    Well yesterday I flushed this plant to help reduce a serious case of claw leaf...and today the white hairs on the budsites are turning brown and receding...today is the very first day of the 3rd week of flower...so what deficiency or overage causes this? As I said I just flushed and I nute this plant so very very lightly I feel like it can't be too much of anything...maybe not enough of something...preflush hairs were white...after flush some are brown...this is a 12 week flowering strain...so...any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    and a different plant I also flushed for good measure is showing the same thing...could it be something in my water?

    And anyone with input on my nutrient issues...please let me know...It looks like they need magnesium, and less nitrogen...can too much nitrogen lockout the mag?

    So,

    I am looking and looking at all the deficiencies...I have no idea which ones, or if it is an overage....why just after flush did it happen?

    Its nute burn, beginning stages. It happened because dueing flush a lot of nutes got uptaken perhaps. But yeah, too much nutes. Especially nitrogen. You know too much notrogen reduces the thc level right?

    So, would i now continue flushing...? Or is that only going to make it worse? awww jeez...I barely fed these things any nitrogen to make sure this didn't happen...I am just no good with nitrogen...So should I flush and then feed with 1/4 notrogen free nutes or... something else?

    Well, I am going to flush again, and then put sawdust on the tops of all the soil...hopefully this will help.

    Well, I ran about 12 gallons through each pot, and one is a 1 gallon, and the other is a 3 gallon...

    Ok...so I uber flushed, and today nothing looks better, can't see that it is worse either, so I guess that isn't too bad...so should I add some bloom ferts, or let them just hang out with whatever they have left if there is anything left...should I wait for some sign? The plant without all the leaf curl (DNA genetics Rocklock) (The first pic) is more yellow at the new growth spots than it was before the flush...so...any ideas? Anyone?

    Ok at a suggestion I was told that it sounds like my ph is off...well the ph of my soil is like 7.5-8 (no good) but the ph of my tap water is 7 (so it is neutral ) and the ph of my nutes mixed with my water is 6-6.5.... I am using the color change liquid for this by the way---which is why I kinda round...anyway--- So I mixed up some nutes and then lowered the ph to 5.5-6...perhaps this is wrong but that made sense to me... 7.5-8 meets 5.5-6 should get me around 6.5ish...that was my thinking...we'll see how it goes anyway...Thank you to Filthy Phil---the only person that wished to help...FilthyPhil please just ignore the following rantings:

    Here is why everybody posts the same questions-----because it is in most people's nature to still want confirmation that that is indeed their problem and that is indeed how to fix it...it isn't that people haven't read about it already, or looked for other posts....As soon as I see an issue...I google it and then I read and I read and I read...I crossreference and precheck and post check, and then when I have all this info, "I come on here and I say "Psst! Is this the problem...?" "and this is how to fix it?"... it is more about a sharing of your experience with people you can freely talk to about a passion we all share... then it is not knowing or not wanting to look for ourselves...I can and enjoy reading all about horticulture in general---cannabis horticulture in particular---(mosses are a close second)... damn a person gets lonely sometimes...can't call up people and tell them what my damn plants are doing...! Either it would be unwise, or they don't share the interest---So... *sad face* tisk tisk...

    Having exact same problem. Gave it a 0-10-10 flush several days ago and am wondering if that is what caused it.

    Wow...that doesn't look too good...but at least your leaves still look like leaves...lol...I don't know...all I can think is what filthy phil said and that during the flush my plants took up more nutes...they haven't gotten better or worse, and I have lowered the Ph and added some sugar/molasses water...molasses to feed em a bit, and the sugar to lock up some nitrogen that might still be in the soil...

    Why did you flush with nutes...isn't the point of flushing to remove extra nutes when you have added too much, and to clean the nutes out of the soil?
