  1. Ok, here's my set up ... 4 ice cream clones in a 10 gallon top feed, 400w hps. Using age old bloom 1/2oz per gallon which makes the ph of my distilled water go up. I just put them in 12/12 last week and everything was fine until three days ago... now ONE of the plants is all sad and droopy looking and the root masses for all the plants look brown but they're not slimy and there's no algae in my res so im hoping that's just from my brown nutes. I checked the ph of my run off and it was pretty high, like around 8-9 so I literally just changed the water before this post, this time using some vinegar to get me back to a little below neutral. So now that I have shared the background.... is it possible the high ph was my problem or could it be something else? The bulk of the roots are submerged so i dont think theyre thirsty? but I have an air stone in there so the water stays o2'ed .... I don't want to lose them. Any advice is deeply appreciated. Humidity ranges from low to mid 40s day time and 50-53 at night. Temps between 76 and 81 with lights on... door open during the day with a fan circulating, also have two small closet dehumidifiers
  2. Here's a pic, the stuff to the side in the pot is a clone ready for harvest next weekend... trichs are still clear... anyway ... the decent looking stuff around my hand are from other plants which don't seem to be affected.... I have no idea and I don't want to lose them thanks

  3. I can't remember why but i read using vinegar for ph adjusting is a bad idea
