I recently started growing in a deep water culture setup. I Am growing autoflowers. They seem smaller then they were in soil. I guess my real question here is does anybody have experience growing autos in dwc.
I am also looking to see if anyone uses fox farm products for dwc as well and you have a good nute schedule.

Additional nutes like Hydroguard and z7

How often do you change yer water

Lots of info needed bud

Fox Farm already had a schedule for nutes for dwc grows

Here you go. If you're just starting feeds I'd start at quarter strength one week then half next week then full dosage once a week.

It's DWC bud...

I'd be hesitant to go full strength with Fox Farm until yer sure they can take it, I've used it, pretty hot stuff

Yes agreed. Foxfarm does have a regiment for dwc. It seems as if the product is not all that suitable for dwc as it requires toomuch nutrients at least from what I have been using. It all coagulated around the roots. Now this may be suitable for regular plants. Just not sure of autoflowering plants. I use it at 1/4 strength and now have what looks to be root rot

There could be more things causing that then just the nutes.

Yes my apologies. I have 4 plants total in dwc. All autoflower 2 amnesia gold sativas, 1 one bubble indica and 1 amnesia. In a 3ftx3ftx62in tent. 600w UFO light. each on an air pump. 18 hour light cycle. Vented. I'm using fox farm nutrients. I am at week 4 I change res every week. I last used the sledgehammer flush as per the schedule.

This is my first run on dwc and not sure what is going on here. the plants seem small but roots look like crap water temp is at 70 degrees as well
