My Temps gave been up around 82 degrees and 75 at night the rest of the plants including another Critical Mass show no signs.Wuerd.And the glossy leaves have been there since week 3 of veg.

Looks like excess nitrogen. Just a guess, With out knowing how much you’ve been feeding.


I’m leaning towards nitrogen as well. :point_up: These guys have you covered​:v:


I haven’t figured out how to post a support ticket yet,my tech skills are poor sometimes but here is what I am doing-ILGMseed Critical Mass,Organic soil ,10 gallon smart pots,ph.of water 6.2 Indoor,HLG lights Temps 82 daytime 75 night Ventilated outside48% humidity with Co2

What kind of organic soil? Have you fed them anything in addition to the soil?


Thats possible as I fed organic fertilizer a couple days before switching to 12/12.All the other plants are fine,but maybe I screwed up on this one.Only thing is the rest of the plant is normal.

Seems pretty likely this is the cause.

Possibly the soil is just really a high nitrogen content.

THANKS EVERYBODY!I love this site!


Yeah looking at the leaf super dark green too much nitrogen. Also leaf looking puffy like overhydrated. Just my thoughts good luck.

I’m used to seeing nitrogen toxicity expressed as thinner, dark, folded down leaves in which the tip is curled drastically downwards. I do see your leaf tops curling a little, but I wouldn’t think you would see the deformation on your leaves due to nitrogen toxicity before you would see the preliminary signs. I swear I’m seeing a phosphorus toxicity sign on the twisted leaves as well. My guess would be that your ph was temporarily wacky when your plant made those leaves, which caused it to take in abnormal amounts of certain nutrients, or that you burned your plant with multiple excess nutrients. The only thing I can think of off the top of my head that creates glossy leaves are russets and broad mites, which I doubt you have
