Dying plant?
    #246727 - 07/07/09 03:40 PM (7 years, 5 months ago)

Okay this is a tough one.  No clue what has happened to the plants.  My PH was way out of wack so I got it to about 5.5-6.  This is what I usually go for and it works fine.  Anyone know what could cause this.  This happened so quick I have no clue what to try now.  Someone said i may be watering too much.  I am watering 15 minutes every 45 minutes.  Lights are on from 6:30am - 12am (midnight).  Maybe too much light?  The plants were doing great then boom this happened.....

i don't think you can give to much light. Over watering is a strong possibility. Are you also misting the leaves? I see a leaf far right bottom that looks shiney or wet. What are you feeding and when?

honestly if you were overwatering them, they would be fuller but just drooppy heavy water-ladened leaves.

How close are they to the light and what type of light is it?

Also, as SpaceMonkey said, what are you feeding it and how much of the substances are you using.

Many many variables to check

Pending the info on what growing method you're using(looks like hydro in hydroton), it sounds like you are watering too much, but I'd expect droopy leaves from that, and that "eagle claw" look is generally a sign of pH issues.
Is this a new strain for you?
My best guess based on the dying tips of the leaves, the lime green color, and the claw is that you have a nitrogen lockout due to low pH.
Best uptake of N in hydro grows is around 5.8, and make sure you've calibrated your pH tester.

Well I added more nutrients.  Getting to PH here in a few minutes. 

I have 8 gal of water in the system. 

Nutrients:
Botanicare Liquid Karma
Botanicare PureBlend Pro Gro
MagiCal (magnesium calcium and Iron)

It seems that I am in the vegetation stage.  When I added more nutrients the top leaves looks like a healthy green.  No luck on the other leaves yet.  Going to give it another day.

I called botanicare and the rep said i may need to water more. 
I have 15 minutes on and 30 minutes off of water. 

PH seems to be okay too!

Anyone else have suggestions?

you never actually said what was happening to your plants? if a ph spike is all then balance the ph out, test your ppm that could be the reason it spiked, possibly because maybe you forgot to "top off" your resivoir....

and a little more info would be nice (pictures speak a thousand words)
is this your first hydro grow?

yeah my first hydro.  had a pic but it is missing.  I believe i figured it out.  I was not putting the correct amount of nutrients in the water.  I was way below.  Don't know what I was thinking when I put the nutrients in.  Top leaves looking greener!!!!!!!  will post tomorrow with results

yes thats your ppm/ec levels....that tells you how diluted or concentrated the nutrients are.....nutrient solutions used to grow cannabis are usually in between 500-2000ppm, but in general try to keep it between 800-1200pmm......its always better to have it too low than to high, so dont OD your plants, you can always add more later......if its too high add more water if its too low add more nutrients.....

heh heh...
pH was a red herring I guess.  Still, that claw...
Shows how much us soil growers know about hydro. :rolleyes:
