- Bruce Banner & Acapulco Gold
- Method: Soil Fox farm ocean forest/ happy frog
- Vessels: 20 gallon fabric pots
- PH of Water, 7.5 (only tested as of 1 week now)
- Outdoor (northeast region)
I recently purchased a hanna ph meter because in previous grows I didn’t use liquid nutrients nor test ph and plants progressed without incident and were satisfactory. This year I started from seeds instead of clones(I thought these would be hardier happier plants). They went outside on June 10 with some evident heat stress caused by a broken heater inside. So I was advised that plants needed more nutrients. I started using big bloom and grow big every other watering at 3 tablespoons per gallon and 1 tablespoon per gallon respectively. I thought the girls were looking good. They are definitely growing but now I have severe yellowing starting at bottom of AG plant. She loses a few leaves every day. And she has strange growth, sort of spiral corkscrew oddness. Apologies for the lack of proper terminology. The other two(BB) plants look okay but also have some random yellowing. I suspected nute lockout. So I tested with hanna meter. Water is 7.5 to start, 7.1 on runoff. So I flushed with ph adjusted water(ph down) of 6.5. What to do now?? Since I started with liquid nutrients they’ll be dependent on them, now? But don’t want to shock/burn them by activating all that unused fertilizer? Did the flush but it’s difficult in these pots to flush anything properly…I’m going to attach photos as I’m, still, unsure what exactly was/is the problem. Where to from here? The first 11 photos are Acapulco Gold. She started rough from the heat issue but improved greatly only to move to the current yellowing problem?
The next nine photos are Bruce Banner, when she almost died from the heat issue(inside) to currently beautiful but not without her own issues. The yellow on her is odd, more random, not whole leaves nor does she lose any leaves. The other bruce banner plant has similar, seemingly random, yellow of few fan leaves. She is in the first photo for reference. You can see the slight yellowing on some leaves.
