I've been growing organically this whole time. I use Foxfire soil which turned out to be great & I decided to add nutrients. Although; I did not use my normal compost tea because I didn't have any.. I used Fox Farms Tiger Bloom which is organic :/ the next day I found MK like this. Everything looks great except for three leaves. I water/feed early in the morning (when top inch is dry)

and I keep my plant in a greenhouse the whole day. She is 3 months old & my first one. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong in the process? Thank you in advance!!💚

There are some tiny spots on the leaves that may be some kind of bug that you need to address. It might be worthwhile to repost some close-ups of those spots.
I agree.

You should not mix organic and non. It causes issues.

Ok. Organics is not adding nutes per say. It's more how they are added that makes the difference because in the final forms, they are all the same.
When you add nutrients to organic soil, you are double feeding. This forces you to manually adjust pH and a whole host of other issues.
When you grow in an 'organic' soil, make sure it has all the MBE's (microbes, bacteria, enzymes) the grow will need. Those are what convert the soil to food. That's what happens outside in the vegetable garden. Occasionally, the soil gets worn out because we fail to care for it. Living soil is just that, alive. Adding other stuff complicates something very simple.

You have to choose on how you want to grow because that will affect what and how you feed.

I would also suggest some close up pictures (use a microscope) of the white spots on both sides of the leaves.
Something like this:

So the spots are either thrips or could be a calcium deficiency. If you've been adding calcium to your water it is probably thrips.. Dr. Zymes or cold press neem oil with Dr Bonner's soap mix. Will be an organic way of dealing with the thrips.

Surely not thrips

Soil is alive. And you add amendments.
ProMix looks like soil. But is a hydroponic media. Uses bottled foods. Similar but very different.
