Need help with root discoloration

Discussion in 'Growing Marijuana Indoors' started by GrowerGemini, Jul 25, 2017.

  1. Grow seems to be going well but I'm seeing some concerning signs in the roots. Most of the roots are white but there are a couple of roots that look brownish and slimey. I'll post pictures of the roots below, little backstory this plant just started re-vegging about 2-3 weeks ago and pulled her from a mother plant deep in flowering. Had some root problems that I seemed to take care of a week or 2 ago but want to hop on this before it becomes a big problem.
    Nute schedule - 5mL Grow/2mL Micro & Bloom/3mL Hydroguard (I refeed/change containers every 10 days or so)

  2. I'm not a DWC guy but it has been my experience that brown and/or slimey roots are caused by water temperatures being too warm.

    Hopefully someone chimes in with more experience - but can you do a water change? Are these bubble buckets?

  3. Hmmm alrighty and yes they are bubble buckets I made myself. I'll more into that.

  5. If your using 3ml of hydrogard you have 1.5 gallons of water in each bucket. Hydrogard is 2 ml a gallon. What's your ppm with all your nutrients?
  6. Haven't gotten a PPM meter yet, I was recommended to use 3mL of hydroguard for 3 gallons of water. Mind you I have 3 gallons of distilled water in a 5 gallon tank.
