CommanderCannabis started grow question 3 years ago
If just one fan leaf is showing discoloration but all the other leaves are fine should I cut it off or let it continue?

I think you know what to do whith the leaf. But MAAn what a nice Growchamber, you may tell us something about those, would be interersting for us. Please be so kind and give a detailed description of the content of your Hydroponics growchamber. I am totally impressed. and some things you can only see on Growdiaries. Iam interested in Hydroponics but i dont dare to start. well however happy growing

Hello @CommanderCannabis ! A slight discoloration is not a problem. A leaf even if is destroyed at 60%-70% it operates efficiently. By saying efficiently i mean that it produces via photosynthesis more energy than it consumes ( if it takes the right amount of light ). Plus its an indicator for future problems, especially if its in the bottom. Happy growing ! :facepunch:

Yeah i would leave it on there, as stick said it will indicate what deficiency it is in the coming week. Also leaves are where the plant holds it nutrients, so that yellowing leaf is the plant pulling the nutes out of it because it's not getting enough from the feed, check your PH buddy :) hope this helps!

Hi @CommanderCannabis! At this stage, I would leave the leaf onto the plant and see how it evolves, this leaf might give you some clues about what's going on. Also, you don't have a bush yet, and defoliation is not really needed now. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

I’d cut it off if it was me. Good luck :+1:

I would let it continue a bit to try and prevent others from getting worse that just keep an eye out for yellowing on new growth or spread, just in case it's something you need to take care of. Pretty normal having one turn at this stage. :muscle: good luck man !
