Hey all,
Just turned my lights to 12/12 yesterday and noticing some progression in a problem. I corrected a PH issue a couple weeks back and thought the effects were lingering but it seems to me I'm battling possible two issues. Mag def? Nitrogen tox?

Week 1 day 1 flower, using Fox Farm nutrients in soil. I just started adding cal-mag to their diet last week though, I thought I didnt have to because of using PHd tap water. For a while I was using the FF line without the flower kiss (foliar feed,) wholly mackerel, and kelpmekelpyou. Am I seeing the deficiency from not using those products the entire time? I was poor lol

I have a small window to either feed them fully or just water+calmag.....what is everyone's suggestion?? I have two opinions from grower friends and one says mag def and other says nitrogen tox...

Just water cal mag. Seems like you posted pics of a few different plants, the top one to me looks like old damage or possible insect or light burn(possibly spraying them with lights on). Next two clear sign of N toxicity and possibly hungry for some P. Third one looks strange but the lighting is throwing a proper visual diagnosis off. Final picture same as the first.
Did you spray with the lights on? What does the entire plants look like? First and last one, do they have this symptom all over or just on that leaf, and how long has it been like that? Is it progressing and where did it start? Middle two, have they always been that dark?
Whats the FF feed your doing and at what PPM? Grow big i assume?
How did you test your soils PH? Do you have a PH tester? A run off test will tell your PH

Thanks for your reply:

Yes different plants, different problems. Same feeding lol

I did spray with lights on - I will not do that anymore. What's procedure for that? In my veg im on 24 hours so they don't have a time without light. I can spray the flower tent after lights go out?

I will advise today with pictures updates when they wake up at 7pm tonight

A lotta folk run shorter lights on for veg, cuz A; its not needed plants like people need sleep and B; save power. 18/6 16/8 even 14/10.
You have the ability to control how much your feeding, plants need individual feed cycles. When you spray with lights on the water droplets refract the light burning little holes/spots onto the leaves.
What are you spraying and how often? Why?
