Hi All,

These Blues are 4.5 weeks into flower. This is the first time I have grown Blues and was wondering about these long, thin, serrated leaves - they look amazing! What are your thoughts on them? What can I expect :smoke:

mine were the same until i topped them
They started out with big fat indica leaves then after a few weeks veg the tops started to bang out those thin ones.
Mine are still in veg and they have started to grow again

I know the original blues cut has the same thin double serrated leaf's

Ah OK, so this is what double serrated leaves look like?

:B):

Thanks veg4.

If you look at a couple of your leaves you will notice that some are like a saw, with little and big teeth.
Thats the double serration

Pic no3 for example, on the bottom leaf you can see it. Almost like a smaller serration growing between the big ones

I dont know if its just me, but in pic 1 the leaves seem to be curling in and clawing down.
This would suggest to me that you're using too much nitrogen.
I could be wrong but that's just my experience.
Can anybody else confirm or dissmiss my thoughts?

Hmm well I do not know. You are correct that the leaves were "curling in and clawing down" ... I can say that they are being watered daily, but I am not feeding them daily. I use 5ml/litre PM Bloom every 2-3 days - sharing the litre between 3 plants.

I'll watch the leaves between feeds and see whether they change at all.

Thanks TD420.

You need a better feeding regime than that mate. They shouldnt need watering every day and they should need feeding every water especially if you are in compost

Your plants also look like there may be a little heat stress unless thats the excess N causing it, hard to tell when you have taken pics with the light on

ED.....Just seen you are in soil so you definitely shouldnt be needing to water every day and 5ml per litre is a bit much

What do you mean by "should need feeding every water" ...

Your plants also look like there may be a little heat stress unless thats the excess N causing it, hard to tell when you have taken pics with the light on


Temps do not get above 21-23 so perhaps too much N?


ED.....Just seen you are in soil so you definitely shouldnt be needing to water every day and 5ml per litre is a bit much


Cool. So it looks like I am under watering and over feeding?

Thanks for the input Owderb :)

Try using a wet/dry cycle mate

Water(with feed)slowly till you have a run off and theres a little water left sitting in the saucer, you then know the rootball is fully saturated. Then repeat when the pot is around 80% dry which should be around 3 days minimum

Thanks fella. I see where I am going wrong - I water but do not saturate the rootball, which explains why they are dry (soil starting to separate from the pot) each morning.

Also, just taken a peek and watered them (and saturated the rootball but do not think I watered slowly enough), FWIW only 1 of the 3 is curling in and clawing down. The other 2 have their hands raised to the heavens :D interestingly, the curled in/claws down is the larger of the ladies - she stretched like a mofo in the first week or so of flower - obviously she is hungrier than her mates.

Thanks for all the advice! I only came in here to show the long thin leaves and ended up getting invaluable guidance! As a n00b I did not know I even had a problem!!

I'm in coco and anything above 1.5 EC in veg and they start to get a bit of burn, and their 4 months old and quite big now. They definitely prefer a casual feed and seem quite happy to dry out a fair bit till the next good soaking.

Nice plant btw, my Blues #1 expresses the thinnest leaves out of my 4 but not that thin! :spliff:
