New to RDWC need help please

Im in the South and growing in an insulted greenhouse. How do I get and keep my water temperature right? Im thinking a room a/c with a dehumidifier. Good idea or bad? Also, I put 4 plants into rdwc, in 24 hours one was wilted to falling over, another was beginning to wilt, the third was looking so so, the 4 perfect. I moved the 3 to soil again and have some success in bringing them back to life. I cut back the worst one to almost nothing, and it’s full of new growth. The one surviver, a small clone, is thriving. Could it be water temp that caused what I think is shock? I have a reservoir and 4 bucket system, All have air stones


Water chiller is your best bet…
Water temps between 66 and 72 should keep you out of trouble…


Or just staying in soil til temps fall back lower (@peachfuzz :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes::stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:)
