    plant is 2 weeks into flowering white hairs are up but i noticed today some of the bigger white hairs are turning dark/redish at the tips of the hair... isnt that suppose to happen at the end before harvest??? isnt that to soon to happen now??? only on some of the biggest hairs this is happening

    if there is something wrong can some1 tell me what it is?

    check out my journal for pics cant focus in on the hairs yet to show you the darkening

    link to journal is http://www.rollitup.org/grow-journal...baby-pics.html

    Should be able to see it at the bottom of the post. rest of the plant looks good there are a few leaves on the tips are brown but just a few. also noticed some of the leaves are curling downwards... doesnt look to bad but im a little concerned. the thing bothering me is the white hairs. maybe its normal i dont know im a first time grower but the hairs only started coming up less then a week ago and already some of a darkish color at the tip of the hair??? normal?????

    no i dont PH the water. i use bottle water w/e is on sale. from poland spring to nestle to wal-mart brand. and it looks hungry?? does that mean i need to get her nutes??? the soil i used was a soil that said it feeds up to 9 months... so i dont know if i should nute this plant. or do you mean hungry as in needs more light???? im confused now.. :confused:

    Hi WUTTER

    HUNGRY, like it needs some nutrients... get an all purpose feeder and dilute it to 1/5 (20%) the recommended dosage.. PLAY IT SAFE DILUTE :)

    a plant will turn DARK green JUST before it burns from over feeding... then the tips of the leaves will turn BROWN and die...

    If you use a super diluted mixture, you can BE 99% sure that you will not burn your plants... keep records of how much you feed your plants and at what age (how many days old SHE IS)..then on your next grow, slighty increase the FEEDING (nutrients)

    You want to feed the plants the maximum possible without BURNING your levaves..

    cheers

    I cant see the hairs in the pic so its hard to tell. If they are pre flower hairs then its normal. Even if they are not pre flowers they were probably the first hairs to show and yes this is normal. I would definatley recommend getting some kind of fert. Try Flora Nova Bloom and start of with only 1 tsp per gallon untill your plants show you that they can take more then slowly raise it up. Your plant will continulously get new white hairs as it gets mature and the older hairs will start to brown:leaf: JH
