    defoliation when in flower

    When did you do that, 21 days into flower and then at day 42?

    Hydrofarm 5 gal ebb and grow help

    What I have noted is that even setting Hydroton out and letting it dry completely still leaves minute root pieces and they clog my filter. I need to get another filter for my Drip Irrigation Y Filter. The one in my Y filter is torn and allowing trash/root pieces to get into the filter on the...

    Hydrofarm 5 gal ebb and grow help

    How do you clean the Hydroton after a grow? I find it hard to get all the tiny bits of root out which can clog filters.

    Hydrofarm 5 gal ebb and grow help

    Report @Mrblaze212 Did the fabric pots idea work? I like the idea. I had a failed attempt do to pH problems but I can see where the roots would be an issue. One plant of mine filled the entire bucket but did not plug.

    Dwc top drip irrigation?

    So I have a question. I run and ebb an flow system, the Active Aqua Gro and Flo 5 gallon, and about to start my next run. My last run did not do well at all and had a friend suggest I top feed my system. So I set it up and just waiting for my plants to pop so I can add them to the system. I...

    Foul smell from a plant?

    I am not in need of pruning the roots yet, but my last grow I probably could have done some root pruning. How do you go about that.

    Starting seeds to go into ebb and flow buckets.

    Ok, so it does make sense and I like the idea. The control bucket does have a sensor and it is set at the manufactures recommended height. I would have to change pumps, the one that came with the Gro and Flo is only a 250 gal/hour with low pressure, but I have this one that I used on my top...

    Starting seeds to go into ebb and flow buckets.

    It is the Active Aqua Gro and Flo 2.0. When the timer activates the pump, in the reservoir, the solution from the reservoir is pumped into a control bucket and that is distributed to the grow buckets via gravity. The system has a shut off switch that activates when the solution reaches a given...

    Starting seeds to go into ebb and flow buckets.

    Have a question on starting seeds for my 5 gallon Gro and Flo buckets. Last grow I tried starting the seeds in 1.5 inch rockwool cubes and it was a disaster, took forever to get the roots to reach the solution, once they did reach the solution they took off ok but had pH issues which caused zinc...

    GR's Flow and Grow 4, plant Gorilla Cookies!!!!!

    Yesterday I changed out the rez, pumped out the old rez, washed the rez good with Clorox and refilled with 30 gallons of nutrient mix that I made up three days in advance. This rez had been in use for 16 days, I added 3 gallons on the 7th day and 14th day and adjusted the nutrients. When I...

    GR's Flow and Grow 4, plant Gorilla Cookies!!!!!

    I believe the plants are recovering from the zinc deficiency. But I think the damage is done, slow growth, bleaching, but not seeing any root damage. Being auto's I think that they will not produce as they should. Pulled the plants from the tent on Tuesday and tied them down. These two are...

    GR's Flow and Grow 4, plant Gorilla Cookies!!!!!

    Duh! You think I could use 1/2 tap and 1/2 RO. Or do fir a flush with tap and follow that with pH'ed RO with enough cal/mag plus to bring the ppm to around 150.
