ILGM Support Tickett
What is the strain?
Indoor or Outdoor?
Size of space?
Soil or Hydro? Medium used?
Type of nutrients used? PPM levels?
Vegetative Growth season or Bloom/Flower season? Number “weeks/days” from start of veg growth or into flowering?
Are you over watering? this alone can cause nutrient imbalances and root problems that will show as yellowing or damage to the leaves.
Hi leaves are getting a little yellow
Make sure your PH is ok and you are not burning roots with too strong of nutrients or anything like that, you don’t want them to die or have stunted growth. It doesn’t look serious yet as long as you have the things in the above support ticket under control, like PH and other things that are relevant to your situation.
Oh, btw, Thanks for sharing!
white widow soil , ph 6, indoor grow T 5 54 WATTS PER BULB 8 BULBS STARTED SEEDS JULY 25 NO NUTES. GAVE THEM SWEET MYCO TEA SHOULD I USE SPRAY BOTTLE TO WATER, RATHER THEN BOTTLE WATER THANKS FOR THE HELP
I’m not sure about the Sweet Myco Tea. I’m not a fan of using much molasses in general, however I do like using pro-biotic beneficials, aka mycorrhizae. I would not spray mycorrhizae on the leaves, if that is what you were asking about a spray bottle. PH is good for soil, so that is not the issue. It could be temperature, maybe the soil’s nutrients or this tea’s nutrients are a little hot/high for a plant this young or maybe it’s just over watering. Cannabis likes its roots to have a lot of air, kinda like a cactus’ roots, they can drown very easily.
Also actual temperature, the root zone itself can not get too hot. Ideally around 75*F is best, an adult plant with a well developed root zone can tolerate higher temps in the soil, but in general you want to try and keep them comfortable. The leaves and stems can handle very high temps as long as the roots are happy.
Thank you i wont use tea and will use less water
Maybe just save the tea for later when the plants are a bit bigger. I Google-ed it, it didn’t look like necessarily bad stuff, just maybe it’s recommended mixture is too strong for plants this small. Most likely you need to let the soil dry better between watering, feel the container’s weight when it is fully saturated and when almost totally dry to have a better idea of when to water next.
I pruned my baby maybe should’ve waited? Didn’t want the energy wasted
No, those are the energy producing solar panels. Large fan leaves can be removed sparingly if they are blocking a significant branch or flower, but otherwise do not cut off your fan leaves. Depending on how many nodes tall your plant is, you might top it, depending on your style of training/pruning, but otherwise you almost never want to cut a lot of healthy parts of the plant off. Sorry, hopefully it won’t stunt the growth much.
But why are they turning yellow? They are 2-3 weeks old
Nutrient concentration or lack of nutrients, PH or over-watering could be contributing to imbalances that could cause leaf yellowing as stated above, reference the support ticket questions that may be relevant. They do have a lot of leaves and so could be using a vegetative nutrient supplement (fertilizer mix in the watering) at this time, something with a mild vegetative NPK ratio.
The leaves in the pic have barely the tip with like maybe a mm at the most of damage, this is not a reason to cut off a otherwise mostly healthy leaf.
Live and learn…thanks!!
typically…early stage yellow leaves
- lights too close
- soil too rich in nutrients (small plants need very little nutes - next time mix perlite in with your starter soil)
starter soil comes with perlite and vermiculite already mixed in.
I do not think that light too close causes yellow leaves. Light too close would cause orange to brown burnt leaves.
