That Root Pron is impressive. Damn you seem to be having extremely excellent growth with that UC system. Your plants are really stacked up and the roots are healthy. I bet you are Loving it!

I like how your documenting the amount of top offs and such. This is going to be really informative. Right on Shady! Keep it up!

Thx HeLLMuTT! I said fuck it, caved in, and started smoking this past week... Everything is smooth, tastey, and potent... :evilgrin

Now that's the best update I've heard in a while! :smiley_joint:

With all of your skills, and all of your fine strains,
it would be a crime not to stay on top of the quality control of your masterpiece and taste a little:thinking

I'm diggin your master kush crosses you got going there. They look very happy in the UC.
Looks like you are already doing great with the water culture.:rauch08:

Shady’s Round 11… UC Top Off’s and the Flip

Looking good shady. Love the root porn.
Thx leadsled! I do to... :mmm


Nice work Shady, gotta love the very detailed reports! Keep it up!
Thx bro! I took a bit of a break from posting, but I'm ready for the show and have been taking notes as usual... :nerd


Real clean use of a limited space! I'm totally interested in seeing how a lil scrog action kicks out in your set up! Your space is (size wise) almost identical to my currently abandoned home garden, and I've thought a time or two about droppin' in a small UC and lettin' her hunt.
All successes to you man, hope it makes some nice weight for ya.

-by the way, cured meds look like fire bro!
Thx for the kind words lilredwagon... I'm sure a scrog would have been perfect if I hadn't been too lazy to put up the screen... :itwasntme

Many thanks for your help BG! Yeah only a 1K over the girls, but it's been dimmed down to 500W since the beginning... A mover would be interesting, but I've got vaulted ceilings at diff angles... :thinking


Damn Shady you got those girls lookin so happy!
I can almost smell those nugs from here!
Your So Cal Master Kush x Bubba looks incredible!
Beautiful work brotha!:pimp:
Dank! Dank! Dank!
Thx waayne! I'm just hoping I can keep up with GoD... He got a jump start on me, but it's nice to compare at the end... Damn, I need a CO2 monitor and then I'll be golden... until then it's natural CO2 from me singing to my girls... :character0111:


Looking real Nice!
Thx Baddog! How are your ladies looking? :wondering


Casey Jones + Root porn = real porn. :X

+ master x bubba = gang bang.
Thx brah! Your room is like a porn star award show... :smiley_joint:

I have only grown the Master x Bubba and have done so in soil, hydroton, coco, and soil plus coco which is my shady medium... The White Master and White Urkle are the originals from seed. We shall see what happens after the dust settles and nugs are cured though... :time


damn shady do your damn thing.

Those roots are looking very nice too.

Also how long have those guys been vegging?

stu :joint:
Thx Stu! I vegged these bad girls for over a month in the UC, but they've all been vegging for several months before that in my ebb 'n flow tray... It's nice to finally flip the switch... :flower


How are things coming along big guy?
Really well... I think I've got these girls dialed in and as healthy as can be for bloom... :)


^^what he said....everything a ok? updates pls lol
Everything couldn't be better... well except for me being lazy in updating this thread and working in the grow room... ;)

Ok, so I vegged for over a month without a single res change… It was beyond time for the flip which happened on 2/12/11. I started by pumping out as much as I could from the system and about ¾ of a gallon remained in each bucket. I then proceeded to dump in about 10 gal of RO and the new Bloom nutes which were mixed in a 50 gal res. To start I installed a float valve for the RO supply…

Then I used a 400 gph pump during the mixing of each nutrient…
http://i1083.invalid.com/albums/j390/ShadyUnderCurrent/UCResChangetoBloom8.jpg

Since I’m well under the recommended dosage from Dutch Master’s nutrient calculator, I’ve started with 2 ml/gal of CalMag, then after a few minutes I added DM’s Gold Range Flower A…

With the pump still running freely and mixing the nutes, I waited a few minutes and then added DM’s Gold Range Flower B…
http://i1083.invalid.com/albums/j390/ShadyUnderCurrent/UCResChangetoBloom10.jpg

Then came the big decision and I decided to use AquaShield and omit Zone for now…
http://i1083.invalid.com/albums/j390/ShadyUnderCurrent/UCResChangetoBloom11.jpg

Unfortunately I didn’t add an airstone to the top off res and ended up pumping out the remaining nutes since they began to smell a bit funky… Tomorrow I’ll install the airpump and two airstones. Last, but certainly not least, I finally added the reservoir adapter along with a ball valve that feeds the float valve in the Epicenter. Also I used gorilla tape and an irrigation box to be slightly higher than the Epicenter’s float valve. The 50 gal res is very stable against the back wall…

P.S. I also got an inline filter, but couldn't install it without draining the system completely and removing the return PVC manifold from the last two buckets... I will definitely install it and may use PVC in lieu of the flexible hose on the next round...
