I went  for  calcium   after  Dust's  advise


made a water solution  with ~10-15 eggshells    which i  pulverized 1st. - will see how it reacts

I would have thought the same as Dust then, a cal/mag problem maybe, as I have had this happen to me :)

I had a very similar thing in my last grow. Calcium deficency that was fixed very easy with a few doses of trace elements. Some times calcium deficency symptoms appear from not watering enough, in this case its not calcium you need, its a more consistent watering program.

Did I read your post correctly?

You grow in 5-7 litre pots?

You water them with .5-1.5 litres at a time?

And you use a coco+ soil mix?

If that is the case, imo you are not flushing the excess nutrients out and replacing them with fresh well balenced nuts.

You need at least 10% run off to help wash away unused nuts, or you will end up with a excess of chemicals (eg if you plant is in flower it is not using nitrogen as much as it want p & k,so your nitrogen levels will continue to climb and they can get to toxic levels, and also effect the absorption of other chems (mostly trace elements)like calcium)

All the best and I hope you get on top of it.

Yes  YOu had it correct  , th eplant is in 5.7 L Pot , coco  soil  mix  and i water it most of the time with 0.5L , sometimes if i give it a  few days rest from watering  they get bog one   with 1.0  -  1.5 L



yeh i did not  flush it  at all  , I know I should but the plant was doing  tjust great .... 



as for nitrogen  at flowering -  the same I was thinking  looking at Power feeding  proportions - but loooks like they are working  , VARY low P  and high  N for the full extens of grow ...

Also get an exact idea of what your pH is. If you are powder feeding it is most likely correct and stable but depending on your water source, your pH could be fluctuating. Keeping a steady pH is as important as having your pH in the correct range. All of these guys are correct in their advice, I just wanted to add that because it sounded like you might not be monitoring pH. Using a lot of pH Up and pH Down products in soil isn't a good idea, but if you absolutely need to raise, silicate additives(water soluble silicon) raise it dramatically. It is a micronutrient that plants use to strengthten and thicken cell walls anyway and is OK to use in soil. If you absolutely need to LOWER pH, you might have a hard water situation and want to invest in a nice 3 stage filter(reverse osmosis, UV, carbon).

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
