Grown inside on windowsill using pot for pot soil
The lower leaves are yellow, browning at the edges and curling.
Higher leaves are rapidly getting lighter in general and light spots on them.
Just started flowering a week or so ago.
I have given it some nutes just once, this week. I used “Professors nutrients Go Green” which has “added calcium, magnesium , nitrogen and iron” but doesn’t say how much, it was recommended by a grow shop.
There has been no improvement since then.
I do suspect it is not getting enough light but I’m scared to put it outside as I have tons of white fly in my lawn and my last grow got thrips.
What should I do???
I am guessing it needs a feed,nitrogen deficiency.
That’s a nice size girl to have grown naturally with window sun light! How long above ground ? The lower large fan leaves can be removed, it’s a natural progression that they die off 1st. This will place energy needed elsewhere when you remove these. The light green leaves lead me to think a lack of nitrogen. With your nutrients so you know the NPK strength/ratio? Do you have a TDS pen to measure your nutrient solution for Parts Per Million (PPMS) and a PH pen to check your nutrient solution. Both are critical
Feed it and take it out in the sun during the day if possible. This plant doesn’t appear to be flowering yet meaning it was started to late. You have several weeks to go and may have to use a light to finish on gloomy days.
Thanks, it’s been above ground it’s whole life. I don’t have either of the things you e mentioned as I’ve tried to do this as cheaply as possible. Looks like I’ll have to invest.
I don’t know the NPK of the nutes-it doesn’t say anywhere! I’ve added some worm poo today, so hopefully that helps. There is an actual worm in the soil too, I’m hoping that’s ok.
Worm poop is excellent to top dress, not so sure about the worm not knowing the species?? I guess an easier approach being on a budget and with the PH and TDS pen. What type of medium are you using? Coco, soil ect? Are you using tap water? Knowing these 2 can possibly get you back on track. Definitely need the PH pen and TDS. I use the Apera 20 PH and Blue lab TDS. Both fairly inexpensive and a industry preference
I’m using the soil provided in the kit from “a pot for pot”. They state that it’s all you need but I’m dubious about how it can have enough nutes at the right time for the whole growing cycle.
The plant is flowering at the top leaves but not the bottom leaves. Thanks for the advice. I’ll keep feeding and give it some sun. Just worried about the whitefly and thrip in my lawn.
Do I just feed every time I water? Or more frequently?
I grew my 1st plant in the pot 4 pot kit and it worked great for several weeks. It’s a coco mix with mainly beneficial microbes similar to Fox Farm mediums. You’ll need to start nutrients around week 4-5 from when the plant started growing. This where the PH and TDS pen comes in. In coco you water or feed daily and to about 10-15% run off coming out the bottom of the pot but don’t let her sit in that. It’ll wick back into your plant with the salts and minerals that came out during the run off. This can lead to the roots locking out and not up taking nutrients. To get the lower buds on the branches to start flowering bend them to the side and tie them to your pot to expose thise lower buds to the light.
She looks super hungry to me. I’d give it a solid feed. Ok now going on site and looking go green is a deficiency fixer upper not a feed nute even on the site I see no nute ratios for this stuff which would make me sketchy to use. U need the feed stuff they have out part a and part b with the Xtra additives. U have what they use to try and correct deficiencies if I’m reading the site right. If u have a hydro store by u I’d see about getting a good cannabis friendly nute line. If u can find jacks 321 I’d suggest that as it is super cheap works super well and last a super long time. And u don’t really need anything other than jacks itself amazon and ebay sell jacks kits it’s a part a and part b the the third part is epsoms salts solid food for the plants man.
Good stuff Mark! @Ebbybay that explains your nutrient deficiencies. I’m still amazed how tall she grew from window light, seen them 12” with 1 bud
No, you don’t feed Everytime you water. You need to look up your nutes and it’s feeding schedule.
You guys rock-thanks so much!!
Don’t know if it’s the same problem or not but I had that happen to me. It started about a week into flower after I gave her nutrients for the first time. I literally tried everything(watched hours of videos for days), turns out my ph in my soil was way off(around 4) which caused a nute lockout. I flushed her with ph’d water(6.7 it took a lot of water) let her dry out and then feed her when it was time for her next watering. so far so good
Pot4Pot is mostly soil; ~1/3 soil on bottom, with the some of the same soil mixed with coco and perlite for the upper ~2/3 medium. I’m still pretty new at this and I’ve never grown in coco, so I don’t know if the Jack’s nutes are optimal for Pot4Pot.
I grew my first in the pot 4 pot, and it’s mainly a coco blend medium very similar to FF mediums. They state seed to harvest with water only but I found that not be true. I started adding 1/2 strength nutrients at week 5-6. In coco you can feed every day
Hate to contradict you brother, but in coco you can, soil not so much. Coco is a blank medium and needs nutrients daily. Watering coco only will deplete your nutrients. Consistency is key with coco in maintaining the correct PPMs/TDS throughout the grow cycle
@OGIncognito No problem, as you are correct. I get these threads mixed up between bong hits from time to time I thought we were talking soil. I have also used peat and find it must be fed like coco.
