    Root Rot
    What causes root rot? Low Oxygen levels. (DO) Dissolved Oxygen. Temp's are the main reason for root rot, Low temps will lower the DO levels and high temps will cause low DO levels. Keeping temps between 65 to 72 will allow MAX DO levels or max o2 for roots. (Thank you so much for the information syko2! has provided above!)
    Over watering also causes root rot, Root Rot infects parts of the roots, which then spread infecting the whole roots causing death, Root Rot can be caused by to high of temps in hydro as well as over watering. Not enough drainage in your soil can cause Root Rot, even signs of it looking over watered, because the soil holds moisture to long for the roots to dry out. So these 3 things are all connected together. The main one that causes everything is over watering. Once you find out you have root rot, depending on how bad the problem is, you can add H202( Hydrogen Peroxide) with your water or hydro setup to kill the bacteria caused from root rot. If the plant is severely taken over by it, there are only a few things you can do, cut off the roots affected by it depending on if its hair roots or tap roots, add H202, or just chop the plant. To prevent Root Rot, adding product's like Thrive Alive B-1, See Weed, Super thrive will help protect your plant's from root rot and will help cure root problems. ( Again ty so much for giving me the info syko2!!!)

    Here is what root rot looks like:
    First pic is of to high temps in the bubbler: Last 2 pics came from chemical burn root rot first pic, moldy rock wool with root rot.

    How much Molasses are you using per gallon?? If you have too much within the medium you could be blocking oxygen from getting to the roots. rotting them out.

    You need more holes. you are letting the plant sit in water inside the container you are using. there should be at least 4 holes in the bottom edge of whatever container you are using for proper drainage. Over-watering is the reason the plant is small and smells.
    good luck

    I brought it to RIU as a thread
    Yes as fuck. stated Flush the medium. use 3 times the amount of soil in your container. so 1 gallon soil = 3 gallons water.





    I gotta get off the laptop now. Insane lightning storm just hit. Good luck
