  2. What's your watering schedule like? Plant doesn't look like it has any deficiencies and like you mentioned, curling leaves are solid sign of over watering.

  3. I usally water when the pots pretty dry I can go for a good 5 days until the soils gets dry enough. I been keeping humidity and temps in check idk?
  4. Maybe wait longer until its really dry then water again?
  5. Looks like n tox to me. either lay off the nutes or change it to a different NPK ratio.
    Many growers, including myself, have grown start to finish using Maxibloom. That's an NPK ratio of 5-14-15, quite low on N.
    But younger plants can rapidly snap out of the N-tox once they get a bit bigger.

  6. Ya but the thing is I aint using nutes yet which is the weird part? Maybe Im watering to much when I do water and the plants sucking up to much nitrogen in the soil? The soil should be almost out of nitogen its been a month...weird plants I keep getting lol
  7. Seems as though if one keeps getting "weird plants", one might stop blaming the plants and perhaps look for other potential growth bottlenecks.

  8. yes a little over fed the true signs will show over the coming week
    for now Id avoid feeding for 10 plus days let the food be used up

    then late a flush with air temp water 3x the pot volume
    do it days end so it drips out over night to resume in the morning

    good luck

  9. I just flushed it the soil was fairly dry and no I havent used any nutes on this plant yet its been in same Fox Farm soil for about a month now.
  10. for fox farm I always advise to add 30% perlite add more perlite if you intend to add your own nutes later

    FFOF is hot stuff

  11. Ya..I guess so huh? My Northern Lights grew pretty good in it guess my blueberrys dont like it as much. Im not sure if I should do a flush with distilled or leave it be I gave it some tap water yesyerday that I've always used for my grows. I watered until I had some runoff. Or shoulld I run it out? The soils a month old I dont think theres much nutes left in it.
