An observation, some nutes seem to stain roots, LK, Flora Nova, ect. Ive MANY times thought I had root rot, but in reality it was just the nutes I use. If I flush for a few days the color goes away (and yet the plants health goes to shit). When you mix up a full (or even half) strength batch of flora nova, the water gets all dark and murky. Plants love it though.
Yup.....thrive alive B1 turns your roots brown overnight. Scared the daylights outta me the first time I used it....now I just use the basic stuff and have good luck....of course, my roots stay white without those supplements like this:
Note the big stem coming out the side of the stalk. These plants fall over on their side, so the roots start growing downward. Looks kinda neat.

I am convinced that coco is where its at for soiless. The roots grow into EVERY single square inch of the medium (as those pics display), and the plants don't seem to display the usual signs of rootbound they get in dirt.
great job Hella Fella, you too Stoned2Death. what are your plan when she gets older? i ended up scroggin mine sideways cause they kept fallin over wont do that again, now i use a netcup and it seems to be fine.
My plan is string! I let them fall over for a bit to get the side shoots coming upward. Then I'll tie the main stalk up and train the rest. Works out good. I should have about 30+ nice sized colas when this run ends.
