I see a lot of things that it could be. @garrigan62 what do you think?
Please fill out a support ticket. If you don’t know the answer to everything, that’s okay.

As far as watering goes, let your soil get dry before watering. Don’t go by the number of days between watering - go by the dryness.
Have you checked under leaves for bugs?

If there were bugs I’d think they would be on the other plants that are doing great
If you’re growing in soil, and not a soiless mix, you need to find out why your PH runoff is dropping to 5.8. That’s way too low for soil. Ph in and out needs to be between 6.3 & 6.8
I have no idea y it drops but I lose .5 each time I water
Mighty mites colonize one plant then move to another until they eat everything! I think it looks like sunburn anyway, possibly too much light?
I’ll try moving the lights up and see if that helps. You think it might be in to small of a pot?
Too small a pot won’t look that bad and they’ll dry out pretty fast, noticeably fast, look on the underside of the leaves for mites and their eggs along the veins.
7 inches seems too close, what does the light manufacturer recommend? I use CMH and they’re 16"+ from the top of the canopy and on light movers!
It’s a phlizon 600watt light I’ll look it up. I looked under the leaves with a jewelers loop and didn’t see anything
Okay - FYI, that is a 108 watt light in reality.
Just as a starting point, I’d suggest raising it to 20 inches above the canopy. See how things go for a week, then adjust as necessary.
What brand/mix of soil are you running, by the way?
Good deal I’ll do that I hope it fixes it it was a nice plant and being this is my first grow I know I will not be getting a good yeald but I need to learn
Okay. Based on all the feces in that mix, I bet it’s pretty heavy in nitrogen and phosphorus. You probably don’t want to add any nutrients until it’s into the flowering stage or shows a nutrient deficiency, but I’ll defer to the soil experts on here to analyze and address that.
For anyone else taking a look, here is the link to the soil being used.
