1st run with coco hempy buckets, nute problems or ph issue, (PICS)
    #581965 - 08/29/11 08:15 PM (5 years, 3 months ago)

Hi Everyone,

One my first run of "Coco Hempy Buckets" and starting to have a few problems. For a while everything was going great and now i am noticing some yellowing of new growth. On some plants there is slight curling. The leaves seem to be drying out and there are random spots that look almost like nute burn, but I dont know if thats it or not.

I am using tap water that is about 8.2 ph and about 250 ppm. I didnt know the ppms where this high until last night and i got a digital reader. But have been using ph down, unfortunately i dont think i was taking it low enough (was only using ph dropper kit). Now that i have my meter I am taking ph to 6.1 and with nutes i am at about 1000 ppms i think. Temps run between 70-80 and humidity is usually 50%, sometimes gets up to 60.

For nutes I'm using all technaflora in the following dosages:
Boost 1/2 strength
Grow full strenth
B1 ThriveAlive full strength
Magikal 1/2 strength
sugar daddy 1/2 strength

I really dont have a lot of experience, this will be my 2nd time flowering so any help would be greatly appreciated
Here are some pictures of plants:

Thanks for the kind words Lamp.  The one with the broad leaves is a grape ape and the other is a burmese kush.  I think you are right about the kind of nutes.  I really dont think technaflora is a good choice for hempy buckets with coco as a medium.  I dunno why, but i think they are way too strong. 

I think I am gonna flush it tomorrow and then give a lite feed of H&G A+B and cross my fingers.

I would say some pH issues for sure.  I say you need a fresh start.  I would flush and then make sure you are keeping your pH in the correct zone when feeding or just giving water.

I would flush with pH adjusted water and then on it's next watering give it a normal strength feeding at the correct pH.
I've never used your nute line, so all I can say is, you should know your nutes.  Feed it what your recommend normal doses are.

You need to change your pH, buy some pH down or there are other natural alternative like lactic acid to lower your pH.

Get your water and nutrient mix around 6 or 7 pH

Should then be all good!

It looks like a PH imbalance to me too. Also I wouldnt be running my nutes at 1000ppm too high IMO. you wouldnt need to but seems theres nutrient blocks from the PH level.
