    Try to get your PH down a little. (I keep mine at 5.7) ..... 6.2 is at the high end for hydro.

    First of all, you shouldn't have the mister's working 24 hrs a day, the roots need some time to dry out. 15 min every 3-4 hrs. Plus the rockwool holds way to much water and you'll get root rot. Try rapid rooters or even lava rocks if you wanna go cheap. Hope that helps.

    That foam will not hold the root mass well enough to support your plant hydroton rocks are cheap.
