Everything seemed to be going so well …

They both seemed great a day or so ago. Leaves are developing broad brown/rusty splotches? Any ideas?


Looks like you dripped some water on it while watering. Then your lights lensed the drops, like a magnifying glass. Nothing to worry about. Any time you get water on em, just dab it up with some TP or napkin.

Defoliate any overlapping leaves. Those will create moisture drops where touching. Also, looks to be over watered a bit. Heavy drooping leaves full of water weight.

Edit: There is a chance that it could also be Boron deficient. Solve the above first. If it continues to develop, tag me for a look and further diagnosis.


First 2 pictures to me look like the beginning of ph lockout the 2nd pic of the smaller plant looks over watered


Is that a blended medium of coco and soil?? Super tight node spacing and like @Budbrother mentioned with the leaves sweating on each other. Raising your light height and intensity can promote better node spacing and air circulation. What’s your watering and feeding routine…PH and PPMS :love_you_gesture:
