hi guys/girls just a quick one so just going by what ive picked up, so was thinking for seedling stage and wk 2 if it would be ok to use my tap water, comes in about 220-250 ppm EC.0.47 so would that be ok or just to high, as it will be PH 6, but then moving onto early veg wk2 - 3 mix tap water with R,0 water to lower PPM before introducing my nutes at an eighth strength. any info would great just gathing what i can and trying to figure things out and my be find summits I havent come across or been told about yet, just trying to understand as much as i can as this might just be my calling this

yeah thanks for that just trying to cover every angle, thats why i went DWC you see as I like the fact I have total control of what I give to the plant, start to finish, and i enjoy gathering data and solving things, and looking for ways to try out new things, and growing brings so much more to my life now, as ive been suffering with severe arthritis for nearly 10 yrs, only 42 now been waiting for knee replacement but said im to young and wont be to about 50, so anyone out there in my situation can understand what difficulties that brings, deppression anxiety isolation not been able to get about, can get about but cant walk for more then 20/30 mins, so at times its been hard basically losing the use of my right leg, but using cannabis has helped so much with all of the above things I mentioned esp my MH and I found that cannabis eased my pain and leveled out my anxiety and now Im stable, so esp with no end in sight for a knee replacement, so its long term, and i got sick of paying for average bud, and now with all the advances in LEDs I had to give a it go, as i could save that money, as first grow will save me so much money,

so thanks guys for bearing with me I know ive been asking lots of questions just want to learn as much as i can, and from as many different peeps as poss, as all growers have their way an what works for one grower my not work for another, its just a case of finding out what works for you, so thats where Im at just trying to find out whats going to be best for me thats all but hope you guys had a good wkend

@spab, yes the hydroton is find but yes the net is small. 

PXL 20220123 175429186

This is a 4' from the states and it's what I use. Look at the wide band that goes around the top, that's a light shield, and the better the pot the wider the band. Some don't have shit for one and would allow light to get in, then ROOT ROT!

Check out Misher thread too.
