Hello ! Like you said your ph was too low and you did the right thing by correcting it to 5.8 . The low Ph may have cause a difficulty to assimilate the right nutrients so this correction will make the balance. Looks like you have serval deficiencies and I think your ppm level is responsible for a nutrient lockout due to a salt build up in your soil because your nutrient level should make that vegetation stage a deficiencies free grow. I think you have serval def that will disappear with your feeding. Concerning coco over watering it is possible like you experimented It, I had the same issue by reading the same craps. A magnesium def is showing up and maybe a slight potassium def at a early stage. I don't use ppm values but ec and your ec should be higher around 1.5 at that stage and week 4 shows a 0.9 Ec instead of 1.2 ( and week 3 value is a week 4 value with 1.35 Ec ). I hope it will help you :grin::v::skin-tone-3:

Hey @beginnergrower , soiless you want to a minimum PH of 5.8 and to keep it between that and 6.2 so that the range of nutrients can be absorbed, but that's only half the problem i can spot. the gorilla glue is an "XXL" style auto which mean a slightly longer veg and a longer flower period... it also means higher yields though. what i'm saying is that your gorilla is not at all slow for a gorilla, most flower end of the fifth week - i know mine did. Yours is showing pre flower already so that s a good sign. I can see that the second problem you have is a slight over watering - why? because i guess you're watering all your plants at the same time , but the gorilla is a "low maintenance" strain which means you don t really need to water it as much as other strains. if you keep a stricter wet dry cycle you'll see it will perk up and stop drooping pretty quickly. hope this helps bro ! that's it ! :rocket:
