My Super Lemon Haze is having serious problems. Purple stalk, yellow dead leaves, and spotted leaves.

At one point my PH had gotten to 7+, on all of my plants. I'm about 8 weeks in on my first grow. The temp is usually between 75F and 85F, while the humidity hovers between. 55% and 70% at its highest around mid day. I flushed it 5 days ago and now its around 6.5. I realized after a soil test it was low in all the 3 NKP nutes. Just fed them with a full charted dose of the organic nutes i use yesterday. The stalk has turned purple and woody, but still has new growth. The other plants, all different strains, seem to be rebounding from the problem, although the Super Lemon Haze is still having trouble. Can you help plz

Run off ph and ppm ? How do you know you were low on nutes? What kind of test? she looks locked out to me.

I watered it with a lower ph until runoff after i noticed tacoing of the leaves. I did a soil test with a kit i have using distilled water and capsules. that told me the soil was depleted of nutes. She might have been locked out just like my other plants but she's the only one that hasn't recovered.

It looks like it's starving, I'd give it a splash of calmag, then feed it at least 600ppm of nuits until you get a good runoff. PH 6.0, and see how you go, it may be slow to return.
Run off was 6.5 on last i watered about 56 hrs ago. also fed with 700ppm. dropping watering PH to 6.0 for future waters. should i remove the partially damaged leaves or will they still partially work until it comes time to prune them? Also will the stalk come back or is it purple woody forever? Thx Man

I'd leave them on, the plant will suck them in, which is why they're going brown. The brown spots look like calcium def spots, so you can be your last dollar it has a magnesium def too. Your tops don't look that bad, so it should bounce back with in a week.

Get a generic and STRONG fertilizer..
Flush the soil out .. idk that pots size but flush...just to cover all bases of what may be wrong..
Then water her w a full strength fertilizer .. and if you got it.. chuck some unsulfured molasses in to cover the cal mag thats usually missing in fertilizer..
And then just make sure her lighting, temperature, humidity, and air movement stay decent.. and leave her alone... let her dry out a bit before next watering..
Imma be honest.. its probably not ph problem.. but use tap water that has sat out 24 to 48 hrs.. or spring water...it gives those small minerals you neglect to give usually..
Imma be honest.. i never check ph.. and I use my tap water usually .. i let it sit 24 hrs sometimes longer if im lazy lol.. i know my local waters ph is between 8.5 and 9 .. and my plants have never responded poorly to it.. i truely believe soil buffers this.. and ferts make it more acidic on their own..

Run off ppm? Next time you water, wait 10 min afterwards and give it another cup of nutrient solution and collect the runoff after that for testing.
How is the temperature in there during lights on and lights off? Are they sitting on a cold floor?

No they are all elevated. temp during light period is around 85 usually, inline fan and carbon filter see to that. During black out, I've had to leave the carbon filter on to keep the humidity low, I caught it at 85% a few times. and i'm getting a ppm tester today. I've been using filtered water and measurements to get my ppm going in to this point.

Looks like you're not letting it dry out enough between waterings to me, it's probably causing other issues. Also leaving dead leaves on the soil can invite bugs

They aren't over watered to my knowledge. I water about every 3 to 4 days. The heat in the tent and the amount of perlite and vermiculite i mixed in the soil drys it out pretty quick. I also don't water unless they soil is dry about 3 inches from the top soil. Every now and again I will let them dry out a little.

Yeah it was hungry for weeks. Advanced deficincies showing. Since you fed hopefully a complete fertilizer it will take a few days to a week to show much improvement. When we see spots and such it has already been deficient a week or more. The bad leaves wont recover. When you see healthy new growth remove them.

If you flushed and fed all you can do is wait.

That makes the most sense. I went out of town for a week, got back about a week ago. Before everything was perfect. My mom and brother were suppose to keep an eye on them and didn't. I suspect i wasn't feeding them enough before because i burned my first run with Kaya 47 and over compensated. When I returned they were under watered, malnourished, stressed, the light somehow got off it's timer and was on 24hr a day which further dried them out. I Immediately watered all until runoff. looked better but the problem kept progressing. 4 days later tested soil ph and nutes saw it was at about 7ph and nutes depleted. so i watered until saturation and retested the soil 4 inches deep and saw that the nutes were at high levels and the ph was at just under 6.5. That was about 3 days ago when i posted this. I have saw changes in all my plants, this strain i hope is just taking longer to recover because at this point as you said all i can do is wait. other strains are Scooby Snacks, Clemintine, Kaya 47, and Star Killer.

Yeah I think it may be lockout I'm having same issue but mine are too far gone as I did nothing thinking someone posioned my stuff. Cause my other plants had dead grass around it. I hope yours bounce back super lemon haze is a amazing strain and they look like happy plants before whatever went wrong best of luck. second picture is the plant that someone posioned.

Body Builder is Silica. Make sure to mix that before everything. Body Builder --> Calmg ---> Grow ---> Tea. Roots in there after the grow.

Your "dry 3 inch from the top" scenario is about what I expected, you're not letting it dry out, you need to let it be near bone dry

the best way to learn a proper wet/dry cycle is to take a pot the same size your using & fill it up with the same Medium you're using and set it aside

Then when you think you want to water, unless the plant weighs virtually as much as the dry pot you've set aside -don't water it! Wait until they're virtually the same weight; Hope this helps, good luck!
