Tips turning brown on Bountiful Blue blueberry?

I have 6 blueberries in Air-pots using the 5.1.1 mix. I'm using Dyna-Grow Foliage Pro with PH corrected water at 4.5-5.0. They are in full sun. All the new growth burned brown and leaves are burnt? I'm trying to figure out how to post picks! thank you

Here's a link that I have saved in my favorites on how to post pictures.

I would have to say you are probably over fertilizing and or not flushing enough with plain water.

The problem is likely because dyana-gro uses nitrates for its nitrogen. Blueberrys do not like nitrates, you need to find another fertilizer that uses urea for its nitrogen.

groem is correct, I forgot about the nitrates. You can also find an Ammonium sulfate fertilizer which also has sulfur to lower your Ph.

I was going to mention the nitrate issue, as you are both correct in suggesting that nitrates are not the best for a fertilizer source. The reason I didn't mention it is because although FP is probably not the best source of fertilizer for blueberries, I've read posts from people that have used FP on blueberries with decent results. A picture would help. I have a couple of blueberry plants in containers. I's odd that just the new growth would die IMO. Maybe try posting the ? in the fruit forum also.
