    Not all hydroponic roots are white as the driven snow.

    I am posting some pictures of my roots so people don't think that any stain on roots is a sign of root rot. For some reason, roots in my reservoir stain at a certain stage, and then they go back to beige. The reservoir smells perfect and the plants are growing like gangbusters.

    I'd be reading up Humics, often its them in your nute that does the discoloring IMO

    good luck

    Early days I did this like the x-files weighing and measuring the root ball gives many insights

    more so if you ever change your nutes even lights

    also cutting downwards looking for knots or obvious compaction points that may impeed growth

    cheers
