Okay my first question.
This plant was doing very well in my bathroom under a t 5
For a few reasons I tossed it in the grow tent. 1 day and now it's all droopy.
Must b why my girls are sick.
Other than humidity issues there is more then enough air flow. No experience with helping sick plants.
Obviously it's an environment issue I think.

How often do you feed and with what.

You absolutely have to have a ph meter for times like this.

I think I found a possibility

Little room with big ducting and fans. Low humidity, dehydration. All likely from too much ventilation.
I've drastically reduced fan speeds and they seem to be perking up in just a few hours. I'm looking into a different set up to slow it down more.
Like everything. more is less and less is more. Oops.
Still looking for input though.

So I stopped the intake fan and let it go passive through the 6 inch ducting. I am getting a little negative pressure but I want some to force smells through scrubber anyway. I just don't know how much is too much. It seems gentle right now.

The only thing I never changed cause I assumed more is better was the ventilation. With the extra wind and low humidity they were struggling.

Less than 24 hrs and they are finally perking up. The droop is starting to straighten out nice happy leaves.

Advocate, I forgot to ask, and sorry if you mentioned it: Did you do an extended dark period before switching to 12/12?

I did not. I figured after some reading as long as it gets 12 dark hours in a 24 hour period would be good enough. I know I am trying to mimic nature after all and No plant sees 24 hours without light. If I was really anal I could taper my light dark hours down but figured ultimately it wouldn't matter. The 12/12 is forcing the plant to the next stage of growing into the flowering stage. Have you learned of a benefit to the 24 dark hours. What is trying to be avoided. Most these strains I think are strong enough to handle it. But I'm a huge noob and I can't sleep lol. Thank you for commenting. I love company.
