Hi all, first time grower here using Coco.

My temp and humidity are always sitting perfect aswell as my PH.

Lights are currently on an 18-6 cycle and I am at week 4 of veg, from clones.

Some of my plants seem to be so thin and lifeless, and a few leaves seem to be curling. What seems to be my issue ?

Hard to tell with the color off the light but might be some form off the nutes or watering issue if the other enviorment factors are “”spot on as you say.

Looks like unhealthy root usually cause by over watering. Mine looked similar when I transplanted from 1 gal to 3 gal. Took a 2 weeks or so to get them healthy. They did fully recover.

Would it be a good idea to let them dry out before there next feed ? And see how they recover. Theyve been in veg for 4 weeks now, should I be looking to flip to flower soon?

Did they start drooping after a transplant or change in watering? If so, letting them go longer between watering could help. I lift the pot to check the weight if the pot is getting light, time to water.

I would get them healthy before flipping to flower. I find the yield is better if they are bigger before flipping to flower.

Your PH is off. What is it going in at, and what is it coming out at? Do you know the water temp you feed at?
When I would grow in coco, I'd drain the runnoff with a wet vac. I'd only use coco at home grow, and summer.

Mine get that look when the watering event is late or is not passing enough volume to generate runoff..

My PH is going in at 5.8, and I let my water reach room temp before adding nutes. And dispose of all run off after they're watered

When they first got transplanted to there bigger pots they started to droop but eventually perked back up. I'll try letting them go longer between feedings, without letting it dry out of course. Is it okay to allow veg stage to run into the 5-6 week ?

Can you measure PH , and ppms coming out. Water at 68 degrees. At 68, water holds 10x's more oxygen than 78. Room temp is way too warm in summer, and depending where you store it, may be too warm now

On a photo period you can veg for as long you like just remember space and distance, after the flip some genetics have one last good stretch during transition and the last thing you want is not being able to hang the light at a safe distance.

From seed, 5-6 weeks is pushing it, depending on stretch, and how much hight you have. You can keep clipping tops about 3 nodes down (where the leaves meet), and practice cloning. If I pop a seed, it's usually an S1 I made, but if not, I'll keep a clone around just incase I get something desirable.
Cloning a couple plants is great experience, and fun.

I got these from clones, tomorrow is 5 weeks since they were put into there bigger pots. They have already been nipped at the tops, should I hang on another week to see if they get better, or flip them straight to flower ?
