      I made all my drain lines 1". They have a nice 1" tub drain that fits very well on my 5g buckets. They are $3.69 a piece I think.

        Looking great aero. Lurked in your first thread,was worried with everyone else after the little vaca, but it is good to hear you are ok. Definitely going to rock it soon. Keep it green homey.

        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.

            Well done

            I think I got everything but lets double check...

            3/4" fittings? -...name brand?? (plumbing department I am guessing?)
            1- 8w pump in reservoir feeding custom manifold...is for top feeding?
            what pump is slowly moving the water?

            bleach- ? spoons per gallon? how often?
            bayer advanced pest products -Narnia?

            did I miss any tricks...?...yoda

              Hi Aero been sneaking around for a while here at ICM and followed ur previous grow from a-z as I will with this one.
              Just ment to say kudos for ur last pull and g-luck with this round. And well tbh ur a big part of why I finally joined cause I might have some questions comming ur way in a few months regarding DWC - if u donĀ“t mind that is.

              Oh also since u gonna be tinkering at ur drains anyway - why not add some screen in front of each drain hole to prevent clogging?

              keepem comming - subbed

                Good news, looks like the grow is starting tonight! Someone gifted me a rack of clones and I picked up all the 3/4" fittings today to mod the drains.

                I took the day off to fit the new drains and select the clones..

                Here are the choices:

                LA Confidential
                Hindu Kush X Blueberry
                Romulan
                Valley OG
                Romulan Blueberry (different cut than last run)

                I need to select 6 of these because the two Magenta99 ladies already claimed seats in this run..

                  Sounds like everything is coming together!

                  I've run the same cut of LA Confidential on & off for 6 years now. She doesn't do well in multi-strain grows because she vegges so slowly. She's the most unique ganj I've ever grow in terms of vegging needs and growth patterns. She'll need 3-4 months of veg time to finish at a similar size to the others, assuming you're still planning on giving them about 2 months of veg time. My buddies & I call her "The Great Oak Tree" because she vegges so slowly and the branches are so stiff & hard to train. Great product though. Just thought you should know in case you haven't run LAC before.

                  After watching your last grow I built myself a "mini-donut". . . can't wait to see another run!

                    Whatever you do, try to keep the strain that is most similar to the Magenta 99. We run similar systems, and I love not having to worry about the different needs etc... Imagine what you woulda pulled on that first run mono-cropped!

                      Better late than never I guess. I will be watching from back here. Best of luck with this run man, glad to have you back.

                            The 3/4 fittings are made by Hydro Farm and I picked them up at local grow store. They don't have them at Home Depot.

                            The 8 watt pump was last run feeding one bucket, this run Im using a 40 watt Beckett pond pump to feed all 8 buckets.. The water is slowly moved back to the res by gravity through the 3/4 lines.

                            Bleach, I use around 5 drops per gallon, I add a few drops to the res when I don't smell a faint odor of bleach when removing the lid to the res..

                            Bayer products: Im using Bayer advanced to treat for root aphids since the clones are of unknown origin.

                            Bayer Advanced treats everything except spider mites for these I use Bayer Complete. These can be found at most stores including Home Depot.

                              Can you clarify the Bayer as this is what I have and it only has clover mites listed for mites.



                              I personally am using abamectin for mites currently. 1/4 tsp per gallon. It is sold by the quart for $100 and will last you forever. It kills the eggs and adults. But I think it is good to switch around to prevent immunity in the mites to one product.

                                The Bayer bottle you pictured is the one I use to kill root aphids.. I'm pretty sure the Bayer I used for mites said complete up in the red portion of the label instead of advanced. I will have to check the bottle and let you know...
