    Best way to recover from Over watering..Advice needed!!!!

    I am growing Auto's in 3/5g cloth pots. I have water build up between my pot and my catch tray. A small amount water was being held. I put small dowel rods across my heavy duty green catch trays in a cross and that gave me a 2 inch air gap to help. I had 3 days of stunted growth and dropping yellow dropping leaves. What is the best way to recover from this? should I wait for my next feed time after my plants dry real good and do a good flush/leech? I do use New millennium nutrients. https://newmilleniumnutrients.com

    Just let them dry right out before adding any more water. Those pots need to be up on some kind of riser all the time - that's how the roots prune themselves, by the air circulation - sides and bottom.

    Let them dry out till they are light light light.

      Set them on the kids bath towels to wick away excess moisture and don't let it happen again.

        The amount of time it takes to dry out will depend on the medium you used and airflow around the bag. My 7gal bags will take about 2-3 days between waterings.
        Let them dry before you do ANYTHING. Don't feed, don't flush...just wait and watch.

            Dang boone I've done that a couple times it's happens but sorry for ya anyway. I'm sure you were counting on these do you have other seeds to get started again? Don't be too bummed out you'll not do it again for a long long time. Really nice looking buds, a good flush trim off them old dead leaves and finish them off.
