If you’ve ever wondered how to make sure your water is in good shape before you start using it to grow hydroponic plants, this is the video for you. When I first starting growing hydroponically, I didn’t know what I was doing and made a ton of mistakes (if you look up one of my earlier videos, you can see the proof!). ***Remember to check your pH again 30 minutes after you mix nutrients and adjust accordingly*** These days, I’m a *little* bit smarter, so I figured I’d remake the video with less mistakes and hopefully more information for all of your beginners out there. I might not have done everything PERFECTLY, but it’s good enough for beginners to hydroponics and it’ll get the job done in my garden just perfectly. This is a 20 gallon tank for my Tower Garden that will be producing exclusively leafy greens like kale, spinach, bok choy, watercress, and mustard greens. Anytime you’re growing something that you’re not taking through to the flowering / fruiting phase of growth, you have a bit more leeway in how you set it up.

    I am currently fighting root rot with H202 37% in a 7 gallon DWC. How long will it take to dissipate the H202 in the res so I can add the Hydroguard to add benificial bacteria? Also do I need to de-chlorinate my tap water before using the Hydroguard? I have read that chlorine in tap water can kill beneficial bacteria as well as the bad stuff.

    Hi wonderful information… My question about the nutrient dose is…is it same for all types of plants or it's different? If it is different how to find the correct dose for a specific plant other than searching on Google? For example I couldn't find how to Mix it for cilantro. Please help.

    Hi there, is DWC good for high temperature climate? 85-86F. I'm thinking just putting frozen water bottle on the reservoir?

    Good job! Very concise.

    Just want to know, don't you need to mix thoroughly each of the hydroponic nutrient part before adding the next? Will it not create a nutrient lockout?

    Love the vid. I also have a tower garden. How often should I change out nutes? Do I need to clean out the tank each time I replace or can I just add new pH'd nutes to the same res?
