how old are they?
These are my exact specs:
CLOSET IN A CLOSET 400w 4 x 2 tent in 4 x 6 closet
Cut to the chase, 400w dimmable cool tube in 4 x 2 x 5 tent
Not that important.
FFOF with 20% perlite
2 gallon pots
1 and a half weeks old
distilled water since day 1.
79 F - 85 F
40- 50% Humidity
Different strains are giving me different issues.
All plants are the same age, given same watering schedule (used to be every few days in peat pots, now once in the past 4 days since transplanting to 2 gallon pots) Soil is still VERY wet around roots, but dry on top.
Some have bad nute burn, on the other hand, some look like they have a N deficiency? But I doubt it.
It's the organic Ocean Forest, I know, but I want to know what my fellow gardeners think.

def not an N deficiency, they need very little at the stage they appear to be at. I personally have never had nute burn with seedlings in truly organic soil (obviously, not adding fertilizer until seedlings have nearly exhausted the soil's nutrients). I would guess a PH deficiency, have you checked into that?
Fox Farms has been known to burn seedlings..not a good medium to start them. Water when the individual seedlings need it not on a schedule.
Some of the tip burn.... Hmm is any water splashing on the plants while they are under that intense light?
It's an arti smoke , it's a party choke , it's a feathered apple !!
I got a 20 dollar soil PH meter but no matter what I put it in, it always reads 7.... I have no idea why.
I don't see how the PH could have gotten off if I only use sterile, neutral water in high-grade soil
But I need to get a new PH meter.
Look at the 6th picture;
From my understanding, this could be a iron lockout due to incorrect PH.
What do you think?
Also, growth has almost come to a halt with the majority of them. They are all the same age, but you can see how much they differ.
I tested Ph, all pots vary between 6.1 to 6.7
Could this be affecting my plants so much?
