Hey raaneal i see you mentioned wanting your buds to bulk up and that youve got just the phase 2 nutrient being ran. A relatively cheap and organic way to give em a boost is adding a teaspoon or more of molasses to each gallon of water. It provides a good source of much needed natural sugars for the roots to feed of and all the micro life in your base. Also being all natural it doesn't require as much flushing as other nutrients or bulking/sweetening supplements. Im using it now and its a great additive for those last few weeks of flowering. Best of luck. She looks good for a first grow. Well done, im sure youre gonna be satisfied no matter what. :v::+1:

Hi Raaneal, I hope your plants got over the thrips well! I know of growers that use the same potting mix as a base soil and add amendments such as dolomite lime and perlite. Perlite helps with aeration and drainage. More photos would definitely help us to help you. However, from what I can see the leaves are curling up (tacoing) which is a strong indication of heat stress. (Or russet mites which should have been treated by the neem anyway). Can you get an oscillating fan blowing air above the plants? Are you using any nutrients ?

Hello ! I would bend the stems to have a better light penetration and also remove some leaves wich are blocking light ! I'll also give only water to the burnt one and that's it ! Hope it will help you :grin::+1:
