I have been battling this yellow leaf issue and have finally figured out why. 5.3 ph. I have my water delivered and this was never an issue last year. The water is different. I'll have a fire tonight and fix the water ph with wood ash. I'll add it to the bulk tank and not worry about it. I will have to make a decent amount of ash to continually correct the PH. On a positive note, this will make the crop go in overdrive. It will supply much needed K for heat stress and will open up all nutrients for the plant. I'm actually excited about this.

After giving the plants everything I had to throw at them, they are greening up today. Once I fix the water, things should go back to smooth sailing

Day 26:
I foliar fed last night and added BT and Chelated Iron/Cal mag. Then I made a strong compost tea and added 1.5 gallons of Og Biowar bio brew. It's weak for Biowar but is still probably stronger diluted than other similar products. I'm hoping to see some good results in about 2 or 3 days.

The super silver haze X Sour diesel is coming along nicely. All sativa looking plants in the garden are this cross. I plant structure varies a little, but the bud structure and terpenes are different across the lot. There are some really frosty phenos early on.

Everything except one plant is recovering and greening up again.

I'm hoping this is due to some kind of bad mixing in the soil or something simple and not fusarium again. It could be due to a creeping PH, but it's a little early for that. Let's see what happens.

Fire OG. I took clones of this one. Stacking super fast. It's coated in resin and smells like sweet pine sol. Definitely not the original, but a nice plant for sure.

Garlic budder. Maybe another week or 2 at most and this will get the chop. This is part of a tester batch of plants I put in the garden. I used Phenomenal flowers soil mix and randomly gave it compost tea. I'll give it a good dose of FPJ and hope it kicks out more purple before harvest.

Roxanne or blood honey. 3 days with rain has turned the pistils brown. Still pushing out new blooms.

I'm not sure what strain this is. I noticed 3 different clones in my purple punch batch. I planted them together. Not much smell yet, but the calyx to leaf ratio is insane on this one

The plague for weed in Thailand. I've been finding small bite areas on a couple of plants in the garden. This pest will destroy your crop in a matter of days. Last year I learned for the first time about this pest. It cost me a lot of time and mouldy buds in the end. BT is your friend and is your BEST friend while growing in Thailand.
You'll notice that the worm has eaten in 3 different spots on the leaf. When I found him, he wasn't moving much. Once they eat, the bacteria starts to kill them pretty quickly.
BT isn't as effective against the bigger worms for some reason so you have to stay vigilant and always look for worm turds on the small leaves on the buds. I'll try to get a picture so people understand what to look for.
I'm not worried about the worms at this point as I sprayed BT a couple of days ago. I found 2 large worms 2 weeks ago and have only found babies after.

Garlic budder. I have had some bad luck so far with this one. Stem rot likes it. The buds turn purple even in 90+ degrees heat every day. She's a Long finisher and that poses its own problems. It seems with the indicas the shorter life span is is good for small runs and plants. If you try to grow huge bushes, the odds of problems arising goes up drastically.

Day 14.
Things are once again coming along nicely. Ignore the little purple punch clones. They've had some life issues.

i haven't had much time for posting as I've been harvesting, dealing with bud worms and building a greenhouse.

I’m going to be growing small in Chiang Mai. What is BT? I badly want to grow outdoors if possible.
