Hello everyone, trying again to see if I can get this sorted, although I know it’s late in the game to be addressing it for this plant. I’ve tried to solve it the entire grow, even with posting on here, yet it has persisted.
The issue is that the leaves get brown blotches primarily from the center of the leaf outwards (not really the tips like nute burn). Often times you can also tell which leaves it’s about to happen on, because the spots that turn brown seem to go dark green/black first. It’s random, can happen anywhere on the plant with no pattern or isolated region. I have posted my runoff/soil ph/TDS measurements in my old posts which are all in good places, yet I’ve also been told from very successful growers that measuring those things is not even needed or relevant when growing in soil like the FoxFarm ocean forest and that I shouldn’t even be worrying about the PH of the water with a soil grow (even though I have kept it in a good range). I was also told nute burn shouldn’t be an issue in an organic grow where I wasn’t adding nutes.
In my old posts here, I was told it looked like calcium deficiency, so I have used cal-mag ever since as advised. But as you can see, we’re 3-4 weeks into flowering and the problem persists. Normally, I would trim the leaves that had developed the brown spots when watering; I water it every Sunday and Wednesday. But now that it’s in flower mode, I was told you have to be more careful as it won’t replace the leaves I trim like when it was in veg and is more sensitive to stress.
For 3-4 weeks into flower, the bud sites are looking frosty as hell but don’t seem to be “stacking” well, and multiple sugar leaves right next to buds have begun exhibiting this browning problem. I don’t like it, makes me nervous, and I don’t like that the problem remains unidentified and unresolved despite many attempts to get help solving it.
Anyone? Thanks in advance for the help!
