Started from the bottom now I’m… progressing

Back then I used Ionic nutrients veg and bloom formulas with tap water and pH down. If ya just follow the manufacturer suggested feeding and tweak it from there your usually going to be successful.
The tubs I just syphon off the fluid once a month to keep things fresh. Top off with fresh water as needed and feed them once a week.
 
Soo… the aquarium chiller was getting clogged w/nutes so I switched back to buckets IN the tote running cold water that is clean so no malfunction. F’n learning curve is a ***** even WITH research. Hang in there my patriots, updates to come! 💪🇺🇸

Soooo… that operation officially failed. I’m reassessing my game plan for next batch I’ll keep ya posted. Honestly not sure where I went wrong other than maybe the aquarium chiller did too good of a job and water was too cold for nutrient uptake… any hydro growers want to confirm or deny this theory?
 
That sucks! Ya fail sometimes. It happens. If your sticking with hydro you'll get it eventually. Ya just gotta apply the basics and good environment. Little more tricky with all that metering n monitoring.
There's an alternative to hydro which is close to the same control and speed of hydro...coco or peat are black slates to start with. Coco is more involved than the peat but a very good medium. Peat is awesome as well with Jack's nutrients and no metering.
I'm sure you'll find your way. Just gotta keep plugging away at it.

Yes the plants I grew in peat mixed with pearlite with seabird guano and worm castings turned out great., Jacks went great with it too!
