wow!

I left my seedlings in the solo cup seed starter for way too long and the roots were looking like that, thick, but not as nearly as long.

Thank you for the very detailed walk through. I can see putting this to use at some point.

D9, I think you are familiar with the "roughneck" brand of storage totes. Wider than they are tall. If one were to use the 3 gallon as a top container and the 10 gallon as a bottom container, would you recommend a larger tailpiece than the traditional sink model, 6" x 1.5"?

yep, anything over 2 gals should have a 2" up to about 5 gals. then a 3" to about 10 gals. my friends growing outdoors in 20 gals are using 4" tailpieces.

Aquashield or Baquacil are some brand names. 16.95 a gal at pool supply places.

this green cleaner: https://www.arbico-organics.com/prod...l/mite-control.

we wrap masking tape around the stem before the tanglefoot.

another thing that i did not mention that i think is real important for stopping mites and other crawling, wingless pests is that i don't tolerate flying bugs of any kind. i think most of us have seen that picture of 5 or 6 broad mites riding around on an aphid.

co2 above about 2200 ppm closes stomata and shuts down respiration but the plants can tolerate it for short periods of time with no ill effect.

so about once a month i have been opening up a cylinder in the flower rooms and running the ppm up over 10,000 ppm. it pegs the monitors and my handheld co2 meter.

this kills most but not all invertebrate life in the room. just making it more difficult for pests to proliferate.
i have not been able to find any results of testing of buds treated with green cleaner.do you have any info on it?the manufacturer says can be used in flower and am curious.

that's probably because it doesn't show up on test. or they are not testing for it.

Ever since Delta advised me to blow out the return lines with a pump I haven't had a flood since. Thanks again for the advice Delta!! PPK is so kick ass and plants are thriving, but I can't get my PH to go under 6.3. I'm using Plagron A&B and everything has been pretty stable(2.0 EC and 6.3 PH) for the last four days. Volume tank is 1.4 EC and 5.5 PH. I was inputting a lower EC into the volume tank because I never have fed 2.0 EC(coco grower) before and thought that was high. Plants are super green and there are no tip burns. Any advice on how to get my PH down?

does anyone else get particles in the solution in the main tanks?in the last two weeks both my flower and veg float valves have clogged.the two 40 gallon barrels in my flower were just drained and they have it already 3 weeks later.i am using the water from my dehumidifier in the flower room and well water in the veg room.same problem in both.i am using jacks hydro and cal nit and am mixing jacks first then the cal .the water from dehumidifier tests to 5.4 ph and just above 0 conductivity.my well water tests to 0.6 e.c around 310ppm and ph of 7.5.i use ph down in veg to get water around 5.8.everything has been growing nice but i leave the grow for up to a week at a time and if the solution isnt getting refilled then as the level in the system goes down my ph and ec go up causing some leaf yellowing.all from the float valve clogging.has anyone used a water filter between the res and the float res?
