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.
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.
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 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.
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
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
So I followed your suggestions and have been carefully removing buds as they develop rot- plus increasing light, air flow, and doing regular H2O2 sprays- I was able to significantly slow down the rot and almost totally get rid of PM. It’s now harvest time! While no buds have obvious signs of rot, I’ll look closer as I harvest and I’m curious how you’d approach the harvest-
Should I do a hydrogen peroxide dip a la Jorge Cervantes so get out more PM and (maybe?) reduce bud rot as they go into drying? Or would the dip just increase moisture and make dry rot more likely? Appreciate your thoughts!
