    Default Too much water or overfed?

    using advanced ph perfect 3 part pure coco. Had fed at 3ml/liter but I thought it was too much and also fed with a lot of run off.. I think the result was over watering and overfed.

    Went from 2ml/liter to 3ml/liter. The pot did lighten up so the last feed was 2.5ml/liter and was probably too much as well. Next one will be 2ml/liter again

    I also thought I had a bug (couple holes in leaves) so I sprayed with some bug be gone away lights out and this was also during the same period I upped the feed. I have a dairy going as well but can't figure out how to link it. I'm colorblind so sometimes the obvious is right in front of me.

    I dont grow in coco so not too familiar with nute ratio's etc but looks like the plant is getting too much nitrogen with the ''clawing'' at the tips of the leaves.

    COCO you feed once or twice every day !!!!
    Your plants are tiny so dont need much food yet
    You should flush the coco ASAP with x3 the water the pot holds, x2 should be plain ph water @ 5.8 . The 3rd should be a weak nutrient solution @0.5ml per liter and ph 5.8 . I feel your plants may have "Lightened up" not due to a deficiency but more a lockouk due to too much of something

    Do you have an EC meter ??

    Once you have flushed you can just raise EC slowly to avoid future issues , I raise mine 0.2 at a time

    You plants dont need anything thing like 3ml untill into flowering after the stretch IMHO

    Lucky you are in coco so its nice and easy to fix issues

    I don't have an EC meter but what you said sounds spot on. I don't have a PH meter either so I flushed them well with .5ml/L nutrients. Will report back in a day or so to let you know how it turned out. I thought the curling was overwatering but I can feed daily? With run off each time?

    This here, pukka info. Advanced nuits are strong, 0.5 of a ml is fine. Keep the ec low. Plant probably has lock out due to over feeding mate.

    would you continue at .5 for awhile.. or just until they bounce back then gradually go up some?

    I would keep it at 0.5 for a few days , Most of my plants respond in 24-48 hours in coco

    Then when they start to lighten up around the tops increase the food , but only by .2 a day , This way its very unlikely you will over feed, If plants look healthy then dont increase

    Really if you are going to stay with coco / hydro i would invest in a ec meter and a ph pen , They are the only tools you need to ID 90% of issues you will ever have with coco , Even using ph perfect isnt perfect

    Thanks. They're looking better but a lot of the lower leaves are still looking sad. Will the whole plant turn around or should I expect to lose the most damaged leaves eventually?
