I believe I have a couple burnt tips on some new growth from light burn, top node got loose and was pretty close to the lights for a while. You can see it on Day 26, I've seen some people trim the burnt parts of leaves off, should I do the same or leave it as is?

Week 4
Leaves. Tips - Burnt

hey 868ucl, basically when you cut a piece of a leaf it does give a minor shock to the plant plus if you clip them it may spread to other tips or get worse on the leaves, the best is to leave the leaves be and run their course. Right now they're still yellow so it's a good time to dial in those nutes, looks more like nute burn than light burn to me. So basically i would leave the leaves on so you can assess if it's spreading or if you're in control. Hope this helps ! :rocket:

Hey there i see the bright tips you mention however they do not look alarmingly bad. Some will trim tips if they're truly destroyed and beyond any biological function. Such as crispy to the point of breaking off with finger touch or so badly discolored its awful. I see you mentioned in your week about the budsites and not adding bloom nutes yet...however if you could boost your phosphorus levels i think that would help in the long run. A product similar in npk to the fox farms open sesame might be good as it really ups the budsites when applied at this very early flowering stage. It doesnt have to be that version if you have access to another alternative great. But consider it.
Congratulations on the 1st grow, i have this northern storm too and your canopy is looking great. :v: happy growing.

Hi @868uclgrower! This doesn't look like a light bleach because the leaves aren't curling upward neither than showing spots, they look just fine, so my guess is that you slightly overfed this plant in the last weeks with too much Nitrogen. Try to stick into the perfect pH range for hydro: 5.5~5.8, make sure your meals aren't toxic by measuring your EC each time you feed, stop any Nitrogen intakes right after the stretch has ended, and she should be fine. Hope that makes sense, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

Hello ! From what I can see your tips are not yet burnt but just yellowing. No need to cut anything here. And no need to remove a damaged leaf if it is not at least 50% damaged. You'r yellowing tips is the 1st sign of a nutrient burn , from what I can see you don't check your Ec value which is pretty important in hydro, I don't know what is the manufacturer schedule for your nutrients but your input per litre is high ( maybe it's normal ). As you are in hydro you can low your Ec by just adding ph'd water to your reservoir. I hope it will help you :grin::+1:
