    i have an outdoor indica about 47 days into flowering

    i have been having nute burns from this damn soil(mg) and its getting really bad, as you can see i lost all my leaves, im only stuck with the bud sites which are still growing but slow. i am not feeding it any nutes at all.. it mainly all started burning badly when i flushed it but it has not done anything but burn it more. and this time its burning the leaves on the bud sites and its spreading more and more everyday. my soil is almost dry right now but i dont want to water because it would burn more and possibly burn the whole bud site! i took one off since it was burning and dryed it and smoked it and got a headchange... but that was a small ass bowl...
    so will the burning continue if i continue watering or should i chop it down before it burns more and ruins my product?

    Its important to let the plant fully mature because the Trichomes are the TCH and they need to mature. I suggest getting some nutrient free soil and transplanting. The burning will stop and then you can give the plant some flowering nutes. It looks like your plant isn't getting enough Phosphorus for the plant to emphasize on bud production instead of leaf production. I see a whole lot of bud leaves and not enough actual flowers. The plant is probably getting way too much Nitrogen.

    your plant looks weird... and man it looks skinny...and that area looks kind of dirty....overall it looks ok....not a total success...i started with mg too...and then i spent 15 dollars on fox farm(then transplanted it)...I heard someone say every time you water mg it feed time release nutes....so dont overwater it...how big is your pot???....come look at my girls on my thread....do mine look like your's did????

    well you dont really know whats my plants been through, and its been through alot! i dont know what happened but it all happened durring flowering when i fed it mg food 1/4 the amount twice, one week apart, and then all of a sudden i lost all my leaves slowly... so i stoped feeding nutes and trasplanted it mg organic because someone on this board told my it would shock it more if potted it different soil. mg organic is 10-5-5 soil...



    at one point it looked like this on mg soil..

    i know that but i think it the buds will burn up by another 2 weeks....its sad...
    even if i transplant it, my plant will take a while to adapt to the new soil because i just tranplanted in a bigger pot with nuted soil recently..

    I was right. Its getting veg nutes. It needs flowering nutes (more Phosphorus and less Nitrogen).

    For a person in your position, the best bet is to put it in some nutrient free soil.

    I use Miracle Grow Bloom Booster (soluble crystals) for flowering. It works wonderfully. If you use it though, start with 1/3 the recommended dosage.

    i hear people saying stay away from that it will just burn your plant,
    because i used 1/4 dosage of 15-30-15 mg plant food blue soluble stuff and it and got a nute burn and that was during veg

    For one thing, you don't use Bloom Booster for veg. For another thing, like I said, its all I use and I don't have any burning.

    so if i give my plant bloom booster it would stop burning up, because i might as well just chop it because it just keeps on burning and its destroying the buds. i dont think its going to last another 2 weeks of flowering in the rate she is burning it... im thinking about chopping it...

    Don't give it any nutes at first. Just put it in nutrient free soil, let it adjust and THEN you can give it some bloom booster.

    Don't chop it down yet. It won't be as potent.

    Sounds to me like you're just anxious to harvest. You seem to have it set in your mind that you're gonna chop it down. Looks like you've already decided. So why even ask others what you should do?

    im using other peoples opinion also, and what i heard is each time you flush the soil nutrients become washed away and the burning stops. i have had flushed my plant before during veg and it stopped burning. i cant repot because i already did it a BIG pot and i dont have any bigger and i certainly cant put in in the ground. im not anxious too harvest i wish i could leave it but it dont want to leave it until it looks like a burnt true from a fire on malibu hills and its not smokable, you feel me?

    You don't have to put it in a bigger pot. Carefully slide the plant, soil and roots out of the pot in one big piece (SIDEWAYS). Now you will have the entire thing laying on its side without the pot surrounding the soil and roots. gently remove the soil from around the roots taking special care not to break them. Now wash the remaining soil out of the root ball. Put new (nutrient free) soil in your pot. Dig a hole in the soil and place the root ball in the hole. Try to spread the roots out as much as you can in the hole. Bury the roots and apply water to the soil.

    don't you think its too late for that? will it the roots still grow into the new soil in time?
