Whoa wait, with the medium in bvb the buckets the water will rise more. Right? Should I get betting to wrap around the clay pebbles?

See where the water level is with hydroton buckets are in their place.

SCROG is screen of green. It is basically a net web over the tops of the plants. You keep tucking the plant tops back under the net as they grow up through the net. It will keep the plant height shorter and increase the number of bud sites.

Awesome. Yeah I didnt think with the medium the water would be higher. And ah SCROG, just watched a video on that yesterday. The led side bars, do you think they are positioned properly in the middle like in the picture?

I’d don’t have any side lighting like that. What kind of lights are they? Meaning are they grow lights with proper spectrum? As far as positioning I would have to defer to others with experience using side lighting. You might want to ask that question in the sub-forum for lighting.

Yeah they are specifically for flower, but great suggestion. When I get off work I'll post a video of the fill and if / when you can please let me know if you believe it to be acceptable. I am unable to put the medium in until Tursday due to work but I'd love to get your opinion on the fill.

I’ll watch for your post, but you want enough fill during flood cycle to submerge the roots. I’m assuming it’s a system you purchased from a hydroponic retailer. If so it should be good once you put the medium in it.

That is an awesome system your working with👍👍. Build yourself a frame and scrog all the way home to mom!! I’ve had EXCELLENT results w the flora-n- gro set up like you have. Does your brain bucket have adjustable floats? So you can control how high the water gets? If not it’s nbd at all! I’ve used that system with Rockwool croutons (expensive) , clay pebbles and sunshine #4 advanced (soiless mix). Straight coco w perlite I bet would rip in there as well. Clay pebbles area great place to start though. Just keep your reservoir CLEAN! After changing the water give it a good scrub while it’s empty to remove any slime built up. Also In my experience BEWARE of how much organic based nutes you add. If you have nutes that after they are all mixed you can clearly see the bottom of your rez that is GOOD! Flora trio and flo-n-gro are perfect fit. I would just stick with the base nutes micro bloom and gro and beware of all the supplemental shit they wanna sell you. It’s not necessary and if you run a clean system your much more likely to avoid root rot. Etc. good luck I think your going to love it😁👍

Dude that wipe the bucket after clean is primo advice, thank you. I am returning it now. I learned cannabis only need 6 inches to a foot each, my rubber hoses were WAYYYY too long. I hope to post a video today soon and get everyones opinion. I'll need way more help but you guys have been there for me. Nutes advice also on point

Fun fact, I have put an old history encyclopedia under each pot to add the last bit of height I needed. So each plant will be referenced by that history books name. SSII, World War II, etc
