Ok so I'm approaching my first harvest and I might even have overshot it, and I could use a trained pair of eyes on my plants, as I have no idea what stage they're in!
I started noticing that my leaves are drooping a lot. I thought they just needed water at first, but they aren't really recovering completely in the mornings. Picture taken at around 7 pm. I haven't really noticed the alligator pattern I've seen people talking about. Only some slight yellowing tips on some of my plants. Specifically on my Cherry Red, but it's also starting to show on my cigar varieties.

Then I noticed my Burley had started to really yellow a lot in the lower leaves, and the upper leaves are also pale in comparison to the other varieties.

I also noticed that one of my Cherry Red's isn't looking very healthy.

Here's a different plant of the same variety.

Here's my Havana 608.

And finally my Criollo 98.

Sorry for the image spam, I'm just really worried that I'll screw the harvest up! Any help people could give me would be very appreciated.

The growth in the top photo looks very lush. Could it be overfertilization? If it is, flush the root systems with plenty of fresh water and don't fertilize for a while.

Ok, thanks for the help!
Last fertilization was three weeks ago. They have all flowered and I’ve topped everything but the burley.
Guess I’ll just hope the drooping stops by itself then. Knowing when to give them water has been a bit of a challenge.:)
