    New grower - need help identifying an issue

    Hello there, first time posting so hope all is ok.

    I’m a first time grower, I don’t have much space or funds to set up a real grow area with lights and all. I’m also limited for space so the pot it’s in is about as large as I can go.

    there is a issue I’m running into where small spots in the leaf die and dry out completely. I removed the larger affected leaves and it picked up a little.

    what is this and how can I stop it?
    thanks for any suggestions, I appreciate it!

    Need input!
    Almost looks to be water spots, do you spray them? What is the PH? RH? Temps?
    The first thing to check with clawed leaves is bugs, then moisture.

      I’ve only ever sprayed with neem oil after a thrips infestation really early on

    I would not even bother growing except if you live in a legal state an can grow outdoors where it could have a chance. Your pissing in the wind of darkness. I'd give you some " hope " if you even considered a serious grow. I take growing weed seriously, it's my medicine.

      I’m from New Zealand so there isn’t anything legal about growing here at all.

      Just trying to do the best with what I can, thanks for the input though 😁

      Guess what, it isn't legal in Georgia either but I still grow both indoors and out.
      My outdoor grows are simply because I like to garden.
      The indoor grows are what I use to make my meds.
      Your plant is SEVERELY light deprived.
      I realize it seems daunting to start this journey, but growing has been quite liberating.

    Unfortunately you will find that it's just not a simple matter of planting some seeds in a pot and watering them. Many first time growers believe that because its called weed it will grow like crazy. It actually requires a good amount of care in order for it to produce any consumable product. some also think the fan leaves contain THC so they can smoke/consume them too. Unless the cannabis is really potent the content of THC in the leaves will be worthless. You'd have to smoke a lunch bag full of it to get a buzz equal to a beer.

    Having said all that it looks either over watered or too much heat and or humidity.
    I hope there is an afterlife...there are a lot of friends and family I'd like to see again, one day.
