Planted about 1 month ago in Aerogarden Farm. The tank is about 10L (2.5 gallons).
I use Advanced Nutrients Sensi system which is quite good at keeping pH levels in check. I also use Cannazym (converts dead roots into food) and Hydroguard.
BUT… we had some very warm weather here and the tank must have gotten too hot. The leaves on one plant started to droop. Checked it and lo and behold the roots were looking gnarly… Don’t know if this was the right thing to do but I did the following:
Completely emptied tank and cleaned it with bleach
Trashed the dead one (pic below) with it in my hand
Stuck other two infected plant roots into a cup with hydrogen peroxide for 10 minutes. Rinsed w water
Cut bottom part of dead roots off… You’ll see the healthy plants and the infected ones (the one with two roots vs the one with the roots and bottle of water next to it)
Added TNC’s Mycorr thenutrientcompany.com/products/tnc-mycorr-hydro , Cannazym and Hydroguard
The water is now brown due to the Mycorr but no further deterioration appears to be occurring.
Should I cut more off of these other dead roots? Or let them be?
Any other thoughts?
