So, not too much going on. The leaves look a little wilted to me. I’m not sure why… I’ll be changing the res out this evening with fresh nutes.

Are your lights on or off? How long?

Lights are 18/6 right now. Lights go off in about 4 hours (11:00)

They are looking good. Don’t be too over protective. In veg, I have my lights at 6/2. It’s the same amount of time, but being split up that way, it seems to me to be better. It also helps with my temperature on these cold nights

You said you are changing rez this evening. Go through this with me, as in what you are putting in, AND in what order.

Okay, so what I’ll do is clean out my bucket and refill. I’ll add my nutrients in order. I’m using AN ph perfect. Then ill let it bubble for a while. I’ll check the the ppms and ph. If all is good the plant goes back in the solution bucket in the tent.

Sounds good. Not familiar with the AN line of nutrients, but sounds like you got this.
Are you using Hydrogaurd, or does AN have a substitute?

Thanks! So, just don’t worry about the wilt?
I was using it… the temps have dropped here, so I wasn’t thinking I needed it anymore. I can add it I. If you think I need it.

Let me find my glasses and look better. Hell, I’m old

How high is your water level …?
And when you empty out the bucket are you also cleaning the air stone …?
You also mentioned that your temps have dropped , how much have they dropped…?
When you do your res change out , are you letting the water come up to the room temperature that the plant is in…?

I would strongly suggest hydrogaurd, you only use 2ml per gallon, and I personally wouldn’t do hydro without it. But I’m a rookie, maybe uncle peachy knows different

Okay, I’ll post a picture of the roots this evening when I change everything out. (Not home right now)
I let the bucket sit and bubble for a while after changing out everything, so the water temps are close.
The temps did drop here, I run my lights thru out the night and the tent stays around 76* F
I can use the hydroguard… no problem with that at all.
The water level is about 1 1/2” below net pot to start. She’s drinking pretty fast and I’m topping off every other day.
Yes, I’m cleaning the air stone also.
