Growing nicely, I hope..? But I've noticed the leaves started twisting, this is especially visible in the day 18 photos. I've tried doing some research but Google's not been the most helpful. My best guess would be pH issues, as I'm using strips which are not reliable. I have ordered an electronic pH meter but unfortunately I won't get it until 2 weeks later.

Day 21 update: leaves are looking much better after advice from a grower here! The fans are now on a timer turning on and off regularly which has helped the leaves straighten a bit and the new growth seems to be healthy. I turned off at the beginning of this week the LED bar light as I was worried it was getting too hot and too bright for it. Not sure if it was a good idea but the plant seems not to mind it. It also started getting smelly this week which is very exciting! Most likely going to start LST next week.

Grow Questions
IceQueen420 week 3 started grow question 3 years ago
Could anyone possibly take a look at my day 18 pictures? The biggest leaves seem to be twisting weirdly and while I'm guessing it might be a pH issue, I would like someone's opinion who has more experience than me.

Or is it normal and I'm simply being too cautious?

Thanks!

Leaves. Twisted
Experimentgreen answered grow question 3 years ago
Hey there, so ph can definitely cause so extremely various results, are you checking the outgoing water as well as incoming? If your ph is fairly reasonable even with the strips, my next thought would be possibly wind and air movement, because that'll cause some twisting and unusual shapes even if the air flow isn't extremely strong, but waving the plant around.
Your leaves don't look very disrupted to me, so I'd just keep a close eye and watch for any changes. If it gets worse then examine some options and maybe look into watering practices too, over and under.
Happy growing. Congrats on the 1st grow.:v:

Hey there so I know you mention using google, but in case you haven't come across it already, i know a lot of people on here have found a good amount of help from the growweedeasy.com site. Lots of photos, examples and tips.

@IceQueen420, lol yea that site has a lot on it....might take us a whole week of non stop clicking to get to the end of it.:smile:
That's great that your runoff is coming out so good, I've got a couple plants who keep putting out a point or so higher than i input...but it'll work out over time.

P.S if you happen to be a science nerd..organic enthusiast or just like listening to things, I've been loving this podcast on kisorganics.com called the Cannabis Cultivation and Science Podcast. :blush:

@Experimentgreen, I took a look and well... Let's say I'll spend my evening reading through that website. :-)

P.s.: not sure how to reply to your other message... I have checked the run off pH and it seemed to be about the same as the pH when that went in... The fan might be the culprit I think - it was running 24/7 and not oscillating... Put that on a timer now so hopefully it should sort things out. Thanks very much!

I think it needs more light I had same issue I put it outside direct sunlight popped those wrinkles out , I’d said adjust lights until they look normal lol

@Kingjacobs97, Thanks for the quick reply! I did turn off the LED strip a few days ago so that makes sense. Will turn them back on and see how it goes. :)
