can anyone help with this Mephisto autoflower? This is the second time that I am running into this issue during early flower. I just watered on Saturday with compost tea and I plan on watering again in a day or two. The leaves look healthy but obviously it is not happy. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.March 15, 2023 at 6:36 pm #1572
Looks a bit magnesium deficient from the picture. Not overwatering are you?March 15, 2023 at 6:41 pm #1573
If it was nitrogen it would be worse at the bottom. Seems like it’s the whole plant.March 15, 2023 at 7:49 pm #1575
I don’t think it’s overwatering. I give it about 1.5 gallons every 4-5 days. I could be magnesium. If it is what could be a good source to add to my next watering?March 15, 2023 at 7:54 pm #1576
Epsom salt. 1 tbsb per gallon.March 16, 2023 at 8:11 pm #1591
Does this show you more? I added the epsom salt todayMarch 16, 2023 at 8:12 pm #1592March 17, 2023 at 12:45 pm #1596
Wait a couple days and see what happens.March 17, 2023 at 1:09 pm #1597
I will. I also did raise my light a bit just in case. It’s so weird that I am having these issues with only Mephisto genetics. All my other plants love the environment and medium. Very strange. Thank you for your reply!March 17, 2023 at 10:38 pm #1599
They are actually perking up a bit after 1 1/2 days of the epsom might not seem like it but in person it looks like some life has been liftedMarch 18, 2023 at 3:42 am #1601
Glad to hear it! They do look a bit more perky.March 19, 2023 at 7:59 pm #1606
What do you think about it now? It seemed like the Magnesium did work a bit, but now it seems like it is in desperate need of something else. Please let me know your thoughts?March 21, 2023 at 9:07 pm #1622
Take a look at this. It’s often hard to tell things from a picture, especially when it doesn’t capture things up close, or the whole plant. Review this carefully and see if anything stands out to you. Feel that you actually have a couple deficiencies/imbalances at once. Sorry for the delayed response. If you want to bounce ideas off me and get feedback then you certainly can. I have a couple thoughts on the issue but I’m not really able to get the full picture of what’s going on if that makes sense. For instance, it appears to be worse on one side of the plant. In my mind that’s a root problem. The cause of it is difficult to discern. Could be poor drainage on that side, uneven ammendment application, compacted soil, etc.March 21, 2023 at 9:11 pm #1623
Honestly, the papery chlorosis looks like a symptom of soil being too wet, which was why I asked before.March 22, 2023 at 11:35 pm #1639
Hi, thanks for getting back. The plant seems to have this issue all over. I just lifted the pot and it feels very light so I imagine there is not much water left in the pot. Here is an updated pic. I wish I had some idea to bring to the table, but I am clueless. I am mixing up a compost tea right now and adding glacial rock dust for calcium along with worm castings and recharge. I’m hoping the calcium might work, but honestly have no idea. From the link you sent and from what I have seen it may look like Calcium. I am running RO water and have not added cal mag to it until recently. So my other idea is that I maybe started adding it too late. I am noticing my super healthy mephisto now has one leaf that is starting to show similar symptoms. Does any of that sound like a good idea?
