Thanks growmie, I haven’t figured out how to put that link in a topic yet​:person_facepalming:. PlayStation 3 is Hi-Tech as I get :rofl::rofl::rofl:


Sorry about the pic. These should be better.


What are you feeding it?


GhHydroponics flora series. Calmag, rapid root, armor si, floralicious

But i have at a very low stength at moment because i thought i was burning them. At moment ppm is 300s and ec is .7

I also for about 2 hours probably had in a 4ph because i bought a water chiller, was running it thru and i noticed my ph was spiking( was reading 9-10) so i panicked and hit it with phdown, and kept adding because i thought the chiller was somehow filtering it back in at high ph… was my damn ph reader!! So ya that happened

Stuff happens :grinning:. I’m not a dwc guy just seen that part :person_facepalming:. Sorry pal… @OGIncognito hey growmie will you call the dwc troops and help this growmie out? Thanks in advance

Appreciate the tag Grow Bro, @Bobbycro420 your EC should be in the 1.8-2.0 range and PH 5.8-6.2. What’s the reservoir nutrient temps? I would recommend adding a root innoculant like Hydroguard or Southern Ag. Temps above 70 can lead to pythium (root rot) can you post a few pics of the roots? @Retiredoldguy got any pointers or suggestions :love_you_gesture:

Thanks guys. Since ive gotten the water chiller ive been able to keep at 68 and under. Here are the roots


Also the roots are not slimey and dont smell

The chillers a nice addition, get the PH around 5.8-6.0 and up the nutrients to 1.8-2.0 and you should see a difference. Those older damaged leaves won’t recover and would strip all growth below the 3rd node :love_you_gesture:

Ok cool.i just pruned off the yellowing leaves. Will fix that and do an update. Thank you i appreciate it!!


Well, i did what you recommended and they bounced back over night! Thank you very much!!!


You might want to invest in some HydroGuard. It could be the lighting, but those roots look a bit darker than they should and might be afflicted with something. HydroGuard is cheap insurance against root rot and helps negate the need for a chiller. I run my RDWC grow without a chiller and my roots are bright white and full with HydroGuard. Also, I run my TDS at 1200ppm (using Jack’s 123 according to their feeding schedule). 300 is way low and is the most likely reason for the leaves showing a nutrient deficiency.

Thank you. I will look into the hydro guard. Honestly it was that low because i thought i had over nuked the 2 i had before in there(they eventually died) ,but i think it was really from root rot because this is before i had the chiller. So, i went into it thinking i should dilute it a bit and see what happens. Trial and error… im new to hydroponics. Thanks for all the help everyone!!!
