Late vegetation- Day 30

Hello,
I’m wondering if anyone has any good tips to keep the roots of my growth clean. I know the roots should not be immersed in a brownish nutrients composite but this is what’s happening to me (see attached). It’s probably due to the PH nutrients.
Any recommendations?

Thanks!

open a ticket right away. Those roots look very sick maybe even root rot.

do a drain and fill daily to prevent losing your plant while your wait for support

Thx for your quick reply. Are you sure? The plant looks healthy. I think it’s just nutrients from bottles 5

I am sure. White roots equal healhty. That color is closer to root rot. Try growweedeasy.com and look up root rot

I just soaked my roots in a solution of half hydrogen peroxide (typical 3% concentration from drugstore) & half water while I sterilized my unit and it got my roots looking nice & white.

If you aren’t already, add hydroguard to your reservoir to prevent root rot. Once your water is 72°+ you run the risk of getting root rot.

Thank you

How much Hydroguard should you apply to the water?

I did not know about waiting til after nutes dispense to add the hydroguard. It doesn’t really affect pH nor PPM nor EC according to my measurements so I doubt it’s a big deal, but good to know regardless!

Same here, I usually put it in the water before filling.
