I use bottled water. The pH is 7.25 but I fix it at 5-5, 6-5 using ph down. when i started i increased it gradually it used to be 0.6,0.8 now it is 1.8 in three days due to 1.4 fluctuation
Hidroponic I made a handmade r-dwc using a 5x20lt bucket. Total water volume is around 65lt.
I use Terra Aquatica Flora Tripart and terra aquatica cal-mag. i also use voodoo juice and sensyzm
I use Terra Aquatica Flora Tripart and terra aquatica cal-mag. I use voodoo juice and sensyzm because there is no hydroguard in my country
air cooled 600w hps
30-35 degrees during the day, 24-26 degrees at night
humidity at night 55-60 humidity daytime 40-45
timed humidifier and exhaust fan. they work at the same time so the humidity does not rise too much
yes there is ventilation but I don’t understand the question very well
I use CO2 but I don’t know exactly how much CO2 I’m emitting (my co2 meter always shows atmospheric ppm or very high) I use a little more than CO2 area calculation since my grow room is not closed.
I’m growing for five years but it’s my first time doing hydroponics
I’ve already spent my money, I don’t remember much
R-DWC It’s hard to keep the temperature constant because I use an ice bottle. Between 17-23 degrees and the reservoir volume is 65 liters
Hello there! Share your experiences with me as I am new to hydroponics. At first I think my plants are at the same rate of growth in soil even though they are in hydroponics. After the first ten days, I saw a few nutrient and pH problems in the leaves and I intervened immediately. I had read a few things about h2o2 somewhere and when I tried it (1ml in 1lt) the leaves of my plants were bent down and I thought they were dead, but they came back when they flushed. After a few weeks it was improving again slowly. I checked the roots. They were slightly darker than the cream color. I thought it was root rot and waited a little longer. When I checked a week later they were slimy. And I cut them (I’ll leave the photo below) I blocked the light leak. I bought a resun lp40 because I thought my air motor was also insufficient. I put two air stones in each bucket. now it looks like both waves and boiling. And there is this ppm rise problem, if you have a solution for it, please share it with me, thanks in advance.
Sounds right to me. For best results you’re going to want your ph within a couple tenths of 5.8. Allowing to drift to 6.5 before resetting is too high. Other things that will cause root rot are high solution temps, need this to stay around 68f, lots of oxygen, and to keep light out. Seems like you’ve solved potential issues with dissolved oxygen and light.

thanks for your comment. I can’t change the reservoir right now because water coolers are expensive and I don’t have the budget so I’m going to make an ice bottle for now. voodoo juice and senyzm organic, would these be a problem? Good bacteria after all. By the way, do you have any recommendations for silica? The reason I use CO2 is to make my plants heat resistant as the air temperature is 86f+ degrees. The water became cloudy 3 days after the reservoir change. What is the cause of water turbidity? Could it be sensyzm and voodoo juice?
thanks for your comment. For now I’m going with the paper pH measurement. My ph buffers will arrive in a few days and I’ll be able to fine-tune them. no more oxygen and light leak problem I guess. I have one more question; the water in the reservoir is turbid. It wasn’t like this yesterday. Is the turbidity caused by voodoo water and sensyszm?
Hydroguard works very well, I know that. Unfortunately, it is not available in our country. I use these two as these two products are recommended as alternatives. On October 22, I changed the reservoir water and ran it for 1 hour with h2o2 %35. No light leaks, water temperature does not exceed 68F and quite a lot of bubbles, I don’t understand why there are bacteria. ice bottle change is not a problem for me. I have 5 in 1 pencil (TDS,Ph,EC,Ppm…), I ordered a new one because my ph calibration liquid is finished and I am waiting for the shipment. Thanks for your help
