What's wrong with my babies?!


#1

My leaves on a couple of my plants are twisting… really not sure what could be the issue. I do the same for all my plants and others are doing great. Except…these ones… any suggestions?!


#2

Hey man,
It’s always best to fill out a support ticket to help us diagnose any issues. When taking pictures, it’s always best to use natural or white light, that way we can make out what we’re looking at.

With that said, pH would be the first culprit, over watering would be the second.

Do you have drains holes in those cups?


#3

Where do I fill out a support ticket? I am newer… please forgive. I will take better pictures for you really soon n upload them in natural light.

Edit: Yes, they have drain holes. ALL plants have SAME SOIL… SAME WATER.

Lastly, I’m a lady…
Thanks :blush:

My bad, sorry lady :blush:

@Sativa_Believa,

Before I start I would like to Wecone you to. I L G M. Don’t forget to visit the lounge. There Slow with the drinks but have be at jokes.

You see how similar your plants are to these…
Here are two pic*s of what over watering looks like.

Over Watering
Over watering is one of the biggest mistakes new growers make, reason for this is, because they feel the need to give there plant everything and will overdue a lot of things and one of them is over watering. By over watering your plant you soak the roots so much, they can’t get enough oxygen and slowly die. The plant shows signs of over watering by: Wilting, droopy look, yellow and or dead leaves falling off, which includes leaves that don’t look dead falling off. One of the best ways to tell how NOT to over water is by, picking up the pot when it is dry and then picking up the pot after you water. (This is a reason why it’s smart to use light pots.) When you water, you want to water just enough to where you see a bit of water coming out of the bottom, not gushing or pouring out. Just enough to see a little bit, then you know the plant has enough water. To prevent over watering you can either: add more perlite to your soil, add hydrogen peroxide to your water for extra oxygen, all the while killing bacteria if any in the soil. After watering, wait a few days to water. Mj plants like a good watering and then a couple days to dry out in between watering. So it’s very easy to over water. Besides the weight of the pot, another way to test if your plant needs water is to stick your index finger a couple inches into the soil. If the soil at the tip of your finger feels almost dry, then it’s time to water again. The top of the soil should be allowed to dry out between waterings if it’s still moist the plant does NOT need watered. You can also use a moisture meter which will tell you the level of moisture down in the soil. You can buy them at most garden supplies or hydro shops.

Hey there,

They look alright for seedlings. I think they will pick up when the roots get stronger.

You say you are set up for Co2, right? I hope you are not using it yet. Plants too small for nutrients or Co2. PH, Temps, Humidity are all in a good range.

What type soil? Does it contain fertilizer?


#8

Garrigan gave you good advice. Be patient and do not over water. :slight_smile:


#9

Hi @Sativa_Believa

What soil is it ?
Is it from a bag, potting mix or maxi crop ?
What is the brand on the bag it came from does it have slow release fertilizers in it (My fav thing)
Knowing PH of run off is handy to know too, getting a cheap PH tester will help
I normally put alittle soil in to a little water, mix it up and strain out the lumps and test the water with PH meter its not perfect but it gives you an idea were you stand with PH
Soil is a little harder to do but you can get soil test kits form the hardware store.
Plants grown form seed will be different mixes of the parents and they will grow slightly different and can have different tolerances to things like PH, PPM, heat, humidity and deficiencies.

Good luck
Iva

Hi Iva,
The soil is Fox Farm Ocean Forest. I do test the soil/water with a rapitester I purchased from the grow store. It’s normally around 6.7 n lower.


#11

Thank you to all the replies!! I use Fox Farm Ocean Forest Soil. No nutes n I’m only watering about once every 2 1/2-3 days. Out of 10 plants that ALL are given exact treatment… ONLY these 2 are growing crazy. This is why it doesn’t make sense. If it is “over watering” why wouldn’t the other 8 be acting even a little the same!!! I’m posting a pic of 2 other plants that get EVERYTHING the same…


Thanks again!! :blush:


#12

They don’t look that bad to me for seedlings. I’d give them a little time to get going before I did anything. If they are in same environment and getting same treatment as 8 vigorous plants, just keep a close eye on them to monitor for distress.


#13

Just wait and watch they dont look unhappy just alittle different
They may be happier when they get into bigger pots


#14

Leaves twisting like so is usually excess phosphorus, any leaf contortions (messed up new growth or twisty leaves) is 90% of the time excess phosphorus, I only know it’s phosphorus, because my blue amnesia showed signs like this and it was because of phosphorus


#15

I have ALWAYS read that Ocean forrest is way to "HOT " or strong for seedlings,that it will burn em up. I have read to not use that until they are bigger, a few node’s at least. So you would use a light seedling soil and perlite for seedlings and the ocean forrest at the bottom of the pot, at least 6"down. Thats just my 2 cents. These other guys are giving u good advise and are more experienced than me


#16

I went to the Hydroponic Giant n i specifically said I had baby Bitches n he recommended I use ocean forest.


#17

Thank you!


#18

Extra phosphorus from where?!


#19

As I’m doing… but thank you for your reply. I have 1 chick that topples over them all…tons is new growth… just think these girls are slow


#20

I have heard for seedling start with Fox Farms Happy Frog, then the ocean forrest on the bottom layer so the plant will hopefully be mature enough to handle the ocean forrest when the roots reach it a couple weeks into the grow
