"I did have trouble with purchased plants so I stick to grown from seed. The lettuce and other leafy greens do not seem to be susceptible to this. It happens both in AP and soil, so I'm thinking it might be the humidity.  But I am going to…"

"Diddo what Lloyd said. I too used ammonia. As far as the siphons are concerned, having sold over 400 now, sight unseen (a pic of your siphon would be great, top and bottom) I believe you need a vent right after the 1st or 2nd 90. It is not…"

Lloyd Booth commented on Rick Stillwagon's group Northwest Aquaponics
