This plant was put in a Rapid Rooter cube and on day 37 started to flower. On day 34 it had one yellow leaf on the bottom suggesting nitrogen deficiency. Do I need to worry about upping my nutes when I only have one bad leaf when flowering starts?

First 2 weeks of flowering are very stretchy and plant is taking lots of N to get bigger ,stronger to hold as many bud sites as it can.
Yellowing on bottom is fine dont use much N now as its now flowering and no more growing.use low N and rich PK.

Don't worry about it my brother. If its not getting worse don't up the nutrients. Remember, marijuana plant can't be forced feed. What I would do is check the PH. Different nutrients absorb better at different PH levels. And keep it between 6.5 and 7.5 and don't worry about keeping it at an exact level (pinned at 7) let it range from 7.5 to 6.5 without letting it raise or fall from those levels.

Hey there I had a plant do a similar thing...1 yellow leaf. But as for the 1 leaf I wouldn't worry. If more show up then there may be a problem. My yellow leaf appeared, stayed that way, but was followed by good positive growth. Eventually I removed the leaf as I figured it probably wasn't fully doing its job after getting ruined.
Your plant looks great and I love the lst style you've done. I hope she turns out perfect for you.
Happy Earth day! :)

It's normal bro if it's just a few on the bottom but keep an eye out. This strain can handle pretty heavy feeds so I wouldn't be too afraid to bump up ppms but also would pay attention to the ph. Best of luck going forward

Nope, don’t worry about one bad leaf. Your pics look great. I wouldn’t change anything :+1:

I would wait a couple of days to take the decision : it's a common thing to see bottom leaves turning yellow and falling apart, not only because of nitrogen deficiency, but also because those leaves don't get enough energy/light. If you see more leaves turning yellow then yes it's necessary to up your nutrients (especially N) for a while. If none of this happen, you're good to go ! I'll be around, keep up the good work with these beauties !
