what do u mean by nitrogen
m8
What Do the Numbers on Fertilizer Mean? The three numbers on fertilizer represents the value of the three macro-nutrients used by plants. These macro-nutrients are nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K), or NPK for short.

It looks like the leaves are hiding from the light instead of reaching for the light, have the plants been under the same light the whole time? Have the leaves ever reached for the light?

And are you watering when the pots feel light when you lift the pot?

I would suggest a little every 2 weeks or so. 1/4 strength Cal mag. A small fan is all that is required. As the plants dry out the humidity will fall back. I do not see any coloring of petioles or signs of light stress. If the light is 24" from the plants it should not be a problem. Maybe leave the tent open for a day or 2 so things dry out quickly. Then you can give them a feed. They should perk right up in a day or so. Don't sweat it.

I meant the light 24 at least inches from the top of the plants. Your at 30 inches thats right where it should be. 18 on 6 off is good. You need to not water your plants at all for 3 or 4 days. No water at all. Let those pots dry out. I told you that 2 days ago bud. I looked up your nutrients. If you happen to have anything close to Pro Mix 12-6-6 or Miracle Grow liquid 12-4-8 give them a feed with ether of these full strength for potted plants after the plants have dried out. "Weed plants don't like wet feet." Light levels are ok. No water at least 3 day then water with one of the above. It will take a few days but your plants will perk right up. Water around the outer part of the pot not in buy the plant.

That's good. Just let them dry right out before you water again and your good. The only thing wrong with your plants is that you have been killing them with kindness / over watering. In the future give them just enough water to keep them from wilting in 24 hrs. All the best. Ron.

Pour and Feed NPK is 2-2-2. A very light feed. That's why you can just pour it on the plants and not burn them. This would be great for indoor ivy and African Violets but for Nitrogen hungry pot plants it's just not enough. I'm thinking you need something with a little more Nitrogen at this stage of growth. Miracle Grow liquid 12-4-8 as directed would be a much better choice until buds start forming. Then something like 5-15-5 would be in order until 2 weeks before harvest.. Stop Fertilizing all together 14 days prier to harvest. Flush Pot with a least 5 times the pots volume of water and let the plant finish up with just enough water to keep it alive. It will loose leaves and look pretty bad but if you want good bud do this.

The first number is the amount of nitrogen (N), the second number is the amount of phosphate and the third number is the amount of potash . These three numbers represent the primary nutrients (nitrogen(N) - phosphorus(P) - potassium(K)).
2-2-2 would be 2% Nitrogen (N) 2% phosphorus(P) 2% potassium(K)).
12-6-6 would be 12% Nitrogen (N) 6% phosphorus(P) 6% potassium(K)).
5-15-5 would be 5% Nitrogen (N) 15% phosphorus(P) 5% potassium(K)).

How big are your pots and why aren't you you watering all of your medium each time?
Those are the percentages of (N)itrogen, (P)hosphorus, and (K)Potassium in your fertilizer.

😔 Miracle grow? Really? All you need to do is read on this forum, all the experienced growers comments about all the problems with this fertilizer. Troubles with too much nitrogen during flower. Boo to that.
But it's up to you. Don't say you weren't warned. Lol
