Cannabis deficiency questions

Alright so this is my first grow and my plant is about 3 weeks into veg and I have these brown dots and brown spots on the leaves. I water every other day, every two waters I add nutes to the soil. I have tested my ph and its 7.0 (which is a bit high and in optimum range from what I know) so what could be wrong with my plants?

After doing some research I might have the first stages of Calcium deficiency, I checked the nutes that I'm using and lo and behold! They didn't have any Calcium at all.

Hey Soulstik,

Glad you got that figured out. I just don't have enough experience to offer any thoughts on deficiencies other than the same well meant but unhelpful deficiency chart you see posted as a response to these types of questions all the same. So many of the nutrient deficiencies display symptoms that so closely resemble each other.

My question is, where would I get nutes that have calcium? Whats recommended.

Egg shells are all natural and a lot of people just throw them in a compost pile so they decay and then use it to enrich their soils. I save my egg shells, crush them into a very fine powder (mixer), and then place a tablespoon of it on the topsoil. Every time you water, your plants get a nice shot of calcium for your plants and it costs nothing and is nature at it best. Google it.

That is great info then! I did actually google it before seeing this, so I will be adding this so I don't loose a plant. Thanks!

Actually I took another look at my plant, its 3 weeks into veg, and the root system has already grown deep down into the 5 Gal bucket i'm using, The root system is all over in that bucket, it may have become root bound or because I haven't been watering it enough.
