Help - Cutting Badly Drooping

I picked up some cuttings from my mate at lunch time today. i have the 4 of them sitting in a heated propagator with the lid off but one of the younger ones is drooping quite badly now. I thought I'd sorted it out a few hours ago by spraying her rockwool cube with some water, she seemed to perk up. But I checked her just now and saw how badly she's dropping and it doesn't look good. I have no idea why. I've never grown cuttings before, only from seed.  The others are doing well. They're under a 65w LED, 24" above the canopy. Temps are now 25C in the grow tent. I have a carbon filter and osciallating fan switched on in there too. I have a window open too for fresh air. I haven't fed them, I was going to do that tonight. I was planning on moving them into 2L Air Rap pots in coco and water them. 

 

Earlier this afternoon and looking good.

And now a few hours later. 

 

Is there anything I can do to save her?  :unsure:

Has she been hardened? in other words, has she been weaned off the propagator?

It can be a shock if your mate had her full time in the dome before he gave it to you.

I would either stick her back into a dome and see if she recovers, or if you dont have a dome, cut the top off a 2L drinks bottle and but the base over it for a few days

@Subutai- cheers mate. :yep:

 

I've taken the big one out of the propagator and left the other 3 in there and put the lid back on. Have closed the vents, is that right?

 

I think it could be temperature extremes. When I picked them up this afternoon it was snowing and pretty cold outside. It took me about 25-30 mins to walk home and I don't know how long my mate had been out and about with them. She didn't look happy then but seem to get better before completely drooping.

 

When I got them in the tent, I started to increase the heat but I may have done that too quickly but it was cold in there - 16C. I've now switched off all the heating and will allow the temps to get down to about 23-24C. They did hit 27C about 30 mins ago. I've dimmed the LED right down to about 25w and increased the speed of the exhaust fan. I also sprayed her with a bit of Advanced Nutrients Revive. 

 

I'll transplant the others tonight but not her.

 

Really hoping she makes it. :lucky:

She's saved! :) It was the temps. She's to some of her leaves are a bit drier but otherwise she's looking so much better, thankfully.
