    They in large rockwool cubes? How often you flood?

    Looks like they are drowning to me. Cubes that size, they only need flooding once a day max, prob every day and a half. Either that or lower the flood level so the flood dont reach the rockwool.

    Fresh transplant plus high nutrients would bemy guess. Its very hard to overwater rockwool so I would look at the transplant as the culprit. Flush them bad girls real good with bamanced water then use 1/4 strength nutes until you see them perk back up.

    you say you are using tap water but you haven't mention what your PH levels are.

    i believe without the right PH, Nutes are pointless

    from the pics it looks like a mag lockout this is due to not having the right PH if you dont act fast your plant will turn brown stop growing and die.

    if the hydro shop is to far, go to a chemist and buy a bottle of espon salts


    i hope this helps

    Tough choice OP. 2 contradicting bits of advice.

    Another cause maybe change of light source, judging by the reflection on ya foils (bin them by the way) You are using cfl's. Were their old home using HPS?
    They don't look nute OD'd to me, what is you EC (PPM) and PH??

    I would not put those ladies in to flower yet, unhealthy plants do not produce well. ;-)

    You need to fix your pH and E.C. There is no need for them to be out of the range you desire, this is what hydroponic growing is all about; control.

    Rockwool saturation is a real problem, many growers think you cannot over water rockwoll then are constantly battling mold and fungus issues.

    Large rockwool cubes need flodding only once possibly twice evey 24-48 hours, any more and your gonna be depriving oxygen.

    My ph stays at 5.7 5.8 but my ppm is close to 1800 and they only have been getting feed once a day for the last 4 days I thought maybe under watering but then again they were just moved and changed lights

    The cubes are only 3 inch cubes and I've only been watering once a day for the past for days and they start falling and turning yellow a little bit I just put them under 1000w I believe they were under cfls before

    I never go above 1000ppm in full flower. 1800 is way up there for little plants

    You need to read, and you should have done it before you started growing.

    Okay I flushed and gave the a little less than 1/4 nutes with a very little super thrive I've also started watering only once a day the last few days because I was told they look over watered but I don't know if that was smart or not I am in 3 in rock wool cubes what do you think stay on a every 2 hrs water schedule with light on and once with lithe off or once a day?

    dats the best straight forward advice.

    1800ppm is to much for the to handle

    what i do to get lower ppm on jus water is boil pots of water 2day leave them to cool down and use them 2mo

    its really hard to advise ppl how often to water coz we all live in different climates have different set-ups its really a trial and error kinda fing.
    clay pebbles do not hold any water you say you was watering every 2 hrs so thats 5-6 feeds a day reduce it to 3-4 feeds a day and see how that gets on . once a day with pebbles sounds too risky for me

    Flush them quickly. Set your PH around 5.5, and adjust PPM low for new born.

    Right after switching flowering is the time you get to see if the amount of food you were giving in veg was just right or slightly too much...9/10 times it turns out you were overfeeding in veg...thusly when you switch to flower there is way too much nitrogen in the medium...A lot of times the plants will look great and you'll think everything is going fine and then you switch to flower and you get a lot of yellowing, curling leaves that feel kind of dry to the touch...that is letting you know that there was too much feeding in veg.
