I just watered my auto and it’s in the 3rd week of veg and I’m doing good with watering only when dry. My problem is I have just hit a deficiency because I’m using biobizz light mix (I’m not 100% on the exact deficiency but it could be depletion of many nutrients). Anyway, I did fully expected this which is no big deal but I didn’t plan on seeing it the day after I watered. I didn’t add any perlite to the soil so it’s staying moist for a good 5-7 days at this point. So my big question is do I let the deficiency persist until I hit another dry cycle or do I risk adding my nutes now and a light watering just to stop it from getting worse? I don’t want to drown my roots. Other than the leaves starting to turn at the bottom, it’s a super healthy plant with reasonable growth with the blurple light I’m using.

I’m new and I’m pushing my plant for the sake of learning. I would’ve added nutes the last watering but I thought I could go one more cycle. I’m using AN products half strength in my other auto and it’s kicking ass but I started nutes at week 3 and didn’t hit this problem. It’s also a different strain so who knows if the needs are different.

So thoughts and opinions are welcome. Sorry no pics :(

Without the perlite in the soil?
It helps roots breathe, and can prevent the drown, giving proper drainage. Also prevents soil compaction.

No way to answer that without pix. What you describe could be almost anything.
