@dankdixy Welcome to Percy! I think this more looks like an excess of potassium than anything else but not entirely sure. Can you tell us more about the grow? How much you feed per litre, how often?

There are also some really small white dots on those leaves, which could mean bugs, maybe even spider mites and you need to check the leaves thoroughly, on both side ( top and underneath) for bugs mate. A good way to check is hold a piece of white paper under the leaf, and sahck it well. If anything is on the leaf it will fall off and land on the paper and you'll be able to see something. 

Give us some more info on the grow mate so we can help the feeding schedule dialed in Smile

@macky thanks for the reply ( love podcast btw obsessed!). So getting litre of water a day with ml of each in litre  every other day as per the instructions from the friend who gave me the biobizz but looking online at the company feed chart just now and it’s saying I should be doing 2ml of grow and bloom so maybe that but if you think excess no deficiency then I’m not sure lol.   As for the bugs been thinking for last couple of days. All the girls were in greenhouses till I got tents sent up so could well be infested. Not doing to good this year 😂 also only just managed to get a fan/filter set up last couple of days as for the last 2 years I’ve just winged it under a led box fan no filter 😅 but after binge listening to you guys realised need to take it seriously lol

You're probably over watering them Dixy, they shouldn't need watering so often. Plants growing in soil like a wet and dry cycle and should be a few days between waterings.

The manufacturer always suggests too much 😉 1ml might be ok, 1.5 max, so you might be ok there.

Have a good check and let us know Smile

Well I say a litre a day but I do lift pots to see if dry or not before I water but think your right with the over watering as been worried about them not getting enough nuits so been pushing but will wait till dryer 

not like a company to recommend using more of there product than you need so you buy more 😂 glad I haven’t upped the dose yet then lol

Thanks for the support

@dankdixy this is a tricky one with a plant that is consumed. I shy away from toxic chemicals, and prefer to use caffeine for bugs becuase plants produce caffeine as an insecticide, and it is not harmful to humans in reasonable amounts.  Here is a link to an article I made about spider mites and black tea:

@dankdixy 👍 remember that you must coat the entire leaf and stem surfaces, including under the leaves.  Bon chance!

@macky you were completely right with the over watering and too much nutrients held back for the last week or so and all looking a lot better and healthier thanks for advice man
