This thread has a 1 star rating lol. Its not that bad bht it could use some pics or progress report from the OP.

LOL at soil out doing hydro. Only one way that happens... human error

You've only just found the title of the thread funny after posting here for how ever long.
Dont be so quick to judge as everyone else who has grown this cut in hydro says the same thing, that it seems to take longer to get blooming. I also did specifically say at the start that this is my 1st ever hydro or DWC grow so there's gonna be some learning curves. I imagine you was the best from the get go. I already grow top shelf and have been for awhile, go look at my albums and Jedi's jungle thread. Ive only seeing vegging plants in your albums so can't comment on your fem seeds lol

I can't upload pics from my phone since they changed things on the site a few months back, so only put the links up.

Here's my blueberry gum in DWC, my first time. Lol

This is the GSC in soil

GSC in DWC, just a bit behind bit all is fine.

I don't know what is typical, but my soil plants always finish later than the soil growers. Same exact cut, they say 60 days, it takes me 70. Every time.

I agree, it doesn't seem to be the logical conclusion, you would think they hydro would finish faster. So I've always wondered if it was the co2, (I'm sealed, co2) But even then, I would think it would finish faster.

But at least a dozen cuts, exact same cut, I'm consistently 10 days behind the soil guys. I don't know what it is.

I'll upload some pics of the roots, I need some help though to take the picture as I hold up the pot. My roots are discolored a bit unfortunately. To start I thought I was getting root rot, but its actually the enzymes staining them, which is common.
The GSC roots in the DWC is like rope lol
Do any of you DWC growers do a maintenance flush ever with pure water mid veg or bloom to clean root zone. I always like to flush my soil plants every few weeks or so and was gonna do the same by cleaning out the DWC buckets and leaving them in plain PH adjusted water (5.8) for a day with the air stone on. Then starting with half strength nutes, building them back up over a week or so.

Flushing soil is good because you get rid of salt buildup/un used nutrients hanging around.

Well in Hydro we do water changes which gets rid of that stuff. So plain water is unnecessary unless they are burnt from high EC/TDS

Your bubblegum is looking sweet! And the GSC too. It's quite different from the cut I got. But I think it will yield nice!

So the hydro plants haven't caught up yet? What's your rez temp? You sure you don't have some slower hydro growth from Brown roots? Could be stained. Or just low on O2.

Twice as much O2 @ 60F than 80F.

I use a crap load of air. In fact I need to get one big compressor like they use in Aquarium stores. Belt drive.
I have one ECO Air 3 commercial for every 50 Gallons. And they are loud.

Niceone mate, that makes sense. I'll just continue to do what im doing and just clean the tank out and do a change every week or two.
Yeah there looking sweet for sure, im really impressed with the results so far. The thread title seems like im struggling, but as u can see there looking fine. I also think for my first DWC grow im doing well and will be able to really get my teeth into the technique.
The B gum looks like shell pull some decent weight. The GSC isn't the best yielder individually but its ok over a meter squared as she doesn't get very wide and has nice columns of bud along the branches giving decent colas and 2nd nugs. She has stretched alot in DWC, but the branches are thick with lots of sites, so hopefully shell give me more than in soil.
My EC meter has recently packed up so I can't give u my nute temps. I know from experience that im not too high. My PH is fine and as you can see they look healthy. I just think its either this strain or too high nitrate levels to start delaying them a bit blooming. Either way there doing fine and its all a learning curve when trying new skills
Peace

Yeah all your plants look good for sure.

Just watch temps. As the root system in DWC grows so does there need for O2.

I have had slow growing plants with tan roots for weeks. And then
all of a sudden its over.

I have killed lots of plants over the years so you don't have too!!

When you feed a balanced nute profile, start with r/o water, maintain a full pH cycle using only nutrients and top off with r/o water, you can run a res for at least three months without changing or causing any buildup/issues.
