PPM is at 990. Will get some CalMag, per instruction.
pH of water is at 7.17
pH of soil is 7

Last night I did the following to fix problems with green algae, drainage:

Removed half the wet coco, replaced with dry. Put plants back in cup. Poked holes in bottom of cup.

Also, I bought the wrong fan. Ordered oscillating fan.

ok right at soil level ,you notice the discolor from the purp stem to a light color?this is the first sign of damping off,you need to water back away a inch or so away from that stem,make the roots search for the moisture,you notice the coco is really wet,put more hole in you r cups bottom,and a few in the bottom sides wouldnt hurt,coco loves exchange,it is always gonna be wet moist what ever you want to call it,but that exchange of air and nutes is what makes the plant rock on growth,it might seem wet but in reality it is right were a plant in soil should be as far as moisture,stick to your finger but not if you dig what im saying.
best way to put more holes in bottom of your cups is with a nail heated up from a propane torch or a stove that has a flame,just melt a new hole in cup,i say up the side about 1/2 off bottom is you will get ride of more water this way,but be careful anduse pliers to hold the nail.
when you uppot you gonna bury those stem all the way up to the baby leaves also

ok so drop your p down to 6.0 and feed right at 200ppm,add your cal mag first ,glad you transplanted ,i didnt like the looks of the fungus,expect a little stress ,they be fine,but dont foiler spray with the light on,best time is when light go off and a small fan going in room will dry them,not doirect on plants but just a brezze across there face hahahah.

No. Should I be? That's my other question. Lights. I have them set for 18/6 now. Yay or Nay?
perfect for veg,12/12 flower,no just foiler spray them after lights out or before lights on,in veg it wont hurt a bit to disrupt light cycles you can literally grow them in your living room as long as they have more than 12 hours of light,so 30 min to hour after lights or before is perfect,i dont foiler feed unless i see a little calmag issue and then only once a week,so not much at all

Today's pictures: I'll update in a bit with numbers. I think they still look a little stressed, but maybe they will be okay? @oldskol4evr @Seraphine @Buzzer777 @basscaptain

CalMag arrives today.
there you go,looking good,when you feed um just give the little babies about 100 ppm of cal mag,the bigger plants i wouldnt exceed 250 ppm,there is a few of those plants just about ready for feed,when they put on first set of true leaves when i feed um,im weird about that ,first set true leaves is 5 fingers,but if you want to feed them at 3 you could just dont go past the 250ppm,you will have to split your cal mag and nutrients to come up with the total if you dig
