    Also, just out of curiosity, how much silica are you adding to your maxibloom? I'm going to be running the same nutes (silica + KISS) since so many people in the CMH thread insist on the silica. If it IS maxibloom causing the pink roots, I'll be able to confirm it very soon.

      Yes it is just to raise the light to the right height. I had the fan laying around and I set it in a bucket to get it out of the way and I noticed how well it fit so I took the cover off of the fan to see if I could bolt the light to it and it fit.

      ///EDIT/// - Sorry Anti I missed your second question, I have almost stopped using the silica blast because I was using what I felt was a lot of it in my last grow. I am really trying to KISS with this round. I was using 2ml per gallon when I changed out the system and 4ml per gallon when adding juice to the system which was every other day and progressed to every day. Silica Blast will also raise your pH quite a bit so be ready for that. I can post my feed schedule from last round if you would like.

            Very nice setup! Def Subscribed.
            I was wondering what the diameter & height of your cage is.

            Thats great your bleach baby survived. Probably a testament to you doing everything else right (aside from the bleach)

              this isn't punk music or indie films...it's a produce; the best of them all. Me and every person on here puts time, money, energy and love into our gardens; should I choose to part with the fruits of my labor...I (and anyone else) should feel free to charge, trade or gift it as we see fit.

                It is 77" from the floor and there is a 1000w HPS on top and a 400w CMH on the bottom. My plan is to build another 6 plant system in the other corner of the room so I can run an every 5 weeks perpetual harvest. This will be the first time I have run this system so I do not know what the pull will be, I am hoping to do at least a pound per pod.

                    My plan is to veg for 5 weeks and flower for 10 in two pods so every 5 weeks a pod is harvested and refilled with vegging plants. This is my first round using my new veg system and it has taken some time to get it working well but the plants should be moving over this weekend.

                      Great looking setup Major.
                      Glad I got in before lift off.
                      Do all the gals have purple roots or is it just one?

                        Thanks man, I am hoping to put on a good show. I got my light blocker material to make my new door today but I still need to go get a bunch of velcro.

                        All the roots that I have seen have the purple tinting to them
