Is too much water a possibility there’s five plants in a plastic tote they all get pretty much the same water but the drainage might collect at the end where that plant is

tbh idk, i think most people who could answer that would ask for more info.
like ph and ppm values, what strain, what medium u use, what nutes, best i could do is probably tag a couple ppl who could possibly be of better help

@Low @LiesGrows
im still learning a lot myself, hopefully one of these two can help better :pray:

Thanks @Hershy420

I’d guess temperature, humidity, or stress of some sort.

Fill this out:

-What strain, Seed bank, or bag seed (photo or auto)
-Age of plant
-Method: Soil w/salt, Organic soil, Hydroponics, Aquaponics, KNF
-Vessels: Type and capacity of container (fabric, plastic, etc)
-PH and TDS of Water, Solution, runoff (if Applicable)
-PPM/TDS or EC of nutrient solution if applicable
-Method used to measure PH and TDS
-Indoor or Outdoor if indoor, size of grow space
-Light system List brand and wattage/spectrum
-Actual wattage draw of lights
-Current Light Schedule
-Temps; Day, Night
-Humidity; Day, Night
-Ventilation system; Yes, No, Size
-AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier,
-Co2; Yes, No

If growing Hydro some additional questions:

-DWC? RDWC? Autopots? Ebb and Flow? Other?
-Distance of liquid below net pot (DWC)
-Temperature of reservoir
-TDS of nutrient solution
-Amount of air to solution

I have a 4x4 tent with a 400 watt VIVOSUN 4000. The temperature is high up to 100° recently humidity is about 40% I speak to them in a soft even tone I don’t threaten violence or use harsh language so the stress level should be very low. They are in Miracle Grove potting soil I know it’s not recommended by some but my resources are limited as far as pH and everything goes I haven’t tested but there’s seven other plants in the same tent getting the same treatment in the same dirt at the same time of day that one looks bad and the one next to it is starting they were planted around the 10th of May I Was preparing to transfer them to 7 gallon fiber pots CO2 is definitely my other concern so I purchased a box of stuff to mix that is supposed to produce CO2 for 10 months so I will see how that works at $20 a box it’s much cheaper than a CO2 system thanks very much for your help my quality of life depends on it

That’s likely it. I personally get stressed when my crop gets 85°+ can’t imagine how they feel. CO2 should not be a focus. That comes into play with commercial applications. Sure, there are things you can do to increase on a home scale but longevity of it’s effectiveness is kind of blah. Sorry,
I’m super lit. But I can say from a yield chasers perspective on a home scale, ignore cO2. It’s temperature, at this point. Please fill out the ticket.

I don’t know im pretty new to growing only 3 grows so far. I believe Sometimes that happens also if there receiving to much light what’s your distance from the canopy

Your girl looks like one of mine and have been wondering why its happening. The curling, tips inward and droopy. As well as the leafs kinda twisting. However, mine is a bag, sativa strain and outdoor grow. Im in an area where summer temps are reaching 105°
Thing that comes to mind is heat stress and over watering. I may have over watered to compensate for the amount of heat. Not sure if this would help any.

I think there’s a good chance I may be over watering to compensate for heat as well. I guess my next investment should be in air conditioner cuz it’s not going to get any cooler in the next couple of months thanks for your help guys I knew the heat was a problem I guess I’ll have to address that with a quickness

I live in Cali on the coast past sf. My babies are in the ground. I figured they’d be fine during this heatwave since they were in the ground and it was only in the 80’s where I live. I water them regularly but my guess is not enough. Any advice is appreciated
