Yep you can take the dome off now!
24 hours in the Grobo and roots are stained brown already.
Added 5ml silica (Rhino Skin) to water before fill. Added 10 ml of Hydroguard and 1 ml of mycorrhizae (Orca) after nutes dispensed.
So in the pic above you can see brown and red specs floating where the white plastic is. The stuff is everywhere. It was on my last grow too. But I was using Recharge for that grow, and it seemed to be the cause.
Between grows I DEEP cleaned the unit. I drained and filled a few times without dispensing bottles.
Maybe this stuff was in the bottle lines?
I think that was the case. I drained all that yucky water out of the bottom of the tank with a turkey baster, wiped down the inside of the tank, and then filled with the drained nute water (which looked fine) plus some fresh distilled. Now it seems to be as clean as it should be.
Maybe in the future I’ll let it dispense water through the bottle lines while cleaning.
1 month old. This strain is growing great through early veg, hope it keeps up this way.
Could not believe it, but I saw 5 nodes (plus starter leaves made 6). Topped it.
This basil I planted the same day.

Late Vegetation (Day 7 /14)
I chose this seed because it is supposed to be a strong resilient strain. So far it is.
Last grow forced me into a flat canopy with a lot of bud sites because of all the extended veg time. I think for this plant I want to go for the quickest turn-around. I may not top again and just push through with a focus on 6 colas.
Basil plant was in full stretch, but a prosciutto caprese sando forced a pruning. Tasted great!
@BeeDubya - Nice!
(Ive been watching your grow too.)
It’s going to be my second ever.
Mine is dried but not cured and I am already pretty happy with the effects.
Its just getting frosty now, hoping it will stack like yours did @BeeDubya.
