What’s up guys! So I had been using CalMag with Bloom Nutes and Bloom Booster up until beginning of week 4. Noticed some leaves started to get a little shiny, and just a little tip burn, nothing serious so I cut out CalMag. I’m just wondering, I noticed all my girls have reddish stems, mainly the stems attached to the fan leaves but no red veins or anything like that. I’ve read some stuff and I’m finding articles saying it could be a Mg deficiency or I need to beef up the PK. Unfortunately, I fell for the Nukeheads crap and bought some of their Nutes. Although there’s so much negative publicity my plants seems to be doing just fine. I wanted to know, since I noticed some N toxicity (few shiny fan leaves) and my Bloom nutes ratio is 10-52-10 and Bloom booster 0-50-30.. should I reduce the Bloom Nutes and Increase the Bloom booster. Or will the bloom nutes be okay since I cut out CalMag. Im asking this because I want to take care of the red stem problem. I’m growing Wifi OG and Northern Lights..not sure if the problem could be from genetics. Overall plants look pretty good. Using FFOF soil, Nukeheads Uranium and Plutonium nutes, Botanicare CalMag, Grotek Monster Bloom, FWF schedule. Always pH to 6.5.

WAY, WAY too much P&K!
N is to much also. The high N is why the plants haven't completely turned yellow and croaked out from the P...

Work the plant and not the stems. I mean learn to read the leaves - from new growth down.
You start working a plant due to some "stem issue" you see. You'll get into trouble fast!

You should note very carefully here!
High K and N will seriously reduce THC production!
High P will make the plant "finish" to early.... It'll simply turn yellow from the bottom up wither and die.

FYI some plants naturally have red stems, it might not even be an issue. I've got one purp going now with some color on the stem and leaves already, other three strains look fine, all green. I'm not saying it's not a nutrient issue in your case, just that it might not be.
