Help! Droopy lower leaves tonight


Need some advice - can’t find the support ticket :frowning:
WWAF from seed 1/15 growing in FFHF

Flowering maybe 21 days

Lower leaves are drooping tonight, first this has happened and my first grow

Stems also droopy - she almost looks cold but temps fine

Flushed with 1/2 gallon of Distilled spring water pH 6.5 run off also 6.5

Not sure what happened but i fed Sensi Nirvana yesterday 5pm, 1/2 strength. This is thier third feeding of this and up to now have given 1/4 strength. That’s the only change. My other WWAF had 1/4 strength and she is fine (so maybe that’s my answer?)

Some pics and thank you for your advice :hibiscus:

How often are you watering?

@Countryboyjvd1971 every 2-3 days at night but just switched to days because my tent was fogging up to 80%!humidity for 2-3 hrs before the dark phase (18/6).

I try to water when the containers (cloth) start to feel light and the upper soil is dry to about an inch down. I thought I’d given them enough of a drying time before switching to am water, but a I may have stressed her?

Thanks for your help, I will get to that ticket later when I have more time.

You should never water at nighy, best time to water is a couole hours after the lights come on.


It doesn’t look like you’re getting enough water if you’re watering every two or three days and it’s that big definitely fill out a support ticket and we can help you a lot easier

Actually looking Perkier this morning, lower leaves starting to yellow, look spent, middle and upper canopy full and strong, some burn on tips

Feeding has been every other watering - veg phase was sense a & b 1/4 strength. During pre flower 2 1/2 strength feedings of sensi cal-mag one week apart, during flower every other feeding 1/4 strength sensi nirvana, day before wilt gave 1/2 strength sensi nirvana

Thanks so much — I really appreciate it @bob31 the chart you posted is awesome! Both of my plants do have slightly purple petrioles — phosphorus deficiency?

how many days from seed is your plant @Sl1 I think you might be feeding too often. Do you have a tds meter to check your ppm? That would help us determine if you are over or under feeding.

something like this

I only have a posting with the ph and tds meters but the tds meter is all i’m refering too in this post.

And you’re welcome, but I just pasted that chart in there from the forum!

~56 days from seed

I don’t have a meter, just trying to be conservative and using 1/4 strength. Pots felt lighter already this am even after last nights flush – she is really branching and taking over the tent, sideways stretching since last night. These plants are amazing! I’ve gotten them this far don’t want to screw up, I counted 63 flowers on her this morning, so many also underneath and new tiny ones too. Wow. Having no experience with this, I am not very confident so I’m trying to observe them carefully and understand their stages. Next time, serious lady scaping. These girls are wild and bushy :slight_smile:

Almost every time someone here has plant issues it usually revolves around not having a ph meter and / or a tds meter.

Sort of like driving a car with your eyes closed in the pitch black with your headlights turned off. One way or another it’s gonna hurt! LOL Good Luck!

Also, mentioned above, but pH of source water is 6.5, run off is clear and also 6.5. I haven’t tested the pH of my nutrient mix, should I do that? Is it a good sign that it’s not changing pH? Sorry for the simpleton questions!

yes, you need to adjust the ph of your water after you add the nutrients. If you are putting in 6.5 and getting 6.5 runoff, that is a good sign

truth is if you adjust to 6.5 then add nutrients, your ph is probably a lot lower than 6.5 going in…however 6.5 out is perfect so thats working out well!

Sorry one last question - I have to bolt for a few hours and don’t want to forget to ask — should I carefully remove her from the cloth pot and check to see if she is root bound? It’s a 5 gallon pot. It’s cloth, t bought they were supposed to prevent that by shearing the roots?

Thanks again!

nope defin dont do that. The roots grow into the cloth and if you try to remove her your gonna damage roots.

5 gallon pot, she’s fine it’s not a root bound issue. watering around the outside edges of the pot ensures that the roots reach out for the water…

Also when you get back measure her for height and width. I’m interested to hear how big she is.

2 pics - pH in and pH out

. I don’t think there was much difference,a little less volume on the out vial but same amount of indicator drops o thinking just concentrated color?

yep 6.5 both looks good


She is 19" tall as of last night I’d estimate nearly as wide.

My little WWAF is only 12" but densely bushy and heavier in flower. No drooping on her. Slightly purple petioles on her as well,noted that in my journalabout 3 weeks ago and that’s when I fed cal

awesome, You know you seemed to be handling those vial pretty nimbly!

a background in chemistry can’t hurt!

the runoff is a little darker because it has a little soil runoff in it.

And it is my pleasure to assist you. I was the guy in the back of the class in high school science class that was sound asleep! hahahaha

seriously though, I never nodded off in math, science or history… english…omg
