Turn your light off and take pics


There 6 weeks into flower growing DWC 2 600wat led lights.

What light are you using. I like to keep my Ph at 5.6 in DWC. What nutes are you using? Theres a ton of more experienced growers on here than me. What you think @Happilyretired @peachfuzz @Hellraiser

They sure don’t look like there six weeks into flower… It’s hard to tell whether you’re feeding too much or not by the PPM unless we know what you’re feeding… Different nutrient lines require different nutrient levels… Could we get a name and model number of your lights I don’t believe they actually put out 600 W each probably closer to 120 actual watts each…

Ideally you want the PH to fluctuate between 5.6 and 6.0. 5.8 is ideal. Between those levels the plant should be able to absorb pretty much everything it needs to. It looks like the flowers are small for 6 weeks, and I agree it could very likely be not enough proper lighting. Also, how are the roots looking? Any possibility of root rot starting?

Looks like too much nitrogen and not enough air to the roots and poor lighting…
At a guess…
Also if that big box fan is blowing directly at the plants , not so good either… :+1::wink:
I believe I spotted the culprit…
Cheap Walmart air pump…
Not enough oxygen to your roots for sure is a big part of the problem , that’s why they look like they are drowning…

Purple haze, blue haze, and super silver haze plants seem to be okay following instructions on nutrition lable and has done good so far water is just below net cup. They just started. Lights are just the bloom lights on witch is all red if I turn both it’s a much brighter purple light room temp is around 80.

Yes it’s a cheep Walmart pump with 2” round stone right under roots and the box fan in there. This is first hydro grow they been on the 12/12 cycle for 7 weeks there about 2 and a half months old.

How about filling out the Support Ticket?

Water level should be 1 1/2 to 2" below net pot. Air stones should produce a ‘rolling boil’ look. Water temps as well. Come on; if you want help please provide information.

@Lukeamccrary welcome to the forum!
Those screen shots might give up a little too much info, I would edit those posts the top of the shot seems to have some personal data. Linking directly to the product on Amazon is safer in my opinion.

Like the others stated we need to add more air. I use at least a 4w air pump per 12 gallon tote, and most people tell me should add more. And if you have the means i would seriously think of ordering a white full spectrum light like the HLG or one of the knockoffs on Amazon. Then return these burple lights you got in May if you still can. That first picture looks very red, do you have both bloom and veg switchs turned right now? If not I would turn on the veg again, most people run both veg and bloom switches from the get go.

Please don’t post anymore screen shots with your name and city in them. You can post links from Amazon, I would do that instead.

Not sure what is going on with your light, but it shouldn’t be all red like that. You may potentially have a light leak if you’ve been on 12/12 schedule for 7 weeks. I would like to see support ticket too.
