    It could be pH related, it could be nute burn, it could be cal/mad deficiency.

    Well it's kind of difficult to diagnose something without seeing pictures or a very very very detailed description of what's happening.
    Also if you don't want to post pictures you can try to solve it yourself by going here: Cannabis Plant and Pest Problem Solver - Pictorial

    what type of soil did you plant them. most commercial potting soils have to much nutrients for seedlings and they burn. unfortunatly the more you try to flush, the more fertilizer is released.

    Well, this is the first time I have heard HempRocket been described as a noob. He is more than helpful and has been there for a lot of us beginners. It's funny when people pop up on this site with a chip on their shoulders and think they are the end-all be-all of pot growers. No pics, no journals no proof.

    I may be a new grower but you are a professional D-bag. Kick rocks.

    As for the OP, pictures do help and this site is full of good people with good vibes. The majority of folks here remember what it was like before they had several grows under their belts and will be happy to help.

    Good luck on your grow.
