Hi all, have googled around a heap to find answers, but can’t find others that looks quite like how my seedling leaves are looking - bit deformed. Any ideas what this might be?
Kind of looks like nitrogen toxicity, though the leaves aren’t real dark.
They’re outdoors, in large pots. 5 seedlings in total about 2 weeks old - white widow autos from ilgm seeds that are about a year old, but kept in cool, dark, dry place. I have a homemade compost pile and i wanted to see how they’d go in some composted soil with some perlite mixed in (just a little). 3 are in compost / potting mix combo (1/4 mix, 1/3 mix and 2/3 mix) and the other 2 are in just straight potting mix (no perlite).
I gave them some nitro nutes early on, but have stopped that and just giving straight water now. The two in straight potting mix looking more normal, but with some very minor deformities.
Any thoughts greatly appreciated
I am new here so I don’t know alot but I didn’t think your suppose to feed them until they lose those bottom two leaves. I believe the ones they are born with. I don’t know if that would have spun them into a weird growth at first and maybe that is why the leaves are lighter, too much nitrogen? Maybe they will come out of it just fine. Curious as to what the others may say. Good luck!
The last plant I seen here that had mangled looking leaves was a PH issue. They’re definitely to young to be feeding as stated above. What is your water source and what’s the ph of it? I’m sure the experts will be along to help so be patient. Most are in bed at this time.
I’d guess Ph issues, followed by too much nuting early on. If you have the time, the experts like this filled out to help guide them to your problem:
Strain; Type, Bag seed, or NA:
Age from sprout:
Age from flower:
Soil in pots, Hydroponic, or Coco?
How often do I water and how do I determine when to water:
PH of runoff or solution in reservoir?
What is strength of nutrient mix? EC, or TDS.
Indoor or Outdoor:
Light system, size, height from plants:
Temps; Day, Night:
Humidity; Day, Night:
Ventilation system; Yes, No, Size:
AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier:
Co2; Yes, No:
