My plant is droopy!
    #85520 - 07/16/08 10:06 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Hi all,

Yesterday evening I went for a run.  As I ran through a big, empty lot full of construction debris and weed-covered mounds, I spotted a young (~3 weeks old) cannabis plant!  Now, this was very special, because I'm used to 100+ degree temps daily, and I've never seen one in the wild.  It must've been the remnant of some tokin' Mexican construction workers or something.  So anyway, I figured that I had better transplant it, let it recover under a few CFL lamps I have, then transplant it again to a nice place I know of that gets regular irrigation.  I dug around it about 6 inches down and ripped off the taproot (I got about 6 inches of it, it must've been deep).  I planted it in a 3 gallon pot with a mixture of Miracle Gro Garden Mix and vermiculite.  Then I overwatered it and secured it to a little pole.  Well, within about an hour it drooped severely.  This morning I began an 18-hour light cycle.  It's about a foot tall and drooping bad. 

So, I know I made some BIG mistakes, and I am soliciting advice, because all I know to do is to continue the light cycle, water conservatively, and wait.  If no advice comes to mind, then is there a way to tell if the plant is beyond repair, i.e. dead?

It could be stressed from being transplanted and loosing some roots. Do you have superthrive?

transplant shock + over watering = droop plant.

Let it dry out for a few days, once the moisture wicks away it'll perk up again.

Poor choice of soil btw, i know it's probably all you had available at the time, but you should try and find something better if not make your own.

W.O.A: This should really be in the Diagnosis Forum.

This thread was moved from Marijuana Cultivation.

Reason:
More appropriate for the Doctor's Diagnosis forum.

any time you transplant they will get droopy for a bit.  should perk right up in no time.

It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes.

Superthrive is good for stress.
