Hey guys....as you can see from the pic, the stem of this guy/girl is purple and there is some light brown spotting on the leaves. Is this normal for a hydro setup when you start out? Im currently running a 1on/2 off watering cycle and using flora 3 part at a VERY diluted rate. When i germinated, they germinated much faster than i expected and they kind of got ahead of me so i had to plant using perilite(as you can see). do you guys think this is some sort of nutrient deficiency or what? these plants are bubblicious in their 5th full day since planting

Yea, it does need wind. fans are just dang hard to come by in stores this time of year...ive searched all the "big box stores" and nothing. The tap water at my house is around 7.5 and it is very hard water. so im kinda scared to use tap.....ive just been using distilled water and figured i had to put nutes in it otherwise the plant wouldnt get any at all. The light is 2 40w flouro tubes about 4" away running 24/0.. you guys think i should flush the res and replace it with what kind of water? just bottled water?
Peace

Try and get some kind of fan, anything, cheap little computer fan will work. Put it close enough that the little girl shakes.

Bottled or whatever, try and ph it - 5.5 to 6.5, less ppm the better (no hard water). No Nutes for first 3 weeks is what most say, for most strains.

Your lights could actually be even closer, mine are 1".

Hope this helps, Good Luck.

Bagseed in DIRT on day 7. See where you should be? Flush and fill with ph water, 5.5 to 6.5 max, I think that 5.8 is ideal in hydro. Lower ppm the better, and well...you already know what else you need.

mcshuttyshut is right it is hard to find fans up north at present time . walmart and kmart sell out there fans at discount prices and bring the heaters in that section . but however take you a kite stick or somen similar and stick in your soil and tie it up loosly to keep it from drooping until it establishes big enough roots to support it .and no ferts till atleast 2 weeks .
