“I don't even like to say ‘flush,' but definitely avoid running straight RO and before you make any changes. Break it down to what the real issue is, take a look at what your environmental factors are. Is your VPD in range? Are your daytime humidities and temperatures where you want them to be? Are they stable? Are your nighttime humidities and temperatures where you want them to be? Are they stable? And thinking about light sourcing, about nutrient composition; there’s quite a few things that that can go into that.” -- Jason Van Leuven
“It's really important to have a dry-back period. If we irrigate our plants all night long, the roots are going to become stagnated. I like to think about it just as lazy behavior. If they don't have to work to seek out the water, they're not going to engulf your entire media, they're not going to work hard to get that plant as exercised as possible for full growth.” -- Jason
“If you're trying to diagnose plant symptoms without data, it's going to be next to impossible, just because you've got so many plants. A weak plant looks like a weak plant. Yes, there's a lot of different symptoms we can look at, but without physically being there, it's really hard to use someone else's eyes or even the camera to see. And even then, you want to look at as many data points as you can.” -- Seth Baumgartner
“If an environment's not in-line, the plant’s not going to be able to use that water the way we want it to.” -- Seth
