Whats going wrong


A question from a fellow grower:

I’ve gone through 5 seeds of the cheese strain. this is a picture of what always happens they end up curling up at the end of the lease

I make sure that my water is is bottled distilled water, I have more than enough light above it, and then I have blue LEDs surrounding it

I have a constant temperature of 70 degrees and blowing into the grow tent there’s never any heat problems with this always happens this is my last seed and like the others it’s failing before it’s even developing if you could please tell me what I’m doing wrong I would be forever grateful


How close is light and what type? How much and how often do you water
There is a support ticket somewhere if you can fill it out it will help the mentors here help you out a lot


Are you feeding it and if so what and how much ? How old is she and what type of soil ? what’s your humidity in room how often you watering that soil looks really wet ?
But @Nug-bug is right you should fill out support ticket and you’ll get all the answers you need


Yep I am sure that there are many people who could help but we need to know has been given to the plant as far as soil nutrients lighting etc.etc.etc please fill out a ticket with @ILGM_Support they will get it to the community and the grow mentors on here will help you get this on track .

Hey guys sorry it took so long I had to create an account.
Ph is 6.0 I mixed 50/50 fox farm, ocean forest fertalizer/Mother earth coco full. No additional nutrients at all. Soil was watered rite before pic. I keep entire field slightly damp as much as possible so it’s all equally moist, no hard, dry areas. Today those leaves in middle of pic are looking more lustrous but tips are still ‘turning’ on me. The sad lookin ones from yesterday’s pic have completely curled up, but center of plant looks beautiful. I used LEDs about 20 inches away. Totals 60 watts, it’s called 'cool white-5000k lighting.

Pss… I’ve got extremely Lucky with a clone. I took last healthy stem off and it’s going nicely. I’m not touching it at all this time


Without some additional information I would say nutrient burn but that is just based on the pics. Looks really rough. Ocean Forrest Soil is ok but it runs hot. which means there are a lot of built in nutrients. Appears as though with little plants like you have they are not feeling it very much. I would suggest going with a more gentle soil for your babies. Some strains are more forgiving then others. Cheese does not appear to be.


Hey there, just wondering if you saw my responses…i had to create an account…lol


I don’t know how much experience you have… but you might want to practice on bag seeds that way you use the exotic seeds once you are familiar with growing mj, thats what I’m the process of doing before I plant the ilgm ww autos I have


Yeah I saw them
Yeah looking like it might be nut burn
But I’m going to leave the answers for the pros on this one @garrigan62 sent you info on a help ticket

OK this is my opinion of what’s going on.
The first pic is Nutrient Burn

This is what your problem may be:

When your plants are deficient in phosphorus, this can overall reduce the size of your plants. Not enough causes slow growth and causes the plant to become weak, to little amount of Phosphorus causes slow growths in leaves that may or may not drop off. The edges all around the leaves or half of the leaves can be brownish and work its way inwards a bit causing the part of the leaves to curl up in the air a bit. Fan leaves will show dark greenish/purplish and yellowish tones along with a dullish blue color to them. Sometimes the stems can be red, along with red petioles that can happen when having a Phosphorus deficiency. This isn’t a sure sure sign of you having one though, but can be a sign. Some strains just show the red petioles and stems from its genes.
So pretty much the overall dark green color with a purple, red, or blue tint to the fan leaves is a good sign of a Phosphorus deficiency. Having Cold weather (below 50F/10C) can make phosphorous absorption very troublesome for plants.
Many people get a Phosphorus deficiency confused with a fungus problem because the ends of the leaves look like a fungus problem, But the damage occurs at the end of the leaves. side of the leaves and has a glass like feeling to it as if it had a ph problem. Parts affected by a phosphorus deficiency are: Older Leaves, Whole plant, Petioles.

I feel like I need to make new soil pot with 75/25 % of soil to coco. Came home on lunch break to inspect soil. It’s wet. I think 50% coco may be too much. AND all of you guys/gals, thank you fer your advice to a newbie!! There’s a lot more tools I need to aquire…Thanx everyone! Thanx ILGM!



Personally I would add 10% perlite to the mix. 70 soil/20 coco/10 perlite



Thanx, will try that !


Let me know how it works out for ya… OK
