my plant is about 2 months old now.. and its not doing too good. i should have like 7 or 8 nodes of leaves now, but the bottom nodes keep withering away and dying so i only have 4. all of the top leaves are still looking green and fresh but the bottom ones turn yellow and then die. help.

We need a lot more info than that to help you.
Let's start with media/container (what kind) and light (how much of what kind).

its growing outside in the dirt mixed with potting soil and it gets direct sun(this IS an outdoor forum) from 10am to 1 pm, ive been giving it a very small amount of miracle grow in the water every now and then too.

The problem could be the MG nutes you gave it.

even from 1/8th of the reccomended dose?
Yup because you could be giving the plant something it doesn't need or want. What are the numbers on the MG nute bottle? There should be 3 of them. I would lay off giving it anymore and see what happens. You should think about getting some good nutes. I know it cost money but in the long run you will end up with better bud.

I pay $14 for my Fox Farm Grow Big, but at the strength you use it, it will last a few grows. Totally worth it IMHO.
