    Normal Senescence?

    I've got these girls at day 24 out of 55. The top is dark green and perky (it doesn't look very dark in the pic due to my camera, but you can see it is full) but the bottom leaves are a bit droopy and yellowing with many falling off. I know that sort of thing happens as the plant gets older, especially since there's far less light getting to the lower area now, but I'm concerned that there's too much too quickly. Do these look normal to you all?

    I've been supplementing them with calmag and a little nitrogen, and have the EC around 1.8-1.9, the maximum recommended for my nutes, so I'm not really sure what more I could do.

    Got scissors?
    Doesn't look good to me - top looks nice - bottom not so.
    Leaves hanging like that - in my opinion - tend to feel kinda damp (unless you have good air circulation) and then worse things happen......................

      The air circulation is pretty decent, and there's a dehumidifier running so they aren't really damp. The lower leaves are also dropping pretty easily.

    I think it sounds like your doing everything correct. This could be nothing but normal shedding of old leaf as they go through the mid to late flower stages. Those are worthless pretty much now so i'd remove them. Some more thoughts will be here to help.

        Just checked the roots on two of the plants - no discoloration or smells present. Thanks for the suggestion

        Glad to hear that. The fix should be pretty easy then.
