Growing it

Hard

Resistance

Weak

I hate giving low stars, but she was a sick plant from the start. Looks like Tobacco Mosaic Virus. No idea what might have caused that. I don't smoke or use any tobacco products and all my plants are using the same soil. But after 8 weeks she was still having issues, growing very slowly and didn't look like there was going to be much change. I'll try RQS Diesel Automatic again in the future and hope for no TMV next time.

Sadly, I cut her down early due to TMV. Hoping for better luck next time.

Grow Questions
DudeGrowsWeed week 3 started grow question 5 years ago
Hello GD friends. My little Diesel Automatic is showing some odd mosaic'esque coloring on the baby leaves. I'm inclined to just let it go for now and see what happens. But if there are any suggestions on helping her out, please let me know! Thanks!

Kill, Fuck, Marry?
She's almost 8 weeks old growing really slow. Still has the same odd coloring on leaves. Tried defoliating the most affected leaves. But no improvement. Should I kill her and cut my losses? Say fuck it and leave her grow? Or marry and try new solutions?

I can't remember the name but there is a disease that happens to tobacco plants that causes the exact same coloring on the leaves, i don't think it has any real damaging effect o the plant but i can't quite remember. I do know that it's pretty rare tho.

lol i know its a bit late but it looks like the problem you had might well have been an iron deficiency! click on this link for a look https://duckduckgo.com/?q=iron+deficiency+symptoms+in+cannabis&iax=images&ia=images

next grow try making more holes all over your pot, so more oxygen will flow thru, and maybe water less and distant from the base of the plant, so the root will develop all over the soil searching for water and when they reach the oxygen spot they will send signal to the base to send more roots to there.
Plants need to be thirst often, and you should make the roots grow so the plant can grow.
