In my now-resting veg tent, looks like 19 VPD-units (aka red zone of death), and in my flower-converted-to-veg tent, looks like 26-27 (aka deeper into red zone of death) Yeah, I fully acknowledge that my humidity is way too low and slowing down my growth rate, but I'd be fine with slow-but-healthy growth.
It's actually my oldest tent, so hopefully probably not off-gassing. I think I picked this tent up back in '012.
The LED fixture has (at least) 3 different LED types, and the white ones appear significantly dimmer than the blue/red ones at this point. I don't recall if that was always the case, but it's possible that the white LEDs are putting out less light than they used to...
As for sabotage, my ladyfriend seems to like the end results, and I don't think she'd take a relationship-ending risk like that
... so it's never really been clear to me what organic over-feeding is going to look like. But no, my three active soils (Coast of Maine Platinum Blend, Roots Organic Original, and Happy Frog) seem to range from "good amount of nutrients" to "almost no nutrients" -- oh, also pH tested the first two and both were ~6.8, so entirely reasonable.
But I am the transplant master That said, good advice -- I'll probably give this a shot when I start some new beans, but we'll see how my active plants do in their new veg home.
Of the 6 babies, only 2 were started in RapidRooters. Over in my All My Seedings Are Garbage thread, I was convinced that RapidRooters would probably be doing more harm than good in my setup, so I've stopped using them.
That said, the root system on the non-RapidRooter seedlings was not much better than the RapidRooter seedlings. Shrug.
Complete list of symptoms:
- Weak root systems
- Slow growth
- Very narrow internodes
- Small leaves
- Oldest leaves dying back from tips
- New growth (sometimes) bleaching from veins, particularly after watering
We'll see how things play out in their new home. If they continue to do well, then hooray, I can stop banging my head against the wall for a bit... until I start some more seedings, but don't think that'll happen before Halloween.
