Just came across this grow. My friend if possible try to lower your ph to 6.0 to 6.3 this would be better for your plants to use the nutrients better. The other is something you can't control is the temperature is so high you would need a very high humidity to keep her happy. She is suffering from VPD (vapor pressure deficiency) so she's trying to conserve water in her leaves that's why they are curled up in a canoe shape. This causes less transpiration from the leaves meaning Her stoma under the leaves are closed not taking in as much Co2. Shes also not drawing as much water and nutrients through her roots. You can trying to use a 1/4 strength foliage feeding a couple of hours before sunrise or late in the evening after sundown. Hopefully you can catch her with her stoma open. Try to get her a couple of times a week with a very fine mist sprayer. Don't spray her in direct sun light you'll burn her leaves. Good luck you have a very difficult growing environment to deal with.

Hey there, I had some wind and rain troubles last year, when i could move them out of the direct blast i did. But eventually i used 3-4 plastic tomato stakes and tied the plant to it to keep from excessive shaking. You could try that or some short bamboo stakes. If you can start giving your plant a silica product that will help make strong stalks and more resilient to weather and abuse. Either potassium silicate or i think greensand if you're into organic. :v:

hey man, you'll probably want to add cal mag for the stem strength (silica is also a plus !) , see also those burnt tips on the leaves, probably you wont need to feed anything for at least two more weeks. The "twisted" growth is probably due to the orientation of the plant compared to the sun... Hope this helps ! :rocket:
