    I am 5 weeks into flowering and my bottom two fan leafs are slowly turning yellow and getting crispy near the tip as you can see in the picture.

    Sorry for pic quality not sure what the white faint box in the pic is

    You should try and list your medium your using, your watering schedule and nutes as well.

    To me it looks like a nute difficiency (nitrogen), and under or over watering. With either watering issues leaves tend to droop. I wouldn't worry so much about the leaves but it may affect your speed and growth of the buds.

    Everyone opinion is different on nitrogen through flowering but it does need some. May want to look into something like general hydroponics beastie bloomz. Id say drop your reg nute ppm in half and replace with that. It has a good amount of nitrogen but a whole lot more phosphorous(p), and potash(k).

    Someone may have a better nute alternative too so its again just my 02.

    Your plant may yellow out in flower week 5 so your really week 4 probably . You want to aim for a healthy green plant. Back off the nutrient

    thanks for the reply, the soil im in is Canna Bio Terra Plus soil and only nutrients im giving her is Tiger Bloom and Molasses, she gets tiger bloom every 3-4 days and molasses the other days she doesn't feed nutes.. I do let the leaves droop and soil does gets dry before I water, could I have been letting her dry out too much?

    only food they have been getting is Tiger Bloom and Grandma's Molasses - nutes get fed 3-4 days depending on how medium is looking and feeling

    again everyone has there opinions on watering for soil. I am no expert in soil but it is where i started. Some people think its better to let the medium dry out a bit so that the roots search for water. I on the other hand prefer to keep a moist soil. Like now you are depriving and stressing the plant especially in flowering of water. Vegging is where you would want to let the soil dry a bit if anything if you think that helps roots. I think the roots grow no matter what and never have a problem. There growing twice the rate of the plant always so they grow just fine.

    feeding with just tiger bloom is where the deficiency is problem coming from. You want to have a little bit of n in there. As for feeding molasses the whole time i dont think you need to do either. Just the last two-three weeks of flush depending what your preference is. This is where you let the soil get dry and bit before feeding them molasses. Then when you water them they are going to be bone dry of everything and go sucking up just the molasses and you will see the buds blow up.

    Your Water System Seems Right on~ The dirt need to Dry out a bit inbetween so roots can moSpread Easyer~
    I think your About on Track
    You have some sort of Nut def.
    This is Common On the FF Nuts
    its not a N Def.~ they turn yellow ~ looks like a Mag. Maybe IDk For Sure ~
    i suggest Trying to find a Bloomer For late bloom ~ Has some other trace Nuts that the tiger bloom dosntt
    hat should correct this ~ FF has the 3 granulet System that goes w/ the Tiger Bloom
    Not sure If that has the Correct Nuts or not ~

    Also I use Molas. Threw then entire Grow ~ also Use Pure Honey

    If you are going to use one fertilizer use peter's professional or miracle grow all in ones.
    Most nutrient "lines" separate nutrients into different bottles to reduce precipitation prior to use. If you don't use the whole line, you are going to experience problems.

    Do you have a pic of the whole plant? That is a old leaf it was time for it to die. Not sure how you can diagnose without seeing the whole plant or at least more of it.

    the rest of the plant is absolutely fine looking, the only two yellow leaves is the one in the pic and one across from it that you don't see and both those leaves are the very bottom ones

    yeah a plant should grow natural w/o any Nuts
    Nuts just Help~
    Tiger Bloom Will Work thru the end ~ Stop feeding week or two before harvest

    For Next Grow
    i would go get the three bottle trio FF Bloom Its a Granulet feeding ~ I usally mix into water couple hours before feeding.
    this will just help w/ your Entire Bloom Over All
    Ones for Early bloom
    Ones for Mid bloom &
    ones For late Bloom ~ Either Way put some Photos of your lady

    Yes. That tiger bloom will get u by. It says to use more than you would really want to use tho. If your looking for a cheap nutrient get age old gold. It's truly organic and is strong. 10 bucks for a bottle

    im considering going back to my fox farm nutes. including the three additives. i have been using flora nova for last few grows, and have noticed NO IMPROOVEMENT in yeild, etc. so i think one is as good as another. however, the best veg nute i have used so far, is canna's terra-vega. the plants grew so fast......
