Sick girls - yellow and dying leaves

I’ve got some sad girls. These pictures were taken on day 88.

Both are auto flowers, one is a Bruce Banner and the other is Girl Scout Cookies Extreme.

They are grown in 30/30/40 mix of perlite, worm castings and peat and a week ago, I gave them some Foxfarm Tiger Bloom.

They immediately began to yellow and now they’re like this. I watered to runoff with pH’d 6.42 water as a flush.

I’ve grown these strains before and know I have only a few weeks to go till harvest. Any thoughts on how I can help my girls a little longer?

Thanks everyone for the help.

Is the Tiger Bloom the only thing they have been fed?

I top feed them with Dr Earth’s veg and bloom nutes every 20-25 days.

I use auto pots for watering only. I top feed them with the Dr Earth’s and Recharge for microbes.

Thanks for the prompt reply.

Here is a pic of them just before the Tiger Bloom and they looked healthy. I’m afraid I burnt them - should have stuck with organic.


I think to much bloom nutrients

Are you growing under led lighting. If so when was the last time they had calmag. I’m thinking more of a deficiency. Do you know your soil numbers, what’s your soil ph. Fill in the ticket above and let us see what’s happening. It will help us a lot


Is that typical to have to add cal mag to soil grow. Under L.E.D. I haven’t yet. But don’t want to be behind the 8 ball. Plant has 2-3 weeks left per our awesome community of vets we have here.


I like to add Full dose of cal -mag couple times a month during flowering stage in soil. Happy growing @Newb11

Yep the plants need for additional calmag rockets under led. I grew under hps for long enough with no issues but led was a game changer regarding extras

Thank you to everyone who responded.

I’ve got a bottle of CalMag on the way - thanks Amazon Prime.

I’ll give you an update in a week or so.

Look forward to it. When it comes do a foliar spray for a few days. You should see an improvement fairly quickly
