    I’m thinking spider mites have reared their ugly heads again. Could this discoloring be spider mite damage?

    Are you growing indoors under a grow light.

    Can you see tiny webbing anywhere.

    It's hard to tell under that lighting. Get a photo under daylight. With spider mites, there's also going to be disfiguration / deformation on new leaves and leaves that are still growing. But it's going to take a week or 2 to assess based on that. I think everybody here should own a loupe. Easy way to diagnose / rule out spider mites.

      You should see webbing that consists of tiny strings of material just like a spider - to which they are related. If you look at them under a hand lens, you can see them pretty easily. If you google spider mites images you will know what they should look like.

      I've found them to sometimes be a problem indoors. Outdoors natural predators seem to keep their numbers down; if not, a daily strong spray of water should take care of the problem.

        Here is a pic under normal lights. I’ve had spider mites before, the thing is this time seems different as there is no webbing and I can’t see anything. Just the discoloration on the leaves

          Are you fertilizing?
          What's your fertilization schedule?
          Healthier plants will be able to fight off infestations. Good luck.

            How close are your lights? I used to grow kratky veggies indoors under lights and noticed light burns when they got too close

              AscPete Max monster the lights are under the alien grow lights, maybe 6-7 inches underneath. Could it be burning from the light?

                This is the one im using. Could this burn leaves on cuttings 7 inches away?

                Mm no if it was burn from that far... I think the pattern maybe more diffused... mine burned around 2 inches away and since it was so close it was like literally a white dot.

                There is no signs of burn from grow light.
                Hardly any grow light can burn fig leaves from 7 inch distance.

              On another thought, twice a week I was spraying with end all spray at night time. The cuttings should have had full 12 hours to dry. Could that be an issue?
