ElmerBud started grow question 2 years ago
Many of my seedlings are drooping, with some yellowing and even some brown spots. I think my increased watering schedule is the problem. Does that sound right? What corrective action should I take?

Hey elmer bud I saw that this question is 6 days old and was wondering if you ever transplanted them? You are correct that rockwool is VERY sensitive to overwatering. With those size cubes you want to plant them as soon as the roots start coming put of the bottom. But once you transplant them quite the opposite will happen. The grow medium you plant them in will pull water out of the rockwool so you will not have the overwatering issue anymore. I use perlite mostly but have used the clay pebbles, soil, coco and you want to plant them in something asap. Hopefully you already have. Curious to see an update on how they are doing. Good luck!

Hey Bud your plants look marvelous, watering is not the issue, Nutrition is. i myself don't start any nutrition until after i see the roots coming out like yours and after i transplant in COCCO. the first round of Nutes is rather weak in concentration. I also use only RO water or bottled water. In the beginning stage i use only PH adjusted water until rooted. PH is usually around 6.1-6.5 Veg and 5.7 flower. Hope that helps?:sunglasses:

Your plants look great usually the soil has stuff in it that’s burns plants when they are babies but they get used to it and it won’t phase them later down the road. Roots looking nice :seedling::ok_hand::grin:

@ElmerBud Hi mate anybody that will tell you to start your plants again obviously has had hardly any growing experience themselves Anyone can answer with fancy words etc when they use google but with all honesty your plants look fine mate
Just make sure to allow them time to dry between waterings which will give them a chance to breathe Good luck mate

Hey there Elmer ! I'll tell you what : you've been watering these just fine man, in fact looks like perfect watering, thing is those burnt tips are due to over fertilisation ... put simply those tiny seedlings weren't able to absorb the grow + bloom + voodoo... most likely it's an excess of N, perhaps from the voodoo or an N build up from the combination of bloom , voodoo and whatever N is in the micro... sad thing is, at that age if that happens usually the plant gets stunted forever, and honestly might as well restart with fresh seeds and find that sweet spot with your line up. Otherwise you can transplant them as is and try to muscle through... hey at least it's not a watering issue, you can tell because the leafs are not puffy, they are praying a bit, and the plant doesnt show any signs of overwatering-related stress. Hope this helps ! :rocket:
