So I should know by my next watering what exactly it was. If it's nutrients, then the plants will correct themselves shortly after the next watering with nutrients, right?

If not then I proberely had a messed up PH?

Thanks pal.

This may help:

The Complete guide to Sick Plants,pH, and Pest troubles!

I think this thread is a rollup of stuff that made it's way into the book:

Im thinkin of going back to rain water again, it solves my ph issues at least!

Maybe even "snow" water hehe!

WATER CUCUMBERS AND RADISHES WITH MELTED SNOW ....

Experiments carried out in the Siberian Botanical Garden
showed that cucumbers and radishes, watered with melted snow,
grew twice as fast as the control plants watered with ordinary
water. Similar results occurred in experiments with wheat.
Why is melted snow better for plants than ordinary water? Snow
contains about 40 percent less heavy water or deuterium oxide
than normal water. Deuterium (symbol of D) is a heavy isotope
a form of hydrogen, but slightly different. When combined with
oxygen it does not form the water molecule, H2O; instead the
molecule D2O is formed. Normally, about one water molecule in
every 6,000 is found to be a heavy water molecule. But somehow
the formation of snow removes many of these heavy water
molecules.
Scientists have discovered that D2O slows down some chemical
and biological processes. So, when heavy water molecules are
removed, plants seem to grow faster

So Dave#1, How are we going to go about colecting rain water and snow in the winter? I ready to give it a try.

Peace

Ive got some plastic containers outside now collecting snow.
I melt it indoors then pour it into my watering can.
Ive thought about taking the watering can outside and just filling it with snow but it would be really bad if anyone saw me!! haha....(look at that nut job! )

My mango haze is loving it

Got to love Captn's post. So far from my grows I have found PH to be the most important factor when watering. It doesnt matter what you give your plants if they cant accept it. I have seen people on here grow with almost no nutrients and still have huge dank nugs. If I were you I would try to apply a foliar if you are having issues with the soil until you get the ph issue corrected. This way your plants can still accept nutrients directly through the leafs.

Edit: I also heard Nutriboost is good for helping with stressed plants.

Greetings Steve,

Sounds interesting.... Another product I found very effective is earth juice catalyst. Great for greening up some plants overnight. I had a veg tent full of plants that were yellowing a little. A quick blast of the earth juice catalyst and the next day they were double as green.. Great stuff.

Best Regards

Anyone ever had the stems of the fan leaves split and ooze sap?

Right now it is happening to a few in my garden and I am trying to figure out what is going on...I am thinking cool night temps may be the culprit?

Fan leaves already yellowing, plants have literally only a day or two left before the chop so I'm not really worried....just more intrugued I suppose...anyhow sXi I hope yall get things straightened out my friend!

hey there SxI,

superthrive and earth juice are right along the same lines, so good you are using that.

the way i collect rain water is with a 50gal drum, a tarp, and some bungee ties. ive basically fashioned the big tarp to act as a large funnel leading into the drum.

a good storm here in the south of the US can yield me 10 gallons with my setup, and more with the random containers placed throughout my property.

collecting rainwater is by far the best way to water your garden imo.
