hi man you have PK deficiency because the nutrient ratio is incorrect : cut out the grow and keep the bloom and it will stop spreading. You can see the PK deficiency from the edges getting burned in that way. So the proportion of nutrients is also important not just PPM you want something like NPK 1:3:3 so the plant can get the PK. get it ? PPM goes up and down that's normal, even during the course of a day and between day time and night time PPM will shift one way or another. that's not the problem. Hope this helps ! :rocket:

Hey there, so anytime i see someone with a nice easy dose of a well rounded nutrient schedule like yours having these various problems, I dont think there's a lack of nutrients, they're there, but unavailable or inaccessible. If it were me I'd possibly flush your medium but amp up your ph slightly into the 6 range. Also just a few thoughts, hows your copper intake? How far away are your lights? Do you see any pests present like fungus gnats which can cause this bleached white colored look. Or are fungus gnats not typically a problem when doing hydro?
I hope we could all offer some suggestions to prod you in the right direction. Good luck and happy growing.:v:

Id say you have a a mix of 3 things here , firstly I'd like to address the slight nitrogen deficiency you have happen here . You can see the leaves are really light in green and they are turning yellow this is most likely the culprit . Secondly you are going to run into PK problems being that you are at the very start of flowering and your essentially still feeding it your veg line up . I would orient the solution to be more bloom at this time . You wanna give them a good PK spike right at the start of flowering so it helps facilitate the transition . I will also promote stronger healthier bud sites . Last but not least your going to want to trim away all the dead and really damaged leaves . This will prevent any unwanted invaders from making themselves a nice home with plenty of food to snack on as well as promote new vigorous growth . The plant will think its being grazed by a deer or another animal and will kick itself into overdrive to make up for what has been taken and then some . IF you choose to do this don't take to many at once start of slow take 2-3 wait a few days to see how your plant reacts and then repeat the process if necessary until you have what you're looking for . Other then that your doing a real good job with this grow and your looking lined up to have some nice tasty medicine ! I hope the information that I've provided here helps you understand a bit more about whats going on with your plant and the very simple way to fix it :) - Happy Growing!
