Ok so I have some pretty bad leaf curl on the buds of this plant.  I can't seem to find a diffinitive answer in any of my books.  It appears maybe to be a defficiency or possibly light bur.  but the thing of it is its not turning the leafs colors.  Like burning them should. not to mention the temps are actually kind of low for that.  I don't think its something I can fix now with harvesting them in the next 2 weeks or so but it would be good for future referance.

to me, this looks like it could be over watering.  i'm not a pro however, just the fact that you say and pic show the leaves not turning colors or spotting and that you say you water 2-3 times a week. 

nice fuckin cola tho!

Thank you.  I will take that into consideration.  the reason for the 2-3 waterings a week is because they are in smallish sized pots and I am sure they are root bound.  They absorb the feedings at an astronomical rate.  I will water in the morning and with in 24 hours the soil is dryish and by day 2 they are begging me for another feeding.  hungry little ladies

oh and thank you.

Possibly some salt build-up, drop the ph of your solution a bit, you can go much less in soil, 5.8 to 6.5, I usually stay on the lower end. Feed at most every other watering. And yes they definitely are root-bound, if you don't have the space for bigger pots, try Smart Pots, they work wonderfully for spreading roots out everywhere.

It looks healthy but I would vote that you are over watering.  How much water do you give per serving?

...things look pretty moist, where is your humidity at?
