DWC issue identification

Hey lads,
so this i my first DWC grow even though i have around 4 years of growing DWC vegetables with great results, im using the same mix i always use which is Masterblend 4-18-38 + Calnit + Epsom salt, the plant was started from seed and its an unknown variety although supposedly feminized (a friend gave me this seedling but forgot what variety it is)

im not exactly sure what the issue here is since this is the first time i've grown cannabis in this way with these nutes but after read a lot of posts from similar DWC grows with the same mix of nutes i just decided to follow what they all did which is RO water, aim for an EC of around 2.0, PH 5.8-6, now it seems to me like theres some strange coloration on the leaves, and they lack any and all shine, they look very matt.

before everyone at once point out the tip curl i already fixed this, the solution was a bit too strong, took it down from 2.4 EC to 2.0 and the newest growth doesn't seem to be curling.

even though most masterblend grows went for 5.8-6.0 PH i cant help wondering if this is the right ph for these nutes.. i;ve always grown veggies in 6.4 PH as this is what masterblend advocates on their site.



thoughts? thanks.
Clawing...looks like nutes burn

update time, so this is really weird but i think this isnt a real hermie.. is there such a thing as a fake hermie? its still making pollen sacks but once i stopped trying to remove them i discovered most of them dont even open, they just go yellow and drop off on their own.. they few that do open dont visually drop any pollen.. i think/hope they're sterile, anyways glad i didnt just chop it.

day 26, is this flower density alright for the time frame?

30 days into flower.. found the seed packet so i finally know the strain, its Skywalker OG, am i tripping or are these buds super lightweight for the time? shouldn't they have more bulk to them at day 30? i know i didnt prune anything so a lot of the energy is divided between all the colas but i didnt think it would have such a big impact, unless im tripping and its fine?

I think you are fine man. Not sure about all those leaves you pulled though. It seems pretty naked. My buds look similar in bud development just a little behind and I just started week 4 on monday. The only leaves I pull are yellowing or really crowded. I'm not sure how long your plant has left but mine has 4 more weeks I think. I think itll need the leaves to harvest more light to grow bigger buds. I personally feel like you over did it but I am such a beginner you shouldn't take my word for it. I don't know this as fact and I hope more experienced growers chime in.

Honestly im probably just as much of a beginner as you, i just followed guides and videos from other people but i might have overdid it? Not sure tbh.. it was pretty damn crowded before and it felt like air circulation was getting a bit choked off.... i got another 4 weeks.. its just looking at other grow journals for this strain the buds in those grows look much fuller and denser then where im at.. hope it picks up the pace.

Thanks for the input.

I think the side shot is misleading with regard to the leaves, just took this pic from the top:

still plenty of leaves imo, the buds look like this up close:
You are right it looks better from a different angle. I'm not sure if it's the strain or what but your colors look a lot better. Mines a sativa dominant strain. It supposed to be blue dream but I have my doubts. I'm getting some leaves losing color but it could be normal. Here's what mine looks like right now and I am a week behind you.

man yours looks great, looks much healthier then mine, i wouldnt trip at all if my plant was looking like that, your buds look just fine and the leaves are healthy, in contrast mine maybe a bit greener but its burnt to shit, suger leaves curling and stalled bud growth, worst of all idk what to change to fix this, im running 1300 EC which is actually less then what i ran in veg but if i run any higher i burn it, light is at the correct distance, temps are fine, i just dont know...

End of week 7 from flip
finally filling up but the time frame is all weird, almost all the hairs are white still, so i guess it still got a lot longer to go... every other skywalker OG grow ive seen is finished after 9-10 weeks of flower, cant imagine this one finishing in a week or two but hey at least it filled up nicely.




nutrient burn is also a bit strange as im not going over an EC of 1.4 which isnt very high..
