Do not keep feeding it everyday, make sure the pot dries out and not in a desert way, pay close attention to your plant she will tell you what's wrong, I've also seen the pic asking if it's budding, it's not budding it's forming more leaves as it's in the veg and I've noticed your leaves are curling up with an upward hook, are your heat and humidty levels in between 20/25D to 60/70%? If they are then I would cut back on watering and let her dry up, also you can buy a ppm meter in any hydro store or ebay to amazon, here's pictures of the calmag

Okay so what I've been doing for a while is I will fill my liter of water and I end up having to put two drops of PH down to get it to around 6 to 6.5 and then for a little while I've been adding not even half of what they call for for the nutrients maybe Point 5 ml Pier One but last night for the probably third time I've put nutrients I put the First the full amount of nutes but I never checked the pH after I have put the newts so maybe that's what I'm doing wrong as I am using water from my tap it's usually around 7.5 to eat so I had to use two drops of down and I got it to the 6.5 for a few times I only use a little bit of nutrition so now I use the full amount last night see what happens I guess
Sorry to tell you... but this is not the correct way to do this. The pH should be adjusted to 6.3-6.5 only AFTER EVERYTHING has been added. In many cases you will find that after adding the very acidic nutes to the mix that it is necessary to add pH UP in order to adjust the pH correctly to 6.3-6.5.
The way you have been doing it, your eventual pH had to be way down low ... out of the soil range of 6.2-6.8. This right here explains why you are having nutrient related difficulties.

Yes your liquid nutes will work fine, just get as much soil from around the roots before you transplant.

They need:
Nutrients
Light
Air
Water
One thing you can do that pays off big is controlling environment, RH and temperatures.
In soilless medium PH is critical.
