Help with sick plants? yellowing older leaves with a few brown spots on tips, redish petioles, yellow tips on new growth

Discussion in 'Sick Plants and Problems' started by malufizzgig, Feb 10, 2014.

  1. Hello! I have a couple of month-old 303 Seeds Meltdown from seed that seem to be struggling. I'm thinking that they may be deficient. The genetics are (Bubblegum x Blueberry) x (Cannatonic x Afghan/Skunk)
     
    The older leaves are yellowing and drooping, the lower and middle petioles are reddish (progressively greener toward the top of the plant), the tips of the middle growth are clawing down a little bit and on the bigger leaves, the biggest tips are yellow and one has a brown spot. There is a little interveinal chlorosis. 
     
    I recently transplanted them from much smaller pots about a week ago and I alternate watering and feeding every three or four days. Growth has been explosive. They're in big pots of coco and perlite. The last time they  were fed, they were fed a pH 5.8 500ppm solution according to General Hydro's "early growth" recommendations for Flora Duo A+B. The coco I transplanted to was charged with the same solution before transplanting. I'm very careful about ppm's and pH's, and I only use R/O water so I am pretty sure this is a deficiency. 
     
    5ml cali magic (1:0:0)
    5ml liquid karma (0.1:0.1:0.5)
    2.5ml rapid start (1:0.5:1)
    5ml flora duo A (5:0:6)
    2.5ml flora Duo B (1:5:4)
    per gallon.
     
    I'm thinking that I need to switch to their late growth formula and switch to feed-feed-water, since clearly these things are getting big and hungry. The difference is an extra 2.5ml of Flora Duo A per gallon.
