New grower, how do my plants look?

My first time ever growing. Outdoors in pots. These pictures were taken last night as sun was going down, leaves not usually that droopy. 2 are auto flowers and 1 is a sour d mother plant. They were all clones. Maybe a dumb question but just wondering if they look healthy? The one auto flower just started flowering last week. I’m watering them twice a day, usually early morning and then around 6pm. Temperatures have been hot lately around 25-30 celcius. have been using light pesticides due to grasshoppers eating some leaves. Also have been feeding nutrients once per week.

I have just been using miracle grow once a week. One scoop for all 3 plants mixed with water.

In each stage of the plants life they need a bit different feed
Example Veg stage plants needs more n then k or p ratio of 3/1/1 npk till week 2 of flowering ( transition stage ) then weeks 3 through 5 decrease the n to 1/3/2 ratio I use jacks 10/30/20 at this stage then weeks 6/7ish ( depends on how long you run flowering ) the ratio of 1/4/4I use jacks 1/2 teaspoon of 10/30/20 and 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of jacks 5/12/26 Then weeks 8 till end npk ratio of 1/2/5 to boost the p reduce the amount of fertilizer after week 9
Look around to see what fertilizer you can get locally to fit these ratios
Let the fun begin

They look very healthy. I’m curious about the auto clones? Didn’t know you could clone an auto. Pretty cool!

Welcome to overgrow! Hot pepper spray works for hoppers. Neem oil may work for that too. But I’m not seeing a whole lot of damage on the plant, you probably don’t need pesticides. It’s okay to lose little pieces of leaf. It won’t bother anything. Remember you’ll be smoking that… if you kill the grasshopper, I know it’s a little gross and maybe sadistic too, but I crush them right in the top of the soil. Make a little food spike out of them. Hopper spikes. They are absolutely full of exactly what your plant wants because, well, they are full of your plants lol.
