    My plants are 14 weeks old they are in an unknown soil, I am using floranova bloom by general hydroponics. Any recommendations on how much I should be adding? And last time they were watered and fed was 2 days ago. If you can tell what's wrong with my plants it's much appreciated. Here are some pictures. There are knat traps on the soil.

    Is that the on;y thing you are feeding them? What are you PH ing the water and feed to? ^.3 to 6.8 for soils is where you want to be at. I shoot for 6.5 for everything. I use GH 3 Part for my nutrients. It works great and is not expensive.

    Yes that's the only thing I'm feeding them and the water is at about 7 ph becuase I don't have ph down. Can you notice any deficiencies or anything?

    Like Hamster Lewis said, GH is a three part system, with Gro and Micro meant to be used along with Bloom. I'm using them for the first time this go around, so I'm no expert, but your plants aren't getting any Nitrogen with just the Bloom. The Bloom is 0-5-4, but the Micro is 5-0-1 and the Gro is 2-1-6, and they need to have those right through the grow, not just in veg. Grab some Fish Emulsion from Home Depot or get GH's Micro and see if that doesn't help. Green mojo for your girls!

    My bad - didn't see you were using FloraNova, not Flora.

    You still have to get your ph in range or nothing else matters. 7 is too high for the plants to uptake certain nutrients like Iron. So probably an Iron deficiency. 6.5 is the sweet spot for soil.

    I never found FloraNova Bloom to be good by itself. While I used FloraNova Grow a lot, I always went to either the 3 part Flora system or the 2 part Lucas system for flowering. I also always found that I needed to add Cal-Mag for the blooming period. However, until you get your pH in line, it is not really going to matter what you use. Proper pH is critical for proper nutrient uptake.

    And then again, some strains just don't like you or you method.
