Lower leaves turning yellow and dying

So first things first, lets start removing those yellow leaves on your plant. They do no good when they are like that, its also an open invite for pests and diseases. Those first 2 pictures make me think of a phosphorus deficiency. It could also be nute burn. So since you are using nutes I don't think its any kind of deficiency. Try backing off the nutes for a week and see how it looks then. What kind of soil are you using, and have you checked the ph lately? When you say seems to be fine that makes me think your just guessing and haven't really checked it. What strength did you start the nutes at?

I've removed all the dead leaves, just took shot before taking them off. I've never checked the soil ph but I've always used ph 6,5 water. Soil is mix of potting soil and vegetable soil (soil + nute mix for vegetables). I burned the plants accidently because I tried to fix the yellow leaves which I thought to be result of potassium defiency.

Okay awesome. I would suggest finding something to test your ph with. This could be a ph issue. If your ph is off it can block the roots from taking up the nutes they need and cause a deficiency of some kind. The only time you need to worry about a potassium deficiency is during flowering. During veg they need higher amounts of nitrogen. I still think you should stop using nutes. And hopefully in 3 to 5 days we will see some progress. Btw what do your temps usually run?

Temps are usually at 26C except at night when I cant hold window open they are around 28C. I was thinking of going 12/12 in few days, what you think of this? Should I still pause nutes?

definently sounds like your ph is off, probably too low. had that same problem last year during harvest. add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda per gallon to raise the ph.

I wouldn't go adding anything that will raise or lower the ph unless you know for sure what your ph is. Yes I would still pause using nutes, just so we can find out whats wrong. Going 12/12 should not be an issue.

My both plant's lower leaves are slowly turning yellow and ultimately dying. The top ones are doing fine. What could cause this?

MG is chemically synthesized mineral salt from labs. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE STUFF which is definitely causing your pH to go out of wack. Get a base up and acid down kit purchasable at any hydro store (one in every city). pH needs to be at around 6.6 FOR THRIVE. Before you bud MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ATLEAST 12 axillary buds or lateral meristems whatever you know them as.

a root ball is where the majority of the roots have gathered at the bast of the shoot. Just make sure you plant in good soil I would recommend fox farm as well as their nutrients.

Those are nutrient burnt not deficient. While using miracle grow soil you don't fertalize with ANYTHING for at least the first three weeks, most strains do well off of miracle grow tbh (not every strain just most). Just people don't realize that those TIME RELEASED nutrients... Suprisingly take TIME to start working lol.... Next time don't feed them anything until they start telling you too lol.

Also looked over watered. Never water unless your soil is super light to pick up. Or you can put your finger down all the way in it and have it come out relatively clean.... Kind of like baking brownies....

The older leaves are wilting off and dying though the newer ones look quite strong. Been getting black spots on the leaf tips too. Don't know whether this is nitrogen def or toxicity.. how do i make my plant healthy again?

Just going to say the bio biz line up is shit. you have to be very generous with the nutes or will get def.. using recommended feeding like 1 ml of grow and 1 ml of bloom ppm was still under 200!! One of my plants in soil using biobiz had same issues thought it was nute burn until i checked ppm so i mixed it up 1 ml of each til i had an 800 ppm mix was more like 10 ml of each in 1 litre of water. the burnt growth wont recover but the new growth will be lush. i got some awesome weed off that plant but never used bio bizz again nutes cost to much for how much you ACTUALLY need to use
