Nitrogen toxicity after feeding nutes

I understood your meaning. Had to look back at it to see! Haha.

So stick with 3-5 day (which I have been doing, definitely waiting for drying out) and 1/4 nutes?

Experimented with 1 plant, yesterday

I kicked pH up to 7 - 7.5 in and flushed with 3 gal of high pH water.

Plant looks like it may be a bit better, have to wait until later today

Also raised the light to 24 inches instead of 18

DESPERATION TIME?

The above plant looks okay but now another one has done this overnight.

I am totally confused.

Plants were looking good and I did a 3 day dry out then water with 7.0 pH water with 1/2 tsp of Flora Micro, Gro and Bloom.

The formula for nutes is 1 tsp Gro, 2 tsp of Micro and 3 tsp of Bloom. I gave them 1/2 of each.

All of my plants have claw leaves after a day and a half.

Everything I can find says nitrogen toxicity.

Can’t be over watering a they needed water.

The numbers on the bottle represent NPK.

Micro is 5-0-1, Gro is 2-1-6 and Bloom 0-5-4

How am I getting high nitrogen levels if I am using 1/2 strength?

Should I stop giving the Micro since that has the highest level of nitrogen

OR

Am I not giving them enough nitrogen?

I should go full strength?

2.5ml is equal to 1/2 tsp. I see it looks like you adjusted later in thread, just wanted to make sure.

What are you using for water?

How old are your plants? When were they transplanted into that soil/ pots?

What are you measuring pH with? Have you calibrated?

FFOF is a very nutrient rich soil and the feeding probably burned the plants.

Do you have a TDS Meter?

Raise water in a few points to like 6.9 and see what ph is of runn off may even need to go to a 7ph
6 is low for ffof soil

Also the foxfarm forest floor is a hot mix to start with and tons of nutrience you may just be giving them too much food? I am a newb so I could be wrong sorry you are having this problem it can be frustrating to see your flowers struggle
I hope you find the answers you need to fix this
Happy growing man

@Growit that is a definite possibility ive started plants in ffof and some didnt mind other did
I would still work on ph and stop feeding for now
@Cliffs as far as watering do not water daily and give soil time to dry out as @Myfriendis410 suggested maybe every other day

Thanks guys for the responses.

And a big sorry to Bob31 for my impatience.

I bought a pH meter and my pH was high going in as I checked the soil and they all registered 7 or higher (in the 7’s)
SO…flushed with adjusted to 6.5 tap water
After 2 gallons each, the runoff is 6.0 and i am happy for now.
I am going to hold off on nutes as that seems to bring on problems

Age of plants…

Started Sept 28 and put into flower light schedule 12/12 on Oct 30

I do like this forum a bunch, it has been the most helpful compared to others I have read.

@Cliffs that bud porn would also wipe out the awsh!t from the other topic! lol we love pics here!

And were good. Lesson learned over and done. Now lets see some pics!

I wouldn’t recommend stopping the nutes. Are you getting nute burn or are your plants showing nutrient excess issues? You’ve got about 4 weeks left and not a good time to stop giving nutes. She will fly into deficiency quickly, especially after flushing the soil.

I’ll try to get some pics in the next day or two.
