So every day my plants are sucking up half the water in my 5 gallon bucket and I fill it up every day or two. When I do this do I need to add more nutrients or leave it until my next scheduled change? This just started happening when they began to flower.
It is getting close to 90 here now and I am wondering will that effect plants, or do I need to move it from garage to inside?
Greets, if your adding water back to the mix then over time your ppm will deplete. The rate this happens is based on total water volume. Lets say you have a good ppm and everything is working as intended. You want to replace the water with “top up solution” that you adjust the strength of by reading the plants. If ppm goes down with water, add more, if not add less. As a start point top up solution should be half strength of what you originally added.
With enough water volume, chiller, and filter system you can keep the same resivor through the entire veg, then the entire flower cycle.
