    12 ml.micro 6ml. bloom & 3ml. calmag to 1 gal. of my tap water that is 50 ppm. right now I'm at 750 total ppm. scottyballs uses floranova bloom only to get similar results I really like mixing fewer ingredients when I feed

    I'll give this a shot. I just tested my RO water system. The tap water before RO was around 210-215ppm, Its now 2ppm

    sounds good I strongly urge when you get time to look up scottyballs g13 Pineapple Express start to finish thread there is some good stuff in it if you're doing dwc/waterfarm type grows it's an old thread but countless people have successfully used his guidelines

    when I fire the second tent it's gonna be loosely based on scottyballs concept except I'm running a led but the concept is gonna be the same

    I wish I had known about these water farms before I started. The price is really good. I think I spent that much on just the pump. Essentially the home built system I made does the same thing, except it doesnt have that chamber system. I do have a gap between my water line and the bottom the net pots tho.

    Day 32
    7-16-2017 : 8:00pm

    5.0 Gallons
    air temp: 75f
    water temp: 68f
    ppm: 780
    ph: 5.71

    Notes:
    - Created new res with RO water, added cal/mag + nutrients + h2o2
    - used lucas formula for nutrients so only micro/bloom was used
    - 15ml of h2o2 35%
    - top drip is going to each plant at 2gph

    Will add pictures tomorrow

    Well I was gonna say ppm was high then noticed it's also higher then yest. Which also makes me think maybe they are a bit high? Nutrient lock out?

    this is galaxy hydros recommended hanging heights. too powerful of light will stunt growth and could burn/bleach leaves. im on first grow as well, and experienced almost no growth for first 2-3 weeks until i raised the light to the top of tent then they started blowing up
    Hanging Height and Lighting Time
    Germination Stage: 48-56 inch, 16-18 hrs.

    Vegetative Stage: 40-48 inch, 12-16 hrs.

    Flowering Stage: 24-40 inch, 10-12 hrs

    Yea it can be hard with the evolution of LED there is a lot of mixed info out there. If you have a high powered LED you don't want them close.

    yeah LEDs differ greatly from company to company depending on type of diode, how hard they're driven etc. best bet is always check with manufacturer

    Well the paper that came with my lights said 14 to 24 inches. I raised then up anyways.

    I'm leaning towards it not being light burned because it's not the top of my leaves that are yellowing

    Ppm actually didn't raise, when I posted originally I had mixed the nutrients up and gave 2:1 micro to bloom. Lucas formula is bloom to micro. I made a new res but was already past edit on forums.

    They drank about 30ppm over night

    is it the older growth that's yellowing? sometimes it's the ones that've been exposed longer... anyways i'm still learning too but if u can always drop it down if u see too much stretch. i'd also recommend a liquid ph test kit if you don't have one.. i was using a cheap yellow ph meter off amazon for awhile and when i double checked against a liquid kit it was way off despite just being calibrated so idk

    No I don't think anyone was saying the yellowing was caused from the lights. It's what appears to be n deficient . Most likely from when you had it in no nutrient
