    currently growing 2 dosi do’s (DDs) fem from Greenpoint and 1 raspberry cough fem from nirvana. They are all in 3 gal smartpots w FFOF medium. Temps ph and ventilation are all on point. Blooming with Timber 4VS 400w and Rapid LED 225w fixtures.

    The bigger of the DDs has had purple stems throughout veg and now 3 wks into bloom. I’ve started to notice discoloration in the lower leaves and a bit of folding downward. Growth has been steady and is now 40” high. I thought maybe a nit deficiency so I misted with a little epsom salt. Ppms are at about 1200 so I haven’t been adding any additional nutes since switching to 12/12. Again, the leaves have been showing these signs since late in veg.

    I’ve since added RAW brand microbes for bloom as a top-dressing and have fed w first rd of FF big/tiger bloom nutes.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Lemme know if you need additional information

    you have nitrogen toxicity, not deficiency. the burnt tips and curled under leaves are classic signs.
    1200 ppm seems awfully high for a soil grow.
    i really think you should back off the feed quite a bit. i'd drop down to around 800 and see if that doesn't help.

    So, should I flush?

    have you been getting any run off when you water?
    if you haven't, then i would. if you've been watering to run off, i wouldn't bother.
    at least every third or fourth time you water, make sure you get a decent amount of runoff, it will keep the excess salts from building up in your pots.

    Yeah, I typically runoff 10% or so yesterday’s reading was at 1200ppms—I was told she needed nutes so I did 1/4 nutes of FF big bloom and tiger bloom this morning. Runoff read 1350 this morning.

    i don't think you need to flush then, but i would drop the ppm by at least a third. that's very high for soil

    How does that occur? So, what do I need to do?

    I agree with most everything @Roger A. Shrubber said except I would let dry out n flush them with 250/300 ppm n get a fan on the smart pots to speed up the wet dry cycle.

    BUT
    If it was me, I’d take the DDs n put into them in the garbage, and start vegging a couple non S1 seeds and contact GPS about getting a new pack


    This occurred from over feeding .

    I can see you are unaware of the GPS , somethingaboutgenetics, S1 scandal.
    They are not DD , they are bulk seeds ,
    That are not S1s . Go to the GPS page around page 1000 should get to in the middle of the conversation.
    But your lucky you bought fr GPS because Gu has been being 100% and he’ll offer you options and that purchase.

    I’d look hard for balls too, lots of male and herms reported .

    Sorry man , I got a pack of LT that will never be opened .

    They def don’t have balls, but I have noticed a bear of a time growing any GPS strains. Hardest grows I’ve ever experienced tbh. And my 2 dosidos didn’t grow similar at all. I’m in the states and used to buy from nirvana—until they stopped taking CC—so I have a few Nirvana left but decided to try GPS—have been generally disappointed
