The plant is showing signs of starvation everywhere basically, unable to produce chlorophyll for photosynthesis , uniformly.

usually you’ll see the bottom leafs start, the tips , etc

perhaps it was balancing its self out pretty good, then it ran out.

Coco can be like hydro, really fast growth
Yea kinda knew what he was saying but I'm a new grower gotta put it in lamens terms lol but I thought it was either nute burn or not enough nutes but I'm thinking it was the pot I had it in one of those bs 5 gallon buckets from lowes I had to drill a million holes in but now they are growing in smartpots and seems like they doing ok ill keep updating

I'd top or bend it over now so it gives more attention to the side of the stem.

What's best way to bend and how much should I bend

String or yarn thru the rim of your container to the top of the plant and pull it over. It'll force the plant to grow more like a bush. Check out some of the other grow logs on here and copy somebody else who you think had good results.

Oh ok being honest never Google price of one didn't use one my first grow but maybe that was one of all other problems why they took a year to grow lol but ill order one tonight off Amazon I need to know about ph and all that stuff if I'm planning on growing good stuff..thanks yall for input

Not sure if youve sorted this yet or not, and Im a bit of a new grower myself so grain of salt, but Id be willing to put money on pH being your issue as others have said. I dont know much about self regulating nutes, I know some have balanced solutions to prevent swings when your plant eats, but you still need to ph your water to the correct level for your medium. Your plants look to me like they have no nitrogen. Nitrogen has its highest uptake at 5.0 if Im not mistaken. If it were me and I didnt have a pH pen or some ph up, Id try a couple drops of lemon juice or some sort of citric acid, in my water. But again, my experience is limited so grain of salt.

Yea I think Figured out my problem I was shocking my plants they will get better now that I'm filtering my water taking out chlorine was just using sink water it was killing out bacteria in the Alaska fish fertilizer 5.1.1 water was really cold too wasn't watering them right now I found out my issues ill get them back to looking good...had the same problem kinda on my first grow but I was using some weird miracle gro stuff and almost took out my plants but flushed them in time to save them had 5 out of 6 plants survive the 6th one I experimented on that trying to clone..

With coco perlite, you will always want to ph your water. Also, coco is notorious for causing mag deficiencies, add a teaspoon or 2 of unscented Epsom salt to your water every other week.. With that sorted, your growth should improve. Cannabis is a heavy feeder. Before long, I think you will need to add more food. I like to top dress with a cup or 2 of worm castings and some all purpose dry organic fertilizer. It's slow release, so it won't affect the plant right away, but in 2 weeks you will notice lots of healthy growth. It also helps buffer the roots against massive ph swings.

there’s really no point in bending the plant or anything like that at the moment, you just need to leave it alone for it to start growing correctly before screwing around..
as long as they don’t need a watering and the environment is good than find something else to do..

I'm just impatient lol need to have more patience I waited a whole year on last grow I can be patient on this on and quit trying to rush things
you have to do what you have to do,
but less screwing around especially when plants are young means soooo much more in the end!!
you are their guardian/protector..

True. Getting your grow to a point where you can sit back and watch the results with minimal effort is the goal. With me tho, most things in life I can't really learn unless its by error and fixing my errors. Hands off gardening is tough for newbies.

your absolutely correct..
i used to grow than a very long break than when i got back into it lots changed so i thought i go at it all new, what a disaster!!!
than started again more my way and in no time everything is back to perfect for the most part..
so anyhoo just try not to be touchy feely with them..
i’ve set up a nice comfy chair, cd player.. etc and hang there for a doobie or two while listening to tunes, cruising the farm etc..

Ahh ok, that sounds about right, I think the water temp has a similar effect of inhibiting nutrient uptake. I also use tap for my plants though and dont really have a problem but Im in ON Canada. What i do is turn the hot water on full till it just starts to turn warm, crank the cold and then turn off the warm. On the second jug I only need a few seconds of hot once the hot water line is primed but I do the same, crank it then cold, then turn off the hot. This time of year once the cold water lines have flushed themselves by running the water is frigid, so I cant just water my plants with it. After doing the part hot water thing I leave the jugs to sit for an hour or so. This helps to allow the chlorine to break down a bit, but isnt entirely necessary. If youve got higher levels of chlorine in your tap and want to still use it, you should be able to fill jugs up and leave them for a day or so. The chlorine should break down enough to water your plants, although there could be other issues with the water as well.

A little off the subject but just curious moeboi. Did you ever complete the move to the Place with the acreage? Are you going to give outdoors a whirl this year?
