Spots on 1 out of 10 plants. Please help!!

  1. Hey what's up everybody,

    Background Info:

    System: Ebb&Flow, 1 Reservoir and 1 table
    Nutrients: Cal Mag, Advanced Nutrients Micro, Grow, Bloom, B52, Voodoo Juice

    The seeds were dropped on July 4 which puts them just over 2 weeks old. This one plant started developing spots on established leaves so I decided to flush, and see what happens. I thought it might have been a calcium magnesium issue because I had not been using Cal Mag and I simply added 2 tsp of Epsom salt to my 15 gal res. That didn't help. In fact, it made the spots worse. So then I flushed (once total) with a salt remover and changed the water in the rez. I then made a foliar spray and sprayed the leaves with low concentrations of cal mag and sprayed the shit out of them. They really seemed to like it. The only issue, it looks like these spots are getting worse.

    Any ideas?

  5. Yeah I'm pretty sure what happened is when I did the foliar spray, the water droplets acted as a magnifying glass and burned little holes in my leaves. Ever since I started shaking (barely) to remove the larger drops, I havent had any issues :)

    But I have another issue now with another plant. I'm not at home so I can't post a picture, but basically, the stem below the cotyledons is flimsy AF but the stem above is bustling, thick, and thriving. Any idea why that is? Does it have to do with pH/EC when the seed is first sprouting? I'm thinking I'll take a razor and shave off the outer layer of that part of the stem, hit it with some rooting gel, and the put a section of starter plug around it so all of that stem starts producing roots. What do you think?
  6. hi .mate ,,what ever you do ,,DO NOT Take A Razor and hit the stem with rooting gel ,,leave the stem well alone ,you can build up growing medium up around the stem ,,not to wet just damp at most it will soon grow roots ,no need to take the drastic action ,,,mac,
