Chillin' in the Shade...
:hi:Greetings fellow farmers! The time has finally arrived… Round 10 begins with some lyrics to set the mood, inspire the mind, and let you know how I feel sometimes…:music

"Can I Live"
Yeah, hah, yeah Roc-A-Fella
We invite you to, somethin epic y'all know?
Well we hustle out of a sense of, hopelessness
Sort of a desperation
Through that desperation, we 'come addicted
Sorta like the fiends we accustomed to servin
But we feel we have nothin to lose
so we offer you, well, we offer our lives, right
What do you bring to the table?
Shady’s Round 10…
I stepped it up another level, meditated like a buddhist
Recruited lieutenants with ludicrous, dreams of
gettin cream let's do this, it gets tedious
So I keep one eye open like, C-B-S, ya see me
stressed right? Can I live?
"My 1st Song"

(Notorious B.I.G. interview)
I'm just, tryin’ to stay above water y'know
Just stay busy, stay workin’
Puff told me like, the key to this joint
The key to staying, on top of things
is treat everything like it's your first project, ya know what I’m sayin?
Like it's your first day like back when you was an intern
Like, that's how you try to treat things like, just stay hungry

(Verse One: Jay-Z)
Uhh, uhh, yes, yes
Y'all wanna know, why he don't stop
Y'all wanna know, why he don't flop
Let me tell you pe-eople why
Came from the bottom of the block I
When I was born, it was sworn, I was never gon' be shit
Had to pull the opposite out this bitch
Had to get my ri-ide on
Eyes on the prize, Shawn knew I had to
Had to had to get these chips
Had to make moves like Olajuwon
Started out sellin’ dimes and nicks
Graduated to a brick
No exaggeration, my infatuation with the strip
Legendary like a schoolboy
Crushin merely nearly every every chick
Heavy shit - that's how schoolboy got whipped
And got left on some "Just Me, Myself and I"
On some Trugoy shit
Had your boys threw place up, to a place of no return
Had to play with fire and get burned
Only way the boy ever gon' learn
Had to lay way in the cut, 'til I finally got my turn
Now I'm on top in the spot that I earned

It's my life - it's my pain and my struggle
The song that I sing to you it's my ev-ery-thing
Treat my first like my last, and my last like my first
And my thirst is the same as - when I came
It's my joy and my tears and the laughter it brings to me
It's my ev-ery-thing

(Verse Two: Jay-Z)
Like I never rode in a limo
Like I just dropped flows to a demo
Like it's ninety-two again and
And I got O's in the rental
Back in the Stu' again, no prob' livin was a whole lot simpler
When you think back, you thought that
you would never make it this far, then you
take advantage of the luck you handed
Or the talent, you been given
Ain't no, half steppin’, ain't no, no slippin’
Ain't no different from a block that's hidden
Gotta get it while the getting's good
Gotta strike while the iron's hot, 'fore you stop
Then you gotta bid it, good riddance
Goodbye, this is my second major breakup
My first was, with a pager
With a hooptie, a cookpot, and the Game
This one's with the stool, with the stage, with the fortune
Maybe not the fortune, but certainly the Fame

It's my life - my pain and my struggle
The song that I sing to you it's my ev-ery-thing
Treat my first like my last, and my last like my first
And my thirst is the same as - when I came
It's my joy and my tears and my laughter it brings to me
It's my ev-ery-thing
Treat my first like my last, and my last like my first
And my thirst like the first song I sang

:rock Alright, let’s get the details out of the way…

Under Current System 6, Pond Master AP-40, JBJ Artica 1/10 HP Chiller, Magnum XXXL 6” AC Hood, 1000W Hortilux Super HPS, 1000W Quantum Digital Dimmable Ballast, ThermoFlo Insulated Duct, 8” Max Fan, Can 50 Carbon Filter, plus miscellaneous equipment and parts

Hydroton in 5.5” net pots

Dutch Master’s Gold Line (Grow A+B, Flower A+B, Zone, Add.27), CalMag, Dyna-Gro Pro-TeKt, HammerHead PK

Growing Technique:
Top, Supercrop, Screen of Green (SCROG)

:whew Well, let’s get this party started… I had to move the bicycle hangers over 6” from the joist in the ceiling and this required a couple kiln dried redwood 2x4’s to attach to the 24” o.c. spacing of the ceiling joists…

Now the Magnum XXXL is right where I want it to be…

Then I pilot drilled and screwed together whitewood 1x4's to create a frame, which I then wrapped and stapled 4 mil plastic sheeting to protect my carpet…

Here’s a quick shot of the hood attached with ProGrip Light Hangers and in the background are the three 240v plus a dual 120v electrical service and metal clad conduit. Also shown is the Quantum Ballast for the UC6 and the Lumatek Digital Dimmable Ballast for the adjacent tent powering Round 9…

The UC6 was set in place last night…

And everything fits perfectly… I measured three times and cut once…

Finally, the last shot before I continue to install the pumps, chiller, ducting, and ultimately plants, which will be five Master Kush x Bubba Kush, and a single White Master Kush to make things interesting… I think I’m gonna need a 90 deg turn to get over the wood…

P.S. Many thanks to Dan at Current Culture, UCMENOW, GoD, and all the bad ass farmers rocking the Under Current… :cool


Alright Shady! Congrats on the bad ass new system. I know you have been looking forward to this one. I know you will work it well! Way to kick it off man!:rauch08:


beautiful brotha!! tag ur it!!! lol.. im riding along for the show.. good luck! not like you need it!!


Don't need a 90/elbow for that wood frame & drain. Instead, get a 3/4" slip to threaded 3/4" (or whatever is equivalent to a garden hose), connect that to where your return dumps into the epicenter & let the return pump do the draining for you. Call Dan @ CC, he'll know what you need. Bon Voyage UC Shady!


Thinks of Stinks
Great way to start the thread Shady! Nice setup and with you at it's helm... You'll be rocking super dank out of it in no time!

Can't wait to see this one unfold.
