    if those are ur nutriets lol, mannnn. i hope not. Thats just an additive. U got nute burn and nute defficiencies. the ram horn happens when the plant has all it doesnt need. please input more, for growing hydro for 3 years you should be way past all this.

    Hey jack,thanks for the input. Ur rite Bushmaster is an enhancer and I used it as such, but have never experienced such drastic bendng of the leaves .
    I spoke to the people at Bushmaster today and they explained what I did wrong with this particular strain. I'll post some pic's in the near future..Anyway my problem was that I got "ppm happy" and kept on with elevated ppm levels.
    Firstly, use a kelp spray from the beginning of veg, not just the week before going into flowering. For aeroponic systems it is strongly advised that you use only water with no nutrients for three days. Also use a lower application rate 1ml - 2ml per gallon (depending on variety). Aeroponic systems deliver nutrients/additives directly to the root system continuously, thus absorption is high through the root system. Also make sure that the water temperature isn't to low (below 70F).

    Personally, I wouldn't apply Bushmaster through the root system in aeroponic systems. It is suggested rather use it as a foliar spray at 1ml per gallon. If Bushmaster is to harsh on your sensitive plants then foliar application is the way to go, the leaves are tougher than the roots
