    I think some is wrong with my plant...leaves are turning yellow and not sure why and thoughts on why would be great...

    Info:
    Tent: 32x32x63
    Lighting: 96 watt + 1 (23 watt) CFL
    Vent: (2) 6 inch 150 CFM exhaust/intake
    Age: 1 month and 3 weeks..
    Nutes: Botanicare KIND BASE/GROW...Given only half does once 3 weeks ago but wasn't ready for nutes just water from there on...
    Water: Tap water starts at 50 PPM...PH to 6.5...I check PPM few days ago was a little over 600 PPM thought that was a little high so flushed it with 2 gallons then 24-48 hours I re-potted it in bigger pot roots looked nice white and healthy... 0116040058.jpg 0116040059.jpg 0116040100.jpg 0116040101.jpg


    Do you guys think it is ready for a full dose of nutes?

    or what is it lacking causing the yellowing in leaves...

    Any help on what could be causing this would be great any info I may have left out free feel to ask ...

    Thanks for your thoughts and time! :)

    Looks like nitrogen deficiency according to that. I had the same problem with my first grow and fixed it with full dosage of my nutes. I'm new at this though, so might wanna wait for confirmation from someone more experienced than me ;)

    More than likely (N) deficiency as it starts at the bottom. May also be stress from all the stuff you just did to it recently. Try a 12%(n) food 2 tbls to 1 gal ph'd to 6.8.

    thanks for info will try nutes in a day or two wanna give some time too dry...this yellowing showed up few days ago and it was time to water it then while doing that I flushed it with a extra gallon then 24 hours later re potted to check the roots and putt it in it's last home that was like a day ago...Haven't really done much but water it and re pot it and the yellowing was there before I did anything...guess it time for food...

    Do you think I should try a full dosage of both the botanicare BASE/GROW at same time? that's the only nutes I have right now ...That would be 6% (N)

    Botanicare Base 4-0-0Botanicare Grow 2-2-4

    thanks for your time and thoughts.... :)

    I always make the mistake of going to light on my nutrients. after years did I just now burn a few plants. It was obvious. Hard ram horns claw on the top. But they recovered quickly with dark green, slightly singed growth. I think it is not to bad of an idea to try and feed them till they burn. So you know. It will recover.

    The problem is that they probably have food in there. Obviously it is a pretty healthy plant. But there are a million and one things that it could be too. Who knows. Grown on.

    flushed it? why? You haven't even really fed yet.

    if it was there before everything then it's (N). you should be able to use those nutes, but i would consider getting a high (n) food.. it will also keep your leaves green and healthy throughout flowering. you know how you see plants late in flowering and all their leaves are dying and falling off? that's not natural, even though people will tell you it is.

    check out my most recent pineapple express 1 week from chop. This was from me using a higher (n) food.

    Just remember to ph your food before giving it to your ladies. good luck on the rest of you grow. shes looking good..

    I flushed it because when I was watering it when it needed it a few days ago...I checked the PPM's and was over 600 PPM's double what my other plant is and not showing signs of yellowing both same strains and grow to the same soil and everything etc.....So 24 hours later wanted to look at roots make sure they are looking good and re pot it in it's last home like I did with my other one 2 weeks ago...was thinking the yellowing was due to high PPM's because my other one is sitting at 300 PPM's so that's why i flushed it...

    haha nice buds man....thanks for info and Yes I have been watching it few days slowly then boom yellow then I gave it water checked PPM's and thought because it was double my other plant that might be why so I flushed then 24 hours later re-potted to it's last home/check roots...pretty much just checked the basic's ...I learned you can kill them with too much love with my first set of seeds I did two months ago :).... Yes I agree with that yellowing is not good at any stage and you are so right about people in forums saying that it is natural I thought it was odd but I am new to this so never said anything but total agree...

    thanks again...

    One last question...because I did flush then re pot should I wait on giving it nutes don't wanna over water it? between the flush/re-potted was given 3 gallons in last 72 hours b4 that was like 5 days ago I have notice this one seems to be drinking more water then my other plant looking at my logs...2 gallons when i flushed it and 1 gallon when i re potted it in 7 gallon pot...What would you do water it with nutes now or wait? don't want the yellow to get worse and keep spreading because it is...


    Thanks so much for your help and input...

    Stick your finger in the soil and see if its wet 1" down. If it is, wait to water. When it is dry, you can water with your ph'd food.

    It will be fine while you wait. Don't stress it, the yellowing isn't that bad. Remember, too much love....

    I started around 2 weeks after I joined this site, so around 5 years. Did a mess load of research and I'm still learning. Nothing beats your very first harvest, I mean, I still get so excited when it's time for harvest. The joy ones gets from growing such a wonderful plant and being able to smoke the best bud you ever had is just beyond words.
