So... Been noticing last few days paler leaves overall - quickly. Might be paranoid, but thinking a nitrogen a deficiency - added tsp/gal Flora Micro 5-0-1 & PH water. The pale is subtle, but looking for greener pastures. What's plan B? Sorry for Double Post/Question!

Hi @peggyo! This is a normal thing, since those leaves aren't getting enough light to produce chlorophyll, the yellowing will spread and they should fall within a few days. Don't panic, focus on the leaves that are getting light and doing photosynthesis, those bottom leaves aren't much useful anyway, they're dedicated to the lower popcorn nugs. Next time I would recommend to train your plants (more horizontally) and prune those lower nugs which are taking energy for nothing. Hope this will help, keep us updated and happy growing! :facepunch:

Hello, Your Plants looking good atm. If they got pale or yellow and die, its because of cannibalising herself. I wont give her Nitrogen in that stage of flower, Its "normal" that plants eating themselves. Nitrogen would slow the Flowering down. Give her some Flowering Fertiliser and blackstrapmolasses. The molasses feed the microbacteria in the soil, so the feeding is better avialable for the plant. Happy growing.

I would not give these beautiful plants any nitrogen, at all. The leaves are going to go pale, as the plant begins to use up all its carbohydrates and sugars to boost flower production.
By denying the plant nitrogen, you are boostering flower production and allowing the plant to "eat" itself.
Depending on the flowering period of your strain; you should be flushing during the last two weeks of the flowering period.
Hope this helps.

At that stage the plants are consuming more nutrients to makes flowering happens so your pale green must be due to that so the Micro will brings the green back and add some extra secondaries nutrients ( if we talk about ghe flora series micro ). The plan B is to watch at the progressions of the issues you have talked about to correct it as soon as possible :blush:
