the worst of them looks like shes about done, don't give up yet. If your doing a hydro grow we would target are questions at people like Stoney Bud and Kade who are elite. Good luck Oyster.

If your over 7 then you need to start with that, hydro needs 5.6 - 6.2. I shoot for 5.9.

In that rockwool you dont need to water to much and you did not say how much nutes your giving them, I would back off on nutes as they are small and dont need much at this stage.

There is no set schedule to use to water, it is very easy to over water.
You need to let them dry out a little this allows O2 to get to the roots.
Rockwool retains water better then most mediums so you need to let it dry out some.

As I said your PH is the problem you cant ignore it and you have to fix it before you do anything else.

At the size of the plants in your pics they should be taking 1/2 dosage of nutes... after a week of growth... full dosage should be able to be administered.
Your tap water should be good as long as it isn't full of chlorine or bromine... but letting the water sit open for a day will allow enough to evaporate outta the water.
Ph is on the logorithm scale... a ph of 7 is WAAAAAAAY different then a ph of 6... you absolutely need to know the ph.. and put it to the appropriate level... hydro is extremely easy, anyone and their dog can do it.... but you cannot without the right equipment.

kade dont mean to ride on your post but after 1 week plants should be no more then 1/4.

BUt i agree with Kade in 100% you need ph and tds meter and i mean the good one digital wit-out that you got 50/50 to grow succesfoly
try keep ph lower then 6.0 my stay at 5.7 i never let it gow above 5.9

3 days is hardly an established plant.

That would be called a seedling... typically an established plant would have a couple nodes.

Do u grow much at all?? Ur quite willing to contradict when it is a tried and true method... from a well knowledged person on the forum...and one that has shown documentation to back up their claim as well.
