    I would flush the soil heavily! you shouldnt have used MG....

    Actually i take that back, MG nutes are released based on watering, so the more watering the more nutes will be released. I would let it dry out pretty good, and then once the soil is fairly dry still, but wet enough to maintain the plant, then slowly feed the plant again. This time change up your watering amount and times....dont water as much, and do it LESS frequently....Better to have little waters less frequently it seems with your soil!

    again, i totaly do not recommend using MG soil EVER!

    well the organic mg potting mix feeds up to 3 months on its own

    have you been adding nutes to the water before watering

    f you set plants up on a weekly fertilization schedule, make sure to flush containers every 30 days with 2-3 times the volume of weak nutrient solution (5-10 percent mix) as growing medium. This flush will wash out excess fertilizer salts that have built up. Also, make sure 10-20 percent of each irrigation drains out the bottom of the growing container to keep salt buildup to a minimum.


    also depending on the strain sativas tend to need less nutes than indicas
    so ive heard

    no havent feed them anything i figured the mg did that but i had them on a pretty routine watering scheuald of just giving them just a drink every 2-3 days except 3 days ago i gave them all a verry big drink do you think this contributes?

    i would just go light on the water and im sure you will see a change

    usually plants dont show a sign of problems until up to 2 weeks after this occurs

    ......"flood and drain".. Isn't that a form of hydro'?? :confused:

    IMHO.. the wilting hasn't anything to do with the soil or it's nutrients.
    Have they been in the same soil/pot for the entire 8 weeks?..
    Plant to pot size can affect watering schedules. Big plants in insufficient sized pots can cause need for more frequent waterings.
    Have you checked the ph of your runoff??
    Temps at canopy level??
    IMO, nute burn should be showing more on the newer, upper growth.
    Heres a link on http://www.ipm.ucdavis.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn7429.html thrips.
