Weird Spots on leaves near bud sites and drying of other top leaves

Using soil and 3x3 tent, growing Timewreck. The soil is still damp and the plants don’t seem to need water, but there has been development of small spots on some leaves and drying out of leaves near bud sites. Does anyone know what this is?

Can you wipe it off?

Nope, it is visible on the other side of the leave as well

Good that would be mold if you could. Is it mostly on top and your bottom leaves really dark green

High levels of iron will cause this

Yeah it is almost exclusively on the top leaves. The bottom leaves are either drying out (just naturally) or are dark green. Would this be the high iron? How could I lower the iron content ?

Sounds like it what are you growing in soil, hydro, other?

Growing in soil

I’m not sure how you are feeding but veg food is higher in n and weed doesn’t like n once in flower. I would at least skip a feeding then no veg food they will want higher p k during flower. If things get worse you will probably have to flush em and if you want you can just go ahead and flush now. Do you ph your in and out?

@Cp3456 Welcome to ILGM forum! Can you get a pic of the underside of an affected leaf? You can tag someone to get their attention like I did you above!

@Holmes this is the underside of the leaf, looks very similar to the top.

Are you foliar feeding, and if so when?

Not foliar feeding, adding nuts to tap water and feeding into the soil.
