Any opinions on these funky looking / corkscrewing new top leaves? It seems to be a recurring theme in my two grows.

Is it zinc?

Thanks everyone

Leaves. Twisted

How's your room.on fans and exhaust lines? I know having air flowing nicely around the buds are important, but if a fan is blowing to strong or pointed at the plant it can cause almost a wind burn, which can twist and warp leaves but can make them look like a deficiency or toxicity. I see you're using LEDs and that they're less that 10in. Away, light/heat burn can not only cause the twisted growth but it can also discolor new growth as well.
I hope you find a good fix.
Happy growing

Yout plant is healthy as hell bro ! I don't think she's ineed of anything and I truly can't see any signs of problem ! You can adjust your setup ( fan , light ) likes the others already told you !

Hi @BillMonroe! Hard to say with the pictures you provided but in this situation I would try 2 things : 1) increase the distance between the light and the canopy, these new growth might be under light stress. 2) reinforce the airflow with a small rotating fan, these new growths might be searching for air. Hope this helps, keep us up-to-date and happy growing! :facepunch:

From what I have look on your diary, light is too close. Honestly I’ve never seen a proper real zinc deficiency because there’s no more zinc in the soil ... particularly in soil bro !

The only thing i could say is maybe lower your nutrients to 1ml/l for a week, leaves look full of nitrogen... Maybe a beginning of nut burn..
