I’m completely new to this and looking for some guidance, and I found this awesome site so thought it would be a good place to reach out!
Some of the leaves on my girl are looking a little wonky. Do you have any insight as to what I can do to correct the problem? I can’t tell if it’s disease or deficiency. Here are some details about my grow:
Indica dominant Critical Purple, autoflower
Solarsystem 550 light
Currently in wk-3, day-4 since sprout. Planted directly in 5 gallon smart pot
Organic soil using this mixture: 1/3 of my own homemade compost, 1/3 of Dr. Earth’s planting mix, the remaining 1/3 contains equal amounts perlite and vermiculite.
Dr.Earth’s ingredients are as follows: Forest humus, fir bark, peat moss, earthworm castings, kelp meal, fish bone meal, alfalfa meal, mined potassium sulphate, soybean meal, fish meal, seaweed extract, aloe vera, yucca extract, oyster shell & dolomite limes (pH adjusters), ecto & endo mycorrhizae and beneficial soil microbes.
When I prepared my smart pot I filled the pot only half way with the soil mixture then I added a little bit of bat guano before topping off all the way with the remaining soil mix. Planted the seed in that.
What do you think is wrong with her? I’m concerned about the rust spots on her leaves. Also the small leaf at the base is a bit shriveled. Should I be worried? What should I do for her?
I water her with filtered Zerowater that is 7.0 pH. Tested with TDS meter and measures 0.00ppm
The light is at 18" and cycles 20/4. I have one lower vent flap open and I’m using two mini clip fans that are positioned on diagonal corners, blowing between light and canopy for airflow. I also have a carbon filter running, she’s started to give off her beautiful scent! I’m trying to grow as close to mother nature as possible, and it’s my very first time --I have absolutely no experience with this dynamic plant. So, thank you for sharing your knowledge! Let me know if you need more info, and thank you, again, for any help you can give!!! ![image|375x500] (upload://iRPv8gKiGbPAAdxsyEZNAecMj93.jpeg)
