As for the chiller you can hold off until the summer. Just keep vigilant and post pics if anything goes wrong.
Remind me where you got the genetics

i'm seeing more and more of these fallponic setups.Did the feel and smell test, no sliminess smells organic or plant like nothing fowl. Pics below
Changed water Tuesday left about 4-5 gallons of old water in system. Was at 0.8 EC tried bumping up a little ended up at 1.0 EC or 500ppm on the 500tds scale. PH of course kept dropping thanks to buffers in tap water but pretty good at monitoring and adjusting keeping it under 6 around 5.7-5.8 when leveled out.
Aeration looks good in my opinion. Tried dropping water to get 1” below pots but as Sweetleaf mentioned with these big pots PA supplies hard to run it that low and keep recirculation going. Afraid if I go lower a little water consumption will cause level to go below return.

Ok sounds good will get to treating a bucket and doing the dunk tomorrow.
Got the clones from my buddy here locally. He did say he treats all of his clones with stuff shown below. Not great white or orca but figured better than nothing View attachment 1323910
Gotta love this Midwest weatherPerfect. Then that colony is the good stuff most likely.
We got a little warm spike coming next 2 days.
really good lookin rootsTime for an update. Took @Moe.Red advice and made a batch of dechlorinated ph’d water and dosed it with Orca. Dunked all 4 plants and tried to swish the gunk out. Looks like it had a positive effect as the root balls are looking much more healthy this week. 😁
Clones are on week 4 so decided to switch to flower. Gave all a good haircut and put fresh GH nutes in along with some Cool Bloom.
Also made a couple slight improvements to the system again following Moe’s suggested and added a top off reservoir. This should make life a little easier especially when I’m out of town for work and the wife is left in charge. Also put an old air pump to work and added air stones to reservoir and top off tank figuring you can never have too much oxygen and stirring of the water.
That’s all for now, let the stretch begin!

Here’s a pic of what I had in there last time and what I went with this time. I use the GH nute guide and cut everything in half.Liquid koolbloom plus florabloom is too much flower power for these girls.
Got your labels handy? Let’s go thru what you have in there.
Can do anything needed to reverse the trend, was going great a day ago lol.Lqb is too much for the plants. Can you dilute with water?
Really the ratio needs to be adjusted. P and k are thru the roof right now.Can do anything needed to reverse the trend, was going great a day ago lol.
Are you saying add X amount of dechlorinated and ph adjusted water? Bring EC down to 0.9-1.0 again?
Ok I’m going to go the easy route and change it out completely. Any adjustments needed to what a I provided, will be making 32 gals again? Can LKB be used at all or is it just a waste of money and stick with the 3 basics?Really the ratio needs to be adjusted. P and k are thru the roof right now.
In a perfect world you would want to drain 10 or 15 gals refill and check EC. Then adjust back up with grow and micro so n goes up while pk go down.
It would be easier to just drain the whole res but that wastes a lot of nutes. So your call.
Koolbloom is just high dose p and k and too much for this plant to handle.
