Glad you found the problem, I had exactly the same one last grow with Zamaldelica x KC, didn't like the liquid KB, caused calcium deficiency. It actually started finishing my plants very early, probably halved yield. Good eye to figure it out, it took me a while to drop the supplements. Dubi said they can cause hormonal changes that are unwelcome in the sativas. Glad you're enjoying the Malawi's grow styles, mine are still vegging

Hi Texicwaste,

The damage in the leaf could be a 'copperish' fungus, but most probably was caused due to spraying with something that was too agressive (or not used in correct amounts).

I'm glad you found out the reason of the problem and that your Malawis are starting to fatten up quickly, you can expect a huge flower production on your Malawis in the upcoming month if you provide them enough light intesity and proper feeding.

Best wishes!

Thanks dubi, I have not been spraying at all. I believe it is the 0-10-10 I threw on them. Since I changed and flushed, they have jumped. My bug traps are clear, but I will keep a watchful eye for any signs of fungus like symptoms. I increased the nutes up to about 1.6-1.8 ec. They are done with stretch, so I have been rearranging the lights to really blast them. I always will post something i see that i have doubts about to get the best advice as quickly as possible here, such a great forum. I have never had a breeder work so closely with their growers like you, what a treat. I do have a question tho, on your thread you mentioned that your ph was around 6.2-6.4, right? You are in coco, worm castings and peat mix, but I am in coco/pearlite mix, shouldn't my ph be around 5.8? Any coco mix advice from you is appreciated. Maybe a ph issue is to blame?

Tw666, Greetings Glad you are thru the troubles and I second you for thanking Dubi for his great devotion to all his plants , their seeds and their new homes. Total livication to the Breeding of Cannabis. Heart Salute! Big respect in every aspect. Yes Coco PH is 5.8 usually upto 6.1 I find safe so far.
Hope to see how your grow develops. Mine are just in the SCROG now. Long wait ahead..
Happy growing

proper feeding Malawi, very important, please read if you are new to growing Malawi

I know exactly what was going on with the leaves now. My run off was waaay higher than what I was putting in (* I was putting in 850 ppm the last two days, and the runoff was 1230 ppm), so that means I had a lockout. I will not feed over 1.4 ec, as that is the cut off point for me. I did a check of ppm in and runoff these last days and have come to this conclusion. The ppm pens are all different, and some are set to 500 ppm as 1.0 ec (USA) and some are set to 700 ppm as 1.0 ec (Europe,Canada I believe). I just got a Blue Lab wand that shows both, and that set me right. Botanicare and AN and GH use the 700 ppm scale, Canna uses the 500 scale. Be careful these plants are more sensitive to nute changes than I thought. The Chem was not affected like the Malawi as it is a 9 week plant. Take any advice you want, but I will not go over 1.4 ec which on my Blue Lab pen is about 980 ppm, and I am growing in coco. For other grow mediums this may all be irrelevant. So for everyone who does not have an expensive reader for ec, here is the breakdown. Blue lab pen = 500 ppm as 1.0 ec, and that equals 700 ppm on 700 scale. 600 ppm on 500 scale equals 840 ppm on the 700 scale, or 1.2 ec, 700 ppm on the 500 scale equals 980 ppm on 700 scale or 1.4 ec, 800 ppm on the 500 scale equals 1120 ppm on the 700 scale, or 1.6 ec, 1000 ppm on the 500 scale is equal to 1400 ppm on 700 scale , or 2.0. If you are reading over that you are way, way too high. So, always make sure of what the nutrient manufacturer uses for their scale, and measure accordingly. This is absolutely the most important lesson I have learned from the leaf incident, even though to most of you out there it is probably a no brainer. My poor plants suffered for my mistake in reading ec on my ppm pen. Remember, Blue Lab is 500 scale in the USA, 700 in Canada and Europe. I was thinking 850 was 1.2 ec, when it was really 1.6, so when I upped the nutes to 1050, I was at 2.1 ec and thought I was at 1.5 ec. You have to buy the expensive wand ( cost me a lot of dough) to get both scales as the Blue Lab pen just shows ppm on the 500 ( make sure the pen says what scale it uses or contact the manufacturer), and that is where it gets you. It can be deadly if you don't get the ppm right. Lucky the Malawi are so strong, and they are recovering fast and just growing like mad. I caught this in time. Wow, my bad.

Cool added 90w red ufo led

I added a 90w ufo for shits and giggles to see if it does anything. It can't hurt I suppose, but the Malawi have forgiven me my transgressions to them and are going strong. Lots of big buds, but they are getting heavy and will need support. I will use twine and tie them so their own weight holds them up like I have been doing and I can always hang some twine from above. All is well. the chem will be coming in after another 2 or three weeks. it did not produce as much as I hoped but it got light blocked. Big deal, this is a Malawi grow anyways, and is shaping up to be an outstanding yield. I will post some new pics this week which is start of week 8 of 12/12.

Malawi Update new pics

Here's some pics with the lights off, these buds are huge, but it is dark so you can't really get the scale of these buds, there are so many and they are big. The Chem is nothing but crystals. The Malawi are so sticky your hands get gummy. The color is really coming out in the buds.

those in the back that are skinny are really just some shoots that came up and turned into buds and are still developing, so I'm letting them go.

I will take some better pics tonight when the lights come on,even after suffering leaf damage from my attempt to kill them by overfeeding, they have bounced back gloriously. Still there is six more weeks on the Malawi, and at least three on the Chem. This is day 1 of week 8 of 12/12

six more weeks to go
