    PH problems


    0 Not allowed!
    Hello everybody!

    I could use a little advice from you...I'm growing a few Northern Lights feminized. This is my first grow.
    Here's some info:
    Seeds were introduced in soil 24 days ago. Soil has nutrients and its PH per label ranges from 5,8 to 6,5. Until they were 2 weeks old I watered them with water of 6,45PH, no nutrients. I used CFL 150w on 18/24 schedule.
    At the end of week 2 I've changed them to a bigger tent and transplanted them to bigger pots. I'm not sure but I would say they're around 8 liters. The reason why I moved them to big containers was to avoid having them being transplanted again. They are now under 600w HPS same schedule and at around 80cm distance.
    Anyway, after transplanting I gave them plenty of water, but this time the water I used had a PH of 6,0 and added some nutrients but I checked the PH level before watering and it was within the 6,0-6,5 range. Soon after the transplant, some little yellow spots began to appear on the second set of leaves (the 3 leaves). Yesterday, since it was time to water them again, I went back to the same water I initially used with a 6,5 PH and now I'm waiting to see.
    Only the older leaves of 3 were affected, the new ones of 5 are growing and look healthy.

    My question is: will the plants recover? And should I cut the affected leaves? Since they're Indica the leaves are huge and making a bit of shadow to younger leaves that are showing up.
    All suggestions are welcome. Thank you!

    Your plant will be fine. After a transplant, plants go in to shock. Let it recover from that stress before you go chopping off any leaves. Youre plants are going to be fine.

    @Sativa guy
    This hobby really is like "watching the grass grow". I would think we could dump a new nutrient on to our plants and nake them leap out of the dirt and start dancing. This isnt the case. We add...and watch over a few days and see if we "over did it" or the respond postively. Most days its just adding water.

    So yeah...if you think you need to chop em. But those leaves are their power plants. Chopping them off early is slowing down its growth. Defoliating really comes in handy pre flower or during flowering. Personal opinion.

    I will allow the plant to reabsorb as much from the leaf before cutting them off, unless they are blocking other leaves. When they get more yellow then green they go.

    Thank you Gbauto. They seem to be doing ok. I noticed that the soil was too wet, it retained a lot of moisture. I have took some action to have it dry so things are looking cool now. Thanks!
