These are okra plants that I am going to plant in my aquaponics aquarium. They are currently in vermiculite. I am feeding them masterblend/magnesium sulfate/calcium nitrate a .5 teaspoons/.35/.5 teaspoons per gallon of water, roughly. They are growing like crazy, but in the pic below you can see some light green splashes instead of the dark green, then on at least one of the leaves what looks like are some little burned looking stops. Also, a couple of the leaves are curling up.

Anyone have any ideas what is causing this, what nutrient deficiency or deficiencies there are, or maybe I am feeing them too much>

Thanks!!!

I was going to say Iron. Then i had looked up the Masterblend and had a thought. Are you just pouring some of the hydroponic solution once a day, or do you have a little hydroponics set up? My thought was that aqauponic and hydroponic plants grow really fast. Much faster than dirt. If you are just pouring some solution on them and walking away, the plants could be depleting the nutrients in their vicinity due to fast plant growth.

So how are you feeding them? Add some chelated iron.

Chelated iron and seaweed extract are my go tos for nutrient issues and preventing them.
