Sick Plant Strange foliage
Compared to its sister plant ( from regular seeds with exact same conditions) this one has slightly bubbled (not sure how else to describe it)foliage with a metallic sheen to it picture 3 is of sister plant for reference
Also they have been in the dwc for 6 days now but has had problem for last 4
Thank you mate appreciate the help 👌
Also I'm in Australia so we've only just started warming up (29c today)
What temp am I aiming for in the res?
Hey man, sure you can call me snowflake ❄️ hahaha 😂(use to have white hair in highschool) , so I'm using de-chlorinated filtered water from the tap , the ph after giving a new bucket change of nutrients is sitting at 5.8 and 5.9 . Don't currently have an EC meter . Everything was put at half strength other than the microryzel inoculant which is full strength. Light is currently at 600 watt 20inches above canopy.Have a fan an humidifier on. They have been in starter pots with soil since seed , in a propagation tent for 2 weeks as they originally were going outside as was expecting clones but they fell through, then tried to get rid of as much soil from the starter pots as possible to transfer to the Rockwall to put into DWC. How do you cover your hydroton? And how important is humidity in the early stages through vedge?
Thanks so much for your help! Pics below
Hard to see on the pics and it could be the lighting but it looks like there might be some discolouration starting in patches on those leaves. Always really handy for people diagnosing issues if you can provide pics under natural/white light. If possible. Personally I've had and seen this textur/sheen on young plants before and they've just grown out of it. Probably is your pH being a bit low as the others have said though. If the others are okay then this one might just be a little more sensitive.
Hey @Prosnowflake, glad you met the resident Aussie official, lol, he's the best!!
Hey man that other tube light might work better. You'll need to connect a vent hose to one side and run that outside and blow air through the other side with an in-line fan and that will expel the hot air from the light. It doesn't have to be a lot of air just enough to move the heat out, you'll have to play with it some. If you draw air in from outside and run that through it and back outside again, then you won't need a carbon filter for it. Secondly, is that the ballast for the light back there? My HID ballast would get hot enough to cook on, so if the cords are long enough, put that somewhere else if poss.
Now that I can see a few things, it helps a lot. It looks like your on node 6, six set of leaves after the first two round ones, so that means your at least 3 weeks old. So that means it's ok to have your light at full blast but if it stressing them just turn it down slightly. Height sounds good.
The first plant is praying slightly so that's a good sign, it shows light and food are in the ball park. Humidity of up to 65% is good for now through flip or the start of flower, that's tops, if it falls to 55%-60% that cool but try to keep it at or above 55%.
Bubblehok is right again, man that's hard to say! lol But a good EC-PH-Temp meter is the most important item you'll need, you can't run hydro or most cannabis grows without them. Stick with EC and not PPM. Blu-lab may have the best deals, they deffo have a lot of combinations so take your time. You'll get what you pay for and this will be a bit of an investment, so don't go cheap or you'll be cussing and buying twice. They will need to be calibrated from time to time so you'll need solution, I'll try and attach some info for that. A Hygrometer for the RH, you can get those at a local store.
The leaf issues from above don't look that bad and will more than likely past, let's see if you can get the environment and the feed straightened out and go from there, your doing well so far. 👍
