looks like a hungry plant to me... probably salt or leftover nutes lockout. Your roots can't be very strong in the first place since you are able to go a week between waterings.... usually we see a 2-3 day cycle in flower. I would flush properly 3x the container size and then see what happens with the water usage. Also, you aren't getting a plain water watering inbetween the feeding? if not, it is no wonder your nutes are backing up on you.

define flush (forget that question... I asked and hit enter before thinking)

excuse me please... i think you were clear. You did a proper flush on friday. Then, all the salts are gone and the soil is reset... no, there is no need to do another one. Let her dry out now and lets see if those roots start doing better. Patience is the key now...

I am still curious how it is that you can go a week between waterings without your plants wilting. I watered my blooming plants 2 days ago and today they needed it again... and the leaves from mid plant down were drooping.

Em, when in bloom I thought you push water/nutes everyday? Not there yet in my grow but I want to prepare. Thanks love.

no... I try to push water harder than I do in veg, but I am not watering every day and only give nutes as suggested by whichever manufacturer I am using on that grow... such as Megacrop which requires nutes on every watering. It is still important in bloom to get oxygen down to the lowest roots periodically, and you should have seen my big gummy bear wilting the other day when I let her go 3 days between watering!

I water to the point of runoff every week. Usually a gallon of water.

Looking at Stacy (the problem child) I see her branches are droopy. As I watered her, I noticed the run off after adding the first quart of water. I gave her a full gallon. She is in a three gallon cloth pot.

Taija looks a little droopy, but she has no discolored leaves. She had no run off until I added three quarts of water. And she was heavy when I picked her up. She's in a five gallon cloth pot.
