Do the Leaves have an Inter-Veinal Banding Appearance

Zinc Deficiencies
Deficiencies appear as chlorosis in the inter-veinal areas of new leaves producing a banding appearance as seen in figure 18. This may be accompany reduction of leaf size and a shortening between internodes. Leaf margins are often distorted or wrinkled. Branch terminals of fruit will die back in severe cases.
Also gets locked out due to high pH. Zn, Fe, and Mn deficiencies often occur together, and are usually from a high pH. Don't overdo the micro-nutrients- lower the pH if that's the problem so the nutrients become available. Foliar feed if the plant looks real bad. Use chelated zinc. Zinc deficiency produces "little leaf" in many species, especially woody ones; the younger leaves are distinctly smaller than normal. Zinc defeciency may also produce "rosetting"; the stem fails to elongate behind the growing tip, so that the terminal leaves become tightly bunched.

Zinc Toxicity
Excess Zinc is extremely toxic and will cause rapid death. Excess zinc interferes with iron causing chlorosis from iron deficiency. Excess will cause sensitive plants to become chlorotic.

Looks like I have a slight case of this at day 47 from seed, I have corrected the Ph and changed my nutes, if my fan leaves are about 1/2 as bad as the ones pictured, will they recover to a healthy color soon? This happened while I was gone for a couple weeks and couldn't top up the reservoir in my dwc. Thanks a lot for helping me identify the problem though. :peace:

Hey everyone, was just wondering if anyone seen leaves like this before? Its a Burmese kush clone. The Entire plant's leaves are like this, but there was 5 leaves on some when it was a baby. Would like to hear some thoughts because I have never seen anything like this before!

Clutch, Looks like you have a mutant. It happens once in a while. Like a kid that is born with 6 fingers or with webbed feet. It should still get you high though!:rollit:

I'm no pro. But with the few grows I have done that honestly looks like nutrient burn... Too much nutrients bc all.the tips are turning slight yellow. And cal mag def bc of the yellow spotting. And ya looks like you have zinc n most cases your ph is too high.. But that's all my experiences from simular looking issues. Hope I helped.
