What's my plant doing? It doesn't seem to be growing

Today’s photos below.

pH was at 5.6, topped up with filtered tap water (which is ~7.5pH) which brought it back up to 5.7. Still rather have it at 5.8, but not so much that I want to add pH Up.

Doing some bending/training using the trellis to separate stuff. I’m sure it’s a lousy scrog, but it’s my first grow and I didn’t know what I was doing much.


Today’s pictures.

It’s hard to tell, but the canopy is approximately level (the tallest bits are all about the same height), but I’ve failed scrog 101. Need to re-take next semester :slight_smile:

Flowers are coming along, today is day 17 of 12/12.

Regarding my pH issues, see my post elsewhere:



Day 19 of 12/12. C’mon flower! You can do it!!


@dbrn32 @Covertgrower @MattyBear @Myfriendis410 Does his picture look like reveg, maybe light leak??

This has been like this for a 2 & a 1/2 weeks. Seems like I have seen this before. Hopeing for some advise here. Thanks!
Hope you don’t mind @Jungle :+1:t2::v::sunglasses:


Looks like some N toxicity as well which can adversely affect flower production. But I would make the effort to look for any light leaks or light sources in the grow space for sure.


Wait, wait! What’s wrong with my plant?

(I don’t think it’s overfeeding N, I think it was overfeeding K)

I usually look for new round leaves when trying to determine if plant has went back to veg. I didn’t see any, but doesn’t mean I’m not blind either haha.

My first thought would be to check solution, if thats good maybe oxygen issue? Too hot, line siphoned full of water or something.


Are you guys saying my girl looks like she’s reverting to veg?

I don’t see any evidence of reveg. But I do see white powder mold, unless you applied something.


Hey brother, sorry! I didn’t mean to get you all in a frenzy. I noticed you keep posting that same picture and I thought you were concerned about it. I’ve seen that type of bud before on here and thought it was a problem for you and just trying to look out for you. Kind of a funky looking flower to me.
I’ll go back to my corner and be silent.

Thanks db, myfriend and covert, sorry to have bothered y’all. Just tryin to help a brother out. Guess I jumped the gun. :v::sunglasses:


No worries @HappyHydroGrower we as a community appreciate input.


Oh no! Argh. No, I didn’t apply anything. I saw in the “definitive WPM discussion” a conclusion that JMS Stylet-Oil (a paraffinic oil) was the best product. I haven’t been able to find it locally (yet), but I am planning on defoliating the bottom 1/3rd tomorrow or Saturday.

Will the defoliation be helpful? Should I delay?

I also read that silicon plays a role in the plants ability to tolerate/fight it off. See the other link where I describe my overdose of Armor Si…

There was also some discussion in the WPM thread about using Hydroguard, ?as a foliar spray?? I have that on-hand, is it worth a try? How much dilution?

My environment is ~74-75F, 45-50%RH, 33gal RDWC w/GH Flora trio, calmag, si, hydroguard. I only have two fans blowing on the plant, and one of them is … small. I’ve been putting off getting (more) fan(s), but I suppose I should get off my a$$ and get to HD for at least one more.

Help, friends help. I’m really looking forward to a reasonable harvest. @Drinkslinger @dbrn32 @Covertgrower @Myfriendis410 @PurpNGold74

My only suggestion for WPM, is to maintain air flow, monitor Relative Humidity, and apply hydrogen peroxide regularly (about every few days) before lights out. Neem oil is effective for a short period of time as well, but not recommended for use in flowering.

I have not found something that I’ve used that prevents it, but I’ve read some fungicides do. I haven’t tried any of those yet.


Well, I think it was only on a couple of fan leaves, mostly in areas that got slightly less airflow from fans. If I was going to use H2O2, how?

I think the plant is making good progress recovering from my silicon adventure. pH is behaving and PPM is in the right range.

and I dug out the 105mm micro lens and dslr, and got this.

I blame the brown tips on … my silicon adventure. Yes/no?

This is nearly 3 weeks of 12/12, what does anyone have to say about the progress?


Today’s photos. Maybe it’s just me but it looks like she’s recovering (some ways to go yet).


Today’s photos.

First, should I do anything to decrease the number of flowers? There’s a lot of them (generally, this is a good thing :slight_smile: ) @Covertgrower @HappyHydroGrower

Anyway, I had to start dosing pH UP, as the nutes were drifting down (not up anymore)… but it’s been steady without any dosing for 24h. I think everyone had recovered from the silicon adventure. My nerves are still a bit shot though.

I trimmed a bunch of lower fan leaves that seemed to have WPM on them. I also had to adjust the net pot — it had gone off-center a bit and looked like it might fall in to the bucket. That’d be bad.

Today is 24th day of 12/12.


I would defoliate some of the larger leaves, especially if it’s blocking flower sites. Some of the under canopy could be cleaned up.
Looking good for sure though, above comments were directed to keep the larf down. It’s not fun to trim.


Is there a rule of thumb about how far away from the top of the plant my HLG 320xl v2 rspec should be? @dbrn32 ?

Use the back of your hand. Heat usually isn’t a problem with diodes, but it is a good rule of thumb. If you can’t take the heat, your plant won’t fair any better.
