Hello people ive been taking care of my babies for quite a while, one time i found some mold on the stem of the plant, i hydrogen peroxide to fix that. Now just recently this has happened, ive looked at a lot of stuff online and it sounds like a calcium deficiency to me. but i must say im quite the newbie at this. as far ive changed the plants water out and cleaned the hell out of the areogarden crap. please help me!! im open to any ideas upon what to do....DSC04389.jpgDSC04386.jpgDSC04384.jpgDSC04381.jpgDSC04379.jpg
not being funny mate, but if that is 3 months old bin it and read up a little more, we are here if you need help, but that looks fucked. overwatered and lack off light imho and your res temps are probably high.
If at first you dont suceed, fuck it roll up another fat one, theres always tomorrow!!!
this only happens to me when the roots are drying out....
raise your nutrient levels...
it lookes to me as you plants cant absorb water fast enough to replenish its transpiration rates.
this also happens to cuttings i place in the aero if they dont have roots yet, althought if u place the cutting directly into the water or nute solution it continues to grow without wilting like this.
is this a home made aero??? your water levels must we too low, and maybe your roots have rotted and turned brown??? can u check this, ive saved many plants in this state with just a watering (they are in pots, hydro non the less) i feed water to fix it, so its something to do with your roots.
and also those wooden stakes are perfect for mold to grow and they absorb water, use plastic.
although by now your probably hooped.

seriously folks this is the opposite of over watering... in a little system like that to stop over watering all u have to do is raise the strength of the solution so it takes up a more nute to water ratio...
i have expierience with this.
My res temps get up to 80f and my roots are all fine, i just do not submerge the roots in too deep water...
although the spray nosels in the aeroflo for sure add more oxygen then this little setup...
also an undercurrent set up i've had experience with get up to the same res temps, and two air stones in each bucket keep enough oxygen for my roots to be white.

i see stem rot
needs ventilation, more light
the idea behind LST is to train the plant down, making it grow lower down to the ground than it wants to.. making use of an abundance of light
what you have done is use sticks to support the stretching stalk as it reaches for the light it is starving for
but the biggest problem is the stem rot
