    looks like a over fert prob but would need some more info . like temp and the nutes you are using.the prob with some nutes is that the instructoins on amounts to give are way out sometimes and some strains just wont have it heres a link to a thread that may help you out .nice set up mate good to see more uk growers doing their stuff .be safe the postman.

    ak47 at 31 days from seed

    Here are my recent pics at 31 days old nutes at (1260 ppm) and ph (5.9).
    My tallest plant is 18" and three are at 15" and 1 stuck at 8" I took 2 clones of each today will leave them for a week then force flower just to sex them.
    Then dump the males and keep the best female as a mother plant.

    How much hight do you have to work with? Those WW's can do some serious streching. I would think about swiching that 18 incher pretty quick or you could be looking at a 4 footer.
    Hope all is well, seem to be doing good.

    Hi puffyjoe,Am using (ionic grow) as i they are meant to help with the ph of the res and have to say they seem to work as my tap water is (ph7) and after adding ionic grow it normally sits at (ph6) so they been ok for me so far.

    Take it easy.:thumbsup:

    Sorry I can't see the clones do to the old vision thing, but yeh, they look like they want to call it quits at first, for the first couple days at least. What is your cloeneing set up? Dome, heating pad, floros exc that may help me to understand a little better. Did you use rooting gel or powder? However bad they may look, don't give up on them to soon some go for almost a week looking like they are doing the limbo and then bounce back.
    9FT, you are a lucky man. LOL

    Cheers, BlueBbear and postmandave.

    My clone set up is a (propogator) (220w fluorescent pl4 prop light)(clonex gel)
    And no heating mat but will buy 1 when i get paid.Can you tell me the ideal temp for the clones to be in.Today it's 84 hot day today.yesterday it was about 76.I know this fluctuation in heat can't be good.

    And postmandave am always open to suggestions on trading.

    Take it easy lads. CHEERS
