Well you were most likely right, but it was also nute locked cause it only got worse. So last few days i have flushed and slowly introduced nutes back. Did loose most of the ones that changed. Will attach pics in a min

Hey @Pennywise, not sure i told you but i listen to everyones advice or atleast give it a shot. So you told me about filling up the 5g bucket with roots. So i picked up a 5g airlift drip system. I told you fixed PH once nute block was over you can really tell everything is pretty much going right. I checked PH in nutes plus after flush i slowly added nutes everyday. Started out just about tapwater like 3-400 ppm then 5 and so on until right about 1000 plus or minus. But what i was getting at is i did daily adjustment before work got home normally i only check 1 time a day but ever since the the hiccup i tend to her a bit more. But in just a few hours roots shot out the bottom of bucket anywhere from half an inch to 4-6 inches really takes off glad i made the switch. Thanks everyone. I have a question does anyone use "superthive" and what do you think do you live by it? Then another i have is by General Hydroponics called "floralicious plus" its an organic enhancer or sweetner. Being my first grow i have nothing to compare it to.

I don’t use enhancers myself, just adds another element to cause problems. I use Superthrive and Supervit both. Usually for stress from topping or lst. A few drops once a week seems to allow quicker recovery times.

For those who remeber me using mircle grow just to put the difference on paper so no one makes the mistake i made. MG has NPK of 24-8-16 which is super high ( for new people nitrogen-phosphorous-potassium). After a good flush and switching to a proper veg nute with a NPK of. 1-.07-3. Now i use the one part veg nute right now and superthive and floralicious. Can anyone suggest something im missing or should try?

Go to 18/6, plants need down time for growth. The effected leaves may not recover so watch for normal new growth.
Edit: others have no problems at 24-0 and some of the best growers use 24-0. Stress free environment has many benefits to your plants, Dark can help with stress..

Hey @Pennywise. Question i know i had over come so operator issues and recover my plant. I know the plant is small, its supposed to be compact. From the top looks great from the side kind of looks bare. Is it a strain thing or did i or am i doing something wrong thus it doesnt " bush out"

I lowered the like like 2 or 3 inches. I put my hand on top of the plant doesnt feel hot but then again im not sure if light burn is from too much exposure or just heat burn.
