U C Truth's 8,000 watt 16 bucket medicinal grow

I will attempt to give a play by play of the grow from day 7 of veg on with descriptions and pictures.....

1. We are using the full house and garden line nutrients, along with Great White as a crown feed. In addition we foliar feed with Liquid Light from Dutch Master and Wet Betty just as the lights go off from week 2 till 4....

2. We run 18 hours of lights for 4 weeks...

3. Our Strain is Purple-AK 47 started in Rockwell Cubes

4. One 3 ton ac Set to stay at a constant 85, two 1/2 hp chillers set at 68 degrees

5. CCH20 System

6. CO2 at a constant 1200ppm

7. Changes nutrients every 7days as to constantly increase ppm's.
1st week set ppm set at 450ppm
2nd week set ppm at 450ppm
3rd week set ppm at 550ppm in system and 800ppm in resivour as to increase steadily as nutrients are needed up to about 750ppm by end of week 3
8. Whole lotta love and care!!!


If anyone has anyone input or suggestions I am opening to hear anyones thoughts...

why change nutes every 7 days I change when plants need it usally 3 times from start to finish..Thats alot of waisted nutes .You should mount your air pump out side the room..Other then that set up looks good..JACK
 
Day 14 room


Day 14 plant



Anyone have any thoughts on a filter for the UC system I used this one and screwed a ton of 1/4 in holes in the screen of the filter as to not block the water flow but help block hydroton pieces and or roots possibly....:joint:
 
Jack,
I have read a ton of your post and defiantly respect your game.... My thought on changing nutes is fresh water is fresh water, I fill two 8 bucket 13 gallon systems then put about 40 gallons of nuts in the resivour for both systems to share. This of course is the amount used for the first week or two and I increase how many gallons I put in resivour as necessary later in veg.... On a side note our water comes out at 80ppm I am not using a RO system do u think with my ppm's as low as they are would using a RO system make a difference?

whats the reason to mount the pump outside the room is it becasue it is lower co2 air or heat?

the purpose of the air pump is to put oxygen into the water. if it's in the grow room, you'll be pumping your CO2 into the water.

Squeezed 8kw in there? Holy fuck I can't wait to see the nugs. Bet they can be thrown through a glass window pane all said and done!

I've got my pumps like yours and don't see anything wrong with the plants.

Booyah......looks great.

I tend to agree with JMO, let the plants exchange the nutes and let your top off res increase the ppm's for you......lots less waste and you won't need to reinvent the nutes each week.

For sure. I've heard of pH shift when this goes on but haven't seen it personally.

To my knowledge a byproduct of photosynthesis is Oxygen, must make it in the water as well. ;)

I don't know that it makes a difference however moving outta the room is not that hard for me so I'm thinking why not.... I might even hook it up to an oxygen mask!:fighting0087: J/k
 
Nice cant wait, you grabbed the 8xl? where they recommend running 1kw for every 2 plants sites.

Interested to see what the yields are like.

How big is the room?

and can we get shots to see how you did the light layout?
