Plant Leaf Deficiency

Take a look at the picture below and let me know what it looks like. This plant is the only of 3 showing these signs. This plant started thinning out and losing leafs and I could never get to the bottom of it. Strawberry Cough in FFOF, the one showing these signs is in a mix of 75/25 FFOF and Chicken Manure.

What strain, Seed bank, or bag seed- ILGM Strawberry Cough

• Method: Soil w/salt, Organic soil, Hydroponics, Aquaponics, KNF- Soil, FFOF with some chicken manure added

• Vessels: Pots, Grow beds, Buckets, Troths- 5 gal fabric pots

• PH of Water, Solution, runoff (if Applicable)- that plant was 5.9, started feeding higher ph (7) to try and raise

• PPM/TDS or EC of nutrient solution if applicable- haven’t been taking EC. Fox farms trio twice a week, big bloom and grow big, 3tspn/gal. Calmag and water for all other waterings

• Indoor or Outdoor- Outdoor

• Light system- the sun

Looks like magnesium deficiency


How can I supplement that? Currently every watering is 1tspn/gal calmag. It being pretty hot where we I am located though I have been watering multiple times per day.

Get a gallon of distilled water , add 2 Tbs of Epsom salt and spray all the leaves at lights out. It will give it a quick shot of magnesium. Definitely get your ph up and be careful with the calmag . To much calcium in the soil can lock out magnesium


I applied the salt water, is there anything I should be doing to prevent calcium buildup? Stop using calmag in the daily water? It hit 100* today so multiple waterings is kinda a must with these fabric bags being outside. They start drooping about mid day without additional water.
