    DabLab 2.0 - Rebuilt, Dialed, Clean 4000W COCO DTW AUTOFEED

    Hey guys, I'm back. After a short delay in which my plants became extremely overvegged, I am back at it. For those of you who saw my first grow here, thanks for stopping by again.. For those who didnt...

    Background
    ------------------
    -Started 4000W vertical stadium grow with 60 clones
    -Had cloning issues and veg issues which caused only 12 plants of the 60 to root and caused the grow to take 6 months from start to finish
    -yielded 4.5 lbs of heady A++ Bud
    -2.5 lbs larfy lower buds and sugar trim which was turned into Dabs
    -Overall it was a success, but the room needed upgrades and i needed to learn how to clone

    Lessons Learned
    --------------------
    1.) Aero Cloners dont work for me! Harder to control all of the variables IMO. Different shades of green tho for you aero whores
    2.) More focus on veg room limits time between harvests (should be none)
    3.) Watering by hand every day sucks
    4.) Window Air conditioners are a bitch if they arent installed in anything remotely resembling a window
    5.) Box Fans suck
    6.) Quickly assembled 2x4 framing, ghetto electrical, and panda plastic is not safe nor will it enable a stable environment inside the room. the plastic didnt do shit for insulating the room from the hot garage (which was made hotter by the A/C exhausting into it)


    Improvements
    ---------------------

    1.) Built an air exchange box and attatched an 8 inch can fan to extract hot air from blowing into the garage.





    2.) New passive air intake
    3.) Foam insulation with silver lining on the inside. It's extremely reflective and seems to do a very good job creating a stable environment
    4.) Hung the exhaust fan at the top of the room by the lights and have a fans blowing hot air towards the exhaust

    5.) Put climate controller (with photocell) on the inside of the room instead of the outside

    Which brings me to my biggest upgrade... Irrigation!

    Irrigation
    -----------

    Watering was a pain in the ass with 12 plants every day, and i wanted to use smaller pots with more frequent waterings to get those fatty nugs.. So i built an auto irrigation using a 100 gallon trash can as a reservoir, and horseshoe dripper manifolds...







    A 1200 GPH Pump is connected to a cycle timer with 30 seconds on and 4 hours off during the day cycle so 3 30 second waterings.

                Rock and Roll.
                I used to grow dope... now I cultivate medicinal marijuana.

                My wife is very ill and I would kill without hesitation if it could bring her relief, so maybe growing a few plants isn't that bad.

                  I'm a little nervous about the canopy control myself.. The plants were about 4 feet tall when flipped and the nightmare is a real stretcher. The ld and headband don't stretch very much at all though

                          They are legit as fuck. I'm lOving them.

                          I'm using gh Lucas formula with 1 g / gal epsom... No calmag. Also silica blast and hygrozyme along with drip clean.

                          As far as dab advice....

                          Take your shit to someone else with the right equipment and let them blow their own house up. It's dangerous as shit I'll stick to growing they can do the blowing
