    Default Plants not looking good.

    Hello lads I’m scratching my head with this latest grow.

    I have x10 star dog cuts that started off fine, i topped them then couple days later their leafs started drooping and i haven’t been able to pick them back up for the life of me.

    They are in coco,
    Feeding dutch pro hydro/coco grow 1ml per litre,
    Rhizo at 1ml per litre
    Ph 5.8 - 6.1
    Watering once a day.

    I have lowered the feed, fed plain phed water for one feed and also let pots dry out more as it looked like to me they was being over watered.

    Temp 25 have tried lowered temps
    Humidity 40-60%
    Water temp 19-21

    Lights are about 24” away. 400w mh.

    Ive also tried giving more extraction on my sms controller in case they not getting enuff fresh co2.

    All seems to make not much difference .

    I will mention that two plants which was on the floor separate from the rest seem better than the others. Fk why. Your see them amongst these.

    Any input appreciated guys.
    Thanks

    You don't need to water everyday, pot should be noticeably lighter when needs watering. In my experience this works well. They look overwatered to me. Try more perlite in future if you want to water more often. The roots need to breathe.

    I think your issue is with the water temp. And it could be that your thermometer is over reporting. I have one like that, it is out by around 3 degrees. Money wasted but hey.

    I had a plant that I had to put on the windowsill to get some sun, it was colder there and she drooped like yours. Once she was back in the tent, she was okay again.

    Good luck, hope you find a solution for them. They otherwise look a healthy colour and strong, going by the size of the leaves!

    Hay Jesse ok thanks pal. I may have been keeping them too wet. So I have been letting them noticeably dry then water.

    How you doing captain. Yes its first time using dutch pro and am used to using canna coco at 1 ml per litre in veg maybe dutch pro needs more to up the ec.

    Next feed will be more stronger mix.

    Default Plants not looking good.

    Fed them with an ec of 1.0
    Made up from 8ml of rhizo in 6ltres of water
    12ml of a& b in 7 ltres
    3ml of silica buddas tree in same

    Ph 5.8
    Water Temp 18

    Come back from work and they look slightly worse. So back to drawing board.

    Maybe leave them to dry media out. Fml
