Hey guys since last week was having trouble with seeslings.
I started noticing flaring and slight fading,was told it was some deficiency and they wanted some food.slightly upped there nutes.and nothing special yet. Some leaves seem to be fading to light green and yellow brownish spots in some edges. :s please help guys. The roots are not showing yet through the pots either. Just decided to turn the lights off for a little to see if that hopefully it does some good.
Here are some recent pics. Please help guys
(Theres a previous thread i posted with earlier pictures and info on some of the recent problems beforehand.)
I added a slightly stronger solution of veg. Should i add some more? Please help i dont want to lose these babies.

No, don't add more nutrients!
Check the PH, could be problems with the roots.
Dont add any more nutes man.... Its better to be under fed than over fed
Yes.not so many as a net though. Roots arnt poppin through yet.
They have an "overwatered" look that suggests the roots aren't being properly aerated. What nutrients are you using? cn
I just lowered my water level for some reason.instict i guess.
The leaves seem to be flaring out a little bit today. colour is a bit more faded yesterday i upped the nutes .she was showin signs of nitrogen deficiency. Dsnt look any better. they arent growing
Im feeding them per 940ml water
1.5g calcium nitrate
.5 potassium nitrate
.1 sulfate of potash
.6 magnesium sulfate
And a drop of this aquarium dinosaur pee beneficial micro.boron zinc etc.
I have successfully done this three times before. I dnt know what im doing wrong.
Your nutes are way, wwaayy strong for a small plant like that (in my opinion). What are your ppm? You've got probable lockout and possible pH issues. There's no phosphate in there to buffer your mix, either.
I see three issues.
1) No iron at all. Plants need iron. And manganese as well as the classic micros.
2) No phosphorus as nutrient and buffer. No buffers at all.
3) Too high an ionic strength, pending a ppm/ec reading. Dilute with RO by a factor of 3 until signs of recovery, then dilute by 2.
That, and that "overwatered" look. Is this a familiar strain, or something new? RO water, or tap? cn
