Is this Bubba kush looking okay for day 20 from seed and when should I transplant second plant to DWC?

-Vivosun grow tent; (4x2x5)

-Temperature; Fluctuates b/w 75 and 84 degrees F.

-Humidity; b/w 30%-40%

-Lights; 2 Galaxy Hydro 300w LEDs (Currently on 18/6 rotation)

-Carbon Filter; Vivosun 4 inch inline fan with 4 inch filter (Not on 24/7)

-Nutrients: Flora Series by General Hydroponics: Half of recommended amount.

-Planted and sprouted in aerogarden grow anything pods. Transplanted first plant into 5 gallon DWC bucket on day 19.

-Concerns; First two leaves dried up and wrinkled so I removed the wrinkled half of the leaf. Should I remove the whole thing?

-Seems to be very short and bushy

-Growth has severely slowed

-Should roots be submerged in water or hanging above?

-How far away should the lights be?

-When should I transplant the smaller plant which sprouted leaves a week ago?

-Do I need to get CalMag?

Anymore advice about what I'm doing wrong or not doing at all please let me know, I'm a first timer.

  • My guess is that your roots are struggling. Not sure if you have root rot. Can you look at them?  Post of pic if so that is not under the LED

    Lowered water levels and the leaves perked up immediately. 


    • Nice good to hear. Make sure to keep that water temp between 68-72 degrees and add oxygen into the water. You can use the water bubblers and put them under the roots.
