Since retiredoldguy was my go to man and he is gone,
Did I do something wrong ? Peeps here usually help ya out in a few hours. ‽‽???
Sorry, I have only done DWC a few times. And mostly on basil, strawberry and cilantro. I am not confident on any advise from personal experience.
I would say at a glance you need some more nitrogen. I would foliar feed ammonia or milk. The veining under the general light green (needs n) appearance is probably calcium or magnesium deficiency if I had to treat it as mine. Maybe some epsomes salt to the reservoir. The calcium could be foliar fed w the milk to keep the ingredients out of the res. That’s what I would do.
You can find him on ILGM, I have chatted w him and Currdogg both there. That place is like a freeway in the big city. The traffic there is mind boggling. I don’t know quite where to pull out into threads. Otherwise it’s formatted exactly the same as this forum.
When is the last time you’ve changed your res water?, maybe change water, drop pH to optimal range for aquaponics, trim off dead/dying growth.
Has been recent on the change. Like noddykitty said think I’ll up my cal mag first
All I can do for the pH is make it yellow. haha
@Rusty increase your calcium and magnesium. You also need to up your potassium a bit.
What happened to retiredoldguy?
@jjress he got into it with someone and got silent and we haven’t heard from him
I don’t know sorry…
Thanks my friend…
I have always used calmag but I will Up it… Is there a quick quick fix for or my potassium potassium. Not much in that area here in Mississippi
@Rusty foliar feed with some liquid kelp and molasses. Even some aloe vera water if you can find or make it.
@Daddy1971 oh alright nothing to crazy so that’s good.
Put cal mag to them and the claw turned loose. Jumped 2 in. in just 2 days. Much thanks
Can you give me a brand name or what to look for if I am needing potassium?? ( for my hydro system)
@Rusty what brand are you currently using? It’s likely you just need to increase your feed.
As far as brands I would suggest I only grow organic these days and there are only three brands I know of that are (and have used) good for dwc hydro. FOOP, General Organics, and Earth Juice. Blue Planet looks like it might be a good line to check out too but I haven’t ever used them yet.
As far as chemical salt nutrients I haven’t used a lot of them aside from advanced nutrients and general hydroponics.
I use General Hydrophonics flora group with cal mag and a Terpinator.
@Rusty general hydroponics is a decent brand with plenty of available nutrients. Just need to increase your feed a bit with them for that extra potassium.
