Dark Orange Spots Help
Some of my sun leaves on my plants have devoloped small dark orange spots what could this be?
Stuck this in the problems section for more replies.
Fill out the troubleshooting form. Orange spots are frequently one of 3 things:
-low pH causing K lockout
-Scarring from thrip damage
Without more info (hint: pics) a solution is going to be impossible.
here is a pic
what are some solutions to this problem?
No cure; that's physical damage. Looks like the plant was in extended contact with a light. I would describe that as 'patches' not 'spots'.
thank you is that damage caused by heat or was it damage caused by a halogen light i stupidly tried to add to my setup? could that be sunburn on my baby?
also now some of my lower leaves are wilting (not the normaly dieing baby leaves) but my lower sun leaves
Halogen light caused that. And dare I assume that if you are using a halogen light, you probably don't have your lighting setup ironed out yet? Low leaves will doe off if the light is incorrect.
Please read up a bit on growroom setup- link in my sig is written out of order but very informative.
Just FYI- Without pics and filling out the troubleshooting sticky at the top of this forum section, NO ONE can tell you what is wrong with a plant. We are not mind-readers. You have to give more info than 'some leaves are wilting'. That could be just about ANYTHING.
here is my lighting setup
1 200 watt hanging incadecent
1 13 watt cfl
1 fish tank tube light
1 incadecent "plant light"
i tried to have light on all sides.
here are my yellowing leaves
if i start flowering on 12/12 for a week and then move them outside will they be ok and continue flowering? this was just for the veg stage. i live in PA and plan to move my plants outside at the end of June or sooner before natural 12/12 lighting occures
If that is your available light, move them outdoors ASAP.
There is almost no place in a grow room for incandescents, unless you are TRYING to add heat, as some growers in very cold areas might, and even then, you still need more light of the correct spectrum.
Of the lights you have, only the CFL and fish light have potential to help, rather than harm, your plants, and the wattage on both is far too low. They would be appropriate for cloning.
You should read some cabinet grow logs and see how much light from CFLs or tube flouros (usually T5s because of their very high lumen output) is needed to grow a healthy plant.
Plants started on 12/12 indoors will revert to veg if they are put out before the natural light changes to 12/12, and even then it will probably stress them, since the chances that you will be able to match the light cycle at the transition are very slim. Just put them out where they can flourish under natural light and flower in late August, right on schedule.
i want to cut off my yellow leaves and "sunburnt" leaf where should i cut the leaf at the base of the node where there are smaller leaves growing from? i think the yellow leaves are wasting more energy than they are taking in is this a good idea i know removing healthy leaves is looked down upon but these leaves are small and yellow and the large sunleaf is 50% orange
