    Default HELP my plants gone limp!

    Hi guys thanks in advance!
    I'm not new to growing but this is the first time I've tried DWC
    I purchased 2 x 20l dwc buckets with 1 6inch net in the top
    Yesterday I took 2 really healthy plants washed the roots carefully
    And set up in the dwc with pH 6.0 EC1. 2 hesi products,
    Then put them under a 400w HPS from the T5 florescent previously, (think this leap of light may of caused the problem *[https://cdn])the root temp is 17oc(maybe a tad to low I thought better than tad to high you see)
    I went and checked on them last night before bed and the rhino had started to limp so I sprayed it with water and put the water level up in the dwc bucket so more of the roots in the 6inch mesh bucket were covered it seem to purk back up after an hour,
    So I went to bed, when I've woke up and checked them the rhino was totally limp and the cheese was OK but not as springy as last night
    I've sprayed them both with water and turned the light of for now till I figure out the problem
    I'll put some pics up the roots are healthy but don't look it in the pic there stained from the soil I grew them in don't look to bad up close
    Oh yeah and the air temperature as fine between 24 and 27.5oc last night

    Any advice welcome!

    The plants look overfed & those roots just do not look healthy

    At first I thought root rot (which I wouldn't rule out either having or getting due to root damage) You may get away with it.

    More than likely a bad case of transplant shock. It could take them a good while to recover as all of their energy will be focused on repair work to the root system.

    Some beneficial bacteria may help them but it doesn't look great mate.

    Water level shouldn't be higher than ya net pots.
    I'd personally drop all nutes and re fill the buckets using a root stim only something like rhizo
    Also water temp at 18
    These plants have gone through a fair bit of stress and shock so I'd expect to see them go a little limp and feel sorry for themselves and take a few days at least before they recover
    The ec is much too high I'd set that with the root stim at 0.2 above base ec

    OK thanks for the advice guys I'll change feed to just root stimulator only for a few days then add a little nutrient
    So at 1.2 I've added 0.8 of nutrient to my 0.4 Standard Water Reading and you suggest I use 0.2 above my 0.4 SWR then?
    And shall I put a 200w HPS on them or put them bk under the T5 florescent?

    When you say beneficial bacteria is that the same as root stimulator or is there something else I can use

    I've also used the hesi super vit macro nutrients

    Imho opinion the ec like I said before should be just 0.2 above your base of 0.4 leaving your total at 0.6 .
    Dwc plants thrive with the approach of less is more .

    Another thing is can you have to much bubbling and air in the pot
    I have a bigger air pump than the 3w one that came in the kit
    I'm thinking can it be tough on the roots and even damage them if its to active at the root zone
