    Hi every1 so about 3 weeks ago I planted 3 gods gift fem seeds and they have all been growing well except each one has white spots on the fan leaves and some of the leaves look discolored. I’ll post some pics, please someone help me out here. I flushed last night with PH balanced water and they look worse today. I’m using “RootFarm PH Down” to balance the ph. could that have something to do with the discoloration?

    Genebanker is asking what water source you are using, be it r/o, tap, well, distilled, etc. If you were using r/o water, CalMag, (calcium-magnesium supplement), would need to be added to make up for the total dissolved solids that aren’t present in the r/o water.

    It looks like you just dripped nute water on and gave it light burn via lensing.

    Nevermind, I see it in the second pic. That’s either a CalMag issue or a pH issue. I’d bet it’s the second one.

    Are you feed organically or synthetically? If organically, stop pHing it.

    Im just using spring water with added ph down to balance it. So don’t try and balance the ph b4 watering, just let it be and get a cal mag supplement for the plants?

    ..Do you not have any nutrients? Because you’re going to need more than just CalMag, pH Up & Down, and water.

    That’s not how it works. You have to feed it in veg, too, after the first 3 weeks. Otherwise, how do you expect to have a healthy foundation for bloom?

    What nutrients and medium? If organic, you don’t need the pH stuff.

    Sorry I know your probably cringing at my newbie errors lol. I have the GH nutrient kit (flora grow, bloom, micro combo) also they are in happy frog soil I forgot to mention that my bad. What amount of calmag/other nutrients do u recommend using considering the plants r not very healthy rn.

    Happy Frog is an organic soil, and GH are synthetics. I mean, you CAN do it that way, but you’d be better off sticking with mainly one or the other. You should look into the Roots Organics Player Pack.

    You definitely shouldn’t be pH adjusting organic soil, but you also need to pH for synths. Roll all organic. $50 for the player pack, and it comes with all you should need for a few grows. That Happy Frog actually probably has enough nutrients for 6-8 weeks.

    Ok so just to make sure I am understanding u, I should not add any PH adjustments or nutrients to the water I’m feeding my plants?

    Right, particularly in that soil, which is actually feeding your plants at the moment. FoxFarms soils are Supersoils, so it’s actually ok that you didn’t feed in the beginning, but you should stop pH’ing it, and you should actually probably flush it after it dries with regular water. Get organic nutrients to feed your organic soil.

    Ok I understand what your saying now. Thanks so much for walking me thru that I appreciate it! One more question, what brand of water do u use, every common brand seems to have an insane PH level.

    ..I just use filtered tap/well water, personally. pH doesn’t matter in organics, because it buffers itself. Aim for between 5.8-6.8. Even 7 will do, really.
