I didn't think schultz made hydro ferts.
Hydro ferts contain a lot of trace minerals and things that the plant won't get in a hydro system that it would have gotten in dirt. So may want to verify that your using the right ferts.

Gen. Hydro, Dyna series, many more.
here's a couple of links:

Hey Yogidc, I've got to tell you man, I've never done a DWC or "Bubbler" grow. I specialize in drip, NFT, or Ebb and Flow but not DWC.

I have some sort of an aversion to DWC. I'm not sure what it is other than I just don't trust it.

Ebb and Flow is the most maintenance free and NFT is the simplest to set up. The good thing is you can convert to Ebb and Flow with no problem from a DWC if the plant is still small enough.

Sorry man. Other than the advice to move up to ebb and flow, I don't know enough about DWC to fill a thimble.

astra knows some DWC if I remember correctly. Give him a try.

Sorry man.

Whats up yogi dc. Bummer about the males but we all get them. What do you think caused the HERMIES? :eek: Do ya have any light leaks?

if everything is going fine and then wham, ya get hermies............ this is usually caused by a sudden trauma or massive shock to the plant. i find that soil is more forgiving then any kind of hydro grows in this aspect. scrap the hermies and the males. unless you want seeded bud which might not be a bad idea as you only have 4 plants. chose which male you wanna keep and go fer 3 and get some nice seed.


i just noticed sumthing - sweettooth is a pain to grow, i have grown spice of life's breeder steve's sweettooth and it hermied, stunted, was under/over ferts several times and just an all around pain and then ya got papaya which is almost as bad.

the best sweettooth i grew was clones from an older 14 month old clone mother that was a clone of a 8 month old mom. i did not seem to have any problems with it.

well i think that the other two hermie because it was not getting enough light in the beginnig of its life. two taller plants one which became male block light from it for a while but once i cut it out it got more light and then hermie.

Theses pics are of a male that i cut out, troublemaker that is three weeks old and a female sweet tooth that is 6 weeks old and two weeks into flowering. I was wondering if i breed troublemaker with sweet tooth to get sweet trouble, or papaya and master kush to get master papaya?
