Somewhere, there is something incredible waiting to be confused for aliens.
wow what an amazing thread hiesenberg, i was told to come read this from another thread, im a dwc grower,who had his first experience with pythium last grow!! im now doing a RDWC grow, i have purchased great white as i was planning on running a bennie enviroment in my res/nutes, after a bit of reading i see that in rdwc systems its best to apply these powders of great white direct to the roots? my seedling are only 12 days old and are in rockwool, they have roots showing but i dont know if these are to young for application of stuff to the roots??
there going into drip fed 220mm net pots filled with hydroton. i know from reading that these rocks do not give the bennies a ho,e to breed as there not porus enough, and for my next run il be using lava rock as they give the BB a home,
i think il try making the tea, with the great white, im in the uk so some of the stuff you mention is hard to get,
can you make a suggestion on the whole application to roots method if its worth it? or if im best just adding the tea to my res as a way to prevebt any build up of bad bacteria, much thanks for this amazing thread and all your replys mate!
hydroton works just fine as a home for the bennies. as for your great white, brew a tea with that using the instructions on page 1. you could also mix some distilled water and great white in a spray bottle and spray it on the roots if they arent long enough to touch water. although it would be better to brew the tea, and it will make it even more effective. add the tea brew into your system, and pour some thru each netcup. this will inoculate each plant site and its roots at the crown. if you have a healthy set of bennies in your system, it will help keep it disease free. you'll have to top up with new tea every few days though. good luck!
Yes I am in the US. Many of the ingredients come from General Hydroponics or Botanicare, so if you know of any UK distributors that sell those lines, you might find what you are looking for. Just brew up some great white and molasses. If you can't get the aquashield, ZHO, Sub-M, Sub-B, Ancient Forest, Mycogrow, etc. then just use what you have in it's place. Without the Ancient Forest you won't get the massive diversity useful for disease fighting, but it doesn't sound like you are fighting slime. If you just use it as a preventative tea it will hopefully keep the slime away. Cheers and good luck. Make sure you brew for 48 hours.
Can someone please help me out here??? I am begging for help. I am a nOOb to DWC growing. I did a res change 2 days ago and these is how they look right now. Is there hope or should I cull it? Is there anything I could immediately? Please PM if you can help a DWC nOOb.... Thanks
