    If it helps it's all good ;)
    Let us know the progress, remember to take a pic once every 2 days from now so we can see the changes.

    I'm pleased you are already seeing results, this probably means you took action in time:)
    This is most probably because the effected leaves were loaded with Neuts, the plant uses the leaves to store energy like solar panels :)

    In VEG you can get away with alot of mistakes but don't push it or it will stunt growth etc.

    Get a Water and Soil PH Meter, with $20 you should be able to get both on offer on amazon :)
    So from now on you can make sure you give them the right PH, Weed is more Acidic based so if you can balance PH from 6.4-6.8 in soil that would be just fine, so the sooner you get these tools the better.
    Another thing, Tin foil or anything to help Reflect light around them would be a good idea, atm I see you have No Reflective material to help the light, maybe a small grow tent would be a good investment but you would also need an air filter to help the airflow and with a carbon filter it removes smell - Be stealthy like a Ninja :blsmoke:;) Maybe with a nice 600W light inside high up so it doesn't burn during VEG and then you don't have to worry about changing light for flower, consider this a good investment:):weed:

    kind of looks like ph fluctuations.soil is pretty stable, but it probably wouldn't hurt to ph your water when you mix nutes, most tap water comes out over 7, which is too high for weed. some plants shrug off small ph fluctuations, and some take it hard.

    I'm glad I have well water. But I never ph anything soil anymore. I use super soil an mammoth p and never have any issues anymore but all my rooms are solid. Can't let all my ladies get stressed.

    This guy tried telling me that because I’m using t8s that the plants are gonna go into flower like wtf?!? Is that true. I have a lot of experience growing and last I checked unless it’s auto flower any plant will stay in veg until 12/12 am I correct? I understand the color of the lights im using are a little cooler for flowering but they get the job done for both so idk what he’s talking bout

    Yah no until you switch the lighting to 12/12 they'll veg unless they're auto flowering then it doesn't matter they flower when ready

    Yep like Lordhooha said, until you switch 12/12 normal stains stay in veg, autos basically do it all on there own even without light change cause they have an internal genetic timer I guess.
    My last autos were on 18/24 in veg then once flower started I made it 20/24, some do 24/24 yep 24/7 full light until harvest but i prefer to let them rest those 4hrs.
    The one before that had a fixed 18/24 from start to finish, Autos love light it's their thing:weed:. In theory I should 20/24 during autum/winter times cause even if the heat build up is noticable they still stay fine, whereas now i have a situation with 20/24, hot weather with damn heatwaves and finding myself using the AC more often compared to before:fire:. I should have made this run 18/24 but I didn't expect these weather conditions:wall:.
    So until I make a room dedicated to keep everything 110% undercontrol it will always be an experience in some way or another. Even if I use the same strain for plants, something different happens, I accept it, cause they are living things and individuals so in my eyes they act different even if similar.

    I'm mainly for Autos cause it saves me time and money.
    I remember the first times :) I was sure i had to switch them to 12/12 and was surprised they did their own thing and flowered without the switch.
    I guess at the time I only thought autos grew faster but respected the same rules as normal strains :D
    They do everything faster, average veg on most autos is 1 -1 1/2 months, flower can be 6-10 weeks so more or less the same time stay stay in veg but i usually harvest from 7-9th week of flower based upon their situation:weed::blsmoke:

    I guess city water isn't that pure... But so long as it doesn't give you problems I guess it's alright if your ladies like it :)
    In anycase Well water is better than tap water, in theory you shouldn't have chlorine unless you applied it :)
    Would be nice to know the PH difference of your Well and Tap water.

    I just transplanted most my plants except for two. I’m stupid and put two in a ceramic pot and can’t think of a safe way to get it out without smashing the damn pot any ideas

    let them dry out really good, then take a butter knife and run it around the inside of the pot, then hold the stem between your fingers, flip it upside down, and smack the bottom of the pot good and hard. that should get all but the most root bound plants loose with minimal damage.

    If you do it like he said you should get no damage or just minimal which will not effect your plants roots much, so don't worry if they look strange for a few days, they are just getting used to the new home.:blsmoke:
