    Trying DWC for my first time. Im currently on my third grow.

    I guess it's 4th now with this dwc set up.

    10g reservoir with an air stone disk.
    Room I'm setting up my tent it's a 4x4X6
    Ventilaion
    4 x 8 " Oscillating fans
    6" inline w/ Carbon filter
    Veg:
    4 bulb t5- right now in basic bulbs have a agromax on order
    + 300 actual watts from two huge CFL bulbs
    Flower:1000 hps

    Nutrients: Emerald Harvest 2 part line
    Grow A + B
    Bloom A+B
    Sturdy stalk
    HoneyChome
    Cal mag
    King Kola

    Another nutrient I'll be adding on my self is
    Big time enzyme and hydroguard and flora kleen. I'll be doing more research.

    Right now it's sitting in plain rain water ph 6.1.
    I noticed it raised a little within the week to 7. I instantly fixed it.
    But I've read people change the water every week or two. So I changed It today.

    I'll be doing a water change every week.
    any advice, or critiques are welcomed. IMG_1078.JPG IMG_1870.JPG IMG_1891.JPG IMG_2020.JPG IMG_2043.JPG

    shes at 8 tops but in debating on making her 16. Hmm
    She had a little split over night. Very small so I covered it with a little foil.

    timber is the shit I like the led I have now but for less money & better performance one of their frame series like the 400w. 4 cob vero 29 really catches my fancy as do a bunch of others they are simple & everything on it you can work on

    Not much has changed I have not changed the plant to the bigger tote I have I've been lazy to change it.

    But I had some weird slime build up kind of slowed down the growth of my girl. I changed the water and washed down the roots with the sprayer I have on my sink.

    So I changed the water to rain water threw in some cal Nagano a little h2o2 was that the fight choise or are there better option to cleaning my roots?

    Not sure what I've done wrong but it's been a struggle with this girl. Learning dwc is giving me a hard time but so far I have not killed her.

    Yet. . .

    Well here's an update any tips or helpful would be appreciated .
    Nutes Emerald Harvest 2 -part kit.
    Temps in water 66-71
    Temp in tent 68-76
    Ph:5.8-6.3 I try to keep it in those ranges at all times.
    Rh: 45-60

    Her growth is real slow maybe I stunted the growth or socked the roots how can I help her bounce back?

    Just time? IMG_2326.JPG IMG_2314.JPG IMG_2310.JPG IMG_2312.JPG

    not familiar with your nutes as I use gh 3 part but everything else looks good I overfed on my first grow & really fucked things up plant grew slow & mutated like cauliflower or something now I watch my ppm really close sometimes less is best I'm still learning this dwc stuff my 2 girls are starting to bud & for the first time in awhile don't have anything going haywire on me but that could change at any time the rain has stopped for now & it's turned off cold here in the gold country I'm having to run a small electric heater in my room can't wait for spring IMG_0820.JPG IMG_0821.JPG IMG_0822.JPG

    You have only two in there? Damn they're huge and thanks for the feedback.

    So far I've been keeping a watch on ppms and so far so good I'm at 900 ppms on her she seems to like it I think maybe I should drop it a bit some?

    The biggest problem I'm having is sometimes I see slime build up on the sides of my res . I start to panic when I see it on some of my roots. How can I prevent slime? I do use h2o2 at times maybe I'm not using it adequately?

    I fed @ 840 but you gotta remember I'm using gh nutes & their feeding schedule so my ppm.wont be of much use to you I also use cal- mag as our drinking water comes from snow runoff & once the chlorine evaporates ppm is under 60 I like the gh feeding schedule as it has ppm numbers to run which makes it easy normally right now I would feed @ about 1200 ppm but my battery's for my good meter are dead & im using the drinking water one which tops out at 1000ppm so I played it safe as we only have one store here I'll have to drive to Jackson or angels camp for batteries I would drop the ppm. down to about 600 & wait her out it's been my experience that they seem docile for a time & then they wake up topping really slowed them down for some reason if there is anything I can help you with let me know I'm still figuring this shit out too
