babies are sick!

problem…my plants were doing amazing, in veg stage now, started with fox farm ocean forest soil, i check ph and leave my water out to settle for over 24 hours before using it, they are in a grow tent with a humidity level at 70 percent, I began using alaska fish fertilizer a few weeks ago for the nitrates. my leaves are turning yellow in between the veins then they curl down and are now dying, i also at the beginning of the week added cal/mag to my water with no improvement. i was thinking the zinc, maganese issue, should i get the fox farm 3 bottles fertilizer? now i just need to figure out how to add pics…emphasized text


Dude… exact same thing happened to my little baby, (actually a tinny plant)
I think the soil was drying up too much in between watering - cant be sure… but id advise soaking the F out of that soil with nice 5.8 water :slight_smile: saturate them and give them extra fans blowing under the leaves
could also be a cal mag thing, I am no expert - but the curling up is her either saying I don’t have enough water or I am bust.
To be honest id cut those yellow ones off, let her grow up as those top leaves are fine! just take the yellowing leaves off, she naturally wants to focus her energy up anyhow - peace, hope I helped

Likely thats your problem you should start her with the 5-1-1 the other is to strong, mixing them would give you the problems you have

i was using just the fish fertilizer the 5-1-1 then the problem started …it was already there…then i added the cal mag…with no improvement.

Cause your dealing with zinc adding calmag will worsen the problem and your using fox farm ocean forest soil which is already rich in nutrients, what your runoff and ppm


I was thinking it was zinc. I don’t know the ppm or how to check it. I’ll test the run off should I use plain water?

Yes plain water PhD at 6.8 and you can check by investing in a tds/ppm meter would you like a link for one?
