Transplanted to dwc too early but it honestly was looking normal for the first 4 days. Now the leaves curled down. No nutes. LED light. Figured my problem was light too close so I have backed it off and am giving it some darkness tonight. Anyone have any ideas?

What is the seedling in? rockwool? rapid rooter? Take it out if you can, put it in a seedling tray and keep moist until it has more roots. Then put in DWC. It needs roots to survive in there

Yes sir it is in rockwool, crap. I'll see what it looks like in the A.m. and make a move if it still looks this way. Thanks for the help!

How was it put in? Here is what works for me to avoid having to top feed.

Fill the net pot 2-3" with hydroton. Then place the cube ( I use jiffys) then fill the rest. The important part is to make sure the water is about 1" from the bottoms of the net pot so the bubbles from your air stones are splashing the hydroton. Then for safe measure just take a cup of your water and poor over the top each day. They don't explode much until roots hit the water. Your feed ppm should be about 150ppm.

Also keep the humidity about 65-70 for the first couple weeks if you can. It will help keep the plant from being stressed.

I pulled the rockwool and it was mostly submerged under the water. There were plenty of roots branching out so I decided to try what you suggested and have the moisture bubble up to the roots instead of being submerged. I was super surprised to see how many roots were actually there considering my plant hasn't grown at all in 4 days. Thanks for the tips guys. Will post an update soon.

Yeah don't submerge them in the net pots. Let them seek out the water.
