    I have a drain and fill set up. I am watering only 2x now in flower stage but it looks like over watering. Should I actually let the roots dry out before feedings? I know its a dumb question but im lost on what else to do to get her healthy again.

    In Hydrotons and only watering 2 times a day? Hydrotons are usually used with a drip system or flood system that is timed to have several cycles through the day. The leaf tip burn you see is possibily from feeding a strong solution, maybe try a weaker solution more often. Looks like you could use a little calcium or mag. also.

    They look hungry.

    thanks. I added a gallon of water to the res to cut the strength. I guess Ill see how that goes. Maybe do a flush and see if this dilution does not seem to help. Thanks

    It is on a timer to flood the top container. I have been getting mixed answers though on how to get her healthy again. Some people say that the nutrients are too high, others say that they are too low. I weakend then strength the other morning and I notice that more of the leafs are getting brown tips and curling. Also I notice some of the leafs are getting light in color however the veins are green. I did add espon salt to the res originally to add some mag. I am at a loss on what to do. Should I empty the res completely and just run a day or two with plain water?

    You may have just answered your own question. If leaves are doing what you say that means it is probably nute burn. Just use a ppm pen so you can see the strength of solution and you will know if too high or not.
