Any ideas guys?

3ml growers ark per litre, coco , 3 litre pots , due a pot up.
Growth is good, roots have come along a lot since my last disaster.
ph around 5.9 - 6.
temps good.

edit - still in veg period. Hand watering although I did submerge the pots in a bucket last night.

Looks like mag deficiency to me. personally I would add some epsom salts to the next feed and see if it improves. Green veins and yellow leaves is mag def, yellow leaves and veins is N deficiency is what I was told + coco loves Mag and cal!

Epsom salts will give you the mag but there is no calcium in it.

You gottta check the content on your regular feed and see how much more might be required.

What nutes are you using??

Do you have hard water / soft water / RO water?

You could just suck it and see. experiment by adding a gram or 2 per gallon of feed.

Strange one.

I assume your an accomplished grower so all the basics will have been checked.

Have you ever had Mag issues before? I have fairly hard water and never had cal/mag issues.

First time on these nutes?

I'm venturing into coco myself at the moment, week 4 flower now.

I was initially keeping Ph at 6-6.2 but was showing some N defficiency at around week 4 veg.

On another forum Green Ninja told me to do drop it to 5.5-5.7 in veg and they coloured up and look very healthy now.

I did this even though the PM+ chart says 5.8-6.0

I use drippers and a wilma big4. I think the ideal PH range for coco stays the same whether your passive or active.

It may not be just N being locked out (as i'm sure your aware, re PH flucts), but i'm sure the correct PH range will help ballance the mixture.

N is uptaking better at a lower ec ie around 5.6-5.8, does look like mag def tho from the pics a heaped tablespoon to10 litres water is ideal. :yinyang:
