A Little Help

  1. Hey,

    Just wanted a few suggestions or ideas on this one, it seems to be doing well but a few of the large upper leaves are starting to curl under at the edge. Any ides what may be causing it? It's about 5-6 weeks old and I'm thinking it must be indica with such big leaves, anyone else have a different opinion? Any feedback would be great, thanks.

  2. Kind of looks like a PH issue. What PH are you watering with?

    You should give us more information on what you're using, include everything.

    Hey, thanks for the reply dude. It's just a small grow, 4 plants and they're in a soil mix with pearlite and some pumice stones. I only use purified water and I fertilized it once so far with an all around type. It's NPK and Ca, Mg and S. I gave it a low dose and also a little bit of wood ash to help with the Ph. Don't have a test kit right now, it's a bit difficult to find one where I am at the moment. I've got 3x24w CFL's and a 150w MH. Also I have some yeast and sugar CO2 bottles along with a humidifier and a fan. They've been on pretty much a 24 hour light cycle but only the cfl's, the MH gets turned on only for 4-5 hours a day. It was going really well til last week when I noticed the leaves starting to curl. You mentioned ph, do you think too hi or low? Any other ideas?
  4. How much and how often are you watering

    once or twice a week depending on the weather and wind. I check the soil an inch or 2 down for moisture and water if necessary. I put them outside from time to time to get some natural sunlight and air and mist them after a hot day or when the MH lamp's been on them for a while, the leaves actually feel dry and a bit like paper at the moment. Think I should introduce a dark period or continue with 24 hrs of light? Also, do you think it's indica or sativa? I heard indica doesn't need as much water, so maybe that's part of the problem.
