    Potassium Deficiency

    911!!! I think I might have a case of Potassium Deficiency I looked up system and I'm pretty sure I'm reading what to do any other suggestions

    Now to find out why.
    They look green and healthy otherwise.
    Perhaps the K is in the mix and the plant can't take it up. Number one suspect is always PH.

    P.S. No matter what you do, that leaf will continue to get worse and finally fall off or get taken off.

    what I have learned so far:
    environment maters more than nutrients
    at least a dab of nutrients in every watering
    effective flushing before harvest is critical to quality

            I read the system checker and it told me to pick the spotted leaves so it didn't spread is that correct Mr.furley

              It's not a disease, it's a deficiency. The plant needs more potassium than it is getting, and that is all that is wrong.
              The issue is, that just because it is not up taking enough K. Could be that it needs more feed, or could be that there is enough in the root zone now and the plant can't process it.
              Make sure your PH is right and go from there.

                  how is it looking today?
                  K is a mobile element. When the plant runs short of K it will take whatever the older, lower leaves have and move it up for the newer growth. So, in order to understand if the problem is solved or not, we are looking to see if the older, lower leaves, that were not affected before, are still healthy.
                  Basically, all we need to do is help in stop getting worse, and we will have won.

                Could also be a lock-out be sure you have all your facts straight before your final diagnosis could mess up the plant even worse ..how much water did you give the plant? Was the water phd? Was it enough water was it to little ..did you give nutes was it the proper frequency does your soil have proper drainage ..was the soil you transplanted into the same soil does the soil have nutes are you adding nutes ..could be a combo of issues including nitrogen cal-mag and phos.i don't know why they call it miracle grow ..

                  Hey now dont knock the MG lol i used it my 2nd grow with ok results ordering the gh trio now and graduated to coco this time. Greengringo is correct though you could be over dueing the nuits causing lockout which will req you to flush the soil out and try lower dose of what your using or could simply be a ph swing so k cant be took up the roots but dont stress to much like other guy said its a mobile nuit you cant reverse that leaf to green and vibrant but you can prevent more from turning like it did. Gl hope got it under control.

                  Setup looks perfect. The pot is lacking. No airflow to the soil. Get a fabric pot. Mine is made of rcycled bottles.

                    Thank you I'm on it my question is how do I get the ph levels right they have stuff for that it's crazy I work with pool chemicals so PH up and PH down so much you need for a plant just like a pool lol

                      Yup, just lke a pool. Balance the ph before you add it to the plant. I have not done that because i am experimenting if i can do a whole grow without messing with it. So far its working.

                      Its an acid base thing, adding or removing hydrogen ions. If the shit you add has a buffer in it, thats not good
