Leaves curling over... What is causing this?
    #767515 - 01/27/15 05:59 PM (1 year, 10 months ago)

Hey guys, as the title says the leaves on my plants are curling over and I don't know what is causing it. I've done a bit of research that leads me to believe it's either too much Nitrogen or too much water. Hoping someone on here knows which one it is and how to correct it. Here are some photos

Okay, sorry about the lack of info in that post.Here's a bit more detail:

Plants are grown from seed, about 11 weeks old, 125cm tall, 15L pots, soil is mostly organic potting soil with equal parts perlite and vermiculite (combined make up about 25% of the soil) I water about every second/third day with a 9L watering can with tap water split between two pots and fertilise with "powerfeed for veggies" NPK 14:1.4:9 once per week, my grow is outdoor so no lights, just the sun, and unlimited space, temperature is different every day and this is my first cannabis grow.

I would guess too much water or your pH is off but Im no expert. Vermiculite will hold a lot of moisture. Do you check your pH before watering/feeding and have you checked the pH of your runoff? Those ladies are definitely unhappy about something. How long have they been that way? Mine will droop a little at the end of the day when they know the lights are going out soon.

youre overwatering like a mothefucker. 9 liters (per plant!?) every couple days? i cant believe those plants would be going through that much water in such a short time. you're drowning them.

Yeah I thought it might be over watering. But the soil always seems really dry after a few days. And it's 9L split between two plants so 4.5L per plant

Lift your pots to feel how heavy they are after a good watering. Then dont water again until they start feeling considerably lighter.

Plastic pots aren't helping, they look pretty small given the size of your plants.  Punch some holes in the sides of them for drainage.  How many holes are in the bottom?  Consider bigger containers, smart pots perhaps...

Lower the moisture in your soil and cut back on the feedings a little for a bit and you'll be fine.
