Hey all, I am now on day 24 of flowering. I got my temps down a little to stay around 80F and my RH stays around 50%. My plants looks like it may have N deficiency or something else, also on one plant some of the edges of some leaves look brown? Any advice?? Thanks
Hey everyone, sorry it has been a while since I have updated my GJ. My gals are 41 days in flowering, I also transplanted them into bigger pots. I am also thinking it has either cal or mag def. So let me know what you all think.
Those buds look real good I looked at the previous pics and you definitely had a nitrogen deficiency. When they are vegging they need a goodly amount of nitrogen for building the plant. It seems to be more tricky in soil to get the right amount of nutes in the soil without over nuting or getting the PH off and locking out the nutes.
The yellowing-off that you had was the plant using up all of the nitrogen from the leaves to feed the buds, since it couldn't draw anymore from the soil. That happens sometimes when we change from vegging to flowering and change to flowering nutes with no nitrogen. You want to maintain a little nitrogen for the first couple weeks into flower to carry it through to the end.
Some people will actually hold out the nitrogen intentionally in order to allow the plant to use up all of the nutes in the canopy to remove any fert flavor from getting into the smoke. IDK how effective it is, but I don't do that myself.
I used to run just straight water without nutes for the last week or so, but I have recently found that I couldn't tell the difference from that to smoke that had ferts all the way to harvest.
I agree with not being able to tell a difference but I don't find the need to waste the nutrients and just feed with water the last 10 days. If you can't tell a difference then why feed?
I feed hvy during veg as anybody who has seen my plants can tell by how dark green they normally are. When I switch to flower I drop all N except for what is in the Micro in the nutes I use. If I see an early fade in flower I will add a lil bit of the Grow (N) to the feed. But when they cross the finish line I like to see a real good fade....not still green or even dark green. Just a personal taste. Jmo
