I'm looking for any feedback on this plant. It's a strawnanaberry, growing outdoors near Denver, CO.
Using the hempy bucket technique, clay balls on the bottom, coco coir on top. Water three times daily with Fox Farm GrowBig on feedings 1 and 3, FoxFarm Big Bloom on feeding number 2.
I have been fighting spider mites with a solution of Green Clean from Central Coast Garden Products.
About a week ago, several leaves turned brown and mushy in the middle. Lower fan leaves started turning yellow as well. I gave a good flush with distilled water for a day, then began adding FloraMicro from General Hydroponics to the solution for feedings 1 and 3. Now, the fan leaves are looking like classic nute derivation, as you can see in the pictures attached. The newest growth looks pretty healthy, but I still have die-off on my fan leaves.
Also, it seems to be flowering already, I've never had a plant with so many pre-flowers all over it. This strain is not supposed to be an auto, and this plant is in full sun all day, so the flowers are a bit of a mystery to me as well. Does anyone think I should switch to Tiger Bloom already, or just treat it like regular veg and keep at it all summer?
Thank you for any input!
