Will my buds make it to harvest?

The girls ( three Acapulco Gold plants) are in Promix General Use, 5 gallon pots, feeding New Earth nutes, Smart tea and Custom Bloom. They all seemed to be really healthy before I had a Fungus Gnat infection, that’s when the leaves started yellowing, the Promix takes forever to dry out. They are 4 weeks into flower today. After the Fugus Gnats I had what I thought to be nute burn, I have flushed them out twice, most recently 7-14-21 with about 7 gallons of ph-ed water each, fed them full strength, they are still not dry enough to water again.
They look pretty sick right now, but the buds seem to be getting fatter every day. I kind of got off track.

My real question is do I have a chance of having a half way decent harvest, or will they die on me first?

Check your run off they look super hungry and they arnt anywhere close to being done. Check your ph and your ppm.

Thanks Diesel, My Ph has been good all the way through, I have varied it from 6.0 to 6.9 the entire grow. I have never checked the ppm. I fed them full strength after the last flush and they are not dry enough to water right now. I guess I will feed them full strength again this next watering. I’ve been leery of feeding them more with the burnt curled up tips, but I will do it. If I don’t screw them up from here out, do you think they will make it?

That are hardy plants and take a ton of abuse. You might not get max yeild or potency but you’ll end up with bud. Now what u cand do is just take your distilled water and run it though to get a runoff reding of the plants it won’t hurt them. See where your ppm is and if they are hungry feed them. If its taking a while for your pots to dry water less. But more often for a few feedings. Test your run off and let me know the ppm. The fungas gnats are more that likely because the soil is always wet, but might as well fix your nutrient problem now then you can let the pots fully dry out before u water/feed again. You only want to water until about 10 percent run off. You don’t want to swamp the soil.

Also the effected leaves should be taken off and focus on the new growth because they will not recover their green. Take all those big fan leaves off

Thank you Dieselgrow…Will do…

I wouldn’t feed them a single drop until I verified what happened with her. If it’s a soil ph issue it won’t matter how much fertilizer you pour in. I’m not an expert here but with the many colors, thin leaves with claws, and rusted out look it seems likely that without immediate special cares your plant won’t make it to harvest. None of the fan leaves that are damaged will recover and depending where you are in flower they stop making more fan leaves.
I suggest a support ticket, so those that are pros here can help you through.

Thanks Docnraq, I guess I just put Support Ticket in the title?
Not really sure how to do it.

@Dino1, oh no! One picture looks like they’re starving to death, so I can see what looks to me as nute burn. In my opinion since you have them in shock give them some water 6.3/6.5 water for a few days, new growth spurts you should see. Maybe 4 th day depending on the growth then I would do a feed, three-quarter strength. See if that helps, I’ve revived a few plants that way from, myself and friends before. Hope that helps you with your grow, happy growing

They definitely need a hefty bit of nitrogen in fact they probably need everything NOW you may need to get some hydroponic nutes and give them double doses for a few feeds because you flushed them to heavily
