What’s wrong still?


#21

Ok going to get you set up with pics… :wink:
I couldn’t remember who i needed to get pics too… :grin:

:v::sunglasses:

Then how do I keep my water temp at 68F? If I don’t run it like that the temps go upwards of 72F+. I have the feed tube just going straight into the water not on the plant if that makes s difference


#23

You had stated earlier that your roots were white; any chance we could get a natural light picture of the upper and lower plant?

The O/P was running a dripper still which would retard root development.


#24

So if your not running pump and your water temps are rising… then we need to figure out a way to cool your air temps…
Air temps are way too high… :wink:

Here is the worst plant and root



#26

Here is the best plant



#27

My air temp is set at 75F should it be lower?


#28

Yes , 70 deg air temp at canopy level …
Buckets shoulf be lower…
How do your water lines run…
Draw me a pic…
More than likely your system isn’t running correctly… we chang that and things get better…
Think pressure and valum… both are super important when it comes to rdwc… :grin:

Excuse my drawing. The lines coming out of each grow bucket have a 90 degree elbow that the hose hooks onto so it has to wrap around the bucket to go straight to the reservoir I’m going to the hardware store to find a straight barb to replace it with so I can have a straight line like the pic

I’ve turned my heater off about 2 hours ago, opened an air vent in the tent with a fan blowing in and still 74.6F. Any ideas besides air conditioner?

I’m sorry to see you having this problem. I too suffered with the dreaded root rot for 3 grows, till I learned what was going on. I bought a chiller for $400 and don’t regret it one bit. I have a 60gal system, so you could get a smaller one for less money.


#32

I have received my chiller and it is hooked up since yesterday! 3 days ago I posted pics of my problems with the plant and roots. Now here they are again do the roots look like they are getting better? I know the plant has doubled almost since getting the ppm up and adding the peroxide


#33

Wow, hell yeah that looks better and it’s like a totally different plant. The power of the forum has saved another life yet again.


#34

Ya I also took the advice of more air in the buckets and bought a new air pump going from 571gph to 950gph and bigger air stones. I’m still having a problem with my bucket temps hanging around 69.7-70.5F. My res is at 65F. Running the auto feed just dumping into the bucket about 15 minutes every 4 1/2 hours. Any suggestions on how to get that down alittle only way I know of is to run the pump at closer intervals.


#35

Are you running a RDWC? I run my pump all the time. I have my chiller set at 65 and it never gets over 67


#36

Yes I’m running RDWC. Since installing my chiller and playing with the auto feed timer I’ve gotten it set around 68 steady now. I was just having people tell me not to run it except 15 minutes every 4-5 hours and that’s what was killing me on the temps


#37

I run mine 24/7
