I have four Cheese plants going (45 days old) and a couple of them seem to be experiencing some kind of deficiency. Wondering if anyone could help me confirm what I’m looking at in terms of the deficiency and what I can do to help them?
It started a few days ago with yellowing between the veins:
I also tested the water (well water) and found I do have elevated lead and iron levels. I’m trying to figure out how to combat that. I’ll do distilled if necessary, I have 15 plants though so that’ll add up pretty quickly. It’s only the Cheese that this is happening to.
@WickedAle yeah it was an oversight on my part…I had moved them out to finish installing the light rail and sloped floor and the dust must have gone right to them I did clean them though and they’ll have no dust anymore.
Actually I think they are fine; it’s pretty normal to see a few “harlequin” leaves. I could go out and find a couple right now in my grow and they look great. You will see a few squished leaves or ones that are crinkled, color changes etc that are just the plant messing with your head haha.
For some reason I have dyslexia on this! Thanks for catching that. I used large quantities of gypsum in whiskey making and there were other minerals added. Calcium sulfate and Magnesium sulfate (Epsom Salt).
So I’ll start back up with the nutes and worry less about the leaves unless it gets to be a bigger problem. I’m totally cool with that! They’re growing about an inch or so a day so just like yours they’re healthy everywhere else but those few leaves. I’ll sleep better tonight haha
It’s my preferred method: a good White Widow or Crystal does me just fine.
@Dex we are familiar with where you are at; the desire to hover over the plants is tough to overcome. You will have a much better time on your second grow because you know what you can get away with better.
