It looks to me like they are super thirsty for Agua....Also I cant say from experience but I have heard that Superthrive makes some plants act crazy...I have heard that Grow Big is good, but I myself am using GH Flora Nova and Liquid Karma and it is working wonders for my plants. I know the yellowing of the lower leaves could be just natural as the plants are using them as food factories, however I have also been told it can be caused by a Nitrogen defiency....I will let this one go to the real pro's, just thought I would try to help as much as possible...Good Luck w/ ur grow!

Mine are looking like that too, only some of the other leaves are starting to develop tiny yellow specks. Some plants even have a lighter green on the vein running through the middle of some leaves, If i touch the yellow leaves they fall off.... Every time i water them, the ph is usually around 5.5-6.6. Today i checked the soil ph and it read 7.0 ...... I'm now a week into flowering....
Im using GH Flora Nova 7-4-10 Every 3rd Watering.... I was thinking of switching to Koolbloom in a week or so...
Can anyone please help?

Small yellow specks can be mites, take good look at the bottom side of the leaves for any thing wierd, little textured patches or little white bugs with a/two dark spots in the middle, they will be really small. There will be tiny yellow specks on a good portion of the top side of a leaf. Find some pictures of mite damage and compare.
If you are a week into flowering you should be at least half flower and half bloom on the nutes, I switch to bloom over a couple of days with FN and I'll see flowering in 3 to 4 days. I highly suggest you get PPM readings before you water/feed, the stuff is really, really strong/concentrated. The mix they put on the bottle is too high and I have burned plants with it before, the PPM level is much closer and even 100-150 PPM lower then they state will suffice well. Depending on the levels they may be gettin' a bit burned.
I toss a bit of Kool-bloom into the mix with my floranova. You need very little KB if you use both, I've never tried it on it's own and I don't get the impression that it would do that well.

Thanks Biff!! I think the cause of the specks might be nute burn or nute def. , because although I did have mites those weren't the specks on the leaves. The specks were more like a gradual color change in the leaf... also some of my leaves are yellow from the tips and edges.... not too much but enough to get me worried... :/
I feed em every other day, one water, x, one nute, x, one water, x, one nute, etc......... and when I use FloraNova I use 1 tsp per gallon.

Folks, you water when water is needed, not on a schedule. The plants need for water changes with many other variables.

Fill the same kind of pot with the same type of soil you use. Let it remain dry.

Weigh the pot. Now weigh the pot your have your plant in.

Lift both pots.

If the plant pot is near the weight of the non-plant pot that is dry, then you need water.

Don't try to use a schedule. It will kill your plants. Just give them water as they need it.

Your plants are dying of thirst man. Give em a drink and wait a day or two to see if they will recover.

Stop the nutes until the plant recovers a little. They don't use hardly any when they're hurt like that. You don't need nute burn to compound the problems you already have.

Good luck to you man.

superbud that should be a sticky.

rofl

how many times have i stated this to my friend onlt to have him not water or more often than not overwater....


weigh pots not on scales just by feel.

easy as riding a bike......

your problem aszwagg is definately underwetered or overwatered mites dont cause yellow speckles they leave lines like a tiny snail/slug has been on your plant like grayish trails which are fucked up leaves eaten alive.

spider mites are the curse of growing weed...........

look closely on the underside of the leaves. With magnification if possible. You will see them moving around. You will also see black specks, "mite ****" ;) "Safers", will help, but don't expect to erradicate them with it.
There is a good post on mites in the sick plants section.
