I checked my plant just now and found this.
It was only on a single leaf so I don't think I'm too bad off.



It looks a lot like calcium deciciency that Joe's fresh thread shows.



I might have to wait 2 weeks or more to get my cal-mag so I crushed up a Rolaids, shook it up in a water bottle and poured it in.
(200 mg of elemental calcium)





It didn't really dissolve but I figure it will be available to the plant slowly.

I decided to buy some.




Maybe next, I can stop using Miracle Grow soil. lol

I think your problem from the start was using the miracle grow...!!!...
next run go the route that Scrappy doo said to do about getting some organic super soil or mix up a batch yourself...

I always had similar problems like that when I was using salt based nutrition... it just seems to me that we are force feeding the plants when we feed them with salts... “I’m probably wrong about that though” ...!!!...

daily dosage between humans and plants are nowhere near the same.
definitely don't want to duplicate dosage intended for human consumption..

you have the magnesium and calcium in your molasses already that you use.
could you make a tea of one teaspoon molasses in a gallon of water and foliar feed?
good luck

I did make up a soil mixture (I don't know if it's "super" or not ??)

My last grow was a bust so I'm starting over.

I got some Miracle Grow potting soil, 5 litres of pearlite, 5 litres of vermiculite and some garden lime.

I started with a Coleman cooler and put some clay pellets at the bottom then covered them with fiberglass weave for drainage.

Then I put a bubbler through to the bottom and filled it with the potting soil mixture.

I dug out the middle and filled it with un-nuted potting mix in an attempt to not burn my sprouted seed/seedling.

I tend to kill plants if I transplant so I planted my sprouted seed right in the cooler.

I have a 1" tube running to the bottom to drain off the run off.
I don't want to have a drain hole in the cooler for fear of leaks.

I also put about 1/2 gallon of soil from my last batch in the mix.
It includes springtails and soil mites as part of my micro herd.



I read this too from Joe's fresh thread.



I did have a water shortage.
I was gone for a week and the plant got really dried out.

I took your advice and bought some MaxiGrow too.

It's got everything in it including calcium magnesiun and iron.



Too bad I just spent $38 for CalMag that I no longer need.

Does anyone know if my Miracle Grow potting mix (with extra perlite and vermiculite) is considered to be a "soil" or "soilless" grow medium ??

I'm wondering what kind of PH to aim for.

My plant seems happy now but I'm wondering if I should expect the light green in the leaves to darken up or if they will stay that way ?

Should I focus on the new growth ?
Should the new leaves grow in dark green right from the start ?

Thanks I'll try that.

It turned out that I over watered again.
My lower leaves were curling under, the upper leaves were pale and the runoff smelt like sewage.

Thanks to Joe's Fresh thread agian, I saw pictures of over watering.
This is from his thread.


I have'nt watered in 4 days now and the soil is still damp.

I'm pretty sure I started off with a Cal/Mag deficiency then I over watered.

Magnesium deficiency looks a lot like over watering to me.
