Grow Cannabis – Nitrogen Excess

Nitrogen Excess can have a lasting health effect on your cannabis plant. You must be able to recognize the symptoms of nitrogen toxicity, to ensure the best harvest possible.

Nitrogen is an important element of plant growth. The plant will take it from the medium, and use to build stems, branches, and leaves. It is also a major component in photosynthesis. Without it, your plant will no be able to make chlorophyll, which means, it will not eat.

Even though nitrogen is an important element, too much of it can cause health problems in your plants. If these problems are not fixed before the flowering cycle, your plant will struggle to build flowers, or the flowers will be airy and less dense.

With an excess of nitrogen the plant wants to work hard building foliage, and stems, as this is what the plant uses it for. The more nitrogen it has, the more it will try and grow leaves and stems, rather than flowers. Your plant will grow quickly, but it will be weak and spindly.

Grow Cannabis – Potassium Excess

Potassium is the “K” in your N/P/K Ratio. Like Nitrogen and Phosphorous, it is known as a “Macronutrient”, and is one of the three main elements needed in plant growth. Here we will discuss Potassium Excess, this is when your plant has too much Potassium.

Potassium helps the pores of the plant open and close, which essentially, allows it to sweat and breathe. It is also responsible for the production of many enzymes the plant needs to grow. Without it, the plant would not be able to produce the starches needed for photosynthesis.

Too much potassium can cause the plant to have “lockout”. This will stop the plant from eating other vital elements, and other deficiencies will soon show. If not solved quickly, it can have a lasting effect on your harvest.

Because Potassium excess will cause lock out of other nutrients, it can be wrongly diagnosed. Look at out for the top leaves growing thin blades. Middle leaves will develop burn around their tips. Flowering will be slow to start, and flower growth will be diminished.

How to fix a potassium excess will depend on the medium you are growing in. It can be as simple as flushing your medium, or, if growing outdoors, you may have to plant crops that will eat a lot of K. This will make sure whatever is in your soil will be eaten faster.

  1. I wonder if you can help me here…I have a few clones that are starting to show signs of nutrient overdose…not sure which nutrient, but I think I should flush them before transplanting into new soil mixture in grow bags. What soil mixture would you recommend for transplanting these clones? Should I mix in some bat guano? Thanks.

    1. Soil is usually too strong for cuttings mate, try using rockwool, or coco, and when roots are formed, you can move them to soil. Soil has a lot of nutrients in it you see, and small plants and cutting, its mate be too much for them. Sign up to the forum mate, and we can get you on the right track 🙂
