Dying branches, need help!

Good day everyone

 

First time grower here - please be friendly! :) So I have been growing some Lemon AK and apart from the small bug infestation i had at the start, everything was good.  I have been using Calmag throughout at roughly (1.0ml/l).  Canna Vega (0.5ml/l - 2.0ml/l) during veg and Canna Flores (currently at 2.0ml/l) on week 4 into flower.  I have been feeding the same nutrients for both plants until date, but scared to up the nutrients for both when the one plant is booming!! Everything has been running smoothly until the last few days when this happened.  At first i thought this could have been a nitrogen deficiency, but starting to get scared now as the plant looks like its dying branch by branch.  Has anybody got any suggestions as to what this could be?  It started with just the one and now looks like its spreading.   As you can see from the images below, the other plant is looking good, with big dense buds.  It is a little shorter than the one with issues - they have both had the same feed.  large.thumbnail_IMG_2838.jpglarge.thumbnail_IMG_2837.jpglarge.thumbnail_IMG_2836.jpglarge.thumbnail_IMG_2835.jpglarge.thumbnail_IMG_2834.jpglarge.thumbnail_IMG_2833.jpg

 

Thanks in advance for all your help.  :bong:

There is something on the stalk, not sure what this could be?  Its a light brown colour, not furry.  Cant see any mold in the buds neither.  Thanks

Random thought. That blue thing you have used to LST usually has a little thin metal wire running through it. If too tight at bottom of main stalk the plant could easily grow and the wire cut into the plant like ring barking and stop nutrition moving up. Most likely nothing to do with it!

Just checked and it seems to be fine, some slack in the pipe cleaner and no exposed wire or ingrown into stem.  Thanks for the idea though mate

Do you check how heavy the pots are when water?if not do that and  don't water if pots still heavy/wet .if it is rootrot id snip damaged branches let the pot dry out till just before plant wilts (don't let plant wilt)then water half -3/4 of what You have been given her   you can get products to help breakdown old roots and generally help the root system

I'm not 100% this is the problem I'm on a mobile so pics ain't great ...worth waiting till someone else  has a look:yinyang:

 

E2a  the other looks perfectly happy:yes: she's a beaut!

Your problem plant is wilting, either under-watered or not drinking properly.  That is what looks like a nitrogen deficit too, but that may be because she's not drinking, not because you haven't added any N.

Are the plants the same strain, age and size?  Are they getting exactly the same water/feed schedule?

I'd lose the suffering branches and let the plant put all efforts into the remaining healthy colas.

Tbh i was going to say probs hard to over water a large plant like that in that pot so it maybe under as stated above this can cause roots to dry and die off and cause rot,wilt etc...iv had plants dry out before and loose lower branches but went straight crispy..iv had the wilt with root problems but roots problems can be started from lots of things such as too wet or  dry ,temps etc normally wilt comes with high temp in soil or overwater

Nuked and lockout with possible root rot as said....think it's the Cal/Mag and I've found that it's the kind of thing that if you overdo it, problems of lockouts come and it's a pain in the arse.  It's one of the reasons I've gone back to my old nutes and ways of doing things after experimenting with bottles for this that and everything.  It's a weed, doesn't need half all this guff and 'specialised nutrients' bollocks...snake oils for the most if it ;)

Thanks for all your help peeps, really appreciate it - heat has been an issue recently with the high UK temps - soil temps were hitting almost 30 degrees so I invested in a cool tube system which helped a little.... I didnt fancy investing in an air con unit for a few weeks of the year (maybe I should have :wallbash:). 

I was using Biosys feed earlier stages, could this help now?

 

I always lift the pots and check weights.... during the stages of using the 400w, it was taking a few days to lighten up, but the 600w combined with the hot spells we have been having, I have been watering once a day as they are light after 24hours or so.

 

:smokin:

Hope all works out. Watering once a day, adjust feed schedule down as possibly nute lockout. Possibly a bit late to deal with but always go with less is more, soil takes a fair time to fix issues so if it's real stressed, keep an eye out for hermie, I just chopped a plant, 6 out of 7 are OK but had a lot of issues this grow, I got lazy as been doing it so long I got complacent. The 7th was dieing with a few weeks left and it wasn't worth the risk a hermie could ruin the rest. Welcome to the club fella, been doing it 15years and still making the mistakes!
