    HYDRO Roots

    Can anyone please help with identifying my root problem using gen hydro flora in 20 gallon superponic system and a homemade clear Rez solution of chlorine

    Looks like they are being chemically pruned. Dont do hydro but those roots are trying to grow without going into the water. Maybe too much preventing treatment?

      Thank you. The solution I’m using should be identical to clear Rez but I guess I went to heavy I will stop using immediately

    Umm...chlorine?
    i don’t think roots like it.
    There are 3 things you must check everyday when growing in hydro:
    1) Water level (How much h2o is she drinking in 24hrs)
    2) pH level (change over 24hrs)
    3) ppm/EC level (How much food is she eating in 24hrs)

      I’ve heard of using people using hydrogen peroxide but never chlorine. I would think that is has to be at a very very minimal concentration?

    What's the ph? Are you keeping it steady?

      There is something in that reservoir that the roots don’t like. Your homemade chlorine solution sounds suspect. I used Hydroguard for my DWC grow and had zero root problems.

      Howdy HydroBushDoctor, STOP USING THE CHLORINE SOLUTION, it's killing the plants!!!!! I use the city tap water, it has a tiny amount of chlorine in it, but not enough to kill off my plants. To prevent root rot and other unwanted organisms from growing in the reservoir, keep the water well aerated, cool (temperature between 62° F and 70° F), and block out ALL light leaks. One can also use the hydro-guard, but I prefer the other method (temp, air, and no light) for my grows.
      Smoke weed,.....grow peace!

      Once you get the reservoir under control, be sure to keep us posted on root growth/recovery. 👍
      Many people could find your experience useful to help resolve a similar problem.

        That's the strangest thing I've ever seen.

          update my plants recovered just fine they really didn't even get stunted much at all that I noticed roots started growing after I changed the reservoir and did not add chlorine solution. I guess when I made the solution I made it to concentrated thinking I would just add a couple mls instead of 5 0r 10. Its weird it did that tho because it was the same solution I used in my cloner and the roots developed fine in that. I'm just gonna stay away from chlorine in general from now on. thanks for your help
