Hydro question...
    #4026909 - 04/07/05 05:15 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)


I am running a DWC system for tomatoes.  :cool:

I moved it from a clear bucket (dumb, I know), and the roots had algae growth on them.  I purchased white 5 gallon buckets, and made those into my system.

I brewed a new nutrient solution, FloraNova, at 700 ppm.  I then washed the roots gently to remove most of the algae, a lot of the roots were still brownish.

Now they still seem to be brown, and there is also shit floating in the water.  It has been a couple days and it seems a lot of sediment or something settles on the bottom.  It is a really thin layer, could it be dead algae since I cut off the light source?

Thanks!  :crazy2:

it probably is just dead shit. Do you use peroxide in your system?

I would judge by how your tomatoes are looking...I've seen a few people grow great crops even though their roots were tinged brown, myself included.
