What are you growing in? soil/coco etc and what (if any) are you feeding? Pics would be helpful. Also, what type of water are you using?

Can't help you there. Perhaps you could describe the deficiencies in more detail and include exactly what type of soil you're in, what your water source is and your watering methods. Based on the description of your set up, I'd say we can rule out humidity, air flow and temps.  I wouldn't have thought that light distance could cause the symptoms you're describing.  Hopefully some other members will chime in soon too.

Ah OK. Others may disagree but that's not really the best soil for cannabis.  It could be causing you a PH issue.  Although you're putting in the correct PH, you may find that it's coming out at a different value so check the run off.  There are several natural and organic amendments, such as Dolomite Lime which will stabilise you PH. At 2-3 weeks old I assume you're yet to pot up to final pots. Before potting up it might be a good idea to get yourself down to your local hydro shop and get some soil more appropriate for cannabis. There are some great soils like 'Plant Magic' and many others.

Also, if you're growing in compost, I expect you're trying to keep the beneficial organisms in the medium alive. Therefore, synthetic PH up/down works against this. It usually isn't really necessary to PH in soil providing your water is within reasonable range.

i grow in compost, after transplant last pot up it could take 4 days or more before they need feeding, you need let the pot dry out some, I feed half strength grow to start with, i'm in a soft water area so I start feeding cal/mag also from week 1

Yep, compost is perfectly good for growing but I suggest eliminating the obvious first. If your run off is outside normal parameters, get the PH sorted. If it's fine then they're probably just hungry for something. Remember, feed the soil and the soil will feed the plants.  Also as 'Hash 72' said, give you pots a good wet/dry cycle when top watering.

Thanks for the link mate after reading this I’m off to my local hydro shop tomorrow to pick some plant magic up and re pot I think just to make sure..the only reason I used the verve is because I read a few had used it and had great results from it but I guess everyone is different ... thanks for your help again guys I’ll let you know how I get on

 That thread is 2 years old. Verve has come out very well in the Which compost trials for 2018. Here 

@Newbie 18

I've been using it this time round and it seems ok, no real problems other than of my own making. Adding perlite and vermiculite will bulk out the compost and means you will have to start feeding the plants sooner. As JJJ says, there's no need to pH in compost unless you have real water problems, i suspect they might be hungry. Better if you had some pics to look at. Hope that helps!

Sorry I didn't realise how old the article was. All I can say is that from personal experience I've had a lot more success using brands recommended by the hydro stores. I started out using cheaper soils and composts and had a hell of a time keeping up with the subsequent deficiencies.  I'd rather spend a few more tokens and get something specifically put together for these kind of plants. Everyone has their own style of growing and I'm glad the Verve is working out for you 'Seasick Steve'. Happy growing.
