Another question..... do the root riot cubes go all the way down into the hydrotron where the water level is or just above?
Hey man I found you again. I will figure this website out one day I swear.Put the timer on the girls 18-6
This is normal and if it’s dropping to 5.5 after after adding nutrient at this stage of life is fine. Mine will do the exact same but within 24 hrs start to climb back up.i had a small set back, put a fan on the girls and dried out the root riot plugs, still making rookie mistakes. They came back a little bit and i think they will do better in the system, transplanted tonight and hand watered with 1/2 strength nutes. does anyone have experience with PH'ing water with nutes in a reservoir? RO water was 6.2 and my doser brought it back down to 5.8, added nuets and it went down to 5.5, i know 5.8 is the sweet spot so should i put my nutes in first then dose up? with the automatic doser?
I'm still learning too lol, i did figure out how to tag people though.Hey man I found you again. I will figure this website out one day I swear.
Is this a recirculating system?
R there feed lines??
R you manually top feeding at this stage??
Have you got your res treatment yet??
Enjoy man if I stop coming over here tag me in because sometimes notifications quit coming my way. Play safe and enjoy
thanks, because i didn't want to change my ph down to up then back again i needed to know tendencies.This is normal and if it’s dropping to 5.5 after after adding nutrient at this stage of life is fine. Mine will do the exact same but within 24 hrs start to climb back up.
I don’t run a ph controller for veg and it climbs steadily 24 hr after mixing through the veg cycle. I knock it down to 5.5 or 5.6 and let it slide to 6.0 then knock it back down. I do this almost every day in veg.
If I had to guess based on my situation I would set the controller for ph down at 5.8 then mix it will drop to 5.5 and the controller will do nothing until it climbs up 24 to 48 hrs later. Then it shouldkeep it at 5.8 until you res change. Again this is based on my nutrient and water chemistry
All good I will strap myself in lmao. If hand watering with RO you may need a bit of cal/mg in there.I'm still learning too lol, i did figure out how to tag people though.
it is a closed system, no feed lines per say, it floods up through the bottom of the buck then gravity feeds back to the brain bucket then back to the res.
i was manually feeding but kind of messed up because i used the res water knowing i had issues with the res. started watering with straight RO water from the top.
i did get the water treatment stuff but had already opened the Clear Rez so I'm using it first. i did empty the res and filled with tap water and ph'ed it. when the pumps started circulating the water it was flushing out the water in the chiller first ...... lets just say i have to flush a couple more times, I'm giving each flush 24 to 36 hours. going through the first flush now and ill flush today, when the temps get warm enough to turn the hose on.
I'm learning so i going to make mistakes, i have to take it serious as to what's most important. sometimes what i dont think is very important is very important lol. so far my self proclaimed nickname is Killa, because i haven't grown shit. it will get better, i have the tools now i have to figure out how to use them with a little bit of knowledge, hell some people have PH'ds on how to grow shit. lol hang in there with me it might be a wild ride
When the res pump kicks on and fills the buckets at what level will it shut off in relation to the net pots?A few pics of the good , bad and ugly. First res went to hell in a handbasket, flushed 1x so far, going to run another flush thru tomorrow. Then back to nuets and better eye on what's going on.
The root riot has something on the top of it but I think it's when I was top feeding with bad res water. Onward and upwards
Ok, I'll try to explain as best as a can. I have a res, hooked up to a brain bucket, the brain bucket has floats inside it, the floats are hooked up to a timer. Everything is gravity flow so the pots never get any higher than what in the brain bucket, everything is leveled. There's a pump in the res and 1 in the brain bucket.Honestly no idea I’m just trying to picture how this system is working.
