    Whats up framers? 1st time vertical grower...

    Finally have this room done...it's 100% inspired because of caps wall of dank thread.

    12k vertical in two rows...32 plants...co2, 5 ton ac.

    3x6 geoplanters

    I made a vertical trellis out of PVC and netting and will add the second screen b4 the flip.

    These plants were abused for a month during the build out and only had 1000w to veg under in the 23x14 room.... They have been vegging for two weeks with 9k and have blown up.

    that room is going to go in to beast mode. I bet the plants go almost all the way to the ceiling. Need to get in there and thin them out at flip and again at week 3 or 4. Especially the backsides.

    Looks like a good distance from your bulbs,not much penetration going on. I clean my bulbs once a week to help the girls shine more. Hope you have a killer harvest. JK

    Flipped em today. Got all the screens up. The cookies wall was getting too crowded so I bent two of them over and made a 3x6 horz screen since she doesn't have to get blasted with light.



    Thanks for stoping by JK, I admire all your knowledge, and appreciate any insight you can give.

    The way it's set up most of the bulbs are about 24-28" away from the first screen and I plan on yoyoing them away from the blubs once they finish stretch in hopes of them not getting burnt. ( I put another screen on top of the PVC frames so they can stretch up a few feet as well).Im going to be learning as I go as this is my first endeavor with vert.

    Yea those are old bulbs, just put new ones in there, is that what you mean by penetration?

    Low plant counts are awesome so far, can't wait to have some trees!

    Thanks!

    Do not let that starfighter go past 53-55 days. Keep RH down last couple weeks and watch for budrot. She gets too dense for her own good.

    Appreciate the heads up! in my horz room the starfighters are getting chopped here soon, and the rest of the room is going to go to 65-70 days.
    It formed Xmas tree shaped buds that are hard as a rock and lime green!

    I haven't ever reused it before but I am going to try it this round.

    The raised beds are 3x6 geoplanters.

    It's hard to get good pictures of the screens.

    I'm excited to see how these plants grow.

    First up are the AG monsters.
    It has 3 layers of screens and I added bamboo stakes vertical and horizontal, tried something different here.
