Oh if you all only knew…. Haha @Moe.Red hiw about the timing of that comment?
You all more than worthy we all learn from eachother… learner a lot from all if you here and what makes the farm such a great communityYou know, I just gotta say if you follow @Aqua Man around you just might learn how to grow. A lot of his suggestions are in that res.
We are not worthy aqua.
Thank you Steam, Cash, Moe, and Aquaman for chiming in and offering to help!PS - I'm no help on the nutrients, I run General Hydro.
Please excuse my ignorance,it's been a long time since I have grown hydro but why are there 2 containers? I made a lid and put them in one big reservoir,pumps and all when I used to grow hydroponics and ran a drip or bubbler, this must be better?Greetings Cultivators!
I have 3 full grows under my belt indoors in soil but now am opening a new chapter and taking the plunge into RDWC. I have been impressed with folks growing this way and so I decided to give it a shot but I have to admit, I feel like I am starting all over again....twice even....I am also going to be running 3 plants in my outdoor greenhouse this summer and that will also be a first for me. WTF am iI doing?
So starting over but with a bit of knowledge about this beautiful plant, here is my setup.
I will most likely be running a clone that I am getting from @ImpulsiveGrower, probably the and by CLTVD.
Will be running live bacteria
MarsHydro TSW 2000 LED
Spider Farmer 3x3 with SF carbon filter and inline fan
PA Hydroponics Single Plant Fallponics Hydro System
HM Digital Hydro Master EC/PPM-PH-Temp res monitor
Humboldts Secret Nutrients (the following formulas)
-Base A and B
-Sweet and Sticky
I guess I am not quite sure exactly how to get started, especially with mixing the nutrients, so I am hoping to find one of the experts here at the farm who might be willing to guide me along the way. Humboldts Secret says they are good for any growing media including hydro. It was easy peasy with soil, just followed the chart below. Not so sure how to do this with hydro so that is where I feel I am needing the most guidance.
I am going to do some reading and trying to see if I can get a bit more up to speed. I've got some time before the clone arrives and I still need to fix one small leak in the system that is making me a bit crazy right now....but I will get it soon.

No problem bro, I'm still learning too!
Thx, so it recirculates and you do all your changes outside the grow? You can check ph etc in the outside reservoir?No problem bro, I'm still learning too!
One bucket in the tent with the plant site, and one outside the tent serves as a reservoir. The way I understand it, it's easier to control the ph swings the more water in your system. I think there will be around 10 -12 gallons, going to measure that, the buckets are 8 gallon but not near full. I will be diving in head first very soon and document the grow here, good or bad. I am sure I will learn a lot and I am also very thankful the heavy weights like @Aqua Man and @Moe.Red have chimed in and offering up their expertise that hopefully will keep my from stumbling too much! Thanks guys!
Yes, but I would also drop the water level in that bucket if you can. Slightly below the net pot is where you want the water level.Thanks Moe.
The system I am using has a larger net pot that does not have the bottom cut off like these. I think they are like 8" across or something like that. I am surprised that they are ready because I figured the roots needed to be much longer.
So would I get this in the net pot and keep it low in the pot and pile the hydroton around it to hold it in place and leave the hydroton level low, then add more as the plant grows? As well, keep the water level higher up into the net pot while the roots are still very short? then lower the water level once the roots are down sufficiently?
