I need help possible clawing

I am doing an indoor grow. My seeds are AK-47 feminized. I am using General hydroponics floragrow liquid for my fertilizer. My leaves are starting to curl. I have the humidity inside the tent around 60. Lights are on for 18 hours at 20 inches away. It looks like they might be clawing. I water daily and I’ve been using a rapid four

in one tester. PH level is good but it keeps telling me I could use more water. That seems to be my issue clawing is from too much water. I might go get a new tester but I just bought this one. Any other suggestions?


Welcome to the community. I don’t believe you should water daily. Let them dry out a bit. About your PPH tester saying you need more water? That is new to me. Someone else could explain that. happy growing :rofl: :bat:


Transplant it, it’s ready for a bigger home


That’s drooping, not clawing, and it’s from over-watering, let them dry out between waterings.


Interesting. I just started watering daily as the soil seemed really dry. So drooping not clawing. I will not water this evening. Will less watering stop them from drooping? Is this a fixable problem? I am three weeks in, would hate to lose these beauties.

The tester is a 4 in 1. Measures moisture, ph, light, fertilizer. All new to me. Registered on the dry side, so I began to water more frequently - daily

That is really not a good ph tester. Many growers use Apera testers like myself. You could grow without one but not advisable . PH is very important in growing. :rofl: :bat:

Using a bigger pot will also make it easier to water. Give a good soaking, wait several days before watering again…

It’s pretty easy to recover from, just don’t water so often but make sure you are watering enough when you do water by watering to runoff. I normally give my sprouts 4-5 oz of water and that gets a decent amount of runoff.

Those 4 in 1 testers are pretty useless, specially for ph, don’t count on it and get a decent digital ph meter/pen.


Many apera models to choose from. What do you recommend?

I use apera ph20 ph tester. It has solutions to adjust your unit if need be. I got mine on amazon , can’t remember about $50. Tho , very nice unit. Maybe others could give there ph testers choices. happy growing :rofl: :bat:


To transplant as two of my seedlings are only 3 weeks and the other three are two weeks. I was going to transplant into either a 10 inch pot with good drainage or a grow bag or possibly using both

The seedlings are only 3 weeks old and some are only 2 weeks old. I thought I would have to wait another week or so before I transplant. I have an 11 inch pot but it also have grow bags. I was thinking about putting the pot in the grow back to be honest with you it fits real nice


Give the big one a transplant to the fabric grow bag. Into cannabis friendly soil. Should recover nicely. Community has you covered. over overwatered


Definitely a transplant will help with the drooping and overwatering.
