Hey guys, so I have this plant that has been going great until the last couple weeks. Everything was going pretty well (I had to flush once, but that was due to my incorrect pH reading) until she finished her transition period maybe a month ago. I couldn’t be at my place as much as I needed to during that period, and at first I only thought that I had echoes from my previous nute burn.
Now I am pretty sure that my plant is having a serious nitrogen deficiency issue, the thing is, I still feed it some nitrogen, I even tried to amp the dose of my FloraMicro to give it a small boost, But I still had foliage lost this morning. Also, since the stretching period stopped and the first pistil appeared, my plant don’t seem to do anything. I also have a plant that was planted at the same time that is almost ready to harvest and hasn’t shown any sign of problems since I burned her to a crisp, 2 months ago. I’m pretty sure that my pH is now in the correct range, but honestly at this point I just have trust issues. I don’t trust my judgement, or the tools I am using. Which is why I now resort to internet.
My question : Have I diagnosed my plant correctly? If so, what can I do to fix it, given that adding more nitrogen didn’t seem to help? I know that people love to point at a calmag deficiency, but there’s a ton of supplement in my substrate that should provide those nutrient, and I’m not that down to drop a 40$ on a solution that will ultimately be useless.
Heavy foliage loss
Plant stunted for the last few weeks
Yellow leaves (All over)
Leaves dropping by themselves
Red stem (I even have red “veins” on my main stem)
What strain, Seed bank, or bag seed : Ak 47, unknown source Method: Soil w/salt, Organic soil, Hydroponics, Aquaponics, KNF : Substrate (Soil+peat+perlite+lime) & GH trio serie Vessels: Pots, Grow beds, Buckets, Troths : 3gal pots PH of Water, Solution, runoff (if Applicable) : Ph at around 6.5, run off is similar, but I use a drop kit so the color of the runoff could skew my reading. PPM/TDS or EC of nutrient solution if applicable : NA Indoor or Outdoor : Indoor What kind of Light system? : 1000w kingled (Actual 188w according to internet) Temps; Day, Night : 26/24 Humidity; Day, Night 50/55% Ventilation system; Yes, No, Size : Kinda, I grow in a closet so I let the door crack open and use have some fans for air intake and out take AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier, : Nope Co2; Yes, No : No idea what this means, so I guess no.
This one is just to show where the plant have been stuck in the last couple weeks.
