    I noticed one of my plants is not doing as well as the other. At first I noticed my plant fan leaves were clawing, so I fed them regular RO water for a few days, but now they don't seem to be producing nice buds like my other one. What am I doing wrong? The first image is plant 1 which is doing good. The next image is plant 2..not so good.

    What size containers? Take a knife or skewer and run holes all the way to the bottom to aerate the roots. Break up the top inch or so of medium and get it where air is moving . Too much nitrogen.

    Next feed eliminate any Grow and let cal mag cover that. But only water next time and let it dry out some.

    2nd pic looks like fox-tailing but I don't know. Not enough info given. What's the setup?

    What I did notice what this plant, is when I do water it the water runs right through the soil. So now I'm moving this plant into a bigger pot with some fresh soil do you think that will help? I will water it with cow mag only let me know

    Water slowly. If your medium is compacted the water will run around it as much as through it. Water first and then transplant .

    Honestly it’s not worth repotting at this point.

    I don't like repotting that far into flower, or flower at all for that matter. This is one of the reasons I only use fabric pots these days. I can literally set one inside the other if a plant needs more soil. Roots grow straight through the bag with no transplant issues. I've had to carefully cut windows into the sides of plastic pots during flower. Then I just sat them into a bigger pot of soil and the roots grew through the holes I cut with the razor. Luckily those days are far behind me now. I got my system down pretty good nowadays. I still sink smart pots inside other smart pots for teanslplant, super easy and the plants don't miss a lick.

    Well well yah looking at where he is in flower will do nothing more than stall her out and waste soil and time.

    I have taken butcher knives to the roots before. Not going nuts but 6 to 8 good plunges down aerates and stimulates root growth even late.

    People freak on roots too much sometimes. I pulled 10 hermie Chemdawgs and threw them into the woods. In July. In September they were still alive. In October they finally died after the third freeze. Nothing but root balls laying exposed.

    I feel you guys on that part of reporting at this point; but these are Autos and I figured to take a chance and see if I get a response out of that particular plant since it was fading on me anyways.

    I strongly suggest if you must. Take a razor and cut some windows into the sides of the pot she's in now. Then put that pot she's in inside a bigger pot and fill with dirt. The roots will grow out of the windows you cut on their own, and stress is way less likely at such a critical time. A fresh razor cuts those plastic pots like butter. Way better option than pulling her from her pot this deep in flower. Not saying it's not possible to do. Just way more likely to have issues.
