    I think someoldguy is referring to Dolomite Lime. Thats the better product. Garden Lime is what you use when you are lazy...or cant find the real stuff. Oyster shell is a good reputed pH buffer as well. Oyster shell is used in tons of premixed soil as their "pH adjuster". Though oyster shell ia only applicable if mixed IN TO the soil. Future thoughts and considerations.

    After some research i found the difference. First and foremost DO NOT use hydrated lime.
    Now the difference between dolomite lime and garden lime is Dolomite Lime has Magnesium AND Calcium. Garden Lime being pulverized limestone is mainly Calcium. But both are adequate at buffering your soil's pH.

    Another vital piece of info is use about 1-2 Tbsp per gallon of soil. I would use a hefty Tbsp per gallon of Peat Moss. I havent ever had pH issues. But i also run organics. That is pH idiot proof. Hence why "I" use it.

    Creeper, I don't think its bugs. After following @someoldguy and @Patientpuffer advice the problems have cleared up. I keep a close eye for bugs and I live in an area where it is still quite cold outside, but thanks for the advice.

    Bugs may not be your problem, however you have bug scar on the leaf in the bottom photo.

    Everyone, growing indoors, regardless of which strains you grow, even those of bug resistance, should have a yellow sticky trap hanging near their plants. They attract pests, and put an end to guessing if you have any bugs present?
