3 days before I’m flipping and she seems mad at me. The others are great. Her new growth is good but sadly I think the answer is yes. It started with smelly soil and an inward curled leaf then more then I dried her out and thought I was in the clear but after some light burn and tiring her down she looks worse.
Are you a single space grower? If you are, I might think about not keeping her. OR try to cut her to the minimum, taking out all diseased leaves, flush and re-pot her and go ahead and flower her. You have nothing to lose and it may expand your knowledge on future grows and get more yield out of this grow.
If you have another veg room, you could always set her aside and re-veg with a little extra care. This is a GREAT chance to really learn a lot about growing and expanding your skills. The top growth looks great. You could really trim it down to the bare best leaves you have, flush and re-pot her. Since you are going to kill her anyway, why not see if you can bring her back to life?? Would greatly expand your growing skills. It also would likely help you in the future grows.
Just a thought ! ! Jerry
Thanks @TxGrowman I do have a separate veg tent and this one is crowded. I could heal her and use new growth for clones right?
So should I trim the bad stuff and flower her with the rest or put her in the veg room and rehabilitate or just dump her? [poll type=multiple min=1 max=4 public=true]
- Kill her
- Trim bad leaves and flower
- Put her in veg tent try to rehab
- Take clones and dump her
Don’t see why not make clones as long as you got her back to good health.
Put her in a tent and try to get her to recover
I agree with Jerry, you have nothing to lose at this point.
I would take clones from all the new good growth and then I would toss her if you have the room and you have a plant to take her place…
But given the right opportunities and maybe a certain amount of time and being able to get the pH back in order you could bring her back because she isn’t that far gone so either way you have options… so now it sounds like you have some decisions to make…
Ok I setup my veg tent and put her and another plant in there which had a tough childhood. Moved my auto who is in flower to my soon to be flower tent (Tuesday I flip to 12/12). Im calling this tent the rehab. I’m beat.
Yeah, this is a good opportunity to learn. I’d start by repotting the plant and trimming back half of the Root mass.
Trim away all bad, or diseased leaves.
Try to figure out what the problem is, that way you’ll recognize this in the future.
I would definitely take clones, you can always either try to put her back into flower or back to veg for say a month or so first and then back to flower, but I’d definitely try some cuttings so that you get something good out of the mother plant, I’d never cull a healthy plant, all of this is of course with my very limited knowledge so far so understandable if you want to go with a more experienced grower or even mentor as they have more knowledge and experience than I do
Trust me I agree I never like to chop a plant down unless I absolutely have to… so I understand that … but at the same time you must understand some people have more room , more plants and don’t want to deal with trying to bring a plant back to life …although the past has told me that bringing a plant back to life is a lot easier then hoping I can get a plant to be mature enough to throw into flower as far as my scheduling… but I just give advice as I give it and hope that it’s taken well…
Did you re-pot it ? I would take the lower leaves off, the rest of the plant looks good and should be able to recover. Cannabis is a remarkably strong plant and will take a lot of abuse before it dies. Pulling these two through should make you a better grower. I wish I had a second grow space, I would love to mother a Gold Leaf !
I’ll transplant today. Same pot size? No new soil? @TxGrowman
I personally treat it like a new grow, trim her dying leaves and give her new soil. As big as she is, shouldn’t be any transplant problem. Maybe a bigger pot depending on the room you are going to flower her in. If you have any Mycrorrhizae I would add it to stimulate the roots.
It’s starting on another plant. I think I turned down the outtake fan too much (carbon filter) and it’s getting stifled. So I brought up the speed and turned on my intake fan and repositioned the internal fan so it goes over the tops of the plants. I am flowering starting tonight and all the other plants are fine
I know everyone will tell me not to flower it but…
I prefer the filter inside the tent above the lights. Mine is just below the top of the box. Some prefer it on the outside. I think it is a matter of what works for you.
I may try it outside the tent for the next grow. A mainline Gold Leaf might challenge my small grow box a little too much ! The extra ten or so inches might make a difference in letting her climb a little higher and maybe a few extra buds.
I have 1 fan for bottom of plants (blowing lightly on them), and 1 fan above them blowing lightly on them. Other than that i dont use filters
