Had plant in 1ga pot growth fer fist month and half was amazing and all the sudden leaves started curling inward and lil brown spots finally take over. So i dried out soil from old pot transplanted to a 5 gal bucket soil maricle grow and 1 3rd topsoil plant seemed to like new home fer a day and now growth has almost stopped and growth from underneath branches is dying all the way to top. Closet space 3-2-8 foot lights150 watt hps and 4cfls temp 78 to 84 humidity 30-50 keep door open with fan running how do i post pics

Did you just put in into 12/12 the last few days ago? I would put it back to veg and get the plant healthy before going to 12/12. What kind of water are you using...tap..ro..distilled? Peace, Blue

I think you might be getting nute lockout. I would flush it with 3:1 water to soil ratio with ph'd at 6.5.If you have cal/mag I would use 2.5 mil per/gallon of water during the flush.The miracle grow soil concerns me.Let's see who else chimes in. Peace, Blue

Looks like a nute lock out. Blues got it right I'd flush it first and if you went from tap to bottle water I'd go back to tap which will likely supply enough calcium and mix 1/2 teaspoon per galllon epsom salts which will give you magnesium. Also you don't give a pH, insoil you need to keep it around 6.5 to help prevent nute lock-out.

okeedokee...flushing a plants medium is generally considered to be running 2.5X-3X the volume of the pot with phe'd water....the idea is to flush out the ph and ec/ppm to set it to within acceptable limits.... measuring the runoff is a good method to tell if this works....it has let ya know the plant needs more flushing.... I dont know the medium you are using, but coir ya want a ph of 5.8-6.0 .....soil will do well @ about ph 6.0-6.2 keep flushing until the runoff is same as water going in... Take a gander @ the links in my signature...many of them are there as reference material for GPeeps :toking: muA

Medi has you right in one aspect as far as why you flush... but the numbers are a little off IMO and according to this chart for soil. You don't want your PH to go below 6.4 in soil or you could have lockout... been there done that and almost lost 8 clones because of it. Also.. the coco coir Medi talked about kind of falls in between soil and hydro.... should be between 5.8 and 6.2... I keep mine as close to 6.0 as possible and when I was in soil... 6.5 was about optimal. Here's the chart.. with the link below... this should help you figure things out a bit. Well heck.. it won't let me put the image of the chart here.. but here's the link... https://www.greenpas...3-all-about-ph/ I'm going to move this over to the hospital where your problems started and a few peeps had started to give you a hand there. That way they can keep up with your progress easily. Hope this helps Hugs!
