    What is wrong with her?

    At first glance I thought it was nitrogen deficiency.. the bottom leaves are still green as well as the leaves at the top so it has to be an immobile deficiency, right?

    What is your PH? I will bet it's out of wack.
    Current grow:
    2-Sugar Black Rose, 2-Zkittlez 1-Gorilla Glue Auto
    Soil in 3 gallon pots. Indoors,

      When the plants get pale green its typically a nitrogen deficiency and yes, likely due to PH issues or simply not enough nutrients. watering in Soil should be 6.5 PH and remember to test the water PH after you have added the nutrients to the water.

      Yellowing leaves on the bottom of the plant is natural as it grows bigger and bigger. lack of seeing any doesn't mean everything is okely dokely....
      I hope there is an afterlife...there are a lot of friends and family I'd like to see again, one day.

        Ph of my water is always 6.5. I'm growing in kryptonite soil which is all organic and claims to have enough nutrients for an entire grow. I water when needed and let my pot dry before watering again. I top dressed with worm castings, gaia green organic all purpose and bloom boost yesterday. Hopefully it helps. I thought it was strange that the yellowing was in the middle of the plant. Nitrogen deficiency usually starts at the bottom...

          Nitrogen deficiency does not just start at the Bottom. Clearly the soil you bought is either old or it's not holding up to it's claim or worse, the PH of your water is not good for the plants to be able to absorb the nutrients from the soil.
          Either the soil has lost it's nutrients quicker than you thought or the PH tester is not properly calibrated.

          Unfortunately super soils can be great or a hassle and that's why a lot of growers opt for plain soil or coir and then add liquid nutrients. Adding them on a schedule at specific amounts means you control the whole process.

            You won't be able to darken the leaves back up in flower the plant won't take in the extra nitrogen at this point. You'll always see a bit of fading and leaves starting to die off later in flower

              Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Much appreciated! I know the damage is done, just hoping to dial in the next organic grow. My environmental conditions are really dialed in through this grow and I am very meticulous about ph levels and maintaining and calibrating my ph meter. I'll definitely top dress earlier next time and keep lights a bit higher. I don't know why it took so long for me to think of this but... It could be light stress here. This plant is the runt in the tent and I set it on a crate to even out the canopy, which raised it about 10 inches closer to the light instantly. I probably should have gradually raised it closer and allowed it to get used to it a little at a time. Anyone here ever deal with light stress from LEDs?

                Light stress is typically only the top of the plant but your problem appears to be all over the plant, A good rule is check with the manufacturer first regarding distance. Unfortunately cheap lights can be very problematic so hopefully its not that. Again its a nitrogen problem most likely
