My plants were doing fairly well, but after they started budding they came down with something nasty. Any ideas? I'm currently using Maxsea 5-20-20 3x a week

Looks like root rot. Did you do a flush when they started flowering?

No. First time grower. I have no idea about flushing. I'll take pics of the other plants tomorrow afternoon when I get home from work. I know that some of them have bugs, but there are some other things that i don't know about. I have some more at a different property, and they're doing fine.

Ok I got some more pics. Leaves on this plant are cupped a little

Leaves around the bottom of the plants look like this

Edges of the leaves look dried and burnt, and some of the leaves have a weird color

Too much nitrogen most likely.

I've been using 5-20-20 for the last few weeks. Could it be the nitrogen content that's already in the soul

Very much so. Was it rich soil to begin with?

It doesn't look like too much nitrogen. Leaves would be very dark green, glossy, and clawed not wilting. Based off of it happening after the switch, and assuming they were completely healthy during veg... I think they might need more phosphorus. Judging off of the crispy leaves, they are blue/bronze type color.

I also think Phosphorus. The plant is too green for it to be nitro and the signs would be different.

You can see the purple stem on the fan leaf this is a sign that your plant needs phosphur.
The leaves curling up though is strange, thats typical of overheating. Is it really hot at your spot?

The taco shape curling is very indicative of russet mites. A good dose of pyrethrin based bug spry like Worry Free would clear that up for sure. Russets are microscopic and very hard to detect without at least a 16x magnification loupe or scope, the discoloration looks to be a nutrient problem. I would assume its due to high PH. start watering with some 6.0 water and you should see an improvement to your new growth.

I live in Northern California. It's extremely hot here

OK the burnt tips in this pic look like signs of micronutrient defiency; most likely Mg or Zn.

the cupped leaves here are a sign the plant is trying to dissipate moisture from it's system.

yellowing of the leaves starting a the bottom are a sign of nitro deficency, but the purpling of the stems indicates that it's not N you're lacking, but sulphur.

The spotting and discoloration are another sign of micronute def. Looks like Mn.

Most likely what you need to do is add a moderate doase of a good broad-spectrum micronutrient; specifically one high in sulphur, manganese and zinc. Also, don't water quite so often. Water absorbs and retains heat much better than earth or matrix does and NorCal gets enough sun that constantly sopping roots become a breeding ground for pythia and root rot, both of which can produce that "burnt" look at the edges and tips of leaves. Add a little H2O2 to your nutrient solution when wattering for a few weeks to kill any root-pathogens that may have cropped up.


Don't neglect your micro regimin, invest in a hydometer, and detox your rootbed.

no fucking idea what I'm talking about but I saw 2 infographics about muhdeficiencies, the post

please stop spreading the micronutrient meme around, 95% of cases is something completely unrelated to micronutrients, and 4,95% you can fix those micronutrient related problems by fixing your pH/stopping salt build up

OP, looks like overwatering+mites+overall shitty feeding regime, but it probably doesn't matter anymore because I'm replying to a fucking 2 months old thread anyway

this board sucks man
