A really bad storm is on it’s way here and I’m using DWC to grow. I have to keep the pump running for oxygen and I don’t have a back up generator nor a “Flintstone Car” to peddle 'til power comes back on. Is there anything I can do? 2 White Widows in flower - Help!!!
Dang. I hope you don’t lose power! I grow in soil so have no advice.
I also grow in soil but I have a generator. do you have an inverter to plug in your cigarette lighter? if so you can plug it in your car? they do make inverters that hook up to car batteries.
We had a bad ice storm last year that knocked out our power for 6 days I had 8 plants in rdwc and over than slowed growth and them trying to start flowering they did fine.
You might want to check your local pet stores for a portable aerator that take batteries.good luck
Great advice. Petsmart sells one for $15.
Could go real low tech. Pull some of your water out into a gallon jug, about 3/4 full and shake the living crap out of it for a few minutes. Adds oxygen back into the water. Do a few gallons or more depending on how big your setup is every 6-8 hrs and should have sufficient oxygen.
Genius!!! So 1 for each plant?
Now that’s what I’m talking about and I will lose weight at the same time
Ha ha ha! Gonna have the forearms of a 15 year old boy by the time the storm is over!
I would do 1 per res unless you’re using an extremely large container for res. Like if you had 2 plants on one 27 gallon tote or something, then maybe put 2 in there. Otherwise 1 should be enough. You’re just looking to weather a storm so it doesn’t have to be perfect.
Add music (got batteries for that) to dance in between shifts. Are you a fitness trainer? I love it
I’ll get 1 for each plant because they are really big. Thank you so much
Still better than those shake weights!!!
Nope, I can’t even lift 35lbs right now, doubt they would let me in a gym.
Probably could be good for 6-8 hours without a pump going if water Temps are like 68-72.
If you’re out longer than that you can add small amount of h202 every 3 ish hours.
Just checked on ww grown in hydroponics and in flower. All leaves are drooping. Ph is 5.9, Temp 78, Humidity 40. I fed yesterday so I’m guessing it has something to do with that. Maybe I screwed up??? Flush??
Go to Walmart to pick up a battery operated air pump
Is 78 your res temp?
That’s not a bad idea.
