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.
