    Really, at Lowes? If so, please let us know. Thank you. And everything is looking good to my amateur eye and the need for bloom nutes is right on the money.

    Bone meal is a natural source of phosphorous - available at most garden centers and maybe Lowes. WalMart, etc. Have you read the overgrow FAQs on this site?

    I think you have some serious issues re watering. The very dark green/purple and the curling down leaves are a bad sign. What medium are you using? Before adding anything extra, you must address this issue or you will get a diminished yield.

    these ones are in some black gold regular potting soil and i give them about a gallon or so a day with a little bit of potassium sillicate and some 5-15-5 plant food. what do you think i could do to make thoes leaves not curl down ? i took thoes pics just before i watered they were kinda dry but thoes leaves have been curled like that for awhile now.

    i water 6 plants with 1 gallon of water i spread it out evenly amoung them all so they all get like maybe 3 or 4 cups of water with half the recomended nutes on the potassium sillicate and 5-15-5 plant food. i usually pour it in untill it drains out the bottom holes a little bit then wait untill its dry usually 1 or 2 days sumtimes more but usually never more then 3 days and then water them again.

    Do NOT be adding extra supplements until you have corrected the watering problem, or you will end up fucking your plant right up. KISS
    It will take 7 to 10 days to fix this problem. No more ferts either!

    It is CRITICAL that you let your medium dry out between waters, almost to the point of wilt before watering again.
