wilted Basil

by Robert Berry
(Crosby Texas)

i have recently started an NFT system that i have Basil, cilantro, oregano and parsley growing in. last night while checking on things the basil was tall and healthy looking, this morning when i went out to check on things before going to work i noticed my Basil plants had drooped over as if they where sleeping. the plants are still young and i am not running full nutrient yet and my PH is 5.9. the only thing i noticed was that the ambient temperature has risen a little (still in the low 60s) with the humidity as well. my be nothing to wory about but this is the first major change i have seen with the plants

Sometimes the plants droop because they have not gotten enough moisture. Double check your system. Is it delivering plenty of nutes to the roots? Any chance the electric went off for a while? That can be devastating with NFT, one of the risks with that system. Hope this helps, and good luck!

Thanks for your reply, all is well with my plants now. we had a weather change here that i feel was the main issue. we went from the 50s with low humility to the low 70s with high humility.
