Growing Problems  - 
 
Question for you all. I am new to hydroponics, and I am not doing well. One lettuce never sprouted, one died after a couple week, and now this cilantro plant has turned yellow and has fallen over.

I am using Miracle Grow for Tomatoes, along with Epsom salt. I just added some calcium two days ago.

This is an indoor bucket. We keep the temperature at 71 degrees F, and I have two 100 watt CFL bulbs.

Am I missing something obvious? Why does everything's keep dying? I have a cherry tomato plant that is the only plant doing well. Any help or advice is appreciated!

If the seedlings are leggy then it could be problem with light or nutrition concentration. However check if the symptoms are similar to damping off. 
I had similar issue earlier and problem was related to the cocopeat I was using. Sometimes it has fungus which causes "damping off" of the seedlings. I washed my cocopeat with neem oil mixed in the water before starting seeds and it has helped. If neem oil is not available or washing of cocopeat is a problem,  try and use different rooting medium and see if you still have this problem. This may help in isolating the problem.

"A magnitude 2.3 seismic event was recorded in the same area and similar depth in April, suggesting that “the two events share a similar location and mechanism,” it said in an e-mail."

Saw this in an article today. Who said that in an email? The earthquake?

"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart." ~ Steve Jobs

I was thinking that... This is really good advice, until the last sentence.

Steve Jobs is stepping down, and Apple stock goes up? Didn't see that coming...

Oh well. He will be missed.

I love this group! Thank you for all the help and advice.

From my last question, I know I'm not using the best nutrients & I'm using too much... From this picture of my cherry tomatoes, is this root rot, or nutrient burn?

Thanks!

I've been meaning to comment back on this.

For me, I was seriously over feeding my plants. I changed out the water, putting in 1/4 of the Miracle grow and Epsom salt that I had been using. Now my tomato plant is growing like crazy! I also have an eggplant and okra plant growing, and there is no yellowing or brown spots on any of my plants.

I an using roughly one tablespoon of Miracle Grow for Tomatoes, one teaspoon of Epsom salt, and one calcium pill crushed into a powder mixed in 5 gallons of water. My ph is around 6-6.5.

I love PhotoBarn! We have ordered from them multiple times, and love everything we've gotten! I love how rustic, yet modern our pictures look on wood. Great conversation pieces!
