Hello fellow Grobo’ers!

So I am currently on Day 11 of my grow. I have noticed the root seems to be sticking out of the top of the pod more than I’d like. Is this going to be an issue in the long run? Overall she looks pretty healthy to me. The first fill into early veg I added half a cap of CarboLoad and half a cap of Voodoo juice. As well as HyrdoGuard. I guess I just need some reassurance on the whole root situation. These are my readings for the box:

pH- 5.6 EC- 0.8. Temp- 70.5 Water Temp- 64.8. Humidity- 40%

Any tips or knowledge is much appreciated!

Numbers all look fine, temp is a little low but not critical. When roots are seen above the surface it is because they are seeking oxygen most likely. This is usually due to the medium being too dense or too wet. I would raise your cocoa pod up at least a 1/2 inch and introduce a small fan in the Grobo to help circulate air.

Thank you! I’ll give it a try!

Definitely raise pod up and I agree that root should not be showing. Wake might be right on with the pod being too moist. It should be fine however… anxious to see how this plant grows!

So I went ahead a used the ol straw technique to stabilize her and got the additional fans installed to promote air circulation and hopefully dry that pod out a bit. She seems a lot happier. :crossed_fingers:t2:

Just hit Day 28 and Day 5/14 in late veg. I am going to definitely extend it a week at a time until I feel she’s right for transition.
