I’m inclined to think you’ve got light coming in somewhere.

Agreed with the light thing. Most likely coming through your lid. Do you have pics of your setup without the plant pulled to show roots?

The nutrient solution looks dark in one of those pics?? Curious on the light coming in as well, are you adding anything to inculcate the roots like Hydroguard or Sourhern Ag :love_you_gesture:
