Hi folks, so here’s the situation. My plant, for whatever reason, has decided to start sacrificing some leaf tips and other parts and I really don’t know why. However, these problems are manifesting in a manner inconsistent with any other common deficiency. To give some context, I have been feeding this plant every other watering with no issues until last Sunday, when it started showing these issues two days later (on Tuesday). Since then, the issue has slowly but steadily gotten worse and I am at a loss as to what could be going on. I have been feeding it grow big and tiger bloom at 7.5ml/1.5tsp each per gallon every feeding (again feeding every other watering) along with cal-mag and growers recharge every other feeding. Take a look at the images and let me know what you guys think. Thanks so much!

I see no pictures.
No do I see any details of relevance, like soil type, pot size, amounts you are actually feeding, temperature, humidity, pH and EC (both input and runoff). Would also be useful to know the age and history of the plant (seed? clone? problematic youth?)

Leaf tips - mostly I think a burnt leaf tip happens from overfertilizing.

Sure would be nice to see pics.

My apologies, the photos I'm trying to upload don't seem to be actually showing. I'm uploading the photos to the prompt but I'm just getting an error message.

Site issues for the last two days
Ah no wonder. When I upload directly to the text box it throws the error but if I add them to the "Upload Photos" button it doesn't give me an error but still doesn't do anything either. Are imgur links allowed here?

No clue but it can’t hurt to try

I have a heckuva time uploading from my cell phone because the ads cover up what I'm typing, then it's really a pain to upload more than 1 or 2 pictures. I've had problems with the site lately.

The UI is finally showing the preview thumbnails so I think it should hopefully upload this time. Thanks for sticking around! Here's some more details too:

41 Day old from seed
Soil: FFOF
3 Gal Pot
Outdoor
Runoff pH 6.4 (As of yesterday)
Input pH 6.5
7.5ml Tiger Bloom and Grow Big w/ calmag and recharge

This may help you ;
Thanks! I think pushrod might be right, upon a second look at K deficiency on that site I do think it looks to be the most consistent with my problem. In this case would it be better to give it a K supplement or should I go straight for bumping up the tiger bloom?

Fox Farm Trio & Calmag. My general guidelines are to start at half to quarter dose nutes based on the dosages listed on the feeding schedule.
