As the title of the post says. I’m having some trouble with root oxygen (at least that’s my assumption due to dark green soggy-looking leaves). The plant is growing quite well, but for some reason new leaves have been drooping lately. I’ve tried altering my watering schedule a few times now, but unfortunately I was unable to find a 15-minute interval timer so I’m stuck with 30-minute. So far I have tried 30 min on/off, 30 min every hour, hour and a half, two hours, four hours. [I have not been watering at night.] None of these seem to make a difference. Leaves droop regardless. The pH has been a very stable 6, and the ppm has ranged between 760 and 980 which from what I’ve read is well within the range that sugar snap peas enjoy. I’m at a loss here, and any help would be appreciated.
My system is an airlift-siphon. After several hours of playing around with the parts I had it’s the only way I could get a functional lift. I’m currently growing sugar snap peas in the top and bottom pots, the middle one snapped at the base and didn’t recover. As of right now (now being three weeks after transplant) the top plant is doing very well, while the bottom one seems to be struggling. Although it has a great deal of new growth and seems to be spreading quickly… the soggy leaves have me very concerned. The top plant has no evidence of this problem, and it seems to be confined to the bottom plant. I’ve been trimming back any leaves that stay droopy for a long period, but I’d really like to stop them from happening at all. Any ideas?
