How often do you water and with what? Any nutes being added? What are you using for soil?

To me it looks like maybe it’s over-watered and clawing down, which I believe is too much nitrogen - but my sight could be better and the pictures are a bit blurry.


You are spot on @Matthew420 it is for sure over watering … Which has led to a crazy pH and more then likely is starting to get root rott…
@ffsoxid cut back on your watering big time…
You need to monitor , not interfere… Your squeezing the poor Lil bunny as us growers would say…
Too much luv can be a bad thing…
Let them thrive is my best advice…
Water when needed…



@Matthew420 and @peachfuzz i add water when top layers of soil is dry. about every 4-5 day. nutes? no , i use soil organic with some rock.
i upload more photo i dident water about 4-5 day now it’s day 24 from Lighting. Temp 66-72 F


Now it looks too dry. However, I highly suggest you cut and paste from below and fill in your information and post. You need help pretty quickly by the looks of it.

Btw, nutes is short for nutrients/plant food.

@yoshi @Paranorman @Hammer Hey guys. Upmost respect for your knowledge (as well as so many other here) so I tagged you. If you can, can you help out @ffsoxid


Are you using tap water? If so, is it filtered? Are you letting it sit open 24 hours prior to use? Are you checking your water PH before watering?


Are you using tap water= yes
s it filtered?= no
Are you letting it sit open 24 hours prior to use? yes
Are you checking your water PH before watering?no


You really need to know the pH and ppm of your water or you will have nothing but trouble through out this process… You really need to aquir those tools asap…



PH level is super important. Most tap water that I’ve ever heard of is not within the correct range. Nutrients are absorbed through the roots only at certain ph levels. ~5.5 - 6.5. I’m guessing you’re over 7 out of the tap.

Let’s see what the others say as they are far more knowledgeable than me.



Until you get the PH meter and the adjusting solution I’d go buy a couple jugs of distilled water. Then you know you’re at least very close to 7ph.


if i buy mineral water with PH7 or 7.5 for now is it ok? and How long does it take to see any effect.


I don’t think I’d use mineral water.


I’m more concerned with what minerals in are in the water. Plus 7.5 is too high for PH but you might get that same thing with distilled, which seems to change PH with temp change (read something about that).

Truely your best bet is to get the meter. Not sure where you live but a Walmart or some place that sells aquarium stuff would probably have it. As well as garden centers of course. I’d be trying to get it right now unless it’s the middle of the night where you are.


maybe @Oldstoner has some ideas. Sorry you’re waiting for help, I know it must be tough knowing something is wrong.


Rain water can also be a better alternative if you don’t have a meter , river are lake water works great also believe it are not its normally ph at 5.9-6.2 which is idea in the right range to not cause issues , get you a collections of gallon jugs and stock pile you some rain water or lake or river , if you have a fish tank that water is phenemanol also , I’m sorry I responded late , I work 12 hours a day 6 days a week , mainly I chime late hours when most personnel is sleeping to help out .


Thanks! Do you think based on looking at the pictures PH is the problem?


This is my Soil information

EC: < 0.5 - 0.8 ( testing method -1:1.5)
