    Root rot HELP ME!!!!!(RDWC)

    We are aware of H202. I don't think it is quite as effective as Sodium Hypochlorite after testing several options.

    Root rot HELP ME!!!!!(RDWC)

    This is absolutely incredible, 3 days since my last post and I would say this is quite the improvement. This growth is awesome! Roots have officially taken off and plants are growing fast!

    Root rot HELP ME!!!!!(RDWC)

    I had the start of root rot on 3 of my plants in a Rdwc System. I used @Wastei calculator and got my plants back. First time I used a dose that was roughly 6 ppm. My plants reacted at about 3 days apart and began to wilt. The two small ones bounced back as the big one was starting to wilt. I...

    Bleach instead of H2o2

    Alright I wanted to give an update, as sad as my plants had been, I noticed bright white roots shooting out of the bottom of the net pots about 4 days ago. The new roots were doubling in size every day, plants began getting healthier and perked back up. Keep in mind I never laid off of the...

    Bleach instead of H2o2

    That doesn't explain why a way smaller amount than you described is causing this, the roots were never bad and the plant was never in this state until bleach was added as an alternative to beneficial bacteria

    Bleach instead of H2o2

    Forgot to reply to your post in the one I just posted but I am stumped here and am looking for a solution so I can use bleach because it seems like it would be a better solution than beneficial bacteria that I've used

    Bleach instead of H2o2

    So all plants bounced back and then 4 days ago I dosed 1.5ml into my 35 gal res to see how they reacted and this time my big plant (which was uneffected by the big dose may have gotten to a point of no return as my smaller plants are doing just fine (other than minor yellowing of some leaves)...

    Bleach instead of H2o2

    Just out of curiosity what is your dose? I would think once the system is sterilized it would take longer than 3-4 days but I guess bacteria can hit fast

    Bleach instead of H2o2

    I did add it to my control res, I did 3ml three times and then 1ml to equal 10, however I did not wait but 30 seconds between dosing. At 400 gallon ls per hour on my recirculating pump, my system should do a full cycle every 5 minutes. I'm thinking my control became too strong and as it fed out...

    Bleach instead of H2o2

    Plants are beginning to bounce back, it has been 19 hours and parts of my two plants that were wilting are picking back up. My one larger plant never had a single negative effect from the bleach. Thinking either this particular strain got stressed from it, or 6 drops per gallon was a bit on the...

    Bleach instead of H2o2

    I appreciate it, I will try that calculator once I get things squared away. Also I am using 6% and it is regular unscented bleach as described by a few people in this forum. Fatman recommended 6-8 drops per gallon, so conversion calculator states that 20 drops = 1ml. 35 gal x 6 (drops) = 210...

    Bleach instead of H2o2

    Just ran 10ml of bleach in my system of 35 gallons, it's only been 2 hours and two of my plants are wilting fairly badly? Is this somewhat normal / will resolve itself, or do I need to flush the system?
