you need patience as you go through a wet/dry cycle from here on out with your feeding but back off on calmg, 3 ml is a lot, 5 ml would be the max ever used. more like 1-1.5 ml till the plant is at least twice that size. get a consistent environment for day and night, lots of airflow. is your light too close also?
to me looks very slow growing and could be stunted, the more you just leave them be the better they should be.
Haze XL AF Is still thriving. I trimmed a little and LST a little bit going to be a good one.. but the rest I just don't know.. Once again. Everyone got the same. JUST 4 liters PLAIN RO. Ph approx 6.78. Orange sherbert has leaf curling and twisting.. more yellowing feom the outside in.. NL AF looks like it's coming back to life a little. Still expect nothing out of it.. WTF did I do now.. I assumed 6.78 was still a safe PH. But am I remembering PH wrong. Would it have been better to water with 5.9 like last feed to keep consistent.

one thing, see the tips and how they are lighter in colour, a very early sign of light stress, light too close.
your over mothering them and being too touchy with them, like i said just leave them alone and water feed when needed, now go find a new hobby and leave the plants alone.
cross your fingers you didn’t stunt them yet.

Valid.. Can't argue with any of this here post.. I did raise the lights yesterday to 24 " .. Stunted or not I learned a lot making these mistakes. REALLY appreciate everyone! Definitely going to start donating!

Any ideas what this is? the 1 healthy plant.. Haze xl.. has this leaf discoloration starting from the top down.. This is the only one that had shown no signs of over watering. Also I think I moved the light to far because those nodes are really stretching..

Overwatering doesn't mean too much water at one given feeding, it means watering too often before it's properly dried out and not allowing the soil to pull in oxygen. Promix is nearly as impossible to overwater as coco, not quite but close. And it is VERY important that when you water, that you completely saturate the media beyond field capacity so that you force a little runoff. That runoff actually pulls a bit of oxygen into the media, and now the roots can fully explore the pot. The roots just won't grow into dry media, so you have to really wet it everytime you water.

What you want to be careful about is not watering again until the pot is quite dry. After transplant I'd expect it to take 5-6 days to dry out a 3 gal pot if the environment is correct, which it seems to be. Could be a little warmer really, LED benefits from temps closer to the 80-82f range to drive transportation. Those VPD charts are useless unless your taking leaf temps into account as the 3rd variable
Hey dirt bag sir . So you should water till runoff everytime you water and feed? Ive only been doijg about 70% because last run i fed to run off in plastic pot and it seemed to stunted and yellow mid flower.
This run my ventilation is better my pots are drying out every day and half. Is this to fast?

should i drench them more? Sorry for hijacking thread just wanna know

Yes, you should get at least a tiny bit of runoff each time you water/feed.

There are a lot of reasons plants can stall and yellow in flower but it's usually more related to nutrient concentrations and daily amounts of light.

Could under ventilation which as a result not enough co2 cause a slight stunt as well??

It absolutely can yeah. Would have to be significantly undervintilated though, either zero air circulation or a nearly sealed room with no enrichment type thing. Even the most basic hole in the wall will allow gas diffusion, heat buildup would harm the plants before suffocation in that case I think.

High humidity without the aid of dehumidifiers or a/c also is a sign of under ventilation right dirt bag? Mildew etc

If you dont feed to runoff and just enough to fill the pot. This will cause lock ups and can stunt growth right?,

I've got the light 24 inches up and at 40% but it's showing more light stress since yeaterday.. Is that light stress or is that a nutrient deficiencies brought on by it's change to flower? but im fairly certain my first auto is flowering .. Going to switch to flowering food this next water.. and my ventilation is stellar. 4in intake w carbon filter 6 in exhaust w filter. Both ac infinity. And they kick on to control humidity as the minisplit handles temp. My office is the lung for this particular room. So I am in here all day talking. My Co² levels in the space are steady between 600 and 1000.. first thing in the morning. They might be as low as 450.. these fans kick on maybe every 5-10 minutes and ramp up to 80% best balance I could find.. my humidifier ran out of water last night as you can see on the graph.. and then it takes a day to balance back out right to the even keel lines you see before the fluctuations.. the other graph is Co2 and actually it shows my co2 low points at 6pm intervals which is typically when I leave the office everyday. But they are still between 500 and 1200. Consistently over 600ppm. So I don't think it's that.. this damn OS hasn't grown up since maybe monday.. I'm wondering if I top it now will it force growth back down and maybe Jumpstart the nodes and then I can just train all the nodes out.. Definitely light burnt.. also first time w LEDs..

damage will not heal only gets worse probably turn brown or yellow.. what your seeing has probably already been affected by the lights..
man, you got to find a hobby while you grow! haha..

Not bothering us at all. With them being autos and already stressed i wouldn't top them personally
