Okay let’s disect the issue.
First MG is time release so those little yellowish balls in soil is fertilizers. The plants rooting tears into these things and enjoys a good feeding. The problem is weed needs some other nutrients. Just water for this is good. Next that 1200w LED. Even though it is often stated that closeness is key I have learned these things can burn a plant easily without notice. Look for bleaching and raise lights up a foot or so to see how plant adjust. It will take 2 weeks to notice a difference. Good luck. That miracle grow issue is unavoidable because its already in the soil. I use MG LIGHT(BLUE BAG).the clawing is a sign of nutrient burn but the taco look is something else.

Lol a friendly flag is always helpful folks
@markymark you need to get ph readings

Thanks for the heads up on the name and phone, purely accidental!

Just tested the ph with a ferry morse test vial and ph came back app. 5.0 very acidic…that probably isn’t good!
