Help. Big plant problem!

Discussion in 'Sick Plants and Problems' started by se7enUP, Aug 10, 2007.

  1. When I left for work this morning these two plants were almost identical . Then 10 hours later, I come home and see this.

    what could have happened?

    One thing I've noticedis that now the stem is all flimsy above a certain point. and bellow that point the stem is still firm and feels healthy.

    Two plants right beside each other and one practically dies? How could a plant become like this in mere hours?? anyone know what's wrong with it??

  2. so did you feed them lately, you or someone has done something

    looks like ferts , strong and acidic

    To rule out PH related issues complete a soil runoff PH test.......
    with PH corrected water (6.5-6.8PH ) pour enough water in the pots so the water runs out the bottom of the pot ...test the PH of this water....
    If the PH reading is out of optimum range 6.5-6.8 PH, you need to flush your plant.
    Flush with PH corrected water, till in optimum PH range, 3 times the volume of the pots rule of thumb but may require much more flushing if the rootball is thick & sour
    EG: 1 gal pot = 3 gal. flush
  3. yes. 1/2 teaspoon per every 2litres of water. and I've fed them three times. it's 20-20-20 RapidGrow.
    I'm doing everything the same as in my last grow with these seeds except for one thing. I used miracle grow soil. I've heard that the MG ferts are plant killers but never anything about the soil.

    Does the second plant look ok? The non droopy one.
  4. its the soil that seems to cause everyone problems with young plants

    flush the hell out of that plant cut off all the affected leaves , it should come back

    you may want to keep a real close eye on the good plant, when the dry out is when the burn really begins

    actually the MG ferts do aswell, however I found this to be the best fert there is

    Vegatative cycle fertilizer
    Miracle-Gro® Water Soluble All Purpose Plant Food (they make several fertilizers be sure its this one)
    Fertilizer Analysis: 24-8-16 with micronutrients
    2 level "Teaspoons" per gallon of water, (reduce this by 50% first time application) use this as your water, feed every other watering till flowering

    Flowering cycle
    I recommend Fertilome, Root Stimulator and plant starter....
    the NPK is perfect: 4-10-6
    2 teaspoons per gallon of water every other watering........ use this as your water ...discontinue use 3-4 weeks prior to harvest...flush last 2 weeks...I also like to add 1 tablespoon of unsulphured molasses to the last gallon of the flush......thats it no more water .....
