Yeah I would say pH - I don't use nutrients but when I used my tap water it was crapping all over my plants and they looked like that sometimes.

Lockouts happen yellow on new growth is usually a bad sign.

My reaction would be to water plain water. If you're inclined to test the water pH I would do that and be sure its in the zone for whatever your growth medium is.

For me in soil it's 6.0 to 6.5pH. I like it slightly acidic for a lot of reasons. Lots of people that use nutrients like it even more acidic - depends on the nutrients I suppose.

If you using tap water - you may wanna let it sit out a bit before watering in. That will lower the pH naturally over time.

I see an iron deficiency and probably due to your setting your pH down too low. FFOF is best used by coming in with all fluids at 6.2-6.3... 6.0 is too low and you are locking out some of your nutrients.

different soil on the plant in question? What soil if I may ask??
Please don't ,i made the mistake went to home depot and picked up anything that didnt have miracle grow in it,i ended up putting all the soil in a container mixing bat guano and worm castings transplanted 3 of the girls and left the one with issue in the regular plain fertilizer drained like crap even with perlite.

You should check out your local garden center. They likely will have much better bagged soil choices. I know our local garden center has just about everything and even have their own mix for purchase.

Good you were avoiding Miracle Grow..

The miracle is when something actually grows. lol
