Tell me how to adjust properly

I have 3 indoor plants, about 30 days old. I tried to give nutrients too soon and had nutrient burn. Last week, I swapped out water, and went straight reverse Osmosis water, no nutes, spray twice a day. two days ago, started to lighten up, added nutes. Still looks droopy and getting yelow, mostly the one with roots in the nutes.
Using Lotus Grow, if it makes a difference. Added 3 Tblespoons to about 20 gallons, as I didn’t want to burn again.
Why is this so difficult lol? Add about a tsp, to the 3 gallon jug of top off water. Sprayer is filled from nute tank. Do I need to change water again and fresh nutes? Raised PH from high 5’s to upper 6’s, ppm is right around 400.

Largest plant has roots in the resevoir, other two, are finally gaining ground. I was hoping to be flowering by now, but someday I’ll get there, if I don’t kill them first.

Thanks in advance

Temp is 79, humidity around 50

Can you add pictures?

Are you in soil or water…?

Soil guy too. However it’s sounds like deficiency or toxic, which doesn’t matter. We need pictures

I’m soil only. Sorry.

Ill withhold any comments until the sitrep is in. :laughing:

What strain, Seed bank, or bag seed- Girl Scout Cookies- from here
Age of plant- Seeds popped out of the rockwool approx June 27, so roughly 32 days old.
Method: Soil w/salt, Organic soil, Hydroponics, Aquaponics, KNF- DWC, with a drip
Vessels: Pots, Grow beds, Buckets, fabric pots- 3" net pots, rockwool cubes, hydroton rock, 25 gallon resevoir.
PH and TDSof Water, Solution, runoff (if Applicable)- PH 6.5, TDS approx 400… RO Water, starts at roughly 15 ppm
PPM/TDS or EC of nutrient solution if applicable- With nutes, 400 ppm
method used to measure PH and TDS- TDS meter, PH drops
Indoor or Outdoor if indoor, size of grow space- Indoor Super Closet
Light system LED, MH/HPS/CMH/Fluorescents, or other- 450 Watt Bulb with Ballast, I think HPS? Flower side, 600 watt
Actual wattage draw of lights- Not a clue. I dropped to 200, then 250, then 450… if it does adjust… Ballast says so, but I am not a rocket scientist
Current Light Schedule- 20/4
Temps; Day, Night79 Day… no clue night
Humidity; Day, Night- Right around 50%- Humidifier ordered
Ventilation system; Yes, No, Size Air extractor runs 24/7
AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier,- Humidifier ordered
Co2; Yes, No- No CO2 currently, although I have a valve. Would like to add in the future
If growing Hydro some additional questions:
DWC? RDWC? Autopots? Ebb and Flow? Other? DWC with top drip, although timer is 15 min, 4 times per day, would like to do away with
Distance of liquid below net pot (DWC)- 1-3 inches 3 inches I top it up
Temperature of reservoir- Thermometer in there, never read it…
TDS of nutrient solution- 400?

Are you saying you have a TDS meter but NOT a PH meter? If so you need to rectify that now. Drops are not accurate enough.

Discontinue drip!

So you are guessing? Buy a TDS meter too: who knows what your TDS is?

That looks like severe damping off to me.

I have a TDS meter. I do not have a PH meter. Will order it tonight. This copy and paste asks ppm 3 different times. I’m guessing that 1st is the plain water, then with nutrients. What’s the third time for?

What does severe damping off mean? Drowning?

Yes: roots need to hunt for water. Once you see roots protrude out the bottom of the net pot you can discontinue top feeding. The air stone should be delivering a ‘rolling boil’ to your nute solution and that splashing will keep net pot damp.

How far below the net pot should my water be?

1 1/2 to 2" is ideal. That gives enough room for air to get to roots as well as close enough air stone can keep hydroton damp.

When you buy a PH meter; get a good one. Apera makes a decent one, Bluelab is the king of the heap but pricey. You’ll want ‘Standard Reference Solution 7.0’ and of course PH up and down.

Sorry for the late reply. I musta got stoned and I missed it. What was the question again? :v:
