I started this discussion in this thread:
(note this thread has my original pics in it)![20180814_102358|374x500]
And after a suggestion to start a new thread so it would be specific to my situation I am doing that. Please add your thoughts to this as you see fit.
So this is my first plant, it’s been growing outdoors, started from a seedling purchased at a dispensary. It was planted in a 12 inch container and I used Bushdoctor Root Drench in the growth phase. I prolly over pruned it and likely did it incorrectly but it grew well. About 2 to 2.5 weeks ago it started flowering pretty well then I started see A LOT of yellowing leaves, primarily single fan leaves (it spouted a ton of these right before flowering) but also some multi-leaf fans too.
Being a newbie I thought it needed more Nitrogen to “green up” but then also tested Ph and it was 7.0.
See the pic with the yellow leaves to see how widespread it was.
I got some advice here, then today went to a local grow shop and got some advice after showing them my pictures. The advice was get the Ph down to like 6ish and start feeding it for flowering, also “lollipop” it to get some room around the bottom to avoid mildew. Also, transplant it cuz my 12 inch pot it too small. I was really concerned about shocking it but the grow biz guy said it might be rough for a couple of days but it will be okay.
Okay, bought some stuff (see pic of Ph down and Pureblend Pro), I cut out ALL the yellow/browning leaves I could see and trimmed the bottom a bit and transplanted into a 5 gallon bucket.
See the new pic with no yellow, trimmed out in the orange bucket. It looks much better but I am going to watch closely for a couple of days to see if any shock is setting in. I also tested my water with nutes mixed in and the Ph was right around 6. I soaked it good since it is all new soil around the root ball (it was pretty root bound in that small container).
This is the yellowing and when I started trying to address it:
This is after trimming and transplanting:
This is the stuff recommended by the grow biz:
Anybody have any other advice?
