My @Bilber style plant finally touching water. It’s an Auto on week 3 today. I figured if I’m gonna try something new why not make it harder with an auto. I have a BluTerple in a small cup still gonna leave it on standby incase the auto doesn’t work outView attachment 2123926View attachment 2123927
Topped it today as well
now add a pump and air-stone($20.00) and they will flourish, kratky wont cut it on Cannabis! this method is outdated, it is actually the oldest form of Hydro, sorry it doesn't work (well) for cannabis! Think of growing something in a stagnant pond, Ive been in Hydro for over 15 years, its the Oxygenated Water and the humidity zone above the water level!
Hempy Buckets are a better version if your still trying not to use power?, and it actually works very well for cannabis... (research: hempy buckets)
Im not throwing shade but Ive already done all of these methods 20 years ago as I was stepping into Hydro...
I think you guys are tip toeing towards hydro... have fun, experiments are what get you to the endgame - need any tips/tricks when your ready to go hydro let me know glad to help!

1 is Kratky the 1 with the arrow is a hempy bucket with a 3” reservoir of round stone. The 2 all the way to the right are in sand and stone and the other 2 are in coco husk. All 6 are just experiments. And thank you for offering help it’s always appreciated

Chop.....you are very awesome! I definitely appreciate your offer...!...you mentioned that in my thread....thank you for that....Kratky is a age old way of growing.....usually vegetables.....now....a few other attempts at this way of growing that has failed many, many times.....you are probably 200% right.....but this kids gotta find out the hard way.....and truth be told......I was originally going to run rdwc.....but I didn't have a pump and all that.....so far.....the Kratky Method is set it and forget it.....

nah man, your following the path of many growers.. I ran soils from late 70's to the early 90's, then i experimented my way into hydro...once you get your head around it, its all gonna click! Once i got it, I watched cannabis go into high gear, 25% faster growth, never knew what she was capable of... dumped my soil in the backyard garden never looked back! let me know when your ready! right on!

No joke.....I can only imagine what a true rdwc or the like, could do.......I'm kinda speechless with how the Kratky is growing.......I think I would be in trouble with a true setup.....my veg area is small......until flowering area opens up.....then that gets turned to temp veg.....I don't think I could manage the explosive growth that I believe would happen.......

I've been doing RDWC for a while.
I've used 5gal and 13gal buckets and reservoirs. Using Cultured Solutions 4part nutrients. Run as sterile system. I find it easier to maintain. Have not had any issues with root rot or water control. Fewer water changes too. I've grown autos for many years in both soil and hydro, indoor and out. My results have consistently been in hydro without a tent.

A little tie down & more topping action on the BluTerple Plant #1 every top got clipped
IMG 0133

IMG 0134

Plant #2 clipped the top on everything but the center 2 just copying the bigger 1
IMG 0135

Plant #3 the self topped mutant topped 1 head afew days ago and the other head today
IMG 0138

Plant #4 was a failed FIM and has been in a tiny cup for to long I transplanted it yesterday
IMG 0137

Failed FIM on one of the auto but turned into a nice cluster of branches just in time for pre-flower

You might find this article about increasing bud sites interesting


Personally, I've tried tying branches to train them and increase yield.
I'm too lazy. Once stems are strong enough, I'll bend almost to the breaking point. I find that this helps to increase bud sites that are closer to the light source.

Yeah, like that. I like the green supports!
Got them on Amazon there pretty cheap. I like those adjustable clip more than the other solid clips. It makes it easier to gradually bend them I use tiedowns because those branches aren’t long enough for the clips.




Some good articles that cover all the bases of plant training. RQS has some really good articles about everything & anything. Google what you’re looking for then put RQS at the end and boom.

Thanks! Yes, RQS is quite a resource for information. I've used their site a lot.

I have had to "monster crop" many times, its never pretty, now you got another 30+ days of reveg! they will look like freaks when they reveg, notice the single blade and 3 blade leaves, and then they will just snap out of it! Once they reveg they seem to grow like beasts too! (then you can clone, and/or reverse for pollen/seed stock) good luck preserving that pheno...(pictured are reveg fruity pebbles og)
