Help. Consistently having discolored leaves. The newest youngest growth appears healthy, but then the older leaves slowly change. Some yellow, veins usually stay green(some almost had a dark blue look), crispy leaves, limp/wilted leaves, bendable smaller stems. Ph is good.

Hello E.GREEN...i also tend to a nutrient lock out…. it could be done by many factors as fluctuation and/or bad pH….
overfeeding with a bad balanced proportion of macro end micro etc etc... mixing organics and mineral shoud be use with care

most of the time is the diagnosis is not well posed, we have a bad reflex : try to balance and most of the time we add problems to problems :wink:

as already said u have basic solutions….flush, enzyms, but in my opinion use specifics massive fungis and bacterias is the best...they will act as bio controler and bio fertilizer, they gonna unlock nutrients and increase roots abilities….

if your soil is already watered or too wet...just create holes over the main roots and all around, put pinch fungi coktail (better with bacterias) and a few solution water drops Inside before closing holes (7/10 cm deep) --- ( i can give you a good recipe in order to accelerate spores fungi production as fast as possible….. feel free to ask me)

on my diay i start my new Week by explaining how fungis are incredible when well used...take a look if you are interested….this evenning i gonna talk about their bio fertilizer roles…and how they act

hope this can help :pray:

I had similar problems before. After adding some Mykorrhiza powder into water the problems stopped and no more leaves got that problem. I used organic only nutrients, my Ph was 6.4 and drain was 5.2 so I also changed my water to pure bottled water as my water at home was too hard, too much calcium in it. That lead to a nutrition lock as my PH went down.

I may be reaching a bit here but it looks like you had nutrient lock out. It may have been caused by an"excess" of either potassium or phosphorus building up in your soil. This blocked out iron,magnesium or both and some smaller micros. Since you flushed all the evil out your still left with the deficiencies. Since we are all guilty of over watering on occasion it could have caused the issue not to mention we tend to try to fix our deficiencies by root feedings. Since your not in full bloom I would personally try to work on the issue by doing a foliage feeding. Use a very fine mist sprayer. Start with a light dose of 1 teaspoon Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) per gallon add a few drops of baby shampoo as a surfactant be sure to get under the leaves a bit. Hit her again in 4 days. Try to do this at lights out so the droplets don't leave brown spots on your leaves. See if she greens back up a bit after a few applications. Also try to increase your cal mag if possible. You can do a foliage feeding using your grow nutes at 1/4 strength if it is an iron deficiency. You can try both. Hope this gets her back on track. Good luck.

I’ll put my 2 pennies in the jar. They are nice big plants, far too big for the pots imo, and because of that they are starving. They are using up their food stores in lower growth to support new growth. They will continue to grow roots through flower, but new root production slows drastically after the 3-4th week. It’s not ideal to transplant now, but the end result should be better. It’s what I’d be doing, but look forward to what others have to say.
