Has anyone seen this issue with leaves curling and turning dark after about a week of growth. I'm using store bought spring water ph'd to 6.5-6.8. Only watering once a week.

Hey there so over watering can cause this droop effect, but being in only 1 gallon pots and your plants arent just little seedling, they're nice looking young veg plants. Under watering can cause this similar symptom, hows your fans? Do you have some that are going all day or most of the day? The majority of your photos seems pretty dry soil, not muddy or extremely dark with water. Watering once a week doesn't sound excessive to me. When you do water, do the plants perk up or do they stay the same? If they perk upwards then they're under watered, if not then look into extending you waterings a few days more than a week, or up your air flow around the top and bottom of your grow space. You could also try a mild feeding of kelp extract as this is a common "plant tonic ".
Happy growing friend, I'm sure they'll battle through since their over all health doesn't seem too severely bad as of yet.

Hey there. Both Bulbi and Athos are correct. They have both helped me with issues before. Different issues but none the less they helped. When transplanting it is really hard to not shock the plant. Make sure what you are transplanting from has the right amount of moisture to stay together for an easier transplant. Also I have had a ton of success with Mykos and Azoz applications during transplanting. Really ensures that you get nice healthy root growth. Sorry to say but you are definitely over watering. Which will slow down everything you are trying to achieve. Get a nice feeding schedule going. I use an actual calendar that I mark out for every day I need to feed water and also nutrients. Every other feeding is of course, my nutrient blend of choice. Good luck my friend. Not a terrible problem but can definitely lead to worse things if not corrected. You got this!!!:wink:

Two issues here. The first is transplant shock when you transplanted two weeks ago, it was too soon and so the rootballl could not held the soil together and the roots were damaged. The second issue is some over watering, you are watering until you completely saturate the pot, which in this case is wrong, you need to give it much less water, for now let the soil dry up before watering again and when you do water, give it a cup of water, no more.

hi there so you have a pretty normal problem : overwatering, you can see from the "puffy" space in between the veins of the leaf and the wrinkled leaves that you're overwatering , this will actually shock the plant a slow growth. this article tells you what's going on with the leaves : here s a fool proof technique that will help you figure out when you need to water : ... Good news is that you caught it early and the plant. Recover quickly. Hope this helps :rocket:
