Is this the beginning of root rot?

Hello,

I am on day 16 of my first grow, I am noticing something strange on the tip of one of my plants roots and am concerned that this could possibly be root rot or the beginnings of it.

Currently the tank water is at 68f, I changed the res about 3 days ago with 6 gallons of ph 5.8 water + 12mL of hydroguard.

Here are some pictures of what I am seeing:

Bugs in grow room?! (HELP)

Hello. I have been growing in my tent for about a month now, and this morning I went to go and take a look at the plants. I was shocked to see these little flying bugs. Not sure what they are. But they are hanging in the soil and going INTO the soil even. I am not sure if they are laying eggs or what. But I am worried. I have put apple cider vinegar into a cup and put it into the side of the tent, 3 of those bugs already went into it and died. But there are like 15 others in the tent. How...

Yellowing Leaves??

Plant is watered whenever bucket feels light, last watered 3 days ago with 6 cups of water. Indoor grow in FFOF. Effected leaves feel crispy and are yellow patterened. The only leaves effected are the ones close to the lights which are 23w cfls. Lower leaves are healthy, so I dont believe this is a mag deficiency. What can this be??

Nute burn/deficiency. Any help?

Its been 3 weeks since the girls sprouted. 6 days ago after coming back from a weekend trip I notice that the plants was showing some signs of nutrient burn. Flushed both and 3 days after the burning stoped. After that, 2 or 3 days I notice that the flush took almost all nutriens that have left on soil and the plants was start to fade a little bit.
So a water with 150ppm of Biothrive grow and 100ppm of cal-mag.

2 days passed and the new grow seems to be good. What you guys think?...

Seedling problem

Hi everybody,
I've got a seedling under a dual cfl light,its 8 days in and the leaves haven't changed since they popped out of the soil,3 days ago I pulled the pot out of the tent coz it seemed to be too warm or that's what I out it down to when I saw the 2 jagged leaves of the four were shrivelling up to the point where they don't look like leaves anymore but more like 2 thin pins,I have been keeping water to small splashes on the soil around the stem,the soil is john innes seedling soil,I can't check temperature coz have no equipment but house is quite cool,even around the tent its still cool,I'm cold actually and prefer cold temperatures here,wasn't an over watering issue coz I've waterered minimal,its an autoflower pineapple express,first autoflower actually,all other grows have been good no problems,are autoflowers supposed to stay so small in first few weeks? I got some pics attached :)

Help ID Bug and Plant Deficiency

I was looking over my babies when I saw a brown speck running around the medium so i spooned him up and threw it under a magnifier, I can ID the bug and Ive spent too long to have my plant die to mites, also is this a magnesium deficiency or what? It's only affecting the top leaves and leaves exposed to constant light, so I can only guess it can either be light burn, or from the look mag View attachment 3969669View attachment 3969669View attachment 3969670 ...

Hi. Currently week 5 day 3 of flowering on a Kera Pure Kush feminised.

Using 1x viparspectra LED "300W", 1x Maxspect R420R Nano 60W and a couple of generic PAR38s. In soil, using biobizz nutes.

Drooping leaves

Hi everyone, been growing for 2 years now. Currently got 4 Autos of various strains, all 2 weeks old and one of them has badly drooping leaves! Hadn't given them any nutes until yesterday, and it was just a little organic feed for the roots. Also haven't been watering them that much, only every few days but they're in crap soil.

Weird white balls ...... not me, the plants

Hi there,

Ive been growing for a while now but have come across a problem Ive not seen before, I wondered if anyone here might be able to help?

The grow is 2 x Blue Widow, 1 x OG Kush and 1 x Mandarine cream under a 300w Platinum LED, they are in Bat Special soil and are being fed Canna Flores Terra with a bit of Dutch Pro Bud Explode and some additional N from time to time. Presently just ticked over 6 weeks in flower (12/12) so maybe have another 2 weeks to go.

Aaaanyway, I noticed yesterday that I had soem weird white growths on the top of one of the Blue Widow plants, it looks like they are starting to form on the second plant as well - BW are the two in the background:





They are almost like the hard bud on a Purple Haze or Orange Bud, they crumble if you rub them between fingers and dont have any evidence of seeds or anything else in there. The Kush and Creme plants arent affected and its only the 2 top buds on one plant that are really noticeable, they are 12 inches off the light…

Please help me diagnose deficiency

Hi all,

Wondering if you guys can help diagnose this one for me.

Going to try keep this brief. I'm unsure on strain(s) as I had 8 or so Barneys strains in one holder the lid popped while moving and all of a sudden my labelled collection turned to a mix bag of 50.

I'm thinking calcium, but its on the bottom leaves only not the new growth. Also had x2 leaves below this I trimmed a week ago thinking the problem was gone. Is it Magnesium?

Strange thing is only seems to be affecting one of them. I know that they are most likely 4 different strains needing different nutes but could I've grown 3X strains at once before and never seen anything like this

Is it worth changing formulas over to something else? Thinking AN at this stage, have been meaning to switch for years now.

Nutrients
Lucas Formula
Cali Magic
Great White
Root99 (Root enhancer)

Week: wk1 day7 (Of Veg)
PH: 5.8-6.0 normally 6.0 on the dot
PPM: 450 at this stage
Light: 1X600W at this stage 50-55cm from tops
Temps: 22.3…

Spider mites.

Alright guys so i came down with a case of spider mites, and they won. So i threw out everything. Unfortunately i have a tent set up in my garage so it's pretty much impossible for me to clean everything. About how long will it take them to die off with no plant life in the garage. I do have a few clones going for a future run. But there small and easy for me to keep an eye on, please help, any suggestions

deficiency or nute burn

Noticed these today. They were not there two days ago so I'm unsure if it's a deficiency or burn. Could be a mag issue? Medium used is biobizz light mix, feeds have been tap water (left out for a few days) apart from just over a week ago when I used some Grow.

Last feed was yesterday, used approx 1.4L water each like normal, with slight drainage to cover all areas. I don't check the ph of the water as I was told it wouldn't really matter in a soil grow. The issue seems minute. Each plant has like 1 maybe 2 leaves suffering from the problem but this could spread so best to sort it asap. If i've missed any info, do remind me please. Temps have been good lately, 29℃ and 44% RH

This is how they looked 2-3 days ago

Help! Bug identification needed

Hello all

As I checked my veg plants tonight, I noticed some small black specks on leaves.

Turns out it is some sort of bug, but I can't tell what it is. Black body with red legs, definitely visible without a microscope. No apparent webbing. The only thing I can think is that it's some sort of mite. The leaves look somewhat eaten and have lighter colored spots.

My big question is will it recover? I know it has a bunch of yellowing, and drooping leaves. I had PH and temperature problems, but seem to have it under control now.

Current I'm letting it dry completely out, then planning on doing my first light feeding with GH flora series. Its looking in rough shape though, I'm not sure if there is anything to help this...

first grow help needed please.

So this is my first every grow and I am currently at week 8. I am using biobiz bloom and grow and if I am totally honest I have struggled with the feeding schedule. I was given a guide from a mate but I am just not happy with it and I am looking at moving towards old timers of the the next grow.

As you can see in the photo the leaves are yellow/brown and are curling up at the edges. I water them every 2 days giving them nearly 1.7ltrs and as the guide says 6ml bloom. Can the more experienced growers please advise me on whats happening and if or what I am doing wrong.

Thank you all for any help.

So, what's going on here now?

I've recently had some problems, and a good person by the name of Johni if I'm right, helped me get rid of 80% of my problems.After getting rid of the dirt, I realised I put in plastic cups on accident from my previous grow, which impacted the plant hardcore

Newbie Grower Needs Some Help!

Hey all! So I need some help figuring out where I went wrong and how to correct it and avoid the same problem in the future. The biggest and busiest is the OG Kush. The second largest, and most yellowed is the older King's Kush. And the second King's Kush is in the big 2 gal. The last one seems to have taken off since I transplanted it and the roots had time to reach down into the SuperSoil on the bottom half of the pot.

Is This Tobacco Mosaic Virus (TMV)?

Hey guys,

I have checked every sticky thread and diagnosis guide I can find and I have ruled out everything except Tobacco Mosaic Virus or a weird genetic trait.

It's not thrips, it's not heat burn - I noticed one leaf that looked weird, then I noticed curling, then more leaves started to exhibit similar traits as the plant grew.

My other plants are fine, and this was a new clone from a local medical dispensary - hence it being suspect. The room temp is at 75, the pH is at 6.5,...

Heat stress and stunted growth

Easy growers

Summer temps have been a bitch and I found that my Kush plants haven't exactly budded ass I anticipated. For the last two weeks I have struggled to keep temp down and one day the extraction cut off meaning the temp inside the grow room was 45c for a number of hours. It has since been around 34-37c each day during the heatwave we have had in the U.K.

I'm in week 7 of bloom and they are still very small and hairy. The buds are very "airy" and there are no signs of and orange hairs.

I know that they have been severely stunted down to the crazy heat in the tent over the last few weeks but my question is should I just chop next week (week 8) as originally planned or is it worth giving them 2/3 more weeks to mature?

Growing 9 kush in coco under 2 600w hps. Ph is 5.8 feed Mills a&b, bloombastic and hydro honey @1.2ec. Hand fed.

Very small hole, but big enough to stick a safety pin tip into-haven't really seen many other signs of distress-a few small abrasions to some leafs, but no bugs, from what I can tell.

Critical + Outdoor , critical conditions.... PICTURES

Hi everybody,

I am having problems with my Critical + CBD FEM, grown outdoors in a 20 Gal. smartpot.

The plant is 2,5 months old, started inside with neon light and outdoor since a month or so. I did Fimming and LST to contain the shape.

Since the last two weeks she started to show some kind of problem but now things are getting worst very quicky.

At first some discoloration on the lower fan leaves, now moving quickly to the big leaves on the upper branches... Some of the lower leaves fall easil, with a very light pull, the start discolorating, getting yellow, and then shrink and dry.

I am using Biobizz ( Biogrow and Algamic ) following their schedule, plus I added Epsom salt at the last two waterings. Also sprayed the leaves with epsom salts.

I started watering the plant with tap water for 2 months, then as a friend suggested once i noticed a slowth in the growth , so i started checking ph and make corrections with ph minus. ( tap water is almost 8 PH where i live, lot of calcium dep…

Deficiency prob I'm pretty sure

wus up guys I need some help. I'm not sure exactly what my problem is. I think I have a magnesium prob. It starts by just slight changing from green to more and more yellow it start towards the end of the leaves but not at the tips. Once it starts yellowing it gets worse and worse till it turns brown.
