hey bizzy, i think the crispy leaves are ok. my white widow from last year showed the same burnt crispy leaves on 3 of 4 plants. my ph was checked daily and within good range. even the clones from those crispy leaved plants were the same way. the one plant never showed any of those, and turned out to be my mom. i think the crispy leaves was a generic thing in my case. maybe its normal for ww to do that.
