Hi GC, this is my first DWC setup and its kind of disapointing. I spent a lot of time getting this set up right with the thought that this would be faster than soil, but with all the problems im having its taking much longer to get going than soil. One of of the DWC plants was started from seed in rockwool, the other one was cloned and has been alive for over a month but hasnt grown yet. They've both been in DWC for a little over a week now, maybe 2. The picture of the plant in soil is the same strain planted at the same time as the DWC one, you can tell it looks much healthier. What strain? LSD and LA Woman (LA Woman from seed) How old are the plants? Clone is over a month old, seed is over a week What type of lights and how many watts? 250w MH How far from the lights? Almost 3 feel What is your watering frequency and source of water? As needed, from britta filter. Original fillup was with distilled What, how much and when was it fed? NPK? 1/4-1/3 strength Lucas formula, about 400 TDS reading What is the medium/runoff pH and PPM if in hydro? 6.0-6.2 What are the temps and humidity in the room? 73-81 What size pots? 5 gal Any bugs? Look real close. no Any other pertinent info? Oh forgot to say I also added a few small doses of Liquid Karma. 2 Bubble stones per bucket. Water level is about .5"-1" submerging to mesh pot.
