So doobie says get a new PH TDS EC pen.

Stone says Calcium. From the leaf charts and infirmary diagnosis threads I was thinking this might be it. I was feeding cal-mag @ 1/2 strength every feeding according to the FF chart. (2.5ml per gallon)

Homesteader is probably right, I may have overdone it with the calcium and caused lockout?

and Nick could you refer me to a thread on the not PH ing your additives in soil? I believe I may have read one thread from Aqua Man on the subject…
mmm a thread, hopefully @Aqua Man will find that..
it’s pretty known that in “organic” or say a soilless medium like pro mix hp will have ph buffers or living organisms to keep your plant correct but if you start adding chemicals or synthetic nutrients that will kill off or through off the ph buffers and start causing issues and you will need to ph etc every watering/feeding..
basically…

what i see in those pics is a bit of light stress, raise it up 5-10 inches so your leaves are sitting more flat..
the first pic looks like Maybe a light leak coming in at night?, the amount of small round edged leaves?
That’s just the flash from my camera when the lights are off. And thank you kindly everyone for the advice and opinions. I do appreciate it.

GNick, I will raise the hood tonight a bit and see if that helps 👍🏻😎

You gave them too much love bro.trust me we have all been there.
Haha “too much love” 💀 well I sure stepped into it now 💩 hoping to wiggle my way out of this with maybe 5 more weeks to go. Then maybe I’ll do an outdoor grow come spring just to get rid of all these auto seeds.

So for the next feed I was going to do 1/2 strength with the core 3 bottles & beastie bloomz only. That’s 7.5ml BB, 5ml GB, 5ml TB, and .5ml Beastie. Too much?

It was about 20” from the white widow cola before I raised it. See the brown hairs on the pic below… I singed her a bit. 🔥

Now it’s 30” away and I only have maybe 3” left to go up. I am running a 💡 1k hps tho but it’s a cool hood with glass hooked up to a 720cfm 8” in line fan. A bit restricted tho because I pull through a carbon filter, then through the hood, then exhaust into the attic space.

geez that site is terrible..
anyhoo, couldn’t find info on your soluble nutrients, but i’d use the tiger bloom at 4 ml per gallon and the big bloom at 5 ml per gallon.. for a watering or two than you’ll need something with lower np ratios and higher k ratio..
what week are you in again as i’m guessing 4 or 5?

So just to be clear you are saying I should be using a more pure water source. RO water not tap? You are attributing this to high ppm in my tap water?

To me this looks like a deficiency or overage of some sort. The fan leaves are yellowing and becoming crispy on the tips to the point where they are dead.
Autos don't need much to thrive, your killing them with to much love. Once the leaves are damaged they are damaged, no turning back. So it's gonna be hard to tell if and when your on the right track. Gotta inspect the newer leaves or any that are left.

Thanks for the advice GNick, to answer your question I am going into week 5 of flower. Next watering is coming up in a few days time so I’m still playing with what I’m going to feed.

Here are some better examples of the solubles I have to use. I was thinking the beastie bloomz is what the chart calls for and may help bring up that K ratio you speak of. What’s your opinion? Too much P?

On another separate note I do have a RO filter as well as a new Milwaukee meter on the way. Both of these should help me moving forward. These were my choices, I’m excited to put them to use…

Hello Week4, Yeah I’m already regretting that I bought so many auto beans. I have 17 of each Purple Kush and White Widow left. I’m going to need to get some regular feminized genetics on order so I can really get them to bush out. Plus I didn’t realize that when you clone autos they are essentially the same age as the plant you cut from. (Duhh 🤦🏻🤦🏻🤦🏻)

I’m just going to try and get through this round by the skin of my teeth without killing any of them. Then maybe I’ll do a few outdoors come spring time so I can get rid of some of these auto seeds.

Anyways, still plugging along with some sort of lockout/nutrient issue…

just feed with tiger bloom this watering, i’m guessing 5 ml per gallon should be good..
are the leaves laying flat or kinda praying towards it? picture?

yes 5ml/gal of TB sounds right to me. That’s about half strength of that ingredient leaving out all the rest of the bottles. The leaves are curled upward a bit from the main vein and standing up towards the light. (See photos)

So none of the solubles? (Haha I’ve already overdone it haven’t I? 😂)

too me your major issue is the light, mine with healthy girls is over 30 inches from closet top.. it’s never under 30 more like 36 inches..
yes just feed that this watering and we’ll watch and change as we go

Haha I did the same thing. I bought 50 auto flower beans smh. Mostly Mephisto and Nightowl. But I am kinda regretful about it. I did by a 40 pack of Tony's tortured beans GG4 Ril they are photo period. It was a bogo so I only paid for 20.
