I've got a plant just about exactly like yours about the same age too that seems to have stalled in growing. I don't have as much discoloration as you but if I didn't know you weren't me I'd say it's the same plant lol

What do you mean by "light soil mix"  That tells be nothing.


But let me make a guess.  Your soil probably has in it, and you're feeding on top of it, this thus creating a nutrient toxic environment. 

IF that's the case, I recommend flushing with phd water

Woah woah woah, wait.  Did you use the light mix, or the all mix?  They are two completely different soils.


If you used All Mix, you're over fertilizing.

Overall the growth rate is good and they have a healthy green color so I wouldn't worry too much about it at this point. Sometimes plants are a bit finicky in veg but end up doing just fine in flower.

thanks guys i used the bio bizz light mix.

i have since done a test since i figured it must be a lack of nutrients.

i got pure blend pro bloom as a nutrient and cal mag as a supplement on 2 of the plants

on the other two i used a gram of epsom salt and and .75 of a teaspoon of miracle grow ( per gallon)

all four plants have flourished since adding nutrients and are less discolored although still not without streaks on the new leaves

the miracle grow epson salt combo seems to be doing much better than the pure blend/ cal mag. 

i just ordered a ppm/eu meter to make sure im adding the right amounts.
