Easy Ryder 150 W HPS - first grow
Posted 07 May 2012 - 02:17 PM
it's been 32 days since i germinated my two EZs but just now I decided to have a journal because I really need some advice, since my plants are confusing me.
First, here's a quick overview of my setup:
Strain: Easy Ryder (autoflower, fem.)
Light: 150 W HPS on a 20/4 light cycle, distance from plants about 25-30 cm (11 inch)
Soil: regular soil for flowering plants - brand is Compo Sana with 3% perlite, pH 5,5-6,5 N = 200-450 mg/l P = 200-400 mg/l K = 200-400 mg/l.
Day 16 - first time LST:
Day 18 - first pistils:
Day 23 - yellowing of leave tips:
Day 29 - first time adding nutrients:
OK, this brings us to present day, day 32/33 - bottom leaves seriously dying:
...but besides that, plants look quite fine:
I water them every 4-5 days with about half liter of tap water, with few drops of lemon, pH measured at about 6 - 6.5.
Started feeding them ferts for flowering plants 4 days ago for the first time (Compo Guano N:P:K = 4:5:6), 1/2 of recommended dose. Today I gave them another 1/2 dose of ferts, and I won't be fertilizing again for 2 next waterings.
Could somebody tell what's wrong with this plants??
At first only lowest leaves started yellowing, I cut them off, then the next pair yellowed and dried out, I cut them too, now the third pair is yellowing and drying, and fourth pair starts to yellow too. Buds and upper leaves look quite well, but I'm affraid that whatever's wrong with the plants will spread upward onto the whole plant.

Anyway, i corrected pH of my tap water to be about 6 - 6.5, first with lemon juice, and then when I added nutes for the first time, it was about 6 - 6.5 without need of lemon. Bun run off was slightly more acidic about 5, 5-5. I don't have precise measure, I have some drops for fish tanks.

Unfortunately, I have no idea what the yellowing leaves mean, sorry.

I suspect that the yellowing is N deficiency. Today I bought a new fertilizer because the one that I was using was over 6 years old and I didn't see any improvement on the plants with it. I bought blooming fertilizer (N:P:K = 6:8:8) and fed 1/2 of dose today. Here are my plants right after watering/feeding:
Hope they'll recover now

Still some confusion between my plants, one seems to have recovered, but the other one continues do yellow and loose leaves. They're having the same treatment so I cannot imagine what is the matter.
The one that has ben less developed is now the one that's doing much better and now has thickest flowers.
I just hope the one that's still sick will manage to stay alive for another month till the grow is finished.

Hey, I wouldn't worry to much but It could be N deficiency as for the upper leaf tips yellowing, mine did this and then got no worse since so no worries there. The only other thing I can think of is do you get any of your water on the lower leaves?
He hit the nail right on the head. Your plants look sexy and I'm sub'd.

Anyhow, I wont worry as long as the yellowing doesn't spread to bud leaves.
ruh, thanks for subbing

Although both plants had same treatment, the second one is much healthier and bushier than the fist one. These are the pics of their main colas:

Hey Symona, what's up? Did you move your thread? I'm curious how they came out. I'm almost at chop with the same strain also cooked under HPS and I'm blow away by the results. The pic's you do have here look impressive, got more? Later
