Where did all those plants come from?

Hey, I take no credit for that tea recipe. That all goes to Heisenberg: DWC Root Slime Cure aka How to Breed Beneficial Microbes. I just use it and know it works wonders!!

As far as I am concerned, there is a HUGE misconception about changing out your reservoir weekly. If you keep everything in check, and don't run into any major issues, you should be able to run the same res for just about the entire grow TBH! When we are growing our style, DWC, water is our medium! People don't go and change out their soil several times during a grow now do they? Why on earth should we have to do the same when using water as our medium? I have grown several successful nft grows without changing my res once during flower. I used to like to change my res when going from veg to flower if in the same system, but now that I am using AN 3-part base, it is the same mixture regardless except for extras, so I just keep it going without a flush.
Now, as I said, you must make sure you keep everything in check. If you aren't seeing your res nutrient values dropping and PH rising as it should, then you must be pro-active and keep on top of it!
It basically comes down to using some common sense. Learn to read your plants and figure out what they need, instead of just throwing stuff at them!

I am still having trouble reading the indoor girl. The outdoor girrls are easier for me. I will get there in time. I should have tried an easier indoor Kush strain.

Hey Slanty - what pH does the tea run? What pH range do you keep in your res?

Hang in there Mo! You can do it!
I am not sure what the PH of the tea works out to be after I brew it. I have never checked it tbh. I just add it to my res and top up with water to the proper levels. I usually only top up my nutes every 2nd watering, to let them fluctuate a bit. I also try to keep my res in the 5.7-6.2 ish range. Once it gets up to 6.2, I drop it again. I was just in there this morning, and my plants look better now than they have in the past month!

Hey Slanty - How much tea do you add to your res? Is it by ppm or by ml/L?
