pretty rare in hydro or cannabis but very hard to mistake when plant is infected it is done and any plants or cuttings from it will likely hold same infection


Hi, One of the things that has me baffled is that for the first 2 months, there was only one root. Even in your pictures the plants have lots of roots. Second, how could it possibly be infected? The paper towel they germinated in? Unlikely. The rockwool cube they are housed in? Maybe, but that is frightening to me as I can’t afford to have grows waste months of my time. I live in Canada, the cold part, so that is why this is done indoors. I guess my next move would be to sanitize all my growing equipment and start again.
TIA, Greg

likewise I live in Canada and yes sanitize everything but most importantly healthy roots equal healthy fruits :wink: even if not this specific disease which can vary greatly in appearance your roots were far from healthy or time invested to continue. Are you on well water or river either can harbor this disease

What about irrigation canal water? You got me thinking. I use irrigation canal water for my outdoor grows, but so do the farmers for all the crops .


No, I am using citywater…
