Hey all complete hydro newb here. This is my first grow and I did a supper stupid thing. I started in soil and then transplanted to hydro (clones, to 4 inch pot till well rooted, then into rDWC).

Obviously (form what I know now) the roots died, and started to regrow. Then I had the Root Riot plugs too wet and some of the new roots got rot. I've add hydroguard and they are growing roots back again, but they have been stunted for about 10-12 days.

Since this is my first grow I been considering continuing it, just to keep cutting my teeth perfecting my processes. On the other hand I feel it could be a waste of time and product to continue with my subpar start. I started to cut them for clones, and that's when I noticed they all had decent new rot growth (1 or 2 long root steams with small feeders starting) so, now I'm conflicted.

Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks!

It's hard to tell from this distance, but it looks like they either need a little N or Mg, maybe K. I wouldn't start over, just remedy the deficiencies.

I don't know anything about hydro, so what to do, after figuring out what deficiencies you have, is for someone else to answer.

N or Mg, maybe K

Out of those I would guess Mg, as I do not have a supplement for that yet.

A couple closer ups with roots.

My worst one 1st. (also purple/redish steams)
