Okay so she gave me a scare. Stopped growing for a few days and I figured she would die. Then I began to notice she was damping off. I’m 2 for 2 damping off in the Grobo! To my surprise she started growing again and seems to be doing better.
I’ve extended early veg and am keeping an eye on her.
@Aang my personal opinion is the issue I have keeping the reservoir temperature below 70, as well as the cocoa pod size. It seems to be common that the Grobo coco pods sit a little too low, soaking them instead of keeping them damp. My last grow I had to raise the pod mid-grow, and this grow I did the same even after intentionally keeping the pod higher this time around. I think my next grow I might cut an inch or so off before planting. I’ve also been looking into purchasing a water chiller to keep the water temps down.
Another reason is just simply because conditions for growing are also good conditions for mold. I’ve read that fungi growth on the pod is common and not much to worry about.
