Hand watering lots of plants is hard work, fair play to you mate... don’t think my back could handle it these days!!

I'm only just managing it, on my knees in there distributing 125 litres of water a litre at a time.
I kept getting a cramp in my ribs the other night with all the lifting and twisting while bent over.
Hopefully it will all be worth it.

Its always worth it mate...

Just think you could be lying somewhere in the Caribbean in the coming months scratching your coconuts

I also hear you on the hand feeding.. I am using the IWS at the moment for the draining part.. At least your not in coco and then you would know what pain is my man with all that hand feeding once or twice a day then having to deal with the run off

Enjoy the rest of your weekend

2 friggin hours I was in there tonight and only managed to trim and cane half of the plants before my legs and back went numb.
Another 2 hours tomorrow night it is then.

It has given me a bit of extra room and watering will be easier with all the bottom growth out of the way.

Once you get the rest of the girls staked and the bottom thirds off its plain sailing really...

Are you using a pump and watering wand for feeding? if not it makes the job a hell of a lot easier.. It will not be to long before you see that light at the end of the tunnel...

A pump and watering wand? What this magic you speak of lol.
Nah I'm using a 0ne litre jug and dispensing from 25litre Jerry cans..
I didn't even get to trim the other half last night as when I went in they needed watering. There's only so long I can stand being in the tent.
Will get them Finnished tonight.

Its already a lot easier to water the plants I've tidied up.
I'm going to look for the watering wand though.

Good grief man your using a jug? your on the path to suicide if you keep that up. Jesus i feel your pain then, your body will end up S shaped if you keep that up. Labour of love is it? lol

Get your self a watering wand you can pick one up for roughly a tenner mate, B&Q or any half decent garden centre will have one.

Then get your self a submersible water pump, the first one i bought was Hailea HX 6650 "Chinese shit" cost 20 quid or something it lasted me over 4 years. During the summer i purchased a pond sump pump for 25 euro from Aldi it moves over 700 litres per hour. All these pumps have 13mm connectors on them and they go up to 19mm.

Last but not least get your self a 120 litre black bin and a roll of garden hose "12.5 mm - 13mm" now simply connect one end of the garden hose to the pump which will be submersed in your bin "nutrient mix" and then simply connect the other to your watering wand and of ya go mate. you can sit on your hunkers in the middle of your room and be able to access all your plants from that position using your wand, its how i use to feed my garden, i could feed 40 plants in 12 litre pots of coco in less than one hour mate.

I avoided my local grow shop for the submersible pump because he was asking for silly prices, check out the local garden centres for a sump pump, its what they use in garden ponds. Though your local grow shop might even have them at a better price than what my one charges

Lol I work with the tools given lol. This grow is funded by another. I will mention the watering wand to him but to tell you the truth now I've Finnished lollipopping watering ain't an issue and seeing as we're going hydro next time i will just struggle through this next 8-9 weeks.

Ive got long orangutan arms and I can easily reach all plants now there's no bottom growth.
I lifted intake tonight too and ducting which has given me an extra ft of room along the sides of tent
Shuffled the plants and lights,moved floor fans and things look a lot better.

I will snap off a picture tomorrow but because of the layout I find it hard to get the whole room in. As I said before I've a 3m x 3m tent in a 3.4x3.2 shed,not much room to manoeuvre at all.

I gotta say though I've come a long way in the last couple of years. My plants look great with not a blemish on the leaves at all. Going from struggling to keep 4 plants in perfect health to 36 looking like super models is an accomplishment for me and I pat myself on the back everytime I open that tent and I'm greeted by the sight.

I just hope it carries on this path through flower. I'm hoping for 100-120 oz but Ive learnt not to count chickens.
