DWC root rot slime - Advanced nutes - Help!


New Member
Just went through root rot 3 weeks ago and plant just now recovering. Added Great white and new nutes last night and just looked in bucket and bottom and side are tan/light brown and the bottom of net pots and roots have a clear to white slime in spots. Is this normal? Beneficials or do I have problems?

With root rot they usually are real slimy, brown to dark brown and will fall off in clumps just by shaking the net pot in the air. Smells bad too.

I hear that bennies coat the roots with a clear kind of slime but I've never used them so haven't seen it myself.

yea the great white makes a brown/yellow slime all over everything.
I changed to orca it's a liquid form of great white no slime.

i think once you have the rot you can't 100% get rid of it without changing everything.
If you can post a pic will be a lot easier to help.

To update about my main post
The girls never made it.
I did a few experiments with them the slime never realy went away 100% it was well into the Stoke.
Adding any nutes at all made the slime go ravage
I did all this in 3 day increments fresh Rez each time.
I fed piranha at 4ml into Stoke = fast new root growth
Feeding nutes from top over pebbles = slime
Topping up bucket = less slime
Adding silica = less slime
Adding orca = slime
