    Those look fine. I wouldnt worry.

    Like said above try to manage your watering and not let it dry out too much or over water. If your soil doesnt drain well over warering can happen quite easily

    Just use plain water until your plants use up what they can from the soil. Then slowly introduce nutrients

    New growth looks fine. Soil was probably a little hot.

    Yeah I will start learning to judge the weight of the pot from now on. Cheers.

    Ok things have taken a turn again over the last week. I am getting red spots on the leaves now and many of the leaves are pale and look bad. I feed with a quarter recommended dose of tomorite about 4 days ago and no improvement on her colour. I am thinking my soil ph is out of whack. But how?

    I am not familiar with Tomorite. Distilled water is intert. EC 0.0 and binds to the PH of the nutes and medium. Did you check the PH of the distilled water with Tomorite added?

    Just curious, but why distilled water? Most tap water is ok for growing. Imho using inert water (distilled or RO) is for experienced growers using all nutes that the plant requires.

    I grow with inert water. I need to add nutes to every watering but different nutes at different times with varying strengths depending on multiple factors. I have 8 nute bottles and it is a pain in the ass to dial it in. Took me years and sometimes things still go wrong.

    Plain distilled water is for flushing only as it has zero minerals causing it to leach the minerals out of the soil much faster than a fortified tap water (or properly mixed recipe)

    Sorry when I say distilled water I mean tap water that has been left out to evaporate the chemicals. Ph of that is 6.66. Also tomorite is tomatoe feed NPK is 4-3-8. I have not checked the ph of that, as I only recieved my PH pen yesterday.

    You are lucky. When I leave out my tap water to evaporate the chlorine the PH jumps to 8.2

    Did you check the PH of your water that has sat out right before using?

    6.6 is a decent ph and soil should be able to buffer that.

    I am at a loss as to what the problem is. I have been reading that ph is not something to be concerned about in soil. But the plant is showing a few different deficiency signs, which keeps leading me to a ph problem when I am studying what it might be online.

    Approximately 8-12 Inches. Ish170 led is the light I am using.

    Also ph tested the Tomorite feed mix and that is also at 6.6.

    Stop using tomorite. If the soil was good to begin with, the plant will not need any food until just as it starts to flower. As to the amount of water to use, water until you get a little run off, so you know the water has gotten right to the bottom of the pot. Then leave it about 2-3 days, until the pot starts to feel light. Then water again.

    Theres no need to over complicate things-they are hardy plants, and often fussing over them will cause more issues.

    Once you start to see preflowers, at about week 5, then start with a 1/2 or 1/4 dose of feed.

    What type of soil did you plant in?

    I did a very minimal grow my first time-garden center soil etc, maybe take a look- https://www.thctalk.com/cannabis-for...ery-minimalist

    I did not just start feeding for the hell of it or to complicate things. The leaves of the plant where showing signs off Nitrogen deficiency according to numerous pictures and posts I had read, so I feed with nutes one time. Then all the other different symptoms started to show that would suggest ph problems. So here I am giving as much info as possible to try diagnose the problem. Its in Terra Canna plus which I am regretting buying If I am honest. I have also grown in regular garden centre compost outdoors and had no trouble whatsoever.

    Im no expert but can’t you simply just give the plant a flush? Or does that only work with coco?


    Legalise it, Don’t criticise it

    That is what I did in the end. I flushed her last night. So just wait and see what the next week brings.

    What led you to believe you had nitrogen deficiency?

    I use the ISH 150 PRO and at seedling stage i keep it 30'' away and let the girls grow into it, I think 8''-12'' maybe a little too near.(I just read though on their site that they say you can run your light closer to the plant,) but I still think 8-12 is a little too close. My first plant I grew with the QB LED got badly burnt because I didnt have the light far away enough.Get someone elses opinion first that knows more than me about these lights but i'd raise your light to at least 18-20.
