    I forgot to mention I took the illest looking plant and checked roots ("outside" of the soil") it wasn't rootbound, roots i saw seemed to be healthy. Drainage seems to be good as I have perlite on bottom of container which I covered with some kind of material which lets water run but soil doesnt get through it, cant remember what it is in english and everytime I water my plants i water untill I see 10-20% runoff water. I have to do some research about salty soil, I'm not familiar with that. Could it be that I didn't have pH testing kit with me earlier this grow and I have been watering them with almost 8pH water and now dropped it instantly to about 6pH?
    Cheers

    Does the material in the pot, on top of the perlite, catch silt, and sediment?? Something to consider.
    Im inclined to think, you're overfeeding.
    If the material is catching, salts too..........

    Yeah that might be it, I never saw anyone use that stuff with perlite on bottom of container, I just thought it would be a good idea to separate them so soil cant block drainage from my pot. Would you recommend flushing my plants? Or just keep
    watering like I have?

    I cant say TBH.
    I havnt used, the material before.
    I dont think, some water would hurt, though. Should disolve salts. It'l just take time. Days.
    Be safe. Go slow.
    Good luck :peace::peace:

    if people didnt share stuff we wouldn't get better, plus...karma is a bitch and those who dont help deserve all the bugs, nute issues... remember .. help those in need and treat those as you want to be treated.

    Personally Any burn ive ever dealt with was a runoff issue...for me it was not enough runoff, now I know...what medium are you in? Maybe take out a supplement here and there , rely more on the base

    Also, using their FULL LINE might be too much..tune into your plants and see how they respond to just the base nutrients that FF offers
