What can I do here to help my plant

Just wondering what I can do to help her. I think its nitrogen toxicity from what I’m reading. Below is my support ticket information.

-What strain, Seed bank, or bag seed (photo or auto) Michael Phelps. Photo.
-Age of plant: 7 weeks.
-Method: Soil w/salt, Organic soil, Hydroponics, Aquaponics, KNF: Fox farm, Ocean Forest.
-Vessels: Type and capacity of container (fabric, plastic, etc) 3 gallon fabric grow bag.
-PH and TDS of Water, Solution, runoff (if Applicable) 5.5 - 6 PH. Tap water so far.
-PPM/TDS or EC of nutrient solution if applicable: NA
-Method used to measure PH and TDS: soil meter.
-Indoor or Outdoor if indoor, size of grow space: indoor space and size: 2x3
-Light system List brand and wattage/spectrum:
SPIDER FARMER SF-1000 LED Grow and Spider Farmer SF1000D LED Grow Light with Samsung
LM301B Diodes

-Actual wattage draw of lights: 100watt for both.
-Current Light Schedule 18/6
-Temps; Day, Night 80 -85 day and 75 night.
-Humidity; Day, Night 50 percent day and night.
-Ventilation system; Yes, No, Size. No.

Needs to be between 6.3-6.8. This is probably the cause.


Also, what nutes are you using? At 7 weeks, you should probably be going full strength with your nutrient mixture. FFOF has between 4-6 weeks preloaded nutes.


Need proper ph feed of 6.5 for soil. At seven weeks the plants are most likely getting hungry too. The claw in the pic looks like it was caused by the fan as well. (Windburn)


Are you watering at 5.5-6.0 or is that the run off? Either way that’s out of range for proper nutrient absorption. 6.3-6.8 is a good range and 6.5 the sweet spot. The FFOF will feed with water only only for roughly 5 weeks before nutrients are needed. Run off PPMS will tell you how much nutrients are left in the medium as well as the PH :love_you_gesture:


If you are using this to measure PH be aware these meters are complete junk. You need to invest in a decent PH and TDS meter.

Plant appears to be ready to supplement.


I have not started with nutes. What do you recommend? I have the these guys but haven’t used any yet.

How often should I water at seven weeks and how much water?

Since you have ff,follow there feed schedule at a feed, water feed basis. Follow chart at half strength and with time, just a tad more. Be aware of needed flushes using fox farms.


Soil, u wanna water to 15 to 20% runoff to remove unwanted salts. Basically a soil drench and then dry until pot is light then re water again


May not be the issue, but that fan is pretty close to it. I’d move it up, and let air circulate around in the tent instead of straight on it.


@Mm2021 you’re using tap water? Are you letting the chlorine evaporate out of it?
