I might try that nxt transplant maybe and see what happens .i thought that would bugger them up a little...these hygrometers peev me off lol as i dont know which one is exactly right.the one far right is new but i know for a fact there isnt that much humidity in room.the culiv8te i bought yesterday .. with thay cultiv8te one i go by outdoor temp dont i as it shows about 14deg in my room and the indoor setting on like 22 lol when its not that warm .i might take it back if igo by indoor as its not right ..just looked on the box it has 5% inacuracy so thats no good as i cant dial in this room or calibrate the damn inkbird to it...lol..

This is outside my room in shed..see the cultiv8 indoor temp says.i dunno why it says 22 lol.

Maybe yor right but lights were on OD..25.5 .its def not moisture.i weighed the pots.707gs dry and biggest girls was 1173..and that hasnt had water in 3 days..the 4 smaller girls in same pots ones weigh same and they are fine the seedlings pots dry is 310gm dry .they weighed between 550-561 all drooping bar one and that weighs 496gm..what i have done is raised the temp 1deg to 24.5 (fan on at 25.5) before it happened so fans not coming on all the time as humidity drops to 35-37%.i will check the root temps with my blulab soil ph pen when light come on in 4 hrs..

What color are the roots? White?

Just feel the side of the fabric pot with your hand. Does it feel cool? Is she catching a fan or something on her roots? I have done this and plants do not like.

Yeah ..you dont get these things happening outdoors..they are pretty finicky in an controlled enviroment..there was one other thing ive done dropped lights 4 inches but that hasnt affected the 4 younger plants beside it..the strains are different aurora indica is the eldest and one with leaves down ...the other 4 3 are outdoors ive grown and one quik critacal not showing any signs...its def the enviroment .its funny when things happen its between 4am to to lights on the last 8 hrs.

Still no change with the young ones .i think thats about 5 days now lol..ive used a cake skewer around the outside to help them a little.its not wet just moist .and ive backtracked abit and moved the light back up 4" to 35" away from the biggest one and 40" away from seedlings inkbirds set at 1 deg less cuts in at 25 deg c and extraction fan is on for a 1:05 min.rh goes from 68 to 38% in that time and temp reduces to 21.7 and can swing 1deg either way....im not the sharpest knife in the draw but will try and learn what i can..im enjoying the experience and thats what its all about...

I like your thinking.i wish they were all fems and had 7-8 of them i could do that in that little veg room or take that tray out ...i sure hate having different size plants in there but thats all on me..i will do that nxt grow and have plants on there own stands...i will most likey kill all those seedlings as they havnt changed and with the others throw them outside and then order some more fems from seedsman.im waiting for them to get back to me as its been 2 months.seedsmans support are pretty good on responding to my messages .they are getting back to me very shortly.i watered that eldest one 800ml 175ml runoff.fed 400ppm.phd 5.7 out was 6.1 so i guess shes telling me she wants more cal-mag ..

Checked em out lights on still same...hmm.im thinking ive done something else more sinister like maybe using the feed bottle instead of the water one lol..if thats not the case they have damping off.all quick critical.one in a bigger pots growing crapola aswell..these seeds came off a plant at my bros place outdoors didnt grow very big so maybe crap genes as the blue cheese and sunset sherbet turned into monsters right beside it..could b just poor quality.it cant b me..no no no 😆..pic of the aurora indica looking just fine.would it b wise to up the ph to 6.1 nxt feed as i phd to 5.7 runoff was 6.1.i have the feed ready for the other three phd to 6.1 .water temps 11 so ive put it in the room with them and will recheck the ph when its warmer..

6.1 out is not bad, more runoff so it comes out nearer the 5.7 Know what you mean about seed deliveries, I'm looking at re-run of some of my seeds next run, would have loved to have another 4 different strains, but.
Have a look at the outdoor auto I grew in a two gallon bucket, it did just fine.
