7. What is the pH of your water? 6.0
8. What kind of fertilizer do you use and what is its NPK ratio? X NUTRIENTS GROW= 1.6-2.1-5.5 15ML/GAL X NUTRIENTS MICRO= 3.9-0-1.3 15ML/GAL X NUTRIENTS AMINOBLAST= 15ML/GAL  PURE BLEND PROGROW= 3-2-4 7.5ML/GAL  CAL MAG= 2-0-0 5ML/GAL

SO AFTER 2 FAILED HEMPY BUCKET ATTEMPTS IM BACK TO SOIL. MY FIRST CROP WAS ALL SOIL AND WAS AMAZING!!! MY LAST 2 CROPS WERE HEMPY BUCKETS AND DISAPPOINTINGLY LACKLUSTER. MY CURRENT CROP IS 1/2 NEW CLONES(PURPLE ERKEL&HAWAIIN ICE) AND THE OTHER 1/2 IS 4TH GEN MASTER KUSH CLONES FROM MY FIRST GROW.

QUESTION 1: WHATS UP WITH THE ZEBRA STRIPES AND YELLOWING LEAVES?







QUESTION 2: THE OLDER CLONES ALMOST DIED AND THESE ARE 95% NEW GROWTH I CANT BELIEVE THEY SURVIVED. SOME PULLED THRU WITH JUST 1-2 WILTED FAN  LEAVES!!!!!! THEN I STARTED SEEING GREEN SHOOTS EVERYWHERE AND NOW THEY LOOK LIKE THIS. THEY'RE REALLY DENSE...IVE ALREADY TAKEN CLIPPINGS TO PRESERVE THE DNA BUT SHOULD I EVEN BOTHER GROWING THEM OUT OR ARE THEY DESTINED TO BE SHIT?

Too much nutrients would be my guess.  They are in lock out at this point.  You need to drill some drainage hole in the bottom of your container, and then flush them with water at a pH of 6.5 or so.  3-5 times water to soil ratio. 


You're nutrient regimen is WAY too high for the stage of growth they're in.  i never go over 2 mls per gallon cal mag, and that's every 4th feeding or so.  At peak flowering growth my plant only get 10mls per gallon of botanicare formula every other watering.  You're frying your plants homey.

KEEP EM!  They can always bounce back.  Don't forget to drill drainage holes!
