Droopy leaves: Organic with nutrient? Help

My first grow, auto white widow..
One has nutrients the other is just with ph'd water. Is that what is causing the drooping?
Or cold temp but then my other auto with nutrients would be same but its fine. The two drooping pictures are 3 days apart.

Any ideas?

You are watering way to much. thats definately the problem. Are you using the correct PH water between 5.5 and 6.5? My advise to you is to water every other day or every 3 days depending on how fast your soil drains. If it is draining very slow or pooling for long periods of time, then I would add some peralite into the soil to aireate the soil. Next time be sure to use some small PH nuteral river rocks about 1/4 up from bottom then put in soil. This makes it drain much easier.

I dont think so because I wait until the pot is very light and only water when i can easily lift it with one hand. i ph to around 6. In a 2 gallon its been about 3 days between watering and it drains well as its sitting on a elevated pan with small fan blowing beneath.

That s the ph for hydro mate. Not a soil grower but it's 7ish for you guys.

Not posting wrong info buddy. You feed 5.5 to a soil plant it will fuck it up. Can barely get away with it in hydro.
Best availability for nutrient uptake in soil as you can see is around 7.
5.5 as you can see, will fuck them up.
Don't assume that because someone works in the Industry they know how to grow weed.

You just get away with it sometimes mate. I'm currently doing some coco hempys at 7.4 because I've lost my ph pen. Should be fucking them right up and it has done in the past but they're doing great. Doesn't mean it's right though. For best results I should be 5.7-6.3. Some strains can handle it, others can't. It could all just turn over night too. When I use my hydro res I start getting issues at 6.5 but for some reason the hempys are taking it . It is risky and my plants could realistically fall to shit at any moment so I'd never advise anyone to do it. Just having an experiment cos I can be assed rifling through the pile of shit in my attic to find my ph pen lol.

It seems like it did happen overnight. Last watering before yesterday was march 12. I will try less ph down on my next watering to see if it perks back up.
