Have you added any nutrients?

Are you using RO Water? If so you need cal mag. Also really need to get a good tds meter to catch the runoff numbers.

I did about a month ago and it didn’t like it. What I saw after 3 days of nutes was horrible so I flushed it and changed the soil and pot.

You do have nitrogen toxicity signs. I would try feeding them again. Careful on the nitrogen. She’s showing some deficiencies.
What nutrients are you using?
Just want to get the correct schedule.

I have the nectar of the gods sample pack.

I just did what it said for early veg

Perfect. Follow at 1/4 dose, and you should be in good shape. If you post weekly updates, we can give you direction if you need to add more. Etc.
if you have any other questions fire away.
Happy growing!


You dont think the nitrogen levels will rise again and mess with it? How much do I pour into the pot

Nutrient schedule on their website should say amounts. The 1/4 dose shouldn’t be too much.


I have run NotG on 10 plants now and found you need to add epsom salt at 5ml per gallon every time you feed, tea, or flush. What kind of soil are you in? If you are feeding them with nutes and water with a ph between 6.8-7 that is way too high for the line. I find it works best between 6.3-6.5. Let me know what other questions you may have with the line.

You really need to know your ppm at feeding also. A slurry test before your tea day will let you know how well they are eating.


I figured it had to do with my ph. I dont have a tester yet and was just trying to grow without. This is my first plant ever so just trying to figure everything out. The soil is like mountain soil or something that I bought at d and b supply. I’ll have to get some fox farm or something and a tester

Seems all out of whack and deficient could be a ph thing since there’s so many ups and downs to the symptoms to keep seems like a lockout

@Edawg52. Someone recommended using citric acid to lower the pH. 1/4 of 1/4th of a teaspoon per gallon h2o. Helped me get out of nutrient lock out.

You can’t measure ph like that unless you know what your starting with you don’t even know if you need acid or base… so I wouldn’t do that unless you have a starting point …AFTER you mix your nutes you check ph you add a couple drops of and up or down based on where you are after mixture settles and dissolves only a few drops will raise you up or down quick… the stronger your nutrient mix concentrate the less effect up and down has on the liquid per drop it has to react with more solids to get numbers to swing


Were not getting any better bois. I have no idea what I’m doing wrong. Got the ph stuff and balanced and been doing 1/4 nutes… I dont know even my new growth is dying off

How is your new growth and how many days have you had your ph in range because some immobile elements will better new growth but old burnt growth is kinda a certain loss you wanna concentrate on new growth after adjustments are made… and what number are you phing to and have you crecked your run off to make sure your close to what you going in at … run off should be close to ph going in

If it’s not close to your in numbers you might wanna flush the soil and start over with fresh phed nutes plain water 4 gallons or so poured slowly and after the 4 gallons go back in with 1/3rd strength nutes

The new growth is still growing at a decent rate and I fixed the ph about 6 days ago I got some supplies and a tester. I haven’t done runoff yet but I’m trying to keep the water around 6.4. I’ll have to check runoff next
