What's Wrong with My CG?

Anyone know what's going on with my CG?

He was nice & green a month ago & now he's turned to this sickly looking light green with light veins. Tried giving him ES, MG, but no change. I have another Brug (FP) & I feed them both Dyna-Gro & Pro-Tekt but the FP doesn't have this problem.

Charles Grimaldi ? CG seems to run a lighter green / yellow than many of my other brugs.
Do you flush out the salt buildup that can happen in pots ?
My cure all is foliar spray Humic and fulvic acid, making sure plenty runs into the soil. It frees up minerals that are locked up in the soil

Thank you for your reply! Yes, it's a Charles Grimaldi :). Just got it 3 mos ago as a rooted cutting & it was a darker green than it is now which is why I was wondering if something was wrong or if this is just a characteristic of this particular Brug as it grows.
In answer to your ques: yes, I always make sure to flush out the pot before any feeding. It was recently potted up a wk ago since it already outgrew its 8" pot.


Since my last posting, I decided to use the full strength dosage of Dyna-Gro Liquid Gro mixed with Pro-Tekt along with ST in a gallon of rainwater when it was time to water the Charles Grimaldi. 4 days later I gave it fish & seaweed emulsion. Added spent coffee grounds & egg shells to its pot & as of 3 days ago the new growth coming from the top is finally a lush gorgeous green again! Hallelujah! Looks like I need to feed this little piggy more than usual. So happy. Just thought I'd post this in case anyone else is having similar issues not related to watering/disease/pests/soil/etc.
