Now the only reason I ask if it’s nutrient burn, is because I fed 2 of the smallest ones nutes not know what I was even up to… Please help it seems to be spreading
Please help! First time grower.. Rust like spots over the leafs of my plant? What is is? Deficiencies, Nutrient burn or fungus?
It’s also been like this for well 2 weeks. Maybe more I’m not entirely sure
What’s the ph of your water your using to feed.
6.5-7ph. Originally I started off on a 5.5-6 and my plants were doing great. But introduced them to nutrients fairly early in my eyes now that I think about it as I have no clue what is what just yet I also have been told I could be a deficiency? I do have some lime and epsom salts and was going to see if it were a deficiency and see if that worked over the week otherwise if that didn’t work I was going to flush them out and hopefully get them back on track. But as you can understand I don’t want to fuck my plants around too much as I’m very new to this game
I run mine a little closer to 6.4 - 6.7 on ph fluctuating a little to let different nutes thru the week. Do you use a cal-mag I had a similar problem early and caught it.
Yeah I might have to use ph 6.4 to 6.7 as you said. And don’t have cal-mag but I do have epsom salts for magnesium and lime for calcium. I was going to use the epsom salts and lime next watering schedule or should I do it ASAP?
And to answer your question properly no I haven’t used any cal-mag at all throughout my grow
Yes I would I had to start using it once a week to clear up spots on one of mine. Within a week I didn’t have anymore problems as of yet lol
Are you being careful to not get any water on the leaves when you feed or water? And welcome to the community!
Welcome to the forum.
Soil being used?
Ph of soil?
Looks like calcium deficiency to me.
If you having a PH problem, adding Lime will raise further your PH and lockout the calcium even if it exists.
There the other issue. When I first started feeding them I had the worse watercan available and we’ll got my leaves wet. So I ended up going to buy a better sprayer so I didn’t get any water drops/feed onto my leaves
Hey cheers and the soil I’m using is call cannatera I’m pretty sure. And ph level in the soil is an 7.5-8. I’m not too sure if this is good or not
Sweet spot for PH of soil is 6.5 with a range from 6-7
How did you test the soil PH to get your readings?
What tool are you using to test it?
Like skydiver said your ph is to high. The spots look like rust spots caused by getting water on the leaves. Keep an eye on them I could be mistaken. If no more show up you’ll be ok once you get your ph down.
Blue lab soil ph pen
Sweet as I’ll give that a try. Any suggestions to fixing a ph problem?
You can get bottles of ph up and ph down. That’s what I use. There’s also homegrown items around the house you can use but I’m drawing a blank lol sorry. Is the new growth growing out without the spots?
Oh yes I do use ph up and ph down. And usually drop my ph levels down to 6.5 from 7. But it could be from my liquid nutrients when I add them to the water. Does liquid nutrients change pH levels? I haven’t actually tested to see. And yes the new growth on the plant is all good no spots at all that I’ve noticed any way
