Today one of my cannabis plants looks like it has a nutrient deficiency. I have previously had yellowing of the leaves on this plant so I add a little calcium and magnesium to every feed and the yellowing has not returned. At first glance of the plants leaves I thought I had spilt a light brown substance on the leaves and I tried to wipe the blades of the leaves clean. The small dots did not rub from the blades of the leaves. After a more thorough inspection there were a few more affected leaves that had the same browning, only it was around the margins of the blades of the leaves.

So I have a healthy green plant that has 10-15 leaves with brown marks appearing. A few blades have 1-5 small dots and the others have a browning around the margins of the blades of the leaves.

I can only think of calcium manganese or something else is lacking. I have never seen this occur from nutrient burn but I am not ruling it out.

I cannot take any photos for another 1-2 hours but I wanted to ask someone in these forums in the meantime just in case someone had an idea from reading this.
