WElcome to Percys mate.... I dont think she is happy, what soil is that? Those big wooden bits will encourage bugs to live in there and they will get to your plant. It also looks dry...... can you tell us more about the grow?

It was mulch that someone told me would be good for em but it's nothing big. Jus some good bag seeds and a 48x48x80 and soil from my compost. I think she's got a nitrogen deficiency. And I started em outside also so they would have rly strong base? And the white stuff is diatomaceous earth

@templegrower will be able to help more with this i think mate he is a soil grower. But I think the soil is a bit compact too, so it doesn't have good drainage. Mixing the soil with perlite help keep the roots happy by allowing faster drainage so they can breath.

Yo, nice to meet you mang. Welcome to the forum!

Soil from your compost eh? I don't imagine you were able to do any sort of soil test on it before you planted? Compost is super variable in it's nutrient content depending on what was being composted, residence time (how long it sat there), and lots of other factors, and when used exclusively, can be a bit much (or not enough) for the ladies.

Macky may be right too regarding the soil compaction.. it's tough to tell from here without actually being able to feel it but, it does look a bit dense. Those chunks in that square pot, for example. That tends not to happen with well aerated soil. A high clay content is often the reason for those chunks, and clay is generally not something you want in your potting soil. It is extremely important regarding cation exchange capacity (CEC) though, but that's a different thread. 😉 

In regards to the the N deficiency, yeah they do look a bit faded in the bottom leaves.. any chance you are able to do a real good flush (assuming you have good drainage) and test the runoff TDS or EC? You'd need a probe like this in order to get that reading... you can use that value as a proxy for estimating the total amount of nutrients that you have in the the soil. If it's low (<~300-350ppm), then you know they're hungry, and should start feeding. That's the ideal situation. If you don't have the probe, I would give it a good flush, wash all the crap out of there and then water in a nice 1/2 strength fertilizer - whatever you have for veg, or even just a general purpose balanced NPK fert would do. If you're an 'organic' grower, find some alfalfa meal, blood meal, bat guano, crab meal, or fish emulsion (SMELLY)/fish hydrolysate (NOT SMELLY) and blend it 1 part to 3 parts worm castings and top dress your soil with that. Water in like normal and the deficiency should hopefully clear up in a few days. Assuming it is because if N.. 😉

I actually did just this about 2 weeks ago.. had some leaves literally just falling off my plants, nasty yellow leaves. After a topdress + a week of 5-2-2 fish emulsion, they greened back up nicely.

They look pretty good though honestly, especially the one in the round gray pot there. 👍 

Oh and the mulch is fine, just make sure there aren't any bugs sneaking around in there as mentioned. It did come from outside so, you never know. Diatomaceous Earth is a good strategy though. 👍

Ok! I'll make sure to do that! And the soil is pretty dense I'm jus waiting to get some cocoa. I was going to do hydro but I'd like to master soil or a less tricky medium first. 

Thanks tho guys!

@wwdwcd Mate, soil is the trickiest medium 😉 If you can grow well in soil, hydro will be easy. Plus we are always here to offer advice and guide you though the grow if you changed over man. Explore the hobby and try different things, youll love it

Looking a lil better Smile although, I'm thinking there's something up with the straight tall one on the right?? I drilled 1/4 in holes all around the pots, and the soil isn't no where near compacted like was. And I also decided to get rid of the brown mulch :/ it didn't have any bugs that I could see in it but it was outsidr in the rain a few times in the bags had mold on the top but the middle is fine but I still decided to toss it. Anyways lnk what u guys think. Appreciate the support
