Iron defeciencies can be due to both innefecient levels or excess as well as pH and EC factors. It's more predominantly seen like so when exposed to drought.
no offense but all websites and people referring to iron def do not show those issues as a visual ?
Example

my opinion by seeing your pics and where the leafs ar
calcium deficiency def looks like that and also one of the hardest to be intaked and a bitch to every plant that needs a lot.. like cannabis



if it was a outdoor plant I would ask do you see certain plants closet to that or other veggies have that leaf issue? If yes on a outdoor I would say it could even be septoria



similar but the calcium def looks more like your issues and being indoors

@BH just did my mind day inspection and it would appear the plant downwind is showing some of the same issues, as is the one on the other side, scoped again and definitely not bugs, as for fixing the cal deficiency I've got cal nit on hand from Jack's I can apply some at small doses, the first batch of soil I mixed up was before I started adding in the gypsum and oyster shell, it was just the elevated organics veg and bloom mixed at the recommended dose, since I'm doing organics now I'm wondering if I could water in some gypsum I've got 50lbs of solution grade, also have oyster shell on hand but honestly this is the first speed bump of many I'm sure since switching over to soil, I'll get some better pics up in a bit, it's definitely getting bad on the auto but shes still trying lol20210515_123752.jpg

all those organic things like gypsum and oyster take time , along time like using it for super soil and routinely adding it. This is why I do add tons of organic calicum and mag and other micros , but for at least cal/mag I always add it to my water as well so I never have issues . To remove cal/mag nitrate and use a “no n formula “ I use This after 3-4th week

flower cal/mag


you can def buy this great organic mix or build it yourself for cheaper

DERIVED FROM
Calcitic Lime, Dolomitic Lime, Gypsum and Fish Protein Hydrolysate


 
Awesome sir thanks for your time and input, the second batch I mixed was much heavier on the oyster shell flower and gypsum, the first batch had 0 only what was in the blend from elevated, I've got a ton of saved eggshells have to get on making some organic cal solution I've spent way too much already this year mixing soil and buying amendments, got enough to last a long time lol and it's a one timer pretty much it's all just gonna get better as I re use it, gotta be coming up on 3 cu yards by now, shoulders are getting swole 🤣🤣🤣

here’s a tip on those egg shells

i would sanitize And grind em up till powder form (egg shells ) or partially grinded vs throwing it on your medium because has chances of contaminate issues that can occur and the whole process of the egg shells to become intakable will take forever if not turned into powder vs barely broke apart or whole, example why they make crab meal or oyster/shrimp heavily grounded to full. Eliminates a big process time on medium to make it intakable

pre-grind the shells ( optional ) i use a hand kitchen square tool and break the shells into small pieces, why? = you can def fit more shells into the “grinding stage” vs leaving whole or in bigger pieces

put shells Into food processor and grind into almost flour , looks like white dust. Carefully when opening the lid ethier step away , let it Seattle or wear a respirator cause it def will have a smog of eggshells that you shouldn’t breath in.

after that step , if direct into worm farms or garden vs into compost pile ( heat sterilizes from compost) but direct applications need a little prevention mindset. just microwave the shells for 1-4 minutes than sir and repeat again , I would do 1-2 and than see how it goes and do it twice

some people say to use the oven but I’ve seen so many say the microwave is np , why waste all that energy for that

let eggs cool off a little before applying

than sprinkle onto medium or worm bin ( just don’t sprinkle too fast and Try not to breath it in)

I was going to go the knf/jadam route and dissolve the calcium into vinegar then apply as directed, haven't done it yet but researched it a bit lol I just hit the affected ladies with some Jack's at 400ppms, according to their formulator it shouldn't kill off my microbes too bad used at those rates, i listened to her on the kis podcast, if I gotta finish it out on synthetics ohh well flower is still flower to my bong 🤣🤣🤣 and worm binning some eggshells is totally doable I just started 2 17 gal bins with a pound in each one, threw in some basalt, alfalfa meal, kelp meal, and some oyster shell flower, bedding is just peat and coco, I'll add in shredded paper and cardboard a little at a time as the moisture level changes

if applying egg shells, 1/8th cup every 2-3 weeks

ever try worm chow? They sell it commerical ly but their is def diy versions , reason it’s a good formula is when I don’t have enough of proteins to give em and also to prevent for example fruit flies if giving to many things the fruit flies love


i make this every once and awhile and worms love it

for a 30-60+ gal tout worm tout/farm


worm chow will feed for 2 weeks on 1 dosage:
Grinded oats 2 cups
yellowcorn meal @ 1 cup
alfalfa @ 1/2-1cup , to get best price on this check places that have horse supplies and get pure AffAlfa, I can get ore grinded for 20 bucks 50+ lb’s

Grinded eggshell @ 1/8th cup
Azomite @ 1/8th cup





for worm bins like the cardboard you mentioned, they love dry cannabis leaves, prolly many leaves are accepted but when I trim my plants I have a “worm” bin for the leaves that are not sugar trim leafs and i weekly add that to the to[ over the paper, def preventive against moisture and pest to smother it, crazy how the worms can eat that who,e layer in 2-4 weeks np
 
Just got the bins going this last week, I've got a lot going on soil wise and castings are 25 bones a 1 cuft bag so they will pay for themselves pretty quick I hope, they've gotten corn husks, cobs, and funny you mention it I plucked a few leaves about 40 mins ago and they went in as well, I've got a line on spent beer grain as well but need to read on using it, and I've been using the animal feed alfalfa pellets re hydrated to amend the soil 14 bucks for 40 lbs and it gets a nice sour odor after a few days, I add a bit of perlite to keep it aerated and hope I'm breeding some type of bennie, my growstore guy said it can't be bad lol the soil should eat it a bit quicker I'd say imagine, same for the wormsz
