I remember now (well, after rereading!) This is where I learned to go ahead and follow the pH on three NOTG feeding schedule, even though it’s a little high for coco :woman_teacher:

@GreenThunder 6.3 does seem alarming huh? Heavy16 is 6.5.

Sorry guys just saw the posts and tags

@Myfriendis410

This is like a disease right? Purple thinning stem at base of plant. Only this one and I’m about to transplant. Don’t want to hide an issue but gonna bury it a bit during transplant. Thoughts? My only thought is I gave too many nutes I feed yesterday even though I wanted to water. First mistake is I gave them too freaking much cause soil still wet after 24 hrs.

There’s also no fan on them… That’s in the flower tent didn’t have any more was hoping to hold off but maybe this is cause

Thin stem is usually stretching plant, not enough light intensity. Also do you have a small fan moving air by the plant? That usually helps strengthen them up a bit too.

Unless someone has a better idea, I would try the transplant and burying a little of it. Then move lights closer and make sure that it’s has enough air to at least wiggle the leaves.

I’m not sure which if any of the nectar bottles contain silica? But that generally promotes strong healthy stem growth too.

Edit… seen you posted about the fan while I was typing haha.

Ok yeah I had a vipar 450 on them at 33in height. I think they are growing faster than I expected and I’m going to move the lights down to veg height. Hopefully that’s all it is. Thanks bud :sunglasses:

No problem. You’ll want that fan too if you can come up with something. That and the silica will definitely help just as much.

Damping stem can be a result of moisture issues in the soil I think, too?

@TDubWilly didn’t someone in the lab have this issue a few months ago? I need to medicate so I can remember.

Yes that’s exactly what I was thinking of @Bogleg I just couldn’t remember the name. By the sounds of it she’s toast but I trimmed her starter leaves and buried her a bit. Time will tell. I’ll have to be extra careful going forward.

Well I’m in hydro here and I did a couple things

  1. I started a silica feeding to try and strengthen her cell walls.

  2. I had let my top feed go to long so I just turned it off. This doesn’t pertain to you

  3. I let her dry out. I’m a fan of packing soil up the stem to help support it, but I like to tie it up and support it while it’s drying out. Once the stem shows a bit of improvement, then I will take my tie supports off and pack soil in and around the stem for support.

Cool thanks @TDubWilly! I need to look into silica feeding then. I definitely watered the bejesus out of her.

Tagless update. I transplanted all four into the ProMix, vermiculite, perlite mix into 5 gallon fabric pots. Added 5 tablespoons of dolomite to each and mixed in. If Amnesia Haze #1 survives that’ll be great. Need to order silica that probably won’t arrive until Saturday or Sunday. I’m taking out one of flowering plants tomorrow to put in 48hrs of darkness so I’ll be taking a fan from there to use.
