Week 4
Leaves. Curl down
HighTV answered grow question 3 years ago
Hey there Villa1! At the top left of your 2nd and 3rd images of week 5 I notice the leaves curling down as you described. If this is the area you are questioning this the beginning of a Nitrogen toxicity! If you look at the lower leaves you can see some Chlorosis(yelIowing) where the plant pulled nitrogen from the lower leaves to feed the new growth at the top. I would keep an close eye on the situation and it if gets worse you will want to flush the plant with pure PHed water for a few days before reapplying the same nutrients with less nitrogen in them. I hope this helps resolve your question @Villa, best of luck with grow. If you have any more questions feel free to ask :facepunch:

without more info it's hard to tell but i wouldn t be surprised if they're drooping from the light schedule being 24/7 or the heat, you want to be between 16 and 16°C max. hope this helps ! :rocket:

Hello @villa1 looks like nitrogen toxicity. "Nitrogen toxicity, on the other hand, is caused by feeding too much nitrogen to your plants and is often referred to as "The Claw." This is because one of the symptoms is the ends of your leaves will curl or claw downwards. They will also turn dark green, which is another sign of N toxicity. To fix this issue, just lighten up on the amount of nitrogen mixed into the nutrient feedings."

well.. ideally you wanna stick your finger about 1 inch into the soil and check if its dry if it is a bit moisty dont water, generaly over watering and under watering look nearly the same, if your plant looks like that and you watered it just yesterday or before yesterday and still looks the same, you are over watering, the roots need air, so what ends up happening when you over water is your plant is drowning and also stunts the grow, it often happends because of poor drainage or not enough perlite or medium that dries quick enough like coco but even for that i recommend 30%perlite happy growing ! hope i helped:grin:

Hi @Villa1! What makes you think so? Please give us more information & pictures, the more details you provide the better accurate answers you will get! From the only picture you did upload, I can see a really dark medium, which makes me think you're overwatering this baby. Are you applying a wet/dry cycle, do you let the medium dry a bit between each waterings? Also, that's not related but your plant is stretching a lot, you may consider decreasing your lamp-to-plant distance. Hope this will help, I'll be waiting for your details & pics, happy growing :facepunch:

Hi, how much water did she get. that you say you are not overwatering=?. Ut at first the space between the NOdes Your girl has a lack of light. the light is not strong enough, to far awy from her
Anything else is guessing because we have a lack of informations. like temp , ph/ec. hours of light, humidity etc.... pl fill in tht someon can help you.
I my eyes she looks overwatered, a girl in tat size with that grow may need 100 ml a day... happy growing

Good quality light can tend to have them point upwards when theyre happy, i see you comment about the stretching and perhaps your light is too high up. But sagging leaves can be like you said over watering or muddy soil thats not draining well. The opposite can also be true, chronic under watering can cause droopy leaves discoloration and wide variety of problems.
So my suggestions are, monitor the watering, up the air flow if needed, lower the light to reduce stretching, and if you can check your day/night temps im sure that would help us all help too.
