Cold Damage

Symptoms often become visible some days after exposure to critically low temperatures.  The rate of development depends on the severity of exposure, and the conditions afterward.  Many symptoms are similar to other plant stresses such as lack of water, root-rot disease, heat and light stress, and as such can be difficult to diagnose.  Closely following temperatures of the grow environment are key to determining these symptoms as being caused by cold exposure.
