A question from a fellow grower:
I am having trouble with my seedlings drooping and I’m not sure where my problem is.
I am using the cash crop 6.0 (from dealzer) with rx green
solutions that came with the box and growing 5 ww plants hydroponically.
The plants are 17 days old (day one being the start of germination) and my seeds sprouted on days 4-5.
Once our second set of (true) leaves started to form we added our nutrients (day 12). I started out slow on the nutrients to make sure I didn’t give them toxic levels (10cc of both grow A&B).
Im ph-ing my water to 4.5-5.5 mostly hanging around the 5 range
Water temp is steady at 69*
Box temp ranges from 75-85* with RO hum 35-45%.
TDS is around 500
Light schedule is 18/6 with the led light that came with box.
I also have a fan going in there part of the times to strengthen the stems.
The leaves themselves look good. One leaf is kind of twisted and another leaf on a different plant has a black spot a little bigger than a pen tip. The same plant with the black dot doesn’t seem to be forming roots like the others.
So my main questions are, 1) why are some of my plants drooping (they look like they are laying down, 2) should I be adding more nutrients at this point? I just feel like they should be growing faster and looking less droopy. But this is also my first grow and I could be paranoid.
One last question. My starter plugs are sitting in net pots that are loosely in there. Should I fill the rest of the net pot in so the light doesn’t get to the roots?
Any help/advice appreciated. Thanks!
