These are my MH 80% sativa and 20% indica at week 7; day 53 of veg.

I been adding 5ml of Cal mag per gallon for the last 4 waterings, with every other watering the farmfox organic nitro and big grow a little bit under recommended dose.  Didn't have the Cal mag to start with, think it was week 4 it arrived. Keep getting some leaves, a few, with the small brownish looking spots. Which I thought was a calcium deficiency. 

Then there's two with the tips looking slightly burned and yellowish. 

And if my soil has settled some, would it be ok to add more which has been 70% potting soil and 30% perlite. Thinking of adding more perlite to my next pots and these when this set is finished, they don't seem to dry out fast enough. Anywhere from 5 to 8 or more days. Any suggestions on what I can do to increase faster dry out time.

As far as I can tell the undersides are looking good.

Well overfed by the looks of the leaves...dark green and waxy is a symptom of too much Nitrogen, as are the tips of the leaves burning...back off on the feed a bit...I would guess at the spots being more to do with nutrient lockout rather than calcium deficiency...so drop the calmag too

Soil is usually good for 4 weeks of veg but you are in week 10 ?? wow...long veg time

Indoors or Outdoors ?

If indoors what lighting ?

Until the last two nutrient feedings I had been given half of the recommended a dose with the organic nitrogen (Foxfarm Big Bloom) and the grow big. Been putting my ph at the 6.1 to 6.5

My indoor lights are the supposed to be full spectrum. 2 Exlenvce 1200TW 265v triple chip with the veg switch on. 

Back on the 1st of Jan. My autoflowers starting showing pistils. Had them all together.  Then finally got my second area put together. It only has one of those lights on the autos. The whole room should have been autos instead of having two photos with them. But I had a problem with a few seeds not germinating out in the beginning and just wanted to make sure I had four plants growing. Then one of the two MH is behind the bigger one by 11 days. I was hoping to veg them both to the later one's week of 10. It's at day 41. OR should I be flipping the bloom switch on at day 56 in the 8th week.

@whispererofweed

So you've upped the feed in the last 2 then, has this coincided with the spotting ?

Mine only get 4 weeks ish of veg, lol...11 days shouldn't matter

Well they had a tiny bit of spotting before I received the Cal mag and started it. It kind of disappeared for a week or two, as I remove the leaves with spots or damage. My one GG Auto suffered a bad calcium deficiency before the Cal mag arrived. The two autoflowers seem to be looking ok for suffering a tough start. 

Only 4 weeks of veg? We'll see I'm allowed 4 oz a month, and a 3-month supply, three-quarters of a pound. And that's just for my first year. As I can easily smoke that in a month. An ounce a week. But in September when I have to revisit the doctor and renew my license by the beginning of October. I'm going to see about them doubling my amount needed for my 3-month duration. Which I'm trying to get my plants in a four-month cycle. With at least four always in flower and 4 new veg. And the next set doing Cindy 99 and hoping to start cloning. 

I know in the beginning when I had my humidity to high it more than likely stunted some growth. Thank gosh I found this site.

Lol...I'm not allowed any at all...boohoo 🙁

However, I have a rotation going that usually guarantees 400g+ per harvest (3 plants) and I smoke maybe oz & half a week.

I start my next run on week 4 of veg and germ my next lot on week 4 of flower...woeks well so far as long as no interruptions

DONT STRESS! Not every leaf has to be perfect. For late veg I think they look great.

LoL yeah I know. I'm the type who strives for perfection with certain things, especially my gardening. The last few days I've been adding an hour or two to the dark. Tomorrow I'll add the last 1 hour and they'll be on 12/12. Plus I turned the bloom light on the first day after decreasing two hours of light.

Great advice man, there is always some issues mate, very rare a plant look perfect. They look fine and you're doing great, keep up the good work. if it progresses then its something that might need fixing. But the plants are good a figuring out how to adjust to different surroundings. Just stay consistent, they plant will adjust

Thanks Macky. I appreciate yours and everyone else's help and encouragement. At least it is just a few leaves here and there and not a large amount. The last couple days I have done a little lolly popping. 

And I had another question for you. I have my photos and autos split up now. Though the autos are in what's supposed to eventually be the seedling to veg room. Now I just have the two Gorilla Glue autos in there. But I'm fixing to germinate some Cinderella 99. Since the autos stay on a 18/6, same as a vegging plant. Will the light over the autos being set on veg and bloom, and a light over the new veggies being only on veg switch. 

Will that badly effect one another or should I hang a piece of maylar enough where it defers the lights from one another.

Extra light, even if just veg light, can only make things better...its not like you cant use veg light in flower for fear of death...no mylar needed 😉

Yep, I agree with ZN. I have going on what you have in my small tent right now - 3  autos about 5 weeks along, as well as 2 newly germinated photos, both under 18/6. Having the bloom switch on for your autos shouldn't affect them much IMO (red light can cause the plant to stretch a bit but, I doubt it would really be enough to be detrimental, or even to notice).

Thanks fellas. Cause my Gorilla glues will probably have around a month of. (on week 2- 11days)   flowering  by the time I get my new seeds germinated and potted. And with these lights, you run the veg and bloom light during flowering. I'm hoping later this year I can fit one of the spider farmer lights into my budget, instead of only these cheap Exlenvce 1200.
