My daughter sent this today. She said a couple of the plants were doing this?
Inquiring minds want to see.
Thats the truth they looked perfect yesterday.
@Jared , I don’t see a picture.
Are you outside? Frost?
No inside. Temps are running up to 83 daytime high 72 nite time low. Only thing differint that i know of is i installed more fans and was finaly able to get humidity up to 50%. Also they got there first (additional) fertilizer a couple days ago 1 tspoon fish emulsion per gallon water.
I’m deferring to others with more knowledge, bit I’ll throw my hat in as I’m open to correction.
I see what looks like mottling on my end. You said you fed additional fertilizer. Mottling to me equates to effusion (definition may change while I flip mentally through definitions). Think they may need some aerating and possible touch of calmag in some form?
As a side note and I’m not sure if you know, soil impaction is a sign of acidity, right? Acidity would cause aeration problems, right?
Yes they have been in those buckets 30 days now so i was thinking one fish emulsion feeding and go to flower in 10 more days once the plants have fully recovered from there last topping.
I just made it home so i will get the books out and check it out.
Sometimes stems get red / purple (shaded ones stay green) when they are protecting themselves from LIGHT. Same for leaves, they blotch…Some strains do this too. I also see some yellowing of the vein which points to nutrient - (nitrogen uptake)
- Incorrect pH – The pH being too high or too low at the roots is the most common reason to see a nutrient deficiency)
- Magnesium deficiency can cause purple stems. A good cannabis-friendly nutrient system has a significant amount of magnesium, but if you’re using very soft water, or RO water, you may need to add a Cal-Mag to your nutrient regimen.
- Temperature – Heat or especially cold can trigger red stems in some places. Big temperature fluctuations can also do it even if the temperature is in a good range.
- Humidity – Very high or low humidity can stress plants (especially young seedlings)
- Other types of stress such as light burn, transplant shock, or overwatering can trigger red stems
- Sometimes you’ll never know why and plants just grow out of it
Ok so i got a couple issues going on here. One it is just happening to a couple of the Blue Dreams. Then i remembered that i used a different potting mix on a couple of blue dreams. So i looked it up and sure enough the two i used Sunshine pro mix #4 on were the culprets. That is a low nute mix that i have been treating the same as Ocean Forest. So i did a cal mag foliar feed and added oyster shell powder and greensand to topfeed. Unfortunately my daughter watered them before sending the pics so i will have to wait at least untill tomorrow to give them a liquid tea feeding.
Actually the picture they sent me was of a pretty good plant. There was another that looked way worse with definite signs of cal deficiency. I will take a pick of it.
Can you please humor me? You scoped the leaves, right? I’m only asking because… Well because I can’t stop myself.
@kmac03 sorry i am missing the referance scoping the leaves?
Checked for moving bodies?
I’m probably being paranoid, but I just did a battle with the start of mites.
@kmac03 could not find anything moving but there are several little grayish specks on all the plants.
You know what boredom does? It makes me overthink a lot and occasionally I score. I’m feeling itchy about mites.
Is that knitting and thickening?
