I have got my bottle columns up and running now.
And am doing some tests for waterproofing, timing and P.H readings.
I have added my nutrients, clay balls, the whole shooting match is ready for the plants now.
The P.H seems to keep rising into the 7′s. Not ideal. I was wondering if this may account for the high tide marks I am getting in my bottom reservoir.
It’s a sort of brownish stain.
Could it be;
A: Clay balls not washed off prperly before using?
B: The nutrients. A Rather dark liquid called “Boi-juice”. Or.
C: The very high P.H precipitating the iron out of the water and leaving a film on the reservoir?
D: Or is it plain old algea? I thought that would be green and nasty. This is brown and kind of like a dirty water mark.
I just wanted to get the whole water flow, P.H, plumbing and timing right before putting plants in
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
And I wil try to answer any questions of yours.
Thanks in advance.
