Hey everyone Meat here and im a shinning noob with dreams of well idk. I got my beans from Crop King 300 watt led 5 gallon DWC 10 inch net GH 3 part ferts with a bottle of cal mag. Started the 23 of November ran two weeks without ferts. Dont have any past photos but will try to update from today forward. PPms as of today are 390. Changing the water tomorrow around 8 pm and going to try and up the ferts farter. I really dont have experience here but im pretty good with science and i have a good understanding of everything i "think". Anybody want to join in on my first time welcome any seasoned growers fell like piping in and pointing me in the right direction thanks in advance.

The way i stated ferting was one teaspoon micro grow and bloow to 5 gallons for the first week put me at about 230-240 ppm. Changed it last week put two teaspoons per the five gallons gave me a ppm of 390. I also always have added one teaspoon of cal mag to the 5 gallons. Changing the water tommorow and am thinking of going with three teaspoons to the 5 gallons. I use distilled water 000-001 ppm and 5.5 -5.9 ph. If anyone has advice as if im ferting right or not chime in. Ill put another pick up tommorow. Thanks for Looking

I haven't changed mine since I started three weeks ago and my plants are doing awesome. White Roots. Huge plants. Clear water. I think res changes aren't needed weekly myself. I will def change before flowering. Just my opinion though. Yours are looking great.
