  1. Okay, I have a decent size container that i am using for hydro now. I have a water fountain pump in it that you use for an oustide water fountain. i have 4 nozzles two on each side of the plant that does the 360 spray. Well, while growing this plant it was doing great but then got sick. At first i thought it was nutrient lock or burrn or lack of. not the case. I think i have root rot.

    Reason is because i have my pump running 24/7 with the nozzles pointing towards the roots. My question is... If i place my pump on a timer what are the desired times for watering ? Should i do half hour on half hour off? thanks
  2. you need to explain your grow better.... is this an aero system?

    put some pics in here...

    what do the roots look like? got a res temp?
