Dry Start using ADA AS

I just want to confirm that the water I would use is dechlorinated water only. No need to add ferts to the water or the misting spray?

Re-starting HC DSM....

Thanks!

I add some ferts to the misting water, but I don't really think it matters. Couldn't hurt though.

You can add some fertilizers to the misting solution so that your plants occasionally get some fertilizers.

Dechlor and ferts are not needed, IME. Ferts might help, but if it's fresh AS, there's really no need.

I did it recently without ferts or dechlor. HC and other plants all grew out quickly.
