5th week in flowering...bud leaves curling

Is it normal that the leaves near the bud are curling down?

I have them in 100% coco and water them every other day.

Anybody have any ideas?

Unfortunately, I won't be of any help but just wanted to mention that both plants that this has happened to me, have resulted in the same airy type buds as you have developing and they stayed that way.

I'm wondering if this has to do with excessive phosphorus as I remember reading that it can cause such airy bud. Though I'm not sure if the leaf curl and airy buds are symptoms of excessive P or they are completely separate issues.

If you look at this link in my diary, you can see the difference in the more dense plants versus the real airy one that has the leaves curling down like yours

It's almost as if the curl is a direct result of the bud not filling in correctly thus resulting in the leaves not being sustained by the bud causing them to droop or curl. But this is purely a hypothesis though

So you think it could be too high of phosphorus.

I'm giving it a mixture of the Budswell and also the line of Botanicares Pure Blend Pro every other day.

I had real similar looking stuff when I used PK13/14, probably the overdose.

Thanks! Are your buds fluffy because of this?

I don't know if I'd say fluffy. I attached a pic, not a good one of the leaf condition, just a good one of the bud condition. Check it out:

Yep, started week 5 today. This is my first grow so I'm sponging knowledge from wherever I can. I have no idea the strain, it's bag seed from some very nice product that I was lucky enough to find a few seeds in.

Your plants to look very nice though, and healthy! When I saw those types of bud leaves, I just attributed too copious amounts of resin in/on the leaves considering their location, and the rest of my plants look fairly good now.

Here' my total thread if you're interested

Well, they are 90% sativa so they still have like 6 more weeks left. I thought they looked a little small too for their age.

ill bump this old thread. ive had similar problems myself with the addition of the fan leaf stems turning red..... like to hear how things ended up. and if it was strain related or a feed problem.

5 week in flowering.
coco/ hydrotron mix 70/20 dtw fed once a day drippers 5min
canna coco a + b
pk 1314

flower week 1: a+B e.c 1.2
flower week 2: a+B e.c 1.3
flower week 3: a+B reduced slightly, pk added at 1/4 rec dose.. e.c 1.4
flower week 4: same above .... problem starting to occur end of week 4
flower into week5: tryin to solve problem. boosting a+B reducing pk ec 1.7 trying higher ec as I was told maybe due to under feeding.

coulple of questions..... I thought maybe overwatering causing the problem... but ive heard people watering 3-5 a day dripp feedin coco... leaves always have been healthy and almost praying,.... never drooping.

so im unsure if this would be the case... other possibility pk 13 14,,,, although strange to cause the single leaves to curl with PK,, thought nitrogen was the cause for this.

if anyway has any thoughts would be great if you could share.
