EelGrows started grow question 3 years ago
The leaf twisting and contorting i'm seeing in the first set of true leaves; is that due to incorrect PH(my tap water has 7.7 ph)? Also the discoloration on my 4AM #3's second set of true leaves(only one has the discoloration), can anyone tell me what that is? Is it bad?
Week 2
Leaves. Too many

Hi @EelGrows! I see the twisting/curling leaves you're talking about, and I also see you're already having some purple stems. What's your night temp? Are you applying a wet/dry cycle with quick rotations? In this situation I would buffer the pH to the optimal pH range for soil (~6.0-6.5 with most of the feedings at 6.2), try to raise the temperatures a bit (by 2-3 degrees at least), and try to stick to a wet/dry cycle, I.E. one day wet with nutrients, one day dry, one day wet with plain pH'd water, etc... I would also consider improving the airflow, my guess is that you currently don't have a nice & smooth continuous breeze onto your babies, so try to put a small rotating fan slightly blowing onto the canopy. If things don't get better after a few days, come back in here with more details&pics so we can help you out to refine the diagnosis and review your parameters. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

Hello @eelgrows Seems like it might be getting too much nitrogen. Nitrogen causes darker colorations and too much can make leafs curl. Google "Cannabis leaf curling" for examples and more info. Otherwise looks great!:smile:

If your tap is 7.7 get a bottle of ph down with the dropper if u go .5 this will bring your ph to PERFECTO get a spray bottle and spray them every few days and u run that RIZZ its magic just go 1 ml per liter for a week to get them going :+1::+1::+1:And water these things 4 shot glasses a day u underwatering them already:+1::+1:

don't worry bro, looks totally normal so far, just be careful with rhiz, check the incomming PH and see for yourself : it will raise your PH some. This could lead to the problems you talk about down the line, so tapper it off or get use it with other nutes that buffer it back down. :rocket:

Hello ! Nothing to worry about , it's completely normal. Before beeing dark green your leaves starts by beeing light green. You will almost always see the green be lighter to darker from the begening of the leaves to the tips. That's how coloration happens. Take a look at others diaries and you will see the same. I hope it will help you :grin::v::skin-tone-3:
