White spots on new fan leaves

Hi everyone! New grower here, and I’m after some advice. I’m not sure if the thread I’m posting on is correct, so let me know if I’m in the wrong place.

These two spots appeared on my baby plant and I was unable to deduce the cause.
Hoping it’s not a insect problem as I lack neem-seed oil, and I’m impartial about using commercial bug sprays.

Thanks in advance to any responses!

Keep a close eye on it to make sure it doesn’t spread. It looks like a ph fluctuation. Maybe recommend giving her a good flush of the correct ph’d water. Let her dry out. Give a really good dry cycle after the flush. Flush with a good amount. If it’s a three gal pot. Flush with a gallon in a half or so of water, if not a bit more.

Hey welcome to the site man!! I’ve got links under my post to help you get familiar with the site.

While your at it, check out my journal :thumb:

See you around man. I’ll be back after work!

Dude! Thank you so much, I really appreciate this, I’ll certainly check out your journal.

I’m not sure what you mean by information on my grow, but here goes.
The pot is about half a gallon, not sure as I’m Australian, the soil is low quality potting mix infused with small amounts of perlite.
I’ve placed a very small amount of osmocoste in the top soil, a pinch of Epsom salts and I’ve been feeding it with bottle nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium).

The plant popped from seed about 5-6 weeks ago, and is grown under a 60w light (as it’s winter here), and placed outside during the day.

I’ve noticed fungus gnats are buzzing about.
I’ve not ph tested the water I use, but it is direct rain/tank water as I live rurally.

I also just noticed this, but one of the new growth blades is deformed, any ideas? Thanks again mate :)
Everything looks fine in the picture. It’s just a new internode being grown. :thumb:

I suggest getting your self a nice ph pen, and or just get the test strips. Your plants will most definitely thank you on that! :thumb:

Hey mate, I've run into another problem and I'd really appreciate your advice if you've got the time to share it.

My plant isn't looking too healthy on the new growth, and I'm not sure what the problem is.
The new leaves seem to be crinkling/dry/withering, I'm not exactly sure how else to explain it but if you can identify what the problem might be from these photos I'd love to know.
Thanks in advance.

Is it almost appear glossy and blistering like? If so then russet/ broad mites

But with the pictures you provided they don’t look all that glossy, or blister look, you said their crinkling and dying? Are they turning brown? Can you post some pictures of the dead leaves?

Do you have a microscope of any sort? Are you able to look at the back of your leaves with it? Do you see any signs of small bugs? I’m thinking you may have broad/russet mites. Don’t be alarmed, there’s way to combat at. Don’t freak out until it has been confirmed, then start treating it. :thumb:
