Now, I have a question for the vert crowd.
I run ebb and flow tables with 100% coco, like the simplicity and its ability to be let for extended periods if need be.
Anyone using vert with recirculating E&F
? Where would you place your fan for cooling the bulb?
This would be run in a 4'x4' DR120, with ventilation already in the top of the tent.
I am open to trying individual smart pot style containers with blumats, and with these I have an idea of how I would do the basic setup. (Have my eye on Hundred Gram Oz
Just would be nice to use the setup and equipment I already have as much as possible.
Got some time before the current crop is finsihed and one of the tents is freed up to think this through.
Great openning so far with the thread, Marlo
The way you speak of it makes it seem much less intimidating to anyone who might be hesitant about a major overhaul of their grow styles.
Got myself a seat at the desk, with my notepad out.
I am so tagged to this one.
Thanks to all who contribute their experience and ideas to this thread.
I haven't seen anyone do vert over an ebb and flow table, but I dont see why it couldn't work. For example, if you have a 4x4 table you can arrange your pots around the perimeter and have the fan in the center sittin on a milk crate, or a pot turned upside down maybe?
Something like this.......

As to your other suggestion, the smartpots n blumats would be a sweet setup too. I think Sunnydog had a vert tent with blumats is coco. I could be wrong tho. I'll see if I can find it....

I dig the PVC dealy-bobs, I made something similar for my Bio-Buckets (which one side of the 1800 lit, and will get light from the 1000's now too!), made a modular scrog for each bucket lid, this allowed me to lift each one individually to check for roots in the drain. Great minds think alike!
Yes, great minds think alike.
You gotta post some pics of that grow when you get it goin bro. Sound like its gonna be a nice one.
