I’m worried about my larger Gold Leaf Fem started from ILGM seed 2/16. Noticed small female sex pistils and preflowering 3/22. Let them get a bit bigger than Switched to 12/12 3/26, five weeks ago. First flowering pistils 4/12, now 3 weeks from pistils - so 3-5 weeks in flower, depending on how you count it.
In soil, LED 300 Wx 2 in 4x2x5 tent.
Humidity 42%, temps 70-75. 120 V 2700 rpm Powermax online fan & filter set up on 24/7(low), small intake fan blowinggently across lower stems.
sensi A&B Adv Nutrients 3/18 3/31, pH out 6.5, at 50%, 6.5 pH DI in between. In FFHF so took it easy on the veg nutes.
Cal mag (adv nutrients) 4/7, 4/11(plus sensi aB bloom 1/2 strength), cal mag 4/15. Always 6.5 in and out.
4/18 noticed browning on Leaf tips, gave cal mag full strength and started Big Bud at 1/2 strength.
4/19 6.5 pH DI, 6.4 out, 4/22 same
4/24 6.79 pH 900 ppm cal mag and Big Bud and
6.73 pH and 830 ppm out
4/25 pH 6.5 DI
4/27 1/2 Big Bud and1/2 Botanicare Rhizo blast, pH 6.5 411 ppm in
6.64 and 1092 out (!)
*lowered lights to 12" away, had raised 4/18 when plants first looked stressed
4/29 6:5 pH DI in, 6.5 out (didn’t get ppm)
5/1 clawing up bigtime . Stretched really well in past week or so, but buds not getting bigger, sugar leaves growing bigger than buds. New growth looks OK but affected fan leaves look terrible, with the exception of a lessening of the redness of their petioles.
Was lower I got the lights what caused the relapse? Or is she just trying really hard to stretch?
I’m at a loss, I’m really concerned about this plant, she is fussy and I’m concerned with five or more weeks to go how she will do?
My other GL Fem had some of the cal mag P deficiency and responded better to feeding and has heavier buds
Thanks so much for any help, I tried to give all the info above - sorry if it’s too detailed😔
