It’s possible, doesn’t seem too bad at the base of the stem but maybe a hint. Coco pod is completely dry, from top to bottom though!
The tap root looks fck’d. It’s long and the later portion is white, but the tap root at the point where it’s coming out of the Coco pod for about 2 inches appears to be dead.
You pointed me to this strain on another one of my posts! (Thank you!)
School me on flipping… New term for me!
Flipping is switching to the 12/12 schedule. She is a crazy tall plant. You need to keep her away from the lights. Supercropping will be needed.
Germination (Day 22 / 29)
Today during my drain and fill I decided to go back a full week back to germination. There are no other roots besides the tap root and as you can see, the tap root is dying off.
I also manually raised the water level to the highest level to try and get more water to the pod for other roots to grow. I just couldn’t do nothing, I had to try to do something. Not sure if this was the right thing to try.
Also not noted above, I am using hydroguard.
Sorry about this! I would sanitize my unit and start over:
Are you using the coco pods that are from grobo and leaving the water level to adjust itself because it changes at different times for good reason.
Germinate outside the grobo then add seed to pod.
Don’t expose the roots to light.
Don’t use hydroguard until your plant is well established or showing signs of root rot. ( I started in late veg ).
And post often to get help as you go.
Yes - coco pods from Grobo
Yes - everything ran according to recipe up until my latest post on 10/18 when I started scrapping for last minute ideas to save her.
I tried that with my last grow- I also had to terminate her The tap root ended up stuck/edging out of the top and didn’t come out of the bottom of the coco pod.
Think this is what killed the tap root off? I started using hydroguard as soon as the tap root came out.
Bubbler! HAHA! Yes, first thing I checked. I’ve got bubbles!
I opened a ticket on Sat Oct 12th as soon as I saw issue! I haven’t heard back on the ticket though
Not sure what the issue is yet. Once you sanitize and start a new grow let us help you watch for the signs by posting regularly.
How are your seeds being stored? If you haven’t tried keeping a mason jar of rice and stuffing seeds in the package or not and refrigerate.
When ready to germinate take a glass of distilled water and soak seed overnight.
If you see it slightly pop open you can plant or wait another day or two until it fully opens.
I popped mine in the grobo after one night and it took off.
Try to let your grobo do the work until time to defoliate and top.
Remember to squeeze water from coco pod before inserting the seed.
Don’t check your roots too early unless you see the plant struggle.
Try this one without the hydroguard in early stage.
Do you have a water temp monitor? They can be very helpful.
I don’t have a thermometer directly in the water, but I am running a water chiller and it’s set to 64 degrees.
Personally I don’t think its a great idea to run a chiller until needed. Especially during germination it should be off.
65 - 70 f normal
18 - 22 c normal
72 - up root rot
Maybe your temps are too low to germinate. Germination should be on the warmer side instead of the lower.
I run a water chiller to keep the water at the appropriate level, and a heater / humidifer to keep the air temp, RH at the appropriate level. During germination the air temp was about 76 degrees and RH was around 50%.
And at this point, my Grobo is dead.
I tried to unlock the door, the door wouldn’t unlock.
I went to End Grow from the app, and it couldn’t connect to my Grobo.
I attempted to reconnect Grobo to the network, and it wouldn’t reconnect.
I unplugged the device, it shut down appropriately.
I plugged the device back in, and zilch. Machine dead.
Paging Dr @Stephen, we have a situation in need of Asap rocky!
I just responded to your ticket, but didn’t have the ‘dead Grobo’ feedback ticket onboard when I did. Let me read your support ticket from today and respond there for the most updated support I can offer. Hang tight…
To close the loop on this, Grobo is going to replace hardware under warranty thank goodness.
