    adding photo linksHey so here's the deal. I have searched for hours looking for the solution to my problem but am not 100% I've found it yet.

    My situation is I have 2 plants both 1 week into flowering, looking very healthy, short and bushy, perky and such but in the last few days they have been dropping levaes. Some leaves wilt and hang there, some drop right off as they are without wilting, some are slightly yellowed.

    I have check the ph, 6.5, which should be right. I cannot say the exact nutrient levels im using but it is the same as I have used before successfully, so im assuming that's not the problem. It's 11-13-16 with a small about of pk13-14, like 1/2 ml per litre. The plants are showing no signs of burn on the leaves. I also flushed incase there was a salt buildup, is that even possible with organic fert? I have also treated for thrips using pirethrum, sprayed a small amount and watering with it for the larvae, I've had a few minor cases of thrips before, always solves it. I also should note that temps near tops of plants are between 25c and 30c.

    Sow ith all this done to no avail I have come to the conclusion that it's my soil mix. I have not added perlite or anything else like that, just using a standard multipurpose potting mix, which worked for my 1st grow (much smaller plants).

    Is it possible that the roots just arent getting the air they need? If so is there any way I can nurse these plants through another 6 weeks of flowering? At this rate the plants will have nearly no leaves in another 6 weeks for sure.

    I can post photos if you like, but there isn't much to look at really apart from good looking plants and a pile of leaves :(

    BTW the two plants are clones off a plant which had the smae problem, could it possibly even be bad genes?
