Need help new grower

Is tap water too old-fashioned these days? But,yes with the EC of your water so low,you def need cal-mag. As mentioned above,you can spray with epsoms salt,and the leaves will absorb it quicker than adding it to your feed. ATB mate :yep:

Yeah mate, 

I'd start by adding CalMag to your rainwater,

(0.5-1.0 ml)per litre. That's for Old timer plant magic CalMag,

I don't know which CalMag you're using, use info on label as a guide but do start low to see if they still need more.

It's easier to fix under feeding than overfeeding issues. 

 

Then start adding your a, mix, then b and mix, then pH. 

 

You can also make up a solution of pure water plus Epsom salts about a tablespoon per gallon(half a teaspoon per litre roughly).

You can spray plants a couple of times a week. 

 

Try to spray the underside of the leaves, as this is where it's absorbed by the plant.

 

Spray at the beginning of dark periods to avoid damage from light being magnified into a small point.

 

This should stop it from getting any worse.

 

Other than this your plants are off to a cracking start.

Well done mate :yep:

 

What strain/s are you doing?

 

Best of luck with the rest of the grow :lucky:

 

:yinyang:

Thanks for the info mate much appreciated i will stop trying to flush the nutes out now and im gonna mix up a new feed tonight and see how they like it over the next few days, also when making the spray water should i add cal mag aswel or just ph water and epsom salts?

They are both gorilla glue thanks again

Don't pull a sickie! I'm also new to growing and facing challenges myself mate.. I don't have the best of knowledge when it comes to all this but if its any consolation your plants are looking a lot healthier than mine! Don't worry too much and don't miss work over it. I get worried about mine but when I worry I tend to overthink things and end up overwatering or something.. try adding some more nitrogen to their diet as Haduken said and if that doesn't work try something else. You'll get there mate patience is key :) 

thanks mate everyone on here been so helpful for my first 24hrs on here great community going on here so glad i joined in lol thought i was getting it all wrong but maybe im doing better then i thought but with the ammount of reading i have done over the last few months i would hope so will try to get more pics up of the girls asap

No need to pH or add any CalMag in the spray.

Just Epsom salts, give a good shake and leave in a warm place for an hour or so to warm up a bit and shake again before spraying to make sure it's well dissolved. 

 

When it comes to flower time, 

You'll want to keep an eye out for male flowers developing, which would cause your plants to produce seeds rather than sensi(un-pollenated) flowers. 

 

Gorilla strains(Gorilla glue particularly) is notorious for hermaphrodism. 

It's how they were created in the first place iirc. 

By accident. 

 

Best of luck with the rest of the grow mate :)

As you can probably tell shumroom has a lot more knowledge than me so if I was you I'd take his advice over mine :)

 

Good luck buddy

Don't fret about it.

You were honest in your post about being relatively new to this hobby. 

 

Being active in these threads is how we all learn from each other :)

 

I've got a lot to learn myself
