Looks like it seriously needs some calcium supplementation - especially if it underwent a rapid growth phase.  And not even to mention the smal container size.

Suggest a weekly or bi-weekly feeding of calcium based, liquid nutrient.  Maybe at 1/2 recommended strength.

Well, there are so many options, depending on your growing style.
.
You can go all natural, and used powdered eggshells dissolved in Vinegar.

.

You can go commercial, and use a complete fertilizer that has calcium.  In your area, I think you will have the best luck finding Dynagro Foliage Pro.

.

You can also just use a fish fertilizer.  So long as it has at least 5% calcium, preferably more like 7%.

.

I don't like expensive commerical options, like Cal Mag.  But if that's what you have, use it.

Just repotted my reaper into a much larger pot and gave her some quite weak nutrients.93ac8f262b0480e1c066c1371c0f2b33.jpg

What's the calcium percentage?

 

You should probably be doing a weekly with that.
