First year grower, please help.
What’s the best solution?
I’m new at this myself, with that said it looks like possible Fungus Gnats.
Looks to me like phosphorus deficiency which you can get from bat or bone meal… I see some bug bites on it too
I’m also leaning towards pests. Unfortunately. Check under the leaves and right before/at sunrise. When the dew is fresh, too.
The spots all over just don’t say nutrients to me.
It’s it not pests it then looks more like other pests. Breeding colonies.
I would say bugs, I think there’s nutrient issues as well though. Bugs could be causing that, so could your soil. Get rid of the bugs and have a poke at that soil. Slurry test or similar for ph etc
