Are my buds gonna be as shit as they look?

I know its not mature yet but does it have a chance to produce anything worth smoking in your opinion?

Were the leaks fixed?
They can cause many issues, and slow down the process greatly.

I personally think they look like they're on the right track. That new growth looks relatively tight. It seems like they've only really been budding for about 2 weeks.

What he experienced was a plant that was just still vegging.  Now that it's in a tent and has a true 12/12 cycle it will start to flower. 


So xthrx, just consider that you started flowering when you got it in the tent.  Count the weeks from there.

I just looked at some of the past threads and edited my previous post; I see what was happening now with the light leaks.

Okay thanks, also the sets of water leaves are dying from the bottom upwards, anything I can do about this or? What are characteristics of underwatering? Some of my water leaves are very thin, still green but a bit rough ontop and the bottom water leaves [the ones directly growing from main stem] have wilted and fallen off, the top ones still seem fine.

Also, are the leaves that grow from the branches that grow from the stem, do they have the same function as the large water leaves that grow from the stem? Cause I've lost quite alot of leaf from the bottom

Water leaves?????  You mean shade leaves???


And if you are having leaf issues.  Get us some pics of the whole plant, and fill shit out.



Soil Growers:
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 and how much you give per watering?
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?

How often and how much are you feeding them? 


And what the hell is an average bucket?  You mean a 5 gallon pail?  That type of answer is really useless to us man.  We ask these questions because they are important, and really need detailed answers.



My guess is that they have been overferted, are in nute lock out, mixed with temperatures being too high.


Flush the shit out of em with pH balanced water.  You're doing so many things half assed here man, doing things the right way and doing your research really helps you not have to deal with a lot of the issues your going through man.

2.5 mls per litre, which is half what is recommended, going water - water - nutes - water - water - nutes

Gut reaction: That's a nute overdose. 
You've got eagle claw leaves which points to temps that are too high (not the case with your grow), pH problems (possible, and god only knows the quality of your rain water), or nute overdose. 

I'm leaning toward the last one b/c according to the manufacturer info, that potting soil has a 6 month time-release fertilizer (bad news all by itself), AND you've been adding nutes to the mix.

The other problem is that you have no idea what you're adding to the grow. Rain water is NOT pure; in fact I was trying to determine New Zealand rain water quality, and the first thing I found was a study regarding the presence of pathogenic microorganisms like e. coli and salmonella in the rain water.  You don't know the PPM or TDS, and you don't know the pH (if your area is prone to acidic rains, you're bottoming out the pH and you'd never know).  If you can't get a bead on the quality of your rain water, I suggest switching to RO water.

Would store bought pure water be more beneficial?

Also thanks for the info regarding the soil, did not know that.. D;

Bummer, Wont be adding nutrients then.

Okay, um those look underwatered and according to your watering schedule I'm sure of it. They should have water coming from the pots each time you water. You aren't even giving a half gallon to a (assuming) 5 gallon pot.
