    Re: First DWC grow - Help wanted

    I can give you a little advice on DWC I have grown with that method before though the real expert around here is Rifleman, he is who got me to try it.

    Here are the tips I can share with you,
    Have spares of everything, extra air stones and pumps and a good reliable PH pen and PPM are a must have. Also calibrate your pens at least once a month because being wrong with your PH or PPM can cause HAVIC really fast. Things happen quickly in DWC so you will not have much time to fix an issue, the bright side is, plants love DWC and if done properly your plants will grow like crazy.
    Unless you have a lot of height adjustment, flip your plants a little sooner then you would if you were growing in soil, like I said earlier, they grow REALLY fast and it is easy for them to grow out of control.
    I used 5 gallon buckets for my reservoirs and grew 6 plants at a time but I had 7 buckets. That extra bucket allowed me to swap out reservoirs and wash the one that was being used so I could swap it with the next plant. Believe it or not I used toilet bowl cleaner to wash my buckets with, because it was loaded with bleach and bleach kills all the bad things that will cause root rot. Just be sure to thoroughly rinse each bucket after you wash them.
    Last tip would be to drop over to Riflemans journal and introduce yourself. He is a great guy with a ton of knowledge and he is always welcome to share it with others, just do not tell him I said that, do not need his head to swell

    I'll pull up a chair and help where I can. You've got some great folks watching over you.

    I tried the top feeding dwc and it seems like more trouble than it's worth UNLESS you germinate directly in hydroton or something. The rock wool and jiffy pellets are just like sponges and it seems to do more harm than good. I like rock wool and stuff, but for myself, I'll not be doing the bubbleponics setup again.

    Mine was just a 1/4" tube wedged at the bottom of the net pot so as to keep from soaking the rock wool. Ran continually.

    I know a Guy called Liquid Jade from YouTube. In His Videos, He used rapid rooters for germination. Once germinated, He Just places a second rapid rooter in top of the First, what gives the stem a nice stability. After that, it seems to be very easy for him to fix this to His netpots. I little of hydro Clay arround it and youre done without using any rockwool
