1st real problem, 3 wks into flower. Ffhf soil. 2-300w leds. Brown spots on about 4-6 leaves on ac/dc. I think auto, 'cuzz it flowered on it's own. Supposed to have been photo but that's water under the bridge at this point. All affected leaves at same height. I suspect light burn. Whadaya think ? 12-16" from light. What's throwing me off is obviously a severe lack of experience !!!!!! A total lack of communication !!!! The bud above the burned/affected leaves doesn't show any issues. Shouldn't that top area be showing light stress if indeed it is the light? I tied it back, again, just to see if my hunch is correct. Other ac/dc and white widow look fine except for very slightly brown tips on white widow. Pretty sure that's me pushing just a tad too hard on the nutes. It's definitely not overwatered.

Ac/dc. Write up from seed co. Says 50/50. Also says to go easy on nutes. Susceptible to nute burn.

I should add that i recently got a dehumidifier for tent. Rh was high, now 40-50 %. Was 60-70.

the distribution of the spots look like pest issues to me. scope the leafs. the collapsing of the cells like that in nonuniform fashion isn't indicative of a nutrient issue ime, especially with how healthy they look otherwise. could be a consequence of the transition to lower rh as well. but definitely scope the underside of those leafs.

I have to lean toward pest too, at first I thought cal, TBH.

I think the op would be well advised to give us some better more "in focus" leaf shots, if possible of the actual damage.
The stippling is apparent, but it's not as obvious or advanced as I would normally anticipate.

Check the undersides, post pics of them if possible also, and good shots of the tops.
Please post some more pics.

Noob here don’t mites attack the veins of the leaf also are you referring to a gnat infestation where they attack the roots and show tell take signs above soil??

According to the graph arnt his numbers in the danger zone

Definitely Doesn't look like gnats to me , more like mites but the only way to see if it mites from a picture would be to get a picture of the underside of the leaf as this is where they lay eggs. Neem , I would also go a little bit weaker on the nutrients but only slightly .

It all depends on leaf temp and stage of growth. Don't use online charts they are garbage and will more than likely be quite a bit off.

Here is an explanation and below is a calculator for VPD leaf temps are absolutely crucial in using VPD.

Ok got some more pics. It does look like something has been eating on a couple edges. Has not spread at all that i can see. 3-5 leaves effected, that's all. My new magnifing glass is garbage. Not nearly strong enough. There might be some tiny, and i mean tiny, white spots/possibly bugs on a few leaves. Zooming in with camera makes it look like lint. No bugs/pests that i can see with naked eye. Red "ball" by tip of pen looks like lint off of strings i am using to tie branches. Good pic of under a leaf. I've got some insecticidal super soap, made by Bonide, and some Capt. Jack's deadbug brew, also made by Bonide, on standby just in case one of em is what i need. I won't apply anything till i hear back from ya'll. Thanks for helping me. 4 weeks into flower, buds gaining size nicely, I'd hate to lose them now!!!!!
