    .4) Is there a consistent fresh air supply? Yes.
    .5) Do you have an exhaust fan and a circulation fan: 1 Carbon Filter Fan/1 Tornado Fan blowing in a 180 degree turn at low setting.
    .6) What are the bulb wattages, kelvin ratings, and schedule? 420W - 20/4.

    Your medium:
    .7) Specific brand and type of soil, (coco, peat based soilless...) and anything you've added to it. (vermiculite, perlite, worm castings...) FFOS.
    .8) Size of container. 3G Pot.
    .9) Did you use peat pucks (or similar) to root clones or germinate seedlings? No.

    Your nutrients and water:
    10) Source of water? (tap, bottled or filtered) What's it's ph befor adjusting? Tap, PH 6.8.
    11) Method of checking water ph. (ph pen, test strips, aquarium test kit...) - Test Kit/Test Strips.
    12) Method of adjusting water ph. (phosphoric acid, white vinegar, hydrated lime, PH Up...) - Haven't had to adjust Ph.
    13) Specific brand and N-P-K ratio for each bottle. List dosages (quantity per gallon) and current feeding schedule. - Not feeding Nutes currently.
    14) How often are you watering between feedings, and how much per watering? Not sure on exact water amount, I water every 30 - 48 hours.

    24) From seeds or clones? Seed.
    25) Is this an autoflower strain? No.

    Currently trying not to panic, and am just trying to figure out a answer. I know the many causes of Wilting can be over-watering, Root Rot, and PH lock-outs, and I am not quite sure what to look for on the matter.

    PH seems to be a steady 6.8ish, as you can see on all the info above

    Plant is about 9 - 10 weeks into VEG, 11" tall, from a bag-seed.

    Went from:


    In less then 3 days.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
  2. Any assistance?
  3. Look like overwatering and LEDs kinda suck. Not a lot of people do it because its just not used or proven right now. If you're just using Fox farm Ocean Forest you need to add some fine dolomite lime, 1/2 tablespoon of epsom salt. Dont water every 30 hours mj needs a LITTLE dry cycle so the roots expand in search of water and get oxygen.
  4. Id go get at least a 150 watt HPS light and put the LEDS around the side.

  5. Blackstar has a very good reputation among the LED community, and has been proven to work quite well. Anyway, I have:

    10 6500k CFL 32W - Around the sides.
    2 90W LED UFO - Above and on the Side.
    1 240W Blackstar Panel - Overtop.

    I refuse to use a HPS, sorry.

    I am going to try the Epsom salts/lime with the next watering, hopefully it wont die overnight, but if does.. I suppose I learned for the next few plants.

    Its all about the learning experience.

    Sorry, only using CFLS and LEDS.

    Thank you for the suggestion though, I will be doing the epsolm salts/lime.
