I dunno I don't think so man, organic nutes do discolor roots sometimes. I know my older roots are not pure white. When I had root rot it was much more brown, and thicker than that, and it smelt. You can smell it in the whole room walking in. I would say that is not root rot.

Yeah I've seen on many other post that if there roots are rotting it also turns the water a dirty brownish color too. Let's hope it isn't root rot. Ill check on it in another day or so

Would a Benificial Bacteria product work well with Cannazym? Would anyone know?

I've finally found a place locally that makes bennies

Yes. Beneficial Bacteria is awesome, Cannazyme is for breaking down dead organic matter and turn it to food for your bacteria and plant I believe.

They honestly look fine to me. My leaves constantly move. I wish I can show you a video. In the AM they are perked up till it gets closer to the time the lights go out, then they sag and it looks like the plant goes to sleep. It starts waking up and perking up before the lights come on and it repeats. I have a timeplase videos of it. First month of veg and first month of flower. I am currently not taking a time-lapse for the latter part. I got lazy.

Here is my first grow, that was a miserable grow but you see what i am talking about. I am uploading the first month of flower in my current grow. It will take a while but ill post it.

Notice how curled my leaves are at some points, that is root rot. This plant fought root rot the whole grow, it was miserable.

Nothing. Chiller to keep water cool, and beneficial microbes. Last time I started with no chiller and water temp cause rot. I also had bad circulation of water from pot to bucket because the pre-made holes were few and tiny.

I plumbed a res and chiller but it didn't help because it was already in there. It was in the rockwool and the hydroton. It always came back. I tried chlorine and h202, it would go for a while and come back.

My next grow I improved all that and made sure the plant established itself well before I started nailing it with food.

Its not perfect mind you but I'm still learning too.

Plant is suffering from root rot. Wiltered and leaves looking stale and becoming lifeless. Paper like.

There are 2 brown spots around the top of the roots and the bottom are fairly white.

I still don't think its root rot. My roots were shit brown. It looked like a small layer of shit goo was coating the roots and I mean coating a clump of roots together and it smiled awful. It looked nothing like your roots. I'm sure I have pics somewhere hold on.
