I thought lockout showed in newest growth first?

I did see a yellow splotch on a leaf this morning that is indicating lock out.

I will take your advice and straight water for a bit. Week 4 of flowering starts on Saturday.
Depends what element! Most show on the fans because that's where the plant is taking what it can't get from the medium!
Iron shows on the new growth. It comes out white!

Dang, so I pruned back for no reason.

Hopefully didn’t stress her two much, it was basically only one that showed the spots.

They only 100w lights which is fuck all!
I'd up both to 100% and lift em to between 24 to 30 inches!
Oh, That’s right leaf tips down means light up.

The manufacturer specs for hanging these lights are out of whack.

It's not about that! What's happening is you have to much N in your soil and it's to wet so your pH is out! Pruning will have nothing to do with ya plants health. It's in a constant state of stress now with an unhealthy root system!
If it was coco or hydro you could just flush the medium but its hot soil so you need to just add water for a bit and the pH should stabilise. All the stuff for the plant to be health is there the plant just can't use it because the pH is out!

I thought I was being conservative at 1/4 strength but using fert every watering was probably the catalyst.

So, go straight water for a couple days….cut almost all nitrogen and continue 1/4 ferts every other watering?

Here are some pictures showing general health. Containers were bone dry so I watered each with eight ounces of water and calmag. (I probably should have used just straight water but it was what I had available this morning)

A few yellowing bottom fan leaves and small streaks, also a few brown spots.

I will take soil ph levels on Saturday before I begin a new feeding schedule.

View attachment 2072147Fox Farm Grow in 4 inch pots
Spider Farmer 1000 light

( OF Soil, Big Bloom, Grow Big, Tiger Bloom, Open Sesame, Beastie Blooms, ChaChing and CalMag)

Three weeks from seed in veg then 12/12.

This is week three in flowering. Two Distinct phenotypes from same seed batch. One short a bushy with close nodes and another with more “stretch”.

No prunning but leaf tucking every watering.

Wish I would have went just a tad bigger on the pot size. Live and learn.
Dope. I've got 10 nl#2 ibl seedlings going from authentic genetics so I'll be watching this one for sure.

When I veg, I veg at 40-50% power. Even with a 100watt light. I also keep it 36 inches above canopy. I think if you dial in the moisture in the air, and get to rolling healthy wet/dry cycles you will be good. Lights def can be an issue at 100% power at 16 inches.
Alright, I will raise lights and let them dry out more between each watering.

Should I trim a few old fan leaves out of the bushier ones to get more light on budding sites?

I was just tucking but now thinking about plucking.

Leave them on while your plant bounces back to full health. Don’t want to add more straw to the camels back if you catch my drift….
Less stress is better at this point ya dig?
Now if there some that are just obtrusive, big snag them tho, other wise give her a week👊🏻

I know my plants are gnome sized but I’m actually in flower right now, about to finish up 3rd week of flower.

This grow was a race to the finish sprout to finish in 10 weeks.

Still lower the power to 70% in flower then. Don’t worry about raising it then.

I keep a solid amount of height between my lights and flowers too. But with that light I would just turn it down a little.
