I just forgot why the leave tips burn. too much water or too much fertilization.
Good information never gets lost. You just have to search for it sometimes. Every once in a while, I go thru my drives (I'm up to "H"), and I find things I've forgotten for years.Hick said:hee hee..yea stoney..it is one of my favorite trouble shooting pages. I've had it bookmarked and transfered it from webtv, to pc, to pc. for a few years. I'm not positive, but I think it was originally the product of Mr.highway from OG. Whoever composed it did a damn fine job.
I actually thought that I had posted the link as a sticky here sometime back.

Whats up tallslim. Would you have any pics of your sick plant or plants? I would say the burn is from ferting and not from over watering. Over watering usually results in a droopy plant and not burned leaves. What have you been giving them as far as nutes? what kind of soil? lights? How often do you water?tallslim said:those are great pictures and information but i didn't find the anwser i was looking for. the tips of the leaves are discolored normally associated with overwatering or overferting. i just cant find the correct anwser.
You seem to be looking for absolutes in precisly what it is that made your leaf tips turn brown. Many things can do this. There isn't just one thing.tallslim said:those are great pictures and information but i didn't find the anwser i was looking for. the tips of the leaves are discolored normally associated with overwatering or overferting. i just cant find the correct anwser.
The fertilizers you use each two weeks could still be the problem. I've seen plants that were over-fertilized and took a month to recover. One of the very first signs of over fertilization is the browning and "crisping" of the very tips of the leaf. However, as I mentioned before, it could also be other causes like heat stress.tallslim said:thank you guys for trying your best to help me out. temps are around eighty degrees, i only fert ever two weeks so that shouldn't be the problem. i just found that if you water too much then the plant can't distribute all the water, in turn burning the leave tips. i was watering ever two days @700ml, then dropped down to 600, then 500 and now 400. i just left my soil @ canaidian peat moss por mix with perlite, vermuculite and limestone to control the ph. oh by the way i have a electronic ph meter that is very accurate and i did have to calibrate it.
There Tallslim....I gave you some rep. How goes it? Did you start a new grow? me too. nevermind, you just answered my questiontallslim said:and why do i only have two green boxes that are not lit under my avatar while everyone else has four, five, ands even more?
