I’m a first time DWC grower looking for some advice on my GDP and GG#4. They look as though something isn’t correct. I’ve had these girls since March 4th.Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Is there an 1"-3" airspace between netpot and water?
I remember when I filled the buckets I put 3 gallons of water in each bucket.
What’s the rating on that air pump ?
I ran into similar problems from water level to high and not enough air to air stones.
I have one inch of air space
I find 2 inch is best. At least for me that way when I fill up I have room for error lol.
That pump is small. I’m using 1157gph for 2 pails. I started out with a small one like that on first grow.
I dont know what is minimum to use but I would think 500gph or so. Something that makes the water look like a rolling boil is best. It causes a nice splash to make net pot damp and let you have a good air gap at same time.
Also what is your feeding schedule ? Ppm’s and ph as well.
I just got them 4 days ago. I feed them once since then
Feed every 2 times a week
WATER TEMP: 76
You want the ph at 5.8 for hydro.
How do they look now ?
Also water temp above 70 causes problems in root zone. So keep an eye out for root rot.
I’m using Hydroguard to prevent root rot
1262ppm is way to much. A plant that size I would have around 400ppm
Actually less than 400.
You think it’s to high no the little lady she is at 500 ppm. The other ladies at 1200
