Strange 'bleaching' pattern w/pics
    #778063 - 05/08/15 01:03 AM (1 year, 6 months ago)

Soil Growers:
1. Are you growing from seed or clones? Seed
2. How old are your plants? ~2 weeks
3. How tall are your plants? ~4-5 inch
4. What size containers are they planted in? Shot glass size
5. What is your soil mix? organic mix with very low but even NPK ratio
6. How often do you water and what type of water do you use and how much you give per watering? Distilled water ~every 2-4 days *when bone dry
7. What is the pH of your water? 7 (i assume, not tested, but is distilled)
8. What kind of fertilizer do you use and what is its NPK ratio? None, yet
9. Do you foliar feed or spray your plants with anything? No
10. What kind of lights do you use and how many watts combined? (HPS, MH, fluorescent, halogen, incandescent "plant lights") One HPS, one Incadescent 250 watt total. They are given natural sunlight during the day
11. How close are your lights to the plants? ~9 inch
12. What size is your grow space in square feet? about 3x4x4
13. What is the temperature and humidity in your grow space? 70-75 F. Unsure of exact humidity but it is kept reasonably high through natural and artificial means.
14. What is the pH of the soil? Untested :frown:
15. Have you noticed any insect activity in your grow space? Occasional ant
16. How much experience do you have growing? Low-Medium

I flushed the plant about 36 hours ago with no change in status. I have 2 other babies that have been treated exactly the same with no noticable problems. That is the part that is really confusing me. It is "afghan regular"(not fem or auto) though the other plants are different strains

I did use a very weak salicyclic acid solution at the beginning (has rooting hormones, helps prevent bacteria, MAY have/help with nutrients) But i used the exact same solution in all 3 plants, and none of the rest have any problems whatsoever (minus some light stretch)

Help a newb out. Will buy PH strips ASAP but I doubt that is the problem because I flushed, used no fertilizer, and other plants are fine.

Thanks for your help.

P.S. those sparkles/specs you see are vermiculite

So, by giving them natural sunlight, does that mean putting them outside?  Looks to me like some bug attack.  The "bleaching" I have seen sometimes as a strain "normal" thing.

When you say "organic mix" soil, that could literally mean anything, your pH is truly unknown right now at your soil level.  Distilled water should be pH 7 which is too high anyway.  You are flying blind...

Also, I don't like the idea of letting any plant ever get "bone dry".  What good did that do?

Not outside just in window sill. Maybe not bone dry but I've always let my plants get dry before watering. That seems to be common knowledge from what I've seen. And yes the pH may be a little high. The soil is just some random organic potting mix that I've never had problems with before and the other plants are in it and doing fine. No bugs visible and nothing is attacking my other babies

The hps might be too close. I have seen buds getting bleached when there a really close to the light. Light bleaching is the correct term pretty sure.

Lights have been changed, PH tested finally (6.8.. will be slowly lowered over the next week) and soil flushed.

Still, the pattern remains, without getting better or worse, or showing any other signs of distress. So confused.

It got better. I never figured it out. Wasnt the lights, pH, or nuts burn/lacking... But at least it resolved after heavy flushing

Ive seen that before...


Same situation, one of 4 all with the same parameters but this was the only one like this.  Thought it was a mite problem but it wasn't.  Tried what I could but nothing worked.  Went all the way through flower as a runt - didn't yield hardly anything.  Everything else was unaffected.  Glad yours cleared up - looks the same as this but I think this one had a genetic issue...


--------------------
Opinions WILL vary!

This is all just an internet fantasy, ruse, delusion, fabrication etc...
