    Default Answered: Fussy mother plant.!

    Hope everyones having a good weekend..
    I have a mother plant in coco that i just carnt make happy.
    Her leaves are always curling upwards slightly.
    I hand water every day about 3 ltres in a 12ltre pot.
    I let her dry out before watering and also kept moist.
    Ive tried really humid room then normal rh.
    Ive also tried strong feeds for few days and weak feeds with no difference.
    I have given plain water flushes Every so often.

    Im scratching my head tbh.
    Ive added some pics best i could get.

    What do you goys think.?
    Tia.

    since she is a mother you can't keep happy
    why not take multiple clones from her and simply restart with a fresh clone/mother(s)?

    Leaf curling like this can be down to the ph fluctuating. I’d stick to one ph mate, 5.8-5.9 rather than fluctuating it at different feeds. A mother plants needs are very basic, opening up more elements via the ph shouldn’t be needed.

    See what your run off numbers are saying. There’s a possibility the run off ph is high

    those night temps are a problem too, a plant needs to cool down a little bit on a night.
    they can be ok for a few weeks without a night time temp drop. but eventually you'll start getting all manner of odd behaviour.

    Agree with this. I spent ages looking at the pic wondering what the problem is.

    Seems too low light levels and low humidity .

    When my mothers got too big i took clones and the more clones you take the more they adapt to the current conditions .

    My ble cheese is on like its 12th generation cut . Instead of beijg tall and linky like she was orginially . She adapted to its condition and is short .stout and has muktiple upoj muktiple bud sites ready to explode

    Hay trex hope you cool mate. Yea will take some more cuts and start over, hopefully they start getting used to the conditions.

    Oh lads i did notice that my inlet which had a pair of tights covering the ducting to stop shit getting in was actually blocked with dust so it was preventing incoming air into the room, banghead.!

    So I have a fresh pair of tights over my inlet and I can see the growth in the cuttings already taken off.

    This has got me thinking about Growing with added CO2 as I can literally see the growth by adding a small amount of fresh air in the room.

    Bakin soda with a few drops of vinegar will do the trick for C02
