How big is your reservoir?
What nutrient line are you using? How much of each nutrient component if there’s more than one?

That bucket is too small to maintain ideal levels for plants. FYI.

50 gal. raw bloom npk.

what do you mean?

Are you using a reservoir? DWC or RDWC? What is your solution temp? Running Hydroguard or similar?

using a reservoir 50 gal. my temp is 70 and yes i just started using hydroguard

How far below the net pot is your rez level?

It might be a good idea to introduce fresh air too. Air exchange every 2 minutes is nominal.

You have everything else looking pretty good. Good temps, lights, the TDS is right for flower etc. What nute line are you using?

im using raw bloom. Before I switch to 12/12 I flushed my plants because I was using raw grow. Did I take away the nitrogen to fast because i read somewhere that you should wait to week 3-4 of flower to switch to bloom nutrients.

Npk industries has molasses in it, so keep an eye on bacterial growth in hydro.
I personally would keep the nitrogen through flower. Maybe @Myfriendis410 will say something different.

There are sugars present in other hydro lines. GH has a sweetener too. The stuff is pretty high in P and K which might be better for a bit later in flower. It also suggest cal mag: are you using it?

You didn’t mention rez level. How about root color

Because NPK Ind. has molasses and humic acids present, the roots will be more than likely a light tan. Tylan on the lab side thought he had an issue with his roots until I mentioned these two components that were present.

Hopefully the OP doesn’t have any slime stuff at least.

That humic acid will stain your roots to a root beer color for sure.
