I just recently transplanted my plants from clear 16oz solo cups inside my room in my window sill, to 1 gallon black growbags outdoors in my back yard. I think I gave them a little bit of a temperature shock doing this.
The lower, but younger, leaves on some of my plants are starting to yellow a bit. I thought this was a nutrient problem, so even though I had just put them into fresh soil, I purchased some FF Grow Big and gave them some food. The problem has continued and more of my plants are slowly yellowing.
This is the worst of them and the tips have started browning on this. The PH is fine at 6.8 for this plant, it was recently fed with FF Grow Big, and if anything has been over watered.
The problem I am more concerned with though is that most of the plants have lost their vigor. They aren't growing as fast as they were, they aren't as plump and they are starting to "curl" up on the edges.
This plant shows the symptom more then the others. It is small, looks like its growth has been seriously stunted, and the leaves are doing this sort of crumple thing around their edges. The other plants all have these to a degree but this is the worst one.
I have scoured the internet and these forums for what it might be and I have found nothing. Each problem fits a certain causes on some parts, but has others that contradict that.
The first looks like a nitrogen deficiency from what I can tell, but is affect the new leaves first not the older ones. Or at least the lower ones which happen to be new during their stage of growth.
The bigger problem looks similar to some nutrient deficiencies, but lacks other symptoms related to them, as well as showing some symptoms of TMV but without any chlorophyll discoloration.
Someone please tell me its just a little shock and they arent infected with the Tobacco Mosaic Virus. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.
