They look to me to be a bit overwatered and the super green leaves kinda look like a N toxicity. Nice setup tho buddy

You got cal mag going in small doses daily if in coco or hydro? If brown spots prob what it is specially under led? Yellowing depending how far long nitro burn ? Bleaching lights to close?

Here is a chart to help you

My PH IS AT 7.0. IS THAT OK? OR SHOUKD I DROP IT A LITTLE?



it depends on your growing medium. for soil you want a range between 6.0 to 6.8. 6.5 is kinda the sweet spot. hydro likes it a bit lower, 5.5 - 6.1, with 5.8 being optimum. i have a copy of this chart in my grow room as a quick guide when i suspect something is wrong.





the ph values are for feeding, not the run off water.


also, when posting try turning the caps key off. caps are the equivalent of shouting in the interwebz.

On my first two grows I tried to keep the pH right at 6.5 for soil. I've done a little reading and heard people say that fluctuating the pH of a little bit up-and-down can help the plant bring in different nutrients. So that being said in my next grow I will probably have feedings anywhere from 6.3 to 6.8. I will very them differently each time

Also, make sure you check/adjust your PH AFTER mixing all nutes! ;)

Thanks again. Im using FFOF. In a 5 gallon pot a little perlite mixed in. The plant is a Duch Cheese clone he said was a about 5 weeks in veg. I give it its nutes when needed just wanted the PH to be right on. Im now learning how importabt it realky is
 
I am slowly killing my plants worrying about PH !!!! Before I had very little issues, now that I have been PH'ing my nutrients I have finally figured out my problem.... PH Pen is out of whack !!!!! I am affraid to see what my plants will look like when the light pops on. I just fed yesterday and it was not pretty.....way too much ph down I am figuring.... Also when I fed this last time a gave them a thorough drink.... I hope they arent dead or beyond help today....
