    So I used bleach this time, because of peroxide and iso shortages and I’m noticing a lot of issues in my garden afterwards.

    A lot of yellowing along the edges and orange burn marks on the leaves. They’re not caused by too much light, I got the heat under control, the yellowing could be because I overdid it with the insecticidal soap. My autos were overfed but my seedlings weren’t fed anything and they have it too. I’m going to recalibrate both of my ph pens tomorrow just in case. I’ve already flushed. I’ve been putting cal mag in while flushing. I just transplanted the seedlings so that might help. The orange dead spots don’t rub off anything on your finger so not rust mould. I don’t know. This feels like something different, but maybe just a stubborn lockout. Oh and the humidity did get down to 35 once and 38 another time. It’s fine now though.

    Anyone ever try using bleach to clean a tent and have something similar happen?

    Ive had a buddy that used it and had similar issues. He narrowed it down to once the humidity gets up there the bleach residue would almost become a part of the environment. Plants absorb through their leaves🤷🏻‍♂️. Maybe rinse your bleach areas better or i use odoban… disinfectant and odor eater

      This exactlly. Rubbing alcohol or peroxide are best best, if not available, sunlight dish soap. Bleach leaves caustic residue when it evaporates.
