    I have 8 plants going under 2 600’s and am three weeks into flower. I use a small boy for water,always water at 6.2-6.5PH and until recently was not adding much nutrients. I have been having issues this past week with about 5 different plants.tested run off today on all. PPM ranged from 400-800 and ph was 6.4-6.6 on all.

    looks like you should have started feeding a little earlier. they need some nutes when they go into 12/12.
    they're building a lot of new growth, and if you don't feed them, they'll eat themselves to sustain it.
    now that they're actively flowering, they don't have a lot of reserves to draw on, so they're still eating themselves.
    they also look a little calcium and mag deficient, i'd give them a half strength dose of nutes, with a couple of ml per gallon of cal-mag added

    Sounds (looks) more nute deficiency than lockout/PH.
    What's the medium?

    Whats the ppm going into the pot. Sounds like/ looks under fed or root issues if you have been over watering them. You are using a microbe product right??

    What above poster said, more nutes, better ph stability, saying between 6.2 and whatever is no good, it's important to stay at a certain place, 6.2 is too low imo, if soilless mix 6.5 is where you want to be. Some strains hate ph movement, some don't care if it's 6 all the time. Point I'm making is be accurate, every problem you have means less and less yield and quality, more stress etc

    I agree you're starving them. When you switched to 12/12 did you also change your nutrients to a flowering mix ?

    Didn’t start using them until flower. They didn’t show signs they needed food

    So you want to give them transition nutrients for at least a couple weeks when you switch to 12/12

    example: if you're feeding them 3 part in veg, 3-2-1 (nitrogen being 3)

    For the first two weeks or so depending on the plant begin feeding them a 2-2-2 blend to transition them into flower.

    Then after 2 to 4 weeks of 12/12 change to 3-2-1 flower mixture for best results

    You won't have the early yellowing and a lot of the other issues caused by switching to flowering nutes too early!

    also you should be feeding straight through, from 2 to 4 weeks in veg (unless you're using some super soil?) at least a % of the nutrients recommended by the manufacturer, hope this helps ?
    -good luck!

    *also keep pH steady at 6.5 for best results!

    OK. Good soil but not a big initial charge.
    Works great with liquid nutes though.
    I think you underfed.
    I like Beachwalkers advice (except the flowering ratio should be 1-2-3).

    Flowering nutrients example would be 3-2-1, with nitrogen being 1, the opposite of the veg example given above.

    Veg = 3n/2p/1k

    Transition = 2-2-2

    Flower = 3k/2p/1n

    Never seen it put that way.
    I think most people know N-P-K in that order.

    I hear you, I started this back in the mid-eighties, and without the internet I kind of developed my own system & terminology, that's why I came back to break it down for clarity, thanks for pointing that out
