I’m a new grower with a 5-gallon bucket with soil & perlite. My plant has grown well in almost 3 months now, and i’m ~90% sure it’s a female since i’ve only seen mini preflowers start (correct me if i’m wrong, i can almost see male “balls” on one of the preflower areas?? I hope to god it’s a female after all this work…).
My plant has also had earlier problems with fungus gnats from overwatering, but i’ve been working on watering them less, added a top layer of diatomaceous earth & put up sticky fly strips to eliminate them as much as i could; not sure if they’re still around but i’ve seen 1-2 still in soil last week.
In the last 2-3 days, my main problem is that i’ve now noticed that my lowest set of leaves have started to decolor, wilt and fall off. I have just started its flowering phase yesterday and don’t want this to be a larger issue down the road. I hope this is simply a natural occurrence to eliminate lower leaves that don’t intake much light & bringing some nutrition upwards, but I came to you guys since you know best.
