leaves seem quite dry, have been watering every 36 hours, gonna increase to 24 hours and have not used nutes today. run off PH is normally around 6.5 - 6.8.

I don’t know about watering practices in coco. However looks like nitrogen toxicity to me, the dark green kinda shrivel look to the leaves. If I’m remembering correctly my leaves had that dry feel to them when I overfed early on and had similar looking leaves… Let me tag a coco guy for you see what he thinks.


Lights have just comeback on and they are looking a bit better so looks like maybe not enough water and too many nutes.

Your runoff ph is a little high, i would water at 5.8 and are you running perlite in your coco? If so you might have to water up to twice a day depending on how much perlite you have in there, my first coco grow was about 30% perlite and I was watering twice a day. I’m running pure coco with no perlite and I water once a day. You definitely don’t want your coco to get dry. I think its showing a little nute burn with the burn tips and dark color, but i think that will al improve with correct watering and ph runoff, pay close attention to the new growth for the improvements as the burt tips will stay that way.

Thanks for reply
I am using straight coco. will adjust ph as you suggest. Would you suggest going back on nutes straight away or give them a break.

Do you know about what your ppms are going in?

No, i dont have a ppm meter, will pick one up today. they are looking a lot healthier today. Was def under watering. Will go back onto low strength nutes.
