Brown Stem Rot problem

I have a cloner reservoir and my plants from seed, stems turned brown near the bottom of the stalk.

I use DWC
Flora Series
PPM 1100
PH 5.8

Roots white
Leaves are green and great.

What caused this? How do you stop this? I lost 3 plants so far. Just choked them out… Help!

Water is to close to the surface… trunk rott… as plants get older you need to increase the air gap between net basket and water level… :wink:

You can see how wet the little dirt puck is… suck the life right out of your plants …
You should drop your water level by 1 inch every 2 weeks if possible… once your roots hit the water line…depending on your situation… but if you do this you will never have this problem again…


Thanks buddy


Thanks. Adjustments made.
