    Everytime about half way through flowering my plants start to yellow and eventually die off. Is This normal or do I have some sort of defiency?

    Try giving more grow nutes to compensate. They start to die off in week five -6 usually.

    I thought I might have been understating. I always ph my water before I water them. The trichomes still look clear/cloudy. Should I still pull it?

    You think it might be nitrogen? It' not just at the bottom, it' everywhere. I don' know if that makes a difference or not

    Sorry, picture isn't that great, yellowing is quite aggressive for week 6 , that's why I suggested more grow nutes as normal yellowing doesnt look like this for me,on a closer look it does look like you will be finished soon as above poster said and I agree with him, even though leaves are sparse I'd leave it and concentrate on finishing now. When to chop is a personal taste, I do it at 10 percent amber, definitely I'd wait until at least 5 percent, they carry on maturity after chop for a bit anyway, but it's entirely up to you. Many wait for 50/50 , some strain never go amber so be careful

    How are you transitioning your nutrients from vegetation to flowering?

    Looks overwatered a little and slightly over fed. Still have a month or more.

    Never feed extra N after mid-flower. Can chop any time after 50% or more of the trichs are cloudy as that's peak THC time.

    The kind of yellowing you have going on looks more like nute burn with a touch of low sulfur. All the rest of the leaves are very dark green which means they have lots of N and too much N just inhibits bud growth and resin development. Some Epsom salts will supply the needed S. A Tbsp/gal one time.

    :peace:

    i still say he shouldn't do a thing this late in to the grow apart from flush for 2 weeks and pull amber or cloudy ether way just start over the plant isnt going to get better before its time to flush anyway . at this point of his grow its not worth the worry ive been there several time just learn from mistakes and dont do them again . more nutrients don't mean quicker plant growth same with too much water but to me looks like its stilling in compacted soil and no good place for run off to go apart from that little tray all run off is getting sucked back up by the grow bag. smartest member on this pages Never feed extra N after mid-flower. id listen to him/her over the rest of the comments

    So I ended up flushing and pulling the plant. The leaves kept yellowing and getting worse. the plants dont sit in water long, as soon as the run off comes out i drain it. should I put them on a milk crate or something so it doesn't sit in the water at all? I know I'm doing something wrong cause it's happening to all my plants once they get to mid flower. I'm keeping a grow journal now (which I should have been doing from the start) so I can keep track of what I'm doing and change it up to see if I get any better results but any feedback would help and be appreciated

    I've heard that a lot but I let my soil get dry before I water again, sometimes maybe too dry. Do you think I might be under watering? And also do you think I should cut my feedings down?

    I will upload a pic of my current plant later on when my lights go off. It's yellowing very aggressively. I need help..

    Is it soil? If so you could try watering less. I know some people do different, but I'm not watering to get runoff. Almost no runoff. I'm in a soil mixture and cloth pots, which dries out much faster than plastic pots. I have some yellow leaves mid flower especially but not dramatic like that. And the epsom salt idea sounds promising to try.

    Yes it's soil. So when I water try to water enough but try not to get very much run off? I'll give the Epsom salts a try. How would I administer them?

    as far as I know the 1T in 1 gallon of water, but you won't need that much but you could save for later. Maybe try distilled water. I've heard of doing it foliar but I'm not skilled in that but you could search it here and find it. I think then watch the additives especially when lights are on because too much in the spray will burn under the lights.

    Gotcha. Now when it comes to watering should I try to get less run off?

    Mine are at week 7 flowering and the same thing is happening to mine but it’s not affecting the buds in any way. I believe it’s just natural for the leaves to turn yellow towards the end of the bud cycle.
