1. Are you growing from seed or clones?
2. How old are your plants?
3. How tall are your plants?
4. What size containers are they planted in?
5. What is your soil mix?
6. How often do you water and what type of water do you use?
7. What is the pH of your water?
8. What kind of fertilizer do you use and what is its NPK ratio?
9. Do you foliar feed or spray your plants with anything?
10. What kind of lights do you use and how many watts combined? (HPS, MH, fluorescent, halogen, incandescent "plant lights")
11. How close are your lights to the plants?
12. What size is your grow space in square feet?
13. What is the temperature and humidity in your grow space?
14. What is the pH of the soil?
15. Have you noticed any insect activity in your grow space?
16. How much experience do you have growing?



Have you gotten any water on the leaves?

No, but the way that leaf is curling, it looks like it could have happened.



I asked those questions because I needed the answers.  If you could elaborate that would be great.  Not just, generic soil.  Big pot.  That doesn't tell me anything.  Also when you water, how much are you watering.  And how often are you feeding them?

I dont know how big the pot is, its about 10 litre maybe, could be smaller, hard to judge.

Soil is store bought soil, no idea on the brand. Sorry I dont know the details =\

I water about 650mls, every second day. And add nutrients to one of those feeding days, once per week.

How much of your nutrient solution do you add, what are the values of the nutrient solution. 



Your underwatering the shit out of that plant.  If I had a 10 litre pot, I would be adding at least 8 liters of water, and then let it dry out.  The way your doing it, a lot of the soil stays dry and the roots wont stay alive in those sections.

Shit! Okay, so water everyday with atleast 2 litres or more? Is overwatering worse than underwatering or the other way round? Thanks for the help, seriously appreciate it.

Wow, you didn't read that at all.  NO, don't water it every day.  I said let it dry out.  And no.  If you have a 10 liter pot, I said to water it 8 liters, then let it dry out. 


They're both bad.  And you didn't answer the question about your nutes.  You also need to figure out what the pH of your water is.

Nitrogen 5%w/w Phosophorus 4% and Potassium 11%. Im using 2.5 mls to every 500 mls water as recommended on the back.

I do let it dry out, but it dries out pretty quickly with the amounts im watering it

also is your light in a cooltube type setup?

afaik, it looks like you have a mild claw going on which is a nutrient/ph related thing.

The actual burns on the leaves don't look nutrient related to me, more like the end result of extreme light bleaching.

My light looks like that or very similar.

I think the burns were from the light and thats been taken care of. How can I fix the clawing?

I don't really know how to make things any more clear.  You need to get your pH in check, you need to figure out what your temps are in the room, you need to read what I've been telling you and do it. 



The clawing that has occurred wont go away, you will be looking to the new growth for signs of improvement.
