Dying leafs during flowering
    #589011 - 09/27/11 11:16 AM (5 years, 2 months ago)

I know its standard for the leafs to die off towards the end of flowering, but I'm only in about week 3 and have lost quite a few leafs. Its a real small plant, so I know its not the canopy blocking light.

Should I feed a small dose of some veg nutes? I usually do that around week 5, but this is week 3 so I'm not so sure whats going on here.

It could be because I'm growing in a higher ratio of coir, and the soil isn't feeding like I'm used to, but I'm not sure what to do about it.

What portion of the plant are the leaves starting to die off from?  Are they just yellowing and falling off??  Getting big splotches??  What exactly are they doing.

If it was mine I would prolly just flush.

Bottom up, and yeah, they're yellowing and falling off.

I haven't fed them much, they've been flushed quite a bit (last time I burned my plants so I've been very conservative with feeding)

Its natural.

Think of the leaves as little solar panel/batteries.

Flowering requires alot of energy and thats why the leaves are there.

They are the build up for the final shebang.

In nature cannabis plants live and die all in one season.

So what point would the plant need to have all its leaves(stored up energy) if it knows it's going to die?

Also, just look at the evidence around you. What is the number one thing you notice during the fall time?

In a perfect situation no leaves at harvest time would be perfect.

I could add alot more but I think I've derailed enough for now.



[edit] Just noticed the comment aobut flushing.
Excessive flushing causes you plant to tap into its energy storage in order to just survive. So be careful.
But I think your fine. Just keep feeding with flowering nutes.

Thanks for the tips.

Like I said, I know its natural, but its only 3-4 weeks in to flowering (of a probably 9 week flowerer) so it just seemed to early for the plant to be in the Autumn of its life.

Gave it some foodz yesterday. I'm sure she'll be fine.

Nono, its all good :] No troubles.

I looked at her again today, and shes showing a bit of heat stress and some Mg deficiency, so I just wasn't feeding enough. That explains the yellowing leafs too. It got warm again here this week, so it got a little hot in there.

Last grow was too much, this grow is too little :lol: Its hard to find that happy medium.

Yellowing from bottom up is classic nitrogen def.  At 3 weeks of flowering that should NOT be happening.


Of course flushing to often is going to deprive the plant of nutrients.  You flush all the nutrients out.  But if you add more nutes on the next watering or even in the last gallon your probably not going to have an issue.  Obviously i'm not telling him to flush constantly....

Yeah, I meant since it had a Mg deficiency, it probably has others too because I was giving her straight water too much. Not that the yellowing was due to the Mg. Ugh now I confused myself :lol:

you are doing a good job of that. I found that post about leaves as batteries to be actually a really interesting analogy
