You really need to fill out a support ticket so we will have the info needed to try and help you. I believe you have a calcium deficiency but not sure.

Are you giving your plants Cal mag? What kind of nutes are you using and how often do you feed?

I suspect you have some type of deficiency most likely calcium and it could be PH related so you need to look at getting a good PH meter down the road.

@StonedCold13 Brother I looked for it but couldn’t find it to give it to him. Where is the support ticket located and can someone please sticky that sucker up top please. My rollout wheel has stone cold welded on it.

Lol good name for the tool🤘
Go to the home page, scroll to bottom and myfriend has it pinned 1st in line

I’ve been using Fox Farm big bloom, average about 1 quart per day per plant. Is this to much? Should I alternate with plain water. My mix ratio is 3 tsp. per gallon. Thanks

I think @JJ520 uses HF. I’ve tagged him for ya, let’s see what happens

I use Happy frog but I use jacks so if it was Fox farms nutrients I would go by their feed schedule and lower it a little I believe @Newt uses Fox farms product he could probably help

Thanks for the tag, @JJ520, sorry about the tardiness of this reply - crazy project at work this week/weekend. Yeah, I’m using FF nutes and soil. This grow I am follow this schedule using everything on it except Flower Kiss and Rhize Up.

I start in FFHF, and when I go into my final planters I use FFOF. I don’t feed anything except Cal/Mag until they’ve been in the final planters for 3 weeks. Then I go straight to full strength. That said I have enough light for them to use full strength. I also supplement with Recharge, Lumina, Tribus and FishSh!T.

I feed, water, feed, repeat. CalMag on non-feed days. And I do the Sledge Hammer flushes on schedule.

Here is how they look on day 34 of flower. I’ll let the results speak for themselves:

Also… This is what I got from Fox Farms (via @MrPeat) regarding exactly how to use Sledge Hammer.

Thank you for contacting FoxFarm, I’m happy to help!

To perform a flush with the Sledgehammer product, you will want to prepare the mixture at a rate of 2 tsp per gallon of water. You will use the Sledgehammer standalone. Pour the solution over the soil and use about twice as much solution to flush as you would if you were normally watering or feeding. For example, if on a normal watering you use a half gallon, for a flush you would use a whole gallon. Once this is done, let the soil dry completely. After that you can pick up with the next feeding as scheduled.

If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

I use only Fox Farm soil and nutrients. Been doing it for a couple years now. Once I stepped in Dirty Dozen, my plants get really frosted now.

Mine are so frosty that all the leaves look like velvet. I tucked some leaves to expose buds earlier, and I had to use isopropyl to get my fingers to stop sticking together. FF gets bashed a bit because there are a lot of things to use. But I’m loving the results that I’m getting.

Check this frost out:


When answering about PH and PPM the rely was “Not sure”
Is it because to don’t have PH Or PPM pens to take the readings or is it you just don’t take them?
If you are going to grow cannabis you need these basic tools. Otherwise you are blind as to what you are feeding them and what is coming out.
It is more than likely calcium deficiency. This has to be supplemented when using fox farm, Big Bloom is a general purpose mild fertilizer. Most FF users at least use the trio. Recommend adding Grow Big and Tiger bloom. Otherwise you will come up short in providing the necessary nutrients during flower.
