    It most certainly was off gassing. Got a refund on the tent from the manufacturer, used soil directly from the tent of death, as I've come to call it. No till style. Pulled a dead plant from the tent. Placed a healthy clone of the same variety in the container and placed in my wood built room, in which I've never had issues. The plant took off with only a few AACT through bloom and produced very well.

    That's why off gassing is so damn hard to identify. I never did get the pics of the bubba clones that grew inoppositerooms... Maybe I'll try to do that.

    You did read my post with all that info right?

              When I talked with them they said of nearly a million sold only 5 complaints like mine. In limited in my response asI'm in a phon... But iI will dig through some e mails and get that information so I I do not give bad info....

              I think you are more than likely "safe" but I would always go lumber after my experience....

                The component (chemical) responsible is "phthalate"... I just read my emails to and from the distributer and manufacturer... There is valid information so after I edit some personal info out ill post the pertaining information.

                    so i believe i have run into an off-gassing situation.
                    i have been a grower for 10 years
                    i have been trying to grow in a tent for the last year with hardly any luck. There's been something haunting me in the tent this unknown presence. i had tried everything to avail.(changing soil,strain,Nuts,clone,seed,li ghting,air flow... and i kept going over the list again and again and again. At this point I freak out and build a grow box out of wood. I grow a set in the grow box and there doin awesome. I start to feel like i have my green thumb back. Its been a few weeks now and the plants start to get crowded so i move them into my tent. The next day first thing in the morning i go to check on them half of them are wilting. so i go through my check list. they dont need water. so i ask my self what did i do.... i couldnt really think of anything so i waited a day. now they all look droopy for no reason. I think to myself again what did i do?!?! I moved them into the tent. so in a freakout sort of state i (riped down the tent) like Flash. one day goes by they all look better again i dont even think it was 24 hours.
                    the tent i used was AGROMAX XL what do u suggest i do?

                      If anyone wants to see some pics of some plants that suffer offgassing problems from cheap black flexi tubing, here are some threads.

                      Looks like a P or Mg def at first, but sometimes you will get grey blotching from BPA/Phthalates leaching into the nute solution running thru the tubing which is a dead give away its offgassing poisoning.

                      Peace, happy growing to all.

                        I have a question for you folks, It appears this is the best place for it... I have been studying hydro for 3 years and have lived in NorCal (lets just say not as long). Where Im from we dont seem to give a shit(?) idk but these folks care about life and I love it. I have been taking these folks warnings tword health issues fairly seriously and one of them is BPA.. The thought of the 'plastic in the microwave causes cancer' stuff + BPA warnings + my infatuation with hydroponics = don't you guys think the plastic totes that are being advertised to use (by other growers at least) such as these (not brand specific or style restrictive in my question, just examples) are leaching out, to some negative degree, into our water and into the plant?? Im not sure its something anyone wants to bring up this far into the game, seeing as names like HygroHybrid, VaderOG, MediGrower, and many other folks on youtube alone have advertised using these products for YEARS, But I really care and I would like to clear my conscience of these woes. I wouldnt mind replacing the containers with some 50 gal water safe plastic drums and cutting them down to size, but I dont want to go that far if the Depot HDX totes are safe.

                        Next is PVC pipe, these folks use it to plumb from bucket to bucket, successfully at that. HygroHybrid is a (fairly) flawless grower so his grows can attest to not dying from off-gassing PVC, he goes a year or longer before he changes his pipes and he has plenty of friends that he's set up with the same setup and he has yet to say 'eh man, I think this PVS is off-gassing in my chit.'. COmments? Thank you folks My FIRST Under Current RDWC session/ first journal coming soon!!

                          Do you think offgassing could cause this ?

                            It could cause that, but I would ASAP make sure you don't have Root Aphids. Place 1" thick slices of raw potato on surface of the medium. Check undersides daily for a week to see if you can see RA's. Good luck. -granger

                              If the tops of your plants are turning white, you are short on iron.
                              Check your pH...
                              Then...
