Hey everyone i recently transplanted this mimosa evo from barneys farm, the day after the leaves got real droopy now theyre getting yellowing between the veins on the bigger lower fan leaves its exactly one month old today. The ppm of the water is at 58 and the ph of the water is at 5.54. As for nutrients i diluted 4ml of an sensigrow a+b in a 2 litre bottle and have been feeding it with that every 2-3 days with plain water inbetween. Thanks in advance for any help

Your ph is way low. It should be around 6.4 for dirt
Thanks for your input i will re adjust and see how it goes. I see alot of people on here using 70/30 perlite coco ratio should i be putting more than 20% perlite in soil too?
Im a newbie grower sorry if it sounds stupid lol

the bloated leaves, yellowing can be from watering too frequently.

I suspect this plant should not need to be watered more than twice a week, maybe less. Water until you get run-off from the bottom, then leave her alone until the soil dries up and her leaves start to droop a tiny bit.

I also think it could be a watering issue that has deprived your plant of nitrogen. Looks like too much water right now. Let it completely dry out before you water again.

Is that pH of your water BEFORE feeding, or is that measured pH of the runoff? If you are using fresh soil you likely don't need to concern yourself with pH at all. Change the watering schedule and I bet she perks right up and is a happy girl.

Thanks for the input ill try this and see what happens, my other plant is slightly older and hasnt had the same symptoms so i think you might be bang on there. Also yes that was the ph before and also it is fresh soil yes.

Opinions likely vary on this, but I'm not joking when I say to leave her alone until the leaves start to droop. Don't panic if you don't check her soon enough and they droop like a deflated balloon, it's very normal and the plant can easily and quickly recover. I'm suggesting this course of action so that you can then LIFT the entire plant and get a good feel of the weight of a fully dry pot. Get a good feel for this in your head then water slowly until you get a decent bit of runoff, then life your plants again and get a feel for the watered weight.

Now wait for the pot to get light again before watering again. You don't need to wait for the leaves to droop every time, that is extreme and only suggested so you have confirmation that the pot and roots have fully dried out, and gives you a "clean" starting point for recovery.
