Rescue a bad cannabis plant
Whether you are a novice grower or a crop that has been growing for many years, you may need to know how to bring a dying plant back to life at some point. Even if you do everything perfectly, plants will struggle. Unfortunately, they are alive and not as predictable as we hope. Plants that you cannot control may have various problems, such as diseases and bugs. Or you messed up because you are a human being, you are in/under water, or doing other things to make your green leaf baby unhappy. Either way, if your plants start to look bad, this is not the end of the world. There are several ways to recover your plants from the brink of extinction.
The first thing you need to do is to bring your plant back to life, and you need to know what went wrong with it. You can learn a lot about the state of plants through leaves. Look at their color and how they sag or curl. From this, you should at least be able to understand the problem. If the leaves turn yellow, it may be under-watering or over-watering. Plants may also be experiencing nutrient burning or nitrogen deficiency. You should also pay attention to the upward curling leaves. Usually, this means that the planting space is too hot for your plants.
You should also pay attention to the stretching of your plants. If the plants look long and long, they may not enjoy the humidity in the room. This can cause the plant to collapse once it blooms. By the same token, if they are not growing fast enough, this may be a sign of a problem. If your plants are underdeveloped, they may need more light, more calcium, or more nutrients. Transferring plants to larger pots can also be a problem.
If you notice white powder or small spots on the leaves, this may be a sign of disease. This may also be an infestation of insects, so please pay attention to the gnawed leaves. If your plants do appear to be diseased or infested, you don’t have much time before your plants can’t help.
If the flower buds look underdeveloped or just smaller than you expected at some point in bloom, then this may also be a sign. These small buds may be caused by pests, too many leaves, or insufficient feeding.
Once you figure out what’s wrong with your plant, it’s time to take action to save it. In many cases, you can save plants by changing some basic aspects of their existence. A good start may be to look at your growth medium. Insects can build nests in the soil, and it may also cause some problems with nutrient deficiency or over-watering. You need to check if you have suitable soil for the job. You don’t want anything too sour or anything that won’t be lost. These can cause root rot and other complications. You can use several different potting soil formulas to bring plants back from the edges. Usually, tidying up the growing medium is a good way to help diseased plants.
If the soil is not a problem, it is most likely your watering plan. Watering or watering plants is easy, and for beginners, this is often the cause of their plants getting sick. It is very important to track the watering time and watering amount of the plants. Keep a watering log so you can go back and analyze the watering schedule and find errors. If you have written down a schedule that doesn’t seem to work, it is much easier to change it and save your plant. If your plant is drooping, yellowing, and does not seem to be growing, it may be watering too much. In order to restore your plant to its original state, you need to make sure that the culture medium drains properly. Put your plant on pebbles or anything else that can support it, and let the water flow down instead of pooling together. Likewise, you should be able to judge whether your plants are submerged due to dry and withered leaves. You can also insert your finger into the growth medium and feel how dry it is. Don’t overcompensate, just increase the amount of watering, because you may have done too much. You should start by watering more than once or twice a week. Continue to test the soil with your fingers to check for moisture.
If this is not your watering or medium, then it may be growing space. If you remember, one of the other major problems with plants is humidity. This, along with temperature, may be the absolute killer of plants. The humidity during the entire growth process should be between 40% and 70%. When your plant is a seedling, it should be higher in this range, lower in nutrition, and lower in flowering. When we talk about temperature, the heat should not be lower than 20 degrees Celsius or higher than 28 degrees. Again, this will vary depending on the stage of the plant, but it will always be within that range. If your humidity and temperature are not within these ranges, then this may be the cause of the problem. Just slowly change the environment to keep it within these boundaries. If your plants have suffered severe heat damage, you may need to use a little air conditioning or bring the plants outside to cool them down. Hope this will give them a new lease of life. The environment also considers pests. Check your plants for any signs of insects. Usually, you can buy plant insecticides or use insects such as ladybirds to kill pests.
