My Hydro stand and indoor garden
I built the hydro stand and have decided to set it up as a split system 1/2 lettuce raft, 1/2 ebb n flow. The ebb and flow I hope to have set up in another 10 days. This is set up in a spare room I have and is doing well. The biggest "problem" I'm having is with algae.
According to your trouble shooting guide this is caused by,
1) Stagnant water, I have a 4" air stone in my 2 x 4 grow tub.
2)Excessive moisture, as this is a lettuce raft not sure how to cut down on the amount of moisture my plants receive.
3) Light, I have a 4 tube T5 light fixture suspended above my plants, lettuce and other salad greens. This light I leave on for 16 hours a day.
Generally this system provides 55% to 65% humidity and temps from 65@ F at night to 83@ F during the day. I have an oscillating fan blowing 24/7.
Is there anything I can do to cut down on the amount of algae growth?
