Canyon, Everything you see is "new" growth. The original leaves died. It's growing slowly. It was given to me in the pot, so I don't know the state of the roots, but FWIW, there is nothing visible in the holes in the bottom, although I wouldn't expect it at this stage. I'm concerned about the leaves because even the newest leaves have the dead end on them.Red,
That plant does not look like it made roots. Were there any showing when you put it into dirt? Or, did you get it already potted? I don't see any new growth.

Do you have a grow journal set up for this? If so let me know ill come over and take a look at it.
Is this going on bc I took out all nutes for a few days til i added in the light dose you suggested two days ago?
They look almost purple...That AK47 is basically a twig right now. All her leaves are dried up and are crumbling. Is it Time to take her down?
Rifleman is totally right...DWC is very easy for people who understand cannabis. But you are also very correct buffering is key. And that is what cmay is not doing. You can do all that in DWC. If you run a living res the pH takes care of itself. Therefore so does the uptake. Actually the pH will be a function of the PPM in a stable healthy system if it is living or not, just it is way easier to run it continuously living. By following the pH you can keep the PPM just right. But there is a learning curve and it is hard for these guys to do that and learn about growing all at the same time. It is darn near impossible to get a newb to not burn...but you see that in newbs in soil too. It can't be stopped. They over water and over feed.
Anyway there are 2 ways to really run the res correctly. Rifleman and I do it exactly the opposite so between us you can get an answer. But Rifleman is 1 weeker. He dumps his res weekly and runs by the numbers on a very good nutrient line. I just top of my res and run it live like my soil using the exact same tea plus a line of whatever in between tea feedings to maintain the PPM (it doesn't really matter the brand when you know what you are doing).
So if you run High bacteria and fungi rates and keep the sugars up there you can get the PPM concentration really high...but you need to be able to handle that without burning.
I go back and forth becasue you can't beat the easy of doing nothing on an organic grow. DWC is a heck of a lot of work but also a real hoot.
What was said was root rot can lead to bud rot. Once roots are gone plant dies and all unharvested fruit will spoil. Hydro has the ability to kill plants in 5 min. Soil takes longer to die if mistreated. Just determine what happened so you do not repeat same issue. This is hard work and sometimes you get unlucky. But any pull is a good job.Well your right its a learning curve which i knew about. I will be going with soil next time and not hydro because its too many things to control. Doc knows ill be picking his brain when im ready for that. I chopped down the AK and she is drying. I dont know why bud rot was mentioned because it was only root rot. Am I being noob thinking that way? I looked online and bud rot didnt look like my AK so i don't believe it got to that point. Which is another reason i chopped her. I'll see what her outcome is after she dries and cures
85!!!! WINNER WINNER. Seriously man many people can't get past 2 weeks.
So now what do I do?
Im confused what do you mean VI? Are You saying getting to 85 days of flowering or something like that?
It wasnt from dirty water bc i changed it every week.
since i know there are ways to control the bugs that are in the soil sometimes.
my sour is now starting to show some yellow leaves so does that mean she is dying
So now what do I do? Are these on there last leg and ready to be taken down or should i let the go a little longer..but if i was to do that will i be messing them up more then they are now bc ill take her down now
3/22 is the day I made the switch to 12/12 VI.... If people cut her now at this point are they only losing mainly weight or is it weight/potency?
