Quick bit of help, never had this problem before (pix)
    #658727 - 02/12/13 01:42 PM (3 years, 9 months ago)

These were going well, as you can see from the pic they are pretty healthy, but the tops are drooping a bit and a bit skinny, the ec is 1.36 and the pH 5.1 at the moment.

They have the GHE flora series, distilled water and Advanced Hydroponics big bud powder.

They were doing really well with a load of water, all the way through the light cycle, so I've kept that up

Is the ph too low? HELP!







Also it gets a little cold during the dark cycle, it's between 7-12ÂșC here at the moment, obviously in the light part it's warmer in the tent.

get your ph up a bit. and those temps are a bit low too. you dont want that big of a fluctuation in flowering, especially that low. get yourself a little space heater for the room

if they dont perk up in a couple days maybe a quick flush is in order. the first pic kinda looks like "the claw"(too much n)

Flush them now, and get that pH up to 5.6-5.8.

Can I just supplement the ph or is a full flush necessary? I only changed the water a few days ago...

I would flush, that way if there is a toxicity you can get it taken care of and start fresh.

Thanks, but does that also necessitate replacing all of my nutes?

if your worried about it being to cold at night you can run the lights then.
in the summer i have to run my lights at night just to keep the average temp more stable.

No, just means that your removing the nutrients in the soil in-case there is a build up. You can keep using the same nutrients.

Thanks for the response, but it's a top-feeding hydro setup with hydroton. I do have a 'final phase' liquid to knock the chelated salts off the roots, I could use that?

Just run plain pH balanced water for 24 hours.  Then change the reservoir after that and add mutes at half what you were running.
