I have 5 plants in pots, 3 of them in identical 15 gals pots.
All use the same soil, Fox Farm Ocean.
All Durban Poison seeds came from same source.
One of the plants was odd from birth. It’s leaves very “coily”, curling laterally (not rolling up).
This plant’s runoff water is Yellow, compared to the clear runoff of the other two.
-see photos- The curly effect is much much less now, as a mature plant.
It’s pH is lower too, at 5.25 to 6. I just started adjusting pH this week. The other two are in the 6-6.5 pH range.
Another thing, the odd plant’s container is much heavier than the other two, meaning I assume that it holds more water. Yet it’s amount of runoff is about the same as the other two. This tells me it holds about the same amount of water. Does not add up. ???
*** What do you suppose the yellow color is from? Remember, the other plants are clear.
*** Why would it’s pH be so much lower? All soil came from same source, Fox Farm.
*** Could the curly plant be a different strain?
*** What causes one container to be heavier than the others, even though the runoff when watered is about the same?
Mature Curly plant: much less curly than when young.
