I’ve been away for couple weeks and they dont look bad but they don’t look good. I’m concerned that what I thought was an iron or manganese def that I’m wrong. They haven’t been watered since I left and are still wet from all the rain and heavy morning dews we have here. Have a feeling that whatever the def is I need to worry less about it then mould. Mould is an unfortunate part of growing here and this will be a bad year for it. I have a few plants that are blueberry crosses almost fully lost to mould so I assume I need to defoliate heavily but with my girls not looking really 100% healthy it’s not very smart to stress them further. This week I think it will be 3/4 nutes with minimal water and hope for the best. I’ll defoliate this weekend hopefully and get them to come around. Oh well it’s the pain in the ass part of growing outdoors u take ur hits and live with them. Hope others are having better mid flower than me

Sorry brother your at the mercy of mother nature. I guess your area hasn't gotten the memo on the whole global warming thing yet. Yes you have deficiencies they are being directly caused by the extreme low nighttime temperatures. The plants are unable to properly absorb nutrients through their roots at these temps. The leaves are also unable to move the carbohydrates through their leaves during the photosynthesis process hence you have purple fall colors coming out in certain leaves a bit prematurely. Even foliage spraying nutes won't help. Only thing you can do is hope for a month of Indian Summer to come around. I've read a lot of diaries with similar issues in the far northern areas. If it were me I would build a cold frame out of 1 x4 pine and wrap clear plastic around it then screw wood lathe to hold the plastic in place.Then stake it to the ground. You can probably get her up several degrees at night. Open her up in the day time. Then mulch the root zone with a heavy layer of hay. Hope things warm up for you.:pray:https://www.alchimiaweb.com/blogen/the-cold-during-a-cannabis-plant-crop/

I think it's zinc. Zinc Deficiency Zinc deficiency on cannabis plants cause the top leaves to turn yellow Problem: With a cannabis zinc deficiency, younger leaves start yellowing in between the veins. Leaf tips get discolored and start dying. the leaves may take on a unique banded appearance and the plant may stop growing vertically. There may be much less space between new nodes, which can cause new leaves to start bunching together. If the plant is budding, its flowers may stop growing or even start dying if the problem isn’t corrected. This cannabis plant is showing sings of a zinc deficiencyThis marijuana plant is showing signs of a zinc deficiency in it's new growthThis info-graphic contains more information about the importance of zinc and your marijuana grow Solution For Cannabis Zinc Deficiency Note: Sometimes a cannabis zinc deficiency (like all deficiencies) can be triggered by stressful conditions and may clear up on its own after the period of stress is over. However, to minimize damage it’s important to react to any growing problem as quickly as possible, especially in the flowering stage. 1.) Adjust pH to Correct Range The most common reason growers will see a zinc deficiency is when the pH at the roots is too high. Zinc tends to get locked at at higher pH levels, and is better absorbed by the plant in a more acidic root environment. If you suspect your growing cannabis plant has a zinc deficiency due to too-high pH, flush your system with clean, pH’d water. This will remove any nutrient salts that may be affecting the uptake of zinc and help restore pH to the proper levels.. In soil, zinc is best absorbed by the roots in the 6.0 – 6.5 pH range (although it’s generally recommended for soil growers to keep pH in the 6.0-7.0 range, zinc tends to be absorbed better on the lower side) In hydro, zinc is best absorbed by the roots in the 5.5 – 6.0 pH range (although it’s generally recommended for hydro growers to keep pH in the 5.5-6.5 range, zinc tends to be absorbed better on the lower side) Learn how to manage your pH for growing cannabis. 2.) Give the Right Nutrients The truth is, most cannabis growers don’t need to add more zinc in response to a zinc deficiency! In fact, most growers have actually already given plenty of zinc to their cannabis plants since it is found abundantly in most tap water. If you’re using quality soil or cannabis-friendly nutrients, you probably don’t need to worry about adding more zinc. In general, zinc deficiencies are more likely to appear when a grower is using heavily filtered or reverse osmisis (RO) water to feed plants since any zinc has been removed, but pH is a much more common reason growers see zinc deficiencies in their cannabis plants. 3.) Take Good Care of the Roots Zinc deficiencies can show up with the plant is having root problems or if the plant is overwatered, even if the pH is right and the zinc is there. Proper watering practices help plants grow healthy and avoid a host of problems! 4.) Watch for Recovery After going through all the above steps, watch to make sure that the zinc deficiency starts to clear up within a few days to a week or so. The damaged leaves may not recover completely, but you know you’re in the clear when you stop seeing symptoms on new leaves

Thanks for the reply @Philindicus. Yes your right about at mother nature's mercy. I have been feeding light throughout the entire grow and was worried with cold weather I may have def show up. Covering them isn't really an option ground is all bed rock so nothing can be secured down. I going to feed them a little stronger this week. I'm always a less is more but sometimes less is not enough. ......

That's a good question, I'm worried about frost for my outdoor plants too.

You might want to add some close up pictures so people can see better and provide some suggestions. Just a thought. They do look huge though.
