Hey guys,

new to the forums here! looking for help.
Strain: GDP
Hydro (DWC) 5 gallon black bucket 2 Air stones.
Nutrients: Advance nutrients sensi grow A&B, B52,Cal/Mag and Voodoo jucie- which i stopped using this week.
cycle: Veg week 3 this friday.
Light: BlackDog LED 600
Temps: 79-84
Humidity: 37-45
Ph: 5.8
PPM 700

Problem: This past Sunday June 23 i woke up to check my lady and she was limp and looked like she isn't getting water or she was over watered. which seemed odd cause of DWC aspect. So i left the lid and noticed a brownish algae or slime on my roots didn't look dark like root rot so i didn't touch her. Monday afternoon i noticed a smell when i go to check ph. The browning got darker so at this point i think its root rot. i read where to use H2o2 to help with root rot. all i had was 3% until my hydro store opened on Tuesday all the browning when a way and back to normal. Tuesday i go to the hydro store get 35% h202 and hydro guard. Changed the rez and added my hydro guard, sensi grow A&B, B52,Cal/Mag and SLF-100. Wednesday i didn't noticed any difference in plant growth or size just adjusted my ph. Thursday June 26th i come home to check ph and noticed the smell right away and all of my roots were brown and clumped together, so i add my 35% h2o2 at 3ml per gallon. I put 2 frozen water bottles a day in the rez to keep my water temps down. I've also taken one of the air stones out. I need help getting my plant back to health and keeping the root rot situation away.
