Leaf problem second opinion - Soil grow

Thread starter #1
I have two special queens and a delicious seeds cotton candy going right now. I had to chop a white widow last week because of this problem. I had what i believe was a spider mite problem and sprayed them with neem a month ago. It seemed to stop the bugs from eating my plants. I sprayed again yesterday because I read that mites could cause this problem. My soil meter shows the soil is pH'd at 8.0 but runoff measures around 6.3. I'm thinking it is salt build up or a pH problem and i plan to flush next watering. I water less than once per week, nutes every other watering. I'd appreciate any opinions.

After flushing with some calmag, the leaves stopped rapidly burning up. It happened on the two plants i was watering once a week. The other one pictured on the top left was fine and it was only getting watered once every two weeks. I'll give plain water next watering and see how it goes. I'm leaning more torward it being salt build up or nute burn. The plants i watered more often also got more nutrients.
