Wow 7-8 weeks ?!!

I also had/have a problem with miracle grow bit it's the moisture control crap.

Maybe you should try a super soil. I've been reading about super coco but haven't had a chance to try it yet.

90 watt led huh.. Well it looks like it's hanging way to high. This is just my opinion but it looks like that plant is stressed to the point of no return. If it were me I would:

Start with a soil that I read good reviews about from multiple reliable sources. Then I would go to the thread titled how to grow marijuana everything you need to know. And read read and read some more.

Just trying to send you in the tight direction.. Solo :)

I also started out with using Miracle Gro soil with added nutrients and had many problems when I first started growing cannabis.

Here is my soiless mixture

I use peat moss, perlite, vermiculite and mycorrhizae and bacteria for my plants. I would mix your soiless mixture in a ratio of 60% peat moss, 20% perlite and 20% vermiculite. If you can get Pro-Mix HP you would only need to add 20% vermiculite and mycorrhizae. Vermiculite acts as a catalyst between nutrients and the plants roots as well as retaining moisture.





PRO-MIX HP Mycorrhizae - High porosity peat-based growing medium

Pro-Mix HP has 1 species of mycorrhizae added, I add 10 others species of mycorrhizae and more of the strain already contained in Pro-Mix HP. When I transplant my plants to larger size pots I use 1 teaspoon per 1 gallon size pot and 2-3 teaspoons per 3 gallon size pot of additional mycorrhizae granules.

I use General Hydroponics Flora series 3 part nutrients that can be mixed for all stages of vegetative growth and flowering. General Hydroponics Flora series can be used with hydroponic, soil and soiless mediums.

If you are looking to increase trichome production I use 3 products that have worked very well for me in flowering.

I use Snow Storm Ultra as a foliar spray at 1.25 milliliters per liter in flower every 7-10 days and discontinue use 1 week before harvest.

I will only spray Snow Storm Ultra just before the lights go off for the darkness phase of flowering.

I also use General Hydroponics Liquid KoolBloom and KoolBloom Dry in flower.

I use General Hydroponics Liquid KoolBloom at 2.5-5 milliliters per gallon from the start of flower until 3 weeks prior to harvest then use General Hydroponics KoolBloom Dry for 2 weeks at 1/4 teaspoon or 1.25 milliliters per gallon and discontinue use 3-5 days prior to harvest.

You can see these products in use and the results in my KingJohnC's Lush Lighting LED Dominator 2x Soil Indoor Grow Journal and Review.

eventually yes
it will at some point catch up to the soil and then you should see more growth
mg soil has hot spots but with more growth it will handle it better
should see a spurt soon
just keep the ph and air right

take care and good luck
