Hey guys, im surprised something like this hasn't been posted before but better late than never. I know i don't make policy around here, but i would think everyone will agree with me on this.

It's very hard to diagnose a plant when you don't have all the information at your finger tips. If you fill this out i promise we will be better and faster at telling you what your plant's problem is.

(i got this list from gardenscure.com)

Soil Growers:
1. Are you growing from seed or clones?
2. How old are your plants?
3. How tall are your plants?
4. What size containers are they planted in?
5. What is your soil mix?
6. How often do you water and what type of water do you use?
7. What is the pH of your water?
8. What kind of fertilizer do you use and what is its NPK ratio?
9. Do you foliar feed or spray your plants with anything?
10. What kind of lights do you use and how many watts combined? (HPS, MH, fluorescent, halogen, incandescent "plant lights")
11. How close are your lights to the plants?
12. What size is your grow space in square feet?
13. What is the temperature and humidity in your grow space?
14. What is the pH of the soil?
15. Have you noticed any insect activity in your grow space?
16. How much experience do you have growing?

Hydro Growers:
1. Are you growing from seed or clones?
2. How old are your plants?
3. How tall are your plants?
4. What type of hydro system are you using?
5. What brand/type of nutrients are you using?
6. What is the Ph of your nutrient solution?
7. What is the PPM/EC of your tap water?
8. What is the PPM/EC of your nutrient solution?
9. What is the temperature of your nutrient solution?
10. Does your PPM/EC show a rise or fall when you do your daily PPM check?
11. Does your pH show a rise or fall when you do your daily check?
12. Do you foliar feed or spray your plants with anything?
13. What kind of lights do you use and how many watts combined? (HPS, MH, fluorescent, halogen, incandescent "plant lights")
14. How close are your lights to the plants?
15. What size is your grow space in square feet?
16. What is the temperature and humidity in your grow space?
17. Have you noticed any insect activity in your grow space?
18. How much experience do you have growing?

Haven't seen mace around for a minute. However, I'm bumping this thread instead of creating yet another sticky for the Cannabis Infirmary. I'd like to make a request that posters also give a hint of what's going on in their thread titles instead of stuff like "I don't know what's going on! HELP!!!!" That's a useless thread title. Help US help YOU.

:D

No worries. I think im just gonna delete this post and the account. The site is a little ridiculous and not helpful. Instead of being helpful the people on here are douche bags. Get off your high and mighty stool. “Help us help you” DOUCHE BAG! What about it could be this or could that we are not sure and ask for some info. This is a community you guys are not fucking experts don’t act like it
The post was written to help new ppl understand what information is needed to diagnose issues. This information at a minimum is required. Unless you just want bullshit guesses that don't solve the issue(s). If you want some magical answer you may be better off with a replica Harry Potter wand.
I would guess your seeing some not so favorable replies because of your inability to give that information.

See ya later

I THOUGHT THE EXACT SAME THING ON 420 MAGAZINE FORUIMS , I GREW WITH HIDs BUT AFTER GETTING ON HERE WITH THESE LEDs DON'T WORK FOR ME TOO WEAK COMPARED TO HIDs , funny I should say this but after 3 months under the HIDs to the LEDs, THE DIFFERENCE IS BETWEEN NIGHT & DAY, 3 MONTHS UNDER a big enough bulb to cover the small closet it was around 4 x4 , using a 400 watt MH for vegetation & had 1 HPS mine was 2.5 feet the branches were stronger & stockier, in my experience , the only thing I can say don't look for help on here , go on here for only reference purposes , don't take it to heart when others reply b/c it can lead to disastrous results , a guy had his house burned down by electrical currents with LEDs LEDS ? nNOT MH & hps , BUT THEY'RE JUST AS RISKY DRAWING OUT EXTREME POWER I HAVE 2 20 AMP ROOMS IN MY HOUSE I AM USING FOR THE 4 X 4 TENT IT'S TAKING EVERY AMP OUT OF THOSE 2 ROOMS WITH THE LIGHT A sf 2000 A HEATING PAD THE FANS THE CARBON FILTER ADDED ANOTTHER SF 2000 FOR THE OTHER SIDE, STILL NOT STOCKY , BACK IN THE 90S I HAD 3 PLANTS I WAS VERY PROUD OF BIG HAIRY & STOCK, I'm talking the plant's itself they were big enough to hold their own with nothing helping, now there's a difference? has anyone else noticed growing in the 90s?
here are the 3 after 3 months using LEDs they were A LOT bigger than these after 3 months under HIDs

I absolutely agree that’s usually how I got about it helping to diagnose the possible causes of what I can physically see on the plants than asking a series of questions like you’ve so graciously listed.
