Curling leaves

by ronfauvist77 about September 12, 2017 - report

My current AK48 grow has just entered the flowering stage. It has huge Indica fan leaves some of which have curling leaflets. Should those fan leaves be removed?

I am growing indoors in a ventilated tent, in soil in pots, HPS on 12 and 12, feeding Tiger Bloom occasionally.

    You need to provide more info on your setup and show some photos of your plant. Otherwise you'll get incorrect info.

      If I recall when I grew AK-48 it took very little to curl the leaves..They always recovered...I don't recommend removal until I can see what you are talking about..

      Go back to your post.. in the right hand corner there is a Edit ability.. press that.. then look all the way to the bottom here it says post image. ... press browse when it shows up and download it from your computer or phone .. just wait for it to load ...  more

    If leaves are cupping downward.. it is most probably too much nutrient.. if it is curling up at edges of the leaves.. it is too much heat.. usually too close to the light .... or you need to vent the hot air .

    Looks like some over watering, as well.

    A natural light photo would have been much better but I lean toward over watering and perhaps too much nutes.I can't really tell from this photo about the nutes,but we as growers have a tendency to love our plants too much giving to mush food and sometimes drowning them..I always error to the dry side and its not failed me yet....

    One useful tip on learning when it's time to water is to lift your pots. Lift them when you've filled them before watering. That's the dry weight. Add water and lift. That's the saturated weight. When your plant needs water it will be way closer to the dry weight.

    Another thing that can cause leaves curling down his windburn if your van is pointed directly at the area where the leaves are curling down this could be the cause.
