I'm on my first grow as well, but I do know a couple things. Miracle grow sucks for marijuana. Do yourself a favor and get some real nutes. The NPK ratio isn't well suited for vegging either. You want something with a higher N than P or K for vegging. I'm not sure on the contents of MG but I doubt that it has the need micronutrients either. I could be wrong on that though.

Stop with the fertilizing and spraying until they get older!

Your soil is hot, to much fertz for a baby plant!

Lets all move back and realize why these plants never had a chance... (no offense meant)

What kind of soil did you use?
Quote:

natrual soil with vermeculite




Never ever ever use outdoor soil, period. This is a bad idea for a number of reasons: 1) pests and diseases are carried in all outdoor soil    2) The soil you are using is 99% of the time nutrient depleted  3) It is almost guaranteed to be of the wrong composition for good growth.

Now all of that said you may have been able to keep a plant alive (but certainly not thriving) if you were diligent and used a good fertilizer. But unfortunately miracle grow is as far from good as is possible. Like everyone else said, get some good nutes (but only after getting good soil (miracle grow is NOT good soil)). I suggest foxfarm (good soil maker as well) or the earthjuice lines to beginners (or if you are stupendously short on cash , fish emulsion which can at least get you through veg.)

And thirdly, you should never spray your plants with anything unless is is absolutely essential. In my experience, unless you have a pest problem there is no need to spray, ever. Roots are made to absorb nutrients why not use them?
