negatives DWC adventure....Blue Dream.

Woot woot and welcome all!! negative here and ready to roll out with some DWC goodness. Long time grower here but never in Hydro till last run.....WTF have I been missing! The growth rates were ridiculous and plant was in the best health till I undernuted it and it yellowed early, but you learn....
I did a simple DWC bucket with a GG4 clone. It filled the room nicely touching the walls. I was very impressed at the quality of the lower branches as well. Much better than in my other grows. Very worthy of keeping. Many advantages to this style of growing to.
A couple shots of the GG4 from last run.



She produced some sweet Glue nugs that were so fire.
So excited to run the Blue Dream this way. This style of growing is making me switch 100% to hydro. We will get into room specs and strain history next post. Plus I have some additions to my nutrient line to test out this run.
peace, negative

Lights, controls and such.

If you have seen any of my other threads/diaries you will know my specs and they have not changed much. I am in a roughly 4x5x8 room. I use separate 6 inch in and out fans for air exchange through a carbon scrubber. Dual air cooled hoods with 400 or 600 watt lamps depending on time of year. Summer I run the 400's for obvious reasons. I go mixed spectrum. 1 metal halide, Sun Master Cool Delux, and 1 HPS, Solarmax. I love the mixed spectrum and I feel it gives me better results. Plus I have 2 points of light for better coverage. I keep all equipment out of the room to reduce heat and it keeps it neat and tidy for me.
Here is the cabinet I keep stuff in.
Old picture but things are virtually the same except for the timers. Went all digital lighting controller set up a awhile back.


Light setup, again older picture but all is virtually the same except for carbon scrubber hooked up

The strain is Blue Dream from a mom I have had for 3 years or so. Sourced from a local Medical co-op. Baby pic...5 days from transplant from clone. I have not flowered it yet so really excited to see the results...3 years and not flowered..lol.

I am flowering the mom in a soiless medium at the same time so it will be interesting to see the difference.
peace, negative.

Thanks for that Easy7. hope your day is going well.
I use mostly Advanced Nutrients. I use the old school Sensi Line.
A&B Bloom
Calmag from Bontanicare
Vodoo
Big Bud
B-52
Overdrive
Piranha
Sweet from Bontanicare
Flawless Finish
Last 2 for the first time....
Rhino Skin
Nirvana

I just grow for myself so I am not to concerned with high production. I have been absolutely fing amazed at the growth over soiless. I mean there is NO comparison. It makes me smile to open the door and see the growth shoot up. First time I have ever run BD in hydro. It will be a good learner for me and next time I will kill it.
Anyone with advice or tips feel free to chime in. You do not get better without fails and problems and I am not perfect. Love to hear what anyone has to say. I am total noob at hydro so there's that.....but I do know how to read real well....and I am pretty good at comprehension...lol.
peace, negative.

What I started with...

So here is what we started with. 3 old(3 plus years)moms that had bugs and problems. Cut them way back and did some sprays and other methods. I only use the good stuff like Neem, Azamax, Diatomeceous Eartrh, some SNS products and the like.
5-27-18. GG4 on the left, Blue Dream in the back and a unknown strain on the right.

Funny story on the unknown. Picked up some GG4 cuts and grew them out and ended up with some that were not. So mislabeled cuts...lol. So I just call it Unknown and keep it because it is good and is a heavy yielding Indy.
6-8-18. Making progress. My ghetto scrog tech. Trying to spread these out a bit. On a real tight budget right now so trying to save where I can.

I know your like where is the hydro plant dude....well here she is. She had to veg up a bit in the tent before coming to play with the so called "big girls."
6-15-18. Day 1 in the room under 800 watts. Blue Dream DWC.

Very standard 5 gallon setup with dual outlet air pump and hydroton in a net lid. Pretty basic stuff. She is 10 days old since transplant from clone.
6-20-18. Whole room.

Going along well. Have a spectacular day.
peace, negative.

Nute levels week 2 in Vegetative.

Made a mistake and started at around 1100 PPM and the tips started to curl down...lowered it to about 750 and the new growth was looking much better.
6-27-18. Putting on size. Just starting to tuck her under the canes.

7-2-18...going ballistic 27 days in.

Completely outgrowing the other 3 like they were not even there...WOW!
7-8-18. Whole room.

DWC ftw!!
Couple budsites here....been going with full strength AN nutrients for the soiless and about half for the DWC.

peace, negative.

Some root porn and flip time!!

this was at 10 days in.

Liking what I see.
7-11-18. She is "Beasting"...that's for you Zack.....

7-15-18. Little light on the nutes. Ready for flip today. Very excited. You cannot even see the plants in the back...hydro #1.

I am thinking that 3/4 is about the right strength. Around 900 ppm. I am working with a Hanna meter that has a .7 conversion factor just FYI.

Flip day and celebration time!

So today is the flip. Day zero of 12/12. Celebration time.
From left to right we have some Glue high terp sugar, Lost Cookies cake batter and Mad Misty snap n pull. Cheers dawg.

Cake batter hits soooo hard. Whoa baby.
It is a carpet...I could walk on it in there....lol. LIGHTS OUT!!

Did a small upgrade to my air delivery system...lmao. 1.5 lpm to 25 lpm. Will factor this into nutrient levels. Anything over 1.25 lpm is considered "hyperaerated" so nute levels need to be lowered. I think this might only apply to RDWC but not positive. Doing more research today. Water temps have been sweet considering I do not have a chiller...69 to 71. Roots have filled up the bucket from what I can see. Shes scrogged down so cannot really pull up the lid to root porn out....

Does anyone else get a chub when I say Hyper aerated RDWC covered by Fluence Bioengineering LED's??......mmmmmm baby. I will be back, I need a minute. Will be running that type of system someday.
peace, negative.

Some thoughts on growing.

I really believe in environment first. If you get that right the rest will go EASIER. I did not say easy, I said easier. You are handcuffing yourself right from the start if you do not have it right.
Lighting is important. What type not so much, but the correct amount for your space and spectrum is VERY important.
Strain. Cannot stress how important this is. No matter how good of a grower you are you cannot get a plant to express more of itself than its genetics will allow. You can grow it perfect, but if it is ditch weed...it is ditch weed...lol. Plus with all the different micro varietals rolling about its pretty easy to get one you really love or works for you.
Cultivation method is really a personal preference. Depends on what you are willing to deal with. All methods will get you meds in the end. Lots of ways to get to New York if ya get my meaning...
Nutrients...go with what you like and know.
Mixing up my nutrient change out to bloom goodies this PM.

Went 3/4 strength so about 1.87 EC or 1310 PPM. Nice chilly water temps.

While mixing up nutes hitting on some nearly 3 year old Black Skunk outdoor buds. Fall of '15 harvest. Not much to look at except up real close. Still packs a good punch in a bong.

Here is the plant it came off of. I was impressed.

Off to rip some more dabs with a touch o the Black Skunk.
peace, negative.
