      i agree and too high humidity

    Canuck147 is right. At 17 days old she definitely doesn't need at those nutes. Your burning her up.
    With new plants I don't start feeding for 3 to 4 weeks. When I do it's at 1/4 strength.

        That’s a lot of nutes for a wee baby. You don’t need the bloom nutes (she’s still in veg) You also don’t need to be giving her Rapid start since she is already started and on her way. I don’t know what floralicious and Diamond nectar are, but they also sound like flowering nutes and not veg nutes.
        There are 3 things you must check everyday when growing in hydro:
        1) Water level (How much h2o is she drinking in 24hrs)
        2) pH level (change over 24hrs)
        3) ppm/EC level (How much food is she eating in 24hrs)


          I agree with everyone else to much nutes.

            Your pH is too high for coco coir. You need to get it way under 6.0 right now. 5.5 to 6.0 is your best range and I go to 5.5 since mine were 3 weeks old at New Years and got sick. Seedlings usually react quickly to nute lockout and will recover as fast with new growth healthy if you watch and correct your pH going in. I have never checked my runoff pH but many do just to check another factor in the equation. I just check on my ladies and their environment umpteen times a day. I know many don't have that option....but it is fun!

              Hello Friend,

              Thank you for you advice, how would you recommend and fix her up?

              pH water only for the next 2 weeks under pH 6.0 then start training her. Within a week she will bush like crazy so read up on LST and defoliation

              tokabigone tends to state that the issue is always PH. at 6.2 it is well within the range necessary for coir. having said this too many nutes will make the plant suffer even if the PH is within range
