Growing organically with happy frog mixed with a super soil concentrate. I water them with spring bottle water, ph at 6.Recharge every 10 days. Top dress 2-2-2 dry amendments and I top dress in week 4 of flower with the super soil concentrate.
help me with a solution. I know it’s probably cal or mag but what do you guys think?
Welcome to the forum! I am pretty new to this growing thing but you will find the longer you are here the more knowledgeable these good experienced people helping you.
I will tag a couple people that could possibly help. Also if you fill out this support ticket it will help them help you. @MeEasy @kellydans @PurpNGold74
A support ticket will help us help you. Can you please fill out a support ticket? Please include what type of water you are using.
COPY/PASTE the below list into your forum post.

If you do not know, or do not use something; Just say so; Or post
• What strain, Seed bank, or bag seed
• Method: Soil w/salt, Organic soil, Hydroponics, Aquaponics, KNF
• Vessels: Pots, Grow beds, Buckets, Troths
• PH of Water, Solution, runoff (if Applicable)
• PPM/TDS or EC of nutrient solution if applicable
• Indoor or Outdoor
• Light system

Hey @Thermicdesert , Welcome to the forum.
The support ticket helps us determine the overall environment and is helpful in solving not just this issue but others that may arise as time goes on. Also helpful if you have other problems arise is to continue to use this same thread so we don’t have to ask the same questions all over again. Its a great system. Also a pic of the whole plant is helpful too.
In the meantime I can at least tell you that a pH of 6 is too low for soil. You should aim for 6.8. Also when you water you can catch some of the excess run off and test it too. Check the ppms and the pH to see whats happening in the dirt. It may be that once you correct the low pH your issue will be resolved. The damaged leaves wont heal so watch for new issues.
What is a support ticket and how do I fill it out?
And how do you post on this? I Literally can’t found the post button.the only reason I was able to post this was cause I clicked on someone else post and there it gave me the option to make a new post linking that post.
Ph at 6.8? I don’t understand this. The water ph supposed to be between 6 to 7 for organic grow, at least that’s what all my research shows me. But you saying it has to be at 6.8? Exactly? So what range are you using? 6.8 to 7.8? Sorry I’m just want to understand.
What strain, Seed bank, or bag seed
• Method: Organic soil,
• Vessels: 5 gallons fabric pots
• ph is 6
• PPM/TDS or EC of nutrient solution if applicable - no bottle nutrients
• Light system : Mars hydro ts1000 16/8
• Temps; Day, Night . 75 to 70 degrees
• Humidity; Day, Night 44 to 55
• Ventilation system; Yes,
• AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier,- none
• Co2; , No
Use a pH meter for exact results.
Test strips are for swimming pools and not accurate enough for growing.
Your range for soil is nominally 6.3 to 6.8 PH. Doing a slurry test of your media will tell you how well it’s buffered into that range.
Digital PH meter is far more precise for our uses. Unless you are watering with low solids water (R/O or distilled) you do need to PH your water in.
In general soil grows do not need supplementing with cal mag.
How many plants under that light? It’s almost enough to flower off one plant FYI. How large is your grow space?
It’s 4 plants in a 2x3.
Yeah, i think that light is only like 100W right? Everything i’ve been reading across the web before starting this venture has said 150W MINIMUM per plant in a 2x2 area. It might become a problem down the road as they get bigger. I had the same issue and sent my original light back (mine was 105W) after it made my girls “leggy” (way too tall and too much spacing between nodes). It took taking them out, LST’ing them and topping/fimming to get them to even out and some are STILL trying to do that, lol. Do yourself a favor and if it’s not too late past the return window, send that back for something much more powerful. I was running 6, under 390W and they were doing OK, but i think 4 would have been MUCH more realistic. I now have just 2 under those lights they’re excelling
“In general soil grows do not need supplementing with cal mag” Really? Ive been using cal/mag with my outdoor grow (FF fab pots…FF on bottom 3/4 and coco the top last 1/4) I use RO .bottled water. Have I been wasting my money? Thanks.
No, but like I said, in general soil contains everything you need. Kind of like me using Jack’s: calcium and magnesium are abundant in that line so would be a waste to add cal mag.
@Myfriendis410 Okay But when you say “Jacks” are you referring to Captain Jacks nutes?
JR Peters makes a commercial fertilizer line that goes by the name of Jack’s. It consists of two components: Calcium Nitrate is one and the other is like a 5-15-15 and you mix along with Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulfate) so you you see the calcium and magnesium present.
@Myfriendis410 …Got it! Thanks…Ive got some yellowing leaves with green veins…According to the "leaf symptom chart it looks as though I have a Mag deficiency on my first/outdoor /photo of Romulan.It started at the bottom (only a few leaves) and very sparsely a leaf here and there going up…The rest of the 6ft tall plant looks okay…I may try the recommended fix of this deficiency with Epsom and molasses? any ideas otherwise?
You could always just use cal mag. I never saw any real benefit to running molasses: tried it, no difference. Epsom will deliver the Mg but some C never hurt either.
