I just recently joined the forum. I’d be curious about your opinion of my current grow. I’m growing GrapeGod. It’s my first grow in the Grobo. Things were progressing nicely for the first couple of weeks but it seems like growing has slowed/stalled now. I’m on Day 18 and did my drain/fill a few days ago. I added 5g of Recharge on this last fill as well because of all the great feedback on Recharge. As everyone already knows, this particular fill doesn’t go up to the top sensor. I only have 1 significant root that reaches the water so I added a little water so that the very bottom of the pod is just barely touching the water (kind of sitting in the bubbles). I know this stage is supposed to prevent damping so hopefully keeping the very end of the pod in the bubbles/water is OK. Seems like leaves don’t look as healthy as they did previously…almost looks like they’re curling a bit. More details on my environment are below, along with pics. I welcome any thoughts/opinions. I may be being overly cautious but I’m somewhat new to this.
-using only distilled water
-bottles seem to be dispensing gradually
-air stone is working fine
-bottom fan is on/working
-temp inside unit varies between 70-75
-humidity inside between 40%-50%
-grobo is in basement and I’d estimate water temp is probably 65-70 degrees
-single taproot only, though, sides of pod look like there are roots ready to expand
-plant is looking a bit ragged, almost dried-out looking but maybe I’m just being too picky, at this stage
-as I said, growth seems to have slowed
-I’m posting the latest root pic, the end of the 2nd week growth and then today’s photos (day18) so you can get an idea of the growth
Would welcome any thoughts/advice on whether any intervention is needed or whether I should just leave it alone?
