NIagaraFalls420 started grow question 3 years ago
Any idea on what nutrient deficiency I'm having? plants are slowing starting to yellow at the tips of the older leaves as well as small yellowish/brownish spots. I think its either potassium or nitrogen. also whats the easiest way to fix? would manure and fertilizer work?

Hi there NiagaraFalls , the burnt tips on the leaves are a sign of nutrient excess and it's called nutrient burn. next time i wouldn't use any nutrients until week 3 or 4 if you can avoid it , as you can see it's not necessary to add more juice with store bought soil that might already be rich. For now water with plain water until the problem stops spreading probably a little over a week. The most affected seedlings will be stunted forever and will grow more slowly than the rest, just a heads up in case you need to make a hard decision. Hope this helps ! :rocket:

Hey friend i have a very similar grow problem thats happened recently. Often it seemed like a magnesium deficiency, or potassium, or ph. But i had changed soils and it was fairly nutrient dense, perhaps you could attempt at watering heavily to try to flush some of the nutrients, but definitely try a week or so of just plain water no extras. When its time to transplant you may want to water the soil a few times before to help the soil get less "hot" before putting the plant in. Good luck with the plants. Happy growing. :v:

Hi there @NlagaraFalls420 I'm afraid you have overfed your plants and the most effected seedlings will be stunted
as a result. Ready made soil usually has more than enough goodness within to nourish your plants until atleast the 4th week of vegetating. so just give them water at around ph 6-6.4 and they will thrive
Hope this is the solution you were wanting mate
