My auto has rust colored brown spots. It's only on a few leaves at the top of the canopy. It's not mold but some kind of necrosis. One site suggested a calcium deficiency. I'm not worried yet, because
the rest of the leaves are looking great. Just curious.
It looks to be in the cal/mag area. I'd say at this point of the grow and by the look of some leaves in the picture it's probably magnesium deficiency leading to calcium uptake deficiency.
Definitely looks to me like magnesium and calcium deficiency leading to lack of chlorophyll. Mist with leaves directly with plain epsom salts mixed 1/2 teaspoon per liter of dechlorinated and pH'd water when your lights are off. You should see a big improvement in 12-36 hours if it is only magnesium. Lack of magnesium leads to calcium deficiency, too, causing the brown spots (necrosis), so it may need calcium too. A lot of people use calmag to get both at the same time. Hope that helps out.
I am running Jack's 321 light in hydro. 1st time for Jack's with an auto. All the other autos I've run were not heavy feeders. I was leary of upping the PPMs. I did see a little leaf tip burn so I wasn't sure if cal-mag or other nutes would burn it more.
For new strains I usually increase nute concentration till I see a light leaf tip burn then back it off. Maybe I backed off too much. 🤔
This is the northern lights auto I'm growing that's almost done but a couple weeks. Was having a look around the other day and found a dead dried up flower on the stem and when I removed it saw a section of stem about 2 inches long had necrosis. Should I just leave this cola to do its own thing and hopefully not have the whole branch die before harvest or should I just get the shears and snip this thing from the plant before it spreads like cancer?
