Help I'm a novice grower

Hi Everyone. I’m a novice grower and I’m having some problems. The leaves are yellowing and have brown spots. The buds are turning brown and no longer have a beautiful white color anymore. Some of the leaves are curling and some tips are starting to brown. The soil has got mould on it and they are in pots that I keep inside. I don’t use a tent or any flash equipment either. I don’t have a pH tester but have been told that the pH levels might be off. Because of the Corvid-19 outbreak everything in New Zealand is on lock-down so I can’t buy anything to help. I’m looking for some great advice, suggestions and home remedies to help fix the problems I’m having with my plants. Thanks guys

@Manaki I seen that you said you have mold. A quick fix to make sure your next crop doesn’t get it is to cut off lower branches by the soil. Place a fan on the ground to circulate air at the soil level.
