Well I have about 15 plants in a 2×4 ebb and flow with lid. Everything is growing great and I was set to start flowering next weekend, and then I checked today..

I have two plants flopped over but the rest looked perky, so I lifted the lid and ALL of the pretty white roots have dried up!!!!! I don’t know how long the timer was off, but it was long enough….

I had them running at 350ppms, so my question is should I drop or maintain the ppms and wait for new root growth? Also I can’t let em get taller than 6" before flowering…..

I’m so pissed, I killed off the mother already, this was going to be my final run with this strain…. I don’t even know if its worth going on or if I should just pop some new beans, pick a mom and start over…. Grrrrr…….. :rant: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:

EDIT: (MODS y’all can move this to the ‘cry’ section if ya want, it’s more of a rant than asking for help really…)
