It happens my friend don't get down. She'll recover fine you did the right thing taping her up 👍
I took the tape off and the stem recovered like nothing happend, but now I bought 3 more led lights, I don’t know if the lights, are too close, maybe I’m under watering them because, I’m putting less than a liter evry two ???, a deficiency, are the new lights burning them, those leaves in the middle where like that yesterday, but now the two of the big fans leave are looking weird, what can it be???? Thx

You're watering with less than a liter every two weeks or days?
I'd firstly pot them all into larger containers, 3-5 gal is ideal, this will allow them to grow a nice root system unhindered and avoid becoming root bound.
If you haven't got a moisture meter for the soil yet then you really need to get one, this will remove the guesswork from watering while you gain experience.
I'd be inclined to say over-watering is the cause of your problems, let her dry out for several days until she is really begging to be watered then give her a reasonable drench, that's probably all it will take to get her back on top form :)

I’ll transplant the other ones soon, the big one is in a 3.5 gal pot, and like half a liter every two days or so, i was waiting for the top of the soil to be dry about 3 inches down for the big one, the issue seems to becoming from botton making its way up top I believe, I cant really tell bcuz it’s minimal right now, the yellowing of the leaves, the true leaves dried up,I’ll take some pics, I’m waiting for my electronic ph meter to arrive and my ph down I’ve been using filtered lemon juice as my ph down, could it be calmag deficiency ? I watered her half a liter yesterday morning before you responded, I was kinda sure it was getting under watered but idk, maybe ph issue or deficiency.

Leaves aren’t too droopy either, I’m just kinda scared if I let It the soil really dry out my leaves will be worse, but againg idk bcuz I gave them sum water yesterday and it’s growing but I think the lower first set of leaves are getting discolored, I’ll let the soil dry out.

Also it’s really dam bushy lol Leavs everywhere up top and bottom, I moved a few of the leaves to get more light available for the bottom ones ,but most of them I can’t, especially in the middle top, it seems like it slowed growing taller, I know autos are small but, it appears since I fractured the main stem at the very top, its taking its time to grow taller and heal, right now I just see lots of more new leavs growing in the bottom. Can I make promote to grow taller ? Somehow

I can see slight tip burn in one pic, this is a sign of too much fertiliser it doesn't look severe, what's been added so far?
The crispy end of leaf on the lower leaf is a symptom of overwatering. If you grow organically you don't need to worry about ph management, making results easier.
In terms of making her taller when she starts to flower she will hopefully stretch a little spreading out a bit :)

I'd let the soil dry out until the pot is pretty light but the plant isn't wilting, then giving it a good watering at .5ml/litre.
To avoid build up of ferts it's good practice to allow for some runoff and/or give plain water every 3rd watering.

Is she starting to flower?
I feel like she’s over growing ? Idk
Two big leavs on the bottom have started to turn a bit more yellow each day, random hole on one of those in the picture?, sort of like a bug was eating it, but I see no pests at all, theirs so much leavs under that can’t even get light, should I pluck some of them, like that dying one with a bunch of hole?
I feel like the large fan leavs at the very bottom, the one with sets of three, are drying up a little each day
Thx

Hi @Stef420! Defoliating autos is generally not recommended so probably best not to. You're right it does look like insect damage on some of the leaves 🐛 You may need to start spraying with an organic pesticide to shift them.

Yup I can’t tell what else in making random holes , I looked thru my leaves, in top and under my leaves, I found a few with idk it almost looks like spider web, but it’s not a web, i think I might have spider mites or mites, what do think it could be cuz their is nothing in the soil, those springtails disappeared.
And my plant is showing sex, Nd it looks like preflower to me ?
