I think the two Mountain Jam #3 girls I have going are now on the mend, after a few bumps along the way. A soil additive resulted in an acidic medium, with more extra N than I had intended - due to the miscalculations of this stoner—DUH! I am sure the clawing is mostly due to the extra N as I have the pH balanced now, but the bigger of the two with the more pronounced clawing was also nearly root-bound, and needing to be watered every day, which may factor in.
Today they were both cleaned up and up-potted into 3g containers (without the additive, lol). I topped the bigger of the two. I imagine I will come to regret the extra veg time when SS’s influence shows up in flower with crazy stretch... but timelines left little choice. Hopefully they take nicely to their new pots.
As of now I have my eye more on the smaller one (#2), not just because it has clawed less and overall looks better, but because it smells better too!
Post cleanup and transplant:
I’ll be back with a progress report when they’re a good three to four weeks into flower.
