    If you aren't capturing the run-off, you should get that power strip off the floor. I mount mine to the sides and ceilings of my tents. I see now it's elevated a few inches... not good enough imo. what happens when a hose comes loose or something... safety first.

      Yeah your right, I've been meaning to fix that. Where it is ATM is dry, the water never goes near there and there is very little run off. I'll get that sorted next time I call around. Can't be too careful.

        Beautiful set up mate, nice and simple. I am currently changing over to vert with less plants and this definitely could be something to consider, full of WIN! mate

        If you still need something to control the watering timings, then get you a TMU

        Looks like this

        Read more here:

        https://www.ukgroworks.co.uk/ukgrowo...g-Unit/ID/3292

        Basically you replace your existing plug from pump with this and then plug it into the timer instead, it has a frequency range on in seconds but you can also buy one that does minutes to.

        Just wondering how is the run water passing those fans, are they not sucking it up at all?

        Anyway, these should be some monsters mate! Looking forward to your progress

          The beauty of the cannabis trade is that it, while providing the high risk/reward levels of any profitable illegal business, unlike most other illegal businesses is one that can be done without in any way compromising one's moral standing or principles. The provision of cannabis to the existing market is, almost uniquely among illegal business endeavors, potentially not tainted by the harm it does to others. It can be done in a completely ethical way- even if it isn't always, it can be.

              Check that root system......

              Dude I was already sold it's just my food bill has doubled and feeding your way would triple it again and my curent stadium has 144 plants in.....

              I am looking into blumats in the near future if I stick the stadium setup out.....

              If your growth rate stays as it's been your going tomhave some monsters

                Looks like you`ve come up on closeta optimum feed conditions on those smaller pots HGO....

                When coco`s allowed ta dry out between feeds , there`s a root explosion as is perfectly shown in your update pics.....

                Whadda yas think about their health in the higher humidity conditions.....Plants are speakin for themselves huh ?.......

                Bro...You`re KILLIN it.....Major respect , and bigtime props ta Bush Dr for said design.......

                Got a growbro on da left coast that does 3 lbs per 1KW regular with tha Giesel , so here`s hopin she shows off for yas this run.....

                You`ll definitely have your hands full with them Cheese bushes as dense as they`re gettin BEFORE the flip and stretch....Thanks again fer tha killer update Bro......

                Now FLIP dem bitches before yas REALLY lose control....LOL....I see severe shaved legs with inside rapin and pillagin goin on in the not too distant future.....

                Teach them bitches who`s da Boss.....Thin em out early once flipped so they won`t stall/stunt/need recovery time , and make em perform for yas Bro.....

                All the shapin/prunin , and trimmin`s can be cuts fer da next run YOU know.....Oh!.....Fergot the question on cuttin grow nutes.....

                It was always strain dependent HGO , but generally with hybrids that stretched alot I left em in till they started swellin and cut the micro way down a couple weeks later , but with indica dominant varieties that don`t stretch as much , I left the grow in all the way through till finish , but in way lower ppm`s across da board.......

                Rarely went over 750 ppm`s with any strain I ever ran......Heath sold me on less is more many yrs ago.......

                Weed dougnutz in coco FTW.......DHF..........

                  Sorry to hijack your thread HGO but as the questions have been raised and you blamed me, ye bampot, here's my replies

                  other options:
                  * hand watering to eliminate hoses = reduce yield by 10% min unless you're prepared for 5 feeds a cycle at peak flower, the feed has to be fed gently so it doesn't wash through, say 1 minute/plant = at least 20 minutes by the time you've started and cleared up, 5 times a cycle = 100 minutes a cycle ....not for me

                  * sealing the bottom catch tray so that run-off is used by the plants, and not wasted
                  = 1) N/P/K of what? Fresh feed will definitely contain what your plant wants, add some recycled and you're adding what it's already decided it didn't want, why should it want a stronger feed of something it's already decided it didn't need
                  =2) Removal of salts and cleansing of roots
                  =3) No chance of spreading pythium from 1 plant to the whole lot as I found out, this

                  Went to this in 5 days, all the other roots are dead so it's just the 'main' ones left

                  Run off can successfully be used in the vegetable garden in the summer with old coco, we grew enough beans/peas/squash to feed 5 people


                  * placing wheels onto the bottom catch (wooden tray build), and cutting off corners to make an octogon-or circular-shaped tray, so that it can be spun around. this will give you access to the all of the plants all of the tyme, w/out restricted access to the far corners - why bother, you'll tangle your drip lines, you shouldn't rotate them for 'even coverage' or they'll end up with airy buds and after 4 weeks you don't want to be moving them about

                  * lowering one of the lites, so that they become staggered and off-set. this will provide greater overall coverage & make it so they dont shine in to ea other. plants like different angles of lite.... without computer modelling the light waves could actually interfere with each other, so let's Keep It Simple

                  2cents

                  keep having fun
                  Good to see you paying that much attention mistress, are you going to try it?

                      Last day of veg

                      ~Shhh~ - Hey man, thank you for the great post man, that TMU is exactly what I need, it would solve a lot of problems. I'm going to order it right now!! The fan doesn't suck up any water, the fan has legs and is around a foot off the ground. I hope you hang around.

                      AOD2012 - Hi bro, I use 20% to coco. But I also add hydroton balls at the base of my pots to help with drainage. I also have to put hydroton on top of my coco to stop evaporation.

                      ambertrich - Head over heels bro, head over heels , actually I might just kick out the nagging bitch of a girlfriend heeeheeee. Yeah the roots have exploded big time, maybe the rhizotonic helped 'em out, it didn't last long though.

                      laylow - Hey bro, sorry I keep forgetting how much feed you actually go through each watering. Monsters? I hope so, just as long as I've got monster buds I'm happy. Major trim-job is going down today. Thank you man!

                      DHF - Hey man, yeah I think I'm feeding perfect ATM. I could up it a bit buy why fix what's not broken. TBH man when I went up to the grow this week I was shocked to see how much they had grown, the pics just don't cut it. I think it has something to do with the humidity. The humidity has went up all of a sudden by itself. The only thing that I can put it down to is the bigger plants, it must be the higher rate of respiration that's putting the extra moisture in the air because everything else has stayed the same.

                      Nice one, I found out that I don't have giesel in that growroom but I have her in the cloner now, she and SSSDH just popped roots in 6 days so I'm dying to see what I can do with her. Yeah I'm going up to do that trim job after my Sunday dinner....that's if I don't smoke after it and fade away LOL yeah I'm sharping my blade for these bitches, they gonna feel tha pain

                      Weed donuts, en-route

                      Bush Dr - Excellent post, as per usual. Sorry for landing you in it....not lol Hey man is that pythium in your roots spread by the run off?

                        1) nice set up, as usual HGO.
                        2) that root porn was insane, I am very impressed.
                        3) Blockhead f2's, now I am really jealous, I have wanted to run some blockhead for a while. I hope you make a tonne of those f2's.

                        good to see you got the SSSDH back too!
