Need advice as to what I am doing wrong, second grow 5 gallon fabric pots feeding cal-mag 3ml per gallon, General hydroponic Nova Grow 2ml per gallon, water ph'd between 6.0 and 6.5 in ff soil.
Last grow used 7 gallon plastic pots had it dialed water every 3 days thus time I water every 2 days
5 gallons between 6 plants each wstering.

That last pic also kind of looks like molybdenum. Not that you would add molybdenum, but if pH is low it could be locked out.

Seem like a potassium deficiency, overwatering and overfeeding... what are your runoff ph and ppm?
Ppm is around 448 and ph run off when I check is 6.8 sometimes 6.5
Drop the cal mag ppms to 1 ml per gallon and that's only if floranova grow doesn't have any but I think it does. If so drop the cal mag period. Phosphorus is locking out
Ok I will try that, thank you very much for the info, I just can't figure it out.

6.8 is a little high, you want to aim 6.2, maybe flush with ph’d water ´ and verify run off till you get a good Ph. And watering, make sure it’s dry 1-2 inch on top before rewatering on your watering schedule... more the pot is big, more it should be dry on top to be sure.. it may differ between plant. Ppm should be a little more then that, they probably are hungry... are they all different genetic?

Yes, different genetics two gorilla glue x zkittles, two fruit punch, and two ice cream cakes
It is pretty hot in the 4 x 4 temp when lights are on is around 87 degrees so they dry out pretty fast I usually ph at 6.2 when feeding but when I check run off it is a bit higher don't know if that's normal.
When I water they a definitely dry pots light and leaves drooping am I waiting to long to water it's usuly every 2 days with the fabric pot and withe heat and fans they dry out quick.

87 is really high mate, I personnaly don’t like anything over 78 at worse. I like keeping it 75-73. Different genetics mean different taking care of, it has to be taken into account that some may be more resistant then other, vice versa. I like multiple genetics grow for the personal experience gain over growing 1-2 strain... but, it’s more hard to figure when an issue happen, some plants react less and some more. If you change something, it might affect the one that are fine and still yet don’t see result on the one you wanted to fix. You have to get a log of witch strain suits you better for your environnement for future personal reference! The PH shouldn’t change that much, except , PH change with the temperature, so if you put water at 64f and it goes out at 78f, it could explain the rise, you need to counter balance this effect by adding water at good temperature. If within the same temperature you change .2 .3, it could be a PH lockdown and need to be look into. Sometime the meter need a little calibration too. First fix your environnement temperature, second, flush and watch for PH change. You have time to fix before flowering, but 6 plant in 4x4, they are gonna double size in flower so maybe you want to clear a little space in there ( defoliation ) it’s gonna help them breathe a little :p good luck mate

Thank you for the advice, I water just now ph going in at 6.0 ph run off at 6.2 and ppm going at 853 run off was at 1083 on one the rest was 950 range. Should I water with ph water the next watering?

If the runoff is higher then what’s going it, it’s a little worrying. Hopefully, not a nutrients lockdown.... if so, you may need to flush them. Is that the plant showing deficiency? I personnaly flush with tap water, I know it’s not ph’d, but that I can fix it at the end with ph’d water. Sometimes nutrients create salt builtup, flushing will help get rid of the extra. It’s also a way to start fresh if your unsure. You should always ph your water, best 6.2 veg and 5.8 flower is the aim, that’s the best efficiency for the nutrients uptake!
