Oh no Will do, thanks for the advice. Really hope I don’t have to ship this thing.
Well, they will be able to tell if the light spectrum is off or something. Your plant shows signs of “reaching” for the light, which means there is potentially an error in the spectrum or it’s slightly burnt out.
You will be able to get a replacement LED more than likely, no idea if they would make you pay for it or not… possibly… but you’d also have to replace it yourself if there is an issue.
Either light or genetics but i think your right the stretch is gangly
Welcome to AG Miles! No worries, the team will have you sorted in no time!! Grobo customer service is top notch!
Opened a support ticket; turns out my LEDs weren’t fully running, but power cycling seems to have solved it. Putting this grow out of its misery, got sent a free grow kit and a couple pods though
Excited for round 2!
Awesome! Sorry about that but I’m really relieved it was an easy fix for you ! Good luck you’ll be good now !
On day 2 of my new grow – nothing sprouted yet, but I’ve noticed that my Grobo is running a lot louder than last time. Seems like the water is constantly running/being filtered or something… is this normal for the first few days? Last time it was pretty quiet when lights were on.
That’s awesome on the Grobo team!
How does it sound like? It is a buzz? if it is, then it could just be a loose air pump wire tapping against the wall of the grobo (can be fixed with some tape)
There’s a constant sort of hum, might just be the air pump itself? I don’t remember being able to hear it as much before. There was some buzzing but I opened it up and moved some stuff around, seems to have improved.
Still kinda sounds like an old fridge.
It must be the air pump vibrating and causing one of the wires to tap against the wall of the grobo.
If you can squeeze your fingers in there, some electric tape will do the job.
New grow, another Sour Diesel from HSO – day 5, she’s alive!
Looking much healthier than before, so it seems like my LEDs are working
Might be paranoid, but I just checked on the root and it’s wrapping around the outside of the pod… should I be worried? The other one dropped straight out the bottom.
My root is doing the same thing… our ladies are about the same age!
Perfectly fine, doesn’t matter how the first root makes its way down there, plant is trying the quickest and most efficient “route” for the “root” Eventually there will be many many roots all over the place
Congrats on your new !!! You too @pyromancy!

I wouldn’t be worried about it, it’s pretty common.
Most agree that it is the initial shock of nutrients introduced, which more than likely had started on your 2nd drain and fill on the start of Day 15 I would imagine… did they show up before or after that drain and fill?
Also, orangish spots can also be caused by a lack of Cal/Mag which is your #5 bottle in the Grobo. Do you know if it had dispensed properly in your last drain and fill? It’s good advice to mark the levels of the bottles to make sure the nutrients dispense and an added bonus of being able to see the amount per stages of the grow/how much it actually dispenses.
Watching them dispense is another option, but marking still is a good idea because you never know if something will come up that you need to walk away from the Grobo while waiting for the nutrients; this actually happened to me personally and I’m glad I marked them, had company stop over for a quick minute so I had to answer the door while the Grobo nutes were about to dispense.
The biggest takeaway is that your NEW growth looks good, lower leaves more than likely will eventually shrivel and die as your plant progresses or you will remove them anyway for defoliation purposes, so as long as the new stuff isn’t affected you’re probably fine.
Cal/Mag deficiency examples:
^ Thus is why bottle #5 might be of concern. Some plants like more than others, so it may not be quite enough for it but it doesn’t seem too extreme
