Contolling algae in a hydro veggie tower
(Salem, or United states)
So i have a 5ft tall tower that uses a pump to flow the water from top to bottom which is a 5 gal. Bucket. Im getting algae growth in the clear line that traverses the wall into my tower. Now besides reducing the light by painting the bucket black and maybe getting a line that isnt transparent, I had heard you could use a vineger solution in the main water reservoir.
Will this hurt my lettuce and tomatoes?
