Welcome to the forum @opaljhale. You have a pretty limited amount of posts you can do for the first 24 hours.

I can’t help with the problem as I don’t get issues like that and you are in good hands with @Myfriendis410. :+1::+1::+1:


Transplant shock maybe?

I don’t think so. I’ve done enough transplanting and I have never seen something like that. But who knows. Not enough details as of right now.

Just observation: It looks like you may have wet the leaves and whatever soil/medium has dried on the leaves, maybe over watered after transplant. How did the transplant go? any issues or accidents while transplanting?

Waiting on response to service ticket. Although that looks like coco so the pH you posted is too high. Idk if that’s THE problem tho. Never seen that over a 24 hr period. Following.


Yeah that color doesnt happen over night was my thought too, hence the conclusion of coco on the leaves idk…

Lets wait for the OP to respond to the Support Ticket. Not enough info.

Maybe your right about the coco mix I transplanted it too. Will this hurt the plant or stunt it’s growth at all?

Is your coco mix just coco and perlite? I pH to 6.0 I think it’s 5.5-6.5 so 6 is the sweet spot for me. It could be in lockout it could be shock. I would give it some ph water and wait and see if it bounces back. Was the coco dry when you transplanted it and you watered after?

I try not to really mess with the leaves in the seedling stage. This stage is pretty crucial for establishing its roots and hyper sensitive stage.

Too much water can kill or stunt your progress. I say this because from your provided pics i see a damp circle about 6” in diameter around the seedling. At this stage I’d be watering about half that diameter or even a quarter of that.

Too little water can kill or stunt too. I check my seedling 3-4 times a day to make sure they aren’t too dried out.

A rough transplant can slow things down as well. I see that red color of coco on the leaves and only assume the seedling came in contact with it.

I have not entered the coco medium arena but would think you want those leaves clean and clear. I’m unsure if coco would burn or damage, thats something coco growers might know.

Others with more exp with coco can chime before doing anything drastic, but if i was in the drivers seat i’d maybe try to lightly mist off the leaves. However i dont suggest doing this with your light on and wait to introduce the light after the leaves are completely dry. Also not too much mist because the weight of water droplets could bend the main stem causing damage.

The other route to go is let it be. Let it correct itself naturally. wait for the new growth to come up.

Any updates on your plants?

Thank you for asking. My plant died. I was hoping it would come back but it didn’t. I have 4 new seedlings however and they are looking great!!

Well that sucks bro. Like @Myfriendis410 said a support ticket will help us help you out.
