Like a virgin. first grow problems

Hey everyone , so this is my very first grow, my babies have only 2 to 2,5 weeks
3 to 4 days ago after watering them, hours after i noticed some yellowing on some leaves points,
ive been around in the forum reading from your experience trying to figure it out , but still no clue

help master growers…

temps from 24C to 19C

humidity from 58% to 75%

water ph from 6 to 5.5

soil ph strangely 7 ( tried to lower it with some lemon drops in a watering ago)

mars hydro TSW 2000
at 35 intensity

thanks guys


If you are growing in soil the input water/and or nute mix should have a ph of 6.4-6.5


What kind of soil?


It isnt a lockout so I wpuldnt try tampering with pH too much. If ur runoff is 7~ then yea a little lower is better but dont go in outside of 6.3-6.8. She’s not that drastic.

The burnt ‘tips’ are a sign she’s eating VERY well. Maybe a tad too much but i prefer to push them to the brink over rather then under. We call it ‘painting her nails’ alot around here.

What medium are u using and have u begun supplementing any nutrients?

Also another good tool for the growers box is a ppm/tds/ec meter. Dont be alarmd. All three are essentially the same. Just different… like metric vs standard diff.


Welcome to the best forum ever!!! @CarameloGrower


biobizz light mix , and perlite
last week the water input was around 4.5 ph to balance the soil, and in the first 2 3 days the soil ph was around 6.5, but as it starts to dry it goes back to 6.8 7

i started to feed them today for the first time, 650ml water for each one with calmag 0.3ml and 2ml of (bio grow **NPK 4,0 - 3,0 - 6,)*from (bioblizz)

and i just checked them and the bigger one looks down,

after de feed

so the ppm\tds\ec is a electricity conductivity?

thanks man people here are amazing


i mean 650ml of water each and calmag 0.3ml and 2ml of (bio grow **NPK 4,0 - 3,0 - 6,)*from (bioblizz) for both

Welcome aboard. She looks a little “hot” with nutes. Nothing major. She probably will grow out of it but keep an eye. You will see most change soon after a water as she grabs solubles first. Also calmag can be used sparingly in soil. Cant remember last time i used it. I just do epsom for mag and ill add silica blast every other water or so if i remember. Just me. Living soil.

im worried that it was to early to add anything than water,
i dont remember seeing her like this,

im cooking a living soil around (70l) for my new batch, kinda (vegetarian )

bio soil
HydroCorn RHP (8-16mm) (Gold Label)
Biochar (biorecycle)
Worm Humus
Dolomita THC
Top Vulcan (Top Crop)
Healthy Harvest (Lurpe)
Perlite (Projar)
and some living worms i added from the farm
i also have chickens , you think theyr manure is a good add to the soil?

what you think should i add something ?

thanks man

Keep in mind less is more. They look good…they are good. No magic here. Not a magic plant. If they look and act healthy they are and letem be. We always want a little more. Chasing it is an endless battle. I just provide great light…good environment and a cannabis friendly soil and letem grow. A leaf or 2 goes ugly i ignore it. A bunch then i look into it. Just me.


Welcome to the forum and growing. I hope you enjoy growing and your buds are fat and frosty!

Do deficiency leaves or painted nails turn green again or just trim them and watch new growth


They do not recover. Can leavem or pullem. I decide depending on damage.



Whats your thoughts?


Ok look at new growth. Yank them yellow leaves. Ph stays in range. Nutes at 1/2-3/4 recommended and give her a week in my thoughts. That leaf got sucked dry. That looks like hungry more than anything to me. Other better eyes will look. I am really leaning towards a “feed me” situation. Very smooth discolor. No spotting or other nasty issues. New growth at bottom looks good. Top looks great.


I would say nitrogen and potassium deficiency :love_you_gesture:


I just gave her her first feeding. Time to wait and see thanks for your input and confirmation


A little update things look much more gooder
Thanks again
