Bottom leaves curled at the ends?!?

Ends of the big leaves on bottom have a curl to them is this normal? Does this plant look ok?!? I am on day 5 of early vegetation

Yes no problems

Your coco pod looks a little over saturated, can you confirm that it is not touching the water in the reservoir? It should be hanging slightly above.

As far as I can tell it is not in the water there are a lot of roots coming out of it

What type of water are you using? Have your ph up or down and nutrients dispensed at all?

Distilled h20 nutrients being used. Adding hydroguard on refills. Water temp staying around 67-68degrees

Sounds like all systems go. Perhaps just genetics. You’re in good shape.

Mine looked exactly like this in the beginning. Have had that on a previous grow as well, seems normal and didn’t affect anything for me

Update

All of my numbers are good nutrients are being used and h20 is bubbling I have new growth and it’s getting bigger but those bottom leaves that had the curl now have spots on them. Good bad thoughts!?’

What type of water are you using (tap, RO, distilled) and do you have any idea what the water temperature is? Those are the first things I’d check. If it’s tap water you might want to let it gas off longer or filter it, if it’s distilled/RO then it’s probably temperature-related.

Distilled water and h20 temps 68ish

Temp has never gone above 70

If it’s not that, it might be the nutrient concentration/composition is incorrect or too high/low; somebody else might recognize those markings and be able to tell exactly which is being OD’d on or is too low.

To rectify that you can just drain/fill again to clean up the water and re-dose nutrients; on new units during the first runs of the pumps sometimes it pulls air instead of fluid and doesn’t actually get enough of the nutrients into the water. Given temps are fine this would be my next guess as to what the problem might be.

The very last thing to check on is perhaps it’s just reading the wrong pH value, is the probe clean+calibrated? Do you have a calibration kit or have you already used one prior to the grow? If it’s the first grow in a new unit this is unlikely to be the issue (but not to be ruled out entirely).

Raising RH can help through struggles like that as well. What’s that reading looking like?

New grobo first grow h20 temp 68.7 rh 40% (is that to low) the spots are increasing on bottom leaves but uppers are still growing and looking good. I will try to do a drain fill later today to see if that helps
