Plant is beginning to look very sad

I have an Amnesia Haze plant entering its seventh week and looks like it is beginning to wilt all over. Wilting started at the bottom and has now reached the top.

  • Amnesia Haze
  • Method: Soil
  • Vessels: Pots
  • PH of Water 7.9 before nutrients are added
  • PH of nutrient enriched water is 6.3. FF trio at 35% of suggested by FF
  • Indoor grow
  • PhatSlim (Phantom1)
  • Temps; Previously the temps were high…finally able to get them down. Current 79/74F
  • Humidity; RH 50% high 48% low (Early Flowering)
  • Ventilation system; Yes 4 inch inline with carbon filter
  • De-humidifier,
  • Co2; No

I have been watering with nutrient enriched 6.3/4pH every 2-3 days. My guess is I am over watering but the top two inches of soil is dry and loose. Suggestion/feedback?

I apologize for posting and running but I have to get up at 5 a.m. tomorrow morning for work…getting tired…and sad. :frowning: I will check plant condition in the morning and repost with another picture, respond to feedback…thank you!

Took one last look before going to bed…I noticed “yellow” on the very tips of the top leaves. Drat!

Check the moisture level of the soil farther down then just 2 to 3 inches.

Doesn’t look too bad maybe a tiny bit thirsty but upper growth is almost always saggy for about 1 week after the flower stretch

How do I check the moisture down further? My finger is only so long…

Does the “yellow” on the very tips of leaves suggest “under-watering?”

You can use a stick as a moisture probe and yellow tips is a sign of slight nute burn.

Reduce the percentage of nutrients added to the water or skip nutrients, perhaps?

It could could also be a little sulphur deficiency or light burn it’s hard to tell until it spreads deeper

Thanks. How does one provide sulphur to the plant (if needed) I have raised the light up as high as I can get it.

You can go to any garden store and they will sell bags of sulphur for plants.

Thank you!

Two thumbs up for that idea…thanks!!!

Thank you to all who have responded. I am adding a picture this morning. The plant has perked back up indicating that I was underwatering. The yellow tips on the leaves seem to indicate light burn. I have raised the light as high as it will go and will see about increasing watering without providing too many nutrients to create another problem.
Currently watering a quart of nutrient enhanced 6.3 two to three times a week. One quart begins the runoff. Should I water every other day with one water just plain at about 7.0 ph?

Thank you for the information. The plant has returned to standing at full attention! Looking very chipper again! I must have missed a day or miscounted from the last watering.
