Hey all,
After completing a couple of mostly successful soil grows, my tendency to experiment and try new things has got me wanting to do a DWC grow. My intention is to run two 5 gal. buckets with a top off tank operated by float valves. I'm in the process of collecting all the equipment to get me started.

Question is, I have the Fox Farm trio on hand, and the Tiger Bloom specifically says for soil or hydro but the other two don't say that I have been able to find. I'm almost sure I can use them but I'm just looking for some conformation and a feeding schedule designed for autoflower.

If anyone has a good one, or could direct me to post that would help, I would greatly appreciate it.

The general rule of thumb start your nutes at 50% of the manufactures recommendation max. I think if they are salt based nutrients they should be fine but I've never used that brand. DWC is really cool in my opinion, when its going well the size and growth rate of the plant is amazing BUT it is not very forgiving. Since you have a couple grows under your belt you are better off than I was and will already have an understanding of reading the plant. There does not seem to be a lot of hydro/dwc type growers on here other than coco. But there are some and they are very helpful.

Im on my second run RDWC and my first DWC. I use General Hydroponics nutes. GH has a feed chart generator that may help ya out. I would suggest that you try use one manufacturers nute line and feed charts. Mixing different lines can cause lock outs. I'm using GH Flora series along with GH's supplements except for their Tea. At the moment im following GH's feed chart at recommended strength for RDWC. So far so good but they are still in the Seedling stage.
