Leaves discoloring?
    #212974 - 04/07/09 06:46 PM (8 years, 23 days ago)

Any idea why my leaves look this way?

These are 12 days old.

Same plant.

Im using miracle grow soil....I know I know... but could that be the reason why my leaves are looking the way they do? And how do I correct this problem?

That could absolutely be the problem. Try repotting in some decent soil, I recommend HappyFrog from FoxFarm.

two questions.
Could you have watered them too much and do the cups you have them planted in have adequate drainage.

The cups they are planted in are they white on the outside also? What I am getting at is, are your roots being exposed to light through the cups they are planted in?

To answer your question yes they have adequate drainage I poked holes in the bottom of the cups.

And to answer your other question yes they are semi-see through so possibly light is getting through but I thought that the dirt would take care of any light...

The roots do grow between the dirt and the container. I'm not sure if you have ever re-potted a plant that grew too big for its container. Anyone who has knows that the roots hold the dirt together in the shape of the container.

I don't know if thats the problem with your plants, but, I can tell you with 100% certainty that it is bad for your plants if the roots are exposed to light. The container you grow in should be as close to 100% opaque as possible. If you want great results growing canabis do not expose your roots to light.

What does exposing the roots to light do exactly? Just wondering.

1.) they need a transplant, looks like you didn't give them enough soil

2.) MG soil blows, find a different medium if you can

3.) I'm not exactly sure on the science behind a exposing your roots to light, but, just think about it logically.  In nature these plants never have their roots exposed to the light.  So, at the very least, just grab some duct tape and cover the sides with a layer or two to shield the roots from the light.
