Ok this plant has been in flowering for 3 and a bit weeks.. and 2 days ago it started to get these brown spots on it.. my first thought was that the light was too close to it.. but the spots on the plant are not even on the part of the plant that is closest to the light.. and its sister plant which is very similar in size and the exact same strain is doing fine.. and its even closer to the light.. these are the spots.. any help would be greatly appreciated.. oh and i use a 430w HPS about 9" away from the tips.. and i use Botanicare Pro-Bloom every other water ( every 4 days ) and they sit at about 82-88 degrees during the day

Honestly hard to say, I was comparing your ferts to the ones that I use and see what we came up with. I am by no means a expert but we defently are not using the same amounts...

Mine has boron, copper, iron, manganese, zinc, also....
