Young plant leaves not looking good

Discussion in 'Coco Coir' started by mikefulgieri, Jan 26, 2020.

  1. I planted the sprouted seed 5 days ago and it’s been getting worse every day so I decided to post a photo. I started giving it low levels of food two days ago since I have a bigger plant which I’m feeding with the same nutes. The water is ph fine and I checked most of the common error causes. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

  2. Are you growing in coco?
    Why didn't you fill the containers with soil?
  3. They were mostly full when i first put the coco in but after watering a few times its compacted.
  4. That's a hell of a lot of compacting......they're not even half full.
    Your seedling looks like the membrane from inside the seed shell was attached to the cotyledons......probably the reason for the yellowing.
  5. I put it in and didn't pack it at all when i first filled it so thats probably why. And also do you think the plant will be fine?
  6. Was your coco buffered?
    Personally I would transplant the bigger one to another pot with more coco in it.
  7. Yeah it was buffered and also how long should i wait until i transplant the smaller one?
  8. It depends on the size......I usually transplant at 2 weeks from sprout.

  11. Ok I think the main issue is that you are overwatering the seedling . I usually do not water for the first 4 days after the seed pops up. I wait until the coco changes color before watering . Give the roots a chance to reach out and search for water . And the first pics can be overwatering or just a little mutation
