Anyone got any ideals

Hello all thanks for checking out my question if you do . So I’m in week 6 of sour diesel,strawberry cush ,and 9 lb hammer. My strawberry and sour diesel are ran together in a recirculating system. 9lb hammer is in its own buckets. Strawberfys are just about ready to harvest and the sd is looking sweet, accept for this one plant.ive covered everything I can think of checked and triple checked all my parameters. It’s the only one of 6 plants that all recirculating together that has done this and I don’t know if I should take it out or try to nurse it(although I’m not sure what I would nurse anyways) the roots aren’t like the others they are soft and and almost well like hair under water vs the others that remind me of the back bones of fish tough and almost like plastic and if I turn the flow off it will begin smelling like a sewer. Here’s some pics if anyone has had an experience like this. Oh and I use the dwc technique under 1000 watt lights . Thanks in advance.


Looks done to me you can always look for amber with a jeweler’s loupe but I don’t see a single white pistil left

If and when u switch over to just phd water for few days or whatever. Take a bucket of ro water 5 gallons add a bottle of 3% peroxide to the 5 gallons and soak the roots in the mix while u clean the bucket and fill with phd or ro water. Make sure to rinse off roota good especially if they r going back into a fresh nute batch. The peroxide bath woth. Clean the roots and help for uptake of nutes and then it helps for the new bucket to be cleaner when u put plant in there ull wash off any buildup. Looks good tho i did a h2o2 bath woth every change over.

Sounds like root rot. Depending on how old plant is you may just want to harvest. That said if water temps were below 70F you shouldn’t be getting bacterial growth. Not knowing your maintenance or even your grow environment it’s hard to diagnose an issue.

What color are the roots on the plant in question?
What’s the water temps?
Have you calibrated your PH meter lately?

There is a possibility that the water line to and from pail has root clog or something which can cause issues in a single pail in a system.
Also check the air stone , those plug up as well sometimes and cause low air.
