    Default Hello! First time grower here

    Hello everyone I am getting ready to start my first ever grow using Hydroponics. My main question is what strength should I use my nutrients at? Or is there a chart I can reference to that is fairly accurate? I've been doing research and trying to figure everything out that I can but I just keep seeing standard feeding charts and I've seen people say they are a bit too strong. I will be using the GH Flora Series and Cal-Mag (all I have right now)
    My Current set up is the following
    -MarsHydro TSW 2000W light
    -36"x36"x72" grow tent (3x3)
    -Four 5 gallon buckets
    -Hydroton Medium
    -6" wide lip mesh bottom bucket lid
    -4" 190 CFM Inline Duct fan w/ Carbon Filter

    Any advice or tips would be much appreciated! I'm super excited to start this grow and just want to make sure I'm on the right track and have a good idea of what I'm doing. Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum brother, deepwater culture can be tough in a tent unless you're on a concrete slab or you have a chiller. I guess you probably have a pH tester and an EC/TDS tester?

    When I used to run deep water culture I used general hydroponics nutrients and rarely fed above 750 parts per million to a mature plant, That's about 1 EC. You're safe increasing to about a thousand parts per million or 1.2ish EC.

    Have you decided on the brand of nutrients you're going to use yet?

    Yes I do have a pH tester and EC/TDS tester.

    I'm going to be using the General Hydroponics FloraSeries and Cal-Mag

    I don't have a chiller but I've thought about investing in one, however I have plenty of air flow and fans but I know that won't really affect the water temps

    The trio are easy nutrients to use and you'll definitely want some cal mag, It would probably be beneficial to add in some silica also. It's basically liquid sand and Hydro of course doesn't have any sand or silica.
