    look how bad it's gotten!

    A few weeks back I posted some pics and got the answers that it looked like LED light burn. On these buds. So I raise the lights quite a bit but this condition has gotten so bad that I'm going to have to harvest this at the start of its ninth week. It is all through the plant. All the leaves and even now some of the sugar leaves are brown and crispy. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. All my plants do really well in veg and then I have problems within 3 to 4 weeks into flowering room. Should I stop giving them Bud swell and Mammoth P along with their other nutrients? They're on the Botanicare nutrient line. I use the bloom, liquid Karma, Cal Mag, silica, recharge, Mammoth p, and Bud swell bat guano. They are in promix, and 5-gallon cloth pots. My humidity is always between 47 and 55, and my temps are mid to Upper 70s. Whatever it is I've done wrong I am continuing to do so. I really need some help on this.

      The trichomes are all clear. I know she's not ready but at this rate if I don't do it and the next day or so the whole plant will be useless. The lights are now 24 in above the plant. The funny thing is is that this is a pure power plant clone, and last week I harvested a pure power plant clone that have gone into the 12 12 prior to this. Anyway, this plant which I've harvested was absolutely beautiful. None of this burnt dried Leaf problem. She went out 10 weeks. This is a pure power plant clone this one that's in trouble here, and for the life of me I don't know what it is.

      That is weird, what Canuck147 said could be it. It would be better if you could wait till at least cloudy. I've never harvested that early "clear" but from what others have said here it will be real speedy if cut before cloudy. Hope they turn cloudy for you real quick.

    Maybe your not getting enough airflow through the branches. Thin it out better next time. Or - I see you should have lots of room - encourage some branches to grow away from the center, best done when it is much younger.
    But if it is a clone being your problems - don't grow clones - stick to seeds.
    Or get a clone from anotha motha

      I apologize if I sounded angry at you guys. Not at all. Frustrated more with myself is more like it.

      Thank you. It is frustrating - I've had bud rot 3 times on the same plant last month. My problems were that the branches were too close together, touching too much I guess. Not next time.
      Treat every grow as an experiment and learn from the good and bad results.

      for your help Canuck147. I will try to do better next time. Speaking of that I just moved one of my large sativa leaning strains out onto my deck in a 20 gallon cloth pot. She's used to 75 ish degrees. I would have kept her inside but she's so big I know I couldn't flower her out with the height of my ceilings. Anyway just wanted to reiterate that I appreciate your help.

    Check for root aphids. They could have come with the clone.

      No I don't have root aphids. I didn't buy the clones. I start my own from the mothers that I've grown.

    If it were mine I wouldn't add anymore nutes just water sometimes less is better with these stubborn ones. I've done just that and also band it from the tent to just a sunny window maybe 6hrs of sunshine.
