Poor girl is going down hill

One of my girls is really struggling and I’m at a lost as to what I can do for her, I’m very green :joy: but her not so much, shes slowly turning a yellowish color and getting yellow spots. I gave her a stronger mix with nitrogen and sprayed her with a garden safe fungicide thinking one of those may be the problem but 48 hours later she looks no better off and her growing has slowed as well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated even if its just a guess :sweat_smile:

strain=girl scout cookies extreme
Seed bank= ilgm

  • Method: Soil miracle grow preformance potting soil
  • Vessels: plastic 5 gallon pots
  • PH of Water and run off is between 6.5 and 7
  • PPM/TDS or EC of nutrient solution N/A
  • Indoor
  • Light system
  • Temps; Day and night= 75 to 80F.
  • Humidity; Day amd night 50 to 60%
  • Ventilation system; Yes 4 inch inline tube fan with carbon filter
  • AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier, N/A
  • Co2; no

I would definitely try to lower the ph.

Miracle grow is notorious for PH issues. Mostly for causing spikes.


Personally I won’t use miracle grow at all for my girls, its geared for produce not bud. I do know a guy that gets great results from miracle grow though. I grew, as an experiment, 2 autos in regular dirt with no augmentation done. I checked my water’s ph, it was a 6. I never fertilized them. I put them on my porch outside and let them grow in 1 gallon pots. I’m currently smoking one of them as I type. It still grows in natural conditions (grow light) and still produces, maybe not as much as a "tended plant ". I lost some bud while trying to dry it, mold. I lost the main cola on one. I ended up with a bit over 3oz final dry weight after trim. All that to say fertilizer is not as critical as some say. It’s easy to burn your girls with too much, and miracle grow and those like it, do spike and pit (valley). I also made a “nute junky” , that’s another experiment. At the end of the day, they are weeds.


True that the girl I gave only 2 spoonfuls of 4-4-4 and 2 spoonfuls of bloodmeal is doing great compared to the girls I nuked with nutes


I firmly believe that it’s is the miracle grow causing you problems because it does fair during veg but when flower hits, it acts like poison. For the price, it’s better to get soil without fertilizer or find one that has testimonials from people stating it’s fine for pot.
