Help asap! week 2 flowering, looks like chew marks but no visible pests!
    #661821 - 03/11/13 07:45 PM (3 years, 8 months ago)

hello all,

long story short, these are nirvana seeds "auroral indica" grown in verm/worm castings + a few other additives.
originally from clones we had rooted in a hydro bubbler.

all has been well until today when we looked it appeared the leaves on just one plant had been "chewed".. almost like a caterpillar.

We did a thorough inspection and could find no trace of bugs.
pics included... suggestions or ideas on the cause are Greatly appreciated!

Well what your seeing doesn't look like insect activity.  More of an environmental/nutrient condition.  If you could fill out the questionnaire at the top if the forum that would help us a lot with figuring out what is going on.

So you know know what the pH of your water is but you know the pH of the soil? 




I would say your soil is too hot.  Do you have any fans constantly blowing on it though?

I agree with the above

But a similar incident happened to me, a couple bugs flew in and made it into my tent, chomped on a few leaves and then completely vanished never to be seen again.  I saw them ONCE, my leaves got chewed and that was that.  It looked exactly like that
