Heya folks! I’m just about 4 weeks into flowering my LSD and Black Jack ladies, and they had been doing nicely until I forgot to water them. Normally I water them every 3rd day, but last week I accidentally didn’t water them until the 5th day. They were of course very sad and wilted. But I watered them with nutrients as usual, expecting them to pop back overnight like they used to do when I’d forget during veg.
But this time, a whole crop of issues seems to have arisen including some leaves completely dying off overnight (these leaves are all crunchy and curled up, although the stems are still firmly connected to the stalk). A number of the leaves also developed purple tips, and many of the lower ones turned yellow and bronze.
I’ve never seen this happen before from forgetting to water for a couple of days. It wasn’t even hot out (daytime outdoor temps were in the 50s ºF, within the tent was around 73ºF).
Anyone have any ideas what happened and how to correct? I’m wondering if the salts from the FF nutes became too concentrated in the soil when it dried out, and if a system flush would help (it’s due for one soon anyway).
