No clue either in the spray

My 1st reaction was not to use it, but yer call

You need 5gal buckets.

What country are you in? Try local bulk food stores, eBay, Amazon, not sure that one with a hole will work

Yes 5 gallon bucket with a lid then you cut a hole in the lid and put the net pot in the lid hole. Then zip tie the lid to the bucket. And I’m cross on black airlines. I don’t believe it’s necessary. If water was flowing through I could see why black. But just o2 no issues.

You totally could. Just buy a ready made. But there’s nothing to it. Just a bucket with a lid. I bet you could go to and food store with a deli and get a bucket. Or a bakery. They have them. They get products in them. Any home improvement stores. Or general hardware store.

great
so update on the plant is seems to have grown ph is at 5.5 and will add some ro water today add enzyme to it and ph it ti 6.0
by yesterday it was pulling down ph from 6.1 to 5.0 in 12 hrs from yester to today from 5.8 to 5,5 i think it is a good sighn no?
ppm however raised from 1320 to 1440
what do you think

Nutrients lockout. A question. After you mix your Rez do you add more nutrients to to the mix after a day or so. You say add to to and enzymes. Like a fresh Rez. One thing is you can’t add nutrients to a rez that already has nutrients. There is a special way to mix like micro first but not before silicate. Your enzymes would be a silicate I just wanna make sure you have the mixing down properly. But at this point I’d just use the ro water ph at 5.8. Kinda a finish flush.

but tap water here is 440 ppm and 7.1 ph

Silicate always first. Always stir really well theme enzymes then root stem then calmag a then b then boost. Maybe. I only use ro. After adding all the chemicals it holds the ph like no prob. Ro has little amounts or trace elements. But all the additives give it then. Really in my opinion no need to add tap water.

We are always here. It sounds like your getting things right. Now next grow just apply your knee knowledge at the beginning. 6.0 is good. If mine was @6.0 I’d leave it if it was 6.3 I’d leave it. If it was 5.6 I leave it. But any less or more I go back to 5.5-5.9. Different nutrients uptake at different ph so that’s why we like a little ph swing.

Are we talking about my present plant ? or for the new setup ?
