Yellow Leaves on Ultra Led Gourmet Herb Seed Kit (Dill)

Hi everyone!

I recently bought an AeroGarden Ultra Led and got also the Gourmet Herb Seed Kit. I'm on day 34 and I have a problem with my dill. 

It started to grow slower and some leaves are getting yellow. I use the liquid nutritient which came with the seed kit. The pump is working fine and the lights are not too close or away. What can be the reason? The room temparature is 84 - 86F and the water inside the reservoir is about 90F isn't that a little too warm? Is the pump causing the heat? Or what else can be the reason? Here a picture.

It looks like you have healthy basil next to it, so maybe you're right that the dill can't tolerate the heat as well.  Maybe a very gentle fan nearby could help keep it happy.

It's probobly the heat. Mine is holding up OK, but I lost a cilantro plant on Tuesday. Monday and Tuesday it got up to 90°. My other cilantro is OK, for the time being. But the dill is doing well. But it is only 81° this afternoon.

I ordered an Aquarium air pump with air stone and an Aquarium temperature measure and ph test.

 

So let's see what is the problem :)

 

I will update what the PH and Temperature is.

The room heat could be the problem - that's awfully warm for greens. Or, it might be time to dump the water and start over with fresh. A good idea once a month, anyway.
