Looks like beginning on nute burn or lockout , what's your ph at? Soil, hydro?
Soil is Promix 50% 20% ocene forest 20% happy frog 10% per lite.. RO Water Lucas Ratio 700 ppn ph 6.0 fed every time.. plant is 2 foot high def showing in the middle area of the plant
It's nute burn no more lucas till flower bud.
I don't know promix soil, but it's definitely nute burn
Only thing you didn't cover was what products to use.
In my case I'm stuck with trying to figure out what nutes to use...or make my own from banana peals, coffee grounds and egg shells...or buying a fertilizer or seaweed kelp extract. WHAT DO I FEED MY BABIEZ
They will burn the shit out of your plants,especially that hammer head.bin that trust me,thank me later, try it on one plant if you dont believe me

Hey everyone I have a question - I transplanted two of my plants two days ago, one of them which ill refer to as #2 immediately started drooping and by the end of the day I had to prop up the plant. The next day (yesterday) #2 was standing on its own but it had brownish spots all over, and plant #1 started wilting. Today #2 is drooping and still has brown dying leaves. Plant #1 is also drooping/wilting and it has some yellowing on the bottom leaves.
When I transplanted I gently shook and rolled the root mass in my hands to get the old shitty dirt I was using out because in the new pots I'm using Roots Organics Original Potting Soil but also to expose the inner roots so I could add my stump tea to all the roots directly. I then put stump tea in the holes I had pre-dug for the plants and I placed them in their new homes filled them in with some more dirt and watered in with 1/8 Tsp Fox Farms Big Bloom & 1/8 Tsp Fox Farms Grow Big in a 2-liter bottle of Ph 6.5 tap water.
Please let me know what you think I can do to help the poor girls out. Thank you all very much for your help!!
I'm not an expert but it sounds like you shocked the living hell outta of your babies. Transplanting is going to definitely slow they're growth for a couple days but adding tea, big bloom AND big grow as well as your pH level at 6.5 ekkkkk...I hate to say but you might have over did it with all of that. A simple transplant would be sufficient til they get comfortable in there in home.
As for solutions, I'd say try not feeding or watering for at least 2/3 days. And oh you water to 6.7 / 6.8 max/min. Only water no feeding. Make sure your temps are correct. Otherwise I'm not to sure.
Pictures help alot for diagnosis
I would have to guess on the shock side of things plants dont like to be transplanted and have there roots messed with, it may take a while for her to get used of her new home. i generally wont water for the first couple days after transplant.
Im thinking shock also beat thing to do when transplanting is just phd water or half strength nutes at most. It sure sounds like transplant shock plus over fertilization. I think id try a flush first before anything.
Thank you for your help Burnzy! Yeah I'm not sure why I thought 1/4 strength nutes would be helpful for watering them in lol.. And sorry for the lack of pics I just don't have any on my phone at the moment but ill get a pic of #1 tonight. I got rid of #2 this morning unfortunately.
Alright gotcha thank you. I figured it was just shock but i never had a plant die from transplant shock before.. Guess theres a first for everything though
I used quarter strength nutes so I thought it would be helpful.. But I'll be using only water for transplants from now on that's for sure!
Ok heres a pic of transplant #1, the reason it's so bare is because on Thursday 7/20 (3-4 days ago) I took the bottom set of fan leaves off cause they were dying/dead and then this morning I had to take another set of fan leaves off because they had completely died and just needed a gentle push to fall off.
Also I gently squeeze the main stalk/stem each day just to see how strong it is and every day it has felt strong almost wood-like but today the outer layer was kind of soft when I squeezed it. I'm not sure if that means anything but I thought it could be helpful for a diagnosis.
Thanks again for the help fellow growers!!
You forgot "Rocket Fuel" formula! You can't grow plants without it.
