Spent a few hours this morning researching about nutrients and anything else related to marijuana plant problems. Still trying to figure out why my plants are not looking very happy.
From what I understand from https://www.growweedeasy.com/best-coco-nutrients-cannabis I am using the correct products that give all the nutrients the plants should need.
I was originally going off the feeding instructions on the bottles. With the next watering, I will follow the coco coir watering and nutrient schedule found at https://www.growweedeasy.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/coco-coir-flora-series-schedule.pdf
I admit though in all the feedings up to this point, I have been eye balling the portions. Was going on the side of trying to give a little less actually, but with just guesstimating. I wouldn’t be surprised that something is off with the nutrients. I would bet this is at least part of the problem. If not even a large part.
From the next feeding onwards, I will be measuring nutrients accurately. Trying to hone in better on what the problems are by identifying and controlling variables. In this case, my own laziness for not measuring nutrients 100% accurately from the start.
Interesting to note that all of the plants are showing similar issues, but not exactly the same across the board.
Maybe I am not evenly watering and some plants are getting more nutrients, other plants not enough and some just the right amount?
As part of trying to identify what the issues might be, I came across a few pages that I found helpful:
My Analysis So Far
Based on what I am reading on these pages, I think there are multiple issues with my plants. From what I am seeing, the likeliest causes right now are pH fluctuations and nutrient burn. Maybe some imbalance with trace nutrients. Maybe light burn still.
Potentially, the issues could be just about anything still.
pH has been correct for the last 4 waterings, so I don’t think that is an issue any longer. Trace nutrients I looked into, General Hydroponics Flora Grow, Bloom, Micro Combo Fertilizer + General Hydroponics CALiMAGic should have all the nutrients needed.
At the next feeding, I will be sure to provide the correct nutrient amounts, take more care to evenly distribute to all plants and go from there.
