Hello everyone, 

Very excited to be part of this awesome community! Hope everyone is keeping well and safe Smile

Ive started my first indoor grow with auto northern lights and I'm between the germination/veg stage.

Currently it's under a viparspectra p600 LED in a plastic zip bag to stay humid and 18/6 light schedule.

I've got a 20L DWC bucket with an air stone running to help get the chlorine out, currently no nutrients added (I have the 3-part GH flora series) it's only been pH adjusted to 5.7.

Any advice on the next step would be massively appreciated, thankyou!

@malgamesh welcome to Percy’s mate. I’m going to assume that you are planning to run this plant via rdwc. Definitely out of my zone of expertise so I’ll leave that for someone with more complete knowledge of rdwc. Please make yourself home and let us know if you have any other questions.

@malgamesh, hi and welcome to Percy's. 

I would suggest reading as much about DWC and RDWC. Yes your water needs to sit if it's chlorinated.

You have a PH meter I'm guessing, and you'll need a EC meter as well. You can't mix nutrients with out it.

You'll want a good plastic pitcher to measure with. I like Accu Pour.

You'll need to get Cal/mag from GH if you don't have it, and Hydroguard. Read up on them it's to much info for now.

If it's just a Bubble bucket:

keep as cool as poss,

no light leak,

use Hydroguard RELIGIOUSLY,

cover net pot for light leaks.

You can use syringes, 12ml cap, to measure your nutrients. 1 per bottle don't mix them.

Maintain a 3/4"-19mm air space under the net pot.

Start with a low EC and work up slowly.

And when starting out, always keep a back up seed, you may not be as good as you first think. lol

That'll get ya started. Good luck.           peace  🙂

@malgamesh welcome to Percy’s mate. 
may I suggest you start a grow diary right away. Great way to post your progress and include all necessary info in one place. When you encounter an issues, other members can better see what’s going with all the info in one place to help —.  Help the members help you.

when you start a diary, enter a link to it in your profile and let admin know you’ve started one so you get your bling.

Honor is simply the morality of superior men.
