No splashing, There has been so much rain past 3 weeks, I can only foliar feed. I guess it could have been excess nutes at the tip of the plant. 1st foliar feed was 2 and a half week ago. 1/4 teaspoon per gallon, then next feeding was 5 days ago, and was also 1/4 teaspoon per gallon. last feeding also had 1/2 teaspoon of epsom salt added to it.

now when you say watered 4x a day do you mean by hand or drip? or ebb and flow?
some more info might be helpful as pics are not always the answer, usually i just read what people say. sometime i glace at a pic, but who knows a picture can be worth a thousand words?

I use kind of an Ebb and Flow. I have a pump that bumps the water on to the rock wool which then dips back into the reservoir that the pot sets above. You can see the watering ring in the second photo. I also have a second plant in Fox Farms dirt that I hand water every other day that is doing the same thing.
And thanks for your help Arcturus. By the way do you know of a thread that deals with using a 18 hour day instead of a 24 hour day?
I have one hell of a serious problem..... no plants!!!! How the hell do I fix that?? lol
Fantastic thread man!!! This is on the top of my "read before posting a question" list.

and whats the difference between 18 hour and 24 hours veg? not much. i dont know of any threads that deal specifically with 18 hours light, but i have used about every lighting arrangment and schedule so feel free to ask.
Little red bugs that move quickely and White ones that look identical, also found spider webs on the plants. I assume im looking at a Spider mite problem, so I sprayed with Neem oil. Gonna wait a few days and Then transplant into different soil and change the location as well.
hmm that wont "solve" the problem tho. as long as they are not in flower i would get a pyrethrins based pesticide and hit suckers hard and early in addition to neem 2x a week. this would be a pretty good regiment for outdoors plants.
stop the neem and pesticide about 4-6 weeks into flower though and start spraying with regular water.
i wouldnt change the soil, but moveing them might not be a bad idea. the mites are coming from somwhere
