Brown slime in RDWC


My plants are only two weeks old and they have brown slime, what can I do to fix this

Water temp ? Keep below 70f

Pic of air bubbles in water ? May be to low air

Does it smell ? Slimy? Roots look brown but it could be from additives , what do you add to your water ?

Yeah that water looks like it has recharge in it :sweat_smile:m I’ve added it to my res right before a change before and my roots always go dark for a bit.

Yeah those look healthy , just a lil color from the water , looking good though

Water level is too high , plant’s are starting to damp off…
They are dieing…
Water level Needs to be 2" lower than net basket…
Don’t worry about anything else other than that…
Everything else will come around later…
Looks like you could use more oxygen tho…
Either new air stones or a bigger air pump…
Also make sure that all air lines to each stone is the same length and make sure that your cleaning your air stones every 3 weeks in vegg…

I don’t even give a $hit about these girls…
My brother was supposed to come and get them…
Clones , but they are definitely vegging after 3 weeks from cutting…
Hopefully I’ll get them into a vegg area tonight…
I’m a procrastinator… :man_facepalming::man_shrugging:


Over 20 plant’s in a 3x2 area…
Three 3 gallon dwc buckets with a modified lid with a 950 gph air pump and six 2x2 inch cylindrical air stones and neoprene collars to hold up the plant’s…
And eight 6500 Kelvin , 23 watt cfls and two 8 watt 6500 Kelvin LEDs

Do you have any air stones? I don’t see that water bubbling at all. The roots still need oxygen in the water. IMHO, the more oxygen in the water the better.
