    I hear you. I thought my compost would have enough nitrogen through the whole grow because it auto flower plants. Thanks. They’re almost 4 weeks from sprout.

    well nitrogen is only part of the equation. the deficiencies that you're seeing are actually not nitrogen. Looks like you're having some pH swings, evident from all the twisting and turning of the leaves. those leaf margins that are yellowing look to be potassium deficiency now that your plant is starting to flower. and it's hard to say because these things are compounding each other. pH may be your biggest issue at this point....

    Thanks. Hopefully since I started food they will get well. Notice the one plant on the left. That’s a Northern Lights auto. It’s still lush and green with no visual problems. The two that have yellowed are Green Crack. In the picture all are less than 4 weeks old.

    I was afraid my compost would have too much nitrogen already. I can tell you this, the FFHF soil is doing much better after feeding than my compost soil. The plants smaller but the buds are filling in a lot better.

    I’m curious. In your pic, I see some yellowing of leaves on the plants in the very back. I have that same thing going on with one of my plants. Do you have any idea why they’re doing that?

    In the future, what do I do about potassium deficiency?

    Could you give me a run down on amendments you added to the FF Soil?

    topdress a bloom mix about 2 weeks into flower. Dr. earth makes one that looks pretty awesome and it's not expensive at all. can get it on amazon prime for like 15$ or something i think. 1/4c for a medium size plant, mixed with compost and topdressed. should carry you through flower no problem.

    Here you go. Thanks for asking
    I have since made a new batch including high P quano and fish bone meal but haven’t used it. My original is working fine, like I’ve said in another post I am now top dressing with fish bone meal and or the all purpose fertilizer that is in the picture and everything seems to be working fine thanks for asking

    That is a plant That was about 3 inches tall when someone gave it to me it was pretty much dead I couldn’t tell you what’s wrong with it it might’ve had root rot the soil smelt funky but I did get over an ounce out of that little plant.
