One of my three plants started from seed is growing deformed leaves. Ordered some Cal-mag and some Zinc but would think the new Happy Frog soil would have plenty of that. Anybody have any guidance or suggestions?


Can you get a closer look at those leaves and welcome

Thanks for the fast reply… does this help?

How often r u watering she looks thirsty

I gave her some nutrients yesterday just to try and do something. Before that was three days ago with nutrients and epson salt. She has been in this container for 7 days, and was watered in VERY well. I have one of those two prong moisture meters which seems to work pretty well. The soil hasn’t really dried out from the initial transplant… and after the feeding last night the soils is pretty wet

Hi Oldschool… Just wanted to give you an update, she is looking a lot better after 3 days. The new fan leaves look ‘almost’ normal. I am still trying to find my way with when to water and not over water. I use one of those 2 prong 3 in 1 things to check soil moisture. When i poke it down as deep as it will go it pegs the needle out at wet. And at about 3" depth it is right on the line between moist and dry. Without any prior experience I am worried about being too wet. I appreciate your help and will reach out when things go south again.

I think this is where you should start.

Looks like pH swing to me, they don’t like touching either or both ends of their limit, see-saw does just that and worse.

@AxisCat they are looking great, I used the same prong tester and didn’t light it, I just stick my finger in the soil and test my self, good luck
