Help? Curling leaves, Slow growth
    #733050 - 05/26/14 11:30 AM (2 years, 6 months ago)

Any idea what's going on? Leaves are sagging a bit.. Some curling sideways. I haven't  done the first feeding yet. But will as soon as I'm sure it won't make this issue worse. I water about every other day.. mist a little everyday.. 24 hour light under a cfl. 2 or 3 weeks old.

Thats a little too young to start feeding imo.

But ime curling leaves tends to be from heat stress.

Also fill this out.

Looks like one of two things. Either the soil is to hot. Sometimes happens with Fox Farm Ocean Forest (I personally haven't seen this and have started seeds in it but many others have had problems starting seeds in it). The other thing you just got unlucky and got a mutant plant. This is very common with True Blueberry and some of DJ Shorts other strains. To me it looks mutant.

Youre ph is slightly off and watering a plant that size every other day in the medium youre using is too often.

I agree, I know I'm pushing my luck with tap water and using MG. Since I am new to this I decided to use tap water as a baseline, and my theory was that since the verdict on MG is that it usually has too much nutrients... mixing a high percentage of perlite might "dilute" the nutrients as well as drain the excess water away.

I just left for about 4 hours and when I came back the normal growth rate seemed to return (about 1/4 inch larger leaves) But also noticed a WTF... the way the leaves are growing is very erratic is this a trait of "mutants"?


I backed off the light a bit.. and I plan on watering a bit less.
