I have what looks like a typical magnesium deficiency but it starts at the top of the plant. After giving it a flours spray two days in a row with epsom there’s no sign of improvement. Is it a magnesium deficiency or could it be something else?

I posted a pick but it hasn’t loaded yet the leaves are only at the top of the plant that look like they have the magnesium deficiency. Weather was cold than it warmed up and everything greened up and then this came

You're fine - I have a few in similar / worse shape. It seems to be a heat stress issue. As long as new growth looks ok, nothing to worry about.

I'm not sure. I've tried to fix this with magnesium also but also with no noticeable effect so theres other factors... I think root temperature or moisture and the general humidity and fluctuation in the plants energy/root growth... It seems to go away completely when things get warm and dry and sunny.
