many of you guys know me on here. some may not. ive been away for a bit but ive come back with motivation and determination to set up a LARGE PPK system.
the goal is to set up a large scale perpetual PPK system utilizing multiple different ppk's in sets of 12. every two weeks a new set will be started.
veg will be conducted in a 8x24 room and will have multiple stations where everything will get moved up to the next rung every two weeks in order to fulfill the cycle. these will be on flood and drain tables in pots of turface to keep the work to a minimum. CO2 will be supplied at 1200 ppm during veg to keep things moving quickly.
flowering will be done in an open room with 12' ceilings and tons of ventilation to keep things fresh.
as of right now the main strain is a very nice cut of OG Raskals OG Kush. we also have single plants of killingfields x bubba kush(Katzu cut i belive), chemmy jones and herijuana being flowered out to test, and mothers started just in case we get keepers.
more beans are popped but will not go into the PPK's until they are flowered out in an 8x8 coco room to test the legitimacy of the strains. got 501st OG, sweet tooth, pot of gold and jackberry popped as of today.
Each ppk system will only contain one strain. there will be no mixing to keep nutrient incompatibility to a minimum.
nutrients are as follows: jacks, the end
i like to keep things simple. jacks in a ppk with RO means 5.6 ph dead on with no fluctuation, end of story, at least IME, your mileage may vary
we may get a little crazy and add a bloom booster to one row of ppk to test and see if they are worth a damn or not. probably will use bloombastic but im open to suggestions since i havent bought it yet. i do have a gallon of liquid koolbloom so i may be a cheap bastard and use what i have rather than spend any money lol.
i am a huge fan of vertical lighting when temperatures permit but unfortunately i will have to run these horizontal with air cooled hoods as the summers are out of control in so cal.
lighting will be conducted with 20 1k's over the flower area and about 4k in veg as well as some t5's on the little guys.
still prepping the place and building day by day but the 8kw coco run will be vert scrogged after tomorrow or the next day if all goes well. i may be setting up my blumats once they are in place so i can have an occasional night off. i loves me some blumats in coco. match made in heaven!
thats all for now. stay safe and stay legal
