too much nitrogen at a minimum. Your girl doesn’t need much nitrogen any more. Fill out a support ticket and we’ll get you some help.

Can you please fill out a support ticket? Please include what type of water you’re using.

Thanks for the reply.

  1. Random autoflower from

  2. FFOF soil, amended with organic earthworm castings and dolomite lime in 3rd week of flower

  3. 3 gallon Fabric pot.

  4. 5.8-6.5 ph going in, 6.0 ph runoff

  5. 800-900ppm going in, 700-800 runoff

  6. Indoor, Hydro Crunch 31" x 31" x 71" tent so roughly 2.5’ x 2.5’

  7. Viparspectre 600W led 2.5 feet from plant AND Hydro Crunch 2 ft. 4-Bulb 96-Watt T5 hanging diaganal in back

  8. Day temps around 68-72 F, night temps 65-70F

  9. daytime humidity 50%, night time 55%

  10. Hydro Crunch 240 CFM 6 in Inline Duct Booster Fan with carbon filter and dust screen all inside tent, 6" duct going from top of tent far away from room. Intake is just open to the room with the window cracked and a heater blowing in (multiple thermometers around tent are relatively even.)

  11. AC- just need to open the window a bit more. Ink Bird digital humidity controller with Hum/Dehum connected, set at 50% with 5% differential either way.

  12. Fresh Co2 from cracked window

More info:

13.1 I water with RO water with 1/2 strength seaweed extract, full dosage of FFTiger Bloom, and Grandma’s organic Molasses with .5ml of an organic cal/mag (it calls for 2ml/gal) Ph’d, water til runoff into the raised drip tray.

13.2 Next Watering, i just use Water, 2 tbsp molasses, .5ml cal/mag, Ph’d, water til runoff.

13.3 Every 2-3 weeks, i brew up some compost tea with Boogie Brew and Boogie Boost 2 step formula at recommended measurings, aerated 12-14 hours at 71F, water till runoff.

13.4 Back to the regular RO molasses cal/mag next watering and then start over again.

  1. I started white clovers a few weeks into Veg. i stripped MOST of them out 2 weeks into flower but there are a few stragglers i left because its supposed to help with keeping the topsoil slightly more moist. And i was told that it shouldn’t interfere with flowering, since the plant stops needing nitrogen as much it just absorbs it when it absolutely need it. Seen more than a few weedtubers and forums suggesting it so i tried it out.
    My first grow last year, the topsoil got completely dried out up to 4 inches deep just a few hours after watering, no matter how slowly i went, until runoff., With the same soil the clovers kept the dryness down to only 1 1/2 inches deep and i can tell this batch is thriving so much more than the 1st at the same age, taller, bushier denser, etc.In fact when i plucked the clovers after the switch (the roots are only 1/2 or so down) i had to add some more soil and earthworm castings i had lying around down because the roots of the plant was so close to the surface, the shade and thickness of the clovers was keeping them healthy and green and lying right on top of the soil :stuck_out_tongue:

Bump this up to deal with your current leaf issues. I would not be at 900 ppm in: more like 750 ppm with autos. They don’t take the nutes as well as photos.

Agree. Between the kelp, boogie brew, tiger bloom, and compost tea they are overfed. They look like they have a bit of nitrogen burn with the dark, waxy leaves. She’s well into flowering and no longer needs much N at all. Back off the nutes and she’ll be fine.


Righto. Cheers! I’ll start cutting down.

Should I flush it out? If so should i just use regular water or add some Cal/mag mixed in or anything? Or is it so small that i just simply cut down on the feedings from now on?

Also the nutrients I listed are all i have, and probably all i can get until, ahem, current events change and i can get back to work :stuck_out_tongue:

I was going to say it looks like the start of a nitrogen burn.

crap one last thing lol. Does N burn turn the leaves and stems purple? As with in the 2nd picture some of the sugar leaves are purpling too as well as on the whole length of the stem from leaf to node facing the light, the bottom of the stems are green.

Purple stems sounds like a magnesium deficiency aka use Cal-Mag to bring it up.

@Myfriendis410, @MattyBear

No; I think your runoff is okay. If you wanted to leach some N out it might be wise to do but otherwise you could let it ride.

Yeah, I would give it only RO for a week to let your runoff PPMs run down a bit (though she could probably use some cal/mag as Myfeiendis and @mrpeat pointed out. When you pick back up choose one nute line, stick with that and feed according to age and where it is in flowering. Sticking with one nute line will ensure macro and micro-nutrients are both proportional. It won’t need much nitrogen at all going forward, and remember @Myfriendis410 advice that autos are more sensitive to nutes than photos are.

Remember that compost tea is very dilute, but is mainly nitrogen, and you just don’t need it. If you’ve already supplemented with worm castings she’ll have all the N she needs.


I will also add to that response to say that N excess will adversely affect flower development and tends to produce a harsher smoke.
