SkywalkerOG RDWC

These girls are 4 weeks old today. Iím feeding at 450ppm 5.6-5.8 ph. Works out to about 1.75g per gallon of Maxibloom.

Theyíre starting to show a bit of over nute not sure if I should cut back or not as my Rez ppm is stable and not climbing. Theyíre under a 600w air cooled hps. The fan is a hyper fan 6Ē I believe 315cfm and keeps temps at about 72f and around 30-45% humidity .

4x4 secret jarden ds120, RDWC with 5g buckets and a 30g Rez. I have each bucket set up as a waterfall with air stones in each bucket powered by a 4 outlet aquarium pump. Rez temps about 66-68.

They just got their first Rez change on the weekend. Iím using tap water with 250ppm and about 8.5ph. Not ideal and Iím working on r/o eventually. I think my problem was more my air pump.

It has an adjustable dial on it and I donít know if I bumped it or it vibrated closed but it was almost putting no air out. So I made sure it will never self adjust again.

Last night after no improvement after the Rez change I pulled 5g of Nutes out and added 5g of r/o that I had kicking around. Dropped my ppm from 450 to about 350-400. I have a blue lab truncheon so itís not exact I guess. Hopefully I see improvement in the next 24h.

This is my first real attempt at dwc and Iím absolutely astounded by growth speed. I will never, ever touch pro mix or coco again. Except for moms maybe.

Also I’m using a 30g tote for a Rez, it’s outside of the tent.

Cool set up. I did 4 in a 4x4 tent before, it got thick so now I usually do 2 with a 5-week veg.

I know how you feel, now when I grow in soil it is like watching a cactus grow. I keep thinking something is wrong then I realize I am used to DWC.

Oh boy. I was planning on a 6 week veg this should get interesting. The tent came with a screen I might have to bust that out. I like being able to lift the lids and check on the roots though.

I topped three of them last night. One has been topped and defoliated once, itís looking like thereís 10 tops on it hehe.

Your issue is more of your tap water. 250 ppm is too high for a proper assimilation or homogenous mix nutrient profile. Too many minerals in that tap water. Competing minerals with each other will cause deficiencies with others or lock up when combined. 90 ppm is more of an exceptable level for water.
