  1. Hello,
    Something is terribly wrong with my plants leaves I think!! I have four plants and one of plant's leaves started yellowing at the tips but now it's happening to every single one of my plants and their lower leaves look like they're dying ant the yellowing is spreading!! Can anybody PLEASE tell me what's going on and what I should do to save my plants???? I'm freaking out!! I'm attaching pictures but any advice would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

    Just btw, they're all under 6500K CLF bulbs that are about 3 inches from the top of the plants, the plants are all about 10 inches high, I have a fan on them constantly, the temperature in the room varies from about 70-80 degrees always and I give each plant about a cup and a half of water every 3-5 days and they're all in buckets that are about a foot tall and 10 inches wide at the top!!! AHHH I REALLY hope I'm not doing something wrong!

    Thank you so much in advance for anything you can tell me!!!!!!!!! :(

  2. too muchh fertilizer

    **nute burn

  3. I'm sorry, I'm really new to this.. Could you please explain what nute burn is? Also, I don't use TOOOO much fertilizer, but should I definitely stop using it? Is this coloring a symptom of that? Would just using plain water help my plants get back to normal??

    Sorry. SO many questions but I really appreciate your help!! Thank you SOOO much.
  4. To me it looks like streak or mosaic they are funguses and once they get a plant they will spread. They are impossible to get rid of my advice is to take the infected plants out of the grow room. Next grow make sure the room isn't to humid that may be the cause of it, also wash your hands before you handel the plants and keep your hair and body and clothes clean, also if you have animals keep them away they can carry pests and bacteria
  5. I have to tell you that I'm really new but I looked at pics and they seem to look the same
  6. Do your buckets have drainage holes drilled in the bottom of them?

  7. Yes, they do. Could that have something to do with it?
  8. Stop giving them fertilizer and just give them ph adjusted water. If it slows then you know you were giving them too much nutes.

    Na...good soil has good drainage properties
  10. I have been reading thru here and thought nute burn started from the center of the plant and worked it's way out.

    To me that looks like some deficiency, It's on the tips of the leaf where it get's the least amount of food.

    Things like calcium and chlorine would effect the end of the leafs?

    I would check your water and make sure to bubble off the chlorine for at least 2 days before using that water.

    I am no expert .. yet :rolleyes:

  11. Nute burn aka fertilizer burn aka your killing it with your chemicals. Keep doing that and you can forget your plants.

    Am I wrong in above post?

    I think if it is nute burn, it would be from touching the plants with soil when you were planting them OR if you foiler spray

  13. Nute burn is from to much nutes in your water. It can show up in the tips, in the middle etc. If its just the tips no real need to worry if its spreading through out the whole plant time to flush
