My plants are dying! They are now about a 17 days old and not growing, instead some have bizarre leaves and yelowing tips. After straggling a lot to find out what could their problem, i came to the conclusion that soiless medium I bought came with and extremely high ph! Bastards! I found out after flushing my pots. Flushed with tap water ph 7.0 , runoff ph was about 8!
After that I flushed with 2 liters of water ph 4.1. I checked runoff again and ph was 7.9- still ridiculously high!
Does anyone know what can do to save them? Maybe transplanting them to pot with new soil? Is it better to wait for ph to drop ?

Hello ! Sorry but at least one will die whatever you'll do to keep her alive. The 2 others have a chance to make it if you follow all the advices given in the previews answers ! Hope it will help you :grin::+1:

It's recommended to always wash any soilless media before using it, but that does not help you now. I would get new soil or coco, whichever you prefer and transplant.

Hi @Cristiano420! Sad news...Well in this situation, I would wait for the medium to dry (maybe help it with a small fan), then delicately proceed to transplantation, by removing the old medium and repotting into a fresh one (CocoMix from BioBizz works great). I would use a smaller container to start, such as a 5L airpot/smartpot: this will prevent from overwatering and help the roots to explode with a second transplantation later in a bigger container (~12-15L or more). Once in the new medium, water with some roots-stimulator and a bit of Nitrogen, pH 5.5~5.8, and see how it goes. Hope they will recover soon, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

sorry for your heavy PH problems but I think if you follow @Stick instruction you will make it out alive

I would transplant her as soon as possible, and think about your watering skills,,, 0,2 l is much to much for such a small plant she will need only 2-4 cl (20-40 ml)

I think your idea of transplanting to new pots/soil sounds best to me. But I'd flush it really good before transplanting and try to get the PH down to around 6.5 before moving the plants. I think they should survive and turn out fine. You've caught it pretty early. Good luck :+1:
