Plants very drippy afrer repoting to 30litre coco pots

Hello there, I had problems, were plants started becoming very crispy and all while in 5lt pots after potting them from rock-wool cubes. I sorted that out, it appears it was lack of oxygen, because I put them all very close to each other. So when I left some space in between of pots problem was solved. Now I re-potted them to 30 litre fabric pots expecting them to get even better. but Next day they became very drippy, doesn't look good at all. Now about 4 days have passed and still not ok at all. I'm not sure what to do. RH is about 55%, temperature about 26c. I ran two gavitas on 600 at the moment. I have proper intake and outtake. I fed them couple of days in a row, about 150ml of water each time.

PH 5.8, used canna coco A and B, superthrive, and ferro bio roots. Now havent fed them for two days nearly, maybe too much water, have to adapt to new environment and start to spread their roots and then will try to start to feed them again.

Any suggestions guys? this is quite scary to see plants like that. take a look below.

That plant should still be in a small pot mate. Why 30l pots anyway, are you planning to veg this for months and put one plant under one light?

What is it? Auto or Photo, cos you don't wanna be repotting Autos too much as the stress of handling the roots etc slows them down for a good 3-4 days.

You can succesfully grow big Autos from seed in a 20L pot, but 30L is asking a bit too much? Perhaps you should check the EC of your run off, that might tell you if she's taking up anything or if she's locked out.

Maybe a good flush with pH'd water will perk her up?

No, these are not autos. Well I was recommended 30lt pots, after roots populate entire 3lt pot space. When I took them out of 3lt pots, they were all roots holding the medium. So I didnt think it will get stressed out going to these other pots.

No I have 10 plants in total. They all look the same, so  I took the photo of only one. I will use two 1000 gavitas for those 10 girls. And I will veg them for two more weeks. :) That what my initial plan was anyways. I will eye ball it, when I see their size is enough and will take it from there.

30litres seems too big a pot at this stage, it's possibly overwatered.

 

Unless this strain is known for purple stems, id assume it's not absorbing nutrients properly.

Can you give some more info nutrient doses? 

Are you keeping the roots warm?

be a struggle to root they pots out in 2 weeks  I would think, pots of this size id veg for at least 6 weeks but everyone to their own.

150mls is pretty small in a substrate that size it will run through out of reach because their little  roots cant reach so maybe struggling for nutes being  available to the plant, just a suggestion

I will see how they look like after few weeks and decide if they need any more time. :)

didnt pour much water ,just around the edges, about 150mils. and when transfered the plants from 3lt, they were quite wet as of yet.

not getting any better, they were getting better. but then poured 500ml of nutrients and they became very droppy again, and now getting worse. I did it with cold water from the tap, didnt warm it up. this could be the reason. Now Im drying them off completely and will try to really flush them through with 2litre, with canna ab, rhizotonic, superthrive and ph 6.0. we will see what happens. anyone else has any suggestions?

Cold shock I changed my dwc res very first time with cold water plants hit the floor in minutes. They recovered but lost some foliage. I think your best bet is to just raise temps at the rootzone.

Good luck

Sorry mate I can't help you there I grow in dwc so for me I'd just drop a heater in the water. They should recover though mate the water I changed my res with that day was 11°c and I didn't have a heater to fix it.

Myself I'd just bosh a little radiator in there or something set to about 19/20 ° shouldn't be all that bad in a medium coco soil etc I think. for me the roots were in straight cold water no protection and they were standing again after a few hours.
