well my flower station is setup for 36 ladies but my veg table is setup for 42 cuz i like to choose the strongest 36 and the remaining 6 as bakups or toss em.

but u have any links for harborside? the guy im dealin with does sumthing similar; large clone production for growers. but id like to widen my selection.

i def always focus on root development and tryin to learn more as i grow.

filling the table with hydroton would be more space efficient to me so the roots can blow out further and i have 4" more of heigth to work with by gettin rid of the 4" rockwool slab. as long as i cant find a negative reason to do this method then i mite make this conversion. issue would b i want to continue using my ring drip emitters but not sure all the roots will get fully watered with this feeding method. i dont like the concept of flood and drain with a recirculating rez. i prefer to waste my runoff and not contaminate my feed rez. so thats the issue i need to work thru

I also like the idea of filling the table with hydroton. You would be starting in rockwool and then just burying them in the hydroton right? If you don't like the recirculating water idea then why not have the same set-up, just have the water drain to waste anyway? You would have to be filling the rez a lot, but not much more than now.

Shit is looking tight mayn. Sorry I havent been posting a lot on here lol I lurk hard.

when i switch to earth boxs witch is similar to what you talking about but soil then roots can expand into water res at bottom they liked alot more than individual containers

ya im thinkin i mite make the switch. maybe even just do a recirculating system idk. still got a lot to consider but thanks for the input guys

Drying Area

so ive been busy with lots of diff projects and all the new upgrade plans running thru my head.

but wanted to get sum input real quick for my drying area.

last time i harvested i just chopped down main branches and trimmed em up and hung em on a rope. been seeing other large growers use a screen variation for dryin. between drawer style and net slinky style im figuring i mite as well make my own drying area.

the closet is completely open and was gonna just make a rectangle "screen shelf" that stretches across the entire closet and do several layers so i have enough room to throw nuggs on and dry out. figured id use 1"x1" pieces of wood to make a frame and staple down the screen material and mount it like any other shelf.
anyways let me know any ideas or sumthing better possibly.

New and Improved Veg Room

k well nuthin too cool i guess but i worked on the veg room to clean up my wiring and get the control box setup with the subpanel. took out the flood tray and rez, bleached em down and cleaned em white. reogranized my pumps and wires. decided to ditch the "mothers" in the waterfarm buckets. i took cuttings from wat was vegged and threw em under the flouro lamps. only ended with 2 master bubba kush and 4 sour grape. hope they root and i can start fresh with the newly modified waterfarm bucket drip system i setup. this will house my new mothers

ill post sum pix tomorrow when i get a chance but i incorporated gravity with the setup to help balance my ph.

i put cynder blocks under plywood that the waterfarm buckets sit on top like an upper level. then the rez sits on the floor which is about 10" lower then the buckets top. this will force water in the buckets to drain down the rez and insde the rez will be the submerged pump that feeds into a 1/2" tube with 1/4" feed tubes to ring drip emitters i cut and measured out myself. this way the ring drips are more effective for veg. the ring drippers that came with the setup sucked balls. they were almost out as wide as the bucket rim itself. how the fuk the roots supposed to be way the fuck out there already ya knw? anyways i threw on the tomato trellis cage by using needle nose pliers to bend the legs the way i needed to form around the buckets and duct taped them down for security. this will help for support later. i lowered the lights down also so i can benefit more lumens this round. last time i wasnt paying attention and was wasting light.

sooo i think thats it for now hoping to get u guys an update tomorrow as we start week 4 of flower and ull see the improvement of bud development. my c02 seems pretty tight it hangs around at like 1650ppm most the time and is only set to hit 1550ppm.

also im lookin for new strains so any heavy couch lock strains u guys know let me know. thinking bout buying seeds from cali connect and get sum new shit rollin. hoping to start my breeding project once i upgrade into my warehouse 8)

