    With those buds on them it should be developing a smell. :)

    You got a bit of nute burn going on there and it's worse near the tops because it's hotter up there so more water and the salts from the nutes are going to those leaves. The water gets evaporated to cool those leaves but the salts get left behind and burn the leaves. It will likely get worse as time goes on.

    The curling up of the leaves edges is an indicator of heat stress. Radiant heat from lights can really warm up the tops.

    You don't mention how they are grown and what they are fed or the levels of feed. Handy info to have when trying to figure out what's wrong with someone's plants tho your problem is pretty evident.

    They are looking to be about 5 weeks into flower? I'd not feed them anything for a couple waterings at least if so as they need less feed late in flowering and cut out nitrogen completely if you can. They seem to have plenty of that already going by how green the lower leaves are this late in flowering.

    Good luck!

    :peace:

    That implies you add a little more. All factors would be helpful. I seen in your pics you have cloth pots on wood. That smell is prob the build up of funk at the underside of your pot. They have trays that elevate. I live in the desert so periodically I trade mother nature a few hours of trash cleanup in the desert for some shale to set my pots on. Im hoping its the smell of your ladies entering maturity. But I bet its those pots. Even though they are in catcher trays they are sitting flat in your runoff. By the time you hit about where you are in flower is when that heavy cat piss in a tarp smell comes from a badly breathed pot.

    What are they growing in then? Can't be just epsom salts feeding them or they wouldn't have got this far and be developing toxic salts buildup. What is your water like? Hard water adds salts that make matters worse.

    Must be rich as hell then if you've got them this far without any added nutes. Are you not using anything for the flower stage?

    I used a tad bit of big bloom one time in early flower that’s it the lasts couple feeding I used epsom salt thinking maybe the magnesium would help then this so I flushed a bit to prevent it to spread

    They look good but how long have they been flowering? I was guesstimating 5 weeks.

    Usually bloom boosters are used up to about week 5. I start mine about a week before flipping to 12/12 to give them an early boost. I mostly use soilless with AN nutes and Big Bud for my bud booster. Should have some DWC tubs going fairly soon.

    Some epsom salts are good to add for the sulfur and the magnesium. Sulfure is the "secret" ingredient in most bud boosters and Big Bud has lots along with a bunch of amino acids and an NPK ratio of 0-15-35. I've been using it for about 15 years and hate to grow without it.

    :peace:

    Can go as long as you want. :)

    I like to crop when the trichs are half cloudy and half clear with maybe an amber here and there but not many. Full cloudy is OK too but I don't like to try to wait until lots are amber as it seems to add another month to flowering if they go amber at all. My CBD girls look totally done but almost all the trichs are still clear so I may start cropping tonight. I like to take all the large colas first then let lower ones ripen up so cropping can take a couple weeks.

    These ones I'll just take as fast as I can as I want that room for starting up a DWC tub or two right away. The one Otto#1 girl will be the last to go as it still has a lot of white hairs and the buds are just starting to fatten up and the trichs filling out.
