it's hard to see the leaves because the pictures are out of focus.  take the pictures from a bit further back and make sure to focus on the plant.  then you can zoom and crop the pictures on the computer to make them a bit larger. 

as for the problem, what substrate are the clones in?  it looks like soil?  were you feeding with every watering?  what nute strength?  all details will help.


and welcome to the growery :awesome::gethigh:

The light is fine. You could actually get it closer to keep it from stretching if that becomes an issue. Pictures would be nice but take a look here and see if anything rings a bell...Are they curling up or down?

Is the entire plant affected? Or is it just the top or bottom?

The plants may be too tall at this stage...How long ago did you pot them?

What nutes were you using? Also reminds me of a potassium deficiency.

If the light is 6" from them, how much closer would ye recomend???

Are they curling up or down? Down

Is the entire plant affected? All the leaves are afected, except 1 or 2 leaves.

The plants may be too tall at this stage...How long ago did you pot them?
4 weeks and 3 days.

What nutes were you using? GreenDreams.

Also reminds me of a potassium deficiency. What are the signs of this???

Don't bother with the light.

Tips of leaves are yellow, brown, or dead. Plant otherwise looks healthy & green. Stems may be soft >> Over-fertilization (especially N), over-watering, damaged roots, or insufficient soil aeration (use more sand or perlite. Occasionally due to not enough N, P, or K. b)

I would personally put my money on root system.

How were they started?

This was my thought as well. Possibly the pot size is too small or the roots aren't getting enough oxygen, which is fucking up the nutrient chemistry...

Try putting a dome over clones and feeding it plain water. K.I.S.S. Keep It Simple Stupid. Also did you dip the clones in rooting hormone? you havent given us much info to work with. Hope it all works out.

Actually, he said they have been on the go for five weeks, and they definitely look like they've been growing since he cloned them. :wink:
