I’m growing feminized seeds, indoor, 5 gallon smart pots, Biobizz Light-Mix soil 100% organic without any nutes, BlackDogLED lights. 1st week of flower. 5 plants. Two Cinderella 99 Bay & three Bay 11 started from seed. Giving Biobizz nutrients. Nutrient schedule is below in a picture👇🏼
Guys I need help! Don’t know what else to try doing because nothing is helping. One very experienced person told me that they don’t look that bad and I should just leave them be but they get A little worse where more leaves are starting to curl up or tacoing up.
I’m growing indoors in 4’x2.5’ BudBox tent with BlackDogLED PhytoMAX-3 8SP which is the same power output as the older version PhytoMAX-2 600 and still using only 410watts. Light is 29" away from canopy which is ideal distance based on the company’s owner who I spoke to who gave me all the details and I’m following everything precisely that’s why I’m not sure what the hell is going wrong. 5 Gallon smart pots in Biobizz Light-Mix soil with us 100% organic peat moss and Perlite. I’m using their Biobizz nutrients all of them. When I first prepared the soil I think I gave a little too much Dolomite lime where my runoff pH is at 7.0-7.4. I always check EC I’m my runoff and it’s always optimal, I try not to overfeed so I watch my PPM and EC, I actually check both
When I feed I always check pH and make it 6.1-6.3 depending on what stage they’re in. I go up when go to flower and end with 6.3. my PPM is 950-1150, EC 1.8-2.3
I’ve been doing a lot of googling and every single thing they say it could cause curling I’ve tried fixing and it’s not helping. They said it could be the light distance which My lighting distance is perfect. They said it could be heat or cold stress which is not an option because I am between 77° and 84° F and my RH is 55% and I am in first week of flower. The lighting company Black Dog LED recommends the temperature to be 82° to 85° because leaf surface should be at 85° which is their optimal temperature for this light fixture based on the owners statements. Then they said because soil page is a little high I might be getting deficiency on copper zinc phosphorus so I tried lowering my pH and adding all of those and nothing helped. They said it could be calcium and magnesium deficiency because I have purple lines going through The stems and there is a little color discoloration where the leaves get a little light of green and some yellow spots and some brown spots but when I defoliated them a few days ago when I flipped them to flower, I took off all of those ugly leaves. So to supplement calcium and magnesium I have been foiler spraying with calmeg and Yucca extract every night when the lights are off and nothing is helping. I am going to post some pictures below so you can guys take a better look and another picture of the stems with the purple lines going through them. If anyone can please try to identify and give me a real reason or suggestion instead of just making things up, I’d really appreciate everyone’s help on this.
Should I pH feeding water to 4.5% or 5.0% and water them like this a few times or because I added lime to soil it works as a buffer and no matter how many times I water with low pH it will always go back to 7.0-7.4 pH as soon as the water enters the soil and I’ll be wasting my energy with trying to lower soil pH?
Reason I’m asking this question is because I actually did water them twice at 4.5% pH and my runoff came out to 6.8% pH but that did not do anything at all to my curling leaves.
I’m worried that it’ll get worse if I don’t try fixing it. Does anyone think I should just let it be and everything should turn out fine?
I’m just a little paranoid because it’s going to really suck if my harvest is going to be bad or not near the quality it should be or much less and I’ve waisted 4 months on it!
As always everyone’s help is very much appreciated! Have a great the rest of your weekend and stay safe and happy growing!
