Is this normal, or a deficiency, or something else?

A question from a fellow grower:

My plants (your Gold Leaf) never seem bushy, even thought I pinch stems early in growth. I have one plant that is beginning to flower. Most of the fan leaves have faded and been trimmed, but the leaves near the buds are doing something I have never seen. Could you look at these pictures and advise if this is normal or due to nutrient deficiency or ?

Great looking plants - fan leaf color change in late flower is normal - the plant’s using all the leave’s “engery” . If any kind of deficency don’t worry about it (it would take 2 week two fix issue anyway) , just flush because you are in the “Harvest Window”

We really need some information to get a good answer for you. It looks like you are just starting flowering on one plant, is this the one? How many are you growing at the same time?
