Yes, no, maybe so.
Pruning off damaged leaves for mobile nutrient def will show more quickly if changes made were effective. I pruned for light at the same time so I cut off all the reserves. Thing is there is/was plenty of Ca in the feed and its the pH thats causing issues. So the pruning has actually led me to the root cause.
If I were going to let it ride and make no changes I wouldn't have pruned, the reserves would still be there and the plant still would not be uptaking the amount of Ca needed. It would look better though.
I feel ya. Reading plants can't exactly be taught. But they will show you if you're listening lol

how did it turn out? did you only soil feed or foliar feed aswell?
i like the recipe. i substitute egg shells (although they will be part of new recipe once hens start laying) with fine shell grit (sea shells mussels oysters etc) i got from the pet stock place grind it up into more of a powder with mortar and pestle or let it sit and do its thing for a while longer and take lid off and stir every few days.

The plant survived and turned out ok. I like it best as a foliar feed. I had more issues from megacrop formulation changes than the wcap imo. I have since gone back to mostly organic soil and don't feel the need to use it as a soil fertilizer that is well ammended with crab/crustacean lime and other various calcium sources and plenty of phosphate, I don't want to throw that balance off. I'll generally spray late veg and at the begining of flower. I have added silica and the minerals Zn, Cu, Mn, and Fe to the foliar regimine as well.
I don't have any quantifiable evidence of benifit only a percieved positve plant response. That's enough for me.
