Clones turning yellow in the center.

Just has to up the EC. I take them right to an EC of 2.0 when they start getting roots, and they don't yellow, rather they explode with more roots and start growing. Once the roots get nice and long I transplant.

how does feeding them nutes with less N than he is now going to fix yellowing? i'm curious.
I can't provide a scientific answer to justify why but i take 50 clones every 2 weeks for literally 5+ years and always have the whitest, thick sphagetti roots ever. Straight tap water / clonex dip gel until roots are 1/8".. then I add 50% flowering nutes - AN sensibloom ph perfect. They blow up and start literally putting on inches in the cloner on days 10-14. So that's over 6000 clones and they all came out just like this.

have you tried the same with sensi grow? not saying you're wrong but less N seems counter-intuitive.
yeah i have of course i started that way at first because it seemed so obvious like thats the way to do it.. but I was having mixed results and using sensiBloom gives me the results i want everytime, i've also read about others going this method too and with awesome results - again i have no idea why technically

is your EC dropping ?

A tiny bit

if you dont' have a co2 controller that shows ppm, don't use it if you are guessing.

Ok


is your pH in check?

Ph is rising slowly. 6.1 right now

are you using anythign for root rot? maxigro is pretty much clear when mixed. any other additives?

I put MaxiGrow powder and 2 or 3 drops of cal-mag because my tap water is very soft.

water temps?

Water is 21°Celsius

looks like a Mg deficiency to me. but that depends on how you answer.

Tell me what you think now

Sorry, i'm just a beginner, but and EC 2.0 is what you see in "Late flowering stage". Some of you guys not to go above 1.2 most of the flowering stage. Now i'm reding to put the cuttings at EC 2.0. hard to understand...

Ok. I don't have any advance nutrients here. I have Maxibloom, or FloraBloom & FloraMicro. Have also a Masterblend mix.

I have to say the same.

They just look hungry and whats causing the browning?

I looked up the maxigrow, says complete. I am not experienced with it, I use the flora 3 part.

Yeah I have been doing this for 30 years and I have one veg feed, it's 2.0 and everything gets it, rooted clones from day one to flip they eat it and the clones explode. But I have heard of all these low feed theories, they never worked for me.

I cant answer on "whats causing the browning?" I did my best to put some air in this roots. May be because my cloner is made of translucent plastic?

Basically, something is causing an issue with nutrient uptake.

It could be one of the following:

1 - Illness - Sick roots limit uptake and the plant can display all sorta nutrient deficiency.

2 - pH - pH could lockout shit lol

3 - PPM - lack of nutrients.

I am leaning towards the first on that list.

I must admit I have never seen anyone employ the root riot cubes in a bubbler either. You sure that aren't damping off inside those saturated sponges?

What was the EC of the water before adding anything?
My water is 0.06 EC

I know that it is strange. It is just because a problem of time between my VEG area and my FLO area.
I wanted to save some time by passing in the cloner for 3 or 4 days.
"Damping off"? Sorry but my english is not going that far, and i dont understand your question.
