Grow Four, what else will we learn?

So I've finished grow three "Third Time is the Charm" and due to a lack of time on my part. I've compiled most of grow four's vegetative state into a slide show.
What I have at the moment is:
2 - Kandy Kush x Skunk(1 male for pollen)
1 - Quasar
1 - Emerald Jack x Grapefruit Krush
1 - Super Sour Og x Grapefruit Krush
1 - Skunk47 x Grapefruit Krush
1 - Critical+ x White Widow ( had two and choose the one with more crit+ traits)
Recap: from previous post on last journal.
My plants health went to hell because I decided to try cut 1/3 Miracle Grow "moisture control" and 2/3 Fox Farm soil, which turned out to retain to much moisture even cut.
So they are a little stunted from the MG soil incident and a little droopy at the moment as they were recently transplanted and I really want the roots to fill out the pot before flowering. I've started using the organics to supplement my Fox Farm nutes, as I've had a difficult time achieving a 6.5ph using any more then 1/2-2/3 of a dose depending on veg or flower. I started with 1/3 dose in 1 gallon pots of organic nutrients at 2 weeks then did another 1/3 dose "2+ weeks later" after they had been transplanted into the 3 gallon pots. They have also been given two 1/3 doses of Fox Farm Grow big 6-4-4. I've tested the run off from the one male Kandy Kush I kept and it's PPM was 1211ppm 6.5ph, which sounds hot but it looks fine. The Quasar looks a little over nuted, but nothing major. Another little thing I've done to protect my sanity is put labels on the pots, so I can mark which when has been nuted. Since they all want to drink and eat at different times.
Current nutrients I'm using, looking to add Azomite "trace minerals"
The Kandy Kush that has three sets of leaves is still growing that way and I must say she is growing very quickly.
The one I named Trinity as she has three sets of leaves and branches. They all lost the bottom few sets of leaves and you can see some of the damage, in all they are about 10 days behind schedule.
