    While waiting for the phDown to arrive, i foolishly tried white vinegar.. very bad move...mother of vinegar slime formed all over the roots and the plants took a dive.. they are very wilted and some look burned... one plant is pretty much dried up 'n dead.... all the roots have changed to a brownish color and are coated with slime.. when i try to wash them, they degrade away easily... currently running half strength beastie blooms and h2o2... i'm only 4 weeks away from projected harvest... the phDown should arrive within' a few days.

    what else can i do to save these plants?!?! please advise

  2. Yeah, Vinegar is no good for hydro as you have just found out. Try cleaning the roots with hydrogen peroxide. This may or may not work as root rot is a son-of-a-bitch. Good luck.
  3. thank you smknvtec.. i'll give that a try.
