Gelato33 Auto, popped 1/17, flowering since 2/15
2x4 closet, 200 watt Good Earth Lighting
5 gallon fabric pot. Soil, Advanced Nutrients as scheduled
PH 6.3 and 1300 PPM in with 6.9 and 340 PPM on the runoff as of yesterday’s reading.
I have flushed this plant more than I have flushed the toilet. 24 gallons of water through the soil 3 weeks ago to balance the PH of the soil was at PH7.6 and now it is between 7.1 and 6.8 on the runoff.
I can’t get rid of the yellow leaves! My concern now is, will it finished maturing before it loses all the leaves. My guess is another 3 or 4 wekks until harvest.
Autos are really finicky. It looks like ph is your problem here along with starving. If your final runoff was a ppm of 340 and a ph of 6.9 ( which isnt bad considering flower ). I would feed to a runoff of 1000 and try to bump your ph down to around 6.7 for nute uptake during flower. Here is a chart that will help
Don’t give up on the autos Growmie, it’s the medium or your feeding routine prior to the flush. Have you been feeding at 900-1000 PPms and Consistently PHing to 6.5 with liberal run off each time? Looks like you’ve got at least 6 weeks left on this one
Correct. Plants are sitting on risers. Water with a wet dry cycle, usually every 3 or 4 days, about 2 liters plus a good runoff to test. Water from tap is 8.5-9 consistently. I am correcting that with AN PH down in a 6 gallon (23ltr) container.
From my experience with autos tend to do better with a little less on PPM around 800 to 1000 at the most. My 1st though looking at the picture plants look hungry. Are you Adjusting PH back after mixing feed to 6.5 PH ?
That is what I would do.
Im unfamiliar with that nutrient line but 1300ppm seems high to me but each line can be a little different.
The high ppm in and low numbers out seems odd to me I’ll admit.
But if the issue isn’t getting better and wasn’t visible before the correction efforts, I would say try just what you said, feed, water, feed, water with plenty of run-off each time.
Im inclined to suggest dropping the ppms but again, I dont know that line and with good run-off to keep things fresh i don’t think it will hurt at all.
