Don’t have any idea what’s wrong with my :baby::dizzy_face:. Is it a deficiency?

That is most certainly nutrient burn from excess use of nutrients. At this stage in development you don’t need to add any more nutrients to your soil. Just add dress water. The plant is too young and will not absorb the nutrients that you have added to the souls and instead ends up with excess salts that build up around the roots. These salts will dry out the roots and burn your plants leaf tips. Firstly let your pot dry out and then add plain water. Do this until you have a few sets of fan leaves and about 3-4 modes on the plant. Then I would start with a 1/4 feeding of the manufactures recommended dosage. Each week you can up the dose until your in line with the manufactures recomendation or until you start experiencing nute burn again. Use the vegitative phase to help dial in your plants nutrients so that you don’t have this problem in flower. I will be around to keep an eye on your grow. Good luck!

Hey there yea excess nutes at this stage not necessary. Also you've got a powerful light, how many hours is it getting? I had a plant get burnt tops because I left it under the light for 24 hours, the seedling did not like this, it wasnt receiving nutrients so i know it was lighting...and it looked exactly like yours. But then it repaired. :green_heart::seedling::flag-us:

Hi there! It's not a deficiency, it's an excess. Burnt tips are the first sign of a nutrients burn. Calm down on nutrients, such young baby don't need anything but roots stimulator, water, and much love. But I think there is more : your soil looks really wet, you probably over-watered your baby. As an emergency move, I'd recommend to transplant her into a bigger container with fresh (and light) soil, water once the plant is in the new pot, with ~20% of the container's capacity. Then let it dry and see how it goes. I'll be around, keep us up-to-date so we can help you adjusting your parameters, and happy growing!

I also think you have nutrient excess seen as burnt leaf tips (do I see a Miracle Grow slow release pellet in the first pic?). Also, the leaves look a bit cold. Media temperature is very important to enable the plant to grow with vigor. When they grow with vigour, they use more nutes and thus have less chance of nute burn. So try to warm the media up (heat mat) and just feed plain water at 22-24c as cooler water will also lower the temp of the media and slow growth.

Nutrients burns

for me it is excess of nutrients ... remember that in its first week the earth already has nutrients ... you should put half of the nutrients specified by advance nutrients
