Might be hungry then mate, if the EC is consistently coming out lower, up the feed a little more. Five weeks through and flowers are forming now, or five weeks into flower? A little spray for some epsom salts will fix it i think, but that will depending on if there are flowers or not. 

Lets see some pics as where the plant is in its life cycle will help get a diagnosis right Smile

Hmm, those look pretty decent to me... what is your pH coming in at? Could be a bit off and starting to lock out some nutrients..? They don't look bad at all to me from those pics tho.

And welcome!

Look like it could be a cal.mag issue, a spray of epsom salts will do them good i think. But like TG says mate, they look good. Don't be too quick to try and treat everything, especially minor changes, it could be the plant just adjusting to a new feed or something. 

As flowering begins, their need for nutrients will change, a little bit of an epsom salts spray just as flower starts always does my plants well. Try that and they should pick up I think  Smile

@ctlc993

Depends what's in it mate. 1.4 is a bit high I think, but it depends on what nuits you're using. 

You on bloom nuits now? If flowers are forming, you want to reduce the amount of nitrogen the plants are getting, and increase the PK. 

What exactley are you putting into the water mate? tell me:

Your background EC ( EC of plain tap water)

EC after adding your food

How many ML per litre of what brand, and type of nutrients your feeding Smile Then we can get her proper diet sorted for the next few weeks

Same nuits as i use mate. 

The 1.4 EC should be ok, but, reduce the A n B, and cannazyme, get some PK 13/14 and make the Ec to 1.4 again. 

1ml per litre of a n b so 15ml per 15l, and do the same with the cannazyme, then bring the ec up to 1.4 again with the PK, itll be maybe 1.5 ml per litre, but go slowly to be sure. 

This will reduce the nitrogen, bit give the plant some extra pk now she is forming flowers. 

Are you watering every day?

Wicked have ordered epsome salts so they will be here tommoz just in case anyway as they are cheap enough and I'm sure will come in handy, happy day good to get some advice from someone useing the same stuff,I am watering once a day at the moment, am keeping the boost low because of them being autos but will start adding some pk in from tommorrows water starting low and building up abit I think then,some places i had read only to use pk the week before your final flush but I'm learning it depends on so many different variable on when to add things and at what levels Smile it's all so educational i love it Smile

Looking good man. Things fix up fast in coco, a flush and a refeed can fix a plant of most issues Smile As they head into flower, a little spray of epsom salts always seems to do then well 

Keep us informed of the progress mate

She hasnt quite finished that transition yet, so she still needs a lot of nitrogen for the stretch. Keep on the grow food for just a few more feed before upping the PK any more Smile

The bottom leaves won't be getting as  much light as well. So they may turn yellow and fall off, all in all, looking great Smile Keep up the good work

So should I stop pk all together then for now ? Have only been useing it in very small quantities at 10 ml per 15 leters and was gunna build it up as flower progressed so to speak could this do harm, the leaves at the bottom are not getting loads of light but there dose seem to be a few dieing but everything upwards look okay abit of tip burn but not bad at all, have uped my a and b back up abit and dropped the pk back down for today's water Smile thanks for your input ec of feeding back to 1.4 from 1 3 over the last week
