Hello fellow growers,
I started a new grow about 8 months ago, from the beginning i have battled purple petioles and purple streaks in the stem, then as they flower everything looks like normal Indicas, but around 7 wks into flower they start getting cloudy trichomes but they never mature, from week 7 on they r 15% cloudy and 85% clear,
at week 11 of 12/12 they start drinking less and dying, which is normal, its how they drop their seeds in nature,
this plant did everything it was supposed to do, but the trich’s never matured, of course,
the 1st pics is at ~7 wks, the brown mess is ~13 wks of 12/12
This has been going on for 8 months and i have tried to resolve this problem in many ways,
I have spent weeks trying each new thing…
swapped from HID to QB lighting, peat to coco, city water to well water, watered more, watered less, high P low N, high pH, low pH, Epsom Salt…
Currently using coco/perlite, General Hydroponics Maxi line, Alaska Micro, in a mixture of city and well water, pH 6.3 - 6.8, EC 0.7 - 1.4 (350-700’ppm’)
There are no light leaks, it is as dark as a cave in there.!
been adding 3/4 tsp per gallon Micro because in my researching this mess i found the Maxi has no Zinc or Boron in it, cannabis doesn’t need much of either, but both r necessary.
How do I remedy the purple and get mature trichomes.???
Any thoughts, ideas, theories, and brain farts are welcome.!!
this is kind of urgent, there r 4 Nirvana seedlings that will be cloned and heading to flower in a month, PLEASE HELP them mature to their full awesomeness.!!
and they r showing the same purple’ling…
