Heres the kicker of my specific situation. Even though it doesnt seem like my water levels are dropping (wich may be due to not to many roots at the water yet, but im going to swap the water anyways) the 7 plants i was worried about and going to replace actually have excellent growth the last 2 days and i mean they have dbld in size. These are today
post up your nute regimen again plz if you haven't already

well it all comes down to
1. light
2. root zone
3. enviorement
by no mean i suggest anyone to give high ec , ur ranges are like foolproof unless grower special type of idiot u cant kill/overfeed plants
but if u have enough lights/temp/hum/co2 their metabolizm gets boosted so u can raise the nutes to meet the demand
how much does your EC drop in 1 day? just curious.

do u have fan blowing directly to them ? the weird growth is probably cuz they are in stress but good sign is that they are growing

0 , i have no top off water level drops a lot (17 gall in 2 days at this stage ) , ph stays same
but my previous runs when i had top off with 3 stage about 80-100 a day BUT after 2 days ppm will drop to like 40-50 then 20 so stopped adding ro so i wont dilute nutes

you sure they aren't drinking? growing that much in a few days, they should be drinking.

maybe you don't need to flush after all? have you started it yet or still waiting on RO water?

I havent started the flushing yet. I lowered over a 2 days leriod as advised by you a few days ago. Got it down to .55 ec and 290 ppm. Over the last 3 days its rose to .62 ec and 304 ppm but also dropped ec and plm for a day as well.

Thats what my thoughts were to about the drinking, im kind of thinking they are just at a very very low amount that i cant tell in a day or 2 yet. They ALL still dont have massive amounts of roots in thw water yet so that could be why?

Also note that the roots on the ones that do have a decent amount and ok amount touching the water are stiff like. When i oull the lid up they stick out sideways somewhat rather than sluggish and downward.

I have my 2nd ro barrel filling now (needed to fill them anyways) but was thinking maybe waiting another day to flush them? What i did to at this point, this.morning was took my return 90 from the chiller to the rez and turned it down to the water till it was JUST touching water. This way i have something forsure marked to watch.

Every plant has significant new growth and all the new growth is good in color, old leaves keep getting worse and worse though. Stalks are stiff as can be, leaf texture feels good and leaf stems are stiff but pliable

i would do 1 of 2 things:
24 hr flush (2nd)

add RO until you get to 0.25EC (1st) see if that gets them eating first. you'll know that within 12 to 24 hrs. if not, then the flush.

can you post up what nutes and additives?

only look at new growth too. as long as that is OK, you are doing fine.

seems ok to me. so the v1 and v2 just at a 1:1 ratio basically for all of veg. simple enough.

drop you EC in half and let's see what happens 12 to 18 hrs from now

Does it say dosage for hydroponic ? I never used it so no idea if its ok to use in hydro. U sure it has nothing organic right ?
Everyone here where im at that runs dwc and has been along time runs this line. ALOT of big time growers are moving over to it from AN, CES, and a few others. Its specifically for DWC but can be used for coco just as well. Nothing organic forsure
