Everything seemed to be going good…

This condition has began to spread. I just flushed with a gallon of distilled water to see if it helps. Could this be a fungus? Should I remove the leaves?

Ahh I think I see the problem your using a cheap ph meter that’s probably not calibrated right, your probably actually giving them 7-7.5 water and I think it’s giving you cal mag absorption issues


I was thinking about getting a better one.

I have calibrated it 3 times so far to keep it accurate. It was mentioned my ppm is so low you can’t ph my tap water.

Have you fed any nutrients? Or only what’s in the soil?

No nutrients. Just fox farms ocean forest mixed with a 1/4 happy frog. Transplanted to 3 gallon pots a week and half ago from solo cups with just happy frog. I have the fox farm trio and cal-mag on hand but never even opened.

Spots look like ca def

One thing I see is on one leaf has multiple water droplets on the tip of one leaf.

It’s pH or pests. Most likely pH. Because 62ppm would be near impossible to pH. Your mixture of soil should feed all the way to flower. 62ppm water would need no adjustments, as it wouldn’t hold them and a cheap pH meter would lie to you. So all the pH down is going straight to the root zone.

Your water would take on the pH of your medium. Which has three kinds of lime in it and the start of a rhizosphere. So if you want to adjust pH. You need to bring that ppm up above 100. Closer to 150. The less ppm the harder to adjust. Altho you shouldn’t need to at untill you add nutrients in flower. As long as there is no chlorine in the water. I don’t see why it wouldn’t be water only till flower.

A 50/50 would get you to flower. At 75% OF and 25% HF it may even take you a little further.

I’m definitely going to do what you said about the water and leaving it out for the 24hours. Should I just use a different water source?

The droplets are from the distilled water I used to flush. Probably got them wet I’ll be more careful about that.

I tested the cold water from the tap I have sitting out and it’s 49 ppm.
