i'll be ready when the time comes. i have it all broken down in pics too, if you like?
nice one, any questions you have let me know. maybe i should repost my complete building a coco slab set up thread from OG again? what hazyfontazy said about an inline filter is essential, or else you will end up with blocked drippers. it is also a good idea to add a stocking to the drain pipe so the coco gets caught in the stocking and never makes it back to the tank with the recirculating nutrient solution.
yeah man, that is very important if you don't want to have drippers blocking within a few days.
that is some of my WW 2 days before harvest.
the coco slabs are 1 meter long and approximately 13 cm wide.
you normally use Libra trays, or even better is a single waterproof table top with a drain at one end. this is what i use, you buy the pieces and glue them together to make a table of what ever length you need. you can also use corrugated roofing as a water proof table top. just make a stable wooden frame and place the roofing on it at a slight slant so the water runs off in one direction where the tank is.
but nothing would stop you using pots filled with coco and watering it the same way with drippers.
hi mate, the time will come and by then the info should all be here ready and waiting for you.
@ Farmer John
nice to see you here man, anything i can tell you about using the coco slabs and drippers, just let me know. i'd love to see a grower of your calibre get into the coco growing. will make for some cool threads
@ h g
coco in pots watered by hand is a good way to try the coco out and see what kind of potential it has. but to get all the full benefits of growing in coco, you need to have drippers hooked to each plant. the biggest benefit is the lack of hand watering, lol. only filling the tank every once in a while depending on how big it is. you can leave the plants ticking over and go on holiday as long as the tank is big enough to last till you come back. 7 to 10 days away are possible in the right stage of the grow.
