Need a consultant

Hello, I’m completely new to growing, and I’ve set out on a task wich might be a little to much. I’m growing two plants indoor, they are germinated and I’m in week 2. I want to build an automated grow, where I can remote control it in such a way that I can be away for 1-2 weeks.

I’m leaving on friday for a 8 days, and I’d like to talk to someone experienced within hydroponics for knowing what to do and not etc.

Is it ok to ask for a coach here? I would be wiling to pay for an hour or two.

@Myfriendis410 @peachfuzz can help with something like that, if by some chance they can’t there are plenty here that can.
Can you tell us a little more about you grow. If you could also post pictures of your grow, that may help in figuring out the right path.
Good luck!

Hello, thank you for the reply. I have created a grow journal:

Strain: White Widow and AK47
Method: Hydroponic drip with Rockwool cubes.
I have a drip system with reservoir wich collects the runoff.
After I put in the nutrients I’m around 6,5 in PH, adjusted down to 5,5.
EC: 1,3 (measured now after 2 days of running the same mix.
Indoor tent, 80x80cm
Lights: Lumatec Attic 200w
Temperature: in tent 29C, reservoir 23,9C, RH: 40%
Outside humidity 25%
Fan and filter, not sure the capacity, but seems sufficient
Regular humidifier, will try to set it up with an auto refill pump from tank
No CO2 system

Grow journal:

I also have an air pump with an airstone. I know this is needed for a DWC system, but do I need to run it for my setup? Continously?
