Hazmat OG in flower. Nutes? Look healthy?

Howdy! This is my first outdoor grow, from clones, both Hazmat OG (sativa). I think they’re maybe 2 weeks into flower? Hoping to harvest by the end of October. In a mix of Fox Farms soil and topsoil.

Soil was so rich, I haven’t given any nutrients yet or had a reason to. I’m considering starting some nutrients soon to support them during flower. I have the Flora Grow trio and CalMag.

Any suggestions? Just start at the Flora Grow recommendations? Also, some leaves are starting to yellow on one, but only towards the bottom. Does this look like normal yellowing during flowering?

The yellowing is a sign that she is hungry. The FF OF is probably starting to get depleted of the amendments that’s added. I’ve not used Flora grow, but you should probably start feeding at no more than half dose of recommended dosage. Once you see how she reacts adjust up or down accordingly.

I fed the girls half-strength nutes 2 days ago and it looks like the yellowing is getting worse. Wondering if I should feed again instead of just giving water (typically only feed every other water). Also wondering if it’s missing a nut that isn’t in my regimen or if this is light-related (season changing and sun moving behind a tree earlier is causing them to get less light).

Also, since I’m here, does this look like WPM? It’s not like the WPM I’ve seen on other plants- it looks more like a dried puddle… doesn’t seem to be spreading but pops up on leaves every few days… maybe a bug?

Treat with 1:1 distilled water/hydrogen peroxide 3%. Thoroughly apply to all of the leaves. WPM is tough this year.
Yes I would be feeding every time from here out until she’s done. Old leaves that are damaged will not recover. Some leaves could be dying off from lack of light. Being outside it’s normal to lose a few.
Hope this helps. Happy growing.

Awesome, how often should o treat them with peroxide? Weekly till harvest? I’ll do a bus rinse after harvest (if they make it). Very grateful for your help!

The older leaves at bottom will start to yellow and die off. I’ve not dealt with WPM but @Covertgrower has you covered. As covertgrower said continue feeding. As long as you are not getting any burn on tips of leaves. I noticed some damage that could be bug related.

I recommend weekly sprays. Definitely spray with some Captain Jacks Deadbug for a peace of mind. Safe into flowering.

Yeah, I get leafhoppers that I can’t totally kill because I have a large garden in addition to these girls. I got a little behind on keeping up with them, which is why the damage is on those older leaves. Now I go out twice a day to squish and feed all leafhoppers to the spiders that protect my plants :joy: Only seeing one or two a day at this point so I think I’ve got them under control.

It looks like the 1:1 peroxide solution has wiped out visual evidence of about 75% of the WPM spots- Applied on Fri and today (Monday) I am noticing what looks like some potential burn on a bunch of leaves. It’s on both plants so I assume it’s related. Is this normal? Should I dilute the solution more next time? Thanks!

You could try diluting more, for the most part they look good though. My only concern is if diluted too much, you may not get the results you want. I say try it, and if you don’t notice an improvement, you know what to do.

Ok! Couldn’t hurt to keep going with this strength…with 6 weeks left it’s either this works or I sacrifice my crop to 2020!

With a week of cold and rain in the forecast, I moved my outdoor plants to under an awning under 2 1200w LEDs. Also set up some fans since the humidity was 90% all week.

Now that the sun is back and I’ve rolled the girls back outside, I’m noticing some discoloration in some buds and wondering about bud rot.

That one looks like it def has some rot, but in the other colas it’s hard to tell because the hydrogen peroxide spraying has caused some discoloration on some of the pistils

If that first pic is bud rot, would it make the most sense to just cut down the crop now and dry? That way I could at least save the early buds for baking and such… the buds are so early though, no amber pistils yet… can’t find any other bud rot on either expect for one spot that’s looking a little brown

It seems like cutting and tossing these plants would be such a waste… but I’m not sure what to do now that I’ve found the rot.

I appreciate any advice!

For reference on size and state of other buds

Yeah, the more I cut, the more I find on one plant. Maybe 5/6 buds affected in the whole plant. Can’t find any obvious signs in the other plant yet… wondering if they would even be psychoactive if I cut this early

It’s definitely bud rot. I would consider harvesting now, or ride it out, and hope it doesn’t get worse.
