Yeah I was fighting that crap the whole grow man, it even clogged the water from draining out of the pot believe it or not. I was forced to harvest.Dam bro that looks like some chow mein drenched in soya sauce lol. Fuck I dont know man I'm gonna expect the worse. Im just waiting for this bacteria to arrive then im gona change out the res.
Those roots look pretty gnarly
Honestly the start takes time sometimes, I started my current grow from clones and it took for ever to grow. Like you i was wondering what the hell? but i could totally see roots growing, just not the plant, then it decided it had enough roots, and started to grow. I am uploading that second video for you, to show you how slow and long it took for my plant to grow, before it went mad.
