Second Grow Sherbet

This is my second grow in Grobo hoping for a better yield this time around. Last grow only got popcorn buds :frowning:

Now this new girl looks really nice. Roots are white / plant looks healthy but one problem is it wants to fall over the bottom base is extra skinny and has no strength to it. If it keeps falling over I think it going to break if it hasn’t already. Any thoughts on what I should do? Right now I’m using the drying magnets to keep it from falling over

Here is a couple pictures for your review

Ohh no!! Not looking good my friend!
The coco pod looks wet. Is it soaked?
Is the coco pod touching the water?

Do a forum search for “dampening off”
You should find lots of ideas as to what’s happening / how to mitigate.

My plants have never survived this. They die a long painful death.
Good luck to you.

Put a fan on it.
Squeeze the pod gently with a paper towel to abosorb excess water

Dam you have no idea how sad this makes me :frowning:

Haven’t had any luck with my Grobo yet. I’m going to do some research but sounds like maybe I will just start over again. I guess the question I need to look into is why did it happen and how can I prevent it from happening again

For now I squeezed the extra water from the Coco pod

@ToddYYC @omacoder this is more of an experimental thing, but has anyone tried to dust the affected area with some sort of safe powder or sand substance to absorb extra moisture?

While this may not have anything to do with it, out of curiosity, what are your parameters? (interior air temp, humidity, and water temp?)

Just talking out loud

If I abort this grow could I take a cutting off this plant And start with next grow with a clone?

Or since this plant is sick would I be Better off starting with a fresh seed?

They recover and usually with a vengeance. As the plants been stressed. Keep going bro

Oh I definitely know the feeling!!! Hopefully you’ve caught it soon enough and it will pull through! Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

It doesn’t look like it’s big enough yet to pull a cutting for a clone, but I’ll let a champion answer that question!

Thanks everyone

Yes they are pretty small to make a clone hopefully the plant makes it.

I will keep everyone posted

At this point she is still alive but really hasn’t grown.

At this point I’m terminating the grow. I believe I’m just wasting time at this point

Thanks to everyone for the tips.
