I topped and trained within the last 10 days and today I noticed discoloration and a little droopy. I transplanted them a month ago They were watered 3 days ago. No nutes yet had them in the Fox Farm ocean and the ppm says over 1100. Is this just stress? Any help is greatly appreciated…

Also the tent is 3×3 with 2 plants.

Are you saying runoff is 1100ppm? Have you looked underneath of leaves to check for pests? Do you foliar feed?

Unless I am reading it wrong… Yes this is a reading from the run off when I last watered 3 days ago. I checked the leaves no pests. I haven’t started the Fox Farm trio because they are in the Fox farm Ocean and were transplanted 4 weeks ago. I am going to start the liquid nutrients next week. I accidently left the overflow water in the trays and it sucked it up a day later the spots appeared.

It seems you are reading it right, that is very high for seedlings or vegging! Once runoff if done dripping you need to discard it. I wouldn’t start feeding yet, most people who use FFOF do not feed for 6-8 weeks!


When I water I put 1 gallon in each 5 gallon bag every 3 to 4 days. I wait until its knuckle deep dry. Should I do more water?? Not much over flow this last time… Thanks so much for the help. They are 2 weeks from going into the flower stage. When would I start nutrients?

You want to water until you have 15% of what you put in runs off, however much that is! If you just transplanted, I would not feed until the runoff is below 700! A more accurate reading would come from a slurry test instead of run off!

Spend you a few dollars on a good 3 in one Ph pen :pen:, the cheapest one work but they won’t last a full grow before losing calibration , so your numbers on your pen can be off by .8 with the less than $20 pens , I’ve used hundreds of them , just fund you a good quality brand pen and get you 3 of them , I used this model but your plants look super healthy as of now just needs a Lil Epsom Salt 5mls a gallon !
