Crispy dry leaf tips

Some tips of my leaves have dried out and crumble to the touch. The plants are otherwise healthy, I’m going easy on the nutes, keeping temps at root level above 20 degrees, not overwatering, etc.

 

however I did have a moment of madness just over a week ago when I tried to combat the freezing temps by directing a heat blower on them which resulted in ‘burning’ a few leaves. Could these crispy leaves be fallout from this mistake or something else?

 

5 weeks in to flower, in soil.

When you used the heat blower, did the leaves affected canoe up and show signs of heat stress or have they just started to brown and crumble straight away? Also did the browning start on the fringes or start putting out brown spots over the leaves? it could be ph fluctuations, what is the ph of the solution your feeding them and what is the run off saying once collected at the bottom?

If there showing signs of discolouring as well then it could be a deficiency as you did mention you was going easy on the nutes. Whats your PPM or EC?

They browned up at the ends after canoeing up. It’s the leaves at the top which would have been directly in line with the blower. I suppose my question is will this damage their growth. It doesn’t look too bad now but....

 

if only I could figure out how to attach a photo!

I did the same other day pal though mine are vegging. Had 3leaf tips go the same as you describe and it was from the heater as you say with them crumbling too the touch. I've used tie wraps on my tent poles so it's near roof level with a fan behind it blowing the air around no more tips like you describe. Those things kick out some serious heat bets to keep em away as much as possible if possible.
