Olga, my guess (and it is JUST A GUESS) is that your plants used to have
PLENTY of something, and now they have barely enough.  Your LFS has none.
Your plants used to have enough to draw on reserves and now they don't,
they show deficiency symptoms right away.  You need to go back to having
plenty.  Oh, and incidentally, you need to figure out what the something is.
