Hi all i have 2 tangie and 2 stardog in veg about for about 4 weeks 

one of the stardog is getting brown speckles and a few leaves are starting to curl up 

this started when they were in the small pots, i put them in the auto pots four days ago 

i don't think it's heat or light burn as all the others are fine ive got a lumatek 600 pro let at 50cm on 50% atm

feeding canna a+b rizotonic at 1.2 ec

ive read that it maybe a calcium problem but i can't understand why its only one that's doing this 

 

any ideas guys ?????large.IMG_2516.JPGlarge.IMG_7327.JPGlarge.IMG_8024.JPG

Have you got an oscillating fan in there?

 

It looks like when you get water building up on the leaves from transpiration, then they get burnt by the light. I don;t think that's Ca def, that would be just near the top I think. 

 

 

edit-I'd get those electrics off the floor :ohmygod:

The coco looks really dry in places, when in the autopot pots I always hand water for a week or so before using the trays. 

Looks like they may have dried out in the past?

@Gooey How's your day and night temps? RH? Hard or soft water? What pH are you going in at?

 

Was the coco permanently wet when they were rooting in the small pots?

Every Ca problem I've had starts from the bottom, and usually the result of transpiration issues.

Check your run off ec.  They look starving.  If your run off is a fair bit lower than what's going in, that's the problem.  You're smashing them with loads of ppf and they can't access enough food.

The temp is 26 all the time on a thermometer humidity is on 50 

and yeah i think they were always wet in the small pots and the ec was about 0.8

our water is soft background ec is 0.2

Well my lights were on 75% when they went in in the small pots then when they went in the autopots i turned them down to 50%

so they could of been getting to much light but i cant work out why its only happening to one plant
