Os it damping off , pls guide

Is it damping off because its stem is turning brown but it is standing totally upright

Doesn’t look worry some unless it starts drying and withering. How high is your light? That’s a lot of stretch.


@Borderryan22 I have California Lightworks solarxtreme 500 400w and it around 3-3 1/2 ft from plant

I think the plant is fine. I’ve had a few get purple stems at seedling stage and they grew out of it. May want to drop the light a few inches to help avoid too much stretch

@Borderryan22 thanks for your reply , are they purple or brown, bcoz i think they are brown from bottom till top and my seedlings are around 7 days old and are some photos of my grow system , pls guide and give me suggentions and my grow tent and full system is DIY , i made it from myself , is it all good?


With that last shot, I can’t tell the stem color. But those are some pretty green little babies at the top. Doesn’t look to have anything bad happening there.

Let me find a support ticket for you to copy and fill out. I’m on the last few weeks of my first indoor grow and my setup is pieced together basically as well. The growers here on this forum have taught me everything I know about growing.

It is damping off but you should still be good. If the stem is smaller at the bottom than at the top. It’s usually from over watering. Which is the most common problem for new growers. Water in a ring around the stem and pay attention to the weight of the cup. Wait till it gets light. Seedlings don’t need a lot of water. :v::call_me_hand:
