Leafs turning brown please help!

I am a total newbie but trying to learn. I planted a couple Blueberry seeds in my Areogarden a couple weeks ago. The seeds germinated in a few days and started out look good. But after a few days they started to get little yellow/brown spots which has seen taken over the first leaves.

Honestly bro those are way to young for food yet. I’m not a hydro guy but there must b a feeding schedule for seedlings. They are to small for a regular feeding it’s probably nute burn try to flush and lower dose of food.

@timmyv324

I’m not a hydro guy either and while I was moving his thread I to was thinking the very same thing. Never feed seedling until they have 5 true sets of leaves.

Yes indeed I think we went to simalar schools. Lol. From seed at least in soil I don’t feed for a good couple weeks after I transplant from solo cups that’s where I’m lost with the hydro cuz I don’t know if it would get any nutrients from the water as it would soil. Must be a seedling mix for hydro is what I’m guessing


#6

Pretty sure I offered my opinion on those same 2 plants yesterday?


#7

Sorry I didnt see the mods had moved my message…

I took @donaldj advice and reduced the nutrient level to 200 and my PH is at 6. I also added a clear cup to help raise the RH.

Do yall think I should stick with PPM 200 or should I go straight water without nutrient ?

I have also been using 2ml CalMag since Day 1 and 5ml Botanicare Hydroguard since Day 1 as well.

@M4ur unfortunately they are looking even worse today…


#9

It was confused as to why @garrigan65 was asking,


#10

Give her time… If you did everything people said you can’t do more so you need to be patient and wait for her :crossed_fingers:


#11

Yeah give it a bit more time. It may lose the bottom leaves as a matter of fact I myself would chop the bad leaves off so it’s not wasting energy trying to repair the bad leaves. The way It looks like some new growth is still going so if you trim the bottom leaves off it should keep going.


#12

Nutrient burn usually only shows part of it’s damage so as rule plants can look worse before they get better it is the new growth which matters. Damage rarely does full reversal but if new growth is light green we are getting back on track the new growth is looking healthy be patient.


#13

@Donaldj I went through the support ticket again. What do you think about the 45w led light he is using. Probably enough for seedling but seems weak for light. Maybe!!??


#14

I have only seen people use aerogardens to start plants not really finish them and yes bigger lights in the future but first lets get to the future :wink:


#15

Are you checking the calibration on your ph meter? That’s another area of possible trouble.


#16

Seedling os too young for nutrients. Never apply nutrients until plant has at least 4-5 alternating nodes. IN fact; You can generally go a bit longer. On these plants the roots are very small and fragile. Applying slats to them burns the tender little roots.
