    :depressed: I need help!
    Taco leaves and new pistols turning red and dying
    Could it be just the heat? and low RH?
    I spray them down with water everyday to cool them.
    I dont feed much at all...but, I did feed them lightly(i think) last week
    They are still praying everyday..and look fine at 1st glance
    But, zoom in and you can see the hairs dying

    Are they sick? Just too hot? or Nute burned?:confused:

    Not sure if it's what you have- but that looks identical to the russet mite damage I experienced a couple years ago. The vector plants were just destroyed by those fuckers.

    They are minuscule and not visible to the eye. I saw what looked like a beige or off white fungus on the main stem of the vector plant, scraped it with my fingernail and looked under the scope... All mites, thousands just on the tip of my fingernail. But yes they also ate the pistils with fury, it was the first indication that something was off.

    Good luck I hope it's something else, russets are the worst pest I've experienced so far.

    I dont see any burn so maybe just hungry. Taco leaves is supposed to be Magnesium def. Unless a bug or something with the soil.

    o.k. if its just plain water your good & your well ph should be solid .....

    if you have the wind, the heat should not be a huge issue. the leafs look great in color, they love kelp!

    check for bugs so u can stop them now .... how does the rest of the garden look ? is it just one plant ? your doing the same thing with everything ..., and its all looked good for months. so go with generaltherapys advice ...

    I think,
    outdoor--
    tacoing can also indicate too much water...

    Sick, not sure, but sadly I am thinking possible mite of some type...

    Not too hot, cannabis thrives in the heat so long as she has proper water and nutrition available
