You have 2 four foot fluoroescents for 10 square feet? Thats no where near the amount of light you need bro, your plant is very stretched and yield will be low with that setup. 2 four foot fluoro bulbs are like 30 watts total, you want close to 700-1000 watts. gonna need more lights, shoulda had those HPS on them this whole time they work good for veg too. Incandescent grow lights are next to useless for MJ, get rid of them, if you need more heat then add more lights
If you used MG soil, everytime you water your going to release more nutrients, so don't flush it or water it anymore than it needs. get lights situated first or bottom leaves will start to yellow and die off from light starvation, then water when soil is dry. MG nutes IMO are very hot and it is almost impossible to keep from burning some part of the plant. Have you tried some organic nutes?

ok... so I added the hps lights, another pair of 4' florescents (these ones aren't plant ones, i went with the traditional cool white soft white combo). Tomorrow I'm gonna get CFL spotlights to go in the 3 fixtures i had agro-lite plant incandescants in. Hopefully that should take care of the lighting issues. Really appreciate the help everyone, i wish i had joined this forum before the plants were so far gone.
Still gotta work out nutrient lockout due to high ph (at least thats what i think the problem is). i'm gonna wait till the plants dry out a bit (which i assume will be faster with the hps lights on) and water the crap out of them with ph adjusted water. Would 5-5.5 water be enough to lower my ph from 7?
