Purple Kush x Silver Haze Clone help!! *PICS*
    #610239 - 02/22/12 09:37 PM (4 years, 9 months ago)

Just got a PK1 clone 3 days ago and it was already showing roots through the bottom of the rock wool. Waited an extra day then transferred the clone to a medium consisting of 4 parts peat moss and 1 part perlite. Have it under 2 26W(100W equivalent) bulbs: 6500K and 5000K (too much light for a clone?). Been giving it plain water with no fertilizer since.

Well, early yesterday it started showing signs of yellowing and today the yellowing has progressed farther down the leaf starting at the tips. So i just picked up some Vigoro all purpose plant food 10-10-10 and fed it a veryyy diluted mixture. Hoping that this helps the clone, i just wanted to hear some thoughts on which nutrient it might be lacking.

Should i add another 26W cfl bulb in there or is that overkill for one clone? lights are suspended about 10in from the top of the girl. temps roughly 73-80 farenheit. well ventilated.

I would recommend not feeding it FULL NPK nutes, but instead a root stimulator  or Super thrive.


And PK is a great strain, I can image the x silver haze being amazing.

Also have you checked the ph of your soil and intake water?
Oh and please follow the guidelines so we can help you better.

This is simple man.  Your in Perlite and Peatmoss.  No real nutrients in there at all.  You're basically doing a soil-less grow.  Which means they are going to need nutrients from the get go.  Sounds like nitrogen deficiency.  I think you did right by feeding a real light solution of that.  Give it a day or two and see how your plant progresses and we'll talk about what it need then.

today the plant doesnt look any better. the yellowing has progressed further. i want to feed it again, same dilution, but wont i be over watering the  clone? i know the roots need to breathe eventually, so dry soil would be good..

but not sure of which is worse, if i leave it without nutrients and it gets worse, or i feed it and dont let the roots breathe?

One more watering with double what you fed it before wont hurt.  Just let it dry out after that.

updates:
the feeding seemed to help the yellowing. the yellowing stopped and she began starting to green in the yellow spots. however, lately the tips of the leaves are starting to look brown, like theyre dying.



what could be causing the tips to start browning (dying?)

also, one of the leaves' tips are starting to warp in shape. ideas?
i havent watered it since the feeding and today i added another 26W 5000K cfl bulb (making a total of 3 cfl bulbs). temps at around 73 farenheit.

Don't cut anything off.  Just leave them be until they're ready to get another watering.  Then water with plain pH balanced water.  Looks like they might have received a bit too much.

UPDATES:

My clone has been in veg for 3 weeks now. Have not fertilzed her since feb. 23. Started watering her with Arrowhead spring water cuz i heard that Arrowhead has a pH balance of 7.0

So now she has been showing black spots starting on the leaves. what could be causing this? currently under 3 26W CFL bulbs. temps run from 75-80 farenheit.
