I have 12 plants. Four of them are Bruce Banner. They are all 5 weeks old from seed today. Two of the Bruce Banner plants have large fan leaves that look like in the picture. The smaller leaves are fine. The soil is the same for all 12 plants. Anyone know why 2 of 12 plants are like this? The other 10 plants are normal.
Can you add pictures in white light of the whole plant or plants? Be sure to tell us specifics of your grow: if in soil please tell us WHAT soil. Are you using digital PH and TDS meters? What EXACTLY are the lights you are using etc. We need this information to better help you.
OK, let me be clear, it is tobacco mosaic virus, there is no cure or treatment for it and it is contagious to your other plants, treatment is to remove and destroy the affected plants and hope they didn’t infect your other plants already.
There’s a little twisting going on in the pic of the leaf in the middle finger and the finger just to the right of it, not much but a little and the mosaic pattern is quite unique, not something normally seen from a deficiency, hope I’m wrong or maybe I need to look on a bigger screen.
Yeah, let’s not destroy any plants yet. even if TMV, some of my friends who had it or thought they had it and it looked similar to the leaf pic posted, and they just kept growing the plants out and they did not affect other plants.
The soil is a hot soil recipe I have been using for 3 years with no problems. All the plants with this issue are the same strain. I gave them some Epsom salts last watering and they are looking better. I’ve never used Calmag, should I be using it?
