hi marty hows it goign m8!
 i think ur watering them to much m8 they dont need very much!
when i waterd mine from seedling i would give just a few tablespoons of water maybe 5 or 6.
gradually u increase that obviously but i think less is more in this case!
give more details also m8 so people can help better!
are they outdoor now?
if not how are you growing them? and how much water have u been giving them exactly?
what kind of environment have they been in?

no probs m8.
thats a lot of water every day from seedling.
mine are 30 odd days old and i give about 500ml every 3 days or so  depending on how dry my soil is when i put my finger in to the knuckle.
weed needs to be waterd then dryed between waterings so water a lot less and make sure u let ur soil dry out a bit before u water again!
what kind of lights u got them under m8?
temps humidity seem ok but y 16 hrs light a day not 18?
think its 16 hrs for clones although not sure to be fair as im on my first serious grow as well. lol
what size pots are they in m8?

hi marty i cant see your pics, you used a name with an & letter/sign for the picture.
doesnt mattter, your soil is very airy and doesnt keep much water in the soil. so overwatering, without seeing a picture, sounds not logic.. but if you use very small pots it could be true.overwatering means not enough air for the roots, leafs go hanging, but if you give not enough they hang too.Again, i didn't see the pictures caused by a file name with an & in it.

Hi marty i agree with jonny,too much water and they should be on an 18/6 light schedule. thats 18 on 6 off.Also im not sure the addition of sand in the mix is benifical,im sure with all the watering the sand could be washed to the bottom of the pots and the roots have been sitting in wet sand.

Let the pots dry out a bit between waterings and 30c is a bit on the hot side,try get that down a bit too if you can.Are these staying indoors or are they going outside eventually?

to much watering is making the ph go off and is what this is. i also bet yourt not even using ph as i see no mention of it and is the most important info when diagnosing...one of the most important

U can add a drainage layer of 2-3cm at the bottom of ur pots using hydroton.

Since u r preparing plants for an outdoorgrow u might wanna look these up;

was thinking the same there m8 lol!
bit of a give away if ur doing a guerilla grow with lights sort of defeats the purpose!
i think hes growing indoors but not sure if he,s putting them outside?
you wouldnt catch me growing outdoor with lights!
you might as well just walk up to the cop shop with a kilo in ur coat and a big blunt in ur mouth!%3coving%20it
