Roots need water, but if they are get too much water without enough oxygen they are much more susceptible to root rot. Healthy roots are white to cream-colored while roots affected by root rot are brownish and actually may even smell like mildew or rotting. Plants affected by root rot will spontaneously start losing their leaves, leaves become yellow or bronze. The very first sign of root rot in cannabis (besides brown roots) is usually wilting or drooping. The wilting will soon be followed by other symptoms to the leaves, especially burning, brown spots, nutrient deficiencies, spotting, and other unusual leaf symptoms. A recovering plant will be able to make new growth, but it's old infected roots will likely never recover. Root rot mostly affects hydroponic systems, but can also result from over watering your plants in soil or other medium.
Now that you know what root rot looks like, it's time for the cannabis root rot solution!
If you don't fix the environmental causes of root rot, then it will just keep coming back no matter what you do. Some people like to add beneficial bacteria to their water to help prevent and treat root-related plant diseases and help make nutrients available to the plant.
As I mentioned, it is incredibly beneficial to try to get as much oxygen as possible dissolved in your water. In a hydroponic system, make sure that any dead roots, dead leaves or other types of plant debris doesn't get into the reservoir because they will provide a breeding ground for bad bacteria as they start rotting.
Don't let any light get to your roots or reservoir water, as it provides heat and light which will promote the growth of bacteria. You will need to keep your grow area as clean as possible at all times to stop bacteria before it starts. All H2O2 does is cause bubbling near the dead brown roots (or any organic matter), which is why I think people believe it's helping.
H2O2 kills most of the bacteria in the reservoir, including any good bacteria, and does absolutely nothing to address the underlying problem.
Hydroguard (and their old supplement Aquashield) are also much cheaper than most other similar root treatments.
One important thing to note is that after you treat the cause of root rot, the old brown roots will likely never recover.
Take a look at what happens with the roots from using a supplment like Hydroguard or Aquashield. Notice the new white roots growing out of the old brown dead ones within just a day or two of receiving Aquashield in the reservoir.
Notice that you can barely see any signs of the old brown, and all the new roots generally appear white and healthy.


In addition to treating root rot, I like to use Hydroguard or Aquashield as a preventative.
Since I first started using Aquashield in DWC, bubbleponics, and other hydroponics, it has successfully preventing me from getting root rot as long as I keep using it.
Sometimes the plant will not wilt, or will recover from wilting while still showing other signs of root rot. If you notice these symptoms in your cannabis plant, then it can't hurt to try all the suggestions for stopping root rot. Instead, you know that recovery is happening when new white roots start growing from the old brown ones. Therefore it's a good idea to buy a BIG air pump and big air stones for your hydroponic system.
While adding hydrogen peroxide to your water will kill all bacteria including root rot, it is only effective in your system for a day or since the H2O2 is quickly converted to oxygen and water.
Although H2O2 does kill bad bacteria, it leaves enough of it there to repopulate your reservoir. Eventually, as the root ball gets bigger, you will no longer be able to see the old brown roots.
By this point, the plant has stopped showing any new symptoms and appears to be growing normally.
The plants on top are lush, healthy, and fast-growing, though the old burnt leaves never recovered. It's also important to note that affected roots will likely never recover, just like how discolored leaves on the plant will never recover. The more bubbles and surface agitation, the better, as this dissolves more oxygen into the water. Regularly changing your water will also help your plants get better access to nutrients, and help prevent deficiencies and toxicities.
It makes me so sad when people tell growers to use H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) to kill root rot.
After you start noticing a recovery, some growers will snip off old dead roots, but I often don't. It's much more important to look at the roots in order to accurately diagnose root rot. I have tried used commercial grade H2O2 before, and I was never able to use it to get rid of root rot, so this is NOT RECOMMENDED!
