Grow medium (soil, coco, hydro): Soil

Strain: unknown but it looks like a hybrid

PH of your nutrient solution ( Feed): 6.2

PH of the run off, or Reservoir: unknown

EC/ PPM of Nutrient Solution before Feeding:unknown

EC/ PPM of the run off, or Reservoir: unknown

Nutrients Brand, and how many ML per litre of which foods.  Green Planet 3 Part kit (following guide for soil)

Grow room temps lights on/ lights off ( On/ Off): 25/20

Grow room humidity lights on/ lights off (On/ Off) unknown

Res temps if hydro: NA

Lighting type and wattage (hps, led, cfl): led (can’t recall the wattage but it’s a grow light we bought from a supply store) and a red heating light (like what you use for reptiles)  

Extraction (Size of Extractor, and where you draw and exhaust air from): our grow area is about 15 feet from our patio door which we keep open for fresh air. Not sure if this is enough. We also have a gentle fan going by the plants to hopefully help with circulation.

We just have an area of our living room where we have our set up. The plants were growing nicely and then we moved  them inside as the temp outside dropped steeply and humidity increased a lot! They look like they are about in their third week of the bloom cycle. Firstly bottom older leaves were starting to drop. They are yellowing a bit and have some crispy brown spots always touching the edge of the leaf. Most of these leaves are also curling lengthwise downwards and some upwards. Now the bottom new leaves are going dark brown starting at the tips. The blooms on the bottom branches now have brown hairs.  

We have 11hr light and 13hr uninterrupted darkness. 

I tried flushing them for two weeks because a friend thought it was too much salt but nothing changed. Maybe got worse. 

I am new and obviously don’t know what I am doing. Any help would be so greatly appreciated!

Welcome to Percys Baab, this is definitely not getting enough light imo. your going to need a better lighting set up to keep her happy. And she may be getting too cold too. She look fine in regards to feeding, but id say a stronger light and some heat would do her good

Sorry I didn’t post a picture of the big led light I have as well on her. Even with the led I should put another light on her? The top of her looks good it’s just the bottom where there is trouble. 

I will increase her heat :)! 

Thank you

Can you get a picture of the whole plant Baab under normal light, then we can make a good diagnosis. 

The leaves at the top are not happy, I think it could be the light for sure, and temperatures too. That's what leaves look like when they are cold too much. I think a better light would fix the issue. 

After seeing the whole plant, it will be easier to tell if its a nutrient problem or not, but the top of the plant is definitely showing symptoms of lack of light and heat Smile Get some more light in there if you can

@macky sorry the set up is so awkward as we have very limited space. Ya I bet the bottom branches aren’t getting much light at all. I will increase the heat and see about getting another light.

Hey BAAB, welcome. I agree, you need moar light! A lot more. Maybe 6 or so of those light strips you have hanging there. Too bad you had to bring her in though - looks like she woulda been a monster out there!

Oh wow! Okey! I already ordered two more lights but I will add some more. 

Ya I know! I am not absolutely positive that I needed to, that’s just what other growers in our area were saying we need to do so I went off of that because I have no experience with growing these amazing plants.

Yeah. 6 was just kinda number more than 2 haha, but just make sure you're upping your lumens. For something like that, the more you can get in there the better but, don't do more than you can or is safe, obviously. Kinda a thing to bring a big branchy beast like that in and try to 'make her fit' though, lol. They can usually take a bit of frost, depending on the varietal but better safe than sorry for sure. I grew autos this year, and they stayed nice and small - maybe 2-3 feet at most - and I was able to get 2 crops of 4 plants (April - Aug, July - Sept), maybe got 8-9. I still have one lady out there though, but she'll be much easier to bring in than yours if i have to, haha. Maybe something to look into next season...