Flower Update Week 4 Day 22

realized my flower day count was a day or two off and had to adjust my feeding schedule so now my flush is only a day behind on the real schedule.
been feeding with PH around 5.6-5.9 and ppms seem to creep up slowly and hittin 1100-1250 and im thinkin its too high cuz the fan leafs are changing colors and there all diff. so its makin the diagnosis harder. im gonna wait to see results after last nites flush.
Flush was 250-300ppm PH @ 5.7

still attempting to dial in diff factors with this strain.
Not sure what PH is best to keep it at so i gotta experiment to see wat does wat. Im starting to believe in the K.I.S.S. method of basic feeding and not so many additives. its hard to keep the ppm down with so much shit being added. im only doin half strength as is and still having high ppm.

i think next round i might try the same recipe on one table then just the base nutes with a bloom additive and all the root beneficial nutes.

anyways heres the update of the ladies;


table #1

Waterfram conversion #57 lol

i deicided to scrap the old stunted mother clones and start over with a better style system that uses gravity to push drain each bucket into the main rez at the end on the floor. this allows me to control PH and PPM better

No rest for the wicked Boomer! :big_boss: Looks like you've been real busy since the beginning... I respect your hard work and super clean setup. Very inspiring! Before you know it, you'll have more clones than you know what to do with... And as for the nutrient mix, I think your plan to keep it simple is a great idea, and then you can experiment with one or two supplements to see how they affect growth. On a side note, I'm not sure how many waterings you do at lights on with the rockwool cuz it holds lots of water, almost too well... :thinking BTW, I'm diggin' the tomato cage connection to the buckets (gonna have to copy that idea if I ever grow trees ala Under Current).

p.s. I'm pretty sure your high end camera has a white meter setting... If you set it under the HPS using a white object, your shots when the lights are on will be much more color accurate. :cool

Damn boomer loving your canopy for sure! Nice come up on that new drip set up. I am sure will have great results with it. As I have said before. I really like your room It looks fantastic. How are you liking those fat rockwool cubes?

If you take pictures at night you don't have to have the white balance on. Just turn it back to auto, or daylight. You only need to turn on white balance when the lights are off.

As for those leafs left to right.

Leaf 1: I am thinking it is either Magnesium, or Zinc issue. Possibly both.

Leaf 2: I am thinking it is an Nitrogen issue

Leaf 3: I am thinking it is a Calcium issue.

the sour grape is trippy cuz ive seen it flower out before and the fan leafs get all kinds of crazy colors. but im dialing in my nutes and had to take the learning curve since this is my first indoor grow. but im sure ill get it down. thanks again for helpin

thanks brotha. try to make the room as legit as possible.

in regards to the nute diagnoisis i think u guys r in the right ballpark.

i went ahead pulled out both 70 gall nute rezs and emptied it then rinsed it down to get all the crap out and start fresh. i thru in RO water about 30galls each 70gall rez and added Final Phase for my flush tomorrow. im hopin this will clear up any issues and continue to push the yield.

i cant remember but the fan leafs (once colors changed) do not change bak to the normal green right? it stays damaged til it falls off?

i start week 5 of flower tomorrow and gonna be doin 1200ppm

funny thing is almost all of the flower period has been at 1100-1250ppm cuz i continued to over do all the nutes (same reason why im goin to try more basic nutes next round) considering how high the ppms were, the sour grape strain seemed to hold its own and not show any burn signs. now the issues is gettin the nute requirements for each stage down to keep the universal green color thru flower.

yeah they bounce back i think the first two will and the third gonna be a lil more difficult but i think YOU can handle it just fine bro

Hi there!
I suggest General Hydro 3 part!

I've been transplanting fresh cuttings (OG, SourD, LVPK, JTR) into 1200 ppm with no issues.

Flowering Jack has been getting soaking up 1500+ all day long, and ive even measured my runoff at over 2000ppm, so I fed with plain water until desired level.

Its super easy to get along with, this is my first run with it and the results thus far are amazing.

Just my .02!

Great journal, awesome canopy!
