This is my second DWC grow and it’s been rough to say the least. I have two main issues. One is unfortunately I forgot to reset my timer to veg hours and these plants grew in flower hours for the first month of growth. I discovered this when the plant reached maturity and started flowering and I switched the lights back to veg hours. The picture shows them two weeks after flipping back to veg hours. Is it possible to avoid the effects of monster cropping by cutting off the bud sites? Ideally I’d like to get back to one main cola per branch and not several. Should I just put them back in to flower and let it do what it is going to do?
The second issue is throughout the entire grow I had nutrient problems that I attributed to the lighting, but I’m still seeing lots of problems. There is clearly some nutrient issues and I can’t seem to stop the leaves from curling. I’m using Advanced Nutrients and to try to lower the nitrogen levels I dropped the PPM of my water to under 300, but I still see curling and dark green leaves even at low PPM levels. The pH range is always around 5.5 as well. What is going on here?
The plants look awful and I feel like I may have screwed this up so bad I’m past the point of no return. I did so well with my last grow, but this one has been a totally different experience.
