    I dont know what to do.
    Id like to get a new crop started (4 is the crop) but ..
    Whyd they all die.
    I did what I always do
    Not a varmint.
    Couldnt be nutes
    Water? Nobody ever drowned before
    Should I sterilize environment before re-starting
    Was it something I said?

  2. You ain't fed your babies and they go yellow and die....?
    The obvious is they have NO food, however most if not all seeds have enough food to grow the first 2-3 weeks, without any intervention from the grower, I'd be looking into the Ph of your water runoff
    Although some brands of cococoir do wash the fine shit out of the product either your water or the cococoir has a Ph in the wack?

    Your about to need to start feeding. Seed leaves are dying off. Start at 50 - 25% recommended feeding.

    Vostok, I thought 5.8 run off in coco was ok...
  4. Ph Runoff with Coir?

    Ph runoff 5.9
    ppm runoff down to 495 from 630 after 2 washes
    Thats the ticket
    Dont know what it is
    Dont taste salty
    630 is enough to choke a fuckn whorse
    \tBotanicare - Cocogro Wrapped Fiber Bale 5Kg 
    First time I used it.
    630? Do they pack dead whores in there?
    Not good to sell bad Coco
  6. Ok, I'm hoping that will help out. Watch for nute burn. 630 sounds a bit hit to me but I run floranova
