Girls are looking a lot better now. No water today. Temp. High 80 low 74 Humidity high 70% low 55% Leaves are going back to normal very fast. Leaves are standing back up nice and perky. Looks like a did the right thing. Shade is still in place. Might remove in the next couple days if they keep rebounding this fast. So happy 😁 Might not slow my grow as much as I thought.

Ok peeps. I think my girls are all doctored up now. Only time will tell. I overwatered. I transplanted to bigger pots. Removed all of the old soil I could without any roots breaking. Add fresh new soil. Put my lights 36 inches away. Added a shade cloth while they are recovering. Didn’t see any visible root rot at all. No more water till they are almost completely dried out. No nutes till then either. This is gonna slow my grow by a couple weeks but atleast I will save them from the reaper. Ty to all those that gave feedback on how to fix them. To be honest I think they are looking better already. I am going to leave them shaded and no water till almost completely dried out. Tyvm again to those that helped me out.

Cannysnake Thats great! Good luck

Day: 20

Temp 83 Humidity 51% Lights are 24/7 Seem to be turning a lighter shade of green. Nitrogen deficiency? Nute lockout? Water PH is at 6.2 run off is 6.8 Only dosed with nutes 1/4 strength once at 14 days I think. Going to transplant to 1g pots today. Starting nutes today also. Unless you guys think I should wait on transplant and nutes. Root have reached the bottom of the cups. Lmk what you think and what you would do.

FTGrower Alright guys and gals. I replanted the girls in new pots. In 1 gallon pots now. As I was replanting I looked at the roots. All of them look great. Nice and white no discoloring. I definitelyover watered tho. The bottom soil was pretty soggy. I removed as much of the soil as I could without disturbing the roots or atleast as little as I possible could. It took me almost an hour to replant. So when I say I took my time making sure not to disturb the root I mean it lol. I’ll post up some pics in a sec. one of the plants has some brown spots on it. I’ll try to get a close up of it for you all. Could really use some help here. Tyvm Temp 81 F day 75 night Humidity high 65 low 45 Nutes 6 2 4 given on day 14 No nutes since

FTGrower Leaves are kinda droopy. To much water maybe? Comment and lmk what ya think. Light is a king plus 1000w full spectrum w/ uv and IR about 18 inches from plants. Water - PHed rain water to 6.5 Humidity varies from 47-68 % Temp 75*F night 85*F day


NickYo Definitely to much water. It is better to under water rather then over water due to root rot. You plants will bounce back much quicker from under watering. I would wait maybe 2 days before watering again.

FTGrower Ok awesome tyvm for the feedback. I was thinking to much water. Thank you. I’ll cut back on the water some more.

FTGrower Need to make a better drip tray. Just used some old black bubble wrap doubles up to make a square tray to catch any loose dirt/water/whatever. Think I’ll just try to find a 4 inch deep plastic tote or something like that. Any ideas leave them in a comment.

Cannysnake Try getting some more dirt for more room for the root to go down and burying your plant down deeper so it grows faster

FTGrower Yup. I kept in starters till roots started to come out. Then buried to about half inch below oval leaves. In a solo cup now.
