Aahh gotcha now that makes sense uff haha. I did keep the old bottle in my sink to just make sure and I’ll check on it here. When I took the bottle out it did have a bit of it underneath so that’s probly what happened? I got a response from them this morning that said the bottles got dispensed normally this morning after I did the weekly drain and fill… I did make sure to mark it this time around too! So if the lines are mixed up how do you fix that? I’m sorry I’m not good with this kinda stuff my boyfriend is better with the mechanics. @miami5th thank you so much for all your help with this!
Well that may be good news! After your recent drain/fill did fluid come out of Bottle #3?
Yes it did! And I do use distilled water
Ok great! Then the lines are definitely not crossed so that’s good! That is a little weird that Bottle 3 wasn’t dispensing earlier.
What matters the most is the health of the plant and she is looking good! Nice job and keep us updated here and we’ll make it to the finish line!
Yeah I know, it is odd. I’ll make sure to keep eye on it though. Thank you, I am very proud of her she’s looking awesome I think too! I can’t wait to try the buds compared to what I normally get! 🪴
@miami5th oh man now I just checked it again and the bottle 3 is filled back up and overflowed on the bottom. Put in another ticket…
Nutrient lines crossed! So sorry this happened with your unit but I think it’s a very easy fix.
@miami5th so how do you fix it if you have a plant in there?
It would be best if you worked with Grobo Support for the fix. It may just involve swapping those yellow’ish nute lines or it may involve something else. I’ve used the support a few times and they are really good and will get to the bottom of the issue. Moreover, they will make things right and usually compensate you in the form of a free grow kit (nute bottles 1-5, cocopod, carbon filter).
Sounds good I’m hoping it’s an easy fix and my plant doesn’t get hurt. Thanks for your advice!
@QueenoftheGreen Hey just checking in to see if you were able to work with Support and any sort of resolution?
@miami5th So I heard back from support and we got the lines switched now. I asked them if this bottle is done now because it has water in it but haven’t heard back yet. Thanks for your help!
Ok glad to hear it’s being straightened out! If you have a fresh bottle #3 I would definitely install it and discard the old one. If not, you will probably be fine until a new one arrives.
I would say exactly the same… diluted nute are not dangeurous… just less concentrated.
And grobo dispense a certain amount of a product… if concentration vary or you mix bottle or what ever… your box will try to pump the same predetermined amount.
If the bottle was almost full, it should not have diluted much… especially if the color is still dark
You are in great hands with the community here, especially our champions. Chatting with the team it sounds like you are fixed up and a replacement bottle is on the way on us. Whew!
Swap it out once it arrives but no worries. This bottle only dispenses once a week when you drain then fill your unit completely. You can get away with a couple weekly water changes with the current ‘diluted’ bottle, but then do change it out.
Good luck with this grow and let us know if you have any other questions or snags along the way.
@Stephen Thanks for the advice and help!!
Is this how it should be looking at this stage I feel like I don’t see any flowers forming and worried!
I don’t see any pistils yet, but I don’t see any “balls” either which is a good sign. You may want to put her back into late veg to get a little more height, it’ll get your flowers more light as they develop. Totally up to you, but with where you’re at, you are going to be extending flower for sure.
@FireGuy Okay thank you! I have extended the late veg state by one weeek already so probly need to go just extend flower now?
