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.  photo Shocked_smiley_zps863641a8.png 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

RE: What's Wrong with My CG?

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.
