Seeing the leaf tips clawing a bit. Plant looks healthy, no dark green (too much N). Having full wet / dry cycles. Not adding any nutes so wondering if it’s a sign of a deficiency of some form. Been like this for about a week and no other obvious negative signs. Thanks!

Hey cap, I was scratching my head head too I was like is it overeater ohh though ? No it's not, is it nutes that though? No it's not ... Maybe it is though ? No he's in good shape. You're doing well no nutes no oberwatering that's for sure! What it is though is cold temperatures. No necessarily the environmental temperatures which are on the lower bound of what the plant expects but you're watering solution is real cold for the plant so the roots are getting shocked and think it's colder than it is so they're responding like this . What you want to do is water with water at an optimal 21C and it you'll see the plant recover almost instantly. Hope this helps! :rocket:

Hey captain firstly love the organic/ammendments only soil you've been using this grow, i hope you can reuse the soil next time too, I've heard they usually get even better results the 2nd + times. Anywho being that you did the bone and blood meals cant those be not immediately available and take a few weeks to breakdown? Perhaps it is a small nitrogen toxicity. I thought i had seen a few curled leaves even in week 8 just before the flower switch. The only other things i could think of were watering practices..possible wind irritation if you've got strong air flow in the room, or a light stress from the 24 hour schedule in veg (i only thought this because of the week 8 curl, but I'd think it would fix up after the change to 12/12).
I know thats not a very straight answer but maybe between several of us you'll work through the problem. I'm glad the overall health looks good and perhaps she just needs time as long as no more gets affected.
Happy flowering. :v:

Hi, i was reading your Diary and stombeling on a few Numbers. First was " giving 2,5 gal at the beginning of the week" I my Opinion that is an overwatering. Its a 7 Gallon Pot and then you add 2,5 gallon water... that is way to much water for such a small plant. And ive been reading you PPMs after watering . The runoff of your plants is very high. How much ppm has your water=? is it a " hard" water? or how can we explain the high PPM. My solution:1. Check the ppm of your water if it is " high" ok.let me know 2. Reduce your water to half a gallon for 5-7 days. Iam quite sure your plants will stop drooping
