I use botanicare hydro organic nutes the 3part nute and high phosphorus jamacain bat gauno. I always ph test my water before
adding ph down and after adding nutes. I make gauno tea when I
add it. But it seems that an hour after adding the roots turn brown.
But those whose non-organic are always talking about white roots.
My babies dont look like they have had any ill effects but still I worry. So are brown roots normal or are my nutes to strong
Also I added some superthrive and clean ph'd water.

You are fine as long as the roots are not slimey.When they are slimey brown {A darker slimey brown}you have root rot.But you dont have any of that.You said you give her some gauno tea,that's the light brown color.I use GH 3-part and my roots have a light browneash color and they are fine.The last 3 in dwc did the same thing.You are fine. PEACE

plus the longer you let it set mixed ie the water and guano the better it works i useuly let mine sit for 2 days at that point when you shake it the guanos fall apart and is just watered into the soil. but i've noticed if i just let it sit for a few hours to a day it don't desovle or break up when shaked like it does when leting it soak for 48 hours
