im thinking this cut in a PPK would be a commercial croppers wet dream. this plant is 4x4 but not all the way full on the canopy and in less than 2 gal of media(loose rockwool) i may devote a large portion of the building just for her. she is Harambe from ethos collective out of CO. limited release seeds.

ive got my 12 top sites already made up. gonna order my buckets, pumps and tubing/fittings as soon as these ladies come down and dry up. lots to do. been building my ghetto drying racks. 1" hardware cloth with bamboo supports and a fuck ton of wooden laundry clips to individually hang branches one by one. i would love to whole plant hang but i dont have the room and fear the mold.

soon i will be back among the PPK crew!

......oh and i forgot to mention thats under only 600w of COB LED

FIRST-TIME GROWER HERE. Just finished my first grow/harvest and if D9 doesn't mind, I would now like to show his guests the power of PPK:

Here's my Harvest Photoshoot Album

Here's a "drone view" of my single plant canopy (Goji OG btw)

Here's the same plant chopped up and on the drying rack (anyone wanna guess yield? )


This plant was vegged for 2 months. LST'd, Topped twice and Flowered for about 85 days. I am one happy camper. Did i mention this is my first time growing a friggin' plant?

HUGE TO D9 FOR CREATING SUCH A DAMN-NEAR-FOOL-PROOF, BORING-YET-FUCKING-AWESOME SYSTEM!!!

So I'm sure I am being lazy... been reading on and off for days.
I think these 7g set ups may be too big for me. I'm open to growing trees. I grow in 5g hempies now and end up with 7 footers. Just a long ass veg.
In my coco I let it go through wet dry cycles in veg to stimulate root growth so I can water heavy in flower. I can get by with 1 feed a day with these trees in flower.
My worry is having a root system that can handle these pulse feedings.
I have 11 ft ceilings, trees would help with plant count. Thinking a system with 5 sites in flower n 5 in veg. Would like to stay perpetual though.
Am I naive in thinking that 7g of media is a lot to fill in a 2 month or less veg? If not would a 5g media system be the ticket, and if so is there any builds I could follow?
Also, I'm running Jack's as of now in tempt buckets. Mixing from pre made stock solution w cal nit, 1mg silica 1mg drip clean a g. My stock of Jack's gets all sorts of crap floating.
Thinking on jumping on with your regimen.
Am I right in understanding you use just Jack's, calnit, and Epsom?
What ratio do I need to mix these at? I'm down to do the reading if I could get a helpful direction as to where I can find the info as I'm sure it has been discussed.
Thank you, and I am sorry if I am asking knuckle head crap.

Hi Earl,

I've been using Jack's Hydro 5-12-26 + calcinit + tap water (I'm lucky that it's great for growing). No epsom. The ratio used here is 1:1 for the Hydro & Calcinit. If you have floating crap after mixing your stock tank, you might be mixing it in the wrong order? ALL of the hydro first, stir it up until you can't see the hydro, followed by ALL of the calcinit. I use a spatula to stir up the powders in the water. People that have far larger tanks, use far larger objects for stirring. I always get a kick out of D9 talking about using a canoe paddle. I stir for a few minutes until no powder is visible in the tank and use a flashlight to see said powder on the floor of the tank because the overhead light in the room that houses my tents is nowhere close to the tank.

Just a quick post to thank Delta and all the other contributors to this system. Your thorough descriptions and answers make it easy to grasp this concept. Having read this thread twice I will now do a third time and make a shopping list. You have convinced me this is the best system and will be switching.

Now that you have ran this system is there any changes you see coming in the near future. Since I am creating a shopping list I want to include any new modifications.

I'm making stock concentrate solution. Thinking maybe I should mix directly into my res

Well I think we PPK'ers make a stock solution. I might be confusing the terminology. In the "unit grow", which I am running, the course of operations is to fill (and re-fill as needed) a volume tank (with water and fertilizer) which feeds, via tubing to a float valve, the control tank, which houses the wave-pulse pump and also feeds the bottom buckets for each plant. Volume tank = stock solution?
