So I started my 1st grow with the beginner mix pack and dropped 3 seeds earlier November. I haven’t really been keeping records on my feeding schedule but I feed twice a wk I up my nutirents up for aggressive veg and I think I over did it my 2 White widows are showing deficiencies and I can’t figure what I need to fix. I understand that photos grow slower than auto but I figured I would be further along then I am now this is my test run so I didn’t drop all my seeds. Any help with this issue would be extremely appreciated

Have you been giving any nutes yet? Have you given any cal-mag. It looks like either a P or a cal deficiency. Sometimes they come together. But your plant in veg probably wont need much P.
. It could be as simple as those leaves get wet when you water.
Yes I feed them both cal mag and mammoth p along with general hydroponics nutrients. I was thinking maybe it might be the p. But I wasn’t too sure. I guess I can leave the p out during next feeding. I also been dealing with a knats as well maybe their the issue ?
is it just that one plant in front and the big fan leaf ? how close to the little fan is it ? i wind burn leaves all the time lol or just bruised it some how playing with the girls but if jus 1 leaf you can watch for a day and look for new growth that is normal cus ya cant fix old leafs lol
N BTW nice job clean set up plants look happy
any ways Smoklahoma baby…jimmie
Interveinal necrosis is most likely the scariest thing to see on your plants. There’s so many reasons why they could appear that everyone has their own opinion.
What I’ve done that has helped, flush with ph’d water at about 2-3x size of your planter. Let that dry out the on the next watering feed them as usual.
Something is causing the ph of you soil to read very low, if they ph is out of whack you need to get it in check. Soil isn’t as easy as adding ph up or down you need to re adjust it one way or another and by pouring a ton of phd (6.5-7) water thru it until your output is at a stable level I don’t know any other way.
Thanks for replying it’s really the 2 white widows that’s showing the rusty spots on multiple fan leaves. The bubblegum was showing some stress when I did some last but it seems to be okay now .
Thanks for responding. I was reading the fox farm happy frog feeding schedule for the 1st time yesterday and it called for a flush every 2 weeks
well they look healthy so keep watchn really know more at run off when you get pen if every plant had issues at the same time look back to see if you did anything diff
Whatever water your growing with now should be fine, just make sure it’s ph’d properly
thats what i dont understand they make a good soil you dont need to add much to to not even use nutes at all well dry ammendments and mycos but thats the learning curv find ways to improve your soil and boom improve plants good luck
Have you tried to bottom feed with those plant pans?
I just got a twelve pack starter kit from ff nutes, theres a Happy Frog Soil Schedule that is different than the soil schedule too. Js. Welcome @GorillaGrower, I just used the sledgehammer flush, so far the ladies are happy. I didnt feed until now(week 5) I use the ffhappy frog also
If like to add, if you have a deficiency all of the sudden and didnt do anything out of the ordinary, the very first thing you ask is, is my ph in the correct range? Often times people attempt to fix a problem by calling lockout a deficiency and they add more food. Often times the best way to fix an issue is to use plain water and correct ph and wait to see if things self correct. If not then its on to a flush and re set. But dont flush and re set just because, as it really sets back a plants growth and normally causes shock! Do the least you can first, then do whats needed if that fails.
Yes in many ways hydro is easier! I thought soiless was going to be easier but I was wrong. In addition, my hydro plants grew way faster! And I mean noticeably faster.
Oh , dang .thnx
