Yellowing, curling and browning - First time grower


I would appreciate input on the plants I’m trying to grow. I’m very new to this process, so please try to keep your replies in simple terms. Some of the responses on here are from chemists I think. lol

I am using Oneness fertilizer. The water has been at 6.3 - 6.4 ph.

On Dec 28th I upped the fertilizer from 1 ml to 2 ml.

On January 5th I noted the coloring changes.

The last 2 waterings were only Ph’ed water and no nutrients. I did this thinking I was burning the plants with too much nutrients too soon.

Pictures are attached. I need to fix this! Please dumb down your answers. Much appreciated


Plants are hungry and possibly over watered.


Are u using calmag when u water? How often have u been watering it?

LOL! I really am a chemist. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I am No expert abd still learning truck loads! I think PH is slightly high for indoor grow, I aim for 5.8.

Also I don’t feed nutes early days as the coco/soil will have all the seedling needs. Also when introducing nutes, I do half strength of label.
