Hi, can somebody with look at my week 6 pics and tell me if this looks like light burn, wind burn or a nutrient issue?
I thought initially that it was a nutrient lockout from watering error, but the worst leaves are all on one side. This leads me to wind or light instead.

Looking at your previous weeks, everything was going ok, if a little heavy on nitrogen (dark leaves) and some clawing. That the issue appeared so quick points to a combination of nute burn / lockout. What you need to do is get distilled water, enough for a thorough flush, twice the pot volume should do, so 20 liters or so, then let the plant recover without feeding for at least 1 week. As for your water source, it should have an EC / PPM of 0.4 to 0.5 EC (200 to 250 PPM), above that and it's not good for your plant, you will always risk lockouts and burns using it; below that and it needs calcium and magnesium additive. An EC / PPM meter although optional in soil, makes your life as a grower easier as it takes the guessing out of feeding. For future reference, do not feed more than once a week; feeding in soil, let the plant consume what's on the soil, only start feeding when the first signs of deficiencies appear, not before, since while a slight deficiency will not impair flowering and yield, a burn can be disastrous. Good luck
