BBA1 is in the Infirmary 12/3/17
The spindly twisted growth has continued.
The droopy late day blah seemed worse.
the pot is extremely heavy (overwatered)??
Autopots are are different animal.
Leaving this for journal purposes and any insight/input from our growers (realizing autopots are a form of hydro but not hydro; not soil).
I’ve cleaned my trays, valves, hoses and reservoir. Plant looks a bit better this morning but, that’s been her M.O. for a few days now!
It’s always something with a Screwauger Grow (my next might be with hand watered FF soil and FF nutes )
This is my infirmary “ticket” from a forum dedicated to growing with autopots
Problem: See pics below. Day 43 and has been stretching like a mad woman. 4 inches in 3 days! It has had this “twisty” new growth that appeared to sort itself out but now she just looks stressed and weird. Wondering if it’s just starved for bloom nutes? For past few nights the plant goes limp and looks “tired” and droopy before lights out then seemed to rebound by lights on but this evening was looking quite ill to me.

I have a second BBA that is 35 days old and being hand watered the same nutrients that the sick plant was. It looks healthy to me.
