I've got 2 tents going right now. 9 plants total. I frequently find myself mixing different nute strengths based on plant responses. I've got 2 early skunk, and 2 shiskaberries, and then 5 different strains (one plant each). It's pretty common practice to alter feeding schedules based on plant responses.Will do! This time watered with plain water, next time gonna do 50% of recommended nutes and see how plant responds.
Would've been really surprised if my first grow went perfect :D Should I remove affected big fan leaves that are in the bottom of the plant or just wait for them to die off?
Thank you both for helping me figure this out! It's very interesting, how 2 different strains react to the same feeding and conditions. This one grew really tall even with LST, yet there are visible issues, sativa ones are smaller and barely show any issues at all, forming nice buds etc. This is a great and entertaining process, really enjoying whole experience so far! Good thing I can always ask for advice from more experienced growers :)

I don't either, although I do think we covered a lot that will help @Harry_Manback as he finishes this grow and he'll take everything he's learned and apply it to the next one ... I'm always seeing something new and learning something new as I "grow" along ...absolutely true!
i’m right now keeping everything the same as in nutes, but watering has changed for plants, a couple were overwatered back to back.. (i was sick and in pain) couldn’t think right.. anyways no excuses, but finally everyone is grooving along nicely.,
that takes some skill @MIGrampaUSA!
anyways don’t want to distract from @Harry_Manback’s thread..
just thinking it’s the effects from overwatering, worst case could have a root issue, though how far along are they? think you said 7 weeks last week.A little update:
First plant doesn't seem to be getting worse. Leaves that already had yellow spots forming are just showing those progress, doesn't look like there are many more appearing.
Second plant of the same strain shows a bit different stuff tho. No yellow spots, just yellow tips on newer leaves like first plant AND dark brown spots on fan leaves. Here are some pictures. Finally got my new PH meter, so will properly measure and adjust water PH.
Otherwise everything else seems to be going fine, as you see not all leaves are affected. Just strange that this one had no yellow spots prior and just went straight into brown patches.

Yup, 7th week ending and on Monday it'll be the beginning of 8th.are they at 7 weeks flowering or?
sometimes brown patches are caused by watering too frequently?Yup, 7th week ending and on Monday it'll be the beginning of 8th.
Will continue feeding them 50% of recommended nutrient dosage. Burnt tips were present for at least 1.5 weeks but brown patches appeared only on during this week. Other plant that had yellow tips and spots is looking better tho!
Reduces the amount of flowering to 2x per week, and giving them like 2.5-3l(0.6-0.8 gallons) water per watering with 5 gallon pots.sometimes brown patches are caused by watering too frequently?
As long as it works out it's OK I guess :) Average time for Gorilla Cookies should be like 10 weeks, according to most of the sources.8th week flowering? mmm, you could have a 12 weeker there!
Do you have a loupe or magnifying glass to inspect your leaves? Most of the problematic critters are too small to see with the naked eye. And even stuff like powered mildew is easier to diagnose with a loupe. Some of your leaves look suspect for critter/PM while others look like a nutrient burn. Just to make sure, you’re testing your pH after adding all your nutrients? (Never used the Fish-Mix, but most fish hydrolysate really knocks down your pH. At recommended rates it will take my water from 7 to 4.)Checked for pests and mildew
Yup, been using magnifying glass to check for pests and couldn't find anything. Plus two sativa plants nearby doesn't show any issues at all, I reckon if there would've been any critters they'd be on all the plants in growtent.Do you have a loupe or magnifying glass to inspect your leaves?
Thing is, I was only testing soil PH after watering\feeding them, since I had no PH meter for water, now I've got one and will be testing water after adding all the needed nutrients in + doing soil test after. Excluded FishMix for now tho.Just to make sure, you’re testing your pH after adding all your nutrients?
I had a old battery in a EC meter a few years back and an old bottle of synthetic ferts I found in the garage. My readings were super low compared to the instructions so I keep pouring in the juice (figuring it must have lost it’s mojo). After a week or so I notice the meter is displaying all these weird random characters when I turn it on, and then it finally poops out. Throw in a new battery and my ppm is over 2k.Ok, so my soil PH meter was busted, apparently. Not showing correct measurements, so I've been watering my plants with PH being way too high. I think it wasn't initially broken but might've gone "bad" sometime into the growing process.
This would prolly explain all the lockout issues etc.
