2.5 feet, although were getting close to the ceiling now. just moved it yesterday. there's a white widow auto in there on the same feed schedule and its doing fine

That's a good schedule

Ya sure ya didn't accidentally overdose it?

Those roots look bad, I'm thinking you have more issues than just nutes

U use any enzyme cleaners like hydroguard or z7???

How are u mixing the nutes??

Calmag always 1st
Mix well, sit for 10min

Micro is next, same mix and sit for 10min

Then u can add the rest

Have you had scum on the bucket walls, bottom or air stone


New Member
do you think its salvageable ? should I just keep it in a flush for a week and see what happens.

no enzyme cleaner, think i might order some Hydroguard now.

No flush dosent really work in DWC like soil

I'd add 1/2 nutes of what u been using, in proper order
Get some hydroguard, I also use z7 alongside it

Then watch her and the new root growth

Watch the water too, see if it's gunking up at all

pH 5.6-6 is best

Does your pH fluxuat a lot?? Tap or RO water??

More air through the bubblers will probably help.

I use 0.9 ml (or less than 1/4tsp) / US gal ( 0.25ml / liter) , CALiMAGic from seed to harvest in coco/perlite drain-to-waste. Too much will lock out potassium, magnesium, manganese, and iron. Lack of potassium causes the root zone to acidify, and root tips to die back. Does the pH of your nutrient solution drop through the week? If so, that would confirm my suspicion.


New Member
yes, I've been telling the ol'man we need another stone cause the roots were so thick .. as for pH dropping im not 100% he usually does the daily checking. I think the water is a little on the warmer side now too - its turning into spring here( Canada) so its been warming up. -- he has said something about a molasses tea for the roots ?

The hydroguard and z9, z9 in Kanuckistan, will help the warm rezz water

My rezz was easily 80-82deg, ambient temperature, last summer and never had any Goopies issue

Get both or at least one ASAP
