A nice steady breeze on them will strengthen them up.

E.C 1.2 would be my max in veg unless required, but that would be later in veg.

A little Silicon added to their feed soon strengthens them up too. Good stuff in such situations.

No you include the waters EC. So 0.8 added to the 0.4 water to get 1.2.

I've never grown aeroponically or with an active res. so not sure regards that my friend.

Yes most people just use straight tap water. I've used it straight from the tap, hot and cold mixed to 20ºc without any issues. These days i prefer to fill big water butts up and let it settle for a few days 1st, lets it come to its natural pH.

Also its simpler than always making up fresh nutes straight from the tap. It doesn't suit my situation atm as its a little suspect for me.

Hi mate

Your ec seems a little high for a plant 8 days from seed, i usually only use formulex and rhizotonic at this stage with an ec of around .5

Why are you boiling your water?

Wait until you have lots of roots before you put them in your system mate. Good luck with it. :yep:
