Hey all, so my girls are half way into week 5 (snocap, ak-48, and unkown that was supposed to be skunk #1, but isnt)about a week and a half ago my rez cracked and I have had to use a 15 gal bucket to flood my table. Table is 4 x 4 and full of hydroton. 15 girls in a 1in square rockwool and 6in net pot. I'm using FF cuz I still have some from dirt grows and my rez temps ride between 65-70. PPM this week I have at 1250 with about a teaspoon of epsom salt per gal. Im changing the buckets every 4th day with another 15g bucket that bubbles for at least a day in advance. I add nutes 4-5 hours prior to moving it under the table and doing the final adjusting of the ph. This has been working well till 2 nights ago the rez was at 5.0. So I put the new one in at 5.5 as i thought 5.8 is to big a jump. Hours later I come back to check and the ph is now back down to 5.2, crap so i adjust up to 5.6 this time. All seems stable while in the bucket. BUt as soon as it floods once, the ph is on the move down. I flood 1hr on 2hours off. 4 airstones on two pumps for aeration. TOnight the bucket was at 4.8. Something in my table seems like it is throwing the PH, but the are no tapes, glues, or foriegn objects of any kind that i know of or can see. I am wondering if a root condintion can cause this? ANy insight would be appreciated. Sry long post.
