Whats up Farm Fam, its been awhile since my last grow log. I had some setbacks this round that slowed me up. First off I got some bunk ass clones roots were all dead and they came with bugs. Took me several weeks to revive and clean them. out of 40+ clones, i saved bout 20. Sad part is I paid top dollar for them. ohh well u live n learn, keep it moving and stay positive. Also I planned on setting up an auto feed systems like Jackmayoffer thread, but in the end after all the work was done, I needed a 600$ pump (like he runs) to make it work sooo, that shit will have to wait till next round. I guess its back to pump,wand,and trash can on wheels.

Not to much diffrent this round, Beds r 5 inches of 33% pithy coco, 33% chunky coco, 33% grow rocks(silica stones) then a thin coco mat under that and then 1 inch of growstones in the hempy like rezzie at the very bottom of the beds.

Feedin Aqua flakes A&B as a base and all A1 adds( got to stick to what kills!). I feed every day if im not lazy and i brew a tea once a week with EWC, ancient forrest Alfalpha meal(thnx schwoop the alfalpha really helped bring the plants back to life) molassas, flora vino, A1 powered Kelp, and Caps bennies.

Temps and humidity steady at 75degrees and 55rh

Im rockin 3 diffrent WIFI cutts, (2 of mines, one that i bought) Blue Dream, and a few strawberry diesels.

Enough of the Blah, blah, blah, heres the pixs of the plants on Day 1 of flower.

My wifis 2 diffrent phneos, these clones were the smallest ever when they started, some only 1 inch above the medium. they were last minute because the other clones i bought died and needed to be replaced.

Those plants are too huge for that bed!!!! Excited to see another grow with hempy style drains on a bed confuten. Aqua flakes is that canna, house and garden, or A1? The white fires love growing in beds I hope you are prepared for some huge, gigantic knocker buds!! How do you plan on supporting those girls once they pack the weight on?

Yo swiss, those plants r jus the right size for that bed, wish the other ones were bigger. Im using H&G aqua flakes, and tea wifis beds! Always prepared for gigantic buds!. I should have put up a trelis sooner but honestly the plants were half that size when i transplanted them in the beds 2 weeks ago and ive been busy. I plan on pitting up the net this weekend.

Thnxfor stopping by, ur thread is killing it btw! Keep up the good work!

Yo Al, thnx for stoppin by, yea money is always an issue. I never buy things for the room if the room doesnt pay for it so pump has to wait till i harvest. I bought a danner 1200 gal and that was way to small, i need a gundaflos pump like jack have and those things cost more than my pool pump haha!
Cant wait to c u up n running!

Thanks for the kind words and I feel you on the money thing! Have you tried an 1800gph danner pump for your irrigation system? I've ran 8 lights worth of beds on one of those in the past no problem. I read $600 pump and almost had a heart attack you must have a big show!!

Sorry to hear bout the troubles. Will only get better from here. Trying to help out with the automation:
What brand/model sprinkler valve did you buy and test the pump with?

Nahh, jus the 1200 danner, i think its the octabubblers and the 1inch line. Im only running 2 beds and tried watering one at a time, comes out like a drip not like a spray. Each octabubbler has 8 lines, running 2 bubblers per bed.

No worries, just trying to help you get up and running. I have seen the DIY and setup a few systems or helped other setup ones that are very similar.

Why: The make/ model ## of your valves will help to determine if the problem is the valve restricting flow. I need the specs or model/make to determine if that is the weak link in your chain.

Reason I ask: Some people do with the cheapest valves and sometimes they are rated for low G.P.H. That can then reduce the flow to a drip rather than a spray.

Hope that helps.

P1050745.JPG

I thought i had a pixs of the sprayers in the bed, but its basically 2 octabubblers (6gph) per bed. Ive since ripped them out and will reinstall them nxt round when i have the pump in hand.
