oh I understand completely big brah so basically when there’s no water in the reservoir or even going through the pumps I should unplug my water pump To be on the safe side, Yeah and one more thing i was using water from my water hose because it’s a little easier than the bathtub so it runs hot at the beginning because it’s outside that’s why my degrees hit 80 Fahrenheit instead of cold water but I see a water Chilller is a must and CO2 So I have to get a fan, CO2 and water chiller. Then I will be successful all around
so you are getting your water from an outside faucet through a garden hose. that must have a wonderful taste .... any way you could bypass the water hose. In addition, does your water smell like chlorine? A lot of water companies use chlorine to clean the water. If it does put in your mixing tub over night with an air stone to keep the water fresh so the chlorine will dissipate over night. Then thoroughly mix your nutes one at a time as listed in order on the feeding schedule. Then pH balance before you put the nute /water solution into the reservoir.

You're doing great man. Keep on with the keep on. Peace and Love.

remember, your babies are like a sponge and are going to absorb everything in your reservoir, including bad tastes from the water. Treat them like you love them brother. They're depending on you.

Peace and Love.

No brother. You don't PH your water until after you mix your nutes, not before. Let your water sit in a container overnight with an air stone before you use it . If you do the chlorine will evaporate and your water will not have the chlorine. Chlorine is not good for your plants. It's easy. Just fill a container the day before with your tap water, throw an air stone in it to keep it bubbly fresh, leave it be until the next day. Next day, mix your nutes, PH it all then use as needed. I would even let the nute mix set a couple hours with the air stone after it has been PH'd just to let it blend well and settle down. Then check the PH again, adjust if necessary, then use.

Peace and Love.

I would go to week 2 on the veg nute cycle. I don't think you should switch to flower quite yet. Let the roots develop this next week and then we will take another look. Vegetation is all about getting healthy roots. Healthy roots = Healthy fruits!! Don't rush this stage, it is very important. Step by step brother. You're doing great. It all looks good. Peace and love.

Week three vegetation using week 4 nutes, flowering next week also making new clones because last clones did not survive probably five did out of 20 but I’m using the power cloner this time. I also prune again but I did not top this time.
