What’s there to criticize?? Brother that’s looking fantastic. :clap:t2::clap:t2::+1:t2:

I try thought you had a journal already. You know if I might interject here, if you post everything on one journal/thread, it will make it easier for folks to keep up with your grow and easier for you to reflect on any issues or questions you may have. Either way, I’ll be following if I can keep up… lol :rofl::joy::rofl:
Good luck! :v::+1:t2::sunglasses:

to form air roots right? …thats another concept among the many im new to with hydro. which brings up a question, i had cut mylar reflective film to top my net pots up to the stalk and dampen light but i have always worried about creating a poor airflow through the hydroton. is that a valid concern or am i overthinking it? im not so much concerned with mold as i mist with hydroguard like it was binaca in the 90s

Exactly…
If pump dies, you won’t kill the plant… :wink:
Slowly decrease water level to promote more air roots…

just how low can i let it get? :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve had mine 4 or 5” below and it didn’t effect them (short time.) But, more roots in the water means more up take the plant does while still maintaining the proper air gap.

good to know

What is the entire nutrient regimen you are running? I’m assuming you are running more than just that. The Florablend is a humic acid IIRC and is responsible for the dark color.

ahh i thought you just wanted to know what made the water so dark :slight_smile: im running the GH Flora Duo at 2/3 ratio, RO water, armor Si, flora duo, Calmag, hydroguard, rapidstart, Florablend,floralicious+ and diamond nectar. been adding nutrients to my mixing tote in that order with about 10 minutes in between each nutrient before adding aside from Silica i give that about 2 to 4 hours and i always mix it in first.
