" I used 4" sch40 and bought 3" hydroponics pots and a 3" hole saw. I drilled my first 3" hole and the pot fell right through so I had to go back and buy a 2 7/8" hole saw. That drilled the right size hole…"
"Just remove the base from the cage. There is a series of screws that hold the cage onto the base. Use the torx head on these and remove them just as, I assume, you did on the top brace bars. You may have to set the lower cage on…"
"Hey guys...another newbie question. I am using a 275 gallon IBC system. RIght now I have the water tank sitting in the metal base/pallet that it came in. I wanted to get the tank down onto the ground so it is not quite so high but…"
You need to hold the ammonia level at 4ppm, so no more dosing. Yes the plants have enough Nitrates, good for growth. Please continue testing for Ammonia and Nitrites each day from tomorrow. If your ammonia starts to decrease and you still…"
"I have grapes in the ground, three years old but don't know much about them, really. The ones I have produce fruit on old (previous season) wood, which may be true of all grapes.
Is your system indoors?…"
"Spacing depends on what you'll be growing. I used 10cm spacing and the holes were 5cm. This is my first time with NFT and it is doing amazing. The slope I chose is 10cm. The water shouldn't go too fast through but too slow isn't good…"
"Thanks, I added ammonia this am and tested tonight and had no measurable nitrites at a pH of 6.85 at 74degrees but my nitrates are now close to 60 ppm. My ammonia level was 4ppm. I replanted the grow beds and that will help control the nitrates…"
"blue gill all the way bro. can handle both highs and lows in our area. I'm actually in Patterson, ca. next to tracy. i used a submersible fish tank heater in the winter and kept the water around 55-60 degrees and shut pump off at night on…"
To be sure you can test for Nitrites a few hours after dosing ammonia, every hour, for about 4-6 hours. The next day test after dosing from the 6th hour to the 10th just to be sure. Could be the river water was preloaded with a fair density…"
