They were all green until about three days ago. Please help!!!:disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved:

Agree with @Breezy . Look hungry. They will require more food now than ever. No idea on specific amounts for your nutes though.

Craft blend will take some time to correct the issue. If you feel you need to do something a tea of some sort might be quicker.

Looks hungry, needs more nitrogen, no clue on the nutes you’re using though.

@AAA has you on the right path.

Your in small pots and are running soil clearly, looks like your 3 or 4 weeks into flower so they have used evey bit of nutrients in the soil.
Most of the organic raw materials your adding take time to breakdown and then be absorbed by the plant. Personally that’s why I don’t

I’m not familiar with the NPK ratios of many of those, but the lack nitrogen is the one that’s causing the yellowing.

I also forgot to mention. I never try and diagnose a problem, I just pot up and add some top dress. Potting up is my answer for everything. Late on your rent? Pot up…

And thanks to @Nicky for pointing out your pot size!

You will be good to go. Once your soil is β€œsettled” and the microbes are working top dressing with compost and bokashi seems to work for me. Just a little. I also water with coconut water almost every time I water.

The key is moderation. All too often we diagnose issues, possibly incorrect, dump a bunch of additives in/on, and end up creating a bigger problem. Then we start throwing more stuff at the plant. They need time to recover, just like people.

Thank you so much everyone for your help!!! Most likely I will doing a little compost tea tomorrow and hope that will help.

It will if it has nitrogen sources in it.
Be aware that your leafs will never recover, as your in flower the only thing you can do is prevent further damage.

Teas are broken down and a more available nutrient it’s basically organic version of feeing nutrients.
So do you know what type of tea your going to feed?
This is something outside of my personal experience but just trying to guide you on the right path.

Ps @AAA made me laugh out loud β€œlate on your rent? Pot up!”
