Yellow/Brown leaves

Posted (edited)

Hi. This is the most abused plant imaginable, my first ever and I think I've made all the mistakes possible so probably going to be a combination of faults. It's NL Auto in cheap Co-Op compost, in its third week of flower under CFLs. Only after this started happening did I feed it a bit: Cal/Mag and Cactus feed at about half the dose stated on the bottle, twice. Can't tell if the feeding made it worse, but I'd say  it was going this way anyway. It's happening to new leaves too, even the tiny leaves coming from the bud are going brown. I'm in Brum, really soft water here.

Sorry mate, looks unwell.  I always start mine off with premium and expensive £15 a 50 litre bag of soil.....If the roots arent having a good start there is no hope for the plant itself is my theory.

 

Biobizz All Mix,  Canna Terra Pro, Plagron Batmix.  Those are my go to bags of soil.

 

I also use £10 a litre bottles of Biobizz nutrients as all those random plant feeds will not give the cannabis plants the nutrients in the right amounts.

 

You are giving it 24h light I presume?

 

At this point, even though it is an auto I would want to pot it into pukka soil and hit it up with Biobizz Alg A Mic & Fishmix, and see what happens.

 

Get a couple more seeds on when you have some nice soil and feed ready for them?

 

All the best,

 

Insp.

Yeah start with good soil compost  Biobizz ,

I fell into trap of getting good compost from super markets.  Every time I tried a new strain I was having problems.  Plants dieing.   Turns out it was compost    If it looks black heavy. Doesn’t drain that good after compaction  . My go to strain was easy to grow so could grow in supermarket compost.    People will come in say nothing wrong with supermarket compost    And they are right until you get bad batch.

Thanks for that. It's already in a ten litre pot and I figure there's only about three weeks of flowering left, is repotting an auto going to be practical do you think? I'll look at the nutrients you've recommended for sure. So close to the end all I need to do is help her to limp over the finish line. Some of the buds are already getting sticky it's going to be a major disappointment to lose her so close.

Aye, see it through and learn from the experience, its what we all do.  Get some more seeds on the go :D

It's a miracle that this plant has survived at all. I'd be too embarrassed to post a full-frontal photo, you've probably never seen anything quite so stunted.

My auto growing days are over.  Best off with a fast photoperiod, more bud, better bud and only a couple more weeks growing.  Well worth two extra weeks, plus clones of course ;)

Thanks. I have some litmus paper strips lying around and twice I've checked the run-off water and both times it's shown bang on 7, which I understand to be within tolerance for compost. Worth keeping a check next time probably.

I'm moving house in about four weeks. Never tried to grow before but I did have some CFLs lying around left over from a aborted attempt about 6 years ago. So I just thought, knowing that I had a 12 week window, that I'd take advantage of lockdown to try and get something quick and easy grown.

 

It's honestly not a problem with the plant type, it's the abuse I've given it messing about with stuff I shouldn't be.

Oh you couldn't make this one up. The top layer of a big part of this plant was burned off about three weeks ago because the crappy cheap chinese LED bulb I bought was too powerful. Total massacre. I mean, too bright, what are the chances? Nothing to do with this problem today though, the photos I've upped are from the CFL-lit parts.

So every single leaf went horrible brown/yellow and I looked at the buds and they weren't changing so I chopped it down today. The plant was only at the start of its fourth week of flowering but I'm wondering if it hadn't just gone through the process quickly to avoid the abuse it was getting, the buds are dense and sticky, perhaps all those yellow leaves was just caused by the plant draining the nutes out to finish off. The root ball completely filled a ten litre pot and looks really healthy to me.
