Nutrient problem? (Pictures)

    Hey everyone! thanks for the advice with my other plant, things are going well with it! I'm a little worried about anothre one however.. This one is a different strain than all the others, its much taller and less bushy, and the fan leaves have very narrow fingers vs really broad ones on the other plants.

    The lowest 2 sets of fan leaves have some brown spots and are browning at the edges of the leaves as well. The bottom pair of leaves are the the worst, and the set above aren't quite as bad. The brown parts aren't crispy, and they don't flake off in my fingers when I rub it, but its not quite as supple as the rest of the leaves. I checked my pH and its around 6.9 or 7. I've not fed the plants any nutes or anything since I transplanted them from a seed tray into some bigger pots with some potting soil which was about a month or two ago because I didn't know what I was doing and didn't want to nute burn them or anything. Anyway, here are 3 pictures.. 1 of the bottom set of leaves, 1 of the next set up, and one of the whole plant.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    It almost looks like over watering to me. But I do know that sometimes when I touch my leaves with bare hands my leaves begin to die and that might be your case here as well. Something with the oils on our hands that they just do not like.
    But it really looks like a bit of over watering.

    how was fixed? what did you do. i tried clipping the dark leaves off which was all of them. they grew back fast and were a very nice green. but i am noticing the spots on one of them again. what was your problem. it looks very similar.

    maybe a pH problem. maybe underwatering. generally when it starts at the bottom its a problem starting in the roots. so nutrient lock, salt buildup, pH is off, under/overwatering. but ive never had this problem so i pass it on to the "experts."

    i suggest general hydroponics n all u will need is a 2 part solution one for veg and one for flowering and it works excellent, n if u get serious u can get into there bigbloom formula's for massive buds n shit

    if you are worried about salt build up, i found that bush master works great. you can find it at a bordines or franks nursery. if your only limited to those stores, ask someone there if they have any salt disolving solutions. if they ask for what just say your feeding rose bushes. i agree with them though, most likly over/under watering. try to stay away from mirical grow. fox farm may be more expensive but is well worth it. if its in your means get all the fox farm product you can get, its litterally weed steraroids

    flush with straight water or look for a salt leaching product like Clearex by Botanicare.

    what stage are your plants in ladodger?? have you been using nutes? if not, you dont have to worry about salt build up. the nutes i use are all fox farm (tiger bloom, big bloom, ect.) they come in 2 packs of three, one pack for veggitative grow and the other for blooming. they also come with a feeding scedule which is very helpfull. i use bush master after every 4th feeding to insure no salt buildup. from those pics, i want to say thats not the problem though. looks more like over watering, maybe even mold dammage. do you regulate your humidity? gygax hit it right on, thats exactly what i use

    If you haven’t been feeding them nutes since the transplant you have flushed them already. It appears to be ... rather it is my guess, that you have a calcium or magnesium deficiency. Both Botanicare, and Advanced Nutrients carry a Cal-Mag product. Cheaper ones are sure to be found. Add this to your base formula and all will be well.
