I have heard that this can be caused by low trace elements. I'd suggest upping your trace levels for 3 weeks and seeing what effect it has. Maybe add 50% more. Lets see what other suggestions you get!...

hi Mfcphil,

All i could put it down to was a weaker plant strain, i think i did separate the specimen as an experiment, but it just melted away.

regards,

Dan.

Was it found to be a lack of anything on your part? Ferts I mean

I have five plantlets showing the same white leaves....They were all bought from the same outlet at the same time.

I had the same, upped my trace and it cleared.

I will add that I was cutting back to see how little I needed to put in.

Do you add dry ferts or do you make up a solution?
How much do you use

40 UK Gallon tank I do the following.

Potassium Nitrate
20g to 500ml for the solution
dosage = 25ml 6 times per week
ppm 32.63

Potassium Phosphate
3g to 500ml for the solution
dosage = 25ml 6 times per week
ppm 4.30

Trace
5g to 250ml for the solution
dosage = 10ml 6 times per week
ppm 6.10

Mon - dose
Tue - dose
Wed - dose
Thur - dose
Fri - dose
Sat -dose
Sun - water change

If this is wrong could do with pointing in the right direction

Already giving 10ml per day

Bought it from Fluid Sensor

Bottle simply called trace....If I wanted to keep the amount to 10ml in the dose how much Trace do I need in the original 250ml
