Soil in pots: Miracle Grow Natures Care mixed with Miracle Grow Perlite. Target ratio was 1:4 Soil to Perlite, but its probably more like 1:5. Soil drains well.
System type? Just soil in a pot.
PH of runoff or solution in reservoir? No PH meter yet, its on order, have not received. Using tap water.
What is strength of nutrient mix? EC, or TDS: Until just this morning, had not used any nutrient. This morning used 1 teaspoon of General Organics BioThrive Grow 4-3-3 in 1 gallon of tap water. Only watered to moisten the top 2 inches of the soil, as the bottom still seems wet.
Indoor or Outdoor: Indoor. 2x2x6 closet grow.
Light system, size? 300 W ViparSpectra LED light, suspended exactly 29.5 inches above the plant.
Temps; Day, Night Temp meter says temp high/low is 64/77 degrees. Thermostat in the space was set at 75 degrees until today (4/10), when changed to 78 degrees, in hopes it would help the soil dry out a bit faster.
Humidity; Day, Night Humidity meter says Low/High is 65%/85%, but never observed above 55% when checking plant during light hours. As this is typed, 1 hour after pics were taken, humidity at 54% .
Ventilation system: 600cfm in line fan at the top connected to the thermostat, turns on to keep temp at 78 or lower. LED light has a fan in it as well. No other fan in the space.
AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier None. just the plug in thermostat connected to the over head fan.
Co2 No - although, not quite sure what this means.
On March 28, the plant was growing strong, had rebounded from some droop and slight discoloration observed prior to transplanting into the current 2.6 gallon pot from seedling peat pot. (Transplant was done on 3/21). By 4/6, leaves were showing droop but no discoloration. Struggling to figure out if its over or under watered. Leaves are getting paper thin, and crispy, not fat and juicy, but there is NO discoloration, plant is strong green in color. Drilled more holes in the bottom of the pot to improve drainage, watered on 4/6 with tap water, then again today (4/10) with BioThrive Grow included. There is no improvement in the leaf droop/curl, so thinking its not underwatered, however the leaves remain thin and getting more brittle. It seems in the past 4-6 days leaf growth has really slowed down, but stem seemed to be gave grown thicker in that same time frame.
The soil that protrudes from the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot is wet, but the soil in the top 2 inches dries out in 3-4 days. Watered this morning just to moisten the top layers of the soil, minimal runoff, but not much water used. There seems to be good drainage.
Had not used any nutrients until this mornings watering, so not sure how this could be nitrogen related. Its possible its over watered, but leaves are not fat/juicy…its possible its underwatered, but when watered there is no obvious recovery of the leaves, its just keep drooping.
Is it the pot? Do it need to transplanted into a larger pot…
