Plants doing well. Started 2nd week of flower. My ph is doing okay. I.m running my ppm a little high I think. 870 pp, 23 liter or 6 gallons. But I've heard of some peeps running it even higher.

All but one plant burnt. Still yellowing on leaves. I'll be lucky to get one plant to harvest. Lesson learned. Fired up the second box today with 8 clones. waiting for the other 10 to root.

That's a Mad Set Up.


If the indoor plants had a Night and Day and a Moving Sun.

Like a rotating platform with a dimmer.

Duel Spectrum

I gave them both spectrums until the beginning of the 6th week.
After this grow is done I will have to do some tweeking to the boxes. The air pump supplied is a very good pump. But the p.s.i. is low. I think 2.90 psi with 793gph.
Upgrading it to a 5.2 psi, 1030 gph and adding two 12" stones for a total of 6 12" air stones.
I want to change the air pump in the Bloom Box also.(Pics to follow) Maybe a 950gph since it takes less water.
I think this will take care of the root systems varying in size. More Oxygen is better roots.

Hydro is a tough gig but worth it if all goes well. having all your plants linked to one system means if you fuck up then you fuck everything. Soil limits the amount of repairable damage.
My big Hydro mistake was getting help with the day to day chores. Twice I added fertilizer to my holding tank and right after my partner came by and did it again.
Have you tried draining the system totally of water and exposing the roots to direct air? Lots of grow tables are set up to drain hourly before the next drenching in nutrient rich water.
The trick to taking it to the next level is micro nutrients, the ones not in your basic fert's. Soil is full of micros where hydro they have to be added in.

Micro Nukes

BCNL supplied a nutrient chart for mixing with water change once a week. The problem I first had was the PH. Now that I have that down along with getting the roots to develop things are going nicely. The buds are rock hard and huge. The one thing I did add to their mix was Cha Ching to help with the smell and oils.

Come trimming time, what do you do with the shake? I found that it makes a nice oil, capable of making a grown man take a knee after 2 puffs

Wife has a magic butter machine for the shake and loose buds. Makes some killer jolly ranchers with the butter.

Harvest

Producer box yield was 8 ounces of usable product. And 2 ounces of product to use for cooking. Not a bad haul but could be better. Had it tested. 21% THC, 15% cbd. Was told those are some good numbers.
