    Does anybody know what’s wrong with my plants. It was said it Can’t be over or under watered since I’m growing hydroponic. I’ve also tried multiple things to get my temps inside my box down. It was average 90+ degrees. But you can see my new temps on grow meter. I just changed the water an put in nutes a day ago. It could possibly be wind burn since I had a small fan pointed directly at my plants but it has been 3 days since I moved the fan upward.

    4 weeks? Something's very wrong.
    Are you using tap water?

    And over watering is very easy to do in a seedling scenario. The medium gets too wet and your roots get content with the moisture and literally stop growing. That's what it looks like to me. What is in the netpot? Coco?

    I’m starting the 4th week. I switched to distilled water last week.

    I’m using jiffy pellets. I thought I need to keep them moist. But the other two I have are pretty dry.

    You should be using RO water, and that jiffy pellet is literally the soggiest medium you could possibly use.
    Let's see the roots

    Hm... Not very much branching going on. Ro water is ran through multiple filters distilled is reclaimed steam basically
    What is your water temp?

    Pull them out and let the medium dry up. When you put them back make sure the water level is on enough to avoid rewetting it but then roots can dangle in it still.

    Well I cut off my ac unit but if they don’t dry by the time I get home I’ll try that. But I thought the roots shouldnt get hit by light?

    No. Water, which is in the root zone, shouldn't be hit by light because of algae growtgrowth.. But roots themselves are OK. Especially just for long enough to dry out that medium. You'll need to remove them from the sites and let them air dry out for probablg a day or two.

    I will see how they are when I get back and try that.

    You should be able to feel the medium. It should be fairly dry down a ways into it.
