What's happening with my plants?

Can anyone tell me what’s happening to my plant? She’s about 5 weeks old from seed and this leaf growth worries me. I have her in a 15 gallon grow bag with basic soil. I added cottonseed meal, bone meal, a little bit of sulfur to fix the PH, chicken manure, perlite, with some fish and guano fertilizer.


i’ve never heard of fish and poop before…lol where did you find that?

:joy: LOL! Awesome.

Looks like something is eating the leaf. Fish and Poop…what a cool name

Check the underside of the leaves. That looks like critter/ bug damage.

Yep that’s a new one on me too!

I got the fish and poop from Orchard Supply Hardware here in California. There’s nothing on the underside of the leaves that I can see. I was actually trying to find out about the top plant. The leaves look over watered but I only water them twice a week and she’s the only one that’s showing these signs. Out of 6 plants in all the same grow medium and same size bags.

I’m an extreme noob on growing. Could you tell me what the signs of over watering are??? Trying to learn as much as i can.


@latewood can you help?

drooping leaves basically. Same as for underwatering @jim001

I’ve looked at your pics and I have no idea of what is going on for pic 1. Pic 2 looks like bugs are eating your plant.

Any thoughts on the pics in post 1?


in pic 2 the mirror image leaf is plum gone! eating or burning i’mnot sure

Looks like something eatin to me in the second picture, the first picture I’m not sure about. Fill.out a support ticket, I can get one or someone will beat me to it. How many nodes does the plant have?

I agree @bob31 it does appear like there’s something eating the leaves on pic #2 pic 1 looks like a possible ph or issue or nute issue I don’t have. Y glasses with me so I’m having a hard time making out exactly what going on
@Hogmaster any thoughts here or @ktreez420 ?

Yeah they are a bit twisted which is a sign of ph being off but also could be caused by a nute issues
But I’m not will to place a bet on what’s going on since my view is a bit blurry with out my glasses hahahahaha I did blow it up and looks like nute burn starting?

pH issue is my bet ! That or heat issue from lights? Might be a Nitrogen issue, looks like there is plenty of N there, Maybe too much. The Guano can have high nitrogen in it, depending on the source of the guano.


I think something might be nibbling on one of your girls there my friend I’ve only had that issue when it was a bug issue

Yeah I tbink you guys are right it’s probably related to pH ok waiting for the ticket to be filled out!

I’ll join in with a probably a pH issue…weird wrinkling leaves usually point to a pH imbalance causing a lockout or toxicity.


Yeah I’m talking about the second picture on the bottom with the holes in the leaves the top picture is at PH issue it looks like to me


pH fluctuation is my guess, but we’ll see what the support ticket indicates
