blah. im paying the cost for cutting corners. my tea i brewed was added but i pulled out my PREVIOUSLY super healthy blue dream in flower and all the thick white roots that were a good foot long had the brown slime a little. there was a little new growth on the lowest portion, but i took it to the sink and started spraying it off, i tugged gently to see their condition and most of the roots just pulled right now. they had lost their white healthy appearance. i basically lost all the long segments of my roots and i pulled them off so the plant can grow new healthy roots in its place. i'll be keeping my brewing bucket clean, and adding tea every 3 days regularly from now on. no more cutting corners no more bs. i have 3 super healthy plants in veg that i want to keep that way and the only way i see for that to happen is with regular tea from now on. the blue dream in flower the reason i thought there was something becoming an issue is i have some yellowing on the leaves for no apparent reason. the brown slime was choking out some of the roots causing uptake issues. i pulled all the decayed roots off about 12 hours ago and shes still perked up and looking healthy in flower. no doubt this will probably delay her up to a week. lesson learned. STICK WITH THE DAMN TEA EVERY 3 DAYS! dont try to cut corners, you will pay the cost.
