changing water/nutrient in reservoirs
by: Wayne Schultz

Ten to fourteen days is about average. However as summer advances with higher temperatures you need to guard against the development of algae there fore you may need to reduce that time to somewhat less than ten days.

Your shop will tell you to change the nutes every week. I did and you don't need to. Watch your plants mist if all. Keep you ph right an your ppm in a reasonable range. I will start my ppm on the high side so I can just add rain water for a couple weeks. I have 95 plants in my hybrid NFT system. From cucumbers to corn to tomatoes to strawberries. All very happy. Thus is my 2nd grow season. I had lettuce cilantro dill and broccoli all winter.

Green pipes
by: Juga

paint your tubes green, cover your open holes and you will not have algae. Next time use the green sewer pipe and you will not have problems with algae
