LED's cause bud to take in Mg and Ca differently???

Sounds like you're using soil as simply a medium for adding ferts. I won't derail this nice thread beyond this post, but if the plant and microbes were allowed to control the soil, the pH measuring, deficiency conversations, etc all go away. Build the soil properly from the start, and most just add water. Maybe some castings as you go.

You can use RO water, which is essentially rain water

Again, sorry for the intrusion.

Even though I don't really do soil anymore, I totally agree with this.

With a good soil, you shouldn't have any deficiencies even without feeding for weeks or even months.

Build your soil right, and do not use nitrate salts, only ammonical/urea forms of N.

If you want to use hydro nutes, stop using soil and grow hydroponics correctly.

What hydro nutes? Calmag? I didn't realize calmag is hydro only if that's what you're saying. I've see plenty of people add calmag to RO water in soil grows. I did put dolomite lime in my soil and used plain water up until flower.

Shit man Just saw you asked me a question. Cal mag should be going with the nutes. I always adjusted feed schedules to levels so that I feed every watering using RO. Before that using tap water and feeding every other watering. You will be fine using it with in between waterings too.

Okay cool, I'm thinking its just that, I'm not giving it enough calcium. Not salt build up or lock out.
