That looks like a possible cal/mag defficiancy. Thats not nute burn though. Also stop removing leaves unless they are completely dead and fall off. IME removing leaves when you have a defficiancy causes the problem to to spread to the other leaves faster. The reason the leaves are dieing off is the plant is pulling the nutrients it needs from the lower leaves and giving the nutes to the new growth. I use cal/mag withevery watering once they are past the seedling stage.

The brown leaf looks a little like you may have spilled the water on her when watering? The others...not sure. How far along is the plant? What's your normal watering habits?

Scotsman, i'm not too sure about molasses... it will give your plant some cal/mag but it has to feed the bacteria first and be broke down in to a usable substance for the plant. In other words it takes time to bounce back. I use cal/mag by botonicare and it starts working almost instantly.

Yes, molasses feeds the soil, not the plant. I also don't think molasses will do much for you unless you're growing organic....I could be mistaken.

im in 12/12 10 days now water normaly every 3 days depends really. i let them dry out a little then water but normaly every 3 days,
watered with B' cuzz nutes for hydro was told you can use hydro nutes on soil, i used nutrition & booster & stimulator with molases i used it before in smaller dosage in the watering before which would be 6 days ago now with no ill effects, 1 tbls of molas per galon and as i said all other plants are doing fine

If these plants are all from seed they can/will have different nute requirements.

I've never used that nute line but if you're useing chemical nutes then i would suggest using a chemical cal/mag not organic.

I've not heard hydro nutes can be used in soil, doesn't even make sense that they'd make 2 types then? I'd be looking for soil nutes....

Almost all nutes say they are for hydro now a days. I use the FF trio and they all say they are for hydro applications. But technickly(sp?) i am doing hydro. there is no dirt in my medium, just because the roots are'nt under water the entire time does'nt mean its not hydro.

FF sells 2 types, one for hydro and one for soil...you have the hydro mix. I doubt highly the two mixes are the same, and I have no doubt the soil nutes have things only good in soil while the hydro nutes has stuff beneficial to hydro. I could be way off, but seems obvious.

I am addressing Scotsman's comment where he said he was using hydro nutes for soil. I doubt seriously they're compatible, so you may want to look into it before going on!

As far as watering, sounds like you're doing fairly well...water them fully, then let dry out pretty good before watering again.

Are you positive of this?? I am reading the B'cuzz site and see nothing that says this. I do see they offer both soil and hydro nutes though....

Read the labels from the other 2 bottles...Grow Big doesn't say this (and I don't have the third bottle with me). My guess is that that particular part of the trio will work with both, the rest won't. This is why they sell 2 types.

think il probably leave of the nutes in all honesty and go with water and molas from now to harvest i mixed in some bone meal / blood fish & bone into the soil so i think with that and the molas that should be enough to see them ok what do you guys think? as i only got the nutes in the last week or so and plants have done fine this far.

It's pretty early to rely on the plant to be fed enough now to make it through, your gals will likely starve and your harvest will suffer....
