- Nutrient lockout is caused by nutrient buildup around a plant’s roots, or by pH imbalances, and prevents them from absorbing available nutrients.
- Nutrient lockout leads to nutrient deficiencies, which can cause yellowing foliage, burnt leaf tips, irregular leaf shape and size, and brown spots. Symptoms vary depending on which nutrients your plant is missing.
- Typically treated with a flush, pH checks, and nutrient adjustments.
- Overfeeding with chemical fertilisers and boosters can burn your plants.
- The highly concentrated nature of chemical fertilisers means novice growers can easily end up overfeeding their plants.
- Telltale signs of overfeeding include dry, burnt-looking leaves with yellow or brown discolouration, burnt edges, and upward bent tips.
- Rookie growers often end up buying more supplements in an effort to remedy existing nutrient problems, which only makes matters worse.
- Overfeeding needs to be treated quickly with a root flush, pH stabilisation, and a new feeding schedule.
