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

  1. I planted these (White Widow x Buddha) a few weeks ago from seeds they were doing awsome till recently they started getting spots on the leaves, also some of the leaves seem to have no moisture in them and they are kind of curling, i have 3 plants only one of them is still ok, the 2 others have this. I haven't given them anything except for water at this point.

    What causes this and how do I fix it? :confused:

    Also if it matters they are currently under a T5 High output fluorescent grow lamp

    thanks a ton in advance!!

  2. Well lets start by what kinda soil are you using? cuz if its miracle grow its a definate no no uhh your temps cant be too high but check for bugs and perhaps its time to add some nutes? and its possiable your light might be too close and its burning the leaves?
     
  3. I've heard people on here say that miracle grow soil is fine to use but to avoid miracle grow fertilizer. Although I am using miracle soil and some of my plants have leaves that looks almost exactly think that. hmm..

    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

    10. Room temps


    looks like soil/ferts
     
  6. I'm never buying miracle grow products again! I'll be lucky if my plants can even manage to flower. it's a strong plant though. MJ. They're fighting for their lives. It's kind of interesting to watch... damn MG though. never again! > P

    contains ferts, stop supplemental feeding, wait till the plant begins to show signs of being hungry
     
  9. any suggestions on what soil to use?

    is it possible to fix this?
     
  10. flush your plant.
    Flush with PH corrected water, till in optimum PH range & in your case so that the ferts are leeched from the soil, 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
