Hey space! Glad to see some people still want to keep this thread up and running
So far I have just been feeding my plants according to the schedule on the
back of the bottle for veg. and Ill probably do the same for flowering since it seems to
be doing just fine. Dark green leaves on all my plants and they look as healthy as can
be. I use Magi-Cal (basically cal-mag just the shop I ordered from delivered the wrong
thing, works just the same though) and will use Sweat Leaf in flowering as additives
for this run. I dont think you need to worry about wrapping the buckets unless its a
DWC. My Hempy buckets are white and some light penetrates so I get algae growth in
the media, but Ive never had any rot or growth on the roots when Ive pulled a few
males and it doesnt seem to hurt anything. Keep us updated on your progress man.

Whats up jm420, I had my Hashberry clone originally in rockwool. After roots started showing I put her in a plastic cup with soil where I intended to keep her, that is untill I found out that all my WW's were male. Once I chopped the males down I thoroughly flushed the perlite/vermiculite medium and allowed it to sit and dry for a few days. When the buckets were somewhat dry I took the HB clone out of the cup, loosened the roots that had begun to circle around the bottom of the cup and stuck it (with the remaining soil) into the bucket and its worked out great since. I wouldnt advise putting any more soil than I did b/c it hold so much more water than the perlite/vermiculite mix so It could make it difficult to judge how often/how much to water/feed. Later.

Would it be OK to use coco nutes in stead of hydro ones?

I couldnt say for sure Hans as I havent used coco the medium or coco nutes but I would imagine coco nutes are formulated to provide plants with nutrients and molecules specific to the ones that the coco medium is lacking in, which could ultimately lead to some sort of deficiency. This is the only thing that I could think of that could go wrong but like Ive said, I have no experience in the coco category at all. I have heard of people making a modified Hempy bucket with coco by filling the bottom two inches, or the reservoir, with pure perlite and filling the rest with a coco/perlite mix and sometimes a few other personal ingredients. With this setup coco nutes would be perfectly fine.

nah man its super easy. You could do a few different thing:

1)Since its such a small space, just use kitty litter trays under each plant.

2)If you wanted to get james bond you could build a tray out of 1x4 or something and line it with plastic to make a big water proof tray that is elevated an few inches off the ground. Then attach some pvc pipe at the bottom and run the pvc out of the area to a collection bucket with a pump or drain.

i usually just dumb out a little water after i water them and i havent had a problem with excess water. My new problem is that the humidity in my flowering box is around 60-70 at nights and im 4 weeks into flowering and im nervous about budrot.

Hey KAMy I just take mine out of the closed and put them over the edge of the sink to let them drain and then just put them back where they were.
