So I'm on week 4 of flower. This happens to me every time around this point. After the stretch the lower fan leaves start fading and this process usually continues throughout the rest of flower.

I'm growing in one gallon fabric pots in fox farm Happy frog soil, modified with dolomite lime. My last feeding was 3 or 4 days ago at about 1400 PPM. I'm using general hydroponics 3 part flora series.

pH seems to be okay. Run off ppms is around 2,400.

How can I keep my plants healthy throughout the grow? What am I doing wrong?

On a related note, when do you clip fading fan leaves? I've been leaving leaving them on because I feel like if I take them off then the leaves above them will just start fading.

Curious to know what other people's thoughts are as far as trimming fading leaves.

If you plant ice, you're gonna harvest wind.

I leave my fading leaves. I get a better idea of how the plant is progressing. Besides, it's obvious the plant is pulling from them. Why not let it finish before moving on to newer foliage? That said, four weeks is a little early for a fade. You may have different issues.

Yeah that's what I'm thinking. This happens to me every time.

I'm not an expert by any means and I don't feed a chem/salt line but it looks to me like you might just want to push N for another week or so. When I get a fade it generally starts closer to week 6.
