    HELP! Plants not Happy !?

    Hey Internet !!

    I need some help on how to save my plant ! This is only my second grow , first plant I did exactly the same method and its hanging to dry at the moment . This plant looks like its about to die ! Not sure why .

    I think its a Ph problem but i balance my water before watering the plants everytime . My reader says the water is at 6.5ph then I stick it in the soil it says a little higher than 7 . So naturally watering should lower it a little . However when I water the Ph on the reader drops down to 3 .

    I don't understand how neutral water plus slight high ph soil can turn so acidic ??

    Anyway I attached picks on my unhappy plant any ideas how to save her ??

    I think the Ph is a little low. Up it to like 6.7 or 6.8 Also looks like your humidity is a little high as well, Need to be in the 40's. That just my opinion. I'm sure someone with more experience than me will chime in. Did you look at the diagnostic part of the main page??????? You may figure it out yourself.
    Are you using pen or strips for ph? Maybe a calibration issue?

      How long until harvest for her?
      I put the moisture meter I had in its proper place, the trash.Lifting the pot will tell you when to water it, if its lite water if its heavy dont.
      As for the PH meter part it will not be very accurate, at least mine was not. If the soil is dry this meter will not test it, nor will my expensive one.
      More input needed, what is the soil, pot size, strain, lights (and actual watts from the wall), distance, watering/feeding schedule, and anything else you can tell us.


        Hey Guys thanks for the replies....

        So yes tried to self diagnose but am unable to pinpoint the problem. I lm pretty sure its ph
        Monday will be the start of week 11 for this plant .
        soil is all mix

        can't really lift the pot to check moisture as I've turned a shopping trolley into a grow space 😅
        strain check photo .




            I had the same meter and I had to put it in the garbage. It was never accurate. I see your shopping cart is your pot. Maybe next time you should use a 3 or a 5 gallons pot. Just saying.

            Here try this :
            Light: Viparspectra P2000, Viparspectra P1500, Viparspectra XS2000, KingLed 1500
            Medium: organic, Fafard perlite, Fafard Urban Garden organic mix, Organic compost shrimps.
            Nutrients: Alaskan Fish, Advanced Nutrients Big Bud, Advanced Nutrients Ancient Earth, Advanced Nutrients Sensi Cal Mag Xtra

              SoOrbudgal I think he's shopping for advices.

            Hi J420
            That's interesting...not sure if we've seen a shopping cart used as a garden in here before. It's going to be tough for us to help you out but it looks like a deficiency of some sort...or a lockout. Those PH meters are not very accurate. I'd say do a runoff test'd be nice to know the approx. PH of the soil. Maybe do a slurry type of test. Try and get the lights overhead, is it getting too hot in there?
            Watch won't help with your plants at all though....

              That was great

            I gotta say I luv the pot, I bet it moves easy.
            But I have a question, is there any drainage? How does air get to the roots? And how does water get out?


              So I’m going to throw my guess out there just for fun lol. It looks like a nitrogen issue probably because of hot soil and a plant that is close to harvest and is taking whatever nutrients it can from the leaves before it dies.


                cheers for all the comments peeps, unfortunately the old girl didn't make it ditched the ghetto grow for a proper tent, got a Northern lights and amnesia haze growing atm .... still got issues though so making a new thread for my two new babies... peace !


                  I don't know your exact situation but check your water. I was using nothing but bottled water for a while, and then ran out. So I figured I'd better check the PH of the tap water before I started using it to know what to expect. Turns out the bottled water is PH 6.5 and the tap water is 7.5 (in my area, city water)

                  Not a huge difference but to some of the old school min/maxers growing pot since Jerry Garcia was in short pants that kind of difference is "critical", I guess. Doesn't seem to affect my crops any
