I am getting frustrated. After two months, leaves on my plants started turning yellow. On these photos, the leaves are at the base of the plants. My last few grows, the yellowing took over practically the entire plant. I would like to find out why and stop this before that happens. I have checked the watering amount and schedule, reduced possible chlorine, and the nutes amounts and schedule, the ph is in range as is the TDS. This has happened in my tent and now outside. As I said, everything is going along fine for at least two months. These are in Coco Coir.
Don’t worry about those lower leaves. It is normal for them to yellow and fall off as the plant matures.
How often are you watering? You mentioned schedule for that so I just am curious.
I water when the “soil” is dry down to the first knuckle or the leaves start to droop slightly.
Thats perfect for soil.
However Coco needs to be watered at least every day. Outside I would do twice a day in that fabric pot.
Coco is considered a hydroponic type of grow and needs to stay wet. Goes against everything you learned about soil grows, but coco is different. Water and feed every day.
Many thanks… I’ll try it out. I did try watering in my tent more often than what I described (like every other day) but stopped when mold started growing on the coco surface. We’ll see.
When the plants are younger they can go a few days between. But after about 3 weeks it should be daily.
I have never had mold or algae in my coco I may have to look into that further.
