8k coco grow show

Hey all. Figured I'd start a thread on my new room. Been years since I did a diary here. I'm always still learning, and I like to have a place to ask questions and share tricks and methods.

Experienced grower of 20+ years. But this is my second time ever using coco. I'm amazed, and sold and this is the only way I'll ever grow indoors.

Doing the " coco tree's " method. Multiple feeds at low EC. Every 2 hours once roots are established. I keep things simple and never over complicate things with my nutes. I use floranova at half strength throughout the whole grow. I also use OG biowar 24 hour brewed tea in every rez change as well as some boogie brew in there , and I believe that is a game changer. No RA's. And i also have killed Russets in my last run with ease with foliar at lights out. I don't even worry about mites now.. harsh chems are a thing of the past. Best product I've ever used.

8 1000's, sealed room. Co2, 48 plant's, 6 plants a light. 2 gal pots

My last run I harvested a month ago, I got 13 pounds 2 ounces of pineapple chunk, And that's with losing 3 plants because the clones didn't take. And having about 4 runt plants, and losing 3, a week before I harvested, because I had horrible light burn that really did some damage. Plants were just starting to die all the sudden. I really misjudged my distance, and had to climb over my canopies in the middle of flower to Mount the lights all the way to the top of the ceiling. So i think i did well with all those factors.

I lowered the tables 18 inches. Added 3 new raptors to replace 3 old hoods I had in there that were giving out too much heat. And I'm leaving the lights all the way up. There is massive light in this room. No need to raise them as the plants grow.

Here is some shots of the last run.

Edit. I'm now using Mills nutrients.

This is today at 7 days veg. Strains are mountain apple OG on the left. And pineapple chunk on the right. Mountain Apple is sour OG × deadhead OG. It's insane and smells like deep apples and kush. I'm the only one with this strain besides my friend crossed it. Massive yield as well. Should be a fun one.




Feeding 3 times in 18 hours at the moment. Shooting for 2 pounds a light this time . Now that I got my first run ironed out with the issues.

Awesome!! I'm building the tables you posted in the DIY section right now, so easy!! Could you give a little more detail about the drip system, such as pump and other details, I'm gonna be hand watering at first but definitely trying to get a drip system asap. I was looking at octabubblers and expensive jet pumps also but maybe your system is much cheaper.

Hey man. I have a eco plus 330gph pump. I use a DNE timer as well. It's more than a drip. It's slow but I like it slow so I get optimal water absorption. Takes about a minute and 45 seconds to see run off. Usually when I'm at the point of watering every 2 hours, I have to make sure my first watering is about 3 minutes. Then it's a minute 15 seconds every 2 hours after.

Here is the outside shed that feeds the room. I have a pond chiller that's set to 64 degrees. My RO water storage is the garbage cans, and the 50 gallon is my nutrients rez. My friend won a storage unit some years ago that had 2 of these beast chillers. They are like 3 grand new. He gave them to me for free. So I have 2 of them now. I lucked out..!

3 days later from the last pic. They are exploding.!! Doing CA-25 foliars and also seaweed extract with biowar tea foliar as well. Game changers
Thinking I'm going to try Mills nutrients when I go into flower. Has anyone had experience with mills.? It's either that or canna coco. I wanna try something new . Been reading some great stuff on mills .

Great setup. Coco for the win - I'm totally won over as the best way to grow indoors.
