    Rough browning leaves- diagnosis please?

    Ok that doesn’t sound like the issue then. I’ve previously looked at it closely with my 10x loupe and seen nothing. It’s progressing nicely, it just looks a little unhealthy in spots. I will be vigilant with water cleanliness going forward.

    Rough browning leaves- diagnosis please?

    Done and done. My biggest fear is some sort of microscopic mite infestation (broad/russet mites, etc) although none of the other plants are doing this.
  3. One of my plants has had rather rough looking leaves since it was a small clone. The leaves were all green, they just didn’t have the normal smooth appearance. It has progressed as normal as is the same size as all the identical clones beside it. The roots look gorgeous. Some of the leaves have become browned and dried up. I am hoping it is over fertilization (I just changed the water today). Please help! Thanks! Pics here: https://www.growery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/833531

    Roots refusing to recover

    Thanks for the replies. I have recloned the ones that were struggling. They are standing tall, hopefully they will root soon.
  5. I have a few clones that got a bit fried about 6 weeks ago before I got the room temp under control. They are in DWC setup and the air temp was in the 90s with water temp in the 80s for a week or two (6 weeks ago). The Hawaiian strains were loving it, but the cheesequake and strawberry ice clones either died or totally stopped progressing. The ones that survived refuse to recover. They are still about 6” tall, all green leaves, lots of small nodes but basically are not growing at all. The roots are sparse, grayish looking, and remain fairly close to the plant/stem (not reaching and sprawling out). About 10 days ago I started treating them with Hydrogaurd (1ml/gal). They have received 2 treatments, but it doesn’t seem to be doing anything. They get fed with basic 3 GH nutrients, nothing else. Clones next to them, which were started 2 weeks later are 2 feet tall. All treated the same, sitting side by side. Can these be saved? I only use the bare minimum with chemicals, so I don’t really don’t know much about what else I could treat them with. And, imho, there are so many additives, etc that promise the world and simply don’t do anything. I wanna try and save them if I can, but I’m tired of waiting for them to come back. The roots haven’t even grown through the baskets yet so I could remove them from the hydroton if they need to be transplanted or whatever. Please help. Thanks!

    GG #4 in 10th week - still no amber trichs

    They are all super frosty - a plethora of very large colas. The trichs just refuse to turn amber. But I hesitate to use that as the sole determining factor being this far along. I will just keep giving em water. The lower fan leaves (those that haven’t already been removed) are still green and not drying out. Most in and above the canopy have yellowed. I just don’t want to short the potency and cut before I should.

    GG #4 in 10th week - still no amber trichs

    The temperature has been 65-75 for the entire grow. Could this account for slower progression?

    GG #4 in 10th week - still no amber trichs

    The clones did come from a reliable source. But I guess I have absolutely no way of knowing for sure. The buds look similar to pics I’ve seen
  9. These GG4s are taking forever! They are now well into their 10th week of flowering, but I keep checking the trichs with my loupe and basically none are amber. Some are definitely cloudy and some still seem to be somewhat clear. The buds look absolutely amazing. Using scrog with dwc. I started flushing them a few weeks ago, anticipating they would be ready, but it seems to be taking forever. The last time I gave them nutrients was on 3/3. Most of the leaves have yellowed, which is totally expected. But the buds haven’t really changed much in the past 2 weeks. I expected to harvest them at least 10 days ago. They still look very strong and healthy and still drink about 1 gal a day. I did clip a few branches about a week ago. I just got em in the jar 2 days ago. Again, it looks amazing and sticky as all hell (not wet, but just full of resin). But the smoke is not really impressing me. It is weak and it doesn’t last long. So, I’m left confused and somewhat disappointed at the moment. I’m not sure what to do. I’m so ready to chop em and they look ready, but it should be smoking WAY better than the first bit I dried did. Please help!

    Topping, pruning ?? - dwc

    Strain is GG #4

    Topping, pruning ?? - dwc

    Got some healthy looking plants (from clones) growing 2 weeks since being transferred into dwc system. I have been trying to educate myself about topping, but I am still kind of confused about what I’m looking at and what to actually cut off. They are definitely large enough to start topping and shaping, but I’m not confident about making use of my scissors. I attached a pic. Please help!

    Ph adjusting and nutrients dwc

    Hopefully my GG #4s will eat it up. My digital humidistat (which are notoriously unreliable) is reading less than 20% - this is my only other concern. The plants don’t seem to care at the moment, but I have read levels should be much higher for vegging.

    Ph adjusting and nutrients dwc

    Got 2 fans on em trying to keep the temp in the low 80s. Using 3 - 600w MHs with an in-line fan. All the air blowing is keeping the humidity way low. Is it worth trying to increase humidity at all?

    Ph adjusting and nutrients dwc

    Yes I am using all three parts at half strength for the first week. Gonna bump them up next week. They are responding well. Thanks for the chart. Is such an extreme regiment absolutely necessary? I didn’t realize how many sub chemicals there are.

    Ph adjusting and nutrients dwc

    Got some nice clones healthily progressing for the last several days in a dwc setup. I have tested the ph every other day and it seems to need adjusting that often. I feel like I am consistently dumping a cap full or more of ph down into my buckets to keep the ph between 5.5-6.5. They seem to creep close to 8 after 2 days. Is this normal? Should I continue to adjust the ph so vigorously? Also, started using 1/2 strength nutrients so far. Ppm around 600. Do I just keep doubling the nutrients each week to go to 900, then 1200, etc? Just not sure how often I should be adding these nutrients. Using general hydro floragro. Thanks all!
