First 2 weeks we didn’t Ph water, or fertilize - and everything went great. Then we began ph testing water (always kept between 6-6.7) , fertilizing with “fox farm grow big” (in quarter doses) they are watered as needed, usually every 2-3 days. As soon as we began to do this we noticed a few white tips on upper growth, thinking it was over fertilization we stopped feeding. After about a week we noticed it was getting worse, so then we thought it was some kind of deficiency so we started feeding again (added 3mL of CAL-MAG to water) although we haven’t had time to see if this will help, it is progressing pretty crazy. Just wondering if anyone has seen anything like this?
Looks like you have a good start there. You should try giving your plants a full dose of nutes. I use fox farms and have never given a1/4 dose. You might be starving your plants. I start with 1tbs at about 2 weeks for about 2 weeks then up to 2 tbs per gallon. Fox Farms has what your plant needs but you have to give it to them .
How old are your plants? How long have they been given ff?
Their 6 weeks. I gave the first dose the 3rd - 4th week, then they started getting yellow tips so i stopped becauae it looked like the start of nuterient burn. I just started feeding again this week. Next time I feed I will use the full dose and see if it helps.
I’d go ahead and mix 1tbs to gallon and give it to them. FF you should feed minimum 1 a week. Right now I’m at 2 tbs per gallon every 5 days. I’ll shorten the time between feedings as they get bigger. My plants are about 2 1/2 months old
Here ya go.
My first guess is potassium. But, a support ticket will help diagnose any issues.
It really looks like potassium but they are only week 6 in veg. Support ticket?
He means one of these. @Pangle.p.01
