Miracle Grow is not cannabis friendly …

However I don’t think it would cause your plant to die from the top down

It also could be the repaired split stalk was somehow infected ? Not sure if it was at the top or above the dying happening ?

There’s so many variables outside it makes things like these very difficult to determine.

If it’s pest it’s almost best to leave it for them to eat that portion then discard when harvesting

If it’s bud rot from moisture then it will turn the buds dark brown then black- cut that portion out so it doesn’t continue to infect the plant

If it’s infection from the split stalk….then it gets serious- leaves will curl and look dead, the stems will wither and sink in looking like stem has been crushed in. - chop any of this away and use pruning tar for any wounds outside.

Best of luck with the crop, careful for the caterpillars


I screenshot it and saved it in my notes. :blush:

Is the dead and dying above the repair?

Yes. Split was about two feet off ground at original topping. Plant is seven feet tall with two main coals (both died)
