From 1/26/20 to 2/5/20 this #1 used 300 ppm of solids . PH starting at 2/26 5.6 rose to 6.1 on 2/4/20 then brought it down to 5.8 and rose again to 6.1 by 2/7/20. Made the bucket change on 2/8/20 .
The ph was adjusted to 5.6 and the MC 16 grams in 4 gallons of ro water which gave a 768 ppm. I ran them without calimagic thru 2/27/20 and the TDS was 253 ppm, used 515 ppm of the nutrients.Not sure if I needed to run the nutrients down that far , no deficiency’s at all ! Took 4-1/4 mL of acid thru all that to hold the ph down.

#2 -1/26/20 - 2/8/20 didn’t use much in nutrients and water, ph started dropping so I changed the water and nutrients 4 grams a gallon. 2/8/20-2/28/20 didn’t appear when I started at 743 ppm and ended with 181 ppm of solids didn’t hurt her at all no deficiency’s. That’s the lowest numbers on solids I’ve ever done!

#3 is the squirt from 1/26/20 - 2/10/20 didn’t do so well used 31 ppm in all these days Water and nutrients change. 2/10/20-3/6/20 starting at 744 ppm we are just down to 419 ppm , on the 29th I added 4 mL calimagic and 1-1/4 mL acid ph at 5.6 and slowly rose to 6.1 on 3/6/20 added 1 mL acid ph now 5.7 . Looks like she wants to be perpetual grow on the water and nutrients.

Thanks @MrSauga im gonna stick with the MC and dwc till I get it right . The rdwc (Flood&drain)has been way easier with the MC
Good to hear West. I have no doubt your results will be nothing short of amazing. Your other grow looks like it's going to be a beauty of a down and you have done a great job keeping them in check. Hopefully this run will be a little vacation for you ;)
