    Question on Nutrient strength.

    If your nutes are at 500ppm and two days later there at 350ppm you need to up your ppm! It works like this change res set ppm at say 600ppm ph 5.9 run for 24hrs, now if you ppm rise and ph drops nutes are to strong. If ppm drop and ph rises, nutes are to weak. But if your ppm and ph are...

    Ed's hash and oil pipe

    I hate putting my oil on top of other stuff, if I wanted to smoke weed that's what I'd do! Though is a nice blend sometimes, but is still a pain. It seems I have been looking for years for a really good oil pipe and no luck a few here and there but nothing custom like these. The best I have...

    speeding up flowering

    Bud blood is used in weeks 1-2 of flowering to help then start bud sites as far as finishing faster I don't think so, Bloombastic is used in weeks 3-5 for max bud growth but I still don't see them finishing any faster. I really don't know of additive for faster ripening, only bigger and better...

    Draining the UC system

    45' is a long way to pump the water for a 950, is it uphill at all? When you look at the specs on the pump you want to look at your output at 45' head! This head pressure will tell you what you can pump. I'm sure your 950 will work SLOWLY if you prime it IMO I would get a larger pump. BHW

    UC 4XL under 1000 watt in 5x5 hydrohut OG Kush & Pre 98 Bubba

    Stu Were is your water level at? IMO You want to have it a few inches below the RW, so that the nutes bubble up to it and tease the roots to make them reach for the nutes. If you keep that RW wet your roots won't grow out for along time, no need to they have what they need in the RW. Hang in...

    am i the only one who lives by d.m. zone

    Motherlode Yes I do pre-mix everything including Zone(1ml/gal) before adding it to my res, I don't use PH down or up nasty stuff! So it's okay to add zone everyday with my nute top off, cool, I'd think it would start to build up after a few weeks. Thanks BHW

    am i the only one who lives by d.m. zone

    So If I add 10 gals a day to my res then I would add 10 ml of Zone everyday? Is there a toxic level of Zone? Since the plants are not using the zone what is the half life of zone, does it build up or fade away? What are the signs of toxicity? Thanks BHW

    UC 4XL under 1000 watt in 5x5 hydrohut OG Kush & Pre 98 Bubba

    Stu IMO I think the time is gained when I go from aero cloner to UC, my roots are already hanging down into nutes and ready to rock whereas w/the RW you must wait for the roots to grow out of RW and down into the nutes and then they must adjust to 24hr nutes there now in before they start...

    UC 4XL under 1000 watt in 5x5 hydrohut OG Kush & Pre 98 Bubba

    Hi Stu On your next run if your use the aero cloner clones DON'T put them in RW, just put them in a pot w/hydrton and UC will rock no stress lag unless you get your lights to close. I use to do the same thing putting clones in RW and waiting for roots and having to top water. But it saves...

    Ph problems in the undercurrent

    You say your ph swings what is your ppm doing? This is the formula I always go by. If you let your UC system run 24 hrs. and in that time it uses say 5 gals of solution what happens? If ppm down/ph up Nutes are weak If ppm up/ ph down Nutes to strong But if ppm and ph are stable then...
