Feeding/watering notes:
Last week of veg (2 weeks ago), I fed them a "Microblast Mix". They have only gotten the following tea/mix one time:
  • 1 TBSP - Grow
  • 1 tsp - Bloom
  • 1 tsp - Molasses
  • 1 tsp - Meta-K
  • 1 tsp - Microblast

They are now on an early flowering tea/mix. They have gotten the following 2 times:
  • 1 TBSP Grow
  • 1 TBSP Bloom
  • 1 tsp Molasses
(all ingredients are added to a gallon of water)

I am starting to noticing the lower leaves turning yellow with purple stems. I'm thinking the plants may have a mg or p deficiency? Does anyone have any suggestions? I'll post some pictures when the lights turn on.

You might be a bit light with the lime.

With promix, "I" use 1cup/cf of mix. 1cf=~7.5 gallons, so 5 gallons would be ~2/3 of a cup, a long ways from 2tbsp.

I'm also running EJ. Be very easy with the micro and meta-k, both are very easy to over do. I now never apply more than every 2 weeks and it's usually every 3 weeks.

I also really like the extra goodies in the catalyst, but use it 1/4 cat and 3/4 molasses to make it last.

I think you are right about the mg and p.

Thanks DD! I think I need to reevaluate my nute recipe. The yellowing is starting with the bottom leaves (from the tip -> to the purple stems) Here are some pictures:

imho you should consider using 25% perlite with your mix along with dolomite. as far as adding dolomite now, mix into the top layers of soil and water until you get flowing runoff...:)

my plants are getting worse. Now instead of 1 looking bad, they all do.

couldn't find domolite lime, so i picked up garden lime (powder). How much do i add and how often? like a few tbsp?

Garden lime is fine, as long as it's powdered.

2tbl/gallon of mix. ex, 3 gallon pots = 6 tbl of lime.

Sprinkle it on top and water in. One application only! Takes a couple of weeks to kick in.
