Can anyone help?

Can not figure her out,
Running FFHF in 3 gal fabric pot under 205 true watt lights, temp around 80-85 f with RH around 50% ph water and FF Tiger bloom and cal mag every other water.

Should I flush with a few gallons of ph water and let her dry out? She is an auto and should be finishing soon maybe 2 weeks from looks no?

I would suspect that your TDS (PPM, same thing) is out of whack. The plant looks overfed and experiencing nute burn. I would get a PPM meter and manage nutes to appropriate PPMs.


You don’t need a 24/7 light schedule. You should be 12/12 as you have a girl that is flowered. Plants need a rest period to grow.

Part of the problem looks to be light burn and possibly not enough nutrients being added. The plant will cannibalise the leaves when there isn’t enough nutrients.

I only fed her once.

Just did ppm on run off and it came in at 2400 figured it would not hurt to flush her and she now sits at 1100 with a run off ph of 6.0
Those numbers jive?

2400 is pretty high, but I don’t know that I would flush. Let it go down naturally by just feeding water for a week or two. Begin feeding again when PPM gets below 1,000.


She will be coming down in about 2 weeks i’m guessing

If she’s 3 weeks into flower now and you think she only has another 2 left, that puts her at 5 weeks of flowering. Weeks 4-6 is when they “usually “ build the most weight into the buds.

As for the leaves, I tend to partially agree with Mr. Peat. Giving her a few hours of rest like an 18/6 schedule could help her repair herself. 80-85f isn’t bad temps at all, but lowering the temp to say 78-82f may also help the leaves that have curled upward on your top cola. What distance is your light from the top of the plant?

I was figuring the weeks based on the fact that its an auto. The lights are currently about 20" from the top of the plant. I’m guessing when they say seed to harvest is 70-80 days thats not always true?

Those guides are a general estimate based on near perfect conditions by very experienced growers. Not saying that you’re not experienced that’s just my understanding of the listed days from the seed banks and breeders.

Thanks again, and no worries i’m not!


Yeah. Being an auto, in soil most would say that they start flowering around weeks 4 or 5. I gifted an auto seedling to a friend at 2 weeks old and now we are at week 7 with no signs of flowering outdoors.
