Clone getting worse

    I posted here a few days ago about yellow/brown tips. I was told she needed some nutes, which I did but it has since gotten worse.
    My ph meter needs calibration and the hydro store had no buffer solution. Could it be ph? nute lock out? or should I continue with just water?
    I don't think heat is an issue as it's under low watt cfls for now.
    I have no idea what to do. Help please and thank you.

    nitrogen deficiency. Sorry it's very late and i'm heading to bed so i just posted all the info you should read about to make sure it's correctly diagnosed. at the bottom is a list of nutrients with the proper N needed to correct the problem
    Solution to fixing a Nitrogen deficiency

    Avoid excessive ammonium nitrogen, which can interfere with other nutrients. Too much N delays flowering. Plants should be allowed to become N-deficient late in flowering for best flavour.
    A goof solid N-P-K ratio will fix any nitrogen deficiency. Any chemical or organic fertilizers that have Nitrogen in them will fix a nitrogen deficiency., Peters all purpose plant food 20-20-20 is good, Miracle grow All purpose plant food, Miracle grow Tomato plant food, (Only mixing at ½ strength when using chemical nutrients, or it will cause nutrient burn!) as well and blood meal! If you need to give your plants a quick solution to nitrogen and you want to use blood meal, I suggest making it into a tea for faster use, where blood meal is slow acting, but when made into a tea it works quicker! Other sources of nitrogen are dried blood, Cotton seed meal which is slow acting, Insect eating bat guano which is fast acting. Bone meal which is a gradual absorption when not made into a tea.( also excellent source of phosphorus). Fish Meal Or Fish Emulsion is a good source of nitrogen and is medium acting. Worm castings, which is gradual absorption. Seabird guano, All purpose Millennia Seabird guano, Original Seabird guano All Purpose, Crabshell ,which is slow absorption. Fox Farm Grow Big, which is fast acting. ( can bring down your pH as well)
    Here are a list of things that help fix a Nitrogen Deficiency:

    Chemical Nutrients

    Advanced nutrients Grow (2-1-6)
    Vita Grow (4-0-0),
    BC Grow(1.2-3.2-6.5)
    GH Flora Grow (2-1-6)
    GH Maxi grow (10-5-14)
    GH floraNova grow (7-4-10),
    Dyna gro Grow (7-9-5)

    Organic Nutrients

    Dr. Hornby's Iguana Juice Grow (3-1-3)
    Advanced Nutrients Mother Earth Grow (1.5-.75-1.5)
    Earthjuice Grow (2-1-1),
    Pure Blend Pro (3-1.5-4)
    Bone Meal(0-10-0)
    Blood Meal(12-0-0)
    Fish Emulsion (5-1-1)
    Seabird Guano (11-13-3)
    Crab Shells(2.5-3.0-.5)
    Pure Blend Grow (0.4-.01-.5)
    Marine Cuisine (10-7-7)
    MaxiCrop Seaweed (1-0-3)
    Super Tea (5-5-1)

    Sea Island Jamaican Bat Guano (1-10-0)
    Kelp Meal (1-0-2)
    Seaweed Plus Iron
    Neptune's Harvest (2-4-0.5)
    Alaska Start-Up(2-1-2)
    Bio-Grow (1.8-0.1-6.6)
    Age old Grow (12-6-6)
    AGE Old Kelp (.30-.25-.15)
    Neptune's Harvest (2-4-1)
    Maxicrop Seweed(.1-0-1)
    METANATURALS Organic grow (3-3-3)
    METANATURALS Organic nitrogen (16-0-0)

    So adding anyone of these above should fix up your nitrogen deficiency! Nitrogen deficient plants usually recover in about a week, affected leaves will not recover.

    Now if you added to much chemical nutrients and or organics, (which is hard to burn your plants when using organics) you need to flush the soil with plain water. You need to use 2 times as much water as the size of the pot, for example: If you have a 5 gallon pot and need to flush it, you need to use 10 gallons of water to rinse out the soil good enough to get rid of excessive nutrients. Soluble nitrogen (especially nitrate) is the form that's the most quickly available to the roots, while insoluble N (like urea) first needs to be broken down by microbes in the soil before the roots can absorb it.

    Note: Blood Meal, Dried Blood, Guanos, Kelp Meal, Cotton Seed Meal, Peat Moss, Sulfur and fish meal are all acidic and can bring your pH down, so if you add these please monitor your pH when using those.

    Note: Bone Meal, Rock Phosphate, Wood Ashes pretty much all ashes, Shellfish Compost and Crab Meal are all alkaline and can make your pH go up, so if you add any of these please monitor your pH.

    The mother plant was sick and now the clone is struggling to recover.
