What you fed them was way too HOT.  That looks like nute burn/high acidity (ph).  Flush them with clean pure h2o.  Then give them 3-5 days to recover.

1.  Your over watering.  3 times in 1 week is WAY too much for the size of those plants.
2.  They don't need shit for nutrients at that size.  You burnt the crap out of em.
3.  You shouldn't use time release nutes unless you already know what your doing.  And anything miracle grow sucks ass.
4.  You don't have a pH tester for your watering solution.  :facepalm:

You have 2 options. 

Option 1.  Buy a water pH tester, and flush the ever living shit out of your containers with pH balanced water.  I'm talking at least 15 gallons of water per container.


Option 2.  This one is a little riskier, but it's what I would do.  Get a 5 gallon bucket, fill it with room temperature water.  Take each plant out of it's container, and try to separate the roots from from as much of the soil as possible.  BE VERY GENTLE DOING THIS.  Take your time with it.  Don't rush. 

Once you have the plant free from the majority of the soil transplant it back into a container with new potting soil.  That potting soil being Fox Farms Ocean Forest potting soil.


Yes this will stress the plant out, but they will survive it.  I've done it before under some other messed up circumstances. 

Your choice.

thanks everyone :smile:

heres whats going on...i did these things this morning before anyone answered back :frown:

i pulled everyone out and ran 3-4 liters through EVERY pot until i started to have pretty good runoff. an hour later everyone was looking better.i have to walk my water(stealthily!!!) to my growroom so running 12 gallons of water through each pot isnt really possible w/o walking across my property with a 5 gallon water bucket 51 times.i spent my last $18 at home depot so im TOTALLY broke until the 1st. this is triage, fellas.these clones kind of fell into my lap and i know im a little unprepared but this is the hand ive been dealt and im doing my best.i also found my first spider-mites. just 3-4 mites(1 leaf) and no webs or eggs that i could find.plucked that leaf and a couple tacos that just looked dead and sprayed entire plants with tobbacco tea and a healthy dose of insecticidal soap. if i had money i would start from scratch with nothing but the best soils etc but thats just not whats going on in my life.i raised light 2 inches and increased ventilation which lowered my room temp from 74 to 73. i will walk all that water out there in the middle of the night (i have roomates that have NO idea...im the landlord but i dont want them to know)if thats what its gonna take but i thought i'd better update everyone before i do so. thanks guys!!! ill be anxiously awaiting all further input

That sounds all right.  But you have to be making sure that the water you putting through those pots are pH balanced.  If they're not then you could just be fucking them up even more
