Guest Mr_smith

I can't find it, but if you PM Bubblegrower he can get you a link that shows how to upload them properly.

 

Sorry to hear about the girls, but you are in the right place! Welcome :)

I'll take shot in the dark RnC. If you go into flower with red leaf stems, then get yellowing on the lower leaves, and the upper leaves are losing color, the usual suspect is a magnesium defisency. You also could be running low on N, they need a lot of N in the first couple weeks of flower until the stretch slows down and buds start building. With regular fox farm nutes and feeding on schedule it most likely not N though. Obviously without pics I could be very wrong but these defisency problems are common indoor things that happen. A little Epsom salt as a spray and or a drench should help your plants...good luck......shredder

If I were you I would stick to the basic fox farm lines for your first go. IMO the additives like open sesame..cha ching..etc make it too easy to burn your plants..especially early in flower.

 

I would add some cal mag to your nutes as mentioned above start with 5 ml per gallon and move up from there. I would add a lil bit of the Grow Big too on your next watering. If you want to use the additives I would wait until week three or four as half the recommended dose.

 

Keep at it and don't panic. They will be be fine...its amazing the durability a weed has.

I agree the fox is hot we see it all the time on this site

"pH at 6.3 give or take 1 point" Meaning they could be at a 5.3? I had problems when my pH went that low in my soil. I keep it between 6-7.

 

I am under the understanding that you don't water until the soil is dry to a depth of ~2" then you water until it runs out of the bottom. I do this every time and my girls have no problems. The soil gets pretty dry between waterings for me.

 

I have also had problems with under feeding. I am amazed at the amount of nutes these things can take. I use General Hydroponics 3 part and they like it. I use 1 teaspoon/gallon as my measure for the 1-2-3 regimen (also add 1/8 tsp epsom salts) and I generally feed them every time I water. If they start looking too green I will skip one feeding. This is rare though.

That is what I think too Bob. FF ocean forest has a nutrient charge. This charge could sustain a plant in a decent size (5+ gallon) pot for two months, or longer for a light feeder. If you add more go slowly, you can always step it up, you can't take it out, at least not easily. Ocean forest is pretty good on Ph though, and your using FF products, so i doubt ph is a problem, unless the water is way out of whack.

 

The most common mistakes with new or old for that matter are, too much water, too little water, too much nutes, too little nutes. That is just the basics. And over/under nutes look close to the same. Under watering and over watering looks close to the same, lockouts due to ph or nutrient overload, look just like difisencies, so that is where experience comes in. Second most common is the magnesium thing I theorized on earlier, that will commonly hit you early in flower, although it might start in late veg when you notice you leaf stems getting red. The red could be varietal though. It helps to take notes on your plants and grow them through several cycles to see what your plants will tell you. I think it is best to dial each strain in, before jumping all around. Try one strain with heavy nutes, and one light, takes notes and learn. Varietites can do different things under the same condtions, so it's tough to draw conclusions....shredder

hi bubbleberrykush thanks for replying AS A MATTER OF FACT I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE WHO HAS CHIMED IN AND HELPED ... i cant tell you all what it has ment to us... actually most all the pots are green house variety from othet times ans other things all but 5 i think have the built on screw off bottom and the others have trays and there all 7 gallon pots... thanks again

seems like you are trying to do to much off the bat, trim back the affected leafs and make sure your PH before watering is correct.....also those pots that you are using look to be the ACE or ACO hardware $3.99 specials, you have to cut back on watering since the soil in these pots does not dry out as fast.
