Ok.. can someone tell me what this is? Am I screwed?

These yellow spots are showing up… is this the beginning of leaf septoria?


Hi! and welcome to the forum!
I don’t think there is a need to panic. They look pretty good. Do you use Cal Mag in your drinks?
More info on your set up will make it easier. :+1: :+1: :+1:

I don’t know but let’s tag a guru like @Covertgrower or @ Caligirl

No I haven’t used any cal Mag or anything. A day ago was the first time I’ve even used any nutrients and it was like a half dose of the general hydroponics 3 basics. Is this a nutrient thing? Or what is it?

  • The strain is green crack, from ilgm here.
  • Method: Growing it in ocean Forrest.
  • Vessels: Small pots, about to be transplanted probably the end of this week.
  • Water is always PH balanced to 6.2-6.5 first time using any nutrients a day ago, just a half dose for a gallon of water. General hydroponics flora series.
  • PPM/TDS or EC of nutrient solution if applicable-no idea on that one.
  • Indoor

How old is the Plant? FFOF should last about 4-5 weeks before needing any nutes. You should be checking PPM every time you water and every runoff.

Yeah that’s what someone else told me too, these guys are about 4-5 weeks old now so i thought it would be ok to give them a tiny first taste of nutrients. But the first spots I found were from a couple days before I watered with nutrients.

Plant look fine to me. Might need a transplant soon.

What type of water are you using?

Hey! It’s funny you say that actually, I started to see roots along the inside of the container they’re in (actually have a question about this too) so I decided it was probably time to transplant into 5 gallon pails… welllllll while transplanting them, I saw a couple green spots in each of the containers…and a few roots were turning green… I know I made the mistake of planting them in semi clear containers in the first place which definitely attributed to it. But, if I trimmed the few roots that were green off while transplanting, will it continue to spread? Do I still have to treat it in some way? Or will it being in containers that allow no light through it be enough to stop the spread if I trimmed it all off? I feel like a complete idiot for my first grow and it seems like I’m making every mistake in the book, but one last question, do these leaves look like some sort of nutrient deficiency? Or am I just being paranoid…

Just regular tap water ph balanced to 6.3-6.5. I just moved into a new house a few months ago and have no idea what the composition of the water around here is… probably something I want to look into pretty soon though.

Hmmmm. uncharted territory for me… let me tag @Covertgrower for you!

It was likely of the symptoms of being foot bound, or ph fluctuations from when it was in the smaller container.
Don’t stress too much on lower leaves, focus on the top, where the growth is. Lower fan leaves are the first to go. As the plant gets taller, lower canopy starts to die off for various reasons, but mostly the lower canopy isn’t receiving as much light. So it’s not longer needed.

So that leads me to my next question… I’m to the point where I think those monster ones on the bottom need to go because I have like 6 branches on each of the plants that are splitting into 2-3 but they are all underneath those single leaf monsters…I topped them already and they have the two nodes on top now, and those are starting to split into two even. too soon to start removing some of the undergrowth to make room for all the new stuff? Also, how do people get their plants so tall??? Mine are staying short but bushy as hell… I want to start training them but there is so much going on I don’t see any good way to start tying branches without removing those huge single leaf branches. !!


@Covertgrower I’m not sure if it tagged you in my last post or not.

You can either dim the light or raise it higher to encourage more vertical growth. You can take those leaves off. Some people say don’t take leaves in veg but I pull off what I want if it’s blocking too much or in the way. If your talking about taking branches off I’d hold on that. Encourage some more vertical stretch with lower light intensity and then you can train. I like to let the branches get 6-8" long before supercropping them outwards.

So kind of a weird question, but can you too a plant too many times? I did the main one after it had 4 nodes, but can I top each of the side branches once they reach 2-3 nodes? What’s excessive?
