  • Well, we're still working on things and I imagine we'll see some bugs, some breaking, and things that need to get fixed. We'll start on the most critical things first and work our way down. We're still installing add-on's and squaring away some licensing stuff, but feel free to browse the board and we'll update everyone on when things are added, restored, or otherwise changed.

    Thanks. Will do. Made sure to get stones that produce the tiniest bubbles so there's minimal turbulence. Cheers.

    I understand that runnin bennies will allow for higher temps, and that even these will benefit f/ better O2 levels. And the things I did wrong w/ the 1st grow were all validly wrong. Alas, I killed my 1st grow w/ ignorance...not sure too much love is a thing, but I've gotten better w/ leavin...

    Apologies Frenjamin for posting again, but feel I gotta better respond to baseadinho. I'm pretty sure that a major contribution to the growth of my slime, and to the probable lockout I was seeing, was a serious lack of O2. Recommended that the absolute minimum air for DWC is 1 Watt per gallon...

    The shells had 2 parts this time, a hard casing and a skin. That's what was keepin the cotyledon f/ unfolding and it just pulled off. Wonder if soaking had anything to do w/ it. The other leafs are greening. Temps 71.5 F and nutes 215 PPM. So this 5 gal seedling res needs cooling 2x/day. Might...

    Cotyledon unfurled on 1 today and showing tiny 1st leaves unusual to me, kinda brown and spotty. Other still tryin to unfold these. Inspired by Frenjamin's messy res/dirty water grows to look into organics, and talkin w/ my wife always helps me consolidate what's swimmin in my head. Bottom line...

    Girls are sprouting in a tie, at 3/4" now. Temps climbed overnight to 72 F so chillin w/ ice bottle. Nute solut steady at 215 PPM. Did some more micro-dosing w/ Recharge, this time at 1/2 strength, only around the germ plugs. One of the seedlings was pretty severely breached but gave me a look...

    Just re-read your whole thread more carefully and best thing about it for me is all the experimenting you're doin and how you sorta throw the book/conventions out the window. Seems like the way to really learn this stuff for the long haul. Good to have in the back of my mind while I get all anal...

    Not sure why or how but temps are at 68.5 F w/o chillin all day. Partly due maybe to only blue lights @ 24" and no doubt the black paint job helped, but figured the 5W air pump/4 stones woulda raised them. Had put summa the 1/4 Recharge around the plugs (20 drops each) chased w/ sum res water...

    Girls are in the incubator/seedling res after 52 hours in a tupperware on the wifi router. They're almost 2 days ahead of last time so the method seems good even tho I did a 12-hour pre-soak, or maybe b/c of it? Taking steps to try to prevent damping off in case that's what happened last time...

    Seeds are already sprouting 36 hours in from bein dropped into 12-hour pre-soak. Glad for that as I kinda messed up the Ronin germ method wh/ doesn't pre-soak but soaks the plug first 12 hours. The heat f/ the router really seems to have helped. Seedling res is set up. All black and well...

    Water aeration formula required for DWC for us (not necessary for lettuce for example) is at least 1 watt/gallon, and I was only supplying 3 watts for 10 gallons. (I had a lotta contributing factors to slime growth. I also didn't begin the Hydroguard treatment immediately, so there was an early...

    Well 2 things you can correct me on. First is that I figured I'd never put molasses in the res. It's only to go into the brewing tea to feed the blooming microbe biome before that gets put in. And it's only about a tablespoon/gallon of tea. As for runnin sterile, seems to me like that's a bit of...

    We moved our daughter into school yesterday. Well I'm glad for your help there so thx. Think you just sorta dropped "molasses" there and that had me scramblin to know more. Got our blackstrap yesterday. And cuz I neglected to fully answer baseadinho's Q, my other contributing factor (wh/...

    Only just realized my mistake that led to the slime. My drip rings were clear plastic, and had in them some gunk wh/ I mistook for root matter but that was too early to have occurred. I was growing slime in my drip rings directly under the lights. Okay, have all black tubing. I'll be...

    Check. I revisited their site and they advise to apply it as a flush w/o nutes, and that if you go further, as in top off w/ tea every 5-7 days, do so w/ maybe half the usual nute level before and behind it. Their recommended dose is 1:10, but other reading I've done says use as little as a cup...

    I have theories but when buyin another air stone for makin tea, I was lookin at all the beautiful black hose. Then I realized I was circulating my drip water thru clear plastic rings under light. And I also noticed crap in those rings. I took it for root material but no way--it was too early for...
