Daddy Nothing Posted January 8, 2011 Report Share Posted January 8, 2011 (edited) So I have two White Widows entering their third week of flower in 3-gallon pots with Fox Farm Ocean Forest...and I've got to say I've been having insane pH issues! About a week and a half ago I was noticing lockout (which turned out to be my fault, accidentally gave them two waterings with water of too high a pH) so I flushed both plants with h20 adjusted to 6.8, that being the pH that was recommended for me to use for Ocean Forest. For a few days after the flush the plants seemed to be looking better, leaves regaining color, buds began to really develop and begin to pack on some crystals (at two weeks!). But, two days ago I began to notice the symptoms of calcium deficiency, spreading fast. The last two nights in a row at lights out I've given a foliar spray of Cal/Mag, but this did nothing to solve or even slow down the problem. In the past two days the symptoms have overtaken nearly the entire plant, and after a watering (at 6.8) now my run-off is coming out in the low 5's! Hoping to correct this I leached the soil with a few gallons of h20 adjusted to the mid 7's...with no effect on the run-off. Has anyone else had similar problems with Ocean Forest, and what did you do to correct this? It's kind of an emergency, since at the rate these symptoms are spreading, I don't know if my babies will last a week. I also have a Casey Jones also in Ocean Forest at 8 days of flowering and another Casey I was planning to pop in there next week, both plants are vigorous green and healthy but I feel like the chit-storm could open up on them at any time. To lose all these plants would strike me a major blow, so I would also love some advice on preventive measures for those two plants that have yet to experience any problems. I mean, maybe they'll be fine but, I'm rather nervous about it. Ugh. I should have stuck to Pro-Mix....
