    Sorry no one has replied, your plant has bugs and nutrition issues. Please take pictures without the light on so we can see the color. If you don't have an eye loupe, get one a 60 x power is what i use. After you identify your issues we can help. Good luck. There is no way for us to know a strain by looking.

    Sevin powder and NEEM oil?
    On plants in bud?
    Not a great idea, in my opinion.
    Where's that powder going to go? Yup, into your buds.
    Neem oil MAY be linked to CHS, so that's not a great idea either.
    I would use a capsicum and water with a little Dawn dish soap to bind it for your bugs it's a lot better than that Sevin crap, especially indoors.
    Despite doing just about everything wrong from what I see you're actually going to get some bud out of it, but I would seriously make an effort to wash that powder off, I don't think you really want to smoke that crap.

    I really think you have more problems than just bugs. First, 7 plants is really too many for 10 sq ft of space. More plants do not mean more bud. In fact, if you try and squeeze too many plants into too small a space, it usually results in less bud.

    I also think you have nutrients problems. What Fox Farm products are you feeding them and how much how often? I have some questions about the accuracy of your pH meter. I am a master plumber and I have never seen water that is naturally 5.2. Water that acidic would tend to just eat through copper piping.

    While we cannot tell you strain, we can tell you that the tall ones with the skinny leaves are sativa dominant. They generally start budding later than indicas and take longer. They can take 12-14 weeks to finish.

    Pleasse, please, please do not spray any more poisons on your plants! And keep a very vigilant eye out for hermies. I would be for checking the plants very well a couple of times a week.

    just got a new ph meter, a miwaukee 600 that seems to be favored here! and yes 5.2 to 5.4 is what my water is ph'ing at, well water and yes ive had to replace my pipes several times over the years for erosion, copper lasted 9 years, pec bout 5 years and it ate up the brass fittings, trying pvc now see how long it last! i started these plants out side and moved them inside when thay showed sex n started budding and figure i moved the bugs in with them, treated one time then and ant seen no more leafs ate off of!! im using the hole foxfarms line and pretty much following there schedule. plants are not topped and in 3 1/2 gallon pots. as far as strains i know cant tell other than ether indica domante or sativa domante. as skinny as thay are room ant a issue now but i do rotate them weekly and spin them every other day and got boxes under the short ones to raise them up to same level as the taller ones! already got a list of things not to do next go round, only did this bag seed grow to test grow room out and for what i can learn, next round will be with good seeds. thanks for sharing your knowledge and experience! with corrected ph and proper amount of water thay looking lot healthier and buds getting big enuff by the day to notice! starting week 6 in flower today!

    I am so sorry you used Neem oil. Your buds will probably taste very bad. In my opinion Neem oil is not the greatest. I used it many years ago and never had luck with it.

    When you have crowded plants you are have a higher chance for fungus damage. Yellow Leaf Spot and Powdery Mildew for example.

    With your PH around 5 it could be the roots are not absorbing the nutes you give them. Good cannabis nutrients given with the right amounts will help that.

    The leaves on these plants look a little droopy. over or under watering can so this. Plastic pots can be hard to tell if they need water and sometimes do not drain too well. I am not sure what kind of pots you have. I use fabric pots like these.

    Don't get discouraged. I think you are doing a great job on your first grow. My first grow was not as good as yours. :)

    I wish you all the best with this grow and your future grows.
