Please help!
Lara's leaves are getting yellow (getting worse everyday), and now also has some brown/black spots that spread too. Check out the pictures!

I tried googling for reasons to this, but can't seem to find the cause of this:

1. Soil PH problem - I checked my run-off water - it was PH 6.2 (the water were PH 6.1) - is this a good way to "measure" PH in soil? Anyway - between 6 and 7 should be fine.

2. Light burn - when it just started yellowing - I moved the light (1000W LED) higher by 15-20cm, but still - yellowing continues fast.

3. Heat/Cold shock - my tent is pretty much 24/7 - 25-26c and 50%RH - steady, without fluctuations.

Please help! I hope this doesn't get worse for Lara :(

Grow Questions
AlphaWinner42 week 13 started grow question 8 months ago
Was this the right time to harvest?- I would say around 20-30% of the trichomes were amber (check close-up photos).
From what I read - it's even a bit too "ripe", and if I wanted an uplifting high - I should harvest when the trichomes are mostly milky-white with only a bit amber

Hi @AlphaWinner42! Pistils can be a clue, if you noticed that new pistils have stopped appearing and old pistils have almost all turned red/brown and curly, but the best way to ensure it's the right time is to look at the trichomes with a magnifier/microscope. Clear/Transparent/Thin trichomes mean it's too soon, Milky/Cloudy/Fat trichomes mean the harvest window is open, Amber trichomes mean the harvest window is ending, and THC is degrading (less THC, more CBD/CBN). As long as most of the trichomes have turned from clear and thin to fat and milky you know the 'harvest window' is open, even if you don't see any amber. Harvesting too soon (too many clear trichs) will result in a uplifting/energetic effect but you will lose some terpenes & oil potential. Waiting longer (too many amber trichs) will result in a heavy stone/couchlocking effect. Hand-held microscopes can be found for a few dollars on the internet or at your local growshop. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

It really depends on what you wanted out of the harvest. If you were looking for more psychoactive effects, maybe a more social high, then yes: it might be a little late, at least on the top-most buds. The mid and lower ones are likely to be less far along. If you were looking for sleeping medicine or something to help manage pain; the more amber trichomes exhibit those qualities, because the THC (psychoactive effects) will have begun to oxidize; leaving you with CBN (great for sleep/pain).

That’s the most wonderful part about growing
your own. You can select the strain that best suits your purposes AND you can choose when to harvest so that it best suit your purposes too.

Hi mate your question is pretty much answered by yourself
Because it is entirely up to the grower how he/she prefers their stone.
You are absolutely correct that the more amber triches the more of a physical type stone
and the opposite (less amber more clouded) results in a head rush type high that may or may not last less than the
body stone feeling of longer matured bud.
Hope this helps and remember it's about what you like not what the majority like :fist:

You're watering with three types of additives right now , these are causing issues with the uptake of calcium and magnesium. With a heavy light schedule like 24/7, you're getting magnesium issues as the plant is going into overdrive and just needs that much magnesium to deal with the lights. If you add magnesium and reduce the light schedule to 18/6 the plant will get worse a bit slower and hopefully the problem will stop spreading in two weeks time.

@FREE_HONGKONG, I switched lights to 18-6 and gave a watering with FLOWER nutes (no more VEG nutes). I now understand I was wayyy late with the FLOWER nutes... Rookies mistake :)
Hopefully will stop spreading and the will get fatter and ripe cola's till harvest time...
