Salvia Divinorum Dark spots on leaves
Posted 16 April 2006 - 11:10 AM
Too Much Water, Too Cold, not humid enough?

are you useing high output lights? like a hps or mh? or are you just useing sunlight?
when water falls on a leaf and is cought under a high output light it can cause the leaf to burn, like sunbleached only through a water microscope.
could just be the plant fending off too much nutes. idk really.
but i would advise NOT tearing off that part of the leaf. let us know what happens...

BTW i plan on moving them out doors in a couple of weeks, would four or five hours of direct sunlight be to much or not enough.

The spots I'm getting are just like dryish spots. Sorta looks like mold, but dry, nothing really bad there. I've had some lose a few leaves, but they're all getting new growth on them. I also checked for bugs, nutting...
I'm not misting my plants at all, are any of you misting the leaves? What sorta humidity levels? Maybe they're drying out slightly at those spots gearing up for spring/summer growth? Really not sure, but I have similar happening.

Perhaps these are all trying to shoot out new roots and new growth (I mean, cuttings, well definately!) and are lacking in P?
Not sure, but just thowing a theory out there.

New leaf growth doing ok, just a few of the older ones getting these spots...

without a community of people who know how to properly grow salvia your not going to really get a straight anwser. just gotta try the most obvious thing and see if it works or not.
where did you get seeds?

plenty here know how to grow sally.
where did you get seeds?
you seem to be the one without knowledge of sally,
else you'd know
there's no such thing as viable sally seeds.
i know you are trying to be helpful
if you lack expertise
please refrain from just tossing out
the first idea that enters your mind.
let others who know speak,
while you watch, listen and learn.

but you would not listen.

Nope, no insects on the leaves, I just checked with a magnifying glass. It must be due to some enviromental issue such as stress, temp, humidity, or over/under water.
Inspected mine with a 30x scope, no visable bugs either... hmm
I was having issues with my tap water and chlorine. I dunno why, but in the past month or two, it just is terrible. I had posted a thread/post about letting my water sit now before using it on anything like rooting cuttings etc. I won't even drink water from the tap anymore without filtering it. Never used to be a problem at all. I'm wondering if this chlorine boost in the tap water could lead to causing these burns on the leaves? Since I've been letting the water sit and the chlorine smell evap, no more problems, strong root growth, etc. Dunno if they're related or just coincidences though.
Are you using tap water or bottled water or filtered water to water these? Anyone... These should be in diff parts of the country if I recall, so water shouldn't be the same all over I would think...
