The hydroponics has had a great setback because i turned off the circulating pump and forgot to turn it back on again. Many of the plants suffered as the water got stagnant. The pump is on a timer that switches it on and off up to 8 times a day. Although feeding with propriety plant food I was getting nitrogen deficiency and could not believe it as the packet said it had enough. I at first tried correcting for the other deficiencies before accepting it was nitrogen. it was not until I added extra nitrogen that the plants starting to look great. This has not given me confidence that the fertilisers are what they advertise themselves to be.
