Need Help with Diagnosis on Grow!

Hello all!

Reaching out once again to ask for a little help with my most recent indoor grow. Plant is currently in week 6 since seed and has only received nutrients from Fox Farm organics. The plant began preflower (please bear w/ me as I’m still a newbie to this and am not fully certain preflower is being represented) and I placed it in 24 hour light for about 5 days to keep it in veg phase. Currently running an 18-6 light schedule, watering daily to keep soil moisture level around 6-8/10. pH is 7 and I am using the Bloom Plus BP1000 off of Amazon (Bloom Plus BP1000.

I transplanted around a week ago and feel as though transplant shock may be playing a part as well. The branches at the top of the plant are turning purple as well as a majority of the plant canopy wilting, one branch picture includes what looks like nute burn? I’ve attached a couple images for review, my initial thoughts are magnesium deficiency or transplant shock.

Overwatering. You need to let them get down to 1 or 2 before watering again. Also that probe is useless for ph. It would probably tell you battery acid is a 7


Totally agree with @BobbyDigital with all. Those probes will get u n a baaadd spot


Agree with others, cannabis like wet/dry cycles


Thanks for the response! I’ll go ahead and modify my watering schedule and water only at 1 or 2. Also, I was told on my end to take the pH meter w a grain of salt and to only really modify nutrient add-ins if I see the plant reacting in a way that would suggest that step is really needed.

Thank you! Will be taking @BobbyDigital’s advice and will reduce the frequency of watering!

Thank you Dave! I am modifying my watering schedule and will update with results!

You should be ph’ing your nutrient solution before giving it to the plant with a decent digital ph meter. Your soil could be sitting at 4 and that ph probe would still tell you 7.


I’ve done that myself,

This makes me think you are using a probe type meter: ditch it because it’s worthless for PH.


2 posts were split to a new topic: Please help me with this plant

I think me an @Covertgrower was talking about this a few threads back but not real sure temps an humidity looks good when you say ur pH in assuming ur run off not just inlet an like @Dave101 asking ur light distance?

I deleted this post so the conversation could move to your own thread (I see he’s responded there) so this thread can continue on.

When thinking about where to grow indoors, you should also consider the temperature of your grow space and remember your temps will rise once you have your grow lights running!.
