doesn't look much like a nute lockout, looks more like a Nitrogen Deficiency, when the leaves start turning yellow, it means they are lacking in Nitrogen!!! but the other spoting i'm not sure about... have you been feeding nutes to them?? if it's not Nitrogen, then I would have to say, in my educated guess, it would have to be Manganese deficiency... You should hit up BPN and talk with him!!! he went to college for this stuff!!! not to mention they have a great organic line that a lot of us are using now!!! for manganese I believe you want to get 1/2 tsp of Epson salt to a gallon of water should do the trick!!!

Hope this helps!!!

:peace2:

We usually only run House and Garden nutrients from veg to flower. Wonder if BPN could send us some samples to try out?

Next feeding I'll most def. add some Cal/Mag into the res. :thanks:

Quick update:

So only after 1 week from transplant, we have eager white roots expanding out the bottoms. Next transplant (5 gallon) scheduled for next week.:Namaste:

Some over-night growth. Vegging with House and Garden nutes seem to speed up growth fast:

Here's how we maintain air temperatures.

On an earlier note about the macro-nute problem my leaves where showing, it seems to be just my pH. Since I'm using House and Garden's Aqua Flakes A & B with Sunshine Mix #4, my pH needs to be at least 6.5 almost 7.0!

LeafLady your setup and plants look great! Your PH did seem high to me even though sunshine says not to adjust PH. I like to keep soiless mixes around 6.0 myself. Are you gonna top of fim the plants or just let them go as is? When do you plan to flip to 12/12?
Did I mention I love your setup???? ;-) :goodjob:

I'll be super-cropping this batch sometime next week. I want to allow the plants to root a little bit more. I'll keep playing w/ my pH until I get it right.

Thanks!:Namaste:
