Just got four clones from the dispensary yesterday brought them straight home and immediately planted them in happy frog soil two in bigger pots and two in solo cups. watered each one and they are under my sf 1000 light.. one is yellowing with brown spots and had none when I brought them home, will it recover from this am I giving too much light? Also, my other three are incredibly droopy and sagging. I realize they are only a day old just curious is all of this normal. My humidity is pretty low also at 25 to 30.

definitely need some pictures..
depends on the stage at which they are at?
when you got them what were they growing in?
well get your humidity up!! 55-65%..
don’t blast “sick” plants with light, raise it up some..

How close is that light and is it at 100% ? I run my clones under the same lite and start out at about 10-12” and 50% light intensity also humidity up in 60’s , then daily amp things up till they rolling along- get humidy up and back off the light .

I shade them if they are sick until I see them come around.

I’d say your light is too strong I know sf1000 is only 100w but it’s more than needed until your roots are established so it’s only source of energy are the stores in its leaves and then the shock of potting up on top of that doesn’t help …I use a cheap 25w led light of Amazon until they settle in… put the light as high as possible and keep your ph at around the 5.8-6.4 mark and I’m sure they’ll settle down in no time..Hopefully your babies pull through nice and strong 💪🏻💯

I use 2 of these in link for veg in 1 area , and an old 4 bank fluorescent beside it ,cheap lighting and electricity cost and they seem to like it,then I flower with a 600 halide for 2 weeks to keep the stretch down and then I run a 1k hps till they finish.I use promix, GH 3 part and haven't checked PH in years along with rain water till the barrels run dry then tap water.

Seems like they went into transplant shock, next time use CloneX Solution, I use it at 30ML a gallon. Another reason was that the clones could of been fully rooted but haven't been acclimated to air without its incubator. If this is th case they will droop even if fully rooted because they aren't accustomed to it. You can mist them with water as that works or if you have an incubator you can acclimate yourself by gradually adding more "free time" without its incubator daily until reaching 2 straight hours of free time.

Like someone mentioned above you can use baggies to cover the solo cups, that will also help.
