Well my my plants started having yellowing leave on the bottom showing nitrogen defiancy. So I figured they needed to be translated. I transplanted them and the leaves are continuing to yellow and the leaves a twisting and some are tacoing.
There seems to be a watering problem. Cloth pots can be tricky, especially if you're new to them.

When you water, all the soil in the pot should be damp, PLUS the cloth sides of the pot. After that, don't water again for several days, until the pot feels light and the soil is feeling dry. If you ever have the urge to give it a little water each day, stop yourself.

You will likely see water popping out the sides of the pot when you water. That is not a sign your watering job is complete. Most peat-based soils will repel water when dry. You may have to put the whole pot in a shallow dish and water from below.

U know I'd moisten my fabric pots in warmer Temps. If your in a moderate climate try to water your medium THOROUGHLY, a good medium will drain itself......I've gone to sitting my plants in tubs of water for an hour or longer depending on life cycle stages to let zhem absorb on their time the water I give them. I grow in soils here's an example of how I do it

I'd let that 20 quarts sit in say an jnch of water lol working well so far, the key for me is watching as they grow how much they can consume....once the roots fill the medium think of it as a sponge

Your plants look typical of young plants that were overwatered. I believe you improperly watered: that is, didn't completely wet the media when you did water, and maybe watering the center of the pot more often than you should. See the link on my first post to read about watering properly.

I wouldn't start trying to adjust nutrients at this moment. Water properly, then stop watering for a few days until the pot is light in weight. It could take a while for those little plants to dry out those pots.

Okay I stuck my finger into the soil only because I just transplanted so i can kinda judge were roots are and it was pretty dry. Because I thought I could have been over watering. So I went ahead soaked the whole medium instead of just the middle. Let it drain and now I won't water again until soil drys out.

See if they perk up in a few days. I expect they will.

Dude you are so mad over something that is in your head don't go spreading it around like it's true you are the one that started with the salt and hate and your writing is a little hard to understand just chill and be polite there are a few on this site that are not really part of the loving community we have here just loving cannabis in our own way and that's what I see here for like two years
