Drooping bud leaves

  1. Hello all,

    This is my first grow and I have done a lot of research on my symptoms before posting, but I'm not confident that I've figured out what the problem is with my Durban Poison so I'm turning to grass city for help.

    Here's what I've got:
    Rooftop outdoor grow in the bay area with a self-built hoop house for wind protection. It is never fully closed or the temps would shoot way up. Humidity is low in the bay area and our temps fluctuate from 60s to high 70s.

    I have about 20 plants of various strains in 5 gallon buckets filled with roots organic soil and some with fox farm ocean floor. Durban has been growing strong since the start of June and I began feeding with tiger bloom after she started flowering. Recently she has been drooping and paling. This started at the top of the central stalk and appears to be spreading. The bottom branches still seem robust and strong.

    Before this started I made the beginner mistake of using the recommended heavy feeding dosage for about a week and a half and backed off when I realized I might be giving too much too soon. Things were still looking okay for a week of plain water. I top dressed with a bit of hydro organics earth juice grow and soon after she started going downhill. I flushed twice, let my soil dry and have been keeping
    her on plain water since, but nothing has changed. The leaves look pale and lifeless and some have small gray or brown spots on the undersides as well as on the leaf fringe.

    I am not checking ph because i am a beginner and there are so many variables with our grow that I have not justified spending money on one . . . yet. been letting nature take it's course. I am confused as to why only durban was affected like this although I treat them all equally. Is this a ph issue, is it watering, nutrient lockout, what?! I do have leaf fringe curling on another and it is the last picture of the group
