Hi unfortunately I have changed a few things in-between grows. 

I have been using dry amendments and top dressed  2 weeks before flipping to flower.

I have added calmag to watering and used a foliar spray.

It is not drinking water and is at the point where I think I'm going to just start again.

Cheers for any help

Have you a photo of the whole plant mate? Are the leaves all over looking the same? Old growth/ new growth

Thanks I didn't think of looking at it from this angle. 

I had come to the conclusion that I over amended with bat guano in my top dressing


Hmm looks like calmag to me if your supplementing with calmag though it could be getting locked out by excess potassium or potentially again a pH lockout is that just a self watering system what medium are you using if so

I used a

2/5:cocco with 2%charge

2/5 biobizz all mix

1/5 living vermacompost with rotted manure from local garden shop

350g biobizz life cycle 

And perlite. 

I think I shouldn't of top dressed now I look at it

so what happens in Coco is the calcium binds on to cation exchange sites and the plant can't uptake it that's why we pre buffer it. then potassium and calcium kind of compete with each other so potassium will lock out  calcium if there's to high concentration but as your doing an organic grow I would of thought there would of been enough calcium in the compost and stuff your using tends to mainly be hydro/Coco issue not to common in organics

great answer mate!

Thank you. I use autopots so I will revert to hand watering and drop pH to 6

@macky yea I geek out over growing big time 😂 @moglo if it's organics your doing mate you shouldn't really need to adjust pH as the microbes manage the breakdown of the nutrients to make it plant available how are you supplementing the calmag is that bottled nutrients If so I'm not sure how they mix together and what effects that has I know people do it with really good results I've not looked in to it much personally but there's guru's of all sorts in this forum

I have been using biobizz calmag.

This grow has been my worst so far, which has been a great learning experience but I don't think this one is going to make it.

I have been trying a foliar spray to get the cal mag in to plant

Maybe you'll be able to pin point it with a pic. It's hard to tell from one photo of one leaf. Hope this helps @Mogol.            peace

A good rinse never hurt. 👍 


Potassium, Phosphorous and Calcium, these are example of deficiencies. You could have an excess. They had the names below each one but I guess they got lost in transport. Good luck.

It is not drinking water

Can be caused by wrong PH, high humidity and too much food in the medium.

Wrong PH and too much food will cause defiency as the plant cant really use any.

I would check my PH meter and do a proper flush than wait a week.

So can you flush a plant when using dry amendments?

Some stuff will still dissolve into the water and come out in the run off mate yes.

Yes, you can flush a pot with dry amendments. It might take a bit more water depending on how bad it is and might need to be repeated if it’s real bad but give it a shot.

 I will give it a go . It was my sexxpot entrant so I tried to push her. I might enter her into minger of the month for the win lol


She might not be a beauty queen but she’s still alive. Surely you can salvage something.
