Well I've grown once before but with the help of an experienced grower.This time the entire venture is mine alone.So these are royal queen gorilla glue in a grow tent under a led light.Ive got a 1000w MH and HPS but it was getting way too hot so I had to go with the led until I can buy an ac unit for the room.Anyway I'm noticing that on two of my girls there are some curling leaves and one of them the tips of the leaf is changing color.I dont think it's the light being too close as the tallest one isn't showing any signs that I'm aware of.Im going to go buy a ph meter today to test the water but it was store bought spring water so it should be good.would appreciate any tips or insight into what the issue may be.

I've been noticing some weird clipped growth like this too. 

Some other photos of seedlings around here also demonstrate the "pinched" look. As if they have been pinched at the apical node. 

 

They seem to outgrow the condition as they mature. 

 

I'm personally curious.......

Why so much perlite on the soil surface? Is this bug prevention?

I've had a bunch of the "clipped" growth nodes to. Some one told me russet mites but I dunno. I had it across a bunch of strains.

Ok well that's relieving to know that they grow out of it lol.the perlite was suggested to me for light reflection and to prevent the soil from drying out too fast.if anything its pleasing to the eye lol

Well here is an update...The girls are getting so big so fast!!Can you believe these are only 3 weeks old and I got pistols lol?They're putting off a little smell now so I went ahead and hooked the carbon filter up and it muffled the fan a little bit but it's still louder than I like.Also got a digital ph meter and tested the run off which came back as 6.1.So I flushed it with ph balanced water and since then they look like they are bouncing back.Theyre getting so bushy I was thinking of doing some selective pruning but i have to do some more reading on the subject.

Well the girls are just about getting there. This has been a learning experience and I've Definitely made mistakes which is why my yield wont be too great but I got some killer herb from the look and smell. I'm thinking that these will be done in the next week or so. Which is odd because i already see amber Crystal's all over a couple of the buds but still plenty of blonde hairs lol. Not sure what the reason is for that

Don't jump the gun on harvesting these. Looking at your photos, it appears that you still hadn't switched cycles as of July 16th. On what date did you start the flowering cycle?

 

I haven't worked with it but from your posts it seems like you are growing "Royal Gorilla". From what I have read, the strain has a 8-9 week flowering cycle or approximately 60 days...

 

If you started flowering on July 16th, you are only 33 days into the flowering cycle or approximately 1/2 way through... Chances are you started flowering after July 16th so you may have even longer to go before these are ready to harvest. They stretch first and then fill out so you will find your flowers getting thicker, sticker, and more resinous as you get closer to day 60.... Let those calyxs swell!!

These are auto royal gorrila glue. They say 60 days from germination they are supposed to be finished. The 60 day mark is this Wednesday but I do suspect itll b a little longer than that. Once the hairs are red and the trichomes are half amber half milky I'll cut em down

Auto-flowering would certainly make a difference!
