Like the title says my emersed hc is turning brown in spots. I dont know if this is a root fungus or what because some of the plants are brown at the base and sproting green leaves which turn yellow soon after. I have my lighting on for 12hrs and I keep it covered and mist daily. I will be flooding soon and adding co2 and ferts but I wanted to see if anyone knew why this was happening.
I've followed some TPT members on my dry start with hc. Been a week so far. And slowly getting there. I've read that you shouldn't pool you're soil, but just enough for it to be moist.
I spray once a day with excel mixed(less then half cap mixed in) it helps to keep away algae an mold. And I leave my light on 9 hrs a day on a timer.
Trust me I have looked into everything plenty. I have been doing this for 2 months haha and I have great results. And I am not so sure you want to be adding ferts to your spray many people suggest not to because you can cause a build up and hurt your plants. I also dont pool the soil I keep the water at the level of my soil where its supposed to be.
