Need Help Please
I am currently growing Dwc and my PH and PPM are dropping fast. what could be the reason this is happening? I am growing in a 10 gallon tub with 5 gallons of water. We are using the base nutrients of Flora series and we are using green planet for all other nutrients. There was a white foam at the top not alot but it was there. It don't stick and everything looks healthy?
This is my tub #1 where the white foam by the reservoir.
This is tub #2 I believe I have root rot but not to sure. I keep my room temp about 75-76 F RH is running 50 - 55%
Hey welcome, Yes it hard it find info on DWC. I am just a mere foot solider in the battle of growing in water. I'm not an expert but I'll talk to you till someone comes along, my names Forest, Forest Gump. Ok enough of that. Question time:
Is it a RDWC or DWC?
First time using this system?
List your nuts and the order that you add them?
Are you using Bennies? Or Sterile?
Have you ever had root rot? (sorry I have to ask)
Do you flush the system beside just for harvest?
How old is this grow, is this the first problem?
What is your water source, tap or RO?
We'll start with that, TTYS.
@woodi2 here is the answers to all your questions hope I give you enough.
1. It is mainly DWC it recirculates through a aquarium chiller. Holds temp around 65 F.
2. No its the 2nd time
3. I am using General Hydroponics Flora Series. I add ( Micro, Grow, Bloom) Hydroguard Cal Mag. I mix my solution in a 5 gallon water jug and use RO water. and then transfer it to the tubs. When I PH it before emptying it runs 6.0.
4. I am using the little brown balls. I can't remember the name. (ha ha )
5. I have never had root rot.
6. I don't flush just for harvest.
7. I started Dec 5th
8. Water source is a RO system.
@old-hippie would u happen to know is that the reason my roots are small on the one plant under fed? Would i consider it okay now with the way my readings were this morning ?
Tub 1 last night 5.6 PH 576 PPM 1.2 EC Tub 2 Last night 5.2 PH ,542 PPM 1.1 EC
this Morning 5.7 PH 571 PPM 1.2 EC This Morning - 5.7 PH 548 PPM 1.1 EC
IMO, When in doubt flush. Drain, fill with PHed RO water, pore over medium to rinse, let circulate for one to two hours, drain. Refill with fresh PHed nutz, slightly lower than you were at, let circulate for 24 hrs, keeping an eye on PH. You can use Florakleen if you think there might be toxicity, or you can use it just to clean. On your mix add cal/mag first, then micro, gro, bloom, hydroguard. If you use silica, add it 1st (wait 1 hr) before the cal/mag ect. Everything else looks good, your doing it, sometimes you just need to clean house and reset things. Try and clean as much water as you can out of the system when flushing. Your at almost two months so they should be getting hungry like mentioned above, just watch the EC and PH. good luck, let's see how it goes
