I have been having an ongoing issue with my plant. The oldest fan leaves turn brown at the tips and get real wrinkly then dry out completely.

At first I thought it was a fungus or something so I removed the affected leaves. The next night MORE leaves were affected. Only the fan leaves and only the tips. This has been going on for 4 of the 5 weeks of the plants life.

It seems to be growing nicely, other than the fan leaf damage.

The soil is FF Happyfrog and I added a gallon of worm castings, a gallon of perlite and 4 tbsp of Earth Dust Base. Oh and I may have added a cup of bone meal. I was pretty high that night.

When the damage first appeared 3 or 4 weeks ago, I immediantly flushed with several gallon jugs of distilled water.

will it eventually use up the excess P (assuming that's what it is from the added cup of bonemeal)

What can I do to tone this soil down? Short of taking a cutting or two and starting over...

Will flowering it trigger more use of the phosphorus?

best course of action would be feed water only,mate you cannot flush soil,you can make mud but you cant flush soil,flushing soil is a process of just feeding to runoff and flushed over time,what your have there is the plant damage from choking the air to roots from the drowning you did,so maintain just ph water,if your using bottle water i wouldnt use distilled ,you will have better luck with ro water.
all that said ,did you cook the soil? how long? at 3 or 4 weeks as you say and the damage from drowning you should just about be at a point were it will stop dropping leaves like that,what i sugest is pressing in on the sides a little to break the soil up a bit were air can get back into the root zone,and best medicne in my opinion to use is epsome salt,1 tbsp to a gallon of phed water at 6.5 it like a asprin,just do it once and wait a couple weeks if it dont clear up then we move on,but you have to give more info on how and what your running,if your feeding nutrients i would stop until it clears up,happy frog had enough nutes to feed your plant for about 3 weeks straight from the bag,then you added all the other stuff,,so welcome the the farmer and hope i could help a bit

I flushed the plant out BECAUSE of the damage. I made my soil way too hot.🔥 I did let it cook for almost a month before planting. And it didn't drop a single leaf. I used distilled water ONLY for the flush...I water with spring water (it measures about 60ppm).

I feed NO nutrients ( except 1/4 tsp of Root Magic per every other water)…water only from seed. I believe my issue is resolved because I have had no further damage. You can read all about it in my grow diary.

I mean I THINK my issue is resolved.🤔 🤷‍♂️


Thanks for the reply though, brother.😎
