Hi @zipsmysticmom :)
There is alot of contradictory information regarding coir online most of it quite confusing. Water everyday don't water everyday, water 3 times a day :confused:
She needs to dry out as soon as possible as the roots look like they're struggling ;)
Can you tell me if you've added anything, how frequently you watered, if you ph your water things like that. The more info the better assistance I can give you :)
I would guess the problem is saturation at the root zone inhibiting uptake of oxygen and also a possible ph imbalance.
If you are a newish grower I would recommend a good peat based potting compost mixed with 20% perlite and 10% vermiculite as a standard base mix.
Hopefully we can turn this around for you :)

Tips on moving her would be to let the medium dry a little first if possible, if not possible roll it out onto some newspaper try not to damage the roots and repot it into some fresh compost mix with vermiculite and perlite :)
The roots, despite the plants tiny appearance will go down quite deep so handle with care and you should be good ;)
If you really want to treat her get some Mycorrhizal fungi and add some to the hole you plant her in in the new pot/medium :)

Hey @zipsmysticmom :)
Which tester did you go for? Got a link? They're so useful ;)
I'd let her dry out a little bit more before you add water but that doesn't sound far off.
PH is not ideal, really it shoud be around 6.5 in a soil grow but at the moment I wouldn't panic about this, the main thing is for her to recover and the roots to grow :)
What's the ph of your water? Do you use tap or rain?
When you next water test ph of your input water and then test the ph of the runoff and let us know ;)

I forgot to mention how much I like the Northern Lights, it's such a great hybrid and for me the high is near perfect :D
Potent but still functional and clear, and if you smoke enough :confused:
I've tried the Oasis from DP which is NL#2 and have some NL seeds sent to me by fellow growers but alas these are now over 10 years old, doesn't time fly, so they may no longer be viable. They've been in the seed fridge though so there is a small hope :cool:
Whose NL are you running, I forgot to ask :)
